    Contributed by Michael Hollinger on Aug 5, 2006
    based on 10 ratings

  • Growing Shallow Roots Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Sep 21, 2006

    How attached are you to this world and how much do you worry about being provided for here? How attached are you to heaven? What happens when God doesn’t answer your prayers?

    Moving is an all-encompassing experience. It’s been some years since I’ve had to move my family, but I remember it well.

  • Prophets And Losses

    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Sep 18, 2007
    based on 8 ratings

    False prophets are not just an Old Testament problem. We have them in full force today, in all denominations, telling us that God is “doing a new thing,” misinterpreting Isaiah 43:19 to justify sin.

    Other Scriptures used: Jeremiah 23:23-29 Psalm 82 Hebrews 12:1-14 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) False prophets are not more

  • The Blessings Of Hardships

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Aug 26, 2019

    Jesus said he came to, "send fire on the earth." This sermon takes a unique approach on this idea and uses the fire metaphor as a purging of the things inside us that hinder us from becoming who we can be through God.

    The Blessing of Hardships Since this Gospel reading is intense, I thought I’d begin by admitting something kind of funny about it. When I read it this week, I pictured Jesus at a Charlie Daniels concert singing, “Fire on the mountain run boys run.” It also made me wonder, “… how am I supposed more
