  • #3- Larger Than Life Series

    Contributed by David Mains on Sep 10, 2003
    based on 32 ratings
     | 1,626 views

    Third in a series based on the movie "John" released in 2003. Certain characteristics mark all true heroes. Jesus fits all of those descriptions, and more.

    If you like the book, you’ll love the movie. Or is it the other way around? If you liked the movie, you’ll love the book. The truth is that I loved the book (or books) when I read them for the first time in the 1970s. And I loved the movies (two so far) when they came out. Now I’m looking ...read more

    Ask God to expand your ministry, influence and witness.

    1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested. Are you living larger than life ...read more

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Dec 1, 2015
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,632 views

    The birth narrative is an amazing account, filled with characters who are almost larger than life. It is easy for them to overshadow the One person who never says a word. The One coming from Heaven to dwell among us.

    First Sunday of Advent - Read - Luke 1:1-4 & 26-38 This may seem like a crazy question but how many of you remember Elvis? Before concerts they would announce to the crowd who was already there that, “Elvis has entered the building.” And the cheers would erupt! Elvis had not yet ...read more

  • The Lion, The Lamb And The Throne Room Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Sep 19, 2016
    based on 11 ratings
     | 13,230 views

    Almost everyone has a picture in their minds of what Jesus looks like... but almost no one visualizes Him the way He's shown in Revelation 5. Why does God paint us a portrait of a wounded lamb with 7 horns and 7 eyes?

    A preacher was showing a child a painting of Jesus. Trying to explain that we didn’t really know what Jesus looked like he said: "It's not really Jesus. It’s just an artist's conception of him." The child looked long and hard at the picture and said; "Well, it sure looks like ...read more

    based on 94 ratings
     | 22,358 views

    In contrast to what we would do, God didn’t send a superhero to save the world, he sent His Son, the humble, gentle, loving Christ.

    A Strange Way to Save the World Scripture: I Corinthians 1:27-31 Theme: God’s ways are not our ways. He chose to save the world in a way that would bring glory to himself and not to us. Seed: Song “A Strange Way to Save the World” Purpose: To help people understand that God’s view ...read more

    Know your enemy,and then know your plan of attack, you’re God’s warrior.

    My Foes Identification: The final opponent that is mentioned in the 27th Psalms is my foes. The word foe means hateful, hostile, and an adversary. To truly understand what a foe represents, we need to look at the story of David and Goliath. David’s final individual battle as a shepherd ...read more

  • A Well-Worn Path

    Contributed by Lyndon Marcotte on Jun 16, 2011
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,520 views

    Faith is a journey, but it is not one we ever take alone. We can be draw strength and encouragement from those who have paved the way ahead of us.

    Hebrews 11:29-12:2 – “A Well-Worn Path” I learned the stories of the Bible through flannel board narrative in Sunday School as a child. While not as high tech as a 3D Moses crossing the Red Sea on Blue Ray, it stretched my imagination to make room for these people and their ...read more

    Life can be simple

    Old MacDonald Had A Farm 1. Old MacDonald - diversity, simpler times, loose chickens, barn cats, a slower pace. Dad talking about rain, farmer plant 100 acres/day. 2. City - cutthroat, won’t help each other, don’t want to get involved. Kill you for $10. Frantic pace, higher stress level. ...read more

     | 2,577 views

    Have you heard that saying, " there’s gold in them there pews." Well, every potential leader in your church needs these words of warning.

Text: Matthew 15: 1-3, 8-14 1 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2 “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.”3 He answered and said to them, “Why ...read more

  • Giants In The Earth

    Contributed by Pastor/Revivalist Terry Sisney on Aug 12, 2005
    based on 44 ratings
     | 5,692 views

    Just as surely as there are grasshoppers in the earth there are giants. The question is which one are you?

    Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days Num 13:32 All the men we saw in it are men of great stature. What is a giant? A very large person; impressive in size or qualities, Someone who is abnormally large Any creature of exceptional size. ( Someone bigger than what is considered ...read more

    “‘Tis well.” – George Washington. “Stonewall” Jackson said, “Order A. P. Hill to prepare for action! Pass the infantry to the front rapidly! Tell Major Hawks … Let us cross over the river and sit under the shade of the trees.” “Hold the cross high so I may see it through the flames!” cried ...read more

  • Gatekeeper, Gateopener

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 19, 2000
    based on 77 ratings
     | 4,736 views

    The pastor has two roles that must not be reduced -- a gatekeeper to guard against useless ideas and hateful attitudes, and a gateopener to let in God's surprises.

    Do you think the Lord has a sense of humor? I do. I see a delicious little coincidence that God’s word drops in our laps today. Some of us remember a 70’s TV program, the Mary Tyler Moore show. If you remember that program, you will recall that sweet, nice, loveable Mary lived in an apartment ...read more

  • The Realities Of Hell

     | 1,849 views

    Hell is a real place, with real punishment, for real people.

    We live in a time when so many things about our society have succumb to the forces of capitalism and have become commercialized.

    Make your life really count. Find a cause greater than life itself and more important than yourself. That cause is found in Christ.

    Living For a Cause By Pastor Jim May Someone once asked me if I knew all of the answers to life’s many questions? In a joking manner I answered, “Sure I know the answers. The problem I have is matching the right answer to the right question.” But as I think about it, I don’t know all the ...read more

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Dec 11, 2017
     | 1,621 views

    This Advent sermon looks at John the Baptist: The Man, The Mission, & The Message. God unexpectedly worked through John. He now chooses to work through us as witnesses. (Based loosely on "The Word Became Flesh" Advent series from Concordia Seminary, STL.)

    Forensic scientists in England analyzed the venerated remains from a certain grave, a few years ago. The corpse of the individual being observed was male. He was no more than five feet tall, and he had a broken nose. He lived in the 4th Century AD. And, despite being dug up in Italy, he was ...read more
