  • Seeking Crumbs From Jesus

    Contributed by John Kapteyn on Oct 18, 2000
    based on 428 ratings

    Today we see how the faith of a Canaanite woman found expression in the apparent rejection of her by Christ.

    Introductory Considerations 1. The scene before us seems very wrong. The reactions and words of Jesus are not what I would have expected them to be. If I were only able to share one story from His ministry with an unbeliever, surely this is not the one that I would chose, for the impression they more

    Practice Christian Humility by remembering your history and by remebering His story.

    The price of pride is going up. No, really. In an effort to stem showboating and taunting after touchdowns, the NFL has started handing out huge fines totalling thousands of dollars. Pride doesn’t come cheap in our circles either. While we may never get slapped with a fine for a display of more

    March 18, 2007 "Andrew--The Power of an Ordinary Life" John 1:35-42 INTRODUCTION: We don’t hear much about Andrew in the scriptures, but he was the first one of the disciples that Jesus called. He lived in Bethsaida of Galilee and was a fisherman. He was a very ordinary person--more of more

  • Smackdown! The Trickster Vs. The Hipster Series

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Aug 14, 2006
    based on 20 ratings

    In this strange wrestling match between Jacob and God, friends struggle with one another and the weaker overcomes the stronger. Find out how God used this wrestling match to help Jacob mature in his faith.

    Although I don’t watch pro-wrestling (my parents didn’t allow it lest I practice “piledrivers” on my little sister), I do get a kick out of the wrestlers’ names. There’s Junkyard Dog, Johnny Nitro, The Boogeyman, and The Big Show just to name a few. On our final episode of “Jake TV,” we’ll witness more

    based on 126 ratings

    A look at those lesser known people of faith.

    “Abigail: A Hidden Hero” 1 Samuel 25 Scripture is jam packed with men and women of great character. Who should we select as our models? We could choose any of the people listed in Hebrews 11. All the ones listed in the “Hall of Faith” are those whose integrity sparkles like a star in the more

    In an unusual encounter Jesus has, we see some concrete steps to seeing God work in our lives.

    WHEN YOU DON’T GET THE RESPONSE YOU WANT… Mark 7:24-30 INTRO: What does it take to get what you ask for? As kids, we perfect ways of asking… doing chores, etc. In A Christmas Story, Ralphie goes to elaborate ends to get the response he wants: a Red Ryder BB gun. What about God? Does more

  • What's Up With Envy? Series

    Contributed by Bruce Landry on May 23, 2005
    based on 10 ratings

    We are admonished in God’s word to put away envy. Let us study how envy can destroy our lives if we do not take authority in Christ to put it away.

    ENVY (Heb. qin’â; Gk. phthonos). (1) That discontented feeling that arises in the selfish heart in view of the superiority of another (real or imagined), nearly tantamount to jealousy (Psalm 37:1; Psalm 73:3; Proverbs 24:1, 19; Phil. 1:15; etc.). (2) That malignant passion that sees in more

  • Who Is Jesus

    Contributed by Jeff Ruth on May 25, 2003
    based on 70 ratings

    We need to get our minds off of sharing gossip, recipes, and social sagas and get them on sharing Jesus.

    WHO IS JESUS One of the saddest things happening in this country today has to do with churches. Today church houses are more of a social club than a place where God’s people gather together to repent, fellowship, praise, and worship Him. You hear people all of the time talking about what’s more

    Every denomination has heroes of the faith. Perhaps if you are Baptist – it is Charles Spurgeon! If you are Pentecostal, it may be Aimee Semple McPherson or Phoebe Palmer! Or if you belong to the Alliance Church – it may be A.W. Tozer! These people are not only an inspiration to the people of more

  • The Greater Inheritance (Part 2)

    Contributed by Eddie Snipes on Jan 8, 2002
    based on 30 ratings

    Is our inheritance in this life, the life to come, or both?

    Greater Inheritance (Part 2) Obtaining Our Reward It is often hard for us to grasp, but the Christian life is not a self-centered life. God calls us to lay down our life - not fulfill our life. Our satisfaction, gratification and fulfillment are God’s responsibility. The one who lays down more
