    Contributed by PRO Premium on Oct 9, 2023
    based on 3 ratings

    This sermon explores the idea that Jesus chose ordinary people to follow him, emphasizing that anyone willing can join Jesus in his work, as illustrated through the biblical stories of fishermen.

    Welcome back to week 2 of our Hooked series. If you weren’t with us last week it’s worth noting that this IS NOT a series about pirates - but IT IS a series about fishing, fisherman, nets, and the open sea… Which we talked a lot about in week 1 where we learned; “The kingdom of heaven is like a net more

    Contributed by Paul Kallan on Jan 24, 2003
    based on 24 ratings

    When I have experienced the joy of God’s message, I offer it also to others who need it. But not with tricks or wrong methods, but inviting, attracting, luring and offering, just as God does it.

    One evening, a social worker received a telephone call, saying that an old man had a fall on the way, as he went for a walk, and immediately needed help. The social worker called up his colleage, who was a voluntary helper, and asked him to come along. The colleage replied, “Wait a moment. I must more

  • A Call To Obey

    Contributed by Karl Kruse on Jan 24, 2003
    based on 55 ratings

    This sermon speaks especially to congregations and communities experiencing stress, and a lack of unity; reinforcing the call to obediently seek and follow the will of God.

    January 26, 2003 "A Call To Obey" Jonah 3:1-5, 10; Mark 1:14-20 “The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, saying, ‘Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.’” Now, if the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, it only makes sense to more

  • Two Fish Tales

    Contributed by Dawn Marie Turner on Jan 24, 2003
    based on 54 ratings

    Are we disobedient to God or do we follow him without question?

    As you can tell, our scripture readings today have a theme. You may have to think a bit, but it does help if you read the sermon title and also were listening during the children’s moments. Both our stories relate to fish: one to a big fish story and one to fishermen at their nets. There has more

  • Does Jesus Need Our Help

    based on 39 ratings

    Jesus needs our help! Just as the disciples were needed to begin Jesus’ ministry, we are needed to continue in the kingdom-building process.

    “Does Jesus Need Our Help” ~ Mark 1:14-20 January 26, 2003 Purpose: Jesus needs our help! Introduction – Why did Jesus call these disciples in the first place? Wasn’t he the Son of God? Why did he need these simple fishermen? And if he needed them, why didn’t he choose someone else….someone more

    Contributed by Nicholas Connolly on Jan 26, 2003
    based on 4 ratings

    The obedience of Jonah, Peter, James and John is a model for our own obedience to the Lord

    “Just do it! Just do it”! So goes the Nike sneaker company. Speaking of sneakers and being sneaky, that company wants one thing: “Just do it” -buy their shoes. They take a phrase that usually goes with giving into temptation. When you are on a diet and faced with a lovely array of deserts such more

  • Hope For The Hopeless

    Contributed by W Pittendreigh on Jan 28, 2003
    based on 66 ratings

    Jesus said he would make us fishers of men, yet we are like Jonah who was called to preach to the people of Ninevah -- we run away as fast as we can!

    Jonah 3:1-10 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: "Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you." Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very important city-- a visit required three days. On the first day, Jonah more

  • Gone Fishin'

    Contributed by John Nadasi on Jan 28, 2003
    based on 49 ratings

    This is a fun sermon to preach! God’s call extends from the ordinary (apostles) to the extraordinary (Jonah). Many times God calls us through the subtlety of invitation as in this text. We are invited to go and do likewise.

    Mark 1: 14-20 January 26, 2000 Paonia United Methodist Church How many of you watch the news? Have you seen the case being brought against McDonalds That eating their food makes you fat? Duh! Of course it does… that’s what makes it taste good. Thankfully, that case was dismissed this more

  • Come Follow Me Series

    based on 9 ratings

    What Jesus said changed world history. Twelve disciples who answered the call, "Follow Me" changed the course of human history.

    Imagine or picture with me for a moment a scene in a park, it could be any picnic ground in Perth. It’s a sunny day and there is a family having a great time together, it is an extended family. There is two or three kids trying to catch padpoles, maybe skylarking on the monkey bars. Soon they more

    Contributed by James May on Jun 25, 2005
    based on 26 ratings

    Jesus has called us to be fishers of men. I want to hear some fish stories of the one that didn’t get away.

    Fish Stories By Pastor Jim May Mark 1:16-20, "Now as he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

  • Jesus Calls "Follow Me!"

    Contributed by Bramwell Hayes on Aug 19, 2005
    based on 64 ratings

    Jesus calls us to follow him, just like he called Peter, Andrew, James and John. What their call means about our call.

    Intro I have always had strong images of the calling by Jesus of Peter and Andrew, James and John. Perhaps it is through having been brought up in a town with a strong fishing history. Even though the heyday of the fish industry in St Ives was already well past when I was a child, there were many more

    based on 46 ratings

    A sermon for Remembrance Sunday - the UK’s version of Veteran’s Day, always on the second Sunday in November.

    It’s very daunting for me to stand in a pulpit on this day of all days. The closest I’ve come to living through a war is seeing it on the television, and the closest I’ve come to active service was the school cadet force. Yet, today is still desperately important. This year we remember more
