January 16, 2021

    The History of..  In God We Trust   You’re only going to get one verse of scripture tonight, and that will be at the very end of the lesson.  But I think the lesson will be interesting, and maybe informative, and hopefully, profitable anyway.   The motto, IN GOD WE TRUST, was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil…

January 16, 2021

      Blessed be the “Little Ones”    I’m going to be reading several verses of scripture today, and all of them except the first one, will contain the words of Jesus.

How Do You Know If You Are Born Again ?

January 10, 2021

    Are You Born Again ?   In a biblical discussion, one gentleman asked this question;  “How do you know if you are born again?”  One of his points, and I suppose you could say he considers it a “problem”, is that we can’t simply go to any one verse in the bible, which tells us exactly HOW to be born again. But of course, that’s the way it…

Standing At The Gate

January 2, 2021

          The Bible speaks about a few different Gates.   And today I’d like us to consider Three of those Gates.   First of all, the bible speaks about the “gates of hades”, in  Mathew 16, verse 18.   In that verse, Jesus said;  “..And upon that rock I will build My church, and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it.”   Another way of saying that…

Let me read to you what someone recently wrote..     Yes, I believe it is time to take a knee.  It is time to take a knee and thank the Creator for the food and clothing we take for granted.  It is time to bow and give thanks to the Almighty for the freedom to vote and preach our convictions.  It is time to drop down and bless the name…

Grow Strong in the Lord!

    Swiftly We’re Turning Life’s Daily Pages   That’s what the song says;  “Swiftly we’re turning, life’s daily pages.  Swiftly the hours, are changing to years.”  Amazing isn’t it?  How “swiftly” time goes by!   The hours, turn into years.  One hour, you’re a child, playing hide-and-seek, and the next hour, you’re wondering where your childhood went! But each day, is just a page in your life, isn’t it?  And…

The Sweet Words Of The Lord

October 24, 2020

      How Sweet are the Lord’s Words !   The bible says in  Hebrews 11, verse 6;  “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”   But just “believing” in God, isn’t good enough.
