    Contributed by David Smith on Nov 13, 2007
    based on 16 ratings

    A Pharisee and a tax-collector bump into eachother at the temple. This looks like a sitcom! ...

    “Jesus told them another joke”, we are told, “and He told this one to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and looked down on others.’ Now, I suspect that your translation probably says ‘parable’ rather than ‘joke’, but I think ‘joke’ is actually a very good more

    Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is like a great big party!!! But this is a party with a twist to it. ...

    Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying: "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, ’Tell those who have more

  • Jesus And Sinners Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Nov 13, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    If we are going to be disciples of Jesus then we must adopt His attitude toward sinners, and follow His example in reaching out to the lost.

    Introduction: A. I think that most of us know that God loves sinners and wants them to be saved. 1. The Apostle Paul wrote, “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, more

    A man had two sons, and I bet he wished he’d had more daughters! ...

    Jesus said "What do you think? A man had two sons; he went to the first and said, ’Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ He answered, ’I will not’; but later he changed his mind and went. The father went to the second and said the same; and he answered, ’I go, sir’; but he did not go. Which of more

    ’I do not box as though beating the air’ - the little known fight career of St Paul! ...

    Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. (25) Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one. (26) So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as more

    Jesus is the greatest teacher who ever taught. In this sermon we discuss what made Him such a great teacher, and what His teachings will do for our lives.

    A. Did you hear the story about the teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his boots? 1. She pulled while he pushed and the boots still didn’t want to go on. 2. Finally, after the second boot was on, and she had worked up a sweat, the little boy said, “Teacher, they’re more

    based on 1 rating

    A man comes to Jesus with an open heart and mind. The Lord reveals to him some of the most amazing truths found in the Bible. Is it time you had a good, honest, talk with God?

    Do you ever look for something so hard that you can’t find it? Maybe it’s just my age kicking in but sometimes I’ll lose something in the most obvious place possible. I think so hard about where I put it that I forget to look in the most likely place. I figure that I would have remembered easily if more

  • The Outcast Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Dec 11, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    Do you ever feel like you have to keep everyone at arms length because you just don’t trust them? Perhaps you feel like who you are is just not acceptable. Jesus comes to such a person in John 4 and engages them in a patient yet revealing dialog that chan

    Picture this: Your political beliefs put you in the small minority. The majority party, in fact, shuns you. Socially you are considered not really part of the nation because your ancestors were immigrants. Spiritually your stands made you unpopular, and leave you confused. Morally you have made more

    In this sermon you will consider the phrase, Jesus the Prince of Peace, taken from Isaiah 9:6.

He believed more

  • More Than Robes And Ritual Series

    Contributed by Stuart Blount on Dec 29, 2007

    As this letter paints a magnificent and majestic portrait of Jesus it highlights the immensity of how our lives are affected as a result of who Jesus is and what he has done for us. What better way to inspire those whose faith is flagging or whose hearts

    AIM: To elevate our perspective of JESUS so that any sense of flagging faith is renewed by a fresh understanding of the importance and significance of JESUS. Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians, probably 2nd generation, whose parents had embraced ‘Christ’ as Messiah and so these people had more

    A look at the scene at the well to help us have Jesus’ heart for the lost, understanding about God’s desire for worshippers, and insight concerning peoples’ reaction to the Gospel.

    Souvenir. It’s from French, for “memory.” It’s an object a traveler brings home for the memories associated with it. Something you keep to help you remember where you were. In my office, I found I have several: a rock that is a fossil from our place in Hillsboro; Mickey Mouse clock from more
