Introduction

As the disciples were competing for higher positions in the Messianic Kingdom it was only a matter of time before the enemy will take control, disrupt their fellowship cause disunity and cripple Jesus’ plan. Our Lord was aware of this situation when He told them to love one another. Even as Valentine’s Day is around the corner join me to find out what it really means to love one another.

Sermon: The Lord of the Easter

Introduction

The disciples were discouraged and disappointed even after Jesus’ resurrection. They returned to fishing. Then the risen Lord appeared before them. He Commissioned them to follow him saying, “follow me…” – He is the Lord of the Easter! This Easter His commission for the church is that we follow Him. How do we follow the Lord of Easter?

Sermon: The Unspeakable Genealogy of Jesus

Introduction

Alex Haley became a household word and an instant millionaire when he wrote a book tracing his ancestry back to his “Roots: The Saga of an American Family.” Most of us have some interest in our genealogy because somehow it connects us to our ancestors. Most of us also find some ancestors we would rather not be identified with. Jesus had such ancestors, but he chose to identify himself with them, (Matthew 1:1-17). I would like for us to look at several of them today. [A sermon by Dr. Arnold Lastinger. Used with permission.]

Christmas Sermon 2010: The Bethlehem’s Baby and the Divine Design

Christmas sermon 2010: The Bethlehem’s baby and the divine design

Introduction

Bethlehem today is a thriving town, inhabited mostly by Christian Arabs (in name if not in fact). But, in the time of Christ, it was a tiny, insignificant town, known only for the fact that it had once been King David’s hometown. How was it that Jesus Christ, Son of God and King of the Universe would choose to be born here in a lowly cow stall?

Sermon: The Amazing Ministry of Peter and John

Introduction

The healing of a crippled beggar at the gate called “The Beautiful Gate” leading to the Temple is the first healing miracle recorded in the book of Acts. The disciples had performed miracles before, but this was also the first miracle they performed after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. There are five important principles we can draw from this chapter. If you have your bibles, please turn with me to Acts 3:1-26. [A sermon preached by Dr. Arnold Lastinger. Used with permission.]

Introduction

2009 is over. 2010 is here. As we stand here at the beginning of a New Year it is a good time to reflect on the year that is ending and look forward to the year that is soon to begin. It is also a good time for God’s people to take inventory of their walk with the Lord. We should take a very close look at where we are in our relationship with Him. We need to examine ourselves and see where we have been, where we are, and where the Lord wants us to be. This passage gives us the opportunity and the challenge to do just that.

Christmas 2009: Lessons from the Angelic Annunciation to Shepherds

Introduction

The Christmas season is known for two things. It marks the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as well as the end of a year. This year (2009) has been of great significance to our nation, politically, socially, and economically.

It was politically significant as our dear President Barrack Obama was sworn in as the first black American President. Socially speaking we saw the Bart Police shooting of Oscar Grant which resulted in protests and several hours of violence in Oakland, California. Economically speaking this year marked the worst period of the great recession that saw nearly 800,000 jobs lost.

All of these events received the worldwide media coverage that they deserved. They were noteworthy happenings in the history of our nation.

Sermon: Love Written in Blood

Introduction

St. Valentine’s Day reminds me of a true story about a young broken-hearted man who wrote a letter to his fiancée in blood. It is said that he died after writing the letter. The story of this lover and his message written in his own blood is a moving one, especially at this time in which we celebrate human love or St. Valentine’s Day. There is another moving love story written in blood, one I want you to consider now. That love is the love of Jesus Christ for a lost world. [Original sermon by: Robert L. Cobb – Administrator of News for Christians.]
