Sense and Nonsense About God's Love - 1 John 4:8 - Apr 27, 1997 - 475

I’d like to begin my message with a simple observation. No attribute of God is so widely believed as the love of God. This observation is quite easily testable. Take a microphone to the streets of Chicago and ask them to tell you what God is like. I will assert without fear of contradiction th ... More

Where Grace and Wrath Meet: What the Cross Meant to God - Romans 3:24-26 - Feb 21, 1999 - 671

Easter comes in just six weeks. In order to prepare our hearts we are going to take the five weeks leading up to Palm Sunday to focus on the cross of Christ. I do not intend to repeat the details of what happened on Good Friday. Most of us know the story very well. Instead I want to ask what happene ... More

How to Spot Counterfeit Christianity - I Corinthians 12:10 - May 27, 1990 - 573

I’d like to begin by quoting from an article published in 1988 in Celebrity magazine. The article is entitled, “The Cult Rage Possesses the Stars,” and is subtitled “Shirley Maclaine, Linda Evans and Sharon Gless believe in spirits beyond the grave—Do you?” In t ... More

How to Pray for Anyone About Anything - Philippians 1:9-11 - Sep 13, 1998 - 370

How would you rate your own prayer life? If you had to give yourself a grade, would it be A … B … C … D … or F? Or as someone suggested, how about the word “Incomplete"? Before you decide on an answer, let’s try the question another way. Is your prayer life A) Exc ... More

Courage: How to Face Down Your Fears - Proverbs 28:1 - Nov 6, 1994 - 621

How much courage do you have? Would your friends, co-workers and family members call you a courageous person? My text this morning is one verse of scripture: Proverbs 28:1. “The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” The dictionary defines coura ... More

Lessons from the Manger - Luke 2:12 - Dec 13, 2006 - 83

“Christmas is full of surprises.” Somewhere in my reading this week I ran across that sentence. While I am sure it is true, it doesn’t always seem true. Christmas poses a yearly challenge to those of us who have heard the story since we were children. After you have attended 20 or ... More

Why I Am Not a Pessimist - Ephesians 5:15-17 - Mar 18, 2009 - 1194

My text today is very short, only three verses. And the verses themselves are short. They are often overlooked because they are sandwiched between two passages that are very well known. As is often the case in the Bible, little verses say a lot. The question posed in the title comes from the middle ... More

Who is the Real Enemy? - Ephesians 6:12 - Apr 29, 2009 - 1198

Not long ago I received the following email:I am studying Ephesians 6 about the Armor of God & and there is one verse that I’m afraid I don’t get the full meaning of. It’s verse 12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the autho ... More

Is Jesus Really the Only Way to Heaven? - John 14:6 - Jun 17, 2010 - 1250

Kathleen Parker isn’t a big fan of Franklin Graham.She made that perfectly clear in her recent column criticizing the popular evangelist (and son of Billy Graham) for saying that Muslims need to be saved. Mr. Graham’s bold assertion got him removed as the speaker for the National Day of ... More
