Searching In The Wrong Place Guarantees You Won't Find It

10/22/2019
More
Today it's easier than ever to find a place to worship that will say what we our ears want to hear. But if that message leads us away from God's Word it will ultimately lead us away from God. Paul's caution to Timothy resonates today just as it did then.

If We Are Faithless, He Will Remain Faithful

10/18/2019
More
Being a Christian isn't frightening. However, being persecuted for being a Christian is frightening. As a result, there may have been times when, like Peter, we have been tempted to shrink back, or even deny our Savior. In light of this, Paul has a wonderful axiom that is worth hearing.

Theme Thursday: "I Believe ... In The Holy Christian Church"

10/17/2019
More
In the Apostles' Creed we confess, "I believe ... in the holy Christian Church." It's become fashionable these days to say, "I love Jesus, but I hate the church." However, in Ephesians, Paul says Christ loves it. So what does this term mean?

You Are Not Insignificant In God's Sight

10/16/2019

Be Strong ...

10/15/2019
More
"Be strong." Here's a phrase that's popular on coffee mugs and on motivational plaques and posters. But sometimes it's easy to mistake a motivational message with a shortened version of God's Word.

I'll Take Your Word For It

10/14/2019
More
"I'll take your word for it." Have you ever used that expression? Ten lepers who met Jesus certainly reacted that way when He heard their plea.

10/12/2019
More
In the current climate of barbed and unbridled talk it's tempting to shrink back in timidity from sharing the Gospel. But here's why the wonderful news of the Gospel so needed. And the apostle tells us how, and why, we can move from apprehensive to assured.

Theme Thursday: "I believe in the Holy Spirit"

10/10/2019
More
The work of the Holy Spirit is often confused with feelings. But, in reality, they're not similar at all. A faith based on our feelings would be like riding a roller coaster. The Holy Spirit directs us away from the uncertainty of our feelings and points us to Jesus – and the certainty of the salvation He has accomplished for us on the cross.

God, Why Do You Tolerate Wrong?

10/9/2019
More
"Why do You tolerate wrong?" The prophet Habakkuk asked God that important question. You and I may find ourselves asking the same question today. But Habakkuk didn't throw up his hands in despair. He did two things that are very useful for us as well.

10/7/2019
More

Theme Thursday: "He Will Come To Judge"

10/3/2019
More
