    Jesus’ stern warning to the Pharisees in Matthew 23:13-39 is also important for church leaders today. A Year D sermon.

    It is such a privilege to be a church leader, especially in kind and loving churches. It is a grave responsibility to feed God’s sheep and guide people that we are privileged to call our friends, on their journey to eternity. Overseers of churches are far from perfect, but some mistakes are worse ...read more

  • Jesus’ Last Sermon Series

     | 13,565 views

  • Weightless Faith

     | 2,822 views

    We hear Jesus say “My yoke is easy, My burden is light” (Mt. 11:30). And we choose to run with that “easy” life! We love to forget that He also said, ““If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Mt. 16:24)

    Weightless Faith Philippians 3:17-21 Is the Christian life only about avoiding wrong? Is an “Avoidance” lifestyle all that God expects of us or is there more? Like bringing Glory to God in faith by taking action! Serving others! We hear Jesus say “My yoke is easy, My burden ...read more

  • Pharisee Or Holiness?

    Contributed by Craig Benner on Oct 22, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 4,157 views

    There are many who would argue that a Pharisee and one who believes in holiness are one in the same. I beg to differ. True holiness affects the external and the internal. It affects the acts and the attitude.

    Are you a Pharisee or are you Holiness? Let us see if there is a difference and determine to understand why some people have trouble differentiating between the two. Pharisee = a person in the role of religious service who believes that his or her title and/or office automatically make him or ...read more

    We are impressed with zeal. Certainly the Jews of Jesus day had tremendous zeal; passion for what they believed. But zeal and passion can easily be focused on the wrong thing.
