Mary’s Song

Series: Preacher: Date: December 14, 1997 Scripture Reference: Luke 1:46-55

The songs of Zechariah, Mary, the angels, and Simeon were very different than any other Jewish religious songs of their day. I imagine the songs of this period were all in minor keys to reflect the sadness of these people. There were no happy songs in these days because these people had very little to […]

Zechariah’s Song

Series: Preacher: Date: December 7, 1997 Scripture Reference: Luke 1:57-80

Music has been a popular part of the celebration of our Lord’s birth for a long time, a VERY long time! Scripture records that the central characters in the Christmas story almost instantly responded to the events surrounding the birth of our Savior with songs. Perhaps the age of these songs is the characteristic that […]

Sense and Nonsense About Spiritual Gifts

Series: Preacher: Date: November 30, 1997 Scripture Reference: 1 Corinthians 12

Some leaders in the church at Corinth were teaching a great deal of “nonsense” advice on the subject of spiritual gifts. But their teaching contained just enough “sense” to make it appear authoritative. And because of this, many Christians there were believing these cleverly disguised false teachings and were applying them to their lives. These […]

Buildng the Body With an Attitude of Gratitude

Series: Preacher: Date: November 23, 1997 Scripture Reference: Colossians 3:15-17

Attitude can have an incredible impact on our lives. The longer I live the more I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond. And because this is true, I believe that the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my […]

Building the Body by Taming the Tongue

Series: Preacher: Date: November 9, 1997 Scripture Reference: James 3:1-12

Throughout the Bible, the spoken word is taken very seriously. In the old days, the ancient Hebrews regarded these little oral sounds in utterly concrete terms. They believed that to speak a word was to create a unit of energy with powers all its own, and then let this loose into the world. For example, […]

The Church…Where One Anothering Happens

Series: Preacher: Date: November 2, 1997 Scripture Reference: Acts 2:42-47, 4:32-35

Acts 2, Acts 4 describes the early church….a group of Christians who were known for the Christlike way in which they treated one another. If the churches of today are to enjoy “church” in the fullest sense of the word they must be places where “one-anothering” happens. The various qualities of one-anothering that combine to […]

Its Not ONLY Money

Series: -- Preacher: Date: October 26, 1997 Scripture Reference: Matthew 6:19-21

This week as I was studying for this stewardship sermon, one cliché that kept coming into my mind was the popular saying, “It’s only money”. When you think about it, the three words that make up this cliché do reflect a philosophy that is common in our communities these days. So many of us view […]

Salvation – What it isnt and What it is

Series: Preacher: Date: October 19, 1997 Scripture Reference: Romans 3:10-12, 20-25

God made it simple for a person to become a Christian. But by using vague clichés and by embracing misconceptions of the steps one must take to become a Christian, some make salvation seem to be something that is difficult…even complex. Some infer that becoming a Christian is the result of a person’s having done […]

Jesus Christ — the Man that is Different

Series: Preacher: Date: October 12, 1997 Scripture Reference: Hebrews 1:1-4

Last week we looked at the authority of scripture…. …this week we look at our belief about Jesus Christ. It is important to note that these two essentials are intertwined. The Bible from beginning to end is the written record of God pursuing a relationship with mankind. So the love of Jesus can be felt […]

The Bible….The Book That is Different

Series: Preacher: Date: October 5, 1997 Scripture Reference: 2 Timothy 2:15,3:15-17, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:19-21

Our Lord and Savior, our Superior in the chain of command, has given us a mission. We call it the GREAT COMMISSION. Remember the commanding words Jesus spoke as He was ascending to heaven while the disciples looked on: “All authority has been given me in heaven and earth. Therefore, go to all peoples everywhere […]
