Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Christmas Lights” based on Matthew 2:1-2,10-12):

  • The Star of Bethlehem led the Magi to Jesus.
  • It allowed them to worship Jesus.
  • It allowed them to present their gifts, but leave with the wealth of the knowledge of the newborn king.
  • It allowed them to have wisdom from God, inasmuch as they obeyed His command in a dream.
  • Jesus told us that we are the light of the world.
  • Like the Christmas Star, we are to lead others to Jesus, so that they, too, might worship Him.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday’s sermon, “Christmas Boxes” based on Luke 1:26-38:

  • Gabriel was sent by God to tell Mary that she had been chosen to bear His son
  • Mary was surprised but consented
  • When Joseph and Mary got to Bethlehem, there was no room for them with anyone so they had to stay in the stable
  • The first “box” was the manger; Jesus was wrapped in cloths and lying in it.
  • The second “box” was the gift of the Magi
  • The third “box” was the Garden Tomb.  It was borrowed, because it wasn’t going to be used for very long.
  • The gift is still available today and has your name written on it.
  • Won’t you open your heart to Jesus?

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “I Am the Truth” based on John 14:6 and John 3.

  • Truth isn’t dependent upon a situation or circumstance.
  • Truth is truth.  Just because you decide to call a cow’s tail a “leg” doesn’t make it a leg.  It is still a tail.
  • Jesus said that He was “the Truth”.
  • Jesus explained to Nicodemus what He meant when He said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have ever lasting life.”
  • If we understand this truth, it will transform our lives and our eternities!

You can listen to the sermon here or by clicking on the audio player below.

There is no Sunday evening sermon, as we had a special guest speaker whose presentation we aren’t able to present on the internet due to security concerns.  He spoke about his service with the US Army in Iraq and gave his testimony as to how God is working there among our military and among the Iraqis.  It was a truly inspirational service.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Borrowing Worry” based on Matthew 6:25-34)

  • Jesus said, “Do not worry”.  That is a command.
  • We worry when we take our eyes off of God and keep them on our troubles.
  • God knows what we need.  That might be different than what we want.
  • It isn’t about you.  It is about God.
  • Worry is the interest we pay when we borrow from tomorrow’s problems.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “A Lesson in Humility” based on Luke 14:7-14:

  • Jesus is THE model for humility
  • A servant cannot be greater than their master, and Jesus humbled himself completely
  • Don’t choose a place of honor; you may be asked to vacate it for someone else
  • Choose a place of humility; you might be asked to ‘move up’
  • Do you want to be great in God’s kingdom?  Be a servant.
  • Pick the jobs no one else wants to do.  Pick the people that one one else wants to be around
  • Humble yourself and God will lift you up

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “What on Earth Are You Doing for Heaven’s Sake?”, based on Matthew 6:19-21:

  • Many people lost everything they had in Hurricane Ike
  • Some folks who lost “everything”, really lost everything; others only lost their possessions
  • When we store up wealth and possessions here on earth, they can easily be taken away
  • When we store up treasures in Heaven, they’ll be there for all eternity.
  • You can tell where your heart is by looking at your checkbook and at your daily planner.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on August 28, 2008

Join us this Sunday at Immanuel as we take a look at II Kings 18:1-7 with the sermon, “Tear Down Your Idols!”  Many of the kings of the Old Testament were commended for “doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord”.  Some were condemned for “doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord”.  Others had a commendation, but with a caveat: “They did right, but did not tear down the altars in the high places”.  We’ll look together to see what that means for each of us today.

Sunday evening is our 5th Sunday Sing and Finger Food Fellowship.  This month, however, we will be adding a very special time of fellowship as we incorporate a baby shower for Amy and Tony Neis.  They are registered at Wal-Mart, so it should be easy to find what they need.

Be sure to invite someone to Sunday School!
