Jesus: The Incomparable Christ

12/8/2018
More
Scientist, Skeptic and Writer Carl Sagan once said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." What would qualify as extraordinary evidence? Is there extraordinary evidence that Jesus is the most extraordinary individual in history? Is there extraordinary evidence that Jesus is in fact is the incomparable Lord of the universe? If you seek to disprove Jesus claims you will be disappointed with the skeptics. On the other hand the eyewitnesses of the resurrection left us with...

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Our Lord

12/1/2018
More
Some people think that Christianity is simply another good religion among many religions. They think that all religions teach about how to get to God… Many paths, one destination. That might be true except for one Sunday at dawn in a desolate Garden Tomb. Jesus did something which places Christianity in a category by itself: Christ arose!

How many times have you felt that you were all alone? How many times have you felt that no one cares? You feel buffeted by the storms of life, and helpless to do anything about it. Chances are sooner or later you are going to get caught in a storm. It’s just a matter of time. You bit off more than you could chew… and you know that the gale force winds are right around the corner. Got any hurricanes coming your way? Anchor deep. And the anchor you’ve been looking for is the one we’ll be...

Beneath The Cross

11/10/2018
More
Everyone responds differently to Jesus. He incites both scorn and adoration. Some fear him while others worship him. Some would attempt to dump him on the trash heap of history, while others laugh at his irrelevance to their lives. Over 2000 years have passed and Jesus remains the central figure of History. He still elicits the same dramatic responses that he received that lonely week before Passover… and how we respond to Him is absolutely critical.

Jesus Prayed for Me

10/13/2018
More
If God were to pray for you, I would imagine that his prayers would be radically different than the ones you pray for yourself. What if Jesus were to pray for you? What would he pray? We’re about to find out. The Bible calls Jesus our advocate – because He lives to speak to the Father on our behalf. You might say that right now His present profession and occupation is to intercede for us. Jesus is presently praying for me.

Jesus - Vine and Branches Discourse

10/6/2018

What if every Christian lived such a Christ like life that his character was overflowing with richness and magnificence? If you set your mind set on spiritual things you will bear rich spiritual fruit! If you want to bear fruit in this life you must abide in Jesus. If you do not abide in Jesus you will live a life of spiritual waste

The Upper Room Discourse

9/29/2018
More
It is amazing what the right environment will do for learning. The disciples were in the right environment for learning. Where was Jesus going to go? What safe haven was Jesus going to flee to that neither they nor any of the other Jews could find him? What would they do without their Rabbi? How would they function in a world without Jesus? How were they supposed to survive alone without the master to guide and teach them? They were now sufficiently motivated to learn, and Jesus was about to...

Jesus: Final Week of Turmoil

9/22/2018
More
Is America Under God's Judgment? We have stiffened our necks against the Almighty. In our schools we have abolished prayer, removed the Ten Commandments, and banned the distribution of Bibles. Israel received the Judgment of God! Jesus harshest words were directed against the religious leaders of the nation. If Jesus were preaching today, how would we respond? Would we kneel in repentance to the Savior, or would we become stiff-necked like the Pharisees and plot his death. Jesus turned the...

Jesus: The Triumphal Entry

9/8/2018
More
Jerusalem; it is the Passover AD 33. It is the most important feast of the Jews. Over 250 thousand lambs will be slain to commemorate Israel’s deliverance and salvation from Egypt. Today Jesus will enter Jerusalem and officially present himself to the nation as the King of the Jews for the final time. Today would be the day they must choose their Messiah. The final week of Christ's earthly life was the defining moment in the History of every life. We call it Passion Week. As you hear his...

Jesus - The Kingdom Rejected

9/1/2018
More
Today we’re going to talk about a mistake of another kind. This is not any ordinary mistake… this is a mistake of the most serious kind. Not just an accidental, oops, excuse me mistake, but the willful choice of hardened hearts to knowingly choose against God. We don’t call that an ordinary mistake, we call that sin. Intentional, defiant sin. What I am talking about, of course, is the rejection of Jesus Christ by his own people.

Jesus offers the Kingdom

8/25/2018
More
Significant movements begin from the bottom up, not the top down. Truly important changes in culture begin not from officials or celebrities, but through ordinary people: the little platoons. Every person can and should seek to make a difference in his or her corner of the world. Jesus initiated a grass roots movement. The Sadducees had rejected him at the very beginning of His ministry. The Pharisees followed suit within months. With the leadership of the nation against Him, Jesus sent his...

Jesus: Teacher Extraordinaire

8/11/2018
More
If you describe your life incorrectly, in the final analysis, you will be holding the short end of the stick. Life will deceive you. C.S. Lewis once said, “We are half-hearted creatures, fooling with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us.” That’s why Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount – so that we could rethink the way we describe our lives and reorient the way we live them.

Jesus - Disciple Maker

8/4/2018
More
Jesus lived in a deeply religious culture that valued biblical understanding more than anything else. Jesus spent his ministry among people who knew Scripture by memory, who debated its application with enthusiasm. To become a great rabbi was the highest goal possible; and just to be a disciple of a famous rabbi was an honor. Even to the present day, Judaism retains a tradition of discipleship. When Jewish rabbis are ordained, they are commissioned to "Raise up many disciples".

Jesus: Lord of the Sabbath

7/28/2018
More
Jesus observed the Sabbath. The Sabbath is one of the holiest Jewish institutions. It is a solemn covenant between God and Israel. The Sabbath was meant to be a day of blessing and Joy. It guaranteed that a worker would get at least one day off. It assured that the family would spend one whole day together. But its main purpose was for a day of worship.

Jesus: The Great Physician

7/21/2018
More
Today we are going to survey the miracle working life of Jesus the Great Physician. Jesus was unusual. He could work miracles at will. If he decided that someone needed healing, Jesus would heal him without medicine. If he wanted to cast out a demon it only took a word. If he challenged nature, he could halt a storm in its tracks as effortlessly as flipping a light switch. He could even raise the dead. Jesus is unique – simply because He’s the Lord, the Creator of heaven an earth.

Jesus: Rejected by His Own

7/14/2018
More
Every so often I return to the town where I grew up. But there’s a funny thing that happens when you go back… They still remember how you used to be 30 years ago. Something similar happened to Jesus. Jesus lived a fairly uneventful childhood. He never married. He never did a miracle until he was 30. And from the sound of this passage he never really was into preaching or teaching in his hometown, because they seemed surprised at his newfound ability. In fact Jesus was simply known to them as...

Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

7/7/2018
More
John 4 God is not interested in popularity. If you or I were God, we might have created a strategy of popularity. It might be something like this: First you must get in good with those who have the influence in society. Second, you must not be too demanding of your followers nor too radical in your message. Third: Regardless of your second point, don’t ever make the mistake of being too inclusive. Jesus did none of these things. He had no interest in power or popularity. Jesus not only...

You Must Be Born Again

6/23/2018
More
Jesus had just cleansed the temple. The Sadducee Priests would have been incensed, because this was a direct strike against them and their power and wealth. The Pharisees were probably somewhat more receptive to what Jesus had done. Jesus was still relatively new to the Jewish scene, and they were curious. Perhaps Nicodemus was sent by the Pharisees to find out more about this new teacher. If Jesus was the Messiah, and was going to bring the coming Kingdom, they wanted to know about it....
