We cannot afford to be lukewarm Christians. Paul teaches in Romans 12:11 that serving the Lord means 1) seeing the Lord as worth more than what the appetites offer; and serving the Lord means 2) seeing the Lord's approval as more valuable than the approval of man and acting on it; and serving the Lord means 3) believing that he has died for us and fulfilled the law for us...

Scripture: Romans 12:11, Romans 15:18, Jeremiah 29:13-14, Galatians 3:13, Galatians 5:13
Jesus commends the Ephesian church for its strengths, offers correction for its problems and encourages members to re-kindle their first love, the Lord Jesus. In the struggle to live passionate Christian lives, we should find ourselves developing deeper love for God and others.

Scripture: Revelation 2:1-7, John 21:15-22
My faith is grounded in history, supported by historical evidence. Therefore, my approach to history is critical. The modern approach precludes the possibility of the supernatural. I see that I must interpret history without prejudice, accepting God's view as accurate, choosing to agree with God's evaluation of the facts and refusing to believe my perspective as true. Evidence...

Hundreds of ministers have admitted that when they get the phone call with the sobbing, furious, or panicked person on the other line, they do not know what to say. Too many times, all they can muster is “I’m sorry”, or “It will be alright”, or some sort of sermon or lecture. After 16 years of ministry, counseling and congregational development, I have found that most...

Bleary-eye and pre-coffee, I stumbled into my bathroom and took a gander in the mirror. YIKES! All I could see were bags beneath my eyes and sags where I used to be perky. I heaved a weary sigh and shook my head in resignation. If only I were blonder. Skinnier. Younger. Sexier. I grunted a morning hello to my drowsy husband Roger. He also checked out his disheveled, thinning...

Hello Roger, I was just reading your teaching on divorce and remarriage and I find it very fulfilling because we are dealing with those issues in our church and this teaching will help me and the other ministers to provide the right advice. However, there is another problem that the church faces which I would also ask your advice and that’s concerning those who married to...

The Lamb of God is also the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. When Christ cleansed the Temple, He became furious at the blatant, presumptious sinfulness of God's people. We are God's Temple and must live holy lives.

Topic: Diety of Christ
Churchgoers can listen to a sermon and never apply it. If they trusted Christ when they were young, they often trust that one-time decision to keep them out of hell with no life-change or fruit of the Spirit operating in their lives. Although we must live by grace through faith, God longs for us to be filled with the Spirit, repent and obey Him. Preached at Cornerstone...

Scripture: Romans 9:1-3, Luke 16:19-24, Matthew 7:21-23
Francis Chan uses the television show "24" as an illustration to remind us that we must live for eternity. God is in control, and we must not be complacently. Many people believe that they are believers and yet show no fruit in the daily lives. We must enter the narrow gate and make Jesus our Lord! Preached at Bayside Church . Linked to YouTube. Transcribed by Preach It,...
