  • An Unconventional Birth

    Contributed by Dr. Jonathan L Vorce on Dec 22, 2017
    based on 3 ratings

    The birth of Jesus is a beautiful picture of God sending His Son to this earth to take on the form of man and become the sacrificial lamb that would satisfy the requirements of the law for all of eternity. But His birth was more than that!

    Luke 15:1-10 God’s Unconventional Reach Have you ever lost anything? It’s really irritating, isn’t it? Losing car keys, losing your wallet, losing your cell phone. They make devices to ping all these things, but I’m sure I would probably lose that, too! Luke chapter 15 is all about lost things, more

  • An Unconventional Birth Day Series

    Contributed by Tim Smith on Mar 17, 2011

    There was another unconventional birth 2000 years ago. In stark contrast to the intensely glittered and gold portrayal through which many of us look at Christmas today, Jesus ended up being born in a cave that served as a stable because there was no room

    Following the Leading of the Spirit Acts 8:26-40 - Have you ever felt that you failed as a witness for Christ? Ever felt that God was calling you to do something but you chose to not listen to His voice? - This morning, let us discuss the importance of following the Spirit of God - Let us more

  • Some Unconventional Wisdom About Anger Series

    Contributed by Pat Damiani on Dec 9, 2007
    based on 3 ratings

    37th in a series from Ephesians. The "conventional wisdom" is that this passage deals with our individual anger. But Paul seems to have something else in mind here.

    This week I ran into what was billed as a “Conventional Wisdom IQ Test”. The idea is to see how many of the sayings of conventional wisdom that one can complete. The original test had 20 questions, but for time’s sake let’s see how well we can do on just 10 of them: 1. If it’s not broken.... more

  • Have Your Way

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Aug 31, 2015
    based on 4 ratings

    Just step aside, and allow God to take over. Let go and let God! Give up your gloom and doom, and put your future in God's hands. That worry that creases your brow and reminds you continually just how horrible your situation is can be turned into a smile.

    Opening illustration: Consider this scenario, the building all around you is burning. You are too far up to jump, because landing on the ground would surely kill you. The flames and smoke have forced you out of the window and onto the ledge. You are hanging onto the ledge to avoid the flames and more

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Feb 7, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    This was the Lord of Host's battle, and His victory. The strategy was unconventional, but effective, and a reminder of the holy wrath of God upon wickedness.

    Contributed by John Lowe on Apr 21, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Paul’s thanksgiving becomes unconventional because of his insertion of “God”: he is giving a genuine thanks to the one true God, not making a casual reference to whatever the gods were in Thessalonica, at the time.

    4/8/18 Tom Lowe Lesson 2: THANKSGIVING FOR THEIR FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE (1Th 1:2-4) Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:2-4 (NIV) 2 We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. 3 We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor more

  • His Frustrating Ways Series

    Contributed by Joel Smith on Sep 25, 2008
    based on 1 rating

    God’s ways are usually more frustrating than mysterious.

    Back in 2000, my friend Dan and I were called and hired as pastors of Wellspring Community Church, a fellowship that we started from scratch. Dan and I began the process as friends, but we’d never actually worked together. At first, all was well as we concentrated on getting the facilities ready more
