  • Sex: Guard Your Heart

    Contributed on Mar 8, 2021

    Practical, positive message. WHY does God say this? 1} God loves us. 2) God loves other people. HOW do we keep this? 1) Guard your heart, 2) Control your environment, 3) Seek God's help.

    SEX: GUARD YOUR HEART—Exodus 20:14; Proverbs 5, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 I once saw a cartoon: Moses is coming down from the mountain, and he says to the people, “I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that I got him down to 10. The bad news is that #7 is still in there.” The more

  • Fulfilling God's Purpose For You

    Contributed on Jan 15, 2021

    After a long night of healing at Peter's house, Jesus rose early to pray about his purpose and priorities. Our purpose is to a) embody the kingdom of God, and b) find our unique God-given purpose.

    FULFILLING GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOU—Mark 1:29-45 ***A man in Kanpur, India holds the Guinness World record for the longest ear hair. He had set the previous record of 5.2 inches, but 5 years later, he more than doubled his record with a length of 11 inches. One of his relatives praised his more

    based on 1 rating

    How is church relevant? Take Jesus to church. Confront Evil. Claim the Power of Jesus to transform. The authority and power of Jesus amazed everyone in the synagogue of Capernaum, and it makes church relevant today.

    GOING TO CHURCH WITH JESUS—Mark 1:21-28 We live in a time of declining church attendance. One reason is busyness; Sunday mornings are consumed with youth sports, catching up on the laundry or the lawn, or just chilling out after a busy week. Another reason might be that going to church is not as more

    Why did the four fishermen follow Jesus? They desired things to be made right in the kingdom of God, and they wanted their lives to count. How is God calling us? The time to respond is NOW.

    JESUS CALLING—Mark 1:14-20 ***Have you heard this riddle? “A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a glass of water. The bartender pulls out a gun and points it at the man with a menacing look. The man says, ‘Thank you,’ and walks out. What is going on?” It all makes sense, when you more

  • Jesus In Real Time

    Contributed on Jan 1, 2021

    Jesus is not an idea or concept, but a man Peter knew, the Son of God through the Spirit, and the Messiah. Through Jesus, we are adopted as children of God, and filled with the Spirit as Jesus was.

    JESUS IN REAL TIME—Mark 1:1-13 Who is Jesus? The name “Jesus” evokes mental images about God, religion, ethics, or personal faith. Some of those images might be warm and fuzzy, while some might be dark and dreary. Some might be reflections of personal ideals and biases—a Jesus who supports the more

    Contributed on Dec 1, 2006

    In Spain in the 11th century, the following hymn, Adon Olam [Lord of the World], was sung in Jewish synagogues: Lord of the world-he reigned alone While yet the universe was naught, When by his will all things were wrought, Then first his sovereign Name was known. And, when the all shall cease more
