    based on 6 ratings
     | 10,114 views

    This sermon looks at how God honours our prayers and dedication even when we are spiritually dry. When we do not 'feel' like serving him but serve him anyway. It encourages perseverance, stretching out, prayer and faith that God can do 'big things'.

    Perseverance in a dry place John Ortberg from Menlo Park Presbyterian Church recalls A man I'll call Paul (because that's actually his name) told me he recently started going to church. In his mid-seventies, with no faith background, he woke up one morning with a sudden urge to hear the ...read more

    Contributed by David Owens on Sep 24, 2018
     | 13,673 views

    Introduction: A. You have probably heard the glib saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” 1. Although it is true that suffering can lead to blessing, it is easier to say it than experience it. B. One day a young man who sold magazine subscriptions door to door, came home with $25 which he ...read more

  • Gatekeeper, Gateopener

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 19, 2000
    based on 77 ratings
     | 7,832 views

    The pastor has two roles that must not be reduced -- a gatekeeper to guard against useless ideas and hateful attitudes, and a gateopener to let in God's surprises.

    Do you think the Lord has a sense of humor? I do. I see a delicious little coincidence that God’s word drops in our laps today. Some of us remember a 70’s TV program, the Mary Tyler Moore show. If you remember that program, you will recall that sweet, nice, loveable Mary lived in an apartment ...read more
