    This message is designed to help every believer perform acts of service and ministry.

    based on 1 rating

    I ask the question, how well do we know our commander in chief, Jesus? Do we allow him to help in the many battles we face throughout our lives. How prepared are we to follow his example of servant-hood.

    Servanthood: John 13 v1-16 At the American Revolution a man in civilian clothes rode past a group of soldiers repairing a small defensive barrier, their leader was shouting instructions, but making no attempt to help them. Asked why by the rider, he retorted with great dignity, "Sir, I am a more

    Peter and John give us a model for Christian acts of service and proclamation. Also, Peter’s sermon focuses on Good News now and for the future.

    Background: Two of Jesus’ disciples – Peter and John – are on their way to the temple for prayer (Acts 3:1). In other words even though they were the first Christians – believing and trusting in Jesus as Messiah, and having witnessed Jesus’ death and resurrection – they had not turned their more

    Contributed by Chris Jordan on Jul 25, 2014

    Jesus told us to love one another. We can do this in many different ways, through quality time, words of affirmation, giving of gifts, acts of service, and physical touch.

    based on 1 rating

    Take Hold of That Which Is Truly Life 1) Let go of your love for money; 2) Grasp on to your loving Saviour; 3) Let loose with acts of service.

    “Now this is life!” Have you said anything like that while kicking back on vacation with fishing pole in hand, or while taking in the sweeping mountain views from your rented cabin, or while floating on an oversized rubber ducky at a pool somewhere warm? What is it about moments like that that move more

  • Serving With The Right Motive Series

    Contributed by Chad Bolfa on Apr 14, 2009
    based on 8 ratings

    Tonight from this passage of scripture we will learn what God expects of us in our giving, keeping in mind again the overall theme of the sermon on the Mount, is distinctiveness, being different from the world, and it is no different in our acts of servic

  • The Hidden World Of Service

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Sep 25, 2006
    based on 4 ratings

    The contrast couldn’t be more stark. Jesus describes his ultimate act of service while the disciples argue over which of them will be the greatest! This sermon stealthily plunges the listener into this contrast; then pulls them out on the right side.

  • Language: How We Perceive Love Series

    Contributed by Paul Basehore on Feb 10, 2016

    Jesus told us to love one another. But what does that love look like? We all perceive it differently, but there are five "languages" that we use when we speak love.
