  • The Power Of Shared Suffering

    Contributed by David Simmons on Nov 26, 2000
    based on 113 ratings

    Because Jesus understands our suffering, we do not suffer alone.

    INTRODUCTION If I were writing the Bible, I probably would have left this passage out. After all, we have here not the image of the powerful Messiah that I would like to show off, but the figure of fear and frailty. For centuries we have recognized that Jesus was all God and all man, but here it more

    Your older brother, Jesus, understands your problems and temptations. He will protect you against the world’s biggest bully. He will deliver you from your greatest threat - death.

    Your Big Brother Jesus Heb. 2:14, 15 INTRO.: I’ve never had an older brother. I am an older brother, so I know a little of what it’s like. An older brother is someone who sticks up for you in a fight and blames you when Mom is angry. He gets the new clothes first and you have to wear more

  • Storms

    based on 10 ratings

    This life is full of the storms of sorrow, problems and anxiety but Jesus understands and wants to replace our fear when we place our faith in Him and realize He is in the storm with us.

    THOUGHTS ABOUT THE PASSAGE: A little over 75 years ago a little known American inventor, born of Russian descent named Vladimir Kosma Zworykin began to work for the Westinghouse Electric Corporation. Over the next few years Mr. Zworykin worked on an idea called an iconoscope and a kinescope. The more

  • The Boy Jesus

    Contributed by Rodney Buchanan on Dec 4, 2005

    The mystery of the incarnation helps us to know: 1. God’s strength is in his apparent weakness. 2. Jesus understands the human condition. 3. God’s desire is to be with us.

  • Jesus: How To Be A Follower In Times Of Despair Series

    Contributed by Rick Long on Feb 12, 2004
    based on 79 ratings

    Fourth in the series "Meet the Cast." As you study Jesus’ life you realize that even though He did not lay aside his deity, He did humble himself as a man, to serve all humanity. So Jesus understands what we are facing in our lives.

    I love the way “The Passion of The Christ” movie begins, with the reminder that 400 years before Jesus was born his sacrifice was foretold in a vivid way. Isaiah 53:5 (LB) But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed--and we were more

    POSITIVE PRESENCE IN THE FACE OF PERSECUTION A Study in the Churches of Revelation Revelation 2:8-11 INTRODUCTION: Last week we began our series “Everybody is Known for Something”, and explored what we should be known for based on Christ’s conversation with the church at Ephesus. We found more

  • How To Deal With Failure

    Contributed by Dale Pilgrim on Jun 14, 2005
    based on 41 ratings

    This sermon considers the all-too frequent reality of failure in our lives. We’ll look at disciples of Jesus who were well versed in it and how they dealt with it. There is hope!

    FAILURE -- the word conjures up a bad mental taste. It is such a predominant reality among us that there is an E-magazine website – with a wide selection of failure paraphernalia – mugs, t-shirts, baseball caps! Who has not tasted the bitter drink of failure – an exam; having to more

  • 2001 Person Of The Year

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Dec 12, 2001
    based on 121 ratings

    What is greatness? Jesus redefines it here. Could you fit into the category of "greatness"?

    Matthew 11:2-11 2001 Person of the Year The year 2001 is almost over – a little over two weeks to go. Who was the most influential person in the world, this past year? Every year, Time Magazine picks out someone to be their Person of the Year. Here’s the criteria – in the last 12 months, more

  • The Deserter Series

    Contributed by Guy Caley on Apr 11, 2003
    based on 42 ratings

    10th in the series "Conversations With Jesus." As Jesus predicts Peter’s denials, the contrasts point out what’s really important.

    In my office I have a painting of a nightime scene (I showed a photo of the actual painting). What is striking about this painting is the contrast in values. It is the contrast that draws your attention to what’s important in the scene. Proposition: In today’s conversation with Jesus there are more

  • It's Not Fair!

    Contributed by Ken Durham on Jul 22, 2005
    based on 30 ratings

    Can we hear ourselves saying “It’s not fair!” And you are probably right! It isn’t. Ask Jesus – He knows.

    INTRODUCTION Do you agree we live in an unfair world? It’s strange how quickly children are aware that life is not fair. Just listen into what children have to say and it’s not long before the words “It’s not fair!” can be heard. Someone has more sweets or a bigger present than another, having more

  • Could We Be Convicted Of Being Christian

    Contributed by Mark Ripper on Oct 21, 2000
    based on 48 ratings

    Could we be convicted of being a Christians by our daily words and actions.

    There are two passages I would ask you to consider from today’s Gospel. The first: “If anyone openly declares himself for me in the presence of human beings, the Son of Man will declare himself for him in the presence of God’s angels.” We can and do make definitive statements or declarations for more

  • He Came In A Box Of Cowfeed

    Contributed by Martin Kim on Dec 28, 2004
    based on 14 ratings

    Christmas is all about Jesus, who is God’s gift to us, and for this reason it is special.

    He Came In A Box of Cowfeed I wonder what Christmas means to a mother who has lost her husband, who must take care of 3 or 4 children, working every day, never quite getting everything done, never making ends meet? What does Christmas mean to her? I wonder what Christmas means to the little more
