  • The Stone, The Stink, And The Glory Of God

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Sep 16, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    Remembrance Sunday, 1989: For us to see the glory of God in the face of death means that we have to move some obstacles and we have to live into the bitterness of what might have been; but then the great "Come Forth" can be heard.

    At Easter it was not hard to think and to sing of the glory of God, was it? Not hard at all to imagine that God’s in His heaven, all’s right with the world. Triumphant music played, pronouncements came forth about victory and power and honor to our God. It was not hard at Easter to dwell on the more

  • The Ultimate Question

    based on 1 rating

    The difference it makes in our lives to say that we truly believe Jesus is the resurrection and the life.

    This Scripture passage from the gospel of John has been my most favorite Bible passage since I was in the seventh grade. I have chosen to share it with you this morning and to reflect on it with you because I love this passage so much, and I thought by sharing it with you that you might learn a bit more

  • Reassuring Words For Jesus Friends

    Contributed by Tim Patrick on Jul 21, 2009
    based on 11 ratings

    This funeral sermon was prepared for the funeral of a four month old but would be good for any funeral.

    At a time of death we need reassuring words. Those words are important when they are given but especially when they come from a friend. The words of a friend seem to carry greater weight. They are warm. They are to be trusted. In John 11 we find Jesus sharing a challenging experience with some of more

    Truley believe in the Deity of our Christ. 1) an answer to struggling with why God allows certain things 2) a rebuke to the “I believe” syndrome 3) A measuring rod of faith 4) Moving from faith to living the life 5) You will change for the better

    Have you ever lost faith in something? Your car for instance. You have always been goofy enough to drive a ford and now every ford you buy is junk. (You should have listened to us Chevy people). Slowly you lose faith in that brand because it has consistently proven to be cheap and useless. This more

  • Rest For Today And Forever

    Contributed by Christopher Martin on Mar 15, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    I preached this at my grandmother’s funeral. She was 88 and althogh her health had been declining, her death was very sudden. Her last request of me was to officiate at her funeral, which I did and was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my ministry.

    (Reading of the obituary) I think it’s pretty safe to say that this day came as a great shock to almost every one of us in this room here today. While we knew that Grandma wasn’t in the best of health, and had some past health issues a little over 4 years ago, none of us thought that we’d be more

  • Three Burials Of Amad Lahem Lazarus

    Contributed by Brian Harvison on Nov 12, 2008

    This is a story based on the death and reviving of Lazarus using selected scriptures

    Three Burials of Amad Lahem Lazarus Selected Scriptures This morning I want to tell you a story. While this story is partially based on actual events, some of it is what we call “poetic license”. This means I can say this is based on a true story and then make almost the whole thing up. more

  • Do We Stink? (Story Of Lazarus)

    Contributed by Steven Buhr on Jan 22, 2010
    based on 5 ratings

    Christians can stink it up just like anyone else. And being around a Christian who is full of pride, anger, and self-righteousness has a pretty bad stink to it. But there is a way to get rid of that smell. There’s a way out of the tomb.

    August 10, 2008 – Do We Stink? The story of Lazarus. (Jesus is our Life) Smell, just one of our five senses; but a very powerful one. Smells can remind us of many things. Think of these smells; fresh baked bread, barbecued beef, apple pie, cut flowers, cut grass, ocean breezes, just more

    Jesus’ compassion.

    John 11:1-44 “BFF” by: Rev. Ken Sauer, East Ridge UMC, Chattanooga, TN Text messaging and emails have brought with them a whole new language. For example, when two persons are exceptionally close, perhaps they are best friends, one will write to the other, “You are my BFF.” Now what more
