Sermon: Three ingredients of Discipleship and the price we pay for being genuine disciples of Christ.

Introduction

Christians love Chris Gayle for he talks about God, both in the field and home. Unfortunately, however, he leads a questionable lifestyle that doesn’t fit the Bible-believing Christians. Then there’s Tatenda Taibu, the Zimbabwe wicketkeeper-batsman, who gave up Cricket, to work for the church.

Introduction

The history speaks of a Bishop, who is said to have proclaimed that heavier-than-air human flight wasn’t possible, because it contradicted God’s will. His name was Milton Wright and he was the father of Orville and Wilbur Wright. Apparently his understanding of God’s will was seriously flawed!

Sermon: A Samaritan woman's encounter with Jesus

Introduction

Many years ago a young man who sought supernatural intervention for his problems, walked into a Hindu Temple, hoping to receive the favor of the gods that temple was dedicated for.

Christmas sermon 2015: God calls Mary

Introduction

In the ancient world the word “calling” was of great significance. In those days the word was used to refer to the act of being summoned by the King. Likewise God also has called or summoned us to his presence. In fact the Greek word for church (ekklésia) means called out from the world and to God. In today’s message we will look at three areas in the call of God, from another famous passage. It’s none other than the Angelic visit to Mary. (We have a sermon on Joseph (Jesus’ Guardian Father also. See it here.)
