  • Children Of Light

    Contributed by Ed Lu on Aug 10, 2019
     | 348 views

    Entitlement becomes our constant companion to rationalize what’s right is wrong and unless I am the beneficiary of love, peace and joy then something is terribly wrong with the Church.

    Children of Light (John 12:35-36) Many expect to be given God than they are to search for God. They want to be handed all the blessings of peace, prosperity, and providence which somehow they think God represents but they fall short of diligently seeking Him. That if I do what the pastor ...read more

    Sylvan Way Baptist Church August 4, 2019 Pastor David Welch “The Art of Encouragement” Introduction The number of times something appears in Scripture often indicates importance.

  • God Is Love, And We Are Not

    Contributed by Randall Long on May 30, 2019
     | 1,839 views

    A lot of us go through life with a watered-down idea of what God's love is. We will look at two incidents from the Gospel of Luke in which someone met that love face to face to help us understand both His love and His holiness.

    There is a saying that appears a few times in the Old Testament. Proverbs 9:10 puts it like this: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom". Other verses use slightly different wording, but they all declare the value of the "fear of the LORD". I was troubled by that ...read more

  • "but I Want To Fight Back!"

    Contributed by Randall Long on Apr 1, 2019
     | 1,113 views

    Instead of fighting back when someone does us wrong, we can witness that He is greater than whatever has been taken from us.

    The teaching in today's passage is hard for the average person to swallow. When I first read it as a child, I flat-out told Jesus He was wrong. Adolescence refined me; in high school I remarked that this was a lovely thought, but that it just wouldn't work in the real world. Oddly ...read more

  • Heal The Wound, Leave The Scar Series

    Contributed by Shawn Andrews on Mar 14, 2019
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,520 views

    Big Idea: Forgiveness is healing the wound, even if it leaves a scar. Forgiving others means choosing not to be imprisoned by the actions of our offender. Jesus will heal our wound, but the scar remains to remind us of God’s work of grace in our lives.

    INTRO: STORY: Last year, you all know I had shoulder surgery. I didn’t want to have surgery. I avoided it as long as possible. But eventually, my shoulder hurt all the time. It became debilitating. It was only when I became aware of what my wound was keeping me from, was I willing to do ...read more

     | 1,984 views

    Big Idea: Judging others infects our hearts with hypocrisy. Loving others makes us more like Jesus. Judging others chains us to punishment. Loving leads us to grace, and leaves justice to God.

    INTRO What’s harder than forgiving someone? Forgiving is hard and painful work. Why do we do it? Because we want to be healed from the weight of unforgiveness, and the emotions that come with bitterness. That’s what we’ve been talking about in this series. When you are forgiving, you are ...read more

     | 1,273 views

    Big Idea: God cannot heal what we do not feel. If you want to be healed of the bitterness that is stealing your joy and harming your relationships, you need to repent before you can forgive.

    INTRO: So over the last few weeks I’ve listened to many of you about the challenges of forgiveness...how hard it is...but how much we all need it! Shawn and I were compiling a little list of some of the things we’ve heard.... “You made me mad. Now I have to deal with this.” “I can’t stay where ...read more
