  • Time For A Career Change Series

    Contributed by Thomas Swope on Sep 27, 2012
    based on 1 rating

    A study of the Gospel of Matthew 9: 9 – 13

    Matthew 9: 9 – 13 Time For A Career Change As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him. 10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax more

  • Workers And Work

    Contributed by David Wilson on Oct 26, 2012
    based on 1 rating

    Where is a church supposed to get workers and what are they supposed to be doing?

    Matthew 9:9-13 There are two Biblical models that show where a church is to get workers. There is a model where churches send out workers to strengthen or to plant other churches. The church at Antioch sent Paul out and later Paul sent Timothy and Titus to strengthen the churches where more

  • To Fast Or Not To Fast, That Is The Question Series

    Contributed by Thomas Swope on Oct 10, 2012

    A study of the Gospel of Matthew 9: 14 – 17

    Matthew 9: 14 – 17 To Fast Or Not To Fast, That Is The Question 14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast?” 15 And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the more

  • Struggling To Make New Friends

    Contributed by Darren Sirmans on Jul 29, 2012

    Putting new cloth unto old garments is not wise.

    While Christ the Holy Ghost is with us, we are not supposed to be mourning. The Holy Ghost is with us and comforts us. If you are mourning about your situation, you don’t have perfect peace but you’re zapping the life of Christ out of yourself. To have perfect peace is evidence that the more

  • The Church Has Left The Building

    based on 1 rating

    If we are to become “contagious”, we must get out of our comfort zone and among the sinners.

    The Church Has Left the Building January 18, 2009 Evening Service Immanuel Baptist Church, Wagoner, OK Rick Boyne Message Point: If we are to become “contagious”, we must get out of our comfort zone and among the sinners. Focus Passage: Matthew 9:10-13 Introduction: "Elvis more

  • Why Do We Ask Less From God Than He’s Willing To Give?

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Jun 12, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    This message looks at the healing of the paralytic and asks why we settle for less than God's best when we ask from God. It then looks at four examples of how we do similar things today.

    - We want to begin with something that stands out early in the story: the fact that they obviously come for physical healing, but Jesus responds to the man by saying that his sins are forgiven. - Why would Jesus do that? Was He unaware of what they’d come for? (Obviously not.) Was He more

  • How Could God Love Someone Like Me?

    Contributed by John Lowe on Nov 4, 2013

    It was a scandal. Jesus was hanging out with some folk who were not well-respected. In fact, they were religious and social outcasts – and Jesus is not only eating with them, He is enjoying their company.

    9 September 2005 How Could God Love Someone Like Me? Matthew 9:9-13 Introduction As we get started this morning, I want to begin with a question. If Jesus were walking among us today, would He eat at Lauren’s sports bar, “Goony Birds?” If you’re thinking more

  • Why Did The "Sinners" Love Hanging Out With Jesus?

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Dec 30, 2013
    based on 4 ratings

    It's a fact worth pondering: the tax collectors and sinners LIKED being with Jesus. That's not usually how the lost feel around us. What did Jesus have that we don't?

    AN IMPORTANT FACT: The tax collectors and “sinners” liked hanging out with Jesus. - Matthew 9:10. - It’s easy to rush past verse 10 and get to the rest of this story, but it’s worth settling for a moment here and thinking about its implications. The tax collectors and more

  • Did Jesus Come To Repair The Old Way?

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Jan 13, 2014

    Jesus' comment on wineskins is confusing to many. What does it mean and how does it tie into His comments right before that on fasting?

    DID JESUS COME TO REPAIR THE OLD WAY? There are some of the same elements, but we need to know that this is a new thing. - Matthew 9:14, 16-17. - There will still be fasting – Jesus doesn’t dismiss it. Instead, He says it’ll happen when He is taken away from them (when the more

  • How Focusing On Sacrifice Can Twist Our Faith Into Something Ugly

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Jan 6, 2014

    Why focusing on sacrifice causes trouble and how focusing on compassion (as Jesus instructs us to) brings better results.

    WHAT'S WRONG WITH SACRIFICE? Sacrifice is not intrinsically bad, but the problem is when we say that more sacrifice equals a better Christian. - Matthew 9:13. - There is a lot that is good to sacrifice. Like many other things, though, making it the ultimate goal of our Christian life puts us more

  • "Jesus Seeks Sinners"

    Contributed by Rick Finitzer on Oct 24, 2013

    Jesus’ Mission was to save sinners! Biblical Christianity, the one revealed in the Word of God, teaches the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ was on a rescue mission, sent by God the Father, to save the lost.

    Cornerstone Church September 29, 2013 “Jesus Seeks Sinners” Matthew 9:9-13 The following happened to Dr. Tony Campolo: more

  • How God Turns Trash Into Treasure

    Contributed by Rick Crandall on Sep 15, 2013

    1. Jesus finds us (vs. 9). 2. Jesus invites us to follow Him (vs. 9). 3. Jesus fellowships with us (vs. 10). 4. Jesus functions as a doctor to heal us from our sin (vs. 11-13).

    “What We All Have Felt” (Betrayed) Text: Mark 14:10-11, 44-46 I want to talk to you today about something that is NOT funny. If we could have worked it out I would have showed you how NOT funny it really is on the screen by showing you a video clip from the PASSION OF CHRIST. I'll share an more

  • Whosoever Means Me Series

    Contributed by Richard White on Mar 3, 2012

    Jesus did not call the qualified...he qualified the called.

    Whosoever means me, Anyone means everyone Matthew 9:9-11 John 3:16/ Luke 9:23 **Almost every churchgoer know John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Why is this so easily more

  • The Reach

    Contributed by Pat Cook on Dec 5, 2011

    Continuing in a series about the purposes of our church. This is about outreach.

    Matthew 9:9-13 – The Reach Today I want to tell you a story. It’s a good story, too. It has conflict and underhanded dealings. It has redemption and the promise of a bright future ahead. Plus, it’s true. Today’s story comes to you from Matthew 9:9-13. The same story is more

  • Sin Remover!

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Jan 12, 2015

    Jesus is meeting two needs at once; 1-He is healing the body and the soul for the benefit of this man 2-And healed the physical body, for the benefit of those observing!!

    Matthew 9:1-8-So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city. Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.” And at once some of the scribes said more
