Great Christians Series – Ephesians 3:20-21

Intro: Have you ever heard someone say; When I get out of school I am going to get a job with a 6 figure income, I am going to marry the pretties woman, have one boy and one girl and live in the Suburbs with the perfect two story wood frame dwelling, fenced in yard a pool and a sports car that anyone envy’s, and people will hear of my story from reading the Forbes magazine. Maybe you haven’t heard anyone say that, but there have been many wh...

03/22/15 The Beginning of The End!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, March 30, 2015, In : Sermon 
Worthy Walk Series! – Ephesians 6:19-24

Intro: Remember Paul Harvey the news commentator? He had a unique way of telling the news and bringing to light the events of the day. I have great memories of my honey moon and a story that Paul Harvey spoke of. Paul Harvey and Paul the Apostle had something in common; they both had a trademark statement in their closing remarks of their commentaries. Paul Harvey, between his opening remarks and his closing statements always ended by referring to “...

03/15/15 The Air I Breathe!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, March 16, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Ephesians 6:18

Intro: Prayer is air, without it you suffocate! To many Christians are gagging in their spiritual walk. Not enough pr-ayer. Because of my exposure to a lot of sick people in the church, I find myself sick more than I care to admit. I really can’t do much more than I already am with washing my hands and praying that I don’t get it! When I do get sick the coughing stage is always the worst. When I couch it weakens my whole body and I find myself gasp...

03/08/15 Alive and Active!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, March 9, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Ephesians 6:17

Intro: What is it that God has created in you? For whatever the reason, I will always remember the old Young Frankenstein Movie with Marty Felton and Gene Wilder. When I first saw this movie decades ago it was a time when the theater was the best way to watch a movie. There are several great scenes that still come to mind when I recall that movie. First of all it was hilarious, one of the scenes that made me laugh the most occurred when Marty Felton who...

03/01/15 Stepping Out - With Faith!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, March 2, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Ephesians 6:15-16

Intro: Have you ever stepped on something that you regretted later? Was it squishy, did it sting you, was it hot, or was it cold? Did it break, or did you twist an angle or hurt your knee, maybe your back went out again. So many things could be said about the step you just made! Or steps you are making …

The Bible tells us that when a person receives Christ, a key part of their walk with God is to step out on faith. “For I am not ashamed of the gos...

02-22-15 Trighteousness! (Truth & Reigteousness)

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, February 23, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Ephesians 6:13-14

Intro: Surgical Room, having the proper equipment. Would you say that it is crucial to have the correct equipment before you go into surgery?

It has been said that a soldier is no better than his equipment. Paul has told us about our enemy and about our energy. Now, he takes the time to speak concerning our equipment. He lets us know that we know all about our enemy. We are blessed with boundless energy and we have the best equipment that any army in...

02-15-15 Put On The Full Armor!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, February 16, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series - Ephesians 6:10-13

Intro: “Eye Exam” How often you hear someone say; you need your eyes examined. If you haven’t it is only a matter of time before you need to get your eyes examined. Whether you wear glasses or not sooner or later you will get your eyes examined. Probably most of you here today can relate. Karol and I recently had our eyes examined. The actual eye examine is fascinating, and the equipment that is used to check out your vision is quite high tech. Wh...

02/01/15 Do Service As To The Lord!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Ephesians 6:5-9

Intro: last week the worthy walk series took us into some uncomfortable waters, submission, loving your wife and avoiding the provoking of your children. This week is all about doing service as to the Lord: Imagine what the world would be like if everyone turned to the Lord, think about the economic relationships, world hunger, respect for all of mankind, yes it is starting to sound like a song: red and yellow black and white they our precious in His si...

01/18/15 Joined Together!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, January 19, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series - Ephesians 5:22-33

INTRO: So now the worthy walk leads us to walk in a spirit of submission and love. How much more is there to this worthy walk concept? God’s instructions are not grievous! If we walk down the path God has laid for us—if we do just what He says—we experience the most loving and peaceful, the richest and fullest life imaginable. This is doubly true for husband and wife, for they have the companionship of each other as well of the Lord.

Marriage is a...

01/04/15 I See the Light!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, January 5, 2015, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Week 20 (Ephesians 5:8-14)

Intro: The worthy walk series continues, we start off the new year by simply asking are you in the light or are you still living in the dark? Simple question hard to answer, WHY! No sarcasm intended; however, it is very hard to walk without legs, without any form of prosthetics or a wheel chair, or crutches…? It’s pretty much impossible. Interestingly enough there are people in the church wondering why they’re not walking. It is imposs...

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, January 5, 2015, In : Sermon 
Worthy Walk Series - Week 19 (Ephesians 5:1-7)

Intro: Most of us can remember playing the game follow the leader or Simon Says when we were growing up. That was a fun game and that is all it was, Paul wants the Church of Ephesus to KNOW following God is not a game where you can change the rules to please yourself. Following God has eternal rewards and eternal consequences. Following the leader has its requirements:

Text: Ephesians 5:1-7 (NKJV)

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, December 15, 2014, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series – Week 18 (Ephesians 4:25-32)

Intro: Commonality of Recipes & Clothes: The holiday season always brings the exchanging of Recipes. When a person clothes himself, he wants to be sure to put on the right clothes. If he dresses improperly and puts on clothes that clash and are unacceptable, he is unacceptable and rejected by most people. Most people avoid the person who is improperly dressed, for he embarrasses them. So it is with God. There are things that we are to put o...

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, In : Sermon 

Worthy Walk Series - Week 16 (Ephesians 4:7-16)

Text: Ephesians 4:7-16 (NKJV)

“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. 8 Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men." 9 Now this, "He ascended"--what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things. 11 And He Himsel...
