    based on 7 ratings

    supposed to be, right? Not always, and not now. God doesn’t relieve us of all responsibility and do all the work for us. He empowers us, and we get started. And maybe it is a small start. A few boulders moved, a few shovels of dirt thrown to the s

    Not By Might, Not By Power Aug 3, 2008 Zechariah 4 Intro: I like to get things done. To make things happen. To accomplish something. To be “productive”. Cut a board, build a fire, assemble a shelf, paint a sanctuary. Part of it is my personality, part of it is a desire that all of us more

    There are times it’s worthwhile to figure out what Jesus "didn’t mean."

    OPENING: A woman read ahead as we were going through this text and was troubled by the phrase: "do not turn away from the one desiring to borrow from you." It wasn’t that she didn’t give to those in need... her problem was that she was giving so much away, that she barely had enough left for more

  • Beyond Jesus?

    Contributed by Jon Mackinney on Oct 24, 2003
    based on 38 ratings

    In our day, as in John’s, there were people promoting a faith beyond the faith in Jesus Christ. Is there anything worthwhile beyond Jesus?

    I wonder sometimes if the Church hasn’t become bored with Jesus. I mean, after all, there’s only so much we can know about Him; only so much praise, it seems, we can offer Him. And it’s tempting sometimes to create other messages, other goals, another focus besides this two thousand year old more

    A PERSUASION WORTH LIVING FOR. John 1:19-34 Int: Ever since the fall of man there has been a longing in the human heart. All through the record of the Bible it increases, as men and women cried out for a way of deliverance, to be free at last from the power and the reign of sin. In all of history more

  • Life Worth Living Series

    Contributed by Ron Murphy on Jan 25, 2007

    Everyone is looking for what makes life worthwhile. But a Life Worth Living is only found in Christ.

    Introduction I. One of the things that a good writer or speaker will do at the opening of his work is attempt to capture your mind. A. Now you may not agree with this assessment, and that is OK, but someone once told me, 1. “Pastor. The best part of your message is your more

  • He Didn't Throw The Clay Away

    Contributed by Jon Earls on Feb 5, 2003
    based on 315 ratings

    God wants to Redeem the pieces of broken lives. He wants to Repair those broken pieces into something worthwhile. And He wants to Refill the Vessel.

    Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 18:1-6 He was 21 years old. By all appearances he was living life to the fullest. Parties, drinking, living it up. He was young and full of live. He had a bright future ahead of him. Although this was the appearance to many, inside a war was going on. The more

  • Available For Life-Shaping Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jul 12, 2003
    based on 34 ratings

    If we want to be worthwhile, trustworthy, respected people, we must be available for life-shaping. That means to downplay disappointment, pick perceptive people, consider consequences, and accept affirmation.

    Worthwhile lives are made, not born. No one gets to get be great just by dumb luck or by the genes they inherited. Worthwhile people, trustworthy people, respected people are made. They are formed. They are shaped. Somebody has to take raw material and shape it into something more
