    based on 4 ratings

    David believes God will fill his cup to overflowing. But why would God do that, and what does it mean for us today?

    based on 3 ratings

    Preachers who habitually plagiarize other men's sermons are in danger of preaching outside of the Will of God.

    THE POTENTIAL PROBLEM The Wall Street Journal printed an article entitled: That Sermon You Heard on Sunday May Be From the Web; November 15, 2006; Page A1. Although the article seemed to focus on the ethics of plagiarism, what I found most disturbing was the allegation that many preachers more

    based on 1 rating

    Paul said to Titus - "Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you". But if you do these things, isn’t it a given that you will be despised or snubbed?

    Contributed by Maurice Mccarthy on Jul 9, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Recently had to deal with a bitter root that showed up in church. I had been reading Tale of 3 Kings just prior. Decided to speak about the Saul in me, rather than the Saul in others.

    Dealing With Spear Throwers PPT 1 Message Title In John 14:2 Jesus said, "I go to prepare a place for you." That verse primarily concerns heaven, but I want to take the thought of a prepared place and alter it slightly to say that not only does God prepare a place for us, but He also prepares more

  • The Truth That Will Set Us Free

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Feb 9, 2015

    If we look for it and listen for it, when we least expect it, a voice will say, “You are loved, you are affirmed, you are set free”. If we accept it, embrace it, trust in it, and let it penetrate every fibre of our being,

    A preacher, who was newly called to a small country town, needed to mail a letter. Passing a young boy on the street, the pastor asked where he could find the post office. After getting his answer, the minister thanked the boy and said, “If you’ll come to my church this evening, you more

    based on 15 ratings

    God supplies us with hope despite all the discouraging things that happen to us. A right sense of God’s love to us will make us not ashamed, either of our hope. When we are taunted about why we are waiting on God we can rest confidently in His promises.

    based on 4 ratings

    It’s time for the fathers to become real fathers, and really great fathers!

    I looked for a MAN among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so that I would not have to destroy it, but I found none. Ezekiel 22 : 30 Did you ever wonder why we celebrate Father’s Day after Mother’s Day? I opt not to answer that question, for more

    How is the Christian father to carry out his responsibilities

    Introductory Considerations 1. Passage from 1 Samuel not one we feel comfortable with.
