  • Risk-Taker (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Oct 7, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    We often meet with crosses in the way of duty; and though we must not pull them upon our own heads, yet, when they are laid for us, we must take them up, and carry them after Christ. We must never be ashamed of Christ and his gospel.

    Opening illustration: What have we gotten ourselves into? Many people have asked this question when they were faced with great personal risk. • A mountain climber ~ is it worth taking the risk? • A soldier in combat ~ is it worth it? John 14: 21 says, "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it more

  • "Monsters In Our World”

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Sep 7, 2021

    Spiritual warfare. The casting out of a demon demonstrates the power of Jesus, and He is the Messiah. Includes a story about how an overcoat could not save children from a snow storm, but Jesus is big enough to save us.

    In Jesus Holy Name September 12, 2021 Text: Luke 9:14-32 Text: James 2:19 Redeemer “Monsters in our World” Today’s message is not about “the way to heaven”. The text before is about our “walk with Jesus” and how we must confront evil in our world. We have arrived at chapter 9 in the more

  • The Rate Of Exchange

    Contributed by Donald Whitchard on Aug 9, 2021

    Jesus made it clear that you can gain everything the world has to offer, but it rusts, wears out, turns to dust, and you cannot take it with you after you die. If you lose your soul, however, you lose your life for eternity.

    Humanity in its natural state really does not place much value on life, preferring to love death (Proverbs 8:36) in the form of abortions, murders, manslaughter, varied stages and types of physical, emotional, and mental abuse, and a placing on some individuals and groups a stigma of more

  • Easter Message: Going All In

    Contributed by Dennis Lee on Apr 3, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    Today's Easter Message is how Jesus went all the way in His death and burial, but also came all the way out in His resurrection. And to follow His example we need go all the way in in our relationship with Him, we'll come out saved, sanctified, and glorified in heaven.

    An Easter Message “Going All In” Billy Graham once told Time magazine, “If I were an enemy of Christianity, I would aim right at the Resurrection, because that is the heart of Christianity.” (Billy Graham) (Crosswalk “A World Without Easter”) You see, Christianity is all about Jesus going all in, more

  • Ashamed Of Jesus

    Contributed by John Daniel Johnson on May 8, 2021
    based on 3 ratings

    When we refuse to speak up for Jesus we prove to the world how much He really means to us. Today's sermon teaches us how to know people show their embarrassment of Jesus and the Signs of Being Ashamed of Him.

    "Ashamed of Jesus" Scripture Reference: Matthew 10, Mark 8, Luke 9 Preached at Mount Zion Baptist Church on May 9, 2021 Delivered by John Daniel Johnson Opening— Happy Mother’s Day to all our mothers this morning. I must confess to you that I had a simple more

  • Step Three - Surrender Or Die Series

    Contributed by Robert Butler on Jan 7, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Step Three: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood Him.., is how it reads but what it means is: “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”

    I love the smells and sounds of spring: spring rain, cut grass and people rooting for or playing one of the many spring summer sports. However, I also remember the pain of one fateful night. You see, I loved to play softball. It was always a blast but I’m competitive. On this night, I tried to more

  • What Does The Bible Say About Discipleship? Series

    Contributed by Michael Monica on Jan 28, 2020

    What Does the Bible Say About Discipleship?

    JOHN 8:31-32 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 1 JOHN 2:3-6 And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know more

  • Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

    Contributed by Michael Otterstatter on Jul 4, 2010
    based on 5 ratings

    "But what about you...who do you say I am?" Peter gave the correct answer to that question from Jesus to his disiciples. Our life and our eternal destiny are dependent on our answer to that same question.

    In the fall of 1999 ABC launched a television game show that quickly became the #1 rated television program in the country. Hosted by Regis Philbin, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? hit the airwaves and soared in popularity. Airing three nights a week during primetime it seemed that Americans just more

  • Victorious Christian Life Sermon I: Identify With Christ Series

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Feb 2, 2020

    The truth of the old adage, "You can tell a lot about a person by the company he or she keeps", compels us to confess Christ not only by identifying with His Name but also HIs Teaching in word and in deed.

    THE VICTORIOUS CHRISTIAN LIFE: FIRST, IDENTIFY WITH CHRIST You no doubt have heard it said that you can tell a lot about a person by the company he or she keeps. If your experience has been like mine, you have found that axiom to be truer than not. more

  • Are You A Bystander? Series

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Mar 22, 2020

    Some people find the cross … sometimes the cross finds you. Simon of Cyrene had a divine appointment with God that day … and sometimes God makes divine appointments with us. Like Simon, these may involve tasks we would prefer not to do, but these often lead to some of life’s greatest blessings.

    His name was “Simon.” It means “God has Heard.” And today it would certainly seem that God had heard his many, many prayers. Today was the day that he and his two boys, Alexander and Rufus, would finally get to see Jerusalem, the mighty and holy city of God, with their own eyes. All of his more

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

    Cross and the Believers: A Good Friday Message Today is Good Friday, and the focus is on the cross. Traditionally we are used to listening to sermons about Jesus’s words from the Cross or the stations of the cross etc. More than any other day, Cross is on everybody’s mind today.

  • The Cost Series

    Contributed by John Dobbs on Aug 12, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    When we follow Jesus, we are stepping into a new life that leaves an old life behind. It will cost us some of our worldly ambitions, but it will give us so much more.

    Following Jesus: The Cost Luke 9:23 Introduction Following Jesus means we hear his invitation to come and see, listen to His teaching, act upon what we learn from Him. When we follow Jesus, we are stepping into a new life that leaves an old life behind. It will cost us some of our worldly more

  • Staying On Track (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Richard Tow on Sep 6, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Many Christians begin with zeal, but get sidetracked along the way. Some are distracted with career ambitions. Others let hobbies or other interests take more and more time. The most heartbreaking is when someone is sidetracked by a false doctrine. Message expounds Philippians 3:15-21.

    Intro In our study of Philippians, we find ourselves in the last seven verses of chapter 3. In the verses just prior to this text Paul introduced the metaphor of running a race like they run in the Olympics. His instruction there was that we keep our focus on the finish line; we do not look back; more

  • It Costs To Follow Jesus

    Contributed by Anitha Jabastion on Aug 1, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Let us wholeheartedly follow Jesus and not let the things of this world get in the way. We are too easily distracted by the urgent things of this life, our material desires and our physical comforts, that we fail in our commitment to our Lord.

    Luke 9:57-62 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he more

  • Deny Your Dark Side Series

    based on 4 ratings

    Salvation is free but discipleship will cost you your life.

    Trevin Wax writes, “Recent studies reveal 91 percent of Americans agree with this statement: ‘The best way to find yourself is by looking within yourself.’ In other words, if you want to discover who you are and what your purpose is, the place to look is inside your heart.” When I googled the more
