The REAL God is Holy

Series: Preacher: Date: September 23, 2018 Scripture Reference: Isaiah 6:1-7

An Alien Environment Today we explore the holiness of God and how it relates to us.  For many of us we approach holiness the way we approach a big, tangled ball of yarn.  We’d like to unravel it and get the knots out, but it’s a lot easier to simply cut it out and move […]

The Real God is Sovereign

Series: Preacher: Date: September 16, 2018 Scripture Reference: Various

Gerald Gardner was a TV writer, best known for writing the scripts for two of my favorite TV shows when I was growing up—The Monkees and Get Smart. In 1962, Gardner got the idea of taking news photos of U.S. Presidents and adding humorous dialog in the form of speech bubbles that supposedly showed what they were saying […]

The Real God is GOOD!

Series: Preacher: Date: September 9, 2018 Scripture Reference: Various

I want us to begin this morning by talking about produce goodness. And let’s start with watermelons. How do you know if a WATERMELON is good? Well, first you pick it up. If it’s good—if it’s ripe—it should feel heavy for its size. You may have to compare a few of the same size—but the […]

Seeking God

Series: Preacher: Date: September 2, 2018 Scripture Reference: Various

We just had a great vacation. After a few days spent getting work done at my mom’s house, Sue and I spent a week at one of our favorite places: Ocean Isle Beach—with our children and grand-children. As you can see in this picture, we had an INCREDIBLE time. Our daily schedule was pretty much […]

Rahab—The Grace of Faith

Series: Preacher: Date: August 12, 2018 Scripture Reference: Joshua 2

I just finished reading a great book about a chapter in WWII history that I had not heard of before. Apparently, I’m not alone in that because the title of the book is, The Forgotten 500. It chronicles one of the greatest rescue and escape stories ever—but until recently it was virtually unknown—hardly anyone had […]


Series: Preacher: Date: August 5, 2018 Scripture Reference: 1 Samuel 25

In the early 1980s a very wealthy married couple got into an argument. Things got heated—escalating to the point that they both started acting like fools. Their fight started when the husband cancelled a vacation—saying he had to work. The wife expressed her “disappointment” by pouring bicarbonate soda into her husband’s fish tank, killing his […]

Sharing Your Resurrection Story

Series: Preacher: Date: July 29, 2018 Scripture Reference: Acts 25:13-26:32

As I said last Sunday, 24 of us had a great experience attending the Tony Evans conference that was held at THE COVE last week. I will organize another trip next year—but don’t wait on us. If you get a chance to go to THE COVE to hear one of the speakers they have—DO. Sue […]

An Example to Follow

Series: Preacher: Date: July 22, 2018 Scripture Reference: John 4:1-42

A Matter of Priority Have you ever come across people who clearly have misplaced priorities? We can look at them and realize what they care about is completely out of whack. One such example is that of Marcin Muchalski. Marcin was a tough New Yorker – I’ll give him that much – who was approached […]

The Message That Wakes the Dead

Series: Preacher: Date: July 15, 2018 Scripture Reference: Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8; 10:9-10-13

Let’s begin the message this morning with a quick survey about how you wake yourselves up every morning. How many still use alarm clocks? How many use their cell phones? How many ask Alexa to rouse you from your slumber? How many use their grandkids? I’ve learned I can almost literally set my clock by […]

Winning the Right

Series: Preacher: Date: July 8, 2018 Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:13-16

Your salt-of-the-earth lifestyle produces consistent and potent good works that people can’t help but notice, and your light-of-the-world brightness illuminates God as the source of them. A lifestyle of distinct living as a follower of Jesus may get people’s attention – especially as you meet their needs in sacrificial ways – but they need the illumination of the Good News of Jesus to understand you’re not just a really nice person. And a lifestyle of sharing the illuminating message of Jesus is a must, but it will fall on deaf ears if people can’t connect it to the distinct, salty acts that reflect the love of Jesus.
