  • Grumpy Or Joyful

    Contributed by Greg Carr on Mar 7, 2010
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,106 views

    Joy is a state of happiness when we are in communion with God, which leads to gladness, and delight.

    Have you ever met any grumpy people? Don’t say any names out loud! I would imagine that every one of us have seen them from time to time. A grumpy person sees everything in a negative light. They only see the bad in life. They only see the imperfections of others. They are overly ...read more

    Where is the joy in our church? There is so much frowning and silence in a place where there is so much reason to celebrate. This sermon explores the problem.

    One of the greatest indictments against modern evangelical Christians today, is that we are like a bunch of grumpy old men; marked by pessimism and more interested in pushing political agendas and in winning intellectual arguments than in offering a unive

  • A Parable Of Chutzpah

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on May 3, 2015
     | 838 views

    We need to approach prayer with a sense of bold, unhesitating urgency--with chutzpah. We have no worries--unlike the grumpy, groggy neighbor, God never slumbers and is always happy to hear from us.

    Jesus gave His disciples the Model Prayer, and followed with a story about someone in need of “daily bread,” a parable that conveys the attitude our prayers should have—we should approach God an unhesitating sense of urgency. The story was a common situation for our Lord’s ...read more

  • I've Got Joy?

    Contributed by Carla Powell on Dec 22, 2007
    based on 3 ratings
     | 2,579 views

    This sermon was preached on Gaudete (Joy) Sunday (3rd sunday in Advent). I wasn’t feeling very joy-filled, though I felt called to preach on joy (and used that hesitancy as part of the sermon focus). It’s my best "grumpy sermon on joy" ever.

    It’s been a rough couple weeks for me. My wallet was stolen last Wednesday. My step-grandfather died – two days ago. I woke up feeling sick and lost my voice - yesterday. Almost got stuck in the snow last night. Had to park around the corner and traipse home in the deep snow with the wind whipping ...read more

     | 1,420 views

    Prepared for Palm Sunday 2010 but also focusing on the Cross and beyond, this sermon affirms the fulfilment of prophecy on ’Palm’ Sunday and suggests that Jesus was fully prepared to fail in the eyes of the world, as he knew God would ultimately vindicate

    About six years ago a friend of mine said, “The trouble with being a leader today is that you can’t be sure whether people are following you or chasing you.” Jesus was in his early 30’s and he was heading towards Jerusalem (19:28). Three years of ministry had catapulted Jesus into the limelight. ...read more

  • Addressing The Realities Of Life Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 23, 2015
     | 2,225 views

    Being human is generally a good thing. The temptation in our day is to manipulate or engineer human nature and deny its realities. But a church is about real people, redeemed by Jesus, but fully human — even more human — because of that redemption.

    Addressing the Realities of Life (I Timothy 5:1-16) 1. Some people have a sanitized view of life. Life, however, is often less glamourous. 'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a ...read more
