    based on 2 ratings

    JESUS He began His ministry by being hungry, yet He is the Bread of Life. Jesus ended His earthly ministry by being thirsty, yet He is the Living Water. Jesus was weary, yet He is our rest. Jesus paid tribute, yet He is the King. Jesus was accused of having a demon, yet He cast out more

  • Jesus This, Jesus That

    Contributed by Peter Loughman on Oct 27, 2006

    Story – Jesus this, Jesus that. Few years ago I was talking with folks from this church – they needed a pastor. Really liked their church, seemed like great people. After awhile I noticed – Jesus didn’t seem to have anything to do with this church. Presbyterian – by the way. I, pointed more

  • The Jesus Store

    Contributed by Bobby Scobey on Apr 26, 2007

    The Jesus Store. There was a woman once who wanted peace in the world and peace in her heart, but she was very frustrated. The world seemed to be falling apart and her personal life wasn’t that great either. One day she decided to go shopping, and she went to the mall and walked in to one of more

  • Jesus Was Thirsty

    based on 1 rating

    Jesus said, "I am thirsty." No wonder he was thirsty. Loss of blood. Exposure. Heat. Exhaustion. Dehydration. He’s been on the cross now for 6 hours. The sweat rolls off him like buckets. It’s hot. And the flies are buzzing around him. The crowds taunting him. The blood mixes with the sweat as it more

  • Authority Of Jesus

    Contributed by Peter Loughman on Jun 21, 2007

    AUTHORITY OF JESUS It is obvious that I love the Spurs NBA basketball team. Tim Duncan, who is on the San Antonio Spurs, is at the moment considered one of the greatest players of the sport.

    The Authority of Jesus Years ago I was on a trip to Israel with my seminary. We were taking a tour of Jerusalem and the church of the Holy Sepulcher.

  • Jesus Is Stronger

    JESUS IS STRONGER Remember the Road Runner cartoons where Wile E. Coyote chases the Road Runner cartoons and inevitably end up in a tight situation?

    Time for Jesus Suppose you walked into your kitchen one morning and found Jesus sitting at the table. What would you do? Would you say: "Jesus! I'm thrilled to see You! I just wish I had time to talk, but right now I'm running late for work. When I get home tonight, we'll have a nice visit"? more

  • Jesus Stands ...

    Contributed by Sermon Central on Feb 12, 2009

    JESUS STANDS READY During the years of 1980s, I traveled quite a bit from Washington D.C. to New Jersey to go between my father and mother’s house. As a 10-year-old I traveled alone on planes, so news stories about planes and travels were on my radar, so to speak. So, in 1982 when January 13th more
