  • Just Like Us (Part Seven) Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Mar 25, 2019

    Today we close out the series on seeing how the people of the bible are just like us. We've looked at Abraham, Samson, Elijah, Joshua, David, and last week we focused on Peter. Today, we'll finish by looking at Paul. Let's see how he was just like us.

    JUST LIKE US (part seven) Last week we looked at Peter. Peter was the foremost of the Apostles. He was a leader and devout follower of Jesus. He withstood persecution and was bold and courageous in contending for the faith. Tradition indicates that Peter met his fate being crucified upside down more

  • A Thorny Issue Series

    based on 1 rating

    Did you know “thorns” are mentioned 57 times in the Bible. Two of the most famous references are here and Jesus’ crown of thorns. A thorn is considered a curse of the ground, yet it is from a thorn bush we pick our most beautiful roses.

    A THORNY ISSUE II CORINTHIANS 12:1-10 INTRODUCTION: Did you know “thorns” are mentioned 57 times in the Bible. Two of the most famous references are here and Jesus’ crown of thorns.

  • Prayer (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Scott Bayles on Apr 12, 2019

    What do you do when God says no? In 2 Corinthians 12, Paul sets an example by praying about his problems, praying with persistence, and discovering the true power of prayer.

    Prayer (2) Scott Bayles, pastor Blooming Grove Christian Church: 3/1/2015 Last Sunday we began a brief series on prayer. In Matthew 6, Jesus reveals four secrets to a successful prayer life, urging us to pray sincerely, pray secretly, pray simply, and pray securely. But even when we follow more

  • Turning Thorns Into Roses

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jun 3, 2018

    The decided weakness of Paul, which he called his “thorn” was kept vague so everybody could relate to whatever type of aggravating affliction, discomfort, constant temptation, emotional or physical or bouts.

    14B Elif Shafak wrote “be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you. It is a sign that you will soon be showered in roses”   1). The thorn “thrown”at Our Lord in our Gospel reading today was actually the rude comments by his hometown folks who dismissed him as being “all too more

  • A Thorn In The Flesh

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Feb 17, 2022
    based on 1 rating

    We know that God is able to heal, but sometimes we aren’t healed. This message looks at one possible reason why, as we examine an illness that the apostle Paul wrestled with for most of his Christian life - his "thorn in the flesh."

    This evening we are going to look at a passage of Scripture that is related to the subject matter of healing. In the Scripture we discover that our God is a God of healing. He says in Exodus 15:26, “I am the Lord who heals you.” We also read that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, heals us as well, for more

  • Focusing On Our Relationship With God Series

    Contributed by Alis Cerrahyan on Jun 23, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    We don't always receive the answer we are looking for every time we pray. Can we continue to revere God even after He has turned us down?

    Prayers are our personal communications with our heavenly Father through his only begotten son Jesus Christ the Saviour. As we fall on our knees at the Cross upon which an amazing exchange has taken place in order to save us from eternal doom; we find that God has already pruned away the spiritual more

  • In Weakness Power May Reach Perfection

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jun 30, 2018

    how can we reach out to the thousands of souls starving for faith, hungry for Christ?

    Fourteenth Sunday in Course 2018 Power Made Perfect “Where did He get all this?” We’ve all heard rags-to-riches stories of men and women who have started out with nothing and succeeded beyond all expectations.

  • Trials Of Suffering

    Contributed by Alexandria Jimenez on Jun 30, 2018

    We aren't promised to never experience suffering, but how do we react and handle it, when our lives become the target to suffering?

    Can you imagine the emotional state, along with the nerve wrecking distress that Jesus Christ himself felt the day before he was nailed to the cross? Can you imagine the hours, down to the minutes, and then the seconds, that our Father counted till his ultimate sacrifice, and our ultimate more

  • When God Says No

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jul 8, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Like Paul, we all have a "thorn in the flesh." We can learn from Paul that God allows it, Satan sends it, and we can accept it. Because when we are weak, then we are strong, with God's strength on display through our weakness.

    2 Corinthians 12:7-10 When God Says No Have you ever received a “no” answer from God? It hurts, right? You think you know best, you really do. And then God says, “I don’t think so.” Well, it particularly hurts when you’ve been suffering, and not only does God not remove the suffering, but more

  • The Crutch Series

    Contributed by John Sears on Nov 21, 2013
    based on 6 ratings

    Is Christianity a crutch for the weak minded and naive? How should Christians respond to the criticism?

    I wonder if you have heard this statement. It goes something like this. “Christianity is only for those who are weak; it only offers consolation to life’s losers.” Have you heard it or seen this criticism? Just watch TV or go see a movie sometime. Read comments under Christian Facebook more

    Contributed by David Owens on May 17, 2010
    based on 10 ratings

    Paul learned to accept his thorn in the flesh as a gift from God, and allowed it to bless and benefit his life.

    Introduction: A. I want to start with a true story that illustrates the overall lesson I hope we will learn today. B.
