“Gift Fit for …”

Matthew 2:1-12 {Prayer}             As with most Christmas hymns, we pretty much have only the first verse of them memorized.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing, however, by only having the first verse memorized, we can easily miss out on the depth and the true meaning of the hymn.              Take “What Child Is This”…

“The Word Dwelt Among Us”

John 1:14a {Prayer}             August 24, 2006.  That’s when it all happened.  That’s when things went south.  That’s when the bottom fell out and that’s when everything came completely undone.  August 24, 2006.             On March 24, 1930 things had begun with so much joy and excitement.  There were fireworks.  There was this great flourish…

“We Have Seen His Glory!”

John 1:14b {Prayer}             “We have seen his glory.”  Five simple words.  These five words will change our life.  These five words will change our life, forever.  “We have seen his glory.”             For fifty-one years, Bob Edens was blind.  Bob couldn’t see a darn thing.  His world was a black hole.  But Bob Edens…

“Chosen Children”

John 1:12b {Prayer}             Between 1854 and 1929, over 200,000 orphans in cities like New York, Boston, and Philly were placed on trains and shipped west across the United States.  These trains would periodically stop for viewings.  Yes, viewings.  Children would be lined up like cattle at an auction.  Potential parents would ask questions, evaluate…

“A Man Named John”

John 1:6-9, 15 {Prayer}             Nadin Khoury was 13 years old, 5 foot 2 and weighed, soaking wet, 100 pounds.  Nadin’s mom had lost her job as a hotel maid and needed work.  She moved her family from Minneapolis to Philadelphia.  In 2000, the family had escaped war-torn Liberia in West Africa.  Nadin Khoury, then,…

“You Have My Word”

John 1:1-5 {Prayer}             “You have my word!”  When you hear those four little words, it’s easy to become skeptical.  And why is that?  I think it’s because we live in a world of broken promises, a world filled with empty vows, a world where pledges are made only to be forgotten.  Assurances are given…

“Hands”

2 Corinthians 5:21 {Prayer}             Hands.  Hands are an important part of our body, especially as we consider Thanksgiving.  Hands are what is going to clean our turkeys, stuff our turkeys, put our turkeys in the oven or on the smoker.  Hands are going to make up and place those pumpkin pies in the oven…

“When Time Runs Out”

Daniel 12:1-3             {Prayer}             One of the movies I enjoy watching when the weather starts getting colder is “Grumpy Old Men.”  The two main characters at John Gustafson and Max Goldman.  They are elderly men who have been lifelong neighbors and friends.  They get into a feud over a woman who moved in across…

“The Dead Preach the Gospel

Revelation 7:9-17 {Prayer}             Walking through a cemetery and looking at gravestones can be an educational experience.  The things etched into the gravestones can tell you a little about the person.  You know for sure when it was when they were born as well as they day they passed away.  You can tell if they…

“Jesus’ Blood for You”

1 Peter 1:17-19 {Prayer}           The Bible passage for the basis of our message this morning comes from 1 Peter 1:17-19 which says: “Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such…
