    The Almost Followers Of Jesus I watched a video this past week of a table saw that would not cut through flesh. Have any of you worked with table saws? If you have you know how dangerous they can be. They can remove a misplaced finger in less than a second. But the video showed a recent more

    FOLLOWERS OR FANS? (LUKE 9:57-62) The backdrop to this passage is that the Samaritans did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Jun 26, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    A Casual Disciple of Christ? Jesus teaches us that such a disciple is no disciple.

    What do you call these word combinations? “A little pregnant; airline food; plastic silverware; unbiased opinion; fresh dried fruit.” They’re all oxy…morons—expressions that in their superficial, or literal meanings are self-contradictory or absurd. Can you be a more

    From the Kingdom of God series. This message looks that the three men Jesus invites to follow and their excuses.

    The Kingdom of God “Not So Wise Men” Luke 9:57-62 Many people are surprised when they read this particular section of Scripture and how Jesus was actually discouraging people from following Him. It also comes as a surprise to think that Jesus wasn’t as seeker friendly as many make Him out to more

    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus specifically targets, in this passage, the excuses we might use to give half-effort when being His disciple.

    “Half-Way Discipl…” LUKE 9:57-62 INTRODUCTION… THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT DO HALF-WAY (P) There are somethings in life that we should never do half-way. Most things in life we should give our best effort, persevere, and see to completion. Giving half-effort while swimming means that you drown more

  • Reluctant Recruits

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Jan 1, 2018

    Jesus did not present a rosy, unrealistic picture of the Christian life. In Luke 9 we encounter 3 potential recruits. Jesus appraises their resolve, exposes their excuses, and urges them to consider the cost of discipleship

    It’s Career Day at the high school and a small crowd is gathered at the Army’s booth. A Recruiter tells the students about field duty in the winter, eating MRE’s, family separations, grueling physical exercise, frequent moves, and the likelihood of war…and pretty soon he’s standing alone. The more

  • The Comfortable Cross--We Don't Want The Real Thing

    Contributed by Rick Gillespie- Mobley on Feb 14, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    We don't mind going to the cross as long as we can take a number of comfortable and convenient things along with us. Jesus does not call us to comfort. He calls us to die.

    Not A Fan Part 4: The Comfortable Cross January 28, 2018 1 King 12:25-33 Luke 9:51-62 Some of the ideas in this sermon came from Kyle Idleman’s series Fan or Follower which we did at our church. We are now in week 4 of our Not a Fan series. We have looked at Fan or Follower, more

  • Following Jesus

    Contributed by Sam Mccormick on Sep 28, 2017
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus said, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." He also said, "Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple." So following him is vitally important. How is it done?

    Note: I have prepared some simple slides the I used in delivering this sermon. If anyone is interested in them, send me an Email at with the words "Following Jesus slides" in the subject, and I'll send the PowerPoint file directly by Email. FOLLOWING JESUS WHAT DOES IT more

  • Going Into Battle

    Contributed by Mark Engler on Sep 28, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    But the church today isn’t living in power, it isn’t going into to battle and we have a hard time obeying Jesus. Even Christians dislike each other and sometimes even hate each other. Even Christians would rather do worldly things rather than Godly thin

    Going Into Battle ME Not too long ago, when HBO had a free weekend I watched a war movie called Hacksaw Ridge. The movie is about Desmond Doss. Desmond wanted to help with the war, but he would not kill anyone, he wanted to be a medic and help the wounded. The movie is based on a true story. more

  • Excuses

    Contributed by Gaither Bailey on Jun 26, 2019

    No excuse is good enough to keep us from following Jesus.

    Excuses Luke 9: 57 - 62 Intro: I heard of a pastor who also preached on this passage. He centered his thoughts and comments on the fact that those who would follow Jesus claimed, “I will follow, but . . .” At the conclusion of his message, the pastor said, “I encourage all who identify with more
