A battle is raging

John reveals to all that there is a battle being fought every day. It is a battle that involves everyone on the face of the earth. The world is full of temptations for young and old alike. Today there seems to be less time for the home, family, and God. A struggle goes on to provide and maintain a standard of living, and the proper spiritual nurturing. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the ...

Promise Keepers

A few years ago Promise Keepers was a very active, very popular movement. It is not as strong as it was then, but that's okay. In many ways God used it to make an impact upon the lives of many men. If there are newer and better ways to do that in the future, then He will raise them up, too.

Being saved is about true repentance

Repentance is a word we don't hear very much about in today's Christian environment but it is a word heavily used in scripture. To repent means that we feel sorry for our sins; sorry enough to decide to change our way of living and thinking and sorry enough to turn from following self to following Christ. In other words, it is all about change.

Remembering the sacrifice

It is Memorial Day weekend. What does that mean to you? The unfortunate thing is that for many it simply means a long weekend where they can slip off to the beach, the lake, the mountains, or somewhere else for a bit of rest and relaxation. And there is nothing inherently wrong with that.

The causes of salvation, part 5

Over the past few weeks we have been looking at the "Causes of Salvation." We have noticed that God the Father, Christ the Son, the Holy Spirit, the word of God and faith all are causes of our salvation. Today we will notice another "cause of salvation."

God provides fellowship, bringing people together

Psalms 133 says, "How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" He's talking about a fellowship that happens between individuals with the absence of strife.

What is Mother's Day?

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I hope that doesn't set off panic and a rush to the mall. But if so, you can thank me later. I learned earlier this week that this is the 100th anniversary of the first Mother's Day Service. The day did not become a legal, national holiday until 1914, but the first official service was held on May 10, 1908.

Your sins will find you out

The other day I was driving through the intersection of Abercorn and Derenne on the way to the hospital. I don't know if the cameras are still there that catch those who run the red light but I know of several who have received a fine in the mail for doing so.

Life of consistency

In the last few months we have seen the weather go from one extreme to another. For instance, last week we saw temperatures in the 80's then at the beginning of this week we saw temperatures in the 30 at night and only in the low 60's in the day and here it is at the end of the week with temperatures in the mid 80's again. We do expect this kind of inconsistency with the weather in the springtime and we know that as summer approaches it will just be consistently hot.

The Bible tells me so

I heard the story of a man who had taught the Bible to college and seminary students for many years. He had a string of PhD's to his credit, having studied the New Testament all of his life. At a banquet where he was being honored, one person asked him, "What is the greatest theological truth that you have learned from the Bible?" Pausing only briefly, the gentleman replied, "Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so."

Sin can be overcome by following God's word

The Bible plainly states that all men have sinned (Romans 3:23). Sin, though not inherited, has been a plague of each generation of mankind. Each individual sins and is responsible for their sins.

Use His way to avoid devil's tricks

This week has been beautiful, and I think spring is finally here to stay. We have been fooled before with a cold front sneaking its way back in. Well, speaking of being fooled, Tuesday was April Fool's Day where many a folk were hoaxed or tricked. Most of this was all done in fun and brought much-needed laughter.

Stone movers wanted by God

"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.' Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, 'Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.' And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth.' And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus ...

Come now, let us reason together: Part 2

Last week, we looked at Isaiah 1:18 and saw that God was willing to give his people an opportunity to come to their senses and turn back to him. Those people failed to heed God's warnings. Surely, man can learn from their mistakes (Romans 15:4).
