  • Those Who Are Forgiven Much

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 19, 2022
     | 372 views

    Church life can become awful conventional, safe and predictable. One day Jesus met a woman who blew all of that away.

    Our text for this morning is a surprising story of the reaction that different people had when they met Jesus. It is Luke 7:36-50. I encourage you to open your Bible so you can see it for yourself. In the pew Bibles it is on page 66 of the New Testament section. And please stand for the ...read more

  • Amazing Faith

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 19, 2022
     | 407 views

    It may be hard to find a place to put our faith in this modern world, but Jesus encountered a man who had amazing faith and we can learn from him.

    I think we can all feel that right now our culture is really struggling to find faith. We talk about it in different ways. We talk about the need to restore family values. We talk about the need for spirituality. We may not talk about it, but I think we feel a need for a sense of purpose in ...read more

  • Miracles

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 19, 2022
     | 586 views

    It can be confusing to understand when to expect God to intervene in our lives in the form of a miracle and when not to expect it. Jesus' encounter with a widow who had just lost her only son can give us some clues.

    Two weeks ago we wrapped up the account of the Sermon on the Mount from Luke’s Gospel. This morning we take up the story again of the amazing things that happened as Jesus traveled from town to town in Israel, announcing and demonstrating the kingdom of God. This morning’s text is Luke 7:11-17. ...read more

  • Excuses, Excuses

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 19, 2022
     | 399 views

    If you had the chance to go back to the time of Jesus and follow him as a disciple, would you take it? Jesus pointed out that there were people who saw his ministry and saw John the Baptist's ministry, but made excuses rather than commitment, so they missed out.

    I love preaching through the life of Jesus. There is something about his teachings and the things that he did that just stretches me again and again. Any time I start to think I have it all figured out, I just need to take another look at Jesus, and I know there are more wonders still ahead for ...read more

  • Giving

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 605 views

    Jesus teaches us a strange math, that when we give to others, we gain more back than we gave.

    It was a very long time ago that I learned the basic math facts in school. If I have two hymnals, and I can find people to give me two more hymnals, how many hymnals will I have? Four. I came out ahead. And now that I have four hymnals, if I give one away, how many will I have? Only 3. I’ve ...read more

  • It's A Matter Of The Heart

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 184 views

    Our words and actions flow out of the condition of our heart.

  • Talking Religion

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 113 views

    Many of us have a hard time talking with others about our faith. Jesus gives us a good example.

    “1 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and his disciples began to pick some heads of grain, rub them in their hands and eat them. 2 Some of the Pharisees asked, `Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?' 3 Jesus answered them, `Have you never read what David did when ...read more

  • Men Who Shook The World

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 249 views

    This sermon was preached 12 days after September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center was destroyed in New York. It looks at the sacrifice made by the terrorists and calls us to invest ourselves to shake the world for Christ.

    The whole world is still shaking from the events of September 11, the hijackings, the buildings destroyed, the mass deaths and destruction, the world efforts to put together a coalition to finally stamp out terrorism, the layoffs and financial troubles of the airline industry, the upset of the ...read more

  • Candidates For God's Kingdom

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 173 views

    In the beatitudes Jesus turns the values of our world upside down.

    As we work our way through Luke’s Gospel, we have looked at a string of stories that explain why it was that such a good guy as Jesus had enemies. He hung around with disreputable people. The Pharisees developed a long list of rules for what you can do and can’t do on the Sabbath. But Jesus ...read more

  • How To Get Rid Of Your Enemies

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Apr 14, 2022
     | 391 views

    The world is torn apart by people reacting to their enemies in ways that just cause further provocation and pain. We all need to know God's way for responding to those who come at us as enemies.

    What do you do when people do nasty things to you? What do you do when things happen like someone treating you like an enemy, hating you, cussing you out, abusing you or stealing your coat? That makes it harder to be a Christian, doesn’t it? Everyone here has had an encounter with someone who is ...read more

  • Showcase For Saints Or Hospital For Sinners?

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Feb 19, 2022
     | 566 views

    There is a temptation for us to put on our best front in church, a false front, and to especially welcome those who looked really good. But Jesus saw the church as especially for those who don't have it together and we will be wise to follow him.

    When I was a boy, my mother used to tell us to be careful about the friends we picked. If you pick a study partner at school who doesn’t want to do school work, you won’t get much done. If you start going out at night and roving the town with kids who like to make trouble, it won’t be long before ...read more

  • Hidden Gold

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Feb 19, 2022
     | 389 views

    This sermon follows a short skit describing the reality TV show, American Pickers. They scanned junk and found value in it. Jesus did the same when he found Matthew, the hated tax collector.

    Jesus was a picker. He travelled the back roads of Israel looking for rusty gold. He saw amazing things buried in people's hearts. What most people saw as junk, he saw as disciples who could change the world. Each person had a history all his or her own. There was no such thing as a nobody ...read more

  • Follow Me

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Feb 19, 2022
     | 406 views

    Jesus calls all of us to follow him. And if he could use a hated tax collector named Levi, he can use us.

    Where do you turn to find wisdom today? We now have access to incredible amounts of information, but how do you sort out what is important? We have the technology to do so many things, but how do we decide which of those things are worth doing? We can travel very fast, but as we race through ...read more

  • They Left Everything

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Feb 19, 2022
     | 609 views

    We may have strong attachments to the normal routines of life, but God may call us to break out of the mold and give us a life of excitement and purpose that we had never dreamed of.

    You may have heard news reports recently about a young man with the name of Douglas McAuthur McCain. He was the first American that we know of who died in Syria fighting for ISIS, the Islamic State. And you wonder, “How in the world did an American end up dying as a jihadi in Syria?” The ...read more

     | 590 views

    There are people who need Jesus, but just aren't going to come to church on their own. Here's how you can help them come to Jesus.

    Our text for this morning is another one of those stories of an amazing day that stuck vividly in the memories of his disciples. When you follow Jesus you never know what is going to happen. . Our text for this morning is Luke 5:17-26. 17 One day, while he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of ...read more
