Metaphors Of The Word

God in His wisdom has explained His word in different ways. Phil Roberts with this sermon takes one of those different ways, the use of metaphors, as a means to help us understand God's word. Listening to this sermon will certainly help all of us.

Different Types Of People

God made each and every one of us yet we are all different. We realize the church is made up of different types of people but we need to also realize each member is important. This sermon shows how God's design all works together.

The Widow And Her Two Mites

One of the most helpful things about the teaching ability of the late Phil Roberts is how he looked at passages in the bible from all angles. That ability shines through in this sermon about something that's mentioned in God's word with only a sentence or two. Listen as we think about the widow that was motivated to give more than was expected. She apparently doesn't know Jesus is watching and it serves as a reminder that Jesus is watching us as well.

The Three Coats Of Joseph

Everyone, even little children, know the bible story about Joseph and the coat of many colors. The thing you may not realize, however, is that Joseph had two other coats. This sermon tells about the coat we all know about as well as his other two coats. An excellent study of the life of Joseph along with lessons we can apply to our own lives.

The Temptations Jesus Faced

The bible teaches that Jesus was tempted in all the same ways that we are. With that understanding we naturally try to focus on the period of time that Jesus was tempted in the wilderness. With this sermon by Phil Roberts, he guides us through a study that looks at the temptations from all angles and we come away with a better understanding.

The Suffering Of God

Have you ever given thought to the fact that God has feelings just the same as we do? He may not have a physical body but with this sermon by Phil Roberts we learn that God feels pain and suffering as well as other emotions. Thankfully, God feels love for us and joy but in addition, He also feels jealously and can become enraged. The more we know about God and the more we strive to become like Him, the closer to Him we'll be. We should all try to draw closer to God!

Two Prisoners - Two Storms

One of the interesting things about studying God's word is that, after some time, you start seeing differences and similarities between the various things God has revealed in the written word. This sermon, presented by Phil Roberts, serves as a great example.

The record of the things that happened to the prophet Jonah, who was a prisoner of his own hate against the Ninevites, and the apostle Paul, a prisoner of the Romans, both face terrible storms on the sea. A comparison of these two incidents make a very interesting and informative study.

The Ten Commandments

Several years before his death, Phil Roberts began an overview series of the Bible. Not all of the sermons in the series have been published but as a result of a request on the topic of the ten commandments, this sermon is presented here.

The volume of material to cover every aspect of all the commandments can't be contained in one sermon, but Phil with this sermon gives us a background and an overview of the commandments as a whole and the commandments individually. A very valuable sermon!

Three Types Of Prayer

Prayer is very important because it is pivotal when it comes to our relationship to God. Prayer draws us closer to God and is also an expression of devotion. The book of Psalms provides the perfect example of different types of prayer. In this sermon Jason Dickey uses the Psalms to demonstrate three different types of prayer.

The Pre-existence Of Christ

There are some that incorrectly say that Jesus was just a man and nothing more. We exist because we came from our parents and Jesus exists because He came from our God in heaven. The fact that Jesus existed prior to His birth is stated by Himself and by prophecy. Phil Roberts in this sermon from 1996 makes a case from the scriptures.

The Perfect Church

Is the church where you attend the perfect church? Due to the fact that a church is made up of so many different people, the probable conclusion would be there are no perfect churches. Phil Roberts, with this sermon from 1999, describes for us the perfect church.

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

Have you ever sat down and simply read about the life of Christ, the story of Jesus? After all, isn't Jesus the focal point of everything we should know and become? Too often we get tangled up in the details and as the old saying goes, "We can't see the forest for the trees!"

I'm sure most would agree with the idea that we all need a good overview of anything we study if we expect to get an accurate understanding. Phil Roberts, in this lesson from 1990, gives us an excellent overview.

The History Of Institutionalism

About fifty years ago, when I was just a child, there gradually came to be known two slightly different churches and both were named the Church of Christ. This sermon covers that history and shows why it's so important to apply strict rules of determining authority with regard to the practices we adopt in the congregations of the Lord's church.

Isaiah Sees The Glory Of Jesus

When you think of the word "glory", thoughts of grandeur often come to mind. It follows then, that when you think of the glory of Jesus the ultimate of grandeur should come to mind.

The First New Testament Gospel Sermon

Our last Podcast was the first sermon recorded in the Old Testament so I thought the logical next step is to post the first Gospel sermon recorded in the New Testament. This sermon was preached by the apostle Peter on Pentecost immediately after the establishment of the church.

Follow along as Phil Roberts explains in detail this very important sermon that was preached so many years ago yet has applications even for today.

Honor Your Father And Mother

Do you always honor your parents? Do your children always honor you? Each one of us, of course, has heard this commandment all our lives and we would all agree it's a practice that's not only appropriate but a matter of common courtesy.

The thing that makes this podcast so important is the fact that so many people don't realize the far reaching effects of this simple command - even more, the far reaching detrimental effects that can threaten the very fabric of our nation when this command is ignored.

This podcast is without a doubt a "must hear" sermon!

Images That Explain Baptism

Our podcast this week is an interesting approach to a familiar subject. The denominations in the religious world and the general public seem to have a difficult time understanding that baptism is not a "work" that if required would demand that salvation is something earned rather than being a gift of God. Salvation is a gift but baptism is not a work even though it is required.
To make this and other aspects of baptism easier to understand, God has given us images to demonstrate the fact that baptism has a greater importance than many people had previously believed.

Elders and the Early Writings

Our podcast this week is a little different from most sermons because it includes a well documented history lesson. Have you ever wondered what happened to the organization of the church that we read about in the New Testament and why it's so different from most churches in the religious world today?
With this sermon from 2002, Phil Roberts shows how the apostasy innocently began and although certain Christians were willing to even forfeit their lives for their understanding, a careful inspection of God's word shows they were wrong.

The Danger Of Overconfidence

There are several dangers that Christians face. Some of those dangers originate from our own selves. The danger of becoming over confident is one of those. God, of course, wants us to be confident but we should let that be an encouragement rather than a source of pride.
