    As kids we sang: "I have decided to follow Jesus. No turning back!" But is that the reality of our adult lives? Are we willing to deny and sacrifice ourselves and all we have for Christ's sake?

    [Sermon preached on 3 June 2018, 2nd Sunday after Pentecost / 3rd year, ELCF Lectionary] When I was a kid—I think I was eight years old at the time—I attended a Summer Bible Camp. I will never forget it, for many reasons. In particular, I remember how at the end of the day’s program, we always ...read more

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on May 7, 2018
     | 4,455 views

    While serving the Lord and walking with Him, we learn a great paradox - genuine gain often comes through loss. We must lose certain things in order to gain what the Lord desires for us.

    Loss is Gain Matthew 16: 24-26 1 Tim.6:6-7 – But godliness with contentment is great gain. [7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. Many in our world today are fixated on material wealth and social status in this life. The majority of their energy ...read more

    With Easter being a few weeks away our focus begins to shift to Jesus' death and resurrection. When Jesus told his disciples about this one of them became a little upset. You know about Peter denying that he knew Jesus but that's just one of his denials.

  • Are You A Disciple?

    Contributed by Jerry Owen on Mar 6, 2018
    based on 1 rating
     | 4,216 views

    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.

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 ...read more

     | 3,839 views

    Jesus predicts His death and Peter doesn't want this to happen, but Jesus' reaction is quite nasty: 'Get behind me Satan'. This seems so out of character for Jesus - so what is going on here?

    THE CROSS IS A WAY OF LIVING. MT. 16: 21-27; Mark 8: 31-38 Today’s gospel reading is quite a strange story in the life of Jesus – He is quite nasty, definitely out of character. But the important thing here is to read or hear this story in the context of Peter’s human nature. This is the ...read more

  • Making Sense Of Suffering

    Contributed by Dr. Madana Kumar, Phd on Feb 26, 2018
     | 3,540 views

    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?

And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is ...read more

    In the Church of The Nazarene there is a wing of missions called Extreme Nazarenes and we are thankful for their service in the Kingdom of God, but, are they really Extreme or just what Jesus calls us all to be?

As it turned out it was a time of them explaining to us how the ...read more
