  • Don't Cling To Me

    Contributed by Brian Buriff on Sep 30, 2006
    based on 3 ratings

    Using the illustration of Exit Glacier in Seward Alaska, examining the reason why Jesus said to Mary, “Don’t cling to me”?

    I. INTRODUCTION A. Stop Clinging? – Why??? 1. Why forbidden? a. nature so new, fresh - could be defiled easily? b. nature so new, fresh - would zap her dead (fly zapper) 2. Clue is in the nature of her clinging a. Greek = “fastened to, hold tight, adhere to, she wouldn’t let go” b. Jesus more

  • The Ascension Of Jesus

    Contributed by Scott Jensen on May 3, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

    The Ascension is an important part of the ministry of Jesus. He came to save our sins and He will come again when we least expect it. Be ready!

    The Ascension of Jesus Acts 1:1-11 In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. 3 To them he presented himself alive more

    Contributed by Bill Butsko on May 3, 2008
    based on 2 ratings

    Jesus demonstrated God’s power through the Holy Spirit and left that power to every believer as He ascended into Heaven.

    Text: “…He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight” (Acts 1:9). When Jesus started his ministry on earth, He preached these words: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). Prior to Jesus’ appearance on earth, “the kingdom of heaven or the kingdom of God” more

  • Out Of Sight

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on May 5, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    For Ascension Sunday: Whether we work diligently when our supervisor is out of sight is a measure of commitment and character. Compare Matthias, who took a job he did not ask for; and Joseph Justus, who was passed over.

    When you see your supervisor, you work. When you do not see your supervisor, you may work, but your work style is likely to slow down. The difference between those two things is the measure of your character and your commitment. When you see your supervisor, you work diligently. You know that more

    based on 3 ratings

    Live with An Ascension Attitude 1) Cheer the great things Christ has accomplished 2) Count on Christ’s continuing rule for your benefit

    The cost of gas has gone up again. It’s predicted to keep rising until it hits $1.40 per litre this summer. How does that make you feel? Does your stomach churn as you calculate the cost of driving to work? Are you rethinking that summer camping trip? Do you fear what other costs will go up as a more

  • Your Part In The Story Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Jun 2, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    God begins the write an exciting story after Jesus returns to heaven. He does it not through kings and princes but through ordinary people called to extraordinary things through the power of the Holy Spirit. What’s your part in the story God is writing?

    Every good story contains lots of drama and action. The story we are about to study has it all: ship wrecks, riots, chases, miracles, prison breaks, magic, the supernatural, snakes on a plain, courtroom drama, powerful preaching and debating, strong bonds made and broken, and lives changed. The more

  • A Life Of Victory Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Mcleod on Nov 22, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    It’s worth following Jesus—even if it brings mistreatment—because, in the end, there will be victory.

    THE BIG IDEA: It’s worth following Jesus—even if it brings mistreatment—because, in the end, there will be VICTORY. Think about how absurd Christianity sounded back when it was brand new (in the first century): Christians worship a man who was executed as a criminal and who they claim came back more

  • On The Up And Up: Jesus'ascension Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jul 8, 2008
    based on 2 ratings

    esus’ Ascension is connected both to the Resurrection and the Second Coming of Christ. It is an extension of the Gospel and a foundational belief that has important ramifications.

    On the Up and UP: Jesus’Ascension (Acts 1:9-11) 1. It can be tough to say “Goodbye.” 2. It was hard when our daughter moved to Washington or our son went away to Bible College. 3. Indeed, if you are like me, you will probably ever see most of the people with whom you graduated high more

  • Jesus Keeps Hanging Around

    Contributed by Kl Burrus on May 29, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus is hanging around to let us know that he loves us just the same. If you go on in Jesus name, if you go on according to his word, you will never walk alone.

    1 Corinthians 15:5-8 / Jesus Keeps Hanging Around 5And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7After that, he was seen of James; then of all more

    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on Jun 22, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    The Bible records a Calendar of Events in the story of redemption by Jesus as Red-Letter Days: His Birth, Cross, Ascension, the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and the Second Coming.

    RED-LETTER DAYS IN GOD’S CALENDAR Here’s my calendar for July. (………) I mark up the days which have a special meaning for me or an event to watch out for. Last month I did have a calendar event – it was my birthday! That was a ‘red-letter day’, something which marks an important day. I won’t tell more

  • Life Elevated

    Contributed by Daniel Haas on Aug 8, 2009

    The whole idea of Christ elevated is totally incomprehensible, or if you will: heavenly / for those of us who are able to understand Latin: celestial.

    Life elevated Let me show you the two standard issue License Plates of our state, both of which feature the slogan: Life Elevated Depending on whether you are the winter or summer type you either pick the Arches or the Greatest Snow on Earth. I pick the Snow. Either of them refer to the strengths more

  • He Lives

    Contributed by Andy Payne on Apr 30, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again. These words have been on the lips of believers for almost 2000 years. For a few dark days, it appeared that all was lost, as the disciples of Jesus, his closest friends huddled in an upstairs room,

    INTRO: Christ has died …… Christ is risen ……… Christ will come again. These words have been on the lips of believers for almost 2000 years. There is an air of assurance and confidence that all is well in the Christian church. Though for a few dark days, it appeared that all was not well, and more

  • A Sermon For Trinity Sunday

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on May 27, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    Acts 2 verses 33-35 are strangely, and sadly, not found anywhere in the weekly lectionary. I have sought to address them here, in their immediate context.

    A SERMON FOR TRINITY SUNDAY Acts 2:32-36 This is a compact set of verses, brim-full of theological gems: i. The crucifixion of Jesus (Acts 2:36); ii. His resurrection (Acts 2:32); and iii. His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 2:33). The passage is also Trinitarian: more

  • Union With Christ Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on May 11, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Our union with Christ in Ephesians 2:5-7 shows us what God has done and why he has done it.

    ARISE! GET UP! COME FORTH! John 5:1-9; John 5:21-30 The miracle [literally “sign” (John 4:54)] of the healing of the boy at Capernaum is immediately followed in John’s account with another healing, this time at an unspecified feast in Jerusalem (John 5:1-9). THE NEED (John 5:1-5). A man more

  • What Goes Up Must Come Down

    Contributed by Nickolas Kooi on Jun 5, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    A law of gravity is this: What comes up must come down! We see that this is true in our faith life as we look at the Acts reading of the Ascension of Jesus.
