Book of Acts
Courage Under Fire As we start, I want you to imagine yourself in a room filled with powerful individuals — individuals who hold your future in their hands. They give you a choice: to stay quiet about your faith in Jesus Christ or face severe consequences. What would you do? Would you keep quiet for…
The Book of Jonah
What Right Do We Have? Let’s read Jonah 4:9-11 9 Then God said to Jonah, “ Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?” And he said, “ It is right for me to be angry, even to death!” 10 But the Lord said, “You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came…
Please open your bibles to 1 Corinthians 6 . We are picking up our study in 1 Corinthians, and we are finding Paul transitioning to yet another issue in the church. He has been chastising them for wrong thoughts and behaviors, primarily stemming from their pride. They tried to boast about which Christian…
I like to preach in series. I feel like we can stay on a particular topic for several weeks. Last week we just finished a series on Prayer. Next week we will begin a series on Following Jesus. But, I also like to have a single sermon placed in amongst series so that I can give you a lesson that is not…

I NEED HELP SCRIPTURE READING Please open your Bibles with me to the book of 2 Chronicles 26:1-5 And all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the place of his father Amaziah.

The Life of Joseph
Pastor Luke preached from Genesis 39, stating that the main idea was "Right choices are always right even if the outcome isn’t right." Sight in this story included: Potiphar saw the Lord was with Joseph and was blessed, (verses 1-6), Potiphar’s wife saw an attractive Joseph and she tempted him, (verses 7-19), and the prison warden saw the Lord’s favor was with Joseph and trusted him (verses 20-23).
Right & Wrong
Dan Taylor • Hope Baptist Church • Sermon • • 12 views • 36:50
Ephesians 2:1-5 There are many prinicples in the Bible to help lead us through knowing right from wrong. It is important to be in God's word daily to help recognize what is wrong and to continue to do the right thing even if it isn't popular.
Independence Day Today is the 4th of July. Happy Independence Day. This is the day we celebrate America. Our forefathers stood up to what they saw as tyranny, unfairness, taxation without representation, government overreach, and they said “no more!” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all…
Holidays: New Year Day
Pastor George Coon • ELBC • Sermon • • 17 views • 36:13
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 The begining of a new year often marks new changes in our lives. Many of us make New Year's resolutions. How long we hold to them depends on our determination to seeing them through. In this new year we need to be determined to shore up many of those spiritually weak areas in our lives.
Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful
Faith is the foundation to which other attributes should be added. What kind of faith do we have? What happens when we don't add the attributes Peter talks about? What is the motivating factor to keep God's commandments?

Jesus is very confident in the sovereignty of God. He is not afraid of the misunderstandings of others or of their lack of trust. He is sure in Himself and in the Work of the Father. God has promised rivers of flowing or living water flowing out of our inmost being... He didn't leave us to wonder what that means. God gives Himself, He gives His Spirit to those who trust in Him. God is present with us always, even to teh end of the age. Don't be afraid, dear Saint. God is not wondering what is happening as you are. He is not confused. He doesn't feel as though things are out of control. You might feel this way. He does not. God reigns on His throne as Sovereign over all of His creation. I would do well to trust Him. LORD, increase our faith. These thoughts shared by Jason Stuart Precy at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, January 2, 2022.
Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful
Peter says to add to our faith, "virtue." What is virtue? How are we to feel about the change that is needed to become more Christ-like?

We excercise judgement about many things every day. Jesus asks us to be wise in judgement and not to simply judge the outside or cursory things. We need wisdom and we need to be asking, seeking, and knocking that we might know how to treat others the way we want to be treated. It is possible to be decieved and so good judgement is of vital importance seeing that Jesus' way is narrow and there are few who find it. LORD, give us wisdom. Help us to be merciful to others. Help us to love each other enough to hold each other accountable with mercy and grace and love. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, August 5, 2019.

Introduction: "By any means necessary” seems to me to be an anthem of our culture today. We see it in politics, definitely in our movies and TV series (Example). The world is okay with shifting what is right around to accomplish it’s aims. How should Christians think about it? (In our text today) As…

Fair Wages “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. After agreeing with the laborers for the usual daily wage, he sent them into his vineyard. When he went out about nine o’clock, he saw others standing idle in the marketplace;…

Embracing Hope by Eliminating Avoidable Errors
Robert C. Beckman Jr. • Sermon • • 2 views
Start Entice: If ever there was a skippable chapter for the modern preacher, that chapter would be 1 Corinthians 8. The issue it discusses has not been pertinent for 17 centuries. When preachers update the issue to make it relevant the sermon often ends up full of trivial technicalities or trite moralisms…
