Believers are Worshippers

/ Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-46 020421AM The heartbeat of God’s Word is worship. Today Jesus defines believers as WORSHIPPERS! So the driving message of salvation is worship. Jesus tells us the only thing God seeks is worship. So, the purpose of salvation is worshiping the God of Heaven. The Scriptures open in Genesis with God walking and talking with […]

Like the Woman at the Well

Tagged With: / Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-45 020414AM This morning please open with me to the woman at the well. In John 4 Jesus has a fascinating talk with a most unlikely candidate for His ministry. No one could have stood in greater[1] contrast to Nicodemus than this woman. He was a Jew, she was a Samaritan, a race that the […]

Snakes, Sinners and the Savior

How Does God Help Us Grow?

/ Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-38 041024AM Most of us long to have something from our earthly existence — that will endure. Life is so fragile, time is so fleeting, and things are so temporal.

Christ Abides in My Attitudes

/ Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-31 040725AM This morning God expects fruit in the life of His children. That fruit comes from a good heart. That good heart is made good by God in a process called the new birth. We all were born bearing fruit, only it was bad fruit – that is why God saved us, He wanted […]

The Good Heart Bears Fruit

/ Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-29 040711AM God has a big plan for you and me; He wants us to make something out of our time. Time, like electricity, flows around us and remains unseen and useless — unless it is captured and harnessed into usefulness. What does God call time in our lives that is harnessed and used and […]

The Crowded Heart

Jesus started the day teaching inside a home (Mark 3.20-21) and was approached by His own family who tried to “arrest” Him and drag Him back to Nazareth so they could ‘take care of Him’. Then He was attacked by the religious leaders (Mark 3.22-30) who said He […]

Is There Another Way to God–through Mary?

Tagged With: / Master's Message-Disciples Path

MMG-15 020224AM What happens when you preach the gospel from the Gospels to lost sinners? Does it work any more? I mean does the gospel impact lives like it did in the world of Christ and the Apostles? Sometimes it seems that the Roman World of Bible times that Jesus and Paul lived in 20 […]
