  • Jesus And Giving Series

    Contributed by K. Edward Skidmore on Nov 11, 2020

    Today we will turn to examine what Jesus had to say about giving. And we will ask what giving looked like to Jesus. The passage in Luke 14:15-33 is considered one of the "Hard Sayings of Jesus". And indeed, it takes a bit of explanation to make sense of it.

    Jesus and Giving Text: Luke 14:15-33 Luke 14:25-33 (NIV) 25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my more

  • The Cost Of Discipleship Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Oct 12, 2020

    Billy Graham used to say: "Salvation is free, but discipleship will cost you everything." That is an accurate expression of the teachings of Jesus on the cost of discipleship. In this sermon, we explore what it means to pay the cost of discipleship.

    A. I like the old classic joke about the chicken and the pig who were talking about going into business. 1. The chicken says: “Hey Pig, we should open a restaurant.” The pig replies: “I’m not sure, what would we call it?” 2. The chicken answers: “What if we called it ‘Ham and Eggs’?” The pig more

  • Are We Good Stewards

    Contributed by Dr. Ronald Shultz on Sep 28, 2020

    Are you wasting God's resources and gifts propping up a dying church?

    1 Cor 4:1  Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.  2  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.  1 Peter 4:10  As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to more

  • Hyperbole

    Contributed by Roy Fowler on Aug 31, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus gets the people's attention by exaggerating his statements.

    Personal Illustration: I had to have a tooth removed last Thursday. It took me FOREVER to get an appointment. Once I got there and got back in the room where they were going to extract my tooth I felt like I was in an operating room not a dentist office. I remember back in the ‘80’s when I got more

  • Of Utmost Concern Sermon Vi: Following Jesus To The Nth Degree Series

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Aug 12, 2020

    In times like these, with so much at stake in our world of blame and shame, Christians are called on to follow Jesus in all their ways all their days to a degree that puts no restriction on a mature believer's love for Christ.

    JESUS LEFT NO DOUBT ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO FOLLOW HIM TO THE NTH DEGREE When we first “enrolled in His school” and became Disciples of Christ, we sang that little chorus, “If you want joy, real joy, wonderful joy, let Jesus come into your heart.” Then we learned the more

  • Cross-Examination (Part One)

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Jul 6, 2020

    A few weeks ago I did a play on words sermon titled Cross-Contamination. Today, I'm doing the same thing with the term, cross-examination. I'm using the term from the perspective of examining things through a spiritual lens. It's time for cross-examination.

    CROSS-EXAMINATION (part one) A few weeks ago I did a play on words sermon titled Cross-Contamination. Today, I'll be doing the same thing with the term, cross-examination. We know this term from a trial. The first attorney asks a witness questions and then the other one is allowed to ask more

  • We Are His Disciples Series

    Contributed by Doug Fannon on Jun 15, 2020

    Our desire should be to be like Christ, to follow in His footsteps, to see the world as He sees the world, to conform to His likeness. We have a word for it, we call it being a disciple. We are called to be His disciples.

    Who are we in Christ? We have been looking at this pretty much since Easter. We considered that “in Christ” we are a new creation. All the old has passed away and before God, all has become new! Being in Christ, we represent Him to the world, we have become His ambassadors. We have the more

  • Reflection A.5 / Coronavirus - First Response / We Ask Why. But We’re Cautious In Forming An Opinion

    Contributed by Simon Bartlett on May 9, 2020

    Looking at coronavirus - is there a bigger picture? We need to look, but we also need to be cautious in interpreting what we 'see'.

    There are many ways to ‘see’ things, not with our physical eyes, but with the eyes of understanding. In the previous 'Reflection' I reflected on Jesus’ sensitivity to different people he met: a leper, someone who was deaf, someone who was blind. Jesus ‘saw’ each person as an individual more

  • ¿lo Decimos Como Realmente Es?

  • Cross And The Believer: Carrying The Cross : Good Friday

    Contributed by Dr. Madana Kumar, Phd on Apr 19, 2020

    Cross is the most "flaunted" symbol in the world today. But what does it mean to you as a believer?

  • The Message Of The Gospel Of Christ, And The Cost Of Preaching It

    Contributed by Chris Swanson on Mar 13, 2020

    Where is that message today? This is a two-fold message. First, the call to preach the Gospel. Second, the cost of preaching the Gospel.

    Since Jesus started His earthly ministry, He has called various people to follow Him, and then told them to go out into all the world and preach the Gospel (Mark 16:15 – and He said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature). Many have come and undoubtedly many more

  • Committed Disciple Series

    Contributed by Lonnie Erwin on Mar 7, 2020

    To say you’re a “Christian” carries the idea that you’re a disciple but does it? Many in the Christian world today the understandings of what it means to be a Christian for many is to include a lot of don’t such as movies you can’t see, places you can’t go, things you can’t read.

    For the last several weeks we have spent time considering that we as followers of Jesus we are to be His disciples. This term “disciple” carries the meaning of being a student or pupil of Jesus. Today we identify with Jesus using the term “Christian” which implies an association or follower of more

  • Commitment

    Contributed by Grant Adams on Mar 5, 2020

    I believe the greatest need we have in Christianity today is: Total Commitment of our Lives to the Lord

    According to Romans 12:1; Total commitment is something we can and must do. It is an act of our will. The problem is that very little is said about total commitment. It is seen in our everyday life. • If you don’t like your job…. quit • If you don’t feel like working…. call in sick • If your more

  • Three Choices That Can Change Your Life

    Contributed by Sunitha Justin on Feb 9, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    ‘Choice’ is something that begins with God. God chose to keep the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the center of garden, so there was no chance of Adam & Eve missing it. And God passed on this gift of choice to mankind. The choices that we make in our everyday life determine our future.

    The choices that we make are very important. It determines our victory and our future. One wrong choice can ruin your life. And a right choice can bless you abundantly. What’s the first choice mentioned in the Bible? [allow audience to guess] Eve choosing to eat the forbidden fruit! No. CHOICE more
