Living Victoriously In A Crooked World

The Importance of Church Attendance

Open your Bibles or find in your electronic device Hebrews, Chapter 10. First of all, I’d like to take a journey back in time. It is 1300 BC and God has miraculously brought the Israelites out of Egypt, delivered them from slavery, gotten rid of Pharaoh’s army that had come to destroy them in the Red Sea, and now the Lord has guided them to the foot of Mt. Sinai in the wilderness. The Sinai Wilderness is what we call…
Being-True

Being True To Yourself

The message today is titled “Being True to Yourself.” How many of you guys would like to be true to yourself? How many of you think that is a good thing? We’re going to talk about what does that mean and how do you do it. I want to start off with a story. We had a family that attended here some years ago. They were friends with David and I. And the husband particularly was active and got involved…
Our_Weakness

Our Weakness Releases God’s Strength

In 2 Corinthians, chapter 12, Paul tells us that he had a difficulty in his life. There was something in his life that caused living to be a little harder. We don’t know what that was. He called it a “thorn in the flesh.” Most people that I’ve read believe that it was some kind of physical problem. He either had malaria… he spent a lot of time in what we call Turkey and there was a lot of swamp…

So, I like to laugh, and I think you guys know that. One thing that I do a lot when I do sermon prep, I go online and look up funny things. You guys ever watch that show Kids Say the Darndest Things?

4 Questions of Your Heart

Let me start off by saying that all people are different but all people are the same. You and I are different but we’re the same. We’re really different in just the small things: ages, sex, race, fashions, life experiences. So, we’re different in those areas but we’re the same in the big areas because our Creator created each one of us in His own image. And so we all want the same things. We’re all asking the same questions…

Engaging the Culture

I’m going to ask you to raise your hand to a question, and a lot of times when we ask a question and ask you to raise your hands, like “Who’s breathing?” and like 15 people raise their hands. So listen, I want you to actually raise your hands if this applies to you, okay? How many of you have started coming to this church within the last 2 years? Raise your hand up high. Let me just get kind…

Prayer Will Move Mountains

All right, this morning, we’re going to continue a series I’ve been working on called “12 Scriptures That’ll Set on Fire the Course of Your Life.” That’s from a verse in Hebrews. Really what I’m saying is 12 scriptures that if you embrace them, you memorize them, and you put what the scriptures are exhorting you to do, if you put what they’re exhorting you to do, if you practice that in your life, it’s going to put you in…

Night At The Hard Rock Hotel

Good morning everybody. You guys, I love saying this, and maybe I say it every time I preach, but Sunday needs to be the start of our week. You guys know that? Sometimes we treat Sunday as the end of our week. Like, we make it to Sunday, but you know. Changing the way you see things affects a lot, doesn’t it? And when you look at Sunday as the start of our weeks then all of a sudden we…

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…
