  • The Lost Sheep

    Contributed by Joanna Beveridge on Nov 22, 2006
    based on 14 ratings
     | 1,760 views

    When Jesus compares us to sheep, it may not be flattering, but it is apt.

    Sheep don’t have a very good image, do they? If I asked what your favourite animal was, I doubt very much that any of you would say “sheep”. Our view of sheep is somewhat negative. We don’t say positive things like “Oh, he’s as strong as a sheep” or “She’s as wise as a sheep”. How about “as ...read more

    The wise person will seek only Godly counsel, even though it is not flattering, and can be hard to hear.

    READ: 2 Chronicles 18:1-27 (Text verses 6-7). [TELL STORY OF AHAB / JEHOSHAPHAT / MICAIAH] Tonight I’d like to start with THREE (3) PROPOSITIONS: Firstly: 1. MANY PEOPLE SEEK ONLY COUNSELLORS WHOSE WORDS ARE APPEALING. Ahab had a host of such "prophets" around him - he had lulled ...read more

    We want a refreshing person. No special education required. They need to sense the hidden needs, must love without expectations and must encourage. Flatterers are not wanted.

    “A Minister Of Refreshment” 2 Timothy 1:15-18 We would like to create a new staff position. We want a refreshing person. No special education required.

    These sayings picture the harm done by those who deliberately use their tongues or words to damage the reputations of others. The contentious spark strife and thus disrupt the peace of the community, fellowship or assembly.

    PROVERBS 26:20-28 IN CRITICAL CONDITION According to the Associated Press, on a windy day in March [1997] a father and his son came to Valley Forge National Historical Park, where George Washington stationed the revolutionary Army during the difficult winter of 1777-1778. The father and son ...read more

  • "Mirror, Mirror On The Wall"

    based on 493 ratings
     | 24,827 views

    God’s Word, the Bible, is the only reliable mirror that tells us truthfully what we are like before God. Other mirrors may flatter us, but God’s looking glass tells it like it is!

    “MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL!” James 1:22-25 Introduction: The title of this message is “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall!” Does anybody know where that saying comes from? ( ANSWER: Snow White). The wicked witch in that story sure liked it when the mirror told her that she was the ...read more

  • Psalm 12 Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Sep 15, 2018
     | 198 views

    The opening words suggest that this psalm is an appeal for help during bad times when evil men dominate. There are times when sin seems rampant, sweeping all before it like a tidal wave.

    March 3, 2014 Tom Lowe Psalm 12 Title: To the chief Musician. Upon the Sheminith*, A Psalm of David. *Sheminith (eighth), a musical term found in the title of (Psalms 6:1). A similar direction is found in the title of (Psalms 12:1) Comp. 1Chr 15:21. It seems most probable that Sheminith denotes ...read more

    based on 8 ratings
     | 4,408 views

    When you seek God for mercy and grace, he is willing -- freely willing -- to give you mercy and grace. Christ doesn’t need to be urged or begged; he hears us before we can even speak it! Christ doesn’t need to be paid or flattered; he heals freely. Rea

    I’ve been reading through the Sermon on the Mount in the gospel according to Matthew over the past few days. It begins in Matthew 5, when Jesus goes up on the mountain. He sists down with his disciples and begins to teach. If you go through and read what Jesus says, it probably won’t take you ...read more

  • Lips Free Of Deceit God Hears

    Contributed by Tessie R. Simmons on Sep 11, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,425 views

    God hears the prayers of those who live honestly, with lives free of deceit.

    David comes to God praying that God hears his prayer because he speaks truth. Speaking the truth is a “prayer formula” that even those who don’t serve God know. Everybody knows the mouth must not speak deceit, flatter, or lies if the mouth wants to speak to God. But this ...read more

    based on 25 ratings
     | 743 views

    8. Nowhere is the Christian’s faith presented with a greater challenge than in the work place. The Christian who has learned to worship God in spirit and truth and has become a good parent, mate and citizen is often shocked to realize that the moment he

    The Devil Goes To Work INTRODUCTION: 1. Christianity is definitely not a religion for wimps. 2. It takes a great deal of courage, conviction and faith to be able to walk the walk and talk the talk, to dare to be different. 3. The word holy means set apart. 4. Christians are the true non ...read more

    based on 23 ratings

    According to Scripture the “ego control mechanism” is the Word of God – the Bible. Uncontrolled egos have a way of slipping out in our speech. This message looks at 3 “slips of the tongue” regarding our ego.

Romans 12:3 Romans 12:3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

  • The Kisses You Do Not Want Series

    based on 114 ratings
     | 27,946 views

    Even back in Bible times (where they did a lot of kissing) there were certain kisses you didn’t want. And the worst kisses were those of enemies and betrayers. How did God say we should deal with people who attempt to deceive as those would?

    (A Poem) Oh, innocent victims of Cupid, Remember this terse little verse To let a fool kiss you is stupid But to let a kiss fool you is worse. (Readers Digest 2/77 p.103) As I noted a couple of weeks ago, the Bible is just filled with kissing. They did a whole lot more kissing back then ...read more

    1. FRUITFUL – not in vain Vs. 1 a. 1 Corinthians 15:14-17 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be ...read more

  • Herod Killed By An Angel Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Apr 26, 2017
     | 2,573 views

    Many heathen kings claimed and received Divine honors, but it was far more horribly impious when Herod accepted such idolatrous honors without rebuking the blasphemy, for he knew the word and worship of the living and true God. And such men as Herod....
