    The world can put up with many church members with no problem at all. If you don’t make waves with your faith the world will tolerate you. You can go to church once in a while. That doesn’t bother anybody. But ...

     | 9,740 views

    The Christian message is foolishness to our world. But God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom. Christians can only boast in God, and not in ourselves. And Christians maturity is about having God’s Spirit, not our own wisdom. It’s about having the mi

    By Guerin Tueno Imagine yourself a member of God’s heavenly selection committee. God has given us the job of putting together a profile of the sort of person that Heaven’s looking for.

    No foundation other than Christ will survive the storms of life and the coming judgement of God.

    This morning, we continue our journey through the parables of Christ, and in light of the weather we’ve been having lately, I thought it would be appropriate to consider one that has to do with rain.

    Where Are You Leading God’s People? 1) Into foolish boasting? 2) Into self-indulgent living? 3) Into danger of God’s judgment?

    I’m sure that everyone here has at one time or another played the game “follow the leader.” I remember it being a favourite for my classmates and me in grade one. We spent countless hours leading each other up, over, and around playground equipment during recess. While you might think that it’s ...read more

  • The Pains Of A Relevant Pastor

    Contributed by Norris Harris I on Feb 5, 2003
    based on 104 ratings
     | 13,268 views

    I thought it would be profitable if we would use this Preaching moment to highlite THE PAINS OF A RELEVANT PASTOR. For I am foolish enough to believe that A RELEVANT PASTOR WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE PAIN THAT IS PAIRED WITH THE TASK OF TENDING THE FLOCK

    One who is Hurled, Thrown into the Path of a People who are Bent on Self-Destruction Must Be Relevant. He must be Germane to a Grieving Generation. His Applications must be Appropriate for the Aches of His Age. His Preaching must be Pertinent to the Problems of His Parish. His Sermons must be ...read more

Last week I eluded to the fact that school was starting up. That goes for people at all different levels of their education. And the whole ...read more

    based on 127 ratings
     | 15,367 views

    Now I acknowledge the fact that in the natural order it sounds foolish, even funny to talk about Water being Thirsty! Who ever heard of water getting dry and needing a drink? What could quench the thirst of water? If water got thirsty, what would it ask f

    Holy Father, I ask that You order my steps in Your Word; that you temper my temperament as I teach the text; that You pace my passion as I pull and promote proven principles from this powerful passage; and that You allow my proclamation to be powered by purpose. I offer this petition in the ...read more
