  • The Sermon On The Mount (Part 14) Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Dec 9, 2019
     | 713 views

    Today we start chapter six. Throughout chapter five we saw the phrase, "you have heard it was said". Jesus no longer starts out that way. Jesus isn't challenging contradictory teachings but contradictory practices. Today's lesson is on why we do good deeds.

    THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT (part 14) Matthew 6:1-4 Today we start chapter six. We'll notice that Jesus doesn't introduce his topics as he has up to this point. Throughout chapter five we saw the now familiar phrase, "you have heard it was said". But Jesus doesn't start out that ...read more

  • Don't Be A Show Off

     | 2,781 views

    This could be used as a stewardship sermon and hopefully would get people to realize that their is more to being a Christian than just filling a pew. Hopefully this sermon compels people to look beyond the superficial and truly look to their heart.

    (a note about the opening illustration; It is not my own but i don't know where I actually found it originally, it is tucked away with some notes I have.) There was a man who called a church and asked if he could speak to the Head Hog at the trough. The secretary said, "Who?" Then ...read more

  • Check Your Motive

    Jesus contrasts the Teachers of the Law with the poor widow. In the former, we see people more interested in themselves than in God; hypocrites, pretending to be something they were not. In the latter, we see a lady who loved God authentically and completely.

    Check Your Motive Mark 12:38-44 In March 2009 Bernie Madoff pled guilty to running the largest Ponzi scheme in history. Bernie’s last name is appropriate, because he literally “made off” with billions of dollars belonging to his investors. A Ponzi scheme is pretty simple in concept: you convince ...read more

     | 2,487 views

    A sermon in the character of an observer who was seeing the events that unfolded in Mark 12:38-44, where he see the difference between the religious rulers and the widow, and we explore not only what this means for us but what this story reveals about God.

    I will never forget that day. I was sitting near the back waiting to worship and out of the corner of my eye I could the one everyone was talking about. This is the one who was challenging some of the religious authorities, not with violence but with love and something called grace. And there ...read more

     | 1,312 views

    In the midst of church scandals, can we look beyond human sins and see God at work? We religious leaders are the object of Jesus’ greatest criticisms; will we listen?

    Have you ever thought of what difference a word of compassion, encouragement, or affirmation can make in someone else's life? This sermon calls us to recognize others' needs and to show our love for them in the appropriate love language.

    [Sermon preached on 26 August 2018, 14th Sunday after Pentecost / 3rd year, ELCF Lectionary] Somehow, widows have been on my mind this past week. Last Tuesday, I was contacted by a woman whose husband had just died. She asked me to arrange the funeral. That same day, I read the Bible readings for ...read more

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Oct 6, 2018

     | 2,455 views

    A contrast between acquisitive Scribes, and a gift given out of penury.

    FROM VICTIM TO VICTOR: THE WIDOW’S MITE Mark 12:38-44 In our previous reading, Jesus pronounced one Scribe, ‘Not far from the kingdom of God’ (Mark 12:34). Yet Jesus’ opinion of the Scribes in general was not unlike His opinion of the Pharisees (cf. Luke 11:43). ‘The Scribes and the ...read more

  • Sacrificial Giving

    Jesus doesn't say that the poor widow gave more than anyone else. Rather, he says that she gave “more than all.” But why did Jesus say that she gave more than all? I would be delighted if you could rate this sermon and give brief feedback.

    INTRODUCTION (SECURE ATTENTION) & BACKGROUND OF THE PASSAGE: PRAY before starting the sermon. ILLUSTRATION: {There is an old story about a king that was coming to visit a certain land. The people in the land were so excited that a king would grace their little village with his presence. They ...read more
