A World of Difference

Text: I John 2 (15) 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. BR: I John 2 (12-19) INTRO: John made an incredible statement in this text. I. What is ‘the World’? The Greek word translated ‘world’ is KOSMOS. Some English versions use another word, aion’ which means ‘the age’. The Classical Greek version of kosmos implied two things; Harmonious Order Embellishment []

Appetites

Text: Proverbs 27 (7) “The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.” BR: Numbers 21 4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. 5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there []

The Seed of Greatness

TEXT: Gal. 3 (16) “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ” INTRO: Everyone seeks greatness, as such. Who wants to be a failure? Downtrodden? Yet TRUE greatness is defined by God, which man cannot attain to.; not without Christ. During the creation process, the bible says in Genesis Chapter One 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, []

The Pursuit of Happiness

Well, here’s the outline for the sermon, but there was WAY much more said to bring it all together, especially the part all about Jesus and His fulfillment through obeying the will of the Father. I hope it still makes some sense to you. (MCK)   Text: Ps. 144 (15) ” Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is thatpeople, whose God is the LORD.” INTRO: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by []

A Jesus Like That

TEXT: Heb. 4 (15) 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. BR: Heb. 4 (11-16) INTRO: Some notable points in the bible reading; We want to enter into the rest of God, and must labor to do so. This isn’t saying we’re saved by working for it, but it takes work to stay right and keep unbelief away. []

Team Spirit

Text: Ephesians 4 (1–3) “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Introduction: Ephesians is about behavior; behavior pleasing and worthy of the vocation (voice) of God in chapter 4:1. It is God’s voice that has called us, and He has certainly called us to []

The Burning Altars of Revival

TEXT: I Kings 18 (30) B.R:  I Kings 18 (27-32) INTRO: ALTAR :  The platform upon which offerings are made to a deity. This may include a ritual sacrifice of animals or a burning of incense before God (Ex 30:1–10).

I The Altar means Sacrifice The []

To him that believeth

Text: Mark 9 (23)  “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” B.R: Mark 9 (14-27) INTRO:  Let’s take this text verse and read it in the negative;  “If you don’t believe, nothing is possible…TO YOU.  This verse doesn’t state that YOUR BELIEF makes all things possible that were otherwise impossible  (examples-a fish lays eggs and giraffes are miraculously hatched because you believed it.  Your belief changes natural laws??) TO YOU is the key []
