Sermons on Family

Cover Your Head (Honor Your Head)

            This morning, we continue in our study of I Corinthians, and it’s a relief to be out of those difficult sections, where Paul was talking about things like church discipline and sex and lawsuits and divorce and remarriage and meat offered to idols, and now we can finally get into something much less controversial…

Undivided Attention

We continue in our study of I Corinthians and, this morning, we’re going to finish out chapter 7.  Last week, we saw that Paul had something to say to those who are single, those who are married to Christians and those who are married to non-Christians, which I think pretty much covers all of us. …

Marriage Advice in a Nutshell

This morning, we pick back up in our study of I Corinthians, and we’re in the middle of chapter 7 where Paul is discussing some matters related to singleness, marriage, divorce and remarriage.             If you were here a couple of weeks ago, you may recall that I shared some advice with you from a…

A Letter to Mom

            I heard recently about a mother who put her son to bed on the night before his fifth birthday. And she was trying to communicate the whole birthday idea to him.  She said, “Kevin, this is the last night that you will be 4 years old.  Do you understand that?”             Kevin was trying…

Portrait of a Godly Father

This morning, I want to take a break from our series “Our Journey With Jesus” because as I’m sure you’re all aware, today is Father’s Day. I heard about one little boy who was asked to define Father’s Day and he said, “It’s just like Mother’s Day except you don’t spend as much on the…
