  • The Traits Of Token Religion

    Contributed by Donnie Martin on Jul 19, 2009

    Just because someone attaches the word "worship" to a religious service, doesn’t mean that the term fits. This was often the case with Israel’s religous rituals. Sadly, it is often true of many church services in our day.

    The Traits Of Token Religion Text: Phil.1: 3-11 Intro: Today I want to focus on the thought mentioned in the second half of Philippians 1: 10. Paul tells the Philippians that he was praying that their love for Christ might continue to grow, resulting in knowledge, discernment, and more

  • What It Takes To Be Heard By God

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 5, 2009
    based on 9 ratings

    If you want to be heard by God, make sure God and not others are your audience, make sure that it is really you who is speaking, and make sure to forgive and to receive forgiveness.

    The morning worship service had reached an emotional climax during the pastor’s fervent prayer. He had carefully crafted it with fine liturgical phrases, hallowed by centuries of use. It was backed up by a throbbing organ, playing a hymn that gently drew worshipers back to thoughts of that amazing more

    This morning I want to look at another great woman in the New Testament. This woman is named, and even though we are given her name there is not much more said about her. It is all contained in two verses. Now these two verses ar not in sequence. They are

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 23, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    In order to grow in social and relational wisdom, we must understand what is likely; fortunately, Proverbs gives us a divine perspective.

    Caution: We Are In the People Zone (Proverbs 18:1-4) 1. Wisdom not valued much in modern society, so wisdom literature not popular in our culture; In the past, Aesop’s fables–which are amazing– used to be a common resource for popular wisdom. But in the ancient near east, wisdom literature more

  • Hollow Hosannas

    Contributed by Jerry Flury on Mar 27, 2010
    based on 9 ratings

    Hosanna! For some these shouts of praise were true expressions of worship; for others they were hollow hosannas – hollow hosannas which were empty words that outwardly appeared beautiful but lacked substance. Is the praise we offer only hollow hosannas?

    Hollow Hosannas Text: Matthew 21:1-17 Introduction: On the Sunday before His crucifixion Christ entered the city of Jerusalem riding upon a donkey while a multitude of people “went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ more

  • Prayer And The Lord's Prayer

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 24, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    The Lord's Prayer is not a 'carved in stone' set of words that we must use, but is a good guide for how to talk to God, Who wants us to pour out of hearts to Him, but not to try to impress others by our long and fancy words and 'super-spirituality'.

    Matthew 6 verses 5 – 13 PRAYING and THE LORD'S PRAYER Jesus based his teachings, and advice, and especially his parables on things, events and situations, that would be instantly recognisable and understandable to the people He was addressing. So, when He said ‘When you pray, more

    My wife Lindsay, who co-pastors with me preached this sermon in my series and took on this challenging passage about faith and works.James’ readers gave lip service to the faith and then went home and did as they pleased. Applicable for today's church.

    Our passage today from James talks about this often controversial passage from James of faith and action. I would like to read it from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase (The Message) this morning and then we will look at 3 sections individually from the NLT version. James 2:14-26The more

  • Prayer Keys - Sincerity Series

    Contributed by Mark Stepherson on Dec 15, 2011

    Prayer keys are not ways of manipulating God. Rather, they are like a boat hook. If I am in a row boat and cast a hook to shore, does pulling move the shore to me or does it move me to the shore? Prayer keys do not pull God to our will. They pull us to Go

    “These people come near to me with their mouth & honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.” Isaiah 29:13 Before saying anything else to introduce sincerity as a prayer key, I want to repeat something about more
