    Contributed by Rodney Johnson on Jul 31, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    This message talks about how we should respond when our backs are against the wall. I shared a very personal (and painful) experience as the backdrop for the message.

    When Your Back’s Against The Wall Scripture: II Chronicles 20 Let me say this before I say anything else this morning: “I do not always get it right!” This morning I want to share a personal, behind the scenes look at what can happen internally when your back is against the wall.

  • How Big Is Your God

    Contributed by Richard Clouse on Dec 4, 2002
    based on 41 ratings

    We can measure the size of the God we trust by comparing Him to the situations around us which takes great faith.

    (How Big is Your God?) Acts 16:22-34 Paul and Silas are in jail for preaching the Gospel. Very few of us have ever been incarcerated for preaching so it is hard to say what we would do if we were one of these two men. We can learn from them that the bigger your God, the bigger the tasks you more

  • The Christian's Godly Responses Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Feb 17, 2006
    based on 6 ratings

    In James 5:13-16a, the brother of our Lord teaches us how the Christian ought to respond in times of trouble, happiness, sickness, and sin.

    Scripture James is the brother of our Lord Jesus. Since Jesus was Mary’s firstborn child (Luke 2:7), James was obviously a younger brother. In fact, it is likely that James was the second-oldest of the five sons that Mary had (cf. Mark 6:3). James eventually came to believe that Jesus was in more

    based on 19 ratings

    Men are to be worship leaders in the home, in the church, and the community. The elders must teach the young men to be worshipers in Spirit and in Truth. It is time for men to stand up and worship.

    In a wide since worship is all that relates to the Christian life, everything inour life should be an act of worship, in the since that worship is everything that brings glory to God.

  • Each Person Is Accountable For Their Sin Series

    Contributed by Jason Smith on Oct 19, 2013

    Why was God punishing his people? They thought God was unfairly punishing them for their father's sins. But it was their sin that made them subject to God's righteous judgment

    A favorite way that people today make excuses for their mistakes is to simply blame them on somebody else, and the blame most of the time is given to someone that is not there to defend themselves. It is our parents’ fault, our spouse’s fault, or even society’s fault. Whatever more

    How can we be faithful like Daniel?

    Hebrews 11:6 states, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Do we believe in God? Do we desire a good life? Faith is the key to life! God tells us in His Word, Christians more

  • Jesus: How To Be A Follower In Times Of Despair Series

    Contributed by Rick Long on Feb 12, 2004
    based on 79 ratings

    Fourth in the series "Meet the Cast." As you study Jesus’ life you realize that even though He did not lay aside his deity, He did humble himself as a man, to serve all humanity. So Jesus understands what we are facing in our lives.

    I love the way “The Passion of The Christ” movie begins, with the reminder that 400 years before Jesus was born his sacrifice was foretold in a vivid way. Isaiah 53:5 (LB) But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed--and we were more

    Trials in the life of a Christian are a norm. But it is how we handles those trials, that separates us from the rest.

    From Trouble to Triumph James 2:2-12 Intro Trials in the life of a Christian are a part of life. How we view those trials and handle them is a whole different story though. The Scriptures mention at least eight purposes for the Lord’s allowing trials to come to the lives of His more
