Sermons on Acts

Father’s Day 2019

I am very sorry for the poor audio feed on our Father’s Day video presentation. Please listen closely though. The content of this message is vital. The notes follow below. Our Restart Father’s Day Focus is to address two central motivations of all men. Ladies young and old – now get this – did you hear that? Two central motivations of all men; and no…

Share Your Hope

Why A Sermon on Sharing Hope? At Restart we follow the imperative of sharing our Faith from an application of the story of David and Goliath.  The passage is found in 1 Samuel 17, but let’s lean in on verse 40: David took his stick in his hand and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in the shepherd’s bag which he had, even in his pouch,…

Living “There”

Welcome to the Restart New Year’s Message Today I will address New Year’s resolutions in an effort to climb to Bible Ground and seek to live “There”.   When you think of it;  New Year’s Resolutions are really a compilation of Stops and Starts.   I have noted some below: Stops Drugs/Drinking Swearing Cheating Self Indulgence Pridefulness…

Righteousness and Persecution

Conflict on the Jesus Path The eighth installment in our learning from the Sermon on the Mount states: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.   Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in…

The Bedrock Church

What makes a Godly Church? The Family at Restart Church researched this question.  We firmly believe that this verse in Acts shows the way. They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer – Acts 2:42 Every act, intention, and effort of Restart is focused within the five guidelines above.…

Those Who Mourn

The second Beatitude The word mourn in the Bible is very deep and anguished filled.   Check out this example taken from the time when Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and came in deceit to tell their father that Joseph had been killed…. So Jacob tore his clothes, and put sackcloth on his loins and mourned for his son many days. Then all his sons and all…

Child and Son

What is in a Name? When was the last time you opened a Bible with intent to mine out the Names and Titles God gives Himself?   This buried treasure offers rich insights into His character, power, and kind intention.  Our ancient friend Isaiah (8th century B.C.) penned a verse about the Anointed One – the Messiah (or Christ) which unearths one of the richest veins of…

Get Right with God

Thank you for stopping by Restart! Today we will uncover an important characteristic of those who wish to follow Jesus; specifically the habit of routine self-assessment. We join Daniel in this vital activity. After a concentrated season of intentional (and frankly courageous) use of his spiritual warfare toolbox (prayer, supplication, fasting, sackcloth, and ashes)…

Play Angry about Pride and Vanity

The call to Play Angry stems from the idea that Believers often live unintentional about seeking Bible ground to deal with life. At Restart church we are not going to live like that anymore. We are going to focus ourselves and Play Angry. We are going to use spiritual strength to meet and overwhelm the (already defeated in Christ) enemy on the battleground of our mind,…
