    based on 2 ratings

    Based on James 3: 3-12, this message looks at the sins of loose lips and the way of dealing with them through discipline and a change of attitude.

    Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, what does the phrase “Loose Lips Sink Ships” remind you of? For some of you it may be a war-time poster. This phrase originated during World War I in England. Enemy spies frequented local pubs listening on the seamen’s conversation, until after a few pints of more

  • Why Jesus Concentrated On Only Twelve Disciples

    Contributed by Paul Fritz on Sep 20, 2006

    Why Jesus Concentrated on Only Twelve Disciples by Paul Fritz Mark 3:14-3:14 In a world where bigger is usually assorted with better, it seems that Jesus might be considered a failure by today’s standards. After all, the Lord spent most of His time with only twelve disciples, one of whom more

  • I'm Not Jumping Series

  • Obedient To Jesus?

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Sep 30, 2006
    based on 1 rating

    Are we being obedient to Jesus (building our house on the rock) or are we being disobedient (building on sand)? What does obedience mean? This is a challenge to be obedient.

    Danger! Keep out. Beware of the dog! Don’t talk to strangers. Follow me. Make sure you’re home by midnight! Failure to comply will have consequences. Jesus brings the Sermon on the Mount to an end with a warning. Jesus does not beat around the bush. He is not woolly. He does not waffle. He is more

  • Christ Glorified In Us

    Contributed by David Johnston on Sep 30, 2006

    This message deals with Christ’s prayer in John 17 for His disciples sanctification and our need to live a sanctified life for Christ to be glorified in us.

    Not much is said about the disciple’s conversions… that is… Some he saved, he said, “Go and sin no more… Or Thy sins be forgiven thee." Some say that weren’t saved until they got the Holy Ghost… (meaning Holy Ghost baptism and salvation are together as one work) Acts 19:1 And it came to more

  • On The Road With Jesus

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Oct 3, 2006

    Jesus taught the disciples but they did not always understand! This short homily encourages listeners to ask questions; it also reminds us that God knows about everything we do; and that is both comforting and challenging.

    Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin! Of course, it is always likely that God’s word will make us uncomfortable! When we turn to God’s word, seeking the voice of God, there is always plenty to hear; and this short Bible event is packed full of God’s wisdom, and God’s call to us. Jesus more
