Little Things Are BIG With God

2015-08-30_coverJerry McNamara’s August 30 message, “Little Things Are BIG With God” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

08/30/15 SUMMARY:  Jerry teaches on how small things can make a BIG difference in our lives.  Whether it is our tongue, our money or our faith; it’s not the size that matters so much as where we plant it and how we use it.  The value of being in a small group is highlighted as one way to apply the “small is really big with God” principle.

08/23/15 SUMMARY:  We conclude our summer series looking at John’s Gospel with the final ‘I AM’ statement of Jesus.  This one is unique in that it is the only statement where Jesus also declares who and what we are.  Jesus wants us to have His joy so He is clear to define our dependent relationship with Himself .  How joyful and fully alive we will be as we do as Jesus instructs us!

This sermon is part 13 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

08/09/15 SUMMARY:  John 14:6 might be one of the most abused, mis-used, and misunderstood statements of Jesus. As Jerry shares, can we see it and learn to use it as the gift Jesus intended? If we do, if we let Jesus be our way, have His way in our life, and lead the way, we discover the best life possible!

Open The Eyes Of The Blind!

2015-08-02_titleThe .mp3 audio file for Emeritus Pastor Allen Bauer’s August 2 message, “Open The Eyes Of The Blind!” is now available.


This sermon is part 12 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

08/02/15 SUMMARY:  No one before Jesus claimed to heal a person born blind.  This blind man that Jesus heals, takes a journey from physical and spiritual blindness to “full” sight. The Pharisees opposed the miracle because it was done on the Sabbath.  The Pharisees felt that Jesus had broken their “man-made” law.  They would therefore not accept Jesus as the Messiah and remained spiritually blind.

Questions

Read the book of Job.  How does this show us that God is not trying to cause problems in our life?  Why do bad things happen to good people?

 Read Ezekiel 18:20.  What does this say about how we are not responsible for the sins of others?  Why is this significant?

 Read 1 Peter 2:2. How are you craving to grow in your faith?  What steps have you taken to accomplish your goals of growing closer to God each day?

 Read 1 Peter 4:14. Sometimes insults for the faith come in subtle ways. Have you ever been criticized for your faith? What did you do?

Are You Living THE Life?

2015-07-27_titleThe .mp3 audio file for Senior Pastor Jerry McNamara’s July 26 message, “Are You Living THE Life? (‘I AM #5)” is now available.


This sermon is part 11 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

07/26/15 SUMMARY: Zombies are all the rage in pop culture because the “undead” seems to live for nothing more than talking life from others.  But we, too are only “half alive” if we haven’t come to the point of living by believing in Jesus.  Learn how intentionally answering (and living our answer) to Jesus’ question in John 11: 26 can change our lives.


GOING FURTHER  (More from “Are You Living THE Life” at Fishers)

Questions

Read Matthew 16:13-16.  Jerry taught this is THE most important question we will ever answer.  Who do YOU say Jesus is?  Does your answer show through in your life (for a reference point see Luke 6:43-46)?  As Jerry taught, your answer to this question shapes your eternity!

Read John 11:24-26.  Jerry also taught that this question, the one posed to Martha is the second-most important question we will ever answer–because this answer will shape our daily life and choices.  Do you believe Jesus is The resurrection and THE life?  Can you say that you live your everyday life by the compass of believing in Jesus?  What do you think would be different if you “lived by believing in Jesus” rather than merely seeking His help when things go wrong?

Write or pray a prayer where you share your answers to these questions.  Ask Jesus to guide you as you live by believing in Him.  Also, pray about and bring to Jesus any part of your life–your hope, a relationship, stuck in a job–that feels “dead” and in need of resurrection.

The No-Obstacles God

2015-07-20_titleThe .mp3 audio file for Senior Pastor Jerry McNamara’s July 19 message, “The No-Obstacles God (Miraculous Sign #5)” is now available.


This sermon is part 10 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

07/19/15 SUMMARY: Watching Jesus walk on water–His fifth miraculous sign–we celebrate again that we have a God who knows no obstacles, and empowered by Jesus we discover how we can overcome one our greatest obstacles: fear.  Because of His love Jesus has crossed water, our sin and even death for you! Be willing to let Him in!


GOING FURTHER  (More from “The No-Obstacles God” at Fishers)

Questions

Read John 6:16-21.  When the disciples saw Jesus they were frightened of Him more than the storm they faced–how has fear twisted your perspective?  What has fear stopped you from doing?  Jesus said to His disciples, “It’s Me! Take courage!”  What truth from Jesus (a Bible verse or promise) can you hold onto this week to strengthen your courage?  The disciples were willing to let Jesus into their boat and then their storm end.  What circumstance are you facing that has been overwhelming, but now you are willing to let Jesus into?

Write or pray a prayer of your thankfulness and share one thing you will change don’t let fear be an obstacle this week!

I AM The Good Shepherd

2015-07-12_coverThe .mp3 audio file for Pastor Allen Bauer’s July 12 message, “I AM The Good Shepherd (‘I AM’ #4)” is now available.


This sermon is part 9 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

07/12/15 SUMMARY:  Our series, looking at John’s seven miraculous signs and seven “I AM” statement comes to the fourth ‘I AM’ statement: “I AM the Good Shepherd.” In the third ‘I AM’ statement, Jesus described Himself as a gate or door, protecting His sheep (all of us).  Now in “I AM the Good Shepherd” Jesus is saying He will do more than protect; He willingly sacrifices HIS life for ours so we can have His GOOD life!

Note: you might find a look at today’s live outline or the worship folder can be helpful to review the teaching points from “I AM The Good Shepherd” and to answer the following questions: 

Questions

Read John 10:14In John 10:14, Jesus states “I know my sheep.” That means Jesus knows you–including all the wrong that you’ve done or said–and STILL chose to lay His life down for you. What one thing Jesus “knows” about you (one past sin or pattern such as angry words) that you are amazed He could forgive?

Write or pray a prayer of your thankfulness and share one thing you will change as you follow your Good Shepherd this week.

The Feeding–What Jesus Already Has In Mind

2015-07-05_coverThe .mp3 audio file for Pastor Allen Bauer’s July 5 message, “The Feeding Of The 5000″ is now available.


This sermon is part 8 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and wa
s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

07/05/15 SUMMARY:  Our series looking at John’s seven miraculous signs and seven “I AM” statement comes to the fourth miraculous sign: the feeding of 5000 with just five loaves and two fish.  Though our resources (and our faith) may be small, Jesus’ are without limit!  Jesus already knows what He has in mind to do through what you will trust Him enough to offer!


GOING DEEPER (More from “Feeding The 5000″ at Fishers)

Note: you might find a look at today’s live outline or the worship folder can be helpful to review the teaching points from “Feeding The 5000″ and to answer the following questions: 

Questions

Read Matthew 14:13; Mark 1:35; Luke 4:42.  Many times Jesus went to a quiet (solitary) place to spend time in worship and prayer.  What does that say to us? Where and when is your solitary time with the Father?

Read Nehemiah 9:17-19; Psalm 51:1; Psalm 86:15; Psalm 119:156; Ephesians 4:32.  How has God shown you compassion?  If God is compassionate to us what does that mean for us showing compassion to others? Make a plan for the next few weeks on how you can demonstrate God’s compassion to others.

Read 1 Corinthians 12.  God has given each of us spiritual gifts.  Jesus used the gift of the little boy and multiplied it.  How can you use the gifts to bring glory to God? Why is it important that we each use our gifts for the good of the “body” (church) of Christ? If someone isn’t using their gifts what happens to them and the “body” of Christ?

Read Matthew 6:33.  How are you seeking God’s kingdom and the righteousness won by Christ?

s offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

06/28/15 SUMMARY:  Our series looking at John’s seven miraculous signs and seven “I AM” statement comes to the third “I AM” statement of Jesus, where Jesus says in John 10:9 “I AM the Door [Gate].”   Jesus both guards us and leads us safely into the best life possible!

Note: you might find a look at today’s live outline or the worship folder can be helpful to review the teaching points from “I AM the Door” and to answer the following questions: 

Questions

Read Job 31:32; Psalm 24:7; Psalm 141:3.  Why do you think the scriptures use a variety of metaphors for a door?

Read Exodus 12:22. How is the Passover and the placing of the lamb’s blood on the doorway a precursor to Jesus blood shed on the cross as our ultimate sacrifice?

Read 1 Peter 5:8.  Have you ever been attacked by the devil and temptation? How have you overcome it?

Read Rev. 3:20. When have you heard Jesus knocking on the door of your life?  What did you do?

Read Psalm 23.  How is this psalm like Jesus being the “Door”?  How does God protect us and guide us?
