  • Living In The Now Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Aug 5, 2003
    based on 170 ratings
     | 29,113 views

    Instead of living in the future, God wants us to live in the now in light of the future.

    During the first Gulf War in 1990 and 1991 I noticed that many pastors in our communities changed their preaching during the conflict. No matter what they’d been preaching about prior to the conflict, it seemed like pastors throughout our nation decided that the conflict in Iraq would be a great ...read more

  • The Grand Finale Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Aug 5, 2003
    based on 60 ratings
     | 5,660 views

    As we follow Jesus in the now, we can expect events in our life to foreshadow the grand finale, when he returns again.

    One of the things my four boys love most about summer time is watching fireworks. Whether it’s at a fourth of July show, or a show after a baseball game, my kids love watching fireworks. But when we’re watching a fireworks show, I can just about guarantee that my younger boys will keep asking me ...read more

  • Who Is This Guy? Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Aug 5, 2003
    based on 64 ratings
     | 6,546 views

    As God’s unique Son sent for us, Jesus is unique and in a category all by himself.

    Some people have an amazing ability to walk into a foreign situation and immediately take charge of it. The recent Stephen Spielberg movie Catch Me If You Can is about a guy who’s like that. Catch Me If You Can is based on the real life story of Frank Abagnale, Jr. Frank Abagnale has one of those ...read more

  • Giving To Caesar, Giving To God Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Aug 5, 2003
    based on 55 ratings
     | 9,789 views

    We owe our nation our support, but we owe God our wholehearted devotion.

    As you all know, our nation is at war. We’ve been expecting it to come for several weeks, but this week it finally came. And whenever war comes, it comes as a tragedy for all involved. And the dilemma for me as a pastor is what to preach about today. I’m sure many pastors will be interrupting ...read more

  • Extravagant Devotion Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Aug 5, 2003
    based on 68 ratings
     | 5,978 views

    Following Jesus means living a life of extravagant devotion to Jesus.

    Most people in our culture seem to think that it’s okay to be religious so long as you don’t take your religion too seriously. Many people today treat religion and faith as a kind of hobby, as if some people are into stamp collecting, some people are into building models airplanes, and other people ...read more

  • When The Church Fails Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 76 ratings
     | 4,419 views

    Our failures in the Christian community remind us of our need for total and complete dependance on Jesus.

    Like you, I’ve been watching the terrible scandal surrounding the abuse of children by priests in the Roman Catholic church. And the worst part of the scandal isn’t the abuse of children, as horrible as that is. The worst part has the cover up, that rather than stepping in and removing sexual ...read more

  • Threading Camels Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 74 ratings
     | 2,900 views

    The call to follow Jesus takes priority over every other obligation in life, and when we have a lot, it is difficult to respond to that call.

    I was raised by a single mom from the time I was three years old until I was about nine years old. Back then we lived in a small trailer in Los Angeles. My mom was on welfare. I remember at one time having a teenage runaway living with us, and he would baby-sit me at night while my mom worked. We ...read more

  • Another Kind Of King Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 74 ratings
     | 3,399 views

    Jesus Christ’s entry into Jerusalem reveals Jesus as the promised king, the humble king, and the unexpected king.

    Note: This sermon was introduced with scene 49 from the play "Traveling Light." As Americans, most of us don’t like kings very much. After all, that’s why we fought a revolutionary war in 1776, to be free of the tyranny of a king. Even though the king might be a benevolent king, he’s still a ...read more

  • The Barren Temple Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 103 ratings
     | 12,430 views

    Christ’s cursing of the fig tree and "cleansing" of the temple caution us about living our lives by mere appearances and trusting in anything other than Jesus.

    Appearances can be deceiving. I was reminded of this several years ago when I was waiting in line at a McDonalds with two of my sons. A guy came into McDonalds who looked really suspicious. He had long hair, tattoos everywhere, several body piercings, and he just looked scary. This guy seemed to be ...read more

  • Beyond Family Values Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 75 ratings
     | 4,463 views

    Following Jesus takes us beyond family values to embrace God’s Kingdom values in our family relationships.

    I’ve been reading some authors this week who are deeply concerned about the decline of traditional family values (Dr. Richard Saller, "Family Values in Ancient Rome" www.fathom.com/feature/121908). These authors are concerned that fewer and fewer women are wanting to invest in their children as ...read more

  • Believing Is Seeing Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 63 ratings
     | 5,191 views

    Our faith in Jesus Christ progressively heals us of our spiritual blindness.

    (Note: This sermon was introduced with scene # 32 from "Traveling Light") I’ve always had a secret fear about going blind. Out of all my senses, sight would be the most difficult for me to live without. Maybe it’s because I love to read so much. I always hated those assignments in high school ...read more

  • Not Who You Think He Is Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Mar 12, 2003
    based on 71 ratings
     | 3,623 views

    Being a Christain means confessing that Jesus is the Messiah, but our views of what a Messiah should be doesn’t always fit Jesus.

    As I as watching a Lakers game this last week, I saw Kobe Bryant put on an amazing shooting performance. Kobe set an NBA record by making 12 three point shots during the game, nine of the shots he made in a row. It was truly amazing to watch. I was excited, the fans at Staples Center were excited, ...read more

  • An Explosion Of Glory Series

    based on 65 ratings
     | 4,667 views

    Christ’s glory was hidden in his humanity, affirmed by the Father, and revealed most fully in his suffering.

    On Monday we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. day. Schools are closed, our church office is closed, some of you have the day off, all to commemorate the life work of Rev. Martin Luther King. The day before Rev. King was assassinated he delivered his final sermon in support of sanitation workers on ...read more

  • The Outer Limits Series

    Contributed by Timothy Peck on Jan 16, 2003
    based on 136 ratings
     | 14,953 views

    When we follow Jesus, he will lead us beyond our comfort zone with people, especially people we are not naturally drawn to.

    Note: This sermon was introduced with a scene from "Traveling Light" All of us have limits and boundaries that make us uncomfortable if we go beyond them. I was reminded of this back in November when my oldest son and I went to the Promise Keepers "Passage" event at the Anaheim Pond. At one ...read more
