  • The Call Of The Cross Series

    Contributed by Tim Smith on Feb 9, 2016

    the cross is not just a symbol we look to or place our faith in. It’s not just what Jesus did for us. It is what Jesus invites us to. It is a way of life for those following Jesus.

    The Call to the Cross Mark 8:34-38 The Cross. What comes to mind when you hear that word? A decorative altar ornament? Something that rests on top of a church steeple? A piece of jewelry hanging around the neck? Mention the word "cross" to the people of Jesus' day and a very different image more

    Weekend Message/Devotion February 25, 2018 Reading: Mark 8:31-38 The Way of the Cross In this reading, there is very little to view as confusing. We begin by listening to the Christ’s own words (verse 31) “And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, more

  • Why A Suffering Messiah?

    Contributed by Geoffrey Foot on Mar 20, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Why did Jesus have to suffer after all He was the Messiah and Peter just couldn't understand why Jesus spoke about His forthcoming death as He did.

    WHY A SUFFERING MESSIAH? MARK 8:27-35. A lady went to buy a rosary without a cross attached. "It's for my friend," she explained. She doesn't like the cross, she thinks it's cruel." There are many today who would like to take the cross out of Christianity. In today's Gospel, Peter felt more

    based on 1 rating

    There are two groups and we have to decide which one we are going to be. There are fans and there are followers. Here’s the difference. Fans only follow when you are popular. Once you make one wrong move they turn against you.

    NOBODY BUT JESUS Fan or Follower? Mark 8:31-38 Let me ask you a very deep question this morning. Serious business. Did you know that Ben & Jerry’s has a new ice cream flavor? They put cookies and actual peanut butter cookie pieces mixed into the ice cream and then they bore a hole down the more

  • The Paradoxical Sayings Of Jesus: Lose Your Life To Save It Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Jul 30, 2018

    Perhaps Jesus' most challenging saying of all is that to save your lives we must be willing to lose it for His sake and the Gospels. We explore what this really means practically, and whether Jesus meant for it to be literally true.

    The Paradoxical Sayings of Jesus Lose Your Life to Save It Mark 8:31-39 We continue in our summer series on the paradoxical sayings of Jesus. Jesus said a number of things which violate common sense, and seem to be impossible with regard to all the realities we face in this world, and would more

  • "follow Me"

    Contributed by Dwight Davis on Mar 29, 2019

    Holiness of the believer is a Biblical topic that seems to have been almost totally obscured by the false teaching of "cheap grace." Are Christians actually supposed to be "holier than thou"?

    “Follow Me” The second paragraph of Untied States Declaration of Independence begins with these words; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the more

    based on 1 rating

    Not much is said about self-denial and sacrifice in today's church and society, but it is central to the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

    Mark 8:31-38 “A Different Drummer” INTRODUCTION Selective hearing is a curious human phenomenon. We have the ability to hear only what we want to hear. Teenagers can hear the word “food,” but they have trouble hearing, “Do your homework,” or more
