Although my buddies enjoyed it to some extent, they were a little bit spooked by some of the darker groups I chose. This was mainly because they were all good church-going boys ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 7,552 views

    Because of the clutter and the noise in our lives, we often fail to see what Jesus does and can do for us. It seems as if we are constantly grasping, but never grabbing hold of that which changes us for the better.

    He walked on water which shows us that nothing can separates us from Him. He made that water into wine which shows us He can create something out of nothing. He ate and drank with people that we would never want to be caught around which shows us that we are all deserving of even the smallest ...read more

     | 7,549 views

    This sermon was a part of a series I did during our church's annual 21-day church-wide fast. We were looking at different elements of a fast. This message focuses on a fast as a time to simply sit at the feet of Jesus and enjoy His presence.

    Today I want to take a closer look at the life of a woman we meet in the Bible. She seems to have this “intimacy with God” thing figured out about as well as anyone. Her name is Mary. And the interesting thing about Mary is where you often find her in relation to Jesus in various ...read more
