Testing God

Exodus 17:1-7 The Old and New Testaments speak to God’s relationship to God’s people.  The Old Testament is more of a reference to a people that knew they were chosen by God and recognized by other nations as being God’s people.  The New Testament speak to a people who have chosen to believe in the…

The Soul Feast

Psalm 63:1 As I listened for the message from the Lord, I found a song in the hymnal that was the perfect introductory prayer.  But as the sermon took shape, the words of that song seemed to fit better as the spiritual segue from one part of the sermon points to the others.  It’s amazing…

Abundance of Jobs; Scarcity of Workers

Matthew 9:35-38 For the first time in a long time, there is an abundance of jobs and enough people to fill them.  With the right amount of skills and abilities, someone has a good chance of finding employment.  “For the first time in half a year, Texas’ jobless rate declined last month, amid a promising…

Do You Love Jesus? Pt. 2

John 14:15-21 (NIV2011) – “If you love me, keep my commands.” Christ has established that loving Him and keeping His commandments are essential to being a true disciple of Christ.  The meaning of this phrase “If you love me” usually implies that the “other” party in a relationship needs some tangible proof of your affection. …

Do You Love Me? Pt. 1

John 14:15-21 (NIV2011) 15  “If you love me, keep my commands.” The disciples’ love for Christ is revealed in their obeying His commands            (cf. vv. 21, 23; 1 John 2:3; 3:22, 24; 5:3). Christ has set the pattern of love and obedience (John 14:31); and His disciples are expected to follow (13:15-16).¹ The meaning of…

COURTING THE ENEMY

John 10:1-10; Judges 16; Hebrews 11:32 Courting the enemy is perhaps a strange sermon title for communion Sunday but I am reminded too often that sometimes we go through the routine and fail to acknowledge the sacredness of the act itself.  It has little impact on us.  It is merely first Sunday again. As I read…

Am I a Witness to the Resurrection?

Acts 1:14a; 22-32 The Testimony of the ancients Luke tells of King David’s testimony to the resurrection of Jesus was based on a promise made to him by God that one of his descendants would sit on the throne. In Romans 1:1-3, we see that Jesus is of the House of David according to the…

DID I DO THAT?

I John 1: 5 – 10 “God is light and in Him there is no darkness.”  I have entitled this sermon “Did I Do That?”  If you recognize that little phrase, you will see that it came from Steve Urkle and it is said in this manner, “Did I do that?”  Steve was always doing…

Saturated in Christ

Saturated in Christ

Psalm 133:1-3 Introduction There is a story told by Pastor E.V. Hill that some eggs were hatching and one little chick stuck its head out, looked around and said “Nope, I am not coming out.” As other eggs cracked and the other little chicks stuck their heads out, they pecked until the eggs shell was…

One Bread, One Body

One Bread, One Body

1 Corinthians 10:16-18 (Read Psalm 107) Introduction We are privileged to read a portion of this first letter written to the church at Corinth by the Apostle Paul. The preface to this passage speaks of the children of Israel who had a history of taking on the ways of the world around them and forgetting…
