The Empty Tomb

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is by far the most important and controversial event in the history of mankind. That's why every person that comes in contact with the Risen Lord must make a decision; either they must reject Him or they must believe in the truth of the resurrection. By taking a look at John 20:1-8 we see serveral pieces of evidence that give proof to the fact of the resurrection. It was enough proof that it took the disciples that ran to the tomb in doubt and fear walked away with a new found belief in the power and purpose of Jesus. What difference has the empty tomb made in your life? Have you examined the evidence?

Jehovah-Jireh

Abraham had a realationship with God, but that relationship was still growing, so there would be times God would put him in situations to find out where his faith was. Those trials would reveal a persons faith, but they often also revealed to us something about God. With this trial it gives us a name that we hadn't seen in Scripture before, Jehovah-Jireh or God will provide. Abraham had waitied for 25 years for the promised child Isaac, then he had grown into a young boy, now God challenges him to bring him to Moriah to sacrifice him. In Genesis 22 we see not only something about Abraham, but we see that God left a breadcrumb that shows us a picture of the coming of His own Son. I. The Person of the Promise. (Vs. 8,14), II. The Place of the Promise. (Vs. 1-2), The Provision of the Promise. (Vs. 13-14).

The Danger of Compromise

March 19, 2018 @ 12:57 am

Many times throughout history one person has changed our course, some for better, some for worse, but each of those made decsions that decided which direction they would turn. I believe that same ability rest inside of each of us and the road forks at a place called compromise. We each have to decide what are we willing to give us, what are we willing to stand for, and at what point are we going to lay our foundation. Abraham was a man that ended up being a man of great faith, but it wasn't always that way, there were times that he slipped. In this sermon, covering chapters 12 and 16 of Genesis we look at the decisions that Abraham made and where they led him. I. His calling. (Gen. 12:1-4), II. His Compromise. (Gen. 12:6-13), III. His Consequence. (Gen. 16:1-4, 11-12)

The People that God Uses

Most people ask common prayers, such as; for family, friends, and loved ones, but there are those that pray what I would call uncommon prayers. These uncommon prayers are what brought out the subject of this sermon, they're prayers like; I just want to be closer to God, I just want God to use my life, I just want to make God happy. What Paul shares with us in Acts 26, I believe is the formula for the kind of person that God uses. 1. A Person Convicted by the Bible. (Vs. 4-12), 2. Converted by the Blood. (13-18), III. Changed by Belieiving. (Vs. 19-23).

A Burdened Heart for a Broken City

March 4, 2018 @ 6:09 am
00:0000:00

In the last 30 years everything that we used to know has changed, gone are the days of sleeping with your doors unlocked, or even letting your kids walk home from school. Even in our small towns where we though we were isolated things have simply changed. The question is what are we really doing to make a difference? What are we doing to reach our cities, communities and the world with the gospel? Or are we just complaining and criticizing others about their inaction? In order for things to change the first thing that has to happen is we have to get a burdened heart for a broken city. In this sermon from Acts 17, Paul shows us three ways in which he acheved that for the city of Athens. 1. He was a preacher that didn't surrender. (Vs. 16-18), He met a people in need of a Savior. (Vs. 19-20), 3. He made a proclamation of salvation. (Vs. 22-34).

The Banquet

All of us have been to a wedding at some point in our lifetime, and if we think hard enough we can remember one that stood out above the rest. Most weddings are joyous occasions, where two people deeply in love begin a journey that should last a lifetime. Heaven is also a place that we know has had many joyous occasions, when Enoch appeared, or Moses came home, or when Jesus returned victorious, but I believe they'll all pale in compairson to the Marriage Suppper of the Lamb. The time when the Church is finally united with Christ for all eternity, and God's ultimate plan is perfected. Rev. 19:5-9 gives us the clearest picture of that moment. In this sermon we see three things that all believers should be looking forward to; I. The Heavens Rejoice. (Vs. 5-6), II. The Bride is Robed. (Vs. 7-9) III. The Banquet is Ready. (Vs. 9) Are you prepared for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?

The Betrothed

February 19, 2018 @ 7:09 am

In the beginning God spoke everything into existance following a pattern, He called everything, "good" until He came to the relationship that man had being alone. From that He formed the union of marriage, and passed that union down to His chosen people. When the Jewish people began their religious system they also had customs, like marriage ceremonies. God would use that marriage custom as an allegory for His relationship with the Church. In this message we take a look at how the Church is currently in the betrothed period with Christ and how those customs of the Jewish wedding relate to our relationship with Christ so that we can better prepare ourselves for His coming. (I'm sorry for the sound quality on this message, something happened with the microphone, I didn't notice until I went back and listed this week. I will change to a new one for next week.)

The Bride of Christ

January 29, 2018 @ 3:30 am

The Bride of Christ is a makeup of those that have accepted Christ as their Savior, we call them the Church. As in any marriage both the bride and groom have responsibilities. As with any person there are events, people, and a background that make them who they are. This week we will look at what makes the Bride (Church) who she is. Using Ephesisans 2:18-22 we will see the church's; I. Foundation. (Vs. 18-20), II. Framing. (Vs. 21) and III. Fellowship. (Vs. 14, 22). When the Groom returns will He find you prepared for the wedding?

The Bridegroom

In the Bible the allegory of marriage is used to represent to relationship between Jesus and the Chruch. Over the next four week we will enter into a series of messages that will cover this relationship. Why is this so important? Because people have become disenchanted with the Church, thinking that it no longer is important, or that they not longer need to be part of the church to get to heaven, or be in right standing with God. Because of this I think its vital that we look at why God set up the Church and how the relationship plays out in the timeline of eterity. The first sermon covers the Bridegroom, better known to our culture as the husband. We will answer the questions from Colossians 1:18-20 of; Why is it so important to see Jesus as the Head of the Church?(Vs. 18) As well as, How did he become the Head of the Church? (Vs. 19-20) My hope is that in doing this people will be able to see the importance of the local church and then find their place in the Body of Christ so that they can glorify God through the work they do here on earth.

Digging Wells

January 22, 2018 @ 10:13 pm

To us wells are something that we don't often think to much about, or something that we throw a coin in and make a wish, but during the time of Moses they were critical to survival. The person that held a well held the ability to grow his power and influence, he basically had life giving power in his hands. The wells were also a symbol of God's providence, that God was by their side and was going to sustain them. As the Hebrew people had spent 38 years wandering in the widerness they were about to pass over into the promised land, but their troubles were far from over. The well was a promise. They needed a well, both physicall and spiritually, we too need this, you may ask why? Numbers 21 tells us; I. Because of our past troubles. (Vs. 1), II. Because of our empty bottles. (Vs. 10-11), III. Becuse of our future battles. (Vs. 21, 33). So how do we dig these wells in our Church? A. By Unity. (Vs. 16), B. By Dependence. (Vs. 16), C. By Worship. (Vs. 17), D. By Leadership. (Vs. 18).
