    This sermon gives people a time for them to allow God to search their heart.

    The Lenten Season is one of preparation and self-examination. We have looked at “Facing Temptation,” “Where’s Your Citizenship?” “My Way or God’s Way,” and “Choose Your Side.” This psalm (139) is a deep, introspective work.

    This sermon is about overcoming comfort, complacency, and cowardice.

    Turn with me to James 4. Read James 4:13-5:11. A lot is covered in this passage, but it points to some very important conclusions. We cannot be comfortable, complacent or cowardly. James, in his most practical style, calls us to be completely sold out to God. A life that is God-filled will ...read more

    This sermon is about answering God’s call.

    Ring, ring! “Hello. Who is this?” The call. How often do we answer calls? They come on the telephone. They may be a letter or e-mail. Calls come in different shapes and sizes. If you have noticed during a baseball game the manager will make the “call” to the bullpen to get a relief pitcher ...read more

    This is about David’s affair with Bathsheba and the murder of Uriah.

    Have you ever heard someone say, “Oh, the Bible is so boring. It’s just a bunch of ‘begets’ and ‘begots’ and a bunch of stuff that happen thousands of years ago”? Our passage today certainly cannot be considered boring. We have a sex scandal at the highest levels of government. There are ...read more

    This sermon relates the grief of David over the death of Absalom to God’s grief over our sin.

    Turn with me to 2 Samuel 18. Read 2 Samuel 18:24-33. Here we see a sad picture. King David is well advanced in years. He is no longer the young vibrant man that he once was. He is a broken man.
