    “A Matter of Life and Death” Final Message Facing the Giants What it would be like if a man came riding a horse down Ridge Road this morning announcing that He was God.

    Contributed by Brien Sims on Jan 16, 2008
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,225 views

    This story is about someone who fears death because they don’t know what’s next, someone who says they know Christ but fears death, and someone who lived for Christ and knows where they are headed.

    How often do we as humans think about our mortality? Generally something has to jog our brains a bit before we being to really contemplate the seriousness of life and death. Maybe we see a horrific accident on the news, a national disaster such as hurricane Katrina, or even now an act of terror ...read more

    Now I believe that there are four bona-fide instances of lip-licking instances found in the Scriptures.

    LICKING THE LIPS The Bible has much to say about the lips. Proverbs 10:19 “In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” The more a man talks, the more mistakes he will make Wisdom is manifest in what we don’t say, rather than in what we ...read more

    based on 115 ratings
     | 2,599 views

    When tragedy strikes where should we look? What would Jesus say to our hearts if we have ears to hear? Where would He have us focus our attention?

    This Sermon urges us to consider the brevity of human life and the little control that we have over its span.
