  • Can Anything Good Come Out Of Nazareth Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Dec 7, 2014
    based on 34 ratings

    Nazareth would seem to be an insignificant backwater town. That's how most scholars have painted it. The city didn't even seem to make much difference in the life of Christ. But is there more to its story?

    OPEN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGlEte0qPFM What you just saw was the opening celebration for last year’s “Christmas in Nazareth”. It’s a 5 day festival that begins with the lighting of a Christmas tree and fireworks. In the following days there are parades, ...read more

  • Praying Like You Mean It Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Jul 14, 2019
    based on 4 ratings

    God says that we need to pray like Elijah did. But Elijah seems so far above me I'm not sure I could pray with the same power as he did. But apparently I can. Do you know why?

    I read the true story of a couple of men from Alberta, Canada who were driving home late one night. The weather was freezing - well below zero. Somehow, they ran off the road and got stuck in a ditch. And – as far as they could see – there was no one around for miles. They knew they were in danger ...read more

  • Jesus The Rabbi Series

    Jesus Jewishness is key to understanding his life

    Jesus Who? September 30, October 1 & 4 2007 Jesus the Rabbi Last week we looked at Jesus the Teacher, and you might wonder why we need to do a week on Jesus the Rabbi, since Rabbi is a Jewish term that means teacher. The important distinction being that he was a Jewish teacher. It may ...read more

  • Perfect Through Suffering

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 10, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    We are not complete until we are life-giving, and that means that we, like Jesus, must suffer.

    January 13, 2009 Strengths and Weaknesses We’d better get this one right, because if we don’t, life is pretty miserable. Our strengths are for others; our weaknesses are for our own growth. What we see in Hebrews here is an elaboration of the hymn St. Paul gives us in Philippians chapter 2. ...read more

  • Lesson 3: Don't Confuse The World's Values With God's Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Sep 27, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    In today's politically correct world it seems more and more Christians are swallowing some pretty bad stuff in order to 'get along.' The culture pushes back to get us to conform to the values of our culture. Paul comes against that and says you should thi

    In lesson three Paul takes aim, not at superstar pastors, but the philosophies and values of the world around us. The Corinthians were very much in the middle of a culture that valued philosophy and discussion as a way to arrive at truth. Paul's time before the Areopagus in Acts 17 was like that, ...read more

  • Fear Not!

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Dec 27, 2014
    based on 4 ratings

    What are you afraid of? Fears attack the most precious parts of our life and keep us from living the life meant for us. God wants to help us overcome our darkest fears as we learn to Fear Not.

    Opening illustration: (Our fearless covert evangelism in the Middle-East even when we had fear at the back of our minds of being found out and possibly face dire consequences) Introduction: We are fragile mortals, given to fears of every sort. We have a built-in insecurity that no amount of ...read more

  • China

    based on 3 ratings

    China is a great sleeping giant. Millions die each year without BENEFIT OF THE GOSPEL?

    Do you believe the gospel? Do you believe the Great Commission? Have you done all you can to reach the lost for Jesus Christ? A hundred and fifty years ago, Hudson Taylor started China Inland Missions with a call to go to China and reach the millions without Christ. The message today is the ...read more

  • Partnership Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Dec 21, 2011
    based on 3 ratings

    The establishment of God's will takes both the Spirit's power and our faithful obedience

    Luke 1:26-38 “Partnership” INTRODUCTION Most of us are content simply being a part of the crowd; we don’t want to be singled out. When a teacher asks his or her class a question, immediately all eyes are cast down and everyone hopes that they will not be the one on ...read more

    This is on the cleansing of the Temple.

    Last week recap: Palm Sunday and Triumphal Entry: donkey, crowds, cheering, etc. Mark places the temple cleansing on the next day, while in Matthew it appears to happen the same.

    Contributed by W Pittendreigh on Dec 23, 2003
    based on 50 ratings

    Christmas Eve service, 2003. Herod wanted to be in control and lost the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Do we want to be in control so much that we can’t submit to Christ?

    Herod didn’t know who he was. The King of Judea, the Great Herod, had no clue as to who this little baby boy was. Herod thought this baby was a threat. Matthew’s Gospel says that when Herod heard about the Baby Jesus from the Wise Men, he was greatly distressed. Greatly ...read more
