  • A Different Drummer Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Mar 12, 2012
    based on 1 rating

    Not much is said about self-denial and sacrifice in today's church and society, but it is central to the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

    Mark 8:31-38 “A Different Drummer” INTRODUCTION Selective hearing is a curious human phenomenon. We have the ability to hear only what we want to hear. Teenagers can hear the word “food,” but they have trouble hearing, “Do your homework,” or “Take more

  • Freedom Through Self-Denial

    Contributed by Norayr Hajian on Apr 1, 2008
    based on 18 ratings

    On the one hand, Jesus says "deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me." On the other hand Jesus says "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." The message explains how is self-denial is a life "to the fullest".

    Today we’re going to look at a topic that is very personal. The scripture is from Luke 9:23 “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Just hearing these words is difficult. Putting them into practice seems utterly hopeless, unrealistic. We more

  • Get Behind Me, Satan

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jul 28, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus says that the Son of Man MUST suffer greatly...

    24B. Talk about anti-climactic: Peter’s inspired answer that Jesus is “The One,” (the Messiah), through whom God will accomplish all that he promised is followed by the rebuke of, “Get behind me, Satan.” e.g. A married lady went out shopping one day and when she returned home she brought with more

  • Go The First Ten Feet

    Contributed by Thomas Clawser on Apr 7, 2017

    Self-denial is to be lifted with Jesus—and the first ten feet of his ascent is on the Cross. You cannot reach for Jesus without letting go of the things you’re holding onto. Make it your passion to go the first ten feet with Jesus.

    "When I am lifted-up," Jesus said, "I will draw all people to myself." And just in case you are tempted to interpret this up-lifted status to mean something glitzy, John sticks in a little commentary in verse 33 to make clear that the "lifting up" Jesus had in mind was the cross. Ultimately Jesus more

    Contributed by Travis Johnson on Mar 17, 2006
    based on 130 ratings

    What is the secret to real Christian living? Not how much you know; great leadership ability; personal charisma; or even a winning, positive attitude. The real key to Christian living is summed up in 2 words: FOLLOW ME.

    based on 17 ratings

    The importance of preaching a gospel that does not leave men in their sins and uncommitted to Jesus.

    Grace and the Gospel We must be careful not to preach a gospel that leaves men in their sins and uncommitted to Jesus Christ.
