  • The Place Of The Skull – The Scarcity Of Essentials (7/12) Series

    Contributed by Eduardo (Eddie) Fernandes on Oct 12, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    We are living unprecedented times. We ask ourselves what would Jesus do? This good question can be misleading. Rather we should ask, what did Jesus do? He was born into an era of injustice, violence and pain. He was the victim of abuse and injustice. What did He do?

    Message by Gabi Faria Introduction It is my understanding that you have been in a message series called a Reflection on the 12 stations of the cross. Just last week my sister preached (worship leader preaching, preacher can’t sing, my voice would disconnect our network with Jesus!) on the Via more

  • Christian Challenge Sermon V: Make Or Break Situations Series

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Jul 15, 2020

    MAKE OR BREAK SITUATIONS PRESENT A DISTINCT CHALLENGE TO CHRISTIANS “Cross my heart and hope to die!” Did any of you ever use that phrase to swear to a friend that you would keep a promise? As kids, we engaged in such promise making, except that we might have more

    Contributed by Vic Folkert on May 18, 2020

    Getting Life Right: RE-CYCLING RELATIONSHIPS—Matthew 5:38-48 Most relationships follow a simple rule: “What goes around comes around.” If interactions between people are going in a positive direction, the relationship thrives, with reciprocal affirmation, encouragement, cooperation, and kindness. more

  • Faith And Suffering - Reacting Or Responding Series

    Contributed by Roberta Karchner on May 2, 2020

    1 Peter talks a lot about Suffering. How should we act and react as Christians on this subject

    1 Peter 2:21-25 Matthew 5:38-48 Psalm 23 Our primary passage today is the one from 1 Peter, and I confess, none of us like what he has to say. I added the Matthew 5 passage, because sometimes it is easier to hear if we know it came directly from Jesus. Both passages are addressing the same more

  • A New Righteousness Part Iii

    Contributed by Monty Newton on Mar 10, 2020

    METAPHORS OF MORTIFICATION. Matthew 5:27-42. Sometimes the Sermon on the Mount has been the called the new Law. This is not necessarily helpful. We are not under law, but under grace (cf. Romans 6:14). 1. When Jesus says, “But I say unto you,” He is entering into the spirit of what more

  • Seventh Sunday In Ordinary Time -- 7th Sunday, Year A

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jan 27, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Love your enemies

    There is a sign in the Princeton University Store basement which cleverly suggests: "Love your enemies—it will drive them crazy." Jesus’ ethical teaching is higher than this example because love of enemies is not a consequentialist ethic, hoping that the other person will change. Love more

  • More To Do As Christians

    Contributed by Grant Adams on Dec 27, 2019

    Often there are two attitudes a Christian has toward serving Christ. The possibility of growing wearing and why do we have to do so much.

    Most of the New Testament was written to the disciples of Christ. Jesus taught from every angle to build His disciples. These Jews knew the Old Testament. He wanted them to know that He did not come to destroy the moral laws of God, vs. 17. He actually came to add to them. His conversation went more

  • The Sermon On The Mount (Part Twelve) Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Nov 18, 2019

    Throughout the sermon on the mount, Jesus clarified misconceptions. He explained the deeper implications of the law and broadened their understanding so they could conduct themselves according to God's intentions. Today, Jesus does this regarding retaliation.

    THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT (part twelve) Matt. 5:38-42 Jane Vajnar writes the story about her friend's four young boys. They were always full of energy; even in church. But the sermon her minister preached on turning the other cheek got their undivided attention. The minister stressed that no more
