  • Good Days And Bad Days

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Feb 19, 2012

    Some days everything is right and others everything is wrong; to get through them place our faith in the Christ. When we put our faith in Jesus christ, we are to be bold in proclaiming that faith.

    Every day in our lives is not necessarily a good day. Once in awhile we experience bad days; maybe even some horrible days. Days which will make us question the possibility of another tomorrow or may even challenge our relationship with GOD. Hopefully, no one here is in the habit of placing more

  • Are You A Superhero?

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Feb 19, 2012

    A call to stand against the "god of this world" and go into the world around us proclaiming truth and justice to all

    This morning I want to talk about superheroes. Most of us are familiar with Superman. Daily Planet news reporter, mild-mannered Clark Kent would step into a phone booth, remove his glasses, change into a pair of blue leotards and shirt with a big red “S” on the front, red swim trunks, more

  • Do You Hear The Voices?

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Sep 12, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    A Grandparents Day sermon calling us to listen to the voices of Wisdom, as she reveals experience and tradition.

    Voices, soft, loud, sultry, or brash, they are all around us. Whose voices capture our attention? Do those strange little voices which roam around within our heads lure us? Or are we more captivated by the voices of those in positions of authority? Maybe the voices we really listen to are from more

  • How Rich Are We?

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Sep 12, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    A sermon to share with the congregation the need for serious and steady prayer concerning our church’s annual budget and the giving of the church.

    The internet is a wonderful source of information; although some is trivial, some useless, some is motivational, and some mind-numbing. Just for fun I went to a site called "Global Rich List." On this site there is a block where you insert your annual income, click on another button and it will more

  • The Love Of A Father

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Mar 22, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    Facing up to John 3:16 and exactly what it means to me, phrase by phrase.

  • Destined To Fish

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Jan 30, 2009

    How active are we in our search for the destiny which we are being called into? Simon, Andrew, James & John immediately followed their destiny.

    Each of us has an ambition in our lives and we will spend a large amount of our time seeking it. Our target may be economical such that we will attain a welcoming comfortable lifestyle. We could possibly seek and be elected to a political office to fulfill a public service vocation. Or maybe our more

  • Calves, Dollars And Idolatry

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Oct 14, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

    The Israelites "golden calf" relates to our idol-worship of the graven images of Franklin, Hamilton, and Jackson.

    The times they are changing, and I am not really certain I like what they are changing into. It appears the demise of our world economic system is imminent. Job loss throughout this country is at an all time high. Our most desperately needed natural resource, petroleum, is difficult to obtain, more

  • I Can't Tithe $50k

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Sep 21, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    Using the exodus of Israel to call the church to obey GOD’s call to tithe.

    A couple of weeks ago we talked about the Israelites preparing to leave their bondage in Egypt. You will remember they were told to prepare an unblemished, year-old, male lamb by roasting him whole, and they were to eat this lamb completely with no left-over’s. They were to supplement this meal more

  • Can The Church Afford Five Loaves And Two Fish?

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Aug 4, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

    A short communion sermon challenging the Church to feed the hungry in body and spirit, by looking at what we are doing for the hungry of the world.

    While attending seminary, each month the student body would gather for a general meeting, much like assembly at high school. We would have guest speakers presenting different areas of ministry for us to consider. On one particular Saturday we had a representative from one of the organizations more

  • Jesus' Compassion In A Father

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Jun 15, 2008

    A sermon for Father’s Day, calling all fathers to the mission Jesus set forth for us to follow.

    The musings of a child through the years: 4 years old: my Dad can do anything 7 years old: my Dad knows a lot, a whole lot 9 years old: my dad doesn’t know quite everything 12 years old: Oh well, naturally Dad does not know that either 14 years old: my Dad is so out of step with more

  • In Control Of Chaos

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on May 18, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    From the chaos before Creation through the chaos of today’s world, GOD is in control

    In the beginning the world was in chaos. There was no form, no function, no order, "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths." GOD was not pleased with what He saw and created the heavens, the earth, and all living things. "GOD said, “Let there be more

  • Tell Me About Holy Communion

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Aug 4, 2007
    based on 16 ratings

    A sermon using John Wesley’s "The Duty of Constant Communion" to teach some basics of the sacrament

    “O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so…” What do you suppose the Psalmist was referring to when he wrote these lines? Since they were written approximately 2500 years before the birth of Jesus, I doubt he was more

  • One For Dads

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Jun 17, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    A Father’s Day sermon written just 2 1/2 months after the passing of my Dad, but applies to all fathers.

    This has been one of the most difficult sermons I have ever written and will be one of the more emotional ones I have presented, yet it is something I feel I need to do. Looking back over the past few months we have lost three fathers and one mother in this congregation. Special occasions, such more

  • Why Look For The Living Among The Dead

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Apr 11, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    A sermon for Easter celebrating the living. Incorporates the passing of my father and his transition to eternal life.

    “On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark.” We might ask why Mary came to the tomb this early in the morning. If we return to the crucifixion and burial of Jesus we remember that according to Luke’s gospel Joseph of Arimethea asked for Jesus’ more

  • Tempting Good News

    Contributed by Ricky Johnson on Mar 11, 2007

    A sermon expounding upon the Good News in Temptations.

    When I first returned to the Church I found a reading schedule which allowed me to read through the Bible in one year. I had never read through the Bible so I decided to challenge myself to complete this task. While involved in this pursuit I would make notes of certain verses or thoughts I had more
