TEXT: Matthew 10:23-25 This weekend, Americans celebrated the fourth of July. It was the 238th anniversary of the day America declared her independence from Great Britain. That decision to throw off the yoke of British tyranny and forge from nothing but an idea the form of democracy that we have today, caused no small conflict for the thirteen colonies. Britain, France, Germany, and the Native American tribes were all involved in the American War for Independence. There was tremendous loss of life on both sides, and tremendous economic loss for the colonists. But, as we look back on that War […]

Illegitimate Fathers of the Bible

Published June 15, 2014

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #172 TEXT: Psalm 139:14-16 On this Father’s Day, I want to share with you from the word of God a brief message on the illegitimate fathers of the Bible. Society has historically referred to “illegitimate children” as the product of sex between a man and a woman who are not married to each other. However, when we really think about it, we know that there are no illegitimate children — the children are a gift from God. It is the parents who are illegitimate. Pastor Rick Warren said, ‘A birth is no mistake or mishap; a […]

How to Face Constant Conflict as a Christian (Part 6)

Published June 1, 2014

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #170 TEXT: Matthew 10:16: “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Today, we are going to look at three reasons why Jesus commands us to be “harmless as doves.” Doves are very important in the Biblical narrative. A dove first appears in Genesis chapter 8 when Noah sends out a raven and a dove to see if the waters of the Great Flood had subsided. As you recall, the raven did not come back to the Ark, but the dove did […]

7 Keys to a God-Blessed Life (#1): Trust God

Published December 22, 2013

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #139 TEXT: Genesis 12:1-4 F.B. Meyer said, “God has a purpose in every life, and when the soul is completely yielded and acquiescent, He will certainly realize it. Blessed is he who has never thwarted the working of the divine.” Many people talk about living a blessed life or a fulfilled life. What they mean is something more than just success — this is something more than just having plenty of money, having prominence, and having all of your needs supplied. I believe that this desire refers to something deeper and more meaningful. Even though many […]
