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…

How to be Content

Go to your Bibles to the book of Philippians, if you will. Today we’re going to continue the series that I started a few weeks ago called, “12 Scriptures That Will Set on Fire the Course of Your Life.” And if you remember these scriptures, they are not passages that I randomly picked. They are scriptures that at some point in my life I committed myself to because something happened in my life where I knew I needed some help.…

Go to the book of Lamentations, however you want to get there, turn your device on or turn in your Bible. The book of Lamentations was written by the prophet Jeremiah, and the word lamentation means “to cry out” to God. The prophet Jeremiah wrote this book soon after the Babylonians had destroyed Jerusalem, leveled it, broke down the walls, ransacked the temple, took all the treasures out of the temple, and Jeremiah had seen this. King Zedekiah was the…

12 Scriptures That Will Set On Fire the Course of Your Life

Today I’m going to be starting a 12-part series entitled, “12 Scriptures That Will Set on Fire the Course of Your Life.” I’m told by many people that that’s the longest title of any series or sermon that’s ever been preached. I decided to do this when Wes Fulkerson… well, I’ve had this information on my desk for about 2 and a half years. I really feel like the Lord wanted me to put this into a book that people…

Work is a Gift

As we look forward to 2018… it is amazing in just a couple of years it will be 2020. I remember Y2K. Do you guys remember that? All the hysteria. Good heavens. But as all of us look to 2018, one dominant part of 2018 for all of us is we’re going to be working. W-O-R-K. Work. It is a big part of what we are going to do. When most Americans talk about work, most people talk about work…

Christmas Eve 2017

Dave: What we’re going to do now is we’re going to read through the Christmas story. The birth of Jesus. Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” 29 But…
The Christmas Miracle

The Christmas Miracle

I’m going to ask for two volunteers who like to win things, alright? But, you have to know something about the Bible. Alright, come up here Dan. What do you mean you already know all the answers? You have the outline? But you don’t have the answers. You know the answers? Come up here, oh ye, pride come before a fall, young man. Stand right here. You sure you know them? (Dan answers: “I’m absolutely sure I know them”). OK,…

Prayer and the Overcoming Life

Go to Acts chapter 12. The scripture that we’re going to look at today deals with a desperate time in the early church in Jerusalem. Up to this point, thousands of people have gotten saved. Thousands of Jews have converted to Christianity; they’ve given their life to Jesus. And believe me, this has not gone unnoticed by the Jewish religious leaders. So, the more Christians, the more Jews who get saved, the more threatened these Jewish leaders become, and then…

Four Truths About Evangelism

Today we’re going to look at a familiar story in the Bible. As a matter of fact, if you were raised in a Christian church this was one of the first stories you heard. It’s a story about Zaccheus. You probably learned a little song about him. That he climbed up in a Sycamore tree. I think kids like this story because kids like to climb trees. Interestingly Zaccheus’ name means “pure and righteous” in Hebrew and when Jesus met…

Jesus is Passing By

Luke Chapter 18. And if I forget to tell you, we’re going to read one passage now and then later on in the message, we’re going to come back and read some more verses out of Luke 18. So, when I’m done, hold on to that. As Jesus was approaching Jericho, a blind man (whose name was Bartimaeus) was sitting by the road begging. Now hearing a crowd going by, he began to inquire what this was. They told him…

Three Hindrances to Personal Revival

Please turn with me to 2 Chronicles 24. Today we’re going to look at King Joash. He’s a very interesting character. He’s a sad character. His rule started out with such great promise and then just belly flopped. God obviously had a plan for him. God wanted to use him to bring revival to Jerusalem and the kingdom of Judah, but it never happened. First a little background. Ahaziah, his father, was only king for one year. He was 22…
