Sermon: Jesus walks on Water

Sermon: Jesus walks on water


Like any other account in the Bible, this story also must be interpreted in its own context in order to understand the author’s original intentions. The story unfolds followed by a messianic uproar, (John 6:15). In response, Jesus immediately sent his disciples away while he dismissed the crowd and went up on a mountainside by himself to pray.

Why did Jesus evade such a good opportunity? Being the king of Jews sure sounds impressive.  That was not his mission, however. God’s plan for him was to suffer and die so that we shall be saved. Likewise, God has a plan for each one of us. He wants us to stick to the plan before he can bless us. This chapter teaches us three important principles about honoring the divine plan.

Sermon: Jesus calms the storm

Sermon: Jesus calms the storm


The sea of Galilee is actually a vast lake (166 Km2) surrounded by a ring of mountains. It has been scientifically proven this unique geographical position is directly responsible for the storms sweeping the lake during the later hours of the day. This condition still exists to this day and the local fishermen exercise plenty of caution.

Sermon: The Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican

Sermon: The parable of the Pharisee and the Publican


Westboro Baptist church, followed by bomb explosions in Boston and Texas tweeted that the victims were sinners upon whom God’s wrath descended and wowed to picket funerals of the victims.

Westboro’s careless response to a national tragedy actually reminds me of the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. Jesus told it to some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else. So this is God’s message for you and me today.

Sermon: How to Prepare for Eternity?

Sermon: How to prepare for eternity Ecclesiastes 3:11


The largest ‘Pyramid’ in Egypt belongs to Khufu, an Egyptian Pharaoh. Studies have revealed it took around 6700 highly skilled men (let alone the slaves) and 20 years of labor to build. Why did Khufu put such a huge effort into building himself a tomb? The Egyptians believed in life after death so much they made preparations while they were still alive. You see, God had placed eternity in their hearts.

Sermon: Three Challenges for Good Friday

Good Friday sermon: The burial of Jesus


Jesus had breathed his last and someone had to arrange for his burial. All the disciples but John were in hiding. His mother was grieving and there’s no evidence Jesus’ brothers and sisters were in town. The Roman law did not permit burying criminals accused of treason either and no-one dared to violate the Roman law.

Easter Sermon: The Journey to Emmaus

Easter Sermon 2013: The journey to Emmaus


The death of Jesus Christ actually shattered the hopes and dreams of his disciples. Though the resurrection had already taken place they were so affected by what happened three days ago they felt helpless, frustrated, disappointed, discouraged and left behind. It is at a time like this that Jesus met two of them on their way to Emmaus.

New year sermon 2013: The gifts of the wise men

New year sermon: The gifts of the wise men Matthew 2:1-12


The arrival of the wise men wasn’t a part of the story of Jesus’ birth at all. They actually came in a time when the miracle of Jesus’ birth had long since worn off – while Mary and Joseph were caught in the busyness of life and parenting. In a time like this, the gifts once again reminded them of three important truths God had told them in the beginning. Today even as the Christmas season is far behind us and we are about to get caught in the busyness of the new year God wants to remind us of those three truths.

Sermon: How to start life all over again in Year 2013?

How to start life over again in year 2013?


It’s a well-known fact that at the end of a year many people attempt to start life all over again. Unfortunately, most of them at the end of another whole year find themselves right where they were. Tonight even as we step into a brand new year I decided to share with you about another man who found himself in the same situation. If you have been trying to start over but wasn’t successful chances are high that you have been repeating the mistakes he made. By the way, the man is known to us as Jacob. These are the mistakes he made and how he overcame.
