What did Jesus talk the most about when He was walking on the earth? Why did He choose that topic to teach the most? What implications does the Kingdom of God have in our lives and how do we make Jesus' priority our priority? Walking through the Bible today we will see a clearer understanding of the Kingdom of Heaven and how we can make sure we safely arrive in the Celestial City for all eternity.

Psalm 50 David gives guidance to our interactions with those who have harmed us, those you are two faced in their beliefs, and the wicked. We are reminded not to forget they we have been warned and if you choose obedience you are rewarded eternally, but if you choose disobedience you are eternally separated from God.
Calvinism and Denominationalism
Is the idea of "once saved, always saved" true? Who bears the responsibility for keeping the saved in a saved state?

The name Pontius Pilate is one of the most notorious names in history. If his name was announced at a baseball game, the crowd would "boo". Pilate is usually viewed as the great villain in the story of our Savior's death. However, I'm afraid that by dismissing Pilate so quickly we may miss the lessons…

The Apostle John wrote a fatherly letter to an early church, hoping to visit them soon, but writing about things that couldn't wait. He affirms them by expressing great joy that they are walking in the truth and praciticing what they believe. He exhorts them to love one another according to what the Lord has commanded. Finally, he warns them to avoid those who don't abide by the true teaching of Christ alone.

You hear it again and again in sports, business and education, “he/she had so much potential”. It is a phrase usually spoken about someone who failed to do what was expected or what others perceived was possible. The words may be applied to the highly touted college star, the gifted (but lazy) student;…
Study of Hebrews
Keith Roberts • NEW LIFE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP • Sermon • • 360 views • 24:43
As we continue through the book of Hebrews, we will study the author’s message in chapter 3 where he continues to emphasize the superiority of Jesus over any outstanding Israelite leader, in this case, Moses. Also, we will see his second of five warnings focusing on unbelief.

It is a statement so commonly repeated that we often overlook the wisdom in it: “Those who do not learn from history, are destined to repeat it.” A similar statement could be: those who do not learn from their mistakes will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. In 2 Peter, the apostle…
A number of years ago I officiated at the wedding of Jane Ann Fort. For those who didn’t know Jane Ann, to say Jane was spirited would be an understatement. Jane taught music in La Harpe for 20 years and was our choir Director for many years as well. Whenever she was in front of a microphone you never…
Attributes of God
Rev. Bruce Goettsche • Union Church of La Harpe Illinois • Sermon • • 259 views
When people talk about the attributes and character of God you are almost certain to hear about God's Love, His mercy, His omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence. I guess you could call these the "popular" attributes of God. There are also some that are not so popular. I would call them the forgotten…

At the end of one year and at the beginning of another we have this strange custom of waiting until midnight to bid one year farewell and another hello (which results in spending much of the first day of the New Year asleep!). I suppose the celebration is anchored to the hope of a new beginning. People…
The Book of Colossians
Randy Bradley • Sermon • • 30 views • 25:26
Paul calls for the Colossians to beware of false teachings or be taken captive by them. Our world today is filled to overflowing with just such false teaching. We need to "See to it" that we are not taken captive by teachings that are "not according to Christ."
One of the challenges many of us struggle with is learning people’s names. We are all pretty good about introductions the first time. Unfortunately, the next time you see that person, we find ourselves scrambling to remember their names. After the third or fourth time of not remembering their name, we…

John continues in his letter to reassure believers of their salvation and reveal for those who think they believe but are not truly saved marks in their life that tell what their true spiritual condition is. This time he points people to these tests: Are you loving the saints? Are you praying confidently?; are you obeying God because you love Him?; Are you trusting Christ?; Are you spiritually alive?
GLENN PEASE • Sermon • • 29 views
By Pastor Glenn Pease A deaf but pious English lady visiting a country town in Scotland went to church with an ear trumpet. It was a new device then, and the elders of the church had never seen one, and they viewed it with great suspicion. After consultation one of them walked over to her and waging…
