    based on 8 ratings

    A sermon examining the importance of vigilance and devotion to Jesus.

    Wake Up, Watch & Pray Mark 14:27-40 Some people are natural early risers. They are up before the sun and ready to start their day. Somehow they do this without the assistance of an alarm clock. Not all of us are so fortunate! During the warmer months I like to get up early and walk 3 to 5 more

    based on 1 rating

    THE ENEMY KNOWS YOUR SCHEDULE MATTHEW 13:24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, more

  • Jesus The Struggler Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 21, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Sometimes we so emphasize that Jesus is the Son of God (fully divine) that we forget He is also the Son of Man (fully human). At Gethsemane, we see Jesus’ human nature struggling with the perfect will of God — for our sakes!

    Jesus the Struggler (Mark 14:32-42) 1. We all do goofy things. “Today, I took a picture of the combination to my new lock so I would always have it on my phone if I ever forgot it. I put my phone in my gym locker, locked it with the new lock, then promptly forgot the more

    Contributed by Dr. Madana Kumar, Phd on Oct 26, 2008
    based on 5 ratings

    The Book of Leviticus is, arguably , one of the least read books of the old testament. However, there are some precious lessons for us Christians in this book. This book teaches us about Experiencing the Presence of the Lord, Honoring Him with meaningful

    Getting Close to my God - Part I Some old testament books are never read. The book of Leviticus could well qualify for that award.
