In the Bible we meet several gentiles who were helped by God. Among them the account of the Syrophoenician woman is quite significant because of her conversation with Jesus. Today there’s a lot of talk going around as to why Jesus made such a rude statement. Our attention however should be on her clever reply because in it there are some strong lessons for us. Lets see what her statement meant to Jesus and what are its implications for us.

The news was out: help was available for the sick! But a certain paralytic had no way to get to it. Physically disabled people like him were not only immobile, but usually poor. Useless to society and lacking help from the government, they invariably lived as social outcasts.
But some men knew of this man’s dilemma and came to his need. They helped him get to a house where Jesus was teaching. Yet enormous crowds made access impossible. Fortunately, the men were determined and resourceful: they literally tore the roof off in order to connect their friend with the helper.
Luke says that Jesus “noticed their faith”. What made Jesus to take special note of their faith? In today’s sermon I want to share with you three qualities that forms the type of faith that grabs God’s attention. Click here to read the rest of, Sermon notes: Jesus heals a paralytic at Capernaum

This is not the final sermon to be preached on the subject of “Speaking in tongues”. Christians will continue to debate with each other until our Lord returns to settle this matter once and for all time.
In the many pamphlets and books I have examined opinions differ. We do know that the phenomenon of tongues-speaking is widespread, and it is likely that no issue in Christendom has caused as wide a split in its ranks in modern times as has speaking in tongues.
Therefore in today’s sermon I am going to show you 5 basic and biblical truths about speaking in tongues.

Text: Daniel 1:1-21
Here are some quotes about Christianity before going for my sermon today.
- Christians are in the world but not of it.
- This earth is not the home of Christians. They are just passing by.
Both of these quotations have only one meaning. God’s children does not belong to this world. But God has a plan for each one of us and we must live on this earth faithful to Him until He calls us home one day. We are less than perfect people living in a sinful and world. How can we live without compromising while still living in a world who runs after pleasure?
There are 3 principals we can learn from Daniel in relation to this question.
