    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,021 views

    A short Ash Wednesday Sermon that encourages us to see that your life is not about you, but Jesus’ life is

    Ash Wednesday has always presented me with a problem. As I read and research the scriptures for Ash Wednesday I get the feeling that God is saying, Hey Richard, hey Ray, hey….(and mention others) wake up to yourself, life is not about you, there are more important things in your life than ...read more

  • Transfiguration

    Contributed by James Jerpseth on Mar 1, 2001
    based on 69 ratings
     | 2,669 views

    The word Transfiguration is another way to say transformed. We too have been transformed by the power of hte resurrection and hte love of Jesus.

    One of my favorite parts of confirmation is the day we spend in the Church going over the special vocabulary that we have in the Church world. It is a funny thing that we have a different "Churchy" name for everything that we would otherwise call by its normal or non-churchy name. For example, ...read more

    I am giving up Lent for Lent this year, at least the way the Church typically does Lent. Lord is not interested in what I give up for just 40 days and return to it. He is interested in me giving up the sins in my life which will make Easter more joyous

    TITLE: GIVING UP LENT FOR LENT SCRIPTURE: ST LUKE 9:22-24 / II CORINTHIANS 13:5-6 Although Easter is the most significant of the Christian holidays it does not enjoy the kind of enthusiastic fanfare afforded Christmas or even Thanksgiving.

  • Discipleship - Doing The Father's Will Series

    Contributed by Nigel Heath on Mar 17, 2009
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,281 views

    We focus too much on the love of Jesus for us at the expense of focussing on Jesus’ love for the Father. True disciples devote themselves to doing the will of the Father as Jesus did.

    8.2.09 DISCIPLESHIP – DOING THE FATHER’S WILL - Luke 9 INTRO How many of you here are observing Lent in one way or another. Some people observe Lent merely out of ritual or as a tradition. I was astonished and somewhat bemused when Liz told me of someone she knows who is giving up swearing ...read more

  • Fasting Or Feasting?

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Aug 26, 2009
    based on 15 ratings
     | 5,013 views

    One of the most powerful weapons of spiritual warfare that God has given to His children is fasting ... it will highly strengthen you spiritually. It is being hungry for God and feasting in the Holy Spirit leading to a REVIVAL.

    Opening illustration: A priest and a rabbi are discussing the pros and cons of their various faiths, and inevitably the discussion turns to repentance. The rabbi explains Yom Kippur, the solemn Day of Atonement, a day of fasting and penitence, while the priest tells him all about Lent, and its 40 ...read more
