    Do you remember during your childhood, and perhaps our youth can relate to this now, when you had fallen deep in sleep? I mean you were past counting sheep and you were on cloud 9. Everything was perfect, and you were having the best dream you had in months. Then you were suddenly awakened by more

  • Revival And Prayer Series

    Contributed by Maximiliano Zapata on May 14, 2001
    based on 56 ratings

    The very word Revival implies that things aren’t as good as they need to be. It implies spiritual decay and inactivity.

    Last week, we talked about revival and the need for humility in seeking it. The very word, Revival implies that things aren’t as good as they need to be. To revive something implies that there is some kind of spiritual decay or inactivity going on and it needs to be revived, to be made alive more

  • From Frustration To Faith Series

    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on Jan 2, 2001
    based on 215 ratings

    Habakkuk was perplexed why god seemed inactive when both church and state of Israel was corrupt but was assured that God was working his purposes out.

    Do you sometimes get frustrated? If so, you’re not alone. The prophet Habakkuk did! The golden days for Israel when King David and King Solomon ruled a united and prosperous nation were long gone. The nation had split in two and was held in scorn by its powerful neighbours. But what was more

  • Some Assembly Required

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jul 1, 2002
    based on 66 ratings

    Designed for a day devoted to reclaiming inactive members, this sermon argues that the spiritual life is like a piece of equipment: unpack, read the instructions, assemble, plug in the power.

    Nothing you purchase comes ready to go. You can’t buy anything ready to use. Everything takes finishing and finagling before you can use it. You would think that when you have paid good money for your purchase, it would be ready. But not so. Something else always has to be done. more

    based on 4 ratings

    There are far too many inactive people in the churches today. Here’s a sermon that challenges us to be ready and to go to bat for Jesus. The message contains a baseball story to drive home the point.

    The Church Needs More Ready People John 21:15 – 21 15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Feed My lambs." 16He said to him again a second time, more

  • No Fools Here: Job's Young Friend Elihu

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 20, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    April Fool’s Day. Brash young Elihu is angry at Job and his friends for their inactivity. And he sees the extravagant, "foolish" mercy of God that foreshadows God’s forgiveness in Christ, "foolishly" spending His life for us.

    Of some folks they say, "He’s really just a big kid at heart". "He’s really just a big kid at heart." Which means that even if he is in his fifties and has grown-up children, a mortgage and a pension plan, even so he has that irrepressible urge to play. Even so he wants nothing more than to have more
