    based on 3 ratings

    The sermon introduction discusses the significance of the cross as a symbol of Easter, highlighting its original use as a tool of execution and torture, and its transformation into a symbol of special meaning and beauty.

    He is risen! I’m happy to see you this Resurrection Sunday! Does anyone have a new cross necklace? I’ve always thought that if you don’t like giving chocolate and bunnies, a cross could make a great gift for Easter morning. Whether you received it today or have worn it for years, how many of you more

  • A Rebuke Turned Back Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 21, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus turns from silence about His achievements to open speaking about His death. He will not follow the ambition path, the pleasure path, or the easy spirituality path.

    You can admire Jesus, you can think well of Jesus, you can even love Jesus. But you cannot domesticate Him, you cannot tame Him, you cannot make Him sweet and nice and pretty. He is who He is and He says what He says, and sometimes it’s hard to take. In my experience, just about everybody out more

  • How Do I Take Up My Cross?

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Mar 27, 2009
    based on 14 ratings

    This sermon looks at both what it means, and also what it does not mean, for us to take up our cross for Jesus.

    Jesus said to his disciples and to the crowd following him, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (8:34). It’s hard for us to hear those words in the same way that those following Jesus heard it. The context is that Peter has just recognised that more

  • Who Is Leading?

    Contributed by W. Leon Morrow on Mar 6, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    This sermon is designed to guide the members of the congregation to deny oneself, to take up ones cross, and to follow Jesus.

    There are tremendous lessons in our Holy Scripture. There are lessons not only in the words, or the content, but that there are lessons for us even in the construction of the writing—there are lessons in the style as well as in the words themselves. For example, in Mark the disciples had been more

  • Who Am I?

    Contributed by Bill Butsko on Sep 9, 2009
    based on 5 ratings

    This message indicates that we can truly know Jesus only by our personal relationship with Him.

    Test: “Who do men say that I am?” (Mark 8:27). If someone were to ask you, “Who is this One called Jesus?” What would you say? How would you describe Jesus? What would you say that would convince one that you truly know Him? There are times when we are questioned about something and we do not more
