  • Night Calls - A Call To Serve Series

    Contributed by Jerry Flury on Jan 24, 2010
    based on 14 ratings

    God often deals with us at night. In the deepest night God brings Israel out of Egypt. At night God wrestles with Jacob. At midnight God looses Peter’s chains. At night Paul hears the Macedonian call. In the middle of the night God calls Samuel to serve.

    Night Calls – Part One: “A Call to Serve” 1 Samuel 3:1-21 Introduction: God’s word declares that “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” As such we often equate times of trouble, of difficulty, of spiritual lows with the night. We speak of the thief coming in the night; of death stalking more

  • Awesome God (Everpresent)

    Contributed by Spencer Homan on Dec 10, 2007
    based on 9 ratings

    This is a sermon that focuses on just how close God really is.

    OT: Isaiah 1:10-20 NT: Luke 12:35-40 Where is God? Is He far… far way? Or is He perhaps closer than we /like\ to think. Hearing the words of Jesus in our scripture today, we learn that indeed HE is not all that far away. Therefore, we must be diligent. We must be prepared. The more

  • Heaven Is ... (Part 1)

    Contributed by T.j. Conwell on Jun 9, 2014

    The importance of seeing Heaven through the eyes of Christ is too good to miss! Christians need to dispel the rumors and get down to what IS, and isn't, going to be in Heaven straight from God's word.

    Heaven is … (Part 1) Revelation, Part 31, Revelation 19:11 – 21:27 Ω Introduction - Today gives us 7 things to see in the final days of this historic battle -- Good vs. evil began on the Earth in the Garden of Eden -- Today’s scripture gives us the more

  • The Coming Of The Lord

    Contributed by Bill Butsko on Nov 12, 2010
    based on 2 ratings

    If Jesus came once, why does He want to come again?

    Text: “…the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2). What does that Scripture mean to you? What is the day of the Lord? What does the word “thief” mean in this Scripture? Didn’t Jesus already come into the world as a baby? more

  • What Happens When

    Contributed by Monty Newton on May 30, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    God is a God who comes down to us... to move us out.

    Title: What Happens When the “Self” Meets God? (The self-reliant, the self-important, and the self-centered) Text: Genesis 11:1-9 Thesis: God is a God who comes down to us… to move us out! Introduction Last weekend Bonnie and I were in Charlotte, North Carolina visiting Bonnie’s parents. more

  • Developing A Prayer-Directed Spirit

    Contributed by Brad Bailey on Aug 9, 2004
    based on 14 ratings

    Preparing our hearts through prayer for combat with evil

    As we gather this morning we do so at a unique time in our lives.. a time in which our nation is preparing for war… perhaps a war that will unfold in a more drawn out manner… but still with a call to ‘readiness’ that is fitting of war. The National Guard has been called up. Reserves… possible more

  • A Talent For The Ridiculous! Series

    Contributed by David Smith on Apr 30, 2012

    We’ve reached a familiar story in the book of Matthew – the parable of the talents.

    It’s a parable I’ve known since my youth - one I am quite familiar with – and having been in this parish almost 21 years now, it’s one that I am reaching for the 7th time even since I’ve been here, which is why it is all the more astounding that I’ve never more

  • The Theory Of The Thief

    Contributed by Larry Wolfe on Jul 6, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    the thief in prophecy analyzed

    THE THEORY OF ’THE THIEF’ Just as in many other theories, prophecy ’scholars’ have gone astray due to faulty interpretations of specific texts of Scripture. One of these false interpretations is ’THE THIEF’ mentioned in distinct more

  • Meanwhile...

    Contributed by Monty Newton on Nov 19, 2012

    Meanwhile, as we live in between what was and what will be, we live good and peaceful lives.

    Despite the increasingly chaotic global landscape and a growing sense of doom and even an impending apocalypse… I suspect relatively few are associating an apocalypse with the Second Coming of Christ. Few are living prepared for that event which II Peter 3:10 says will be like a thief coming more

  • Getting Ready For The Second Coming Series

    Contributed by Brian Bill on Mar 19, 2003
    based on 60 ratings

    We’re not to get caught up in date setting but instead are to be ready at all times to meet the Lord because He will come like a thief in the night. In the meantime, we’re to cultivate faith, love, and hope.

    Getting Ready for the Second Coming [Drama: “Security Check”] I can’t imagine what that would be like when the Book of Life is opened and your name is nowhere to be found! The feelings of regret, loneliness, and outright alarm would be devastating. And that would be nothing like the eternal more

  • Identity Theft Prevention

    based on 57 ratings

    God has given to us a wonderful identity in Christ; but the Accuser will attack our thinking and try to rob us of the full realization of it.

    Identity Theft Prevention Luke 3:21-4:41[1] 1-9-05 Intro This morning I want to talk with you about “Identity Theft”. According to the Federal Trade Commission, last year alone, approximately 10 million Americans were victims of identity theft. The cost was nearly $ 50 billion.[2] There more

  • Payback

    Contributed by Thomas Swope on Mar 26, 2018

    A study in the book of Exodus 22: 1 – 31

    Exodus 22: 1 – 31 Payback 22 “If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and slaughters it or sells it, he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep. 2 If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. 3 If the sun has more

  • Paying The Bills

    Contributed by Ethan Muse on Apr 5, 2004
    based on 23 ratings

    Discover Satan’s strategy to cause every Christian to be lost in the end.

    This is my adaptation of a sermon by Pastor Henry Wright If you have your Bibles this morning, turn with me once again to the text that was read for our scripture reading this morning. Matthew 28:18-20, reading from the New American Standard Bible, says this: “And Jesus came up and spoke to more

  • Running On Empty Series

    Contributed by Pat Damiani on Aug 27, 2014

    Fifth in this series. The Parable of the Ten Virgins shows that I cannot live on someone else's oil.

    I still remember my first date with Mary. I know that she was really impressed when I picked her up in my banana yellow Ford Pinto, especially since it was the middle of summer and that car had no air conditioning – unless you call rolling down both windows and driving as fast as that car more

  • The Day Of The Lord

    Contributed by Mark Opperman on May 29, 2013

    The Day of the Lord is coming, but if our faith is in Christ, we will escape the wrath of God that will be poured out at that time. In the meantime, we are called to trust Him, live out our faith, encourage one another, and invite people to Jesus.

    The Day of the Lord 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor more
