“I Believe in God”

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

Through my life, I’ve heard people say to me many, many times, “I believe in God.” Usually, I’m supposed to be impressed. I’m not, because when someone says that, it shows that he really doesn’t believe in God. When I say he doesn’t believe in God, I mean that he doesn’t believe, and the God […]

Hospitality

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

3 John 1:5-8 say, “Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers; . . . . whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well: Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles. We therefore ought to […]

Subject Unto Christ

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Ephesians 5:24 reads, “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” Something occurred to me this last Wednesday night that struck me for the first time that I can remember. The imperative to wives isn’t understood without the comparison with the church. She […]

The Mission

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Sometimes when I hear “mission,” I think of NASA, the mission to the moon, or the Army and a military mission. A mission is a purpose to fulfill and Jesus told us what that purpose was while He was here and especially right before He left. His mission was accomplished, but the Lord Jesus Christ […]

Boredom

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

One word I hate to hear from anyone is “bored,” especially from young people. Very often, when someone says he is bored, it means he’s not being entertained. He doesn’t have enough productive to do in order to stay interested himself on his own. I also hear the word “distraction.” Men look for distraction. What […]

Perspective

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

When you look at the entire universe, the earth is very insignificant. A spacecraft photographed earth from Saturn’s rings and it is a speck of light with the moon as an even smaller speck. You would not judge this planet as being that important. It is most important in the vastness of space, because God […]

Live By Every Word

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Jesus said in Matthew 4:4 to Satan that we live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Every word. Scripture is sufficient and God expects us to live everything in it, even the parts where we must apply principles. We are required to apply the principles. We don’t just throw our […]

Indignation

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

John 2 records the first passover in Jerusalem of Jesus’ after He began His public ministry. Jesus cleanses the temple, His Father’s house, because the religious leaders had made it a house of merchandise, instead of one of prayer. Someone should understand a house of prayer as a place of fellowship with God. However, God’s […]

It Must Be Faith

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Ultimately everything that is important, what is eternal, the answer even for everything in this age, comes by faith. It must be faith. One, our abilities are flawed, our sight is muddled. We cannot count on us, are not going to see it right. Two, the forensics have been trampled. We do not enter a […]

Keeping God’s Words

Saturday, May 27th, 2017

Several times in the upper room discourse, you might notice that Jesus said something like the imperative in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” Same chapter, v. 21, then says, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me,” v. 23, “If a man love me, he […]
