Edification Or Gratification ?

January 19, 2019

      Do You attend Worship to be Edified, or to be Gratified?   I think a lot of people attend worship for the wrong reasons.  First of all, our worship is something that we are giving God.  It’s not something we’re supposed to be giving to ourselves.  Jesus reminds us in  Luke 4, verse 8,  that “It is written;  You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve…

O Worship The King !

January 17, 2019

    It Feels Good To Worship God!   Some things just make us happy, don’t they?  And for a Christian, it should make us happy, to worship God.   If you love God, why wouldn’t you be glad to worship Him?  Why wouldn’t it feel good to pray to Him?  Why wouldn’t it feel good to be with God?  Of course, we don’t have to be in a worship…

But The Bible Doesn’t Say We Can’t Do It

December 20, 2018

        Bible Authority   The subject of bible authority, is one of the most important subjects that there is when it comes to our faith, and to our conduct as Christians.  But most people don’t realize and appreciate, just how important it really is.  I think that one of the reasons for that is because most people don’t take individual verses and passages seriously enough.  People read…

Humanism; Death For The Soul

December 1, 2018

      Human Ignorance Abounds   Proverbs 1, verse 7  says;  “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.  But fools despise wisdom and instruction.”  Some people actually despise God’s instructions.  And the majority of the rest, simply don’t feel they have any need for it.  It’s not that people don’t want to have knowledge, it’s just that all they want is worldly knowledge.  They don’t want…

Who Will Win The Battle ?

November 24, 2018

    There’s a Battle Going On!   There’s a battle going on, but it’s not a physical battle.  It’s a battle between good and evil.  Some people think that God is involved in a battle, but He isn’t.  There’s no battle, that God Himself is involved in, nor has God ever been involved in a battle of any kind.  You believe that God is all-powerful, don’t you? Psalm 115:3 …

The Fear Of The Lord

November 17, 2018

The Vine And The Branches

October 21, 2018

    Scripture Reading;  John 15:1 thru 11   Our newspaper article this week is going to be about that parable of the vine and the branches.  And so I thought we all should review that lesson from Jesus.  Jesus began His lesson with these words;  “I am the Vine, the True..”  In other words, “I am the true vine..”  In this little analogy, it’s the vine, that gives life…
