  • Pride & Humility Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Dec 12, 2012

    The proud are caught up in illusions about themselves. Humility helps us submit to God’s definition of reality rather than ours.

    We’re starting a new series on the Seven Deadly Sins and their corresponding Heavenly Virtues. With every negative command in Scripture there’s a related positive duty; for every “Thou shall not” there is a “Thou shall”. Sin is our ruin, virtue our more

  • A Tale Of Two Prayers

    Contributed by Rev Ken Shedenhelm on Apr 16, 2013

    Knowing ourselves to be a sinner opens the door to salvation, whereas self-righteousness separates us from our God and our neighbor.

    "A TALE OF TWO PRAYERS" It was just another day, like all the days that came before, and two men entered the temple to pray, as men had done for centuries. One of the men was a Pharisee. He was a man, to use Mark Twain's phrase, "who was good in the worst sense of the word." The other man was more

  • Too Full Of Yourself? Or Weighed Down By Shame?

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Feb 21, 2013

    A short talk given at a baptism service. If we’re too full of ourselves then God desires humility. If we’re weighed down by sin, by shame, by guilt, and if we can pray, "God have mercy on me a sinner", God will restore us and lift us up.

    Jesus told lots of challenging stories; and in the Church we tend to calls his stories parables. But why did Jesus use stories, parables, to communicate truth to his 1st century audience? Well, he used parables to paint a picture with a punchy, poignant, pertinent point. His pithy parables packed a more

  • A Humble Walk Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on May 23, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    The journey of faith is not necessarily a walk of holiness, but rather a walk of humility.

    Luke 18:9-14 “A Humble Walk” INTRODUCTION Christians have a saying among ourselves, “Please be patient, God isn’t through with me, yet.” This saying is talking about the Holy Spirit’s ongoing process of shaping us into the image of God, or as more

  • Always Pray (Part 1) Series

    based on 1 rating

    Always talk to God with everything that you do!

    We continue our worship of God through the Gospel of Luke; the Good News of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Please open your Bibles to Luke Chapter 18….. We noted several weeks back from Chapter 14 of Luke that God Jesus Christ looks for not just followers but true disciples. And so, more

  • Why Do You Come To Church? Series

    Contributed by Pat Damiani on Aug 21, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    Eighth in this series. The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector reveals that I either come to church to impress God or to be impressed by God.

    Note: Since this message was presented in the form of a table that summarized the two reasons for coming to church some formatting may not look right. Let me begin with a question this morning. I don’t want to embarrass anyone, so I’m not going to ask you for a show of hands or ask more

  • So, You Think You're Not A Pharisee?

    Contributed by Dan Funk on Aug 28, 2014

    Christ directed the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Praying in the Temple to those who trusted in their own righteousness. We are more prone to trust in our own righteousness than we might think. This self-trust can keep us from being merciful.

    Over the years, we have all heard preachers address the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in the Temple. “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast more

  • That Sinner!

    Contributed by Andrew Moffatt on May 22, 2014

    A sermonette (I will use this at rest home services) about a bloke who had it so right with God it really make things quite messy in his relationships with his fellow man. Hey I'm just pleased I'm not like him. ;)

    Jesus had a subtle and sometimes not so subtle way of getting through to people. I like how he delivers a message to a group of people who thought they had it bang on right with God, to a group of people who were confident that they had it right with God. Jesus tells them a story that actually cuts more

  • The Sinner's Prayer Or The Prayer Of The (Self) Righteous? Luke 18:9-14 Series

    Contributed by Ken Henson on Mar 1, 2014

    It is in our weakness God's strength shines through. Only in humility we see our prayers answered.

    The Prayer of the Sinner or the Prayer of the (self)-Righteous Video: I’m Perfect ( A logician saves the life of a space alien. The alien is very grateful and, since she has knowledge of the whole universe, offers the following reward: she offers to answer any question more

  • A Snoopy Kind Of Thanksgiving

    Contributed by James Lee on Nov 22, 2013
    based on 3 ratings

    Whenever our children are offered a treat from a friend or an adult helps them out, parents normally will ask, “Now, what do you say?” Thanks David Washburn for such a great message. I hope this adaptation will be used by God.

    Whenever our children are offered a treat from a friend or an adult helps them out, parents normally will ask, “Now, what do you say?” We want our children to be respectful and use good manners, which is why we teach them to say “Thank you,” but I wonder, as we work to more

  • Prayer Matters (Selected Scriptures)

    Contributed by Stanton Winder on Feb 7, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    The key to healthy prayer is more than a technique; it is a healthy attitude. Let's look at six attitudes that lead to a satisfying and effective prayer life.

    Prayer Attitudes J. C. Ryle once wrote, "If I know anything of a Christian's heart, you are often sick of your own prayers." You go to pray but you can't think of what to say. Or you tell God he's awesome, and a second later you recall that the Honda needs an oil change. You promise God that more
