Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “God’s Bail-Out Plan” based on Acts 4:8-12:

  • The economy is in crisis.  We got that way by the irresponsible actions of many.
  • The government has tried/is trying multiple “bailout plans” to rescue the economy.
  • Two of the bailout plans seem to have failed.  The third may not do much either.
  • Our spiritual condition is in crisis.  We got that we because we sin.
  • We have tried multiple ways to get ourselves out of this mess, but nothing seems to work.
  • God decided that HE would take charge of the situation and bail us out.
  • God became Flesh and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus died for us on the cross, taking our punishment upon Him.
  • If we accept His act on our behalf, we are “bailed out” of our sin debt.
  • If we do not accept Jesus’ act on the cross, we must face the full wrath of God.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Straddling Fences” based on I Kings 18:17-39:

  • True followers of Jesus Christ can expect to be ridiculed, if not persecuted.
  • God can have no rivals.
  • Get off of the fence of indecision and commit to God.
  • God has proved that He IS God and is worthy of our worship.
  • When we hesitate between worshiping God and something else, we do not bring honor to either.
  • You can’t have it both ways;  either belong to the world or belong to God!

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “Baptism: God’s Command” based on Romans 6:1-7

  • Baptism does not save you.
  • Baptism is an act of obedience that demonstrates what has already taken place in your heart.
  • Baptism identifies you as a follower of Jesus Christ.
  • Baptism by immersion is the proper method of baptism for it symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
  • A believer who delays baptism, delays obedience.

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “Christmas Trees” based on Luke 23:33-43:

  • One thief ridiculed Jesus and appeared to only want out of the situation.
  • Jesus did not respond to him.
  • The other thief realized his situation was hopeless and “reached out” to Jesus in faith.
  • Jesus responded to Him and gave him salvation.
  • Many people only want something out of God or out of a church, but aren’t willing to change their lives.
  • While we put our Christmas gifts UNDER the tree, God put His Gift to mankind ON the tree, that is, the cross.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Christmas Greetings” based on Luke 2:8-20:

  • God chose to announce the birth of Jesus to a bunch of lowly shepherds.
  • God used His heavenly host to proclaim this news to these shepherds.
  • No one thought too much of shepherds and they weren’t trusted.
  • God demonstrated that it isn’t status or station that He is interested in.
  • The shepherds went with reckless abandon to see the newborn Savior.
  • The shepherds honored God by glorifying Him.
  • We, like the shepherds must be faithful to share the Good News.
  • The Good News only started at the manger; it continued all the way through the empty tomb.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “Thank You, Lord” based on Luke 17:11-19:

  • Sin is like leprosy; it separates, stinks, and kills.
  • Jesus can heal our souls of sin, just as He healed the lepers of their disease.
  • There is so much to be grateful for, but we often ignore it.
  • The other nine were happy about their healing, but they didn’t take the time to say “thank you”.
  • We must find God at work in everything and give Him thanks.
