“Stop Trying and Start Trusting”

Exodus 14:1-29             {Prayer}             Try to picture this. The National Youth Gathering youth and leaders, about 25 people in all, are flying on Southwest to New Orleans. As the Boeing 737 starts taxing down the runway, the youth start flapping their arms like a bird. The flight attendants come along and are like “What…

“How God Changes Us”

Exodus 3:1-14           {Prayer}           What do you want to change in your life? Maybe a bad habit? A bad relationship? A bad attitude? A bad situation? Or maybe a bad decision? What is it that you look at and say, “This just isn’t right. It’s got to change!”?           We live in a society…

“We Have … Christ-Centered Clothes”

Colossian 3:12-17             {Prayer}             So I’d like to conduct an informal survey. What is the most shocking piece of clothing in your closet? 1) An old college sweatshirt. 2) A purple and pink bathrobe. 3) A St. Louis Cardinals baseball hat. 4) A Hawaiian shirt that your wife can’t stand. 5) A T-shirt that…

“We Have a … Christ-Centered Mind”

Colossians 3:1-11             {Prayer}             A little refresher of where we’ve been in this series.             Chapter 1, we looked at doctrine or teaching. Christ at the Center declared that Jesus is, “Firstborn of all creation” (Col. 1:15). “Firstborn from the dead” (1:18). “So that he might have first place in all things” (1:18).            …

“We Have a … Christ Centered Gospel”

Colossians 1:1-14             {Prayer}             Bob Newhart on the Bob Newhart show plays a psychiatrist. In one episode, a client arrives at his office and he explains his billing. “I charge five dollars for the first five minutes. Any time after that is free. Is that acceptable?” The woman can’t believe it. She says, “Of…

“Faithful Watching & Waiting”

1 Thessalonians 5:1-10             {Prayer}             Here we are the weekend before Thanksgiving. Many people across our nation, including my family, we will be traveling. With that thought in mind … have you ever been in an airline terminal when the plane you are waiting for is late? Once that announcement comes across the intercom,…

“It’s Just One of Those Days”

Amos 5:18-24 {Prayer}             Ever just have one of those days? You know the ones. One of those days where everything is going along great and then something happens. You burnt your toast, you spilled your coffee down your shirt, the heater in the car didn’t work this morning. Things just keep coming at you…

“Part of the Crowd”

Revelation 7:9-17             {Prayer}             As a kid growing, just like kids growing up today, I thought I was being deprived by my parents of what I thought were the bare necessities of life. When I was told no when everyone else I knew was being told yes or that it’s okay, I felt like…

“In Good Hands”

Isaiah 64:1-8             {Prayer}             In 1950, Dave Ellis’ daughter JoAnn fell victim to hepatitis. She was an honor student at Evanston High School, the valedictorian of her graduating class, the ‘baby’ in the Ellis family, and the apple of her parent’s eye.             Things didn’t look to good to Dave one morning as he…
