  • The Unusual Gift Of Common Sense

    Contributed by John Perry on Jan 22, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 7,038 views

    If common sense is so common why don't more people have it?

    Bunbury Sun pm 23/01/11 “The unusual gift of common sense” Intro: I’ve often wondered what it must be like being a judge sitting on the bench hearing people’s disputes & having to work it all out. I conclude that to be able to function in position you need a liberal ...read more

  • Wisdom

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Sep 1, 2004
    based on 38 ratings
     | 5,533 views

    Wisdom comes from God, and is a very real and practical sense of what to do, how to do it, and why it must be done...but wisdom is no guarantee that we’ll act wisely.

    Wisdom II Chronicles 1:1-11, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts “Ask for whatever you want Me to give you” (vs 7). If God handed you a “blank check”--if you could ask Him for anything and receive it, what would your pray for? I saw a “prayer” on a ...read more

  • Laying Up Treasures

    Contributed by Paul George on Jun 9, 2006
    based on 3 ratings
     | 2,565 views

    A preoccupation with hoarding earthly treasure makes little practical sense. Eternal investments, investments in the kingdom of heaven, are far more profitable. They are certain, and the benefits long lasting. Earthly investments are short-lived.

    Laying up Treasures Matthew 6:19-34 The Lord Jesus told the disciples, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves ...read more

     | 4,873 views

    I believe that of all people in the world, we Christians should want to succeed. What makes us different are our priorities, definition of success, and ways on getting there. Let’s take a lesson from a weary team of fishermen who felt failure until Jesus

    Intro: Almost every normal person is interested in success. Observe the business section and self-help section of the local bookstore. Look at the best-selling books. See the ads section of newspapers for invitations to “success” seminars. I believe that of all people in the world, we Christians ...read more

  • Don’t Be Confused About The Truth Series

    Contributed by Jerry Watts on Nov 14, 2010
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,045 views

    To be confused about the church begins with confusion about the truth for vice-versa.

    Don’t be Confused – about the truth John 18:36-38 * The first time I heard the term was during the Bill Clinton presidency. Of course I knew it went on, but I had never heard the term (in political jargon) ‘spin.’ Does everyone know what ‘spin’ actually is? My personal definition is something ...read more

  • The Gospel According To Abraham

    Contributed by Jerry Shirley on Apr 27, 2011
    based on 35 ratings
     | 3,961 views

    Paul spends a lot of time on justification because our nature tries to clothe ourselves with righteousness in the form of fig leaves, but we are not truly clothed with righteousness until God does the clothing. Link inc. to formatted text, audio, PowerPoi

  • The Preciousness Of Death

    Contributed by Sonny Thomas, Sr. on May 1, 2002
    based on 328 ratings
     | 54,284 views

    Although difficult for us to cope with, the death of a saint is precious to God.

    "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." This seems like an odd verse. Why would death be precious to God? Wasn’t it the entrance of sin into the world that brought forth the curse of death? Certainly God abhors sin, and I would be willing to say that ...read more

  • A Colony Of Heaven

     | 3,138 views

    In this passage Paul describes some changes that should mark the life of a believer. He sets the bar of Christian living very high for himself and for all those who profess to follow him as he follows the Lord Jesus Christ.

    A Colony Of Heaven Philippians 3:13-21 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ ...read more
