Yet another great message by Pastor Jim Milne, from Ecclesiastes 4:4 & Matthew 4:4. Enjoy.
“The Church in the Rearview Mirror” (Acts, Conclusion)
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 28:11-31 | Today’s church looks ahead to a shining new direction tempered by great uncertainty about its future. Perhaps we should be looking in the rearview mirror at the newborn church, who knew exactly what they were and why…
“When God Gives You Snakes with Your Shipwreck”
God made Paul endure a shipwreck then let a viper bite him—was this God’s will? Definitely. And here’s why it was so good… (Acts 28:1-10)
“For Those Who Can’t Walk on Water”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 27 | Paul got shipwrecked three times yet never once walked on water. What about that—and why can’t we when our ships go down?
“Standing in a Kneeling World”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 27:1-20 | The Apostle Paul was a prisoner, headed to Rome on a hurricane-driven ship. But why was he really on that ship? The answer will surprise—and change you.
“Can’t Buy Me Love…” (Pastor Jim Milne)
What does God’s love look like in practice? Here are a few thoughts from Pastor Jim Milne for Valentine’s Day. Sweeten someone’s day. (1 Cor. 13)
“The Most Excellent Way…” (Manny Chaves)
Some great thoughts on God’s love by church Elder Manny Chaves (while Pastor Jay quarantines this week). Love one another! (1 Cor. 13)
“Almost a Christian” Part 2
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 26 | Almost a Christian? There’s no such thing—as King Agrippa learned when he put Paul on trial… [Note: “My mouth occasionally moves faster than my brian. At one point I referred to ‘Festus’ as ‘king of the Jews’ when I meant to say ‘Agrippa’ (but you likely figured that out already).” —Jay]
“Almost a Christian” Part 1
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 25-26 | Paul was a prisoner on trial—which also gave him a captive audience—Roman Dignitaries all. The battle for souls was engaged…
“An Inconvenient Salvation”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 24 | The Apostle Paul was on trial before Roman Governor Felix—but it was really the other way around. A sermon for those times when life gets too real…
“Called to Do the Dishes”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 23:12-35 | Paul was in big trouble with a lot of dangerous people, but he was unstoppable—God was just beginning the biggest part of his ministry. What doe this have to do with washing dishes? You’ll find out…
“Where Was Jesus When I Needed Him?”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 23:11 | The question we all want answered…
“Why Our Wonder is Fleeting”
Pastor Jay McCarl | In all the tainted history of the church, where did it go wrong? The answer lies in terse exchange between the Apostle Paul and a very corrupt high priest. (Acts 22:22-23:10)
“Paul’s Plays His Trump Cards”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 21:27-22:22 | As he faced murder by a rioting mob, Paul played every card in his hand to win their souls. The question now is, what ‘cards’ are we playing in the battle for souls? This is no game…
“What to Do When There’s No Way Out”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 21:17-22:1
“Prophecy and ‘The People of the Book'”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 21: 1-17 (Part 2)
“Why the World Awaits You” (Lane Wettengel, CRI)
Psalm 67 | Guest Speaker Lane Wettengel (CRI) | The Lord Jesus didn’t tell His followers to invite people to church—He told them to go. He didn’t pour out His Spirit on His people to feel good about their church, He told them to go—and He hasn’t rescinded His command. Whether it’s our next door neighbor or someone on the other side of the world, people need Jesus. Near or far, His church was commissioned to take the Gospel to the lost and needy of the world and to encourage missionaries serving in field. And His church is us.
“Dancing With Wolves” (Church Leadership, Part 4)
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 20:28-29 | Paul told church leaders their flocks would be attacked by ‘savage wolves’. He also told them what to expect and how to prepare in just a few words. A powerful message about taking care of God’s church. (Church Leadership, Part 4)
“Racing Toward an Uncertain Future” (Church Leadership, Part 2)
Jay McCarl | Acts 20:22-24 | What could possibly be more valuable than a single human life? Paul attacks the question head-on and makes himself—and us—part of the equation. Especially for church leaders, elders, pastors, rectors, bishops, reverends and sheep.
“The Screaming of the Lambs” (Church Leadership, Part 1)
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 20:13-21 | Church leadership in 2020 is shifting under duress—from trendiness to ‘fish or cut bait’. The warnings of Paul were never more timely. Part 1.
“Rest, Unrest and All the Rest”
Pastor Jay McCarl | Acts 20:1-12 | On which day should the church meet—Saturday or Sunday? More than that—what exactly is a day of rest really for? Take a break and get blessed.
