    based on 14 ratings
     | 5,378 views

    What to do when you find thorns choking the spiritual life out of you.

    Mark 4:3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: 4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. 5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of ...read more

  • Are You Choking?

    Contributed by Jason Smith on Sep 12, 2013
     | 5,343 views

    Too often, Christians can become so busy in their lives that they choke the word of God out of it. Too many of us are the thorny soil at times. This sermon helps us remember what our priorities should be.

    Often as Christians, we need to take a step back from our busy lives to examine where we are as Christians. We need to ask ourselves many questions: Have I been growing? Is that growth visible to others? Am I more holy this month or year than I was last year? These are all important questions we ...read more

"That’s a lot of chicks," commented the proprietor. "I ...read more

     | 6,888 views

    Which type of soil is your faith planted in? For many I am afraid that they are not planted in the good soil.

    “Parable of the Sower” Introduction It seems odd to me that all Christians respond differently to God’s Word. It is weird to me that we can all come to church and hear the same sermon and even sit in the same pew, but some take something away from it and others don’t. We all respond ...read more

    But if you concentrate, pay attention, you will all really realise that all through these years even you failed to understand the real hidden blessings in the Bible.

    As I was growing in the knowledge of Bible, whenever I came across this phrase I used to think Jesus used this phrase in a sarcastic way. But today when I read this phrase I really mean, that I had failed to understand the heart of Jesus in using this phrase. Today also many must be wondering why ...read more

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Aug 19, 2019
     | 3,420 views

    As we pass through this world on our way to heaven, witnessing should be a priority for the Christian.

    As Paul speaks about the Christian’s walk in this world, he tells us we need to walk wisely. We do this, he says, by taking advantage of every opportunity to give a verbal witness for Jesus. Why should witnessing be a priority for believers as we are living in this world? Two reasons: Reason #1: ...read more

    This sermon examines believers and churches that move away from their first love (honeymoon love).

    When my wife and I first married I received a rebuke from one of our senior adult members. I jokingly stated that we were still on our honeymoon. The way I expressed myself made it sound as if the honeymoon was coming to an end. This senior adult lady informed me that "the honeymoon should never ...read more

    Homily I’d like to share a brief word to you from God’s Word, encouraging you in your new life.
