  • I Know History; I Do Not Know Myself Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 4, 2002
    based on 31 ratings
     | 5,651 views

    It is one thing to know history and theology; it is another entirely to understand our own hearts. Job’s pilgrimage into self-understanding led to self-hatred, but in Christ that can be redeemed.

    I’ll ask you to repeat with me this wonderful, ringing affirmation from the New Testament: But I am not ashamed, for I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to him. I know. I know the one in whom I have put my ...read more

    Why is it that we don’t share our faith in Christ more? Maybe Jonah can shed some light on the subject. Learn 5 attitudes that keep us from reaching others from his life.

    This Ain’t No Fish Story! I want to tell you a story this morning about a fish. But it’s anything but a “fish story”. Most of us can probably remember the story of “Jonah & the Whale” from our Sunday School days, but maybe now that we’re all grown up, we kind of put it in the same category ...read more

    Do you know anyone who just can’t get a break in life? Do you know someone who seems to resolve one major crisis only to be thrust into yet another? This study presents us with just such a person. Her name? Michal, the youngest daughter of king Saul.

    Introduction: Do you know anyone who just can’t get a break in life? Do you know someone who seems to resolve one major crisis only to be thrust into yet another? You know the kind of person I’m referring to here, the underdog, one we feel sorry for, one we want to reach out to. Do you ...read more

  • I Know You Are Watching Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 10, 2002
    based on 29 ratings
     | 2,861 views

    When we consider that God is watching us, we may ask, as Job did, whether He is watching us to hurt us, to humiliate us, or to rescue us. Actually He is watching us in love to empower us.

    “I can’t let you out of my sight for one minute.” How many parents here have ever said that? “I can’t let you out of my sight for one minute.” How many have said it at least a thousand times? You said it to a small child, bent on doing something that would hurt. You said it to an ...read more

    In this lesson, we are going to study a lady of great character and intelligence – her name is Abigail. All we know about her is summed up in this one chapter, yet she comes through as one of the most notable women in the Old Testament!

    Introduction: The Bible is full of great stories!

    This is sermon one of seven on the value of being broken before God. This sermon is a study of Job.

    When we truly believe what God has said, we will watch him work in his time, for his glory and we will be amazed!

Although the promise of a son was very difficult to believe from a human perspective, the fulfillment of God’s promise was sure. You ...read more

    Gideon asked, "If the Lord is with us, why did this happen?" I believe his answer today is, "I AM with you!"

    I. Many are asking the same question today Gideon asked then: "Lord, if you are with us, why did this happen?" A. The answer then had already been given: because of the sin of the people (6:8-10). That was then. B. One prominent preacher went on national TV recently to interpret Sept. ...read more
