New Sermon – I AM

April 6, 2017

4 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 […]

New Sermon – Survey of Joshua

May 18, 2015

0 Comments

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 […]

I, Slave – New Sermon Available!

February 18, 2013

0 Comments

We are all slaves.  Does this sound odd to you?  In Romans 6:15-19 our Lord teaches us this very thing.  We are slaves to the sins we choose to obey.  Because of the nature of substance abuse, many struggling with addictions know this better than others, but that doesn’t mean this passage applies only to […]

New Sermon – The False Convert

September 17, 2012

0 Comments

Matthew 7:21-23 isn’t usually framed and put on the wall above the couch, and for obvious reasons… it’s a bit disturbing!  Jesus made it extremely clear that many, many people who believe themselves to be saved are deceived and headed for eternal damnation.  Each and every one of us believes this passage must be referring […]

New Audio Sermon – Jeremiah 29:11

August 6, 2012

0 Comments

This particular Bible verse is one that countless Christians have displayed on their walls and desks as a daily personal encouragement.  But if we stop and think about it, the modern practice of flipping through the bible, selecting what we find to be an encouragement, and displaying it under the assurance that it applies to […]

New Audio Sermon – Psalm 130

July 17, 2012

0 Comments

It is called a “Psalm of Ascent”.  The people of Israel sang this song as they went up to the temple in Jerusalem to offer sacrifices and seek the forgiveness of sins from the Lord.  But does this Psalm have anything to say to us in the modern world?  Today, we are as guilty of […]

WOW! A Must Listen for Every SBC Pastor…

May 18, 2012

0 Comments

I’m not quite sure how to describe this teaching other than to say it is one of the most eye-opening (and frightening) talks I’ve heard in quite some time.  It is a history of the seeker-friendly and Purpose Driven movements.  When I say “history”, that is exactly what I mean.  Sources are quoted, reference material […]
