  • The Enjoyment Of God Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 22 views

    The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. This is also the chief end of Christmas. The way to have a merry Christmas is to do what all the characters did on that first Christmas-they enjoyed God and they praised Him..

    One of the biggest attractions in all of history was the smallest man alive-General Tom Thumb. He was only 25 inches tall and weighed only 15 pounds.

  • The Approachable God Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 26 views

    To find the Child-that was the goal. Anything that takes us off the path that leads to Christ is not part of God's plan. The job of the angels and the star was finished when the shepherds and the wise men bowed before the Christ-child.

    Lucy is expounding on the meaning of Christmas and she says, "this is the time of the year that we show kindness and good will, when we accept others and welcome them into our home." Charlie Brown says, "why can't we be kind and accepting all through the year and not just at ...read more

  • Christmas Stuff Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 4 views

    Jesus created all of the stuff of this material universe, and in His Incarnation He became personally involved with the animal, mineral, and vegetable kingdom. His goal is to redeem all of His creation from the effects of the fall, so that even stuff is a part of the plan of salvation.

    Back in October of 1948, a young pastor and his wife took on the challenge of repairing and restoring an old church. Their goal was to have it done by Christmas Eve.

  • The Sights Of Christmas Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 7 views

    The challenge for all of us is to go into this Christmas season determined to see in the sights of Christmas that which makes us praise God and want to be part of His light in this dark world. Let your prayer be, open my eyes Lord, I want to see Jesus.

    Hal Bowser said, "the most exciting gift I've ever received was the microscope my parents gave me for Christmas when I was eleven." The first thing he did on that Christmas day was to go out in the back yard and get some water from a rain puddle. He put a drop under his microscope ...read more

  • Christmas Babies Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 16 views

    Jesus is the only person in history who chose to be a baby. This tells us just how important the baby centeredness of Christmas is to Him. The message of Christmas is not that the angels came; that the shepherds came, or that the wise men came, but that the baby came.

    Elenor Cicok had a three year old daughter who developed an emotional block and ceased to talk. She never said a word, not even mama when she wanted her mother. It was a terrible ordeal as she went month after month in silence. Her mother taught her about God and prayer, and read to her about ...read more

  • Christmas Is Contagious Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 23 views

    The fastest way to get infected with the spirit of Christmas is to start praising God for what He has done for you through His Son. This sort of praise is very contagious. If you let it start coming out of your mouth, before you know it, it has infected your heart.

    Celestine Sibley tells of her father saying to her mother one grayish December morning, "the lumber business is going badly. It looks like a poor Christmas this year." She cried out, "A poor Christmas-shame on you! There is no such thing as a poor Christmas! Times can be hard and ...read more

  • The Season For Seeing Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 17 views

    God made the message of Christmas a visual message to appeal to the eyes. Christmas from day one has always been a season for seeing. By His coming into the world Jesus changed how men see reality. He changed how man sees God and history, and how he sees the role of man and the goal of God.

    Mr. and Mrs. Nudelman were on a 50th wedding anniversary trip to Paris where they visited the Louvre. As they slowly walked past the masterpieces of the ages, Mrs. Nudelman stopped in front of a huge Renaissance painting called, The Child In The Manger. As she stood there, Mr Nudelman asked her ...read more

  • The Babe And The Bell Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 10 views

    It is no wonder that bells have become a symbol of Christmas, for God chose the bell to be a symbol of joy and victory in His presence. There are numerous types of bells, but all of them have some positive value, and thus, have something in common with the Babe of Bethlehem.

    Bells are one of the common symbols of Christmas, because all through history, bells have been used to play the role of the angels on that first Christmas. Bells ring forth the message of joy. The bell and the babe of Bethlehem are linked in many ways. Nowhere is this more evident, than when you ...read more

  • Christmas Expectations Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 12 views

    There is no other holiday like Christmas, where expectation is so much a part of it's celebration. We look forward to Christmas, longer, and with greater anticipation, then all other holidays combined.

    Henry McCushy, of the Texas Employment Commission, said they had a hard time getting men to be department store Santa Clauses, one year. The reason was, the high percentage of children who were kicking Santa in the shins for not coming through the year before. They expected Santa to live up to ...read more

  • The Wonder Of Christmas Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 8 views

    Just scratching the surface of a match can cause it to burst into flame and though that is all we can do with Luke's record, scratch the surface, it is hoped that this will kindle a flame of wonder in our hearts for Christmas.

    Typical of last minute Christmas shoppers, a mother was running furiously from store to store. Suddenly she became aware that the pudgy little hand of her three year old son was no longer clutched in hers. In a panic she retraced her steps and found him standing with his little nose pressed ...read more

  • A Savior Is Born Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 6 views

    Christmas is still the good news that unto you is born a Savior. It is still a message of hope, joy, and peace that causes men to glorify and praise God.

  • Christmas Silence And Song Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021
     | 6 views

    Christmas was both a night of silence and a night of song. If you read through the Christmas hymns in a hymnal you will see these two themes stand out often, some with a focus on the silence and others with a focus on the song.

  • Shepherds In The Night

    Contributed by Justin Steckbauer on Apr 2, 2021
     | 6 views

    Merry Christmas! I love Christmas. I love this time of year. I don’t necessarily love the snow, though it is beautiful. It’s beautiful for a while at least! God bless you today. Jesus Christ is Lord today, tomorrow and everyday. I need Him now.

    Merry Christmas! I love Christmas. I love this time of year. I don’t necessarily love the snow, though it is beautiful. It’s beautiful for a while at least! God bless you today.

    Contributed by Keith Broyles on Mar 21, 2021
     | 79 views

    This sermon is a first-person narrative from the perspective of the innkeeper. We have all too often made the innkeeper into a bad guy. What if he did everything for the family that he could do?

    Well, it would seem I was between a rock and a hard place. I was in a situation, where there were no easy answers. I looked hard for the simple answers because, you know, they say the simplest is always the best. But, it wasn’t a simple lesson I faced. Later in his life Jesus faced several of those ...read more

  • How Do You Answer Jesus?

    Contributed by Reuben Bredenhof on Feb 4, 2021
     | 323 views

    What is our reaction to the Saviour? What do we do with the message of Jesus Christ? That’s a good question for us, who hear and read often about the coming of Jesus in the flesh and about his dying on the cross. So what do we do now? How do treat the message of the gospel?

    In this world there are scientists of all kinds. So many people, researching so many areas of knowledge. And among these many scientists, there are those who study human behaviour.
