Sermon Text for Sunday, June 22, 2008

Here's the sermon text for this Sunday's message:
Matthew 7:1-5
[1] Do not judge, or you too will be judged. [2] For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. [3] Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? [4] How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? [5] You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

For His Glory!

Father's Day Sermon Text (6/15/08)

This Sunday, June 15 is Father's Day. Sunday morning I will be sharing a message based on the life of Stephen from the book of Acts. Stephen was a man who made a tremendous impact upon the lives of people in his time. Men today are able to make a difference when they exhibit the spiritual qualities of servanthood, courage, and compassion.

Sermon Text: Acts 6:8-12; 7:59-60

[8] Now Stephen, a man full of God's grace and power, did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people. [9] Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called)—Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as the provinces of Cilicia and Asia. These men began to argue with Stephen, [10] but they could not stand up against his wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke. [11] Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, "We have heard Stephen speak words of blasphemy against Moses and against God." [12] So they stirred up the people and the elders and the teachers of the law. They seized Stephen and brought him before the Sanhedrin.

[59] While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." [60] Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.

For His Glory!
