Today we focused on the role of God in the Church. There are many religions and churches out there, some are truthful to the Gospel and others offer salvation at a price. What would Jesus think of those churches that offer salvation in exchange for your money, your possessions, but never preach the Gospel of Salvation through faith in Christ alone! In John 2 Jesus goes ...

THE RIGHT FIT

Crescens for Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia, Luke in Rome, Tychicus to Ephesus (2 Timothy 4:10-11, NKJV) What is the first thing we do when we buy new shoes? We make sure they fit, that they are not big or tight on our feet. We don't want to be walking around in shoes that either too small or too big, we want to make sure they are the right fit. This reminded of a time duri...

Today is Father's Day and as with this past Mother's Day, I'm going to give a message not just intended for the fathers in our church, but everyone present. At the beginning of the book of 1 Kings, the story opens with King David on his deathbed. Although he had managed to rouse himself long enough to appoint Solomon as his successor, David was still dying. Knowing tha...

CHEAP SKATE

There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword (Proverbs 12:18a, NKJV) All of us at one point in our lives will be faced with a tough decision, do we do the right thing, do we obey our parents, or do we do the wrong thing. I still recall one summer day when three of us were playing catch with a softball near a wooded area of a Boy Scout Summer Camp. We were enjoyin...

LIVING IN TENTS

These all died in faith and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth (Hebrews 11:13, NKJV). I remember living in tents and each time it was a temporary abode. I also remember the work required to setup a tent and then camp. It was hard work, but when you're young some of these things can actually be fun. The first time was in Boy Scout Camp where I le...

PROOF READING

Whatsoever things are pure... think on these things (Philippians 4:8, NKJV) I developed a love for reading at a very young age, and I still love to read. There are times when small errors make it pass the editing process. When I find one of these small errors I realize we are not perfect and no matter what, we will always make mistakes. When I was in 6th grade, the local...
