  • Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

    Contributed by Thomas Clawser on Sep 2, 2017

    Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom. In similar fashion, Jesus grants me the joy of sharing the Gospel as He desires, guides and allows. You have the same opportunity.

    What exactly do you believe about Jesus? In my seminary days, our first semester in Systematic Theology dealt with that question. Our professor described Jesus as “the proleptic, salvific, hidden appearance of the eschatological kingdom of God”. Did you get that? Take notes; there might be a test more

  • On This Rock

    Contributed by I. Grant Spong on Aug 23, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Matthew 16:13-20 What does this passage actually say and not say to us?

    Prelude, Purpose, Plan Protestants, Orthodox and Catholics largely agree on perhaps 95% of the most important teachings of Christianity. Why do we drift from the message that Jesus taught into partisanship and graceless rivalry? For instance, how do we deal with the claim by Rome of exclusive more

    Peter struggled just like each of us struggle with our faith but one glorious day we will receive wings and fly.

    Matthew 16:13-20 Without the Struggle, There Are No Wings A family brought in two cocoons that were about to hatch. They watched as the first one began to open and the butterfly inside squeezed very slowly and painfully through a tiny hole that it chewed in one end of the cocoon. After more

  • An Eye For An Eye Makes The Whole World Blind

    Contributed by Greg Colby on Aug 23, 2017

    The scriptures in Exodus provide a limitation on unlimited vengeance being meted out when someone is wronged, however Jesus declared that even an eye for an eye was going too far - Jesus commands his followers to turn the other cheek - to not resist evil

    Be Holy. Be Perfect. Our Gospel and our OT readings this morning present us with two illustrations of how God expects his people to live. Each one describes different things to do, and not to do – however the goal of both readings is to provide us with a framework within which to seek justice more

  • Making Sense Of Suffering

    Contributed by Dr. Madana Kumar, Phd on Feb 26, 2018

    There is suffering all around us. How do we make sense of all the suffering ? Especially the suffering that good people go through? Where can we turn to when we need to make sense of our suffering.

    Allow me to start with a well-known and (may be poor) joke about marriage. You all know about the three rings of marriage right, It starts with the engagement ring, it gets solemnized with the wedding ring and then continues with… suffering. Right? Leslie and I of course have the privilege of more

  • The Path To Glorious Victory

    based on 1 rating

    If you don’t know God’s definition of victory, how are you going to know when you experience it?

    Matthew 16:20-22 One of the great aspects of life is victory. Everybody assumes that they are going to be victorious and successful in everything they do. Countless conferences are given all over the place to show you how you can be successful in whatever you’re doing. Success is very more

  • Are You A Disciple?

    Contributed by Jerry Owen on Mar 6, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    Much of the church today has watered down the gospel so much in order to just attract attenders that Lordship and discipleship are completely foreign concepts. Many want only a casual relationship with Christ, but Christ is not a casual relationship God.

    ARE YOU A DISCIPLE? Matthew 16:13-27 This week I was in my storage room looking for something. I reached to the top shelf and felt fur and claws. A flying squirrel jumped up on a box and stared at me. I yelled for Lana to come. Why? Because I needed a sermon illustration. She got there more

  • Who Is Jesus?

  • Who Do You Say I Am?

    Contributed by Rodney Buchanan on Aug 25, 2011
    based on 11 ratings

    It is not what others say who Christ is, it is what you say that matters.

    To capture the full scope of the story today we have to go back to what happened before. Luke tells us that Jesus had commissioned his disciples to preach and heal and sent them out all over Israel to carry out his mission. News of what was happening spread quickly and there was great excitement more

    I can still remember the first time I ever drove. I was anxious to get started, so within a week of my 15th birthday, my Mom took me to the Driver's License office, and I got my learner's permit. That afternoon, she took me out for the first time. I only drove on our street that day, we worked on more
