     | 1,178 views

    Our world creates a never ending cycle of always needing that one more thing to be accepted. Our church tells us we just need to do that one more thing to be good enough. Jesus just says come!

    Tonight I want to start our time together by taking a look at a couple of TV commercials. They are both Coke commercials from their new slogan, “The Coke side of life.” As we watch each one, I want you guys to really watch close and think about what each add is really communicating. ***Watch the ...read more

    Intro: 8 out of 9 school board members in Dover, PA were voted out last November. It would have been 9, but only 8 were up for re-election.

     | 8,986 views

    The consequences of the resurrection for a young adult audience – the outline of which is largely "borrowed" from Bill Hybels at the Willow Creek website.

    The If/Thens of Easter by Mike Sares It’s Easter time. Time to eat all the candy and marshmallow eggs. Time to pig out. There’s gotta be a nicer word for pig out. A euphemism, as it were. Hey, try to think up a nicer word for euphemism. And while you’re at it, think up a shorter word for ...read more

    Do you really want to be like the Jesus who spent His life touching the lepers, going to the parties held by the sinners, letting His feet be anointed by the prostitute who washed them with her tears and dried them with her hair and kissed them with her l

    Scandalous January 11, 2008 Mark 2:13-17 Intro: A friend of mine began his ministry quite well. He had some good early successes. He was a really strong teacher – he had a way of bringing the Bible to life, explaining it in fresh ways, which people could relate to. Maybe you’ve ...read more

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Mar 20, 2010
    based on 14 ratings
     | 3,637 views

    The Pharisees can't see why Jesus would want to "eat with such scum?" (Matthew 9:11). JESUS AGREES THAT THEY ARE SCUM! He just says, "Healthy people don't need a doctor-sick people do." (Matthew 9:12). There it is again - REDEMPTIVE POTENTIAL.

    Part 2 - Matthew 9:9-13 - JESUS, DID YOU JUST CALL ME SCUM? In Kiev, MONEY CHANGERS sit in little booths with a small window. You can't see their faces and they mutter to you in Russian as you hand over American dollars in exchange for Grivnas. Whenever I exchanged money I seemed to be getting ...read more

  • The Only Name

    based on 316 ratings
     | 32,324 views

    Brit Hume of Fox News got it right: No one says "What in Allah's name is going on?" No one texts "OMB" for "Oh My Buddha." Because only Jesus' name has the power and punch behind it to matter. Link inc. to formatted text, audio, PowerPoint.

    The Only Name Acts 4:12 http://gbcdecatur.org/sermons/OnlyName.html Acts 4:12 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Jesus. It's the only name people take in vain. The only name people swear by. ...read more

    A first person narrative of the story of Jonah, focussing on God’s propensity to forgive repentant sinners, and believers’ resentment of this

    I knew that this would happen! I just knew it! God is always the same! He is always merciful and full of grace. He always forgives people who repent! Even Assyrian scum-bags! There I was, minding my own business, working as an ordinary prophet and preacher in Gath Hephron when along came God and ...read more

    Here is what Paul wants the Corinthians to understand and what the Holy Spirit would have us understand. What matters is to follow Jesus Christ wherever that may lead us.

    Introduction It has been three weeks since we have been in 1 Corinthians. You will recall that Paul has been admonishing the Corinth saints for division in the church and for their being enamored with worldly wisdom. The underlying issue, we noted, was the tension between the church and Paul, ...read more

    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,483 views

    As we examine the calling of the prophet Isaiah, we can pick up on a transition that begins to occur to a life that is out of focus. As the presence and power of God becomes real to us as individuals, our life begins to come into focus.

    Bringing Your Life Into Focus By Readjusting Your View of God Text: Isaiah 6:1-7 Introduction: "Your view of God is the most important view you have, and to the extent your view of God is distorted…to that extent your life will be out of focus." Is your view of God in focus or is it blurry or ...read more

  • Spiritual Leadership Series

    Contributed by Bruce B. Miller on Jun 7, 2012
    based on 1 rating
     | 5,867 views

    Some groups put The Pastor on a pedestal as God’s annointed, a spiritual super-star to be admired and honored. In our passage today Paul sarcastically shreds this un-Christlike view of leadership.

    Spiritual Leadership 1 Corinthians 4 Most American Christians are soft. Our crosses are pretty jewelry, not instruments of brutal death. They warmly decorate our houses rather than warning of suffering. Particularly in the suburban Bible Belt, our versions of Christianity depict sanitized ...read more
