     | 2,444 views

    It is all too easy to get our eyes on things that we do not need to be concerned about. We get off focus and cause troubles for ourselves and for others around us. Hear what Jesus has to say about this matter.

    KINGDOM SEEKERS Mt. 6:33 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (KJV) 33 Mas buscad primeramente el reino de Dios y su justicia, y todas estas cosas os serán añadidas. (RVG04) Mt. 20:20-27 Central Text Mr. 10:35-41 ...read more

  • Serving Like Jesus Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Feb 8, 2016
     | 11,032 views

    In this first sermon, I establish that we must be conformed into the likeness of Jesus. Because He was a servant, we must also become servants. A resource I am basing the series on is Charles Swindoll's "Improving Your Serve."

    A. One day a woman was interviewing a prospective butler and asked him, “Are you trained to serve guests?” 1. The prospective butler replied “Yes, ma’am, I have been trained to serve guests both ways.” 2. The woman looked puzzled and asked, “What do you mean, ...read more

    William Gladstone said, "Selfishness is the greatest curse of the human race." Think about it; if everyone just looked out for #1 then no one would be satisfied; including #1. I can gain a lot by being selfish...except what's truly important.

If everyone just looked out for #1 then no one would be satisfied; including #1. There's a lot to be gained by being selfish except what matters most. ...read more

    James and John wanted to to sit at Christ's side in His kingdom - is this raw ambition? or is there something else here we can learn from?

    Ambition Matthew 20:20 - 28 Today we see two of Jesus' closest disciple being ambitious, the request to sit at Christ's side in His kingdom.

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Nov 4, 2017
    based on 3 ratings
     | 10,773 views

    Jesus teaches three ways NOT to go after self-worth, and then concludes with the only truly lasting and meaningful way to find one's worth. Not only that, but he models that true way for us.

    Matthew 23:1-12 The Source of Self-worth Do you ever wonder why some people are such jerks? Sometimes people can be so cruel to others! And yet, behind the facade of the bully lies a deep insecurity, a fear of rejection. Our bookstores are full of books about self-worth. I did a quick ...read more

     | 3,508 views

    Some of our rewards are represented by crowns. Whether victors’ garlands or signs of authority — or both— they merit further examination.
