Lessons From The Luckiest Man Who Ever Lived

All right, I want to put a couple of pictures up there, and this first one is a woman named Mavis Wanczyk and last August she won the Powerball jackpot, as you can see, 750 million dollars. How many of you guys would like just a little bit of that luck to rub off on you? You’re thinking, yes. Now, I want to show you one more picture in just a second, and this woman didn’t win nearly as much money, but…

Eat the Little Book

Thank you very much. You always have to kind of live up to the introduction, but you left something out. I also sell watches out of the trunk of my car. I’m so happy to see you. I actually found myself saying last night I’m so glad to be home because this is very much like home to me. I speak East County. I see the sign and I say “ham-a-shaw,” (for Jamacha), that is “ham-a-shaw.” That is not like…

Mothers Day 2018

Nitsa: Well good morning! It’s Mother’s Day, and ladies, you guys are being honored for all that you do, all that you’ve done, and all that you will continue to do; because no matter what place in life you are, we can agree that a mom’s job is never done. It just changes with time. You know, before I was a parent, the picture in my mind I had of being a mom was a little unrealistic. It was more…

The Decisions We Make Make Us

Go with me in your Bible if you would to James chapter one and I’m going to continue a series that I’ve been going through entitled “12 Scriptures That’ll Set on Fire the Course of Your Life.” And these are not Scriptures that I picked routinely, these are Scriptures that have affected my life, that have given me the ability to live differently. Now all of us in here at one time in our life, well, we have pivotal times in our…

Why it’s Better to Seek Blessedness Than Happiness

On January 28, 1986, early in the morning, the space shuttle Challenger lifted off from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and within 73 seconds it blew up. Millions of Americans watched it on live TV. All 7 astronauts were killed. The space shuttle program was shut down for 2-1/2 years. Right after the explosion, 28 surface ships and 33 aircraft scoured the area trying to find parts from the Challenger so they could reconstruct it and figure…
JOB

JOB

Go ahead and turn in your Bibles to the Book of Job. This morning I want to talk about suffering. Yeah, woo! (laughter) You know, suffering is not something that we spend a whole lot of time talking about; it’s not something that we’re particularly good at, and one of the reasons is because we live in the most comfortable time in history. I graduated with my bachelor’s in history, so I’ve done a little bit of studying other cultures…

The Lord Acts While We Wait

Today we’re going to continue a series that I started a while back entitled, “12 Scriptures that will Set on Fire the Course of your Life.” And what I mean by that is if you embrace these 12 scriptures and try to live accordingly, you’ll live life differently. Your life will be set on a firm foundation. I want to begin today by reading a few scriptures that are very familiar to all of you. You’re not a Christian very…

The Road to Life | Easter 2018

Mike VanMeter: Whenever the phone rings, you can get news that will change your life forever. Take Ryan here, for example. He’s just received one of those phone calls. He’s just been informed that his good friend, Tom, has been killed in a motorcycle accident. Only 25 years old and now he’s gone forever. But gone where? What happens after death? Ryan doesn’t think a lot about death. In fact, he tries to avoid thinking about it all together. But…
