New Sermon – An Unnatural Prayer

December 11, 2018

1 Comment

We are all born with a sinful nature, and while God has rebuilt the heart and affections of His people, we still all struggle with that old sinful side at the same time.  Because of this, sometimes things such as prayer can be a challenge.  Are we praying our will, or God’s will?  Are we […]

I’ve been negligent in posting new content here lately, so I have resolved to add a few new things this week. This first item is a sermon about discernment, something we are all in dire need of these days! Sometimes figuring out truth from error is easy, but other times it can be a bit […]

New Sermon – Prayer for the Church

December 17, 2017

0 Comments

Do you pray for those in your church?  What are your specific requests?  Healing? Financial relief? Maybe for strained relationships?  While there’s nothing wrong with these prayers at all, It’s interesting to note that when Paul prayed for those in the church he prayed for something much different. So is there something that we might […]

New Sermon – Jesus is Higher

December 17, 2017

1 Comment

It’s been a while since I posted any of my sermons, so I thought today would be a good chance to get at least two of them out.  This one explores John 7:14-24 where we find Jesus laying out a few pieces of His identity and authority.  He makes it quite clear that while mankind […]

New Sermon – I AM

April 6, 2017

5 Comments

What’s in a name?  If your name is “I AM”, a lot!  God’s name holds profound meaning!  Unlike American names, His name is representative of who He is and what He is like.  We in the West don’t think like that as the meanings behind our names have mostly faded into obscurity, but we should […]

New Sermon – Approaching Advent (or Christmas)

December 9, 2016

2 Comments

How should we be approaching this Christmas or Advent season?  Should we try to find a new, fun and trendy way to take it all in or is there maybe an old-fashioned biblical way to celebrate the birth of the great Rescuer?  This sermon discusses how our forefathers in the faith looked toward their redeemer […]

A Christmas Look at Jesus

December 21, 2015

0 Comments

Often, around this time of year we hear so much about the baby Jesus and His birth that we begin to gloss over the whole thing a bit.  Veteran Christians are especially prone to this because we’ve celebrated Christmas so many times and heard so many sermons it can all be a bit redundant by […]

Contemplative prayer, Centering Prayer or….

November 16, 2015

0 Comments

If you haven’t noticed, there seems to be increasing attention on some of the more ancient prayer practices lately.  Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and meditation are all being discussed now with Christian application in mind.  While some of the authors promoting these ideas (Merton, Keating, etc.) may have some fine-sounding things to say regarding the […]

A while back I gave a sermon that was a snapshot of the entire book of Joshua.  It covers what to keep in mind when reading the book, discusses some of the more famous chapters, and also looks at how its’ themes relate to us today.  If you’re studying the book of Joshua, or getting […]

Those Lousy Gibeonites!

November 16, 2014

1 Comment

So Joshua and company are tricked by some lying Gibeonites who pretend to be from afar off, but are really from only a few miles away (see Joshua 9).  God had put the Gibeonites on the “to be conquered list” as Israel swept across the promised land but things didn’t quite work out that way.  […]

How to Pray – New Sermon Available!

April 25, 2013

0 Comments

How should we pray?  Well, in Matthew 6:5-15 God in human flesh (that is, God incarnate – Jesus Christ) teaches us.  Many professing Christians recoil at the idea of being taught how to pray, as they feel any instruction will detract from their sincerity and freedom of expression.  Others feel they should pray, but either […]
