  • Mustard Seed And Yeast Series

    Contributed by Mark Eberly on Sep 21, 2009
    based on 4 ratings

    We come full circle with the parables of Jesus. As we close this series, we are reminded the God’s Kingdom work starts small and seemingly insignificant but through God’s work becomes greater than we can imagine.

    The Parables of Jesus The Mustard Seed and The Yeast Matthew 13:31-33 September 20, 2009 This week we will return to Matthew and look at two small parables that are connected together but give us two varying perspectives of the kingdom. These are the parables of the mustard seed and yeast. If more

  • The Wheat And The Weeds Series

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Aug 31, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    The Church is an imperfect organism. There are always going to be people within it who are opposed to Christ. OUr task is to teach people how to think Biblically and theologically; to continually be asking ourselves how the ideas we hear fit with God’s re

    It’s interesting that over the past few weeks and months there’s been a huge amount of interest in the economic crisis facing our world, but very little about the moral and ethical state of the world. Yet our state government is about to pass legislation that will allow women to terminate babies more

  • The Mustard Seed Series

    based on 4 ratings

    Sometimes we feel like we’re outnumbered by people who don’t believe in Jesus. There are times when we’re the only ones who want to do the right thing. But Jesus tells us that his kingdom may look small but in fact it will grow to be like a mighty tree th

    A Combined Children’s talk and sermon How big do you think God’s Kingdom is? As big as the Simpson desert or Kakadu? As big as this whole land of Australia? Jesus said the kingdom of heaven was like a mustard seed. Now I can’t show you a mustard seed but I did bring some other seeds with more

  • Truth Liberates Charity Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jul 25, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    Without truth, our charity degenerates into sentimentalism, and can be totally perverted into its opposite.

    Monday of 17th week in Course July 27, 2009 Caritas in Veritate (3) Joachim Jeremias taught that the parables about the Church should be read holistically. For instance, Jesus would say, “The kingdom of God is like this situation: you plant the tiniest seed, and without your doing much, it more

  • The Nature Of The Kingdom

    Contributed by Mark Foreman on Jul 23, 2009

    This message explores the nature of the Kingdom of heaven and of God and how Christians participate in bringing it "on earth as it is in heaven."

    We are learning the ways we "shrink Jesus down," from his robust loving nature. ? Last week we discovered his surprising agenda-a kingdom not a religious club. Transformed people of the king transforming their world. * The tension exists today between Jesus and religion. Religion establishes a more

    The editor-in-chief of Bible Study magazine addresses the importance of a Christian’s continued growth in Christ and challenges listeners to embrace God’s plan for their lives and their communities.

    We have all at one point or another asked a simple question to ourselves, "Does my life have meaning?" In a mixed up, chaotic world, we wonder, what difference am I making? Am I part of the problem, or am I part of the solution? Is my life relevant? And when it really gets hard we ask the deepest more

    To be a strong church we must include the "weeds" of society

    Matt 13:24-43 – “Seeds, Weeds, and Growth” It is a pleasure to be here with you in person this morning. I hear you had to sit through a rather long audio sermon of mine a couple of weeks ago. Don’t worry though lunch is very important to me as well so I promise not to keep you here too more

    First of a four part series on how our church impacts the community through the ministry of our members.

    Contributed by Steven Haguewood on Aug 8, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

    Good things come in small packages. In the same way, our faith must begin small. No one begins with great faith but grows in faith as we progress toward Christ and in His kingdom.

    FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS Text: Matthew 13:31-33 Scripture reading: Luke 13:18-21 INTRODUCTION 1. The largest man in the world starts out as a small baby. a. The largest redwood trees in the world start out in a small seed. b. The biggest ships on the sea start out as pencil lead being placed on more

    "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field...The kingdom of heaven is like ... finding one pearl of great value, .... the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind"

    A certain man went to Church one Sunday. He frowned when the organist missed a note during the opening hymn. He gave a mean stare at two teenagers talking to each other when the congregation was at prayer. During the Scripture Readings he kept looking impatiently at his watch. When the collection more

    Contributed by Paul Zwarich on Jul 25, 2008
    based on 10 ratings

    Even though the rich blessings God intends for us may appear to be of no more value than a seed or a handful of yeast we should not deceive ourselves.

    Lectionary 17 A Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52 This morning we heard a number of “One – Line Parables” that Jesus used to describe the Kingdom of God to illustrate how God’s power and authority is visible and expressed in our world. Unlike the longer “Story Parables” like the Good Samaritan or the more
