Sermon notes: The parable of the Sower

Sermon notes: The parable of the Sower

Introduction

I am fully aware that I have preached to you from this passage before but wanted to share the same today for a very good reason. As your Pastor I am responsible for your personal spiritual growth. You know sometimes we get complacent in our Christian walk which hinders our spiritual growth. When that happens I have to stir your nest and remind you to start moving forward again. So, I am going to stir your nest tonight. Now, like I told you the last time I preached from this passage, Jesus spoke about four different groups of people that are in the Church.

Valentine’s day sermon 2015: The greatest commandment

Introduction

St. Valentine’s is a day in which the church talks a lot about God’s love for man. This Valentine’s however I want to talk about how we are supposed to love God and others.

Sermon: Young Jesus is lost and found

Sermon: Young Jesus is lost and found

Introduction

In the movie “Home Alone” the McCallister family, in the confusion and rush to board their flight on time, leaves little Kevin at home and do not know until they are already airborne. A similar thing happened almost 2000 years ago and unlike in the movie this was for real. The Bible says that Mary and Joseph left Jesus behind on their return trip from Jerusalem. There are three important truths about God’s presence we can learn from this incident.
