All Sermons: Practical Life

Maximize life! God knows best how to live it. Here are answers to everything from cremation to financial success, from tattoos to virginity, from swearing to marital sex, from job promotions to charity, and much more. As a Christian, God created you and bought you, so you are twice His. You owe Him everything. He jealously demands your affection and resents any flirting with the world. Most today love pleasure more than holiness, but the Bible teaches holiness that brings lasting pleasures of all kinds, both here and in heaven.

Choices Two (2)

God's choices are all perfect for your good - if you respond properly. He deserves your greatest praise, thanksgiving, and trust. He managed the choices of others pertaining to you. Thank others for good choices; forgive them their poor choices. Your choices will bring reward or punishment. Learn wisdom.

Dogmatic Simplicity (2)

Absolute truth exists, no matter denials. God wrote absolute truth in the Bible. We do not fear being wrong - we pray for further light to gladly acccept redirection. We hate error; we name names. We keep truth simple like the Bible does. Intelligence and education are handicaps to truth, not helpers to it.


2/11/2024 PM
Choices Two (1)

What you are today is the result of infinite choices made by God, others, and you. Can you trust the God of choices and learn to make choices that please Him? He uses our choices in many ways, and you can rejoice in what He done with others' choices and your own choices. Trust Him. Praise Him.


2/11/2024 AM
Dogmatic Simplicity (1)

Dogma = Doctrine, and Dogmatic = intense conviction about truth that will not tolerate differences. Though man chose lies in Eden, God revealed truth in the Bible. He expects us to hold it loyally and never compromise with anyone for any variation. Absolute truth is real and to be vigorously defended.

Should Christians Tithe?

Is tithing a Christian duty? Indeed it is, and more so; current dissenting opinions about tithing lack biblical foundation. Although the New Testament does not explicitly mandate tithing, it does enjoin believers to give. Furthermore, like other practices, the details can be found within the Old Testament.

Sermon on the Mount Lessons (11)

Matthew 7:6 is a lesson from most ignore, for they reject Jesus' criticism of fools and scorners, which He called dogs and pigs. Such men do not deserve truth, and Jesus taught us to protect the truth from them and to protect ourselves from their violent tendencies against anyone correcting them.


8/13/2023 AM
Sermon on the Mount Lessons (8)

Memorize the five parts of prayer. Forgive everyone; flush all offences. Fast modestly - not like Catholics, who make a public show during Lent to defy Jesus.

7/23/2023 PM
Sermon on the Mount Lessons (3)

The width and depth of this Sermon has no peer. God gave our Lord great wisdom to declare God's will for us (5:14-28).

7/9/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (22)

How can we lose VCL? Allow funks or moods to destroy fruitbearing. Allow bitterness that gives Satan leverage in your life. Talk folly to yourself instead of talking faith. Allow anxiety, which is opposite of faith, peace, and joy. Accept religious routine and lose passionate first love of being hot for Christ.


6/25/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (21)

God has not only told us what to do but also how to do it - He wants cheerful givers and happy, joyful Christians. Kings required it of servants; we should be constantly thrilled to serve Him. You cannot neglect nutrition - Bible reading, prayer, preaching, and godly music and friends to grow and bear fruit.


6/25/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (20)

VCL is by faith, not feelings, so emotions are ruled to follow faith, not lead or control your life. Entertainment today of television, movies, Internet, social media, magazines, etc., must be carefully limited. At all times Jesus Christ must be constantly the main goal, for character without Him is nothing.


6/18/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (19)

VCL is to be accepted by God now and to hear, Well done, thou good and faithful servant, when we meet him. You can lose VCL by distracting ambitions, indulging in spiritual vacations, aim at nothing, poorly manage time, procrastinate conviction, and lose your first love of God and Jesus Christ.


6/11/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (18)

We reviewed eight ways VCL can be lost - these were covered in sermons #13-#16. Your life ambition(s) are crucial to success or not - for ambition in other areas, no matter how noble, distract from the war. Paul even warned about marriage, which should cause fear of other distractions.


6/11/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (17)

Review is necessary after a break of several weeks. Hearing truth is not enough, but hearing, retaining, and obeying. God has promised great blessings to overcomers. The key is daily focus and intentional living to obey and glorify God in everything you do, rather than let life happen and control you.


5/28/2023 PM
Twelve Facts for Christians (6)

The world explodes with information, but they are no closer to truth. Beware of the distraction of inputs by electronics in your life. Do not tempt God by questioning Him, provoking Him by presumptuous sins, or taking foolish risks. Prayer changes things and should be a main part of your life.


5/28/2023 AM
Twelve Facts for Christians (5)

Because God created you and saved you by a great price, you are not your own - you are His in every part of your life. He demands all your love and then for you to love others He puts in your life. You should never surmise about what God is doing in another's life, for you do not know His infinite will or them.


5/21/2023 PM
Twelve Facts for Christians (4)

Safety in life brings everything back to the Bible - all thoughts, ideas, choices, plans, events, etc. It should be taught daily to children. Your ideas can never be better. Period. Success in life before God and men is by fruit, not results, feelings, or words. Fruit is identified in the Bible. Abound in it.


5/21/2023 AM
Twelve Facts for Christians (3)

The sin Adam chose in Eden and we choose daily pervades all parts of life, and it should be identified to avoid misjudging things, persons, relationships. God is greater than man and can do what He wants with your life, like He did Job. We should never blame, complain, or even question Him. He is God.


5/14/2023 PM
Twelve Facts for Christians (2)

Above and Beyond Slides

Great lovers of God did more than bare duty worshiping and serving Him. Why would you stop at what is expected or minimum? He did far more than reasonable to adopt us. Let us look for extra ways we can delight in Him and glorify Him like David did planning and paying for Solomon's temple.


4/16/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (16)

Music is the powerful language of the soul. David played the harp to heal Saul's devil-afflicted soul. You do not have the right to any music. You must glorify God and use music that will lift your spirit toward heaven. Measure all music by its fruit in producers, performers, listeners, and churches using it.


4/16/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (15)

Recall seven reasons why God left us here. Average Christian is not VCL; most churches are not. How can you lose VCL? You can choose carnal, foolish, worldly friends. Or you can become too dependent on any relationship, so that you will compromise knowingly or not to keep the relationship.


3/26/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (14)

You lose VCL by choking on circumstances. God arranged each part of your life. Accept it and live above it, not under it. Guard use of alcohol, lest it hurts your efforts and reputation for Christ. Do not let past failures defeat you. The best of men fall, but they rise up to engage again. Triumph today!


3/26/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (13)

Why did God give the ministry? To help you live victoriously. What is VCL? It is God's best for your life. How can you lose it? Choose to be a loner and lose the necessary benefit of your local church. Or you can rest on your laurels, when you should be running the rest of your race even better and faster.


3/19/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (12)

Keep going. Let nothing stop or slow you. Perseverance is faithfulness. Reject every weight that might slow you down, even if it is not sin. Moderation balances all aspects of life to maximize fruitfulness. Get zealous, for intensity helps. Habits can help by daily duty. If you fall, repent and get back up.


3/19/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (11)

VCL requires strategic effort to pray like Hezekiah and Nehemiah - Remember me. It is an earthly engagement, so reject monastic desire for heaven. It is not legal righteousness; it is your personal righteousness by obedience to secure God's approval. Evil will come, but rise above it.


3/12/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (10)

VCL is more than bare faith - it is delight in God with great fervency and zeal. The world pursues its goals, like sports, with great zeal, and we should have similar zeal for Him and His kingdom. Life is often too busy and chaotic for intentional VCL, so you must slow down and simplify your life to succeed.


3/12/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (9)

Paul knew he had fought, finished, and kept the faith. So were Job, David, Timothy and several women. Paul taught regeneration provided the power for you to do so. VCL is not ordinary - it is exceptional. It is living with the kingdom as your priority and it is measured by the heart and souls helped.


2/26/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (7)

To be an overcomer, you should look to the reward like Jesus did. You must guard your inputs vigilantly, you should be the most thankful person, you should pray for it, and you should look to the effect. Remember that your defeated Christian life or a joyful, winning one will affect all those around you.


2/19/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (6)

To be victorious you must believe that God forgives easily, quickly, and fully. Any ideas to the contrary are sinfully wrong and will defeat and discourage you. Look to Jesus as your example going before, see difficulties as opportunities like Job and Paul did, and get competitive to be the best in God's sight.


2/19/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (5)

A victorious Christian life is confident living, kingdom building, and intentional living. It is necessary to view each night and day, in that order, with the clear goal to obey Christ fully. Your greatest enemy is yourself, and you must force all feelings to follow faith, no matter how powerful they may seem to be.


2/12/2023 PM
Victorious Christian Living (4)

A victorious Christian is a growing one with fruit rather than funks. One of our greatest enemies is bad thinking. Your thoughts are not helpful to serve God better. Too many of them are foolish and sinful. You must hate any funks and not try to excuse them by ruling your thoughts to choose godliness.


2/12/2023 AM
Victorious Christian Living (3)

Key facts to remember for victorious living are why God left us here with a sinful flesh in a sinful world. There are seven broad reasons He did so, and they are quite helpful to live intentional lives for God's glory and His approval and rewards. His reasons are also our goals for living right.

Chief tools of the devil are anger, bitterness, and not forgiving others, especially spouses. God wants his children happy, healthy, and confident to meet Him in the Day of Judgment, but the BAD devil will destroy all three blessings.


6/6/2021 PM
War for Your Soul #6 Slides

The devil wants you BAD ... bitter, arrogant, deceitful. By bitterness, God and the Bible mean any thought, word, or deed tending in the direction of murder, for Satan has been a murderer from the start. Hate this B sin in your heart.


6/6/2021 AM
War for Your Soul #5 Slides

Keep in mind when studying the devil's wiles - Jesus has and will yet defeat Him. He cannot do anything God did not plan and direct. He wants you to be BAD, which is bitter, arrogant, and deceitful. These are three of his chief wiles.

War for Your Soul #4 Slides

Paul taught two actions for you after putting on the whole armor of God. First, you must stand like Greek wrestlers did and not be taken down at all. Second, you must rightly pray in the intense and thorough way Paul described.

War for Your Soul #3 Slides

The devil looks for weaknesses to tempt you. He knew Jesus was hungry from long fasting. What habits do you have that leave you exposed to the devil? This is the first line of resisting him - discipline in all parts of life to send him away.


5/23/2021 PM
War for Your Soul #2 Slides

The devil is like a roaring lion - a terrible danger - trying to devour you. He is a destroyer. Think Lot, Samson, Solomon. The Bible records him troubling believers from the start. We will skip the national or sensational to stress the personal.


5/23/2021 AM
War for Your Soul #1 Slides

A diabolical fiend wants to destroy you by keeping you from being a fruitful Christian. He has been defeated legally and vitally by Jesus Christ, and he will soon be cast into the lake of fire. But he can mess up your life unless you rightly resist.

3/28/2021 PM
Destructive Decision Making

Men differ greatly in the prosperity or success they achieve. A major factor affecting them is how they make decisions. Hasty and ignorant decision making must end, for it truly hurts progress, though fools can hardly learn to do otherwise.


3/28/2021 AM
Paul’s Doctrine of Marriage (2 sermons)

Corinth was a lascivious city of the Roman world, and the church there asked Paul about marriage, sex, divorce, etc. His inspired answers for their situation have much wisdom for all Christians that want to know God's will about marriage.


3/21/2021 PM
War for Truth

There has always been violent opposition between the wicked and the righteous, Satan and God. The devil and world seek to rid earth of God's truth, so we must learn, defend, and promote it, especially in church and families.


2/3/2021 PM

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Angst has gripped Christians due to President Trump's defeat. Much of it is due to conservative news sites, which intend angst and addiction. But Christians keep the Bible's rules for politics and trust God and Jesus cheerfully for total world victory.

What Do You Glory In?

The LORD tells us not to glory in might, wisdom, or riches but that we know and understand Him. How much do you glory in His Word? Do things of God truly delight your soul?

The Most Influential Member

Your tongue is far more powerful than you think! Men rise and fall in the sight of Jehovah, by their careful and diligent management of it. Godly men know the Christian walk is successfully navigated by directing their speech, rather than their feet. Have you mastered this unruly evil?


12/2/2020 AM
Isms Creeping Into The Church (3) Slides

Trust the God of Politics

10/25/2020 AM
Cleave Unto the Lord

Persecution drove the gospel north to Antioch of Syria. Barnabas came to see the Gentile converts and exhort them to cleave to Christ. He knew the threats to their zeal, which are similar to our own. Let us run to Christ and never let go.


9/27/2020 PM
Poetic Books of the Bible

The Bible is a library covering every part of your life. God gave us all we need to know for ultimate pleasure and profit in life. In the middle of the Bible are five special books, Job - Song of Solomon. Do you fully value them? Do you read them?


9/27/2020 AM
In a Crooked and Perverse Nation

America is a mess in 2020. It is crooked and perverse like Philippi was when Paul wrote them. What should a Christian do? Paul gave us clear marching orders from the Lord Jesus Christ. They are found in Philippians 2:1-18. Rejoice in truth!


9/20/2020 PM
Froward Spouses

Romans 1:18-25

God's wrath is coming from heaven against the wicked. As Paul wrote, He gave all men opportunities to know Him, glorify Him, thank Him, and obey Him. They did not and instead invented lies, so He blinded and rewired them to sexual folly.


7/26/2020 PM
Jesus the Friend of Sinners

Pharisees despised Jesus for loving repentant sinners. He came to save such sinners. Learn to hate the vile spirit of Pharisaism in yourself or in others. Jesus will never cast out a sinner coming to Him. He loves big sinners, knowing they love more.

Folly, Truth, and Glory of Baptism

Baptism according to the Bible is a wonderful event full of meaning and value, but it has been terribly corrupted by many heresies.
