  • Stumbling Stone Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Aug 11, 2013
     | 2,601 views

    We can be set adrift amid a sea of relativism by our own choice, or be anchored in the Truth. God will be for us either a stepping stone or stumbling block...either our hiding place or a bolder blocking our way.

    Where do you get your news? From TV, radio, newspapers, the internet, your telephone? Where do you get truth? According to Isaiah, a lot of people would rather believe fanciful theories than facts. More and more people make their own truth. Isaiah cautions us not to believe everything we hear; ...read more

    Jesus said that a wise man will build upon the "rock" for solid foundation and the foolish man would build upon the "sand" and the foolish man house would not stand. We as "living stones" must build upon "Rock" for our spiritual house to stand.

    Introduction: Peter use the text from Psalm 34:8 as he writes to the Christian "you have tasted that the Lords is gracious" in the previous verse (2:3). Then Peter states that we have tasted the milk of Word as he refers to Jesus Christ. After believers have purged their lives from the unwholesome ...read more

  • Words That Cause Stumbling Series

     | 1,737 views

    The word "doctrines" has almost become a "dirty word" in many Christian circles. Often times when people hear a difficult teaching, or "doctrine", they become disenchanted and at times even divisive. Jesus spoke to this tendency in John 6.

    “Words that Cause Stumbling” John 6:59-64 Last week we ended with these verses from John 6:56 "He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 "As the living Father sent Me, and I live ...read more

  • Simplicity

    based on 8 ratings
     | 1,374 views

    From all indications Paul was a brilliant scholar and could have overwhelmed his listeners with intellectual arguments, but he shared the simple message of Jesus Christ by allowing the Holy Spirit to guide his words.

    THOUGHTS ABOUT THE PASSAGE: One man who was on the path of true simplicity was, according to the Talmud, a certain Rabbi Zusya. He once said, “In the coming world, they will not ask me: “Why were you not Moses?” They will ask me, “Why were you not Zusya?” (Reader’s Digest, March, 1980). In ...read more

     | 5,563 views

    God’s wrath has been revealed throughout history. It is being revealed right now. Why does God show us some demonstrations of his wrath in history? To warn us. To teach us that one day God is going to judge sin.

    INTRODUCTION I heard about a pastor after he would preach a man would say to him, “Pastor, that was a warm message today.” or the man would say, “Pastor, that was a warm sermon” or he would sometimes say, “I appreciate those warm words.” One day the preacher ...read more

    The Church Jesus Built... I. It has significant stones II. It has regal priests

    Easter 5 I Peter 2:4-10 How long does it take to build a church from scratch? I guess that depends on what our definition of the word “church” is. Maybe you’ve never really thought about it, but we use the word “church” in a lot of different ways. “Church” can be a verb, something we do. For ...read more

    When Jesus decided we were worth dying for, there were many caught in the crossfire.

    “Worth Dying For” John 15:13 Remembrance Day Service Today is a day that needs little help in terms of explanation or description.

    Live Like A Rock Star (Not like a Rolling Stone, but like the Living Stone.)

    Screaming fans. Fat paychecks. Private jets. Caribbean villas. Roadies and personal assistants ready to serve you hand and foot. That’s my impression of what life must be like for a rock star.
