  • "am I Truly Jesus Focused"

    Contributed by Brad King on Dec 28, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    It is easy to assert that it is all about Jesus. Sometimes we believe that our focus is sincerely upon the person and work of Christ. But, is it? John the Baptist was Jesus focused, but when are we? Matthew 3:1-17 provides five moments when we are Jesus focused.

    1. We are focusing on Jesus when we call people to repentance. Mt. 3:1-2; Mt. 4:17 2. We are focusing on Jesus when we clarify his identity. Mt. 3:3; Is. 40:3; Mt. 16:13 3. We are focusing on Jesus when we complete our God given tasks. Mt. 3:4-6 4. We are focusing on Jesus when we more

  • Controversial Character Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Kruschel on Dec 30, 2019

    John the Baptist's message of repentance is just as controversial today as it was in in his day. It was a message that caused people to think and evaluate what they were doing and why. It does the same today? Ready for some controversy?

  • The Prophets: People Get Ready Series

    Contributed by James Jackson on Dec 16, 2019

    Centuries before Jesus was born, Isaiah prophesied that Israel's warfare would be accomplished, and her iniquity pardoned. Who are we at war with? How is iniquity pardoned? And what does that have to do with Christmas?

    Please open your Bibles to Isaiah 40. As we begin the season of Advent, we are going to look at some very familiar words from the Old Testament, particularly if you are a fan of Handel’s Messiah: “The voice of one crying: In the wilderness prepare the way of theLord. Make straight in the desert a more

  • The Lumberjack God

    Contributed by Joel Pankow on Dec 7, 2019

    John threatened the Pharisees and Sadducees that God would cut them down. We are all cut down to size from time to time, and we need it.

    12.8.19 Matthew 3:10 Already the ax is ready to strike the root of the trees. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. God has compared Himself to a dove, an eagle, a lion, a tower, a fortress, a counselor and a friend. Today God puts on the more

    How would you like to receive a Christmas card with the figure of John the Baptist on it, saying— You “brood of vipers” (Matthew 3:7)?

    How would you like to receive a Christmas card with the figure of John the Baptist on it, saying— You “brood of vipers” (Matthew 3:7)? The expression means malice.

  • Too Much Religion In The Wrong Place

    Contributed by Michael Stark on Sep 12, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Religion is the expression of one's faith put into practice. For many professed Christians, religion is all they have, because they don't have the faith of Christ the Lord. Too much religion will tend to lead us astray. Faith will lead us to Christ.

    “When [John] saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, ‘You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God more
