Stuck in the Mud

It is not uncommon for a believer to feel “stuck in the mud”. It can happen in nearly every area of our lives, from the spiritual to the practical. Perhaps you have labored tirelessly on a project only to see it flounder or even fail; perhaps you are seeking to build a relationship only to...

The Community of Hope

As I wrap up my schooling for a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, Pastor Kirk has asked me to consider some sermons on how we as the church can address mental health, how we can encourage one another in our marriages, how we can have stronger families.  This Sunday Pastor Dave will be...

Love That Conquers

I trust most of us celebrated Valentine’s Day this week by sharing with someone how much we love, appreciate, or cherish them. Maybe by a thoughtful gift, a bouquet of flowers, or by an action or deed, we simply said “I love you.” God has done the same for us, excepting this love is not...

Going for the Savior

It is not uncommon for Gloria and I to turn on the TV in the kitchen as supper is prepared. Truth be told, if it were all up to me we would be watching ESPN, but seeing that Gloria does nearly all the cooking she gets to choose the station and generally we find ourselves...

Growing in the Savior

I remember years ago when we purchased a one-acre lot and built a home ‘in the country’. It was in a development called Lincoln Lakes just north of Spring Creek Golf Course, and at that time, there were very few homes out there. The first spring we were there, my main project was to plant...

Knowing the Savior

All of us have likely experienced those times when a few words pack quite an impact and, in fact, can be life-changing. A couple come to my mind for me, like when Gloria and I said, “I do,” some 37 years ago, or when the doctor said, “It’s a boy,” at the birth of both our...

Follow Me- “Money Matters”

It was Martin Luther, the great Reformer, who first spoke of three conversions: “conversion of the heart, conversion of the mind, and conversion of the purse. Unfortunately, not all at the same time!” It is in the spirit of this quote that we proceed this week in our series “Follow Me” with a message based...

Follow Me- “We are Disciples and We Make Disciples”

I hope I am not the only person that has been told to “act your age!” Yet, there have been times when that phrase was necessarily applied because I was acting or speaking in a manner that was not very becoming. I believe that this phrase is applicable at times, not just in our ordinary...

Follow Me- “Do Not Love the World”

We continue the sermon series “Follow Me” we are going to be looking at how we follow Christ, in submission to the will of God, in a world hostile to God.  In 1 John 2:15-17, the apostle John gives a warning that we are not to love the world, or the things of the world because...

Follow Me- “We are Dependent Upon the One”
Sermons

Follow Me- “We are Dependent Upon the One”

The definition of a cliché is “a hackneyed theme”…Gee, thanks dictionary, now I have to go look up hackneyed! The definition of that word means “lacking in freshness or originality”. So a cliché is in essence a phrase/expression that is lacking in originality. That’s a fairly unappealing descriptor which should make us wonder why we...
