    based on 8 ratings

    James’readers must have been amazed when he told them to count it all joy when they fall into trials. James was not kidding and explained how trials can be a friend and not a foe.

    YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING! James 1:2-11 There are times in life when you hear something that sounds so outlandish that your first remark is "You have to be kidding!"

  • Trials Expected & Conquered

    Contributed by John Gaston on May 28, 2013
    based on 7 ratings

    The worst harm that can come to us, comes when we don't expect it. Believers should never be blindsided by trials. We are going to look at why trials should be expected, that they will not destroy believers, and the secret to conquering trials.

    TRIALS EXPECTED & CONQUERED Isa. 43:1-3 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR: “SOMETIMES WE REPEAT MISTAKES” 1. Two men went to Alaska elk hunting. When the small plane came to pick them up, they wanted to load the two Elks into it. 2. The pilot said, "They’re too heavy! If we put them more

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Mar 26, 2017
    based on 11 ratings

    The disciples weren't afraid of the storm. And they weren't really afraid of Jesus. What was it that they were afraid of that day? And what did Jesus do to deal with their fear?

    I once read the story of a man who was hitch hiking on a very dark night in the middle of a storm. It was late at night and no cars were passing. The storm was fierce and the winds strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead. Suddenly, he saw a car coming towards him and stop. Without further more

  • "Changed" From The Inside Out

    Contributed by Charlie Roberts on Apr 26, 2012
    based on 8 ratings

    Pretty soon your attitude will go from can’t do anything, to can do everything and it won’t be from your doing,  but what God has done on the inside of you first. By the time that you become aware of it on the outside, He will have already wove

    Changed, from the inside out! Romans 12:1-2 MSG. 1-2.  So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best more

  • Broken Things God Uses

    Contributed by John Gaston on Oct 18, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    God has often taken broken things and made them useful again. God used a broken covenant, broken branches, and broken people to accomplish His purposes.

  • "Nicodemus Wears A White Hat”

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Mar 11, 2021

    Good cowboys wear white hats. Nicodemus was depending on his "goodness", keeping Jewish rules and his connection to Abraham. Our new American theology is not different....we want to depend on our own goodness. Jesus is not "one" way, but the only way.

    In Jesus Holy Name Lent IV March 14, 2021 Text: John 3:17,18a “Nicodemus Wears a White Hat” Who wears white hats? In the old silent movie days you always knew who the good cowboys were. They wore white hats. The bad cowboys wore back hats. That way you always knew who the more

    based on 18 ratings

    16% of Americans think of God as being critical and uncaring. Another 25% believe Him to be distant and unwilling to intercede in human affairs. But how does this contrast with the message of Isaiah?

  • Inmates Converted To Christ

    Contributed by Dennis King on Jul 21, 2018

    This touches on the inmates that convert to Christ while incarcerated and, often times, the hypocritical criticisms directed towards them.

    One thing you may find to be true is that a lot of people in the church are hypocrites.

Often, if you don't look like them, talk like them or even dress like them they throw up more
