Mercenary Christians

This message will disturb you. It was preached at an inner-city church where Glenn confronted the welfare, entitlement mentality that is a plague to the entire church. We want a handout from God, a faith that does not cost us. But the true faith is costly. In fact, it will cost you everything. In Acts 8:9-24 Glenn examines Simon, the epitome of a mercenary Christian who, in essence, sells himself to the highest bidder. Rebuked for his gross sin he is commanded to repent. A costly faith is the only true faith. It cost Jesus everything to give and the grace of God demands that it costs us everything to receive. Listen to this sermons and let Jesus transform your life.

Most Excellent Way

Using Paul’s teaching on love in 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 Glenn confronts the humanistic love that has defined the human race since Adam’s fall. Paul exquisitely defined the primary components of humanistic love and by doing so was able to define true love as defined by God. Why do marriages break down? Why are there church fights? Why are many people repulsed by some people who call themselves Christian? Because we live out a selfish, humanistic love that is destructive. Learn what true love is according to God’s definition and how we can live that out through God’s grace.

Obedience

Obedience is mandatory for anyone who claims to be a real Christian. Glenn presses this idea home in this sermon by pointing out that from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Revelation obedience is a nonnegotiable part of the faith. Disobedience brings judgment, obedience God blessing, the greatest of which is His nearness. Listen to this message on your knees and cry out to God to help you learn the joy of obeying our good and loving God.

The Blessings of Suffering

Suffering is a reality that we wish never existed.  We flee from its sight, are repulsed by its touch and sickened with its embrace.  Seemingly out of nowhere it assaults us as a venomous snake attempting to fill our hearts and minds with its deadly poison. It wraps itself around us, trying to squeeze the […]

The Men God Has Used by Horatius Bonar

Let us look for a little at the instruments and their success. Let us note their character and contemplate their success. They were men of like passions as we are, yet how marvelously blest in their labors! Whence, then, came their vast success? What manner of men were they? What weapons did they employ? THEY […]

Thou Shalt Not Whine

Once I received a gift from a friend that was meant as joke. It became one those gifts that keeps on giving, but not the way you normally would think. The gift was a small tapestry quoting what some humorously call the eleventh commandment, “Thou shalt not whine.” I decided to temporarily hang it in […]

Throne of Grace

Divine grace and the lordship of Christ are spiritual realities intricately interwoven to reveal a portion of the awe inspiring tapestry of the magnificence of God and His gift of salvation. The Hebrew writer penned, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to […]

Parasites

This sermon by Glenn will shake you. No watered down, wimpy message here. This is for those who want to be more than a conqueror, not for those who love and practice sin. Glenn will reveal how sin is the worst parasite that feeds upon the entirety of our lives. By contrasting Judas with Peter you will learn how both men sinned, but how one found victory through repentance and the other refusing the gift of repentance died in his sin and went to hell. Don’t let the parasite of sin be your ruin.

Voices

In each of our lives there are voices calling to us; demanding our attention, competing for our interests, luring our affections.  These voices come from within and without.  They are everywhere—in the city and country, among the rich and poor, the educated and uneducated, the young and old.  Relentlessly they tug and pull at us, […]

Radical Christianity

Since Jesus is radical, Biblical Christianity is radical. Glenn, addressing this issue, demonstrates that the faith Jesus gave the church is revolutionary in nature, not with the violence of the world, but through the laying down of our lives that others might be saved. There is a cost to discipleship. If we will not pay the price, then we cannot be His disciple. By listening to this message you will learn what it means to be a true Christian.

Ruin of a Christian

This sermon by Glenn Meldrum is about the historical character of Lot. Lot was a man of great compromise. The primary reason he lived a life of compromise is because he was a prayerless man. Prayer is the lifeblood of the Christian. If a believer ceases to be a person of prayer then he or she will spiritually die. Prayerless people not only ruin their own lives but are agents of hell by devastating the lives of others. This message will challenge you, confront you and bring you to your knees if you have ears to hear.

What Can the Righteous Do?

Glenn Meldrum takes his text for this sermon from Psalms 11. In this practical message Glenn addresses the psalmist statement, “When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” How are we to live when we see the world growing more corrupt by the day? You will learn the difference between the response of carnal people and that of men and women of faith. There is a vast difference between the two. You, too, can learn to be wise and know how to live in this present evil age.
