  • On A Morning Like This

    Contributed on Mar 26, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    We think of Easter as lovely, yet many people are troubled and distressed as they come on Easter morning. Mark 16:1-8 is for people like that, as Mark's gospel ends with the women "trembling...bewildered...afraid."

    ON A MORNING LIKE THIS—Mark 16:1-8 “In the sky the song of the skylark greets the dawn in the fields wet with dew The scent of the violets fills the air on such a lovely morning as this Surely on such a lovely morning as this Lord Jesus came forth from the tomb.” John Carden, A Procession more

  • Protecting Families In An Ungodly Culture

    Contributed on Mar 23, 2018

    In an ungodly culture, Jacob (and we too) protects his family, not by withdrawing into a cocoon or fighting the culture wars," but by eliminating idols, prioritizing worship, and renewing the vision of the family.

    PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY IN AN UNGODLY CULTURE—Genesis 33:18-35:15 Is it more difficult to raise a godly family today than it used to be? The world seems more dangerous: drugs, school shootings, abuse and rape. Social media allows bullying and peer pressure to come to our families, 24/7. The more

  • Wrestling With God

    Contributed on Mar 23, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    In the darkness, which we all feel at times, Jacob wrestles with God. He asks for assurances of blessing (which he already had), but instead, he gets God! Jesus also wrestles in the garden, giving up control, and God raises him from the dead.

    WRESTLING WITH GOD—Genesis 32 (Children’s Message: afraid of the dark?) Are you afraid of the dark—or the darkness? Maybe the darkness is in the hospital, or a war zone, or you found yourself jobless or on the edge of bankruptcy. Maybe the darkness was anguish over children, or marital more

  • Rising Above The Turkeys

    Contributed on Mar 23, 2018

    When people try to make changes, other people may hold them back. As Jacob tries to overcome his scheming nature, Laban drags him down. God intervenes, so that Jacob can rise above that old turkey, Laban, and his own nature as well.

    RISING ABOVE THE TURKEYS—Genesis 30:25-31:55 “I could soar like an eagle, if I didn’t have to deal with so many turkeys.” My uncle raised turkeys. Turkeys are pretty stupid. They are always crowding each other, pecking at each other, fighting over food, so they can get big enough to be more

  • More Than We Bargained For

    Contributed on Mar 22, 2018

    What happens when we try to bargain with God? We get more than we bargained for! We get to build our character, confront our past, and learn how to cope with difficult people.

    MORE THAN WE BARGAINED FOR—Genesis 29:1-30:24 The young man gets into the car, and hits the steering wheel with his palm. His girlfriend—the light of his life—has dumped him. How could God let this happen? He has loved her well, and honored God in his courtship. What has it gotten him? The more

    Robert Schuller tells of a time early in his ministy when he was experiencing great opposition. He was unable to sleep, panic-stricken, and the thought came to him, "Schuller, you’re cracking up." He desperately prayed, "Jesus Christ, are you dead or alive? I’ve been preaching it every Easter.

    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
