  • How To Grow God's Kingdom

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 22, 2015
     | 2,538 views

    We, like the disciples, are expected to bear fruit by spreading the seeds of faith-namely, the Good News of salvation-and nurture it as best we can. Then, we have to let God go to work. God will eventually reap the harvest and save those who hear His word

    The Gospel reading from Mark 4:21-34 is a series of parables about the kingdom of God. Jesus used parables to explain the kingdom because the kingdom is so vast that our limited human minds can't understand it on our own. Jesus used these parables to explain the kingdom in terms that we, the ...read more

     | 2,511 views

    When we allow the Holy Spirit in our lives, nothing can stop us. We have a power that can overcome everything the devil throws in our way-even the opposition of our earthly family. That power is the awesome power of God!

    Have you ever done something that made other people wonder if you have lost your mind? If so, you can probably understand what is going on in Mark 3:20-35. This takes place early in Jesus’ ministry when word of hid teachings and miracles is starting to spread. Jesus’ earthly family and ...read more

  • Answering God’s Call

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 20, 2015
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,987 views

    What response will we make to Jesus when he enters our lives and invites us to “repent and believe”? He announces a call and invites us to answer with a new way of thinking and acting.

    In Mark 1:14-20, we hear the story of the start of Jesus’ earthly ministry. He is beginning his ministry just as John the Baptist is ending his ministry. Both of them called on the people to repent. The main difference between both ministries is that while John the Baptist was a one man show, ...read more

  • The Compassion Of Christ

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 18, 2015
     | 1,951 views

    When we come to a deserted place, God welcomes us with his healing grace and peace. He renews us and sends us out to share his gifts with the world. When we get tired, we come to God for rest and refreshment, and then the cycle continues.

    How many of you have had days where you’re rushing from one appointment, event or chore to another without having time to get rest or have a decent meal? How many of you have had days that have been so busy that you didn’t have time to cook and instead went to a fast food restaurant? ...read more

  • Jesus, Our Hero

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 17, 2015
     | 1,093 views

    Jesus calls on us today to be heroes like him. We can be heroes like Jesus by doing things such as making our beds, washing the dishes, helping our parents with chores around the house or doing things for our friends or neighbours.

    Good morning boys and girls! Can anyone tell me what a hero is? A hero is someone who helps someone else, especially when the person being helped is in danger. Who are your heroes? Sometimes we like to imitate our heroes by copying the way they act or the way they dress. Have any of you ever ...read more

  • The Heavenly Miracle Worker Still Works Miracles Today

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 16, 2015
     | 1,050 views

    Jesus is still hard at work in our lives today. He refuses to listen to people who want him to stop doing his work. He is still busy answering prayers and performing healings today....and I for one am certainly grateful that he is.

    Good morning boys and girls! Have your parents ever told you not to do anything or that you couldn't go someplace where you really wanted to go? Well, Jesus certainly knows the feeling. The same situation happened to Jesus in today's Gospel reading. Some people tried to tell him to leave ...read more

  • Jesus, The Demon-Slayer

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 15, 2015
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,167 views

    Every single one of us will find it necessary to offer the courage of endurance throughout our lives. The easiest way for evil to win is not through bombs or bullets, but through the slow erosion of commitment and courage to stand against the current.

    There was a little old lady who would come out every morning on the steps of her front porch, raise her arms to the sky and shout, "Praise the Lord!". One day an atheist moved into the house next door. Over time he became irritated at the little old lady. Every morning he would step out onto his ...read more

  • Shalom. Bring Down The Walls

    based on 39 ratings
     | 15,755 views

    There are walls which divide gender men and women. There are walls of social status that divide the affluent and the poor. Walls are all around us. And for many these walls bring a sense of comfort, and protection. Updated July 2018.

    For those not familiar with an Anglican Service there are four Scripture readings prior to the Message. Today's assigned readings are: 2 Samuel 7:1-14; Psalm 89:20-37, Ephesians 2:11-22, and Mark 60:30-34, 53-56.

  • Long-Distance Healing Comes By Faith

    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,808 views

    There are heroes of faith in every walk of life.Each and every one of us can be heroes of faith. All we have to do is invite Jesus to help us make the most of our lives. We have to ask him to do the right things in life and act accordingly.

    It was known as the Roaring Twenties. It was a time very much like to the Soaring Nineties. Morals were being turned upside down. The Stock Market was rocketing to new heights. "Let the good times roll" was the national motto. Perhaps the biggest name of the decade was a man named Babe Ruth. He ...read more

  • Follow Me To A Great Catch

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 13, 2015
     | 2,481 views

    God shook up Peter because he wanted to shake up the world. He can also shake all of us up so he can shake up the world-and boy does it ever need to be shaken up. When we obey God, we will become fishers of men.

    The story of Jesus teaching from the boat in Luke 5:1-11 occurs early in his earthly ministry. He preached to the crowd, and then he asked Peter to do something that did not make sense to Peter. He asked Peter to go fishing in the daytime. As someone who had fished in this particular area for most ...read more

  • The Three Faces Of Evil

    We have a choice-be like John or be like Herod. Will we be weak like Herod, easy tempted and easily manipulated, or we will be strong in our moral convictions like John?

    How many of you have ever watched a horror movie or read a horror story? It’s not always a pleasant experience, is it? As strange as it might seem, there are actually some horror stories in the Bible, and one of the most famous of its horror stories is the story of the death of John the ...read more

  • Part Of The Family Of God

     | 2,199 views

    How many of you like to go out on a nice, sunny day and play with your friends? Has anyone ever said that they can't play with you because they don't like you, or because of where you live, or because of who your parents are?

    Good morning boys and girls! How many of you like to go out on a nice, sunny day and play with your friends? Has anyone ever said that they can't play with you because they don't like you, or because of where you live, or because of who your parents are?

  • Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 9, 2015
     | 3,189 views

    When we receive the bread and wine during Holy Communion, we are holding Christ’s very body and blood, which was nailed to the cross and poured out for our forgiveness. We have seen it with our own eyes and felt it with our own hands and on our tongues.

    Have you ever heard of the old saying, “Good things come to those who wait”? If so, the story of Simeon, Anna and the baby Jesus in the temple in Lune 2:22-40 is a good example. The coming of Christ involved all manner of waiting on God. A young maiden, a dying man and an old widow all ...read more

  • Come, Long Expected Jesus

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 8, 2015
     | 1,605 views

    If we obey God’s will for our lives like Mary and Elizabeth did, we will be richly blessed like they were because we will be blessed by the light and life of Christ-a light that shines brightly in our dark, sinful world.

    Anne couldn’t think of a good reason that God should give her a grandchild. And even though it was one of her deepest desires, she had almost given up on the idea. God had already blessed her with two wonderful children. Her son decided to remain single and had devoted his life to Bible ...read more

  • The Promise Of Mary’s Miracle

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jul 7, 2015
     | 1,682 views

    The marks of greatness in God’s sight are the same marks of greatness that Jesus showed us-humility, self-sacrifice, total dependence on God and total obedience even unto death. The only place of honour in God’s kingdom is the place of service.

    Do you believe in miracles? Well, I certainly do, because earlier this year I saw God work a miracle in the life of my mother. One night she had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance because of breathing problems. I followed the ambulance in my own car. After several tests and x-rays, the ...read more
