  • Sight Unseen Series

    Contributed by Pat Cook on May 30, 2006
    based on 68 ratings

    When the Risen Jesus told Mary Magdalene not to cling to Him, it was because Jesus wanted Mary to have a faith that went beyond the 5 senses. Jesus asks us to walk by faith, not by sight.

    John 20:10-18 – Sight Unseen Today I am preaching 2 different sermons on the same passage of Scripture. That’s really the power of the Bible – there is so much good stuff in there. Two different people can preach on the same passage and get 2 completely different sermons out of it. The same more

    based on 160 ratings

    In Christian life, it is easy to be distracted. As we consider the story of Jesus at Mary and Martha's, we see the causes and cure for distraction.

    Introductory Considerations 1. Opening dialogue from person of Martha showing anticipation and excitement of Jesus coming to town, desire to give best, the work and the anger she felt - the story from her perspective. Teaching 1. I wonder if Martha were here to today, would this be how she more

    And so Joseph got up in the middle of the night, and he and Jesus and Mary made their way to Egypt. They were sent to Egypt.

    WHEN CHRISTMAS CAME TO EGYPT Scripture Reference: Matthew 2.13-15 ILLUSTRATION When I was growing up in East Saint Louis, around this time of the year I developed what I call a new profession. I had chores around the house that I was responsible for, but this job was not mom-appointed, more

    Contributed by Tim Gibson on Nov 23, 2000
    based on 203 ratings

    Around the table with Jesus only Mary had the correct focus. This sermon examines all the different foci of those represented.

    Updated: 3rd April 2001 (was previously only in ’skeleton’ form) (1) INTRODUCTION: According to Rev 3:20, when we ask Jesus into our lives He comes to feast with us! In this story, there are many people around that table with Jesus but all with a different ’FOCUS’ - Mary is seen as having more

  • What Can We Learn From Mary Magdalene?

    Contributed by Carla Powell on Jan 2, 2002
    based on 298 ratings

    Investigates some common misconceptions about Mary Magdalene. We can learn how to love Jesus from Mary’s persistence, sincerity, and enthusiasm.

    Today is the day when we honor Mary Magdalene, dedicated follower of Jesus. Legends about Mary Magdalene abound. In fact, Mary Magdalene is probably most well-known for false details and unproven facts in her life. Often she is identified as a former prostitute, but there is nothing in the Bible more

  • Welcome Jesus Into Your Home

    Contributed by Michael Otterstatter on Aug 28, 2001
    based on 64 ratings

    The familiar story about Jesus visiting Mary and Martha serves as an encouragement for us to clear the clutter that keeps Jesus out of our homes and lives.

    “For Christian homes, O Lord we pray.” Hymn 500 in our hymnal begins with those words. Whether we are married or single, whether we have children or not, whether we live in a home or an apartment that is our prayer isn’t it? We want our homes to be Christian homes. But what makes the place more

  • Lord, Stretch Our Faith!

    Contributed by Wade M. Hughes, Sr on Mar 17, 2008

    I use a rubber band and an extension cord to illustrate how Jesus stretched Mary and Martha’s faith for their brother’s healing.

    LORD, STRETCH OUR FAITH! By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. I did this lesson in two parts, it could be done in one part, just move quickly from point to point. I have a huge rubber band and we discuss the flexibility and stretch that the rubber band has. 1. The rubber band has a more

  • The Forgotten Father Of Christmas

    Contributed by Bradley Kellum on Dec 2, 2009
    based on 26 ratings

    When preachers talk about Christmas it’s usually about Jesus and Mary. But what about Joseph; the silent father? What do we learn from his life of devotion and faithfulness?

    “The Forgotten Father of Christmas” Matthew 1-2 INTRODUCTION Usually at Christmas time, preachers spend a lot of time talking about Jesus’ miraculous conception, which I did last Wednesday. And the virgin birth leads you and I to think about the fact that Jesus was conceived apart from more

  • When Jesus Calls My Name

    Contributed by Pat Damiani on Apr 21, 2006
    based on 208 ratings

    When Jesus called Mary’s name that first Easter morning, it made a tremendous impact on her life. Jesus still calls our name and it ought to impact our lives in a similar way.

    As we go through life, many different people call our name. And it’s amazing to me just how many different messages that can be conveyed to us, depending on just how people call our name: • When we’re growing up, our parents call our name. Sometimes that is done in a very calm, gentle, loving more

  • Deciphering The Da Vinci Code

    Contributed by Rodney Buchanan on May 7, 2006
    based on 19 ratings

    The book conflicts with history and Scripture at several important points: 1. The nature of Jesus Christ. 2. The nature of the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. 3. The nature of Scripture. 4. The nature of the church.

    I received an interesting phone call a few weeks ago. The woman on the other end explained that she presently lived in another state, but she and her husband were planning to move to Mount Vernon. She wanted to know about our church to see if she would feel welcome here. She said, “I am a very more
