Some misunderstand God's promise of eternal life. They know - and are right - that God cares for every soul. However, they lose sight of the fact that God's promise is conditional.
There are primarily three areas of missions: local, home and foreign. Local missions reach out to those within our geographic region. Home missions include other ministries to those out of our local geographic area, but still within the United States. Foreign missions are ministries to those outside of our own country.
"When you get to the fork in the road, take it." "Nobody ever goes there because it's always too crowded." "We made too many wrong mistakes." "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."
As a new year begins, some wonder about the future. They are concerned about jobs, investments, family and a host of other things. There is nothing wrong with thinking about such things, as long as they do not enslave us to them, to the point that they are all we think about. If we allow that to happen, we will not have a "happy new year." At the beginning of the year it is a ...
Just this week we've had to put away the old calendar for a new one; can you believe it's already 2013?
I had a wonderful conversation with an old friend this week. We had not spoken in 20 years. Gary is a very unique individual. The first time I met him was to interview him to become the music minister in the church I was serving as pastor. It was only a part-time position. His full-time job was as an attorney. Gary was great at both jobs, and we worked well together. But I have to ...
(This is part 2 of a two-part series looking at the example Christ provided for humans) Jesus is the example of how to love our fellow man. Prejudice did not have a place in the life of the Lord. This is clearly seen when he talked with a Samaritan woman (John 4:6ff). The Samaritans were thought of by most Jews as being lower than dogs; they were to be avoided. When Jesus spoke to ...
Whether we realize it or not, if we claim to follow Christ and claim to be living a changed life, then there are others watching us to see if we are genuine or just a fake.
In just a couple of days, we will turn our calendars over to a brand new year. I remember the first time my parents allowed me to stay up until midnight on Dec. 31. I was so looking forward to whatever it was that made that moment so magical.
You may remember the day when the teacher told you to get out that large round pencil and your tablet - it was time to learn to write the alphabet.
In the Christmas story, the shepherds were told by the angels that the birth of the Christ child meant that there would be peace on Earth.
Well, if you are reading this column, you can be certain that the prognostications were wrong.
Once again, we approach the holiday season, and almost everywhere the attitude of care for our fellow man is shown.
The angel said to the shepherds, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a savior, which is Christ the Lord." And with that announcement, the son of God came into our world.
While reading a book on business, I came across an interesting idea: A business owner should have a strategic view and not a tactical view of his or her business.
In the next few weeks, many area teens will receive their diplomas, which means that they officially will be graduated.
I believe that God is absolutely sovereign. That means that he is in control of all things, and that nothing is outside of his authority. He is the one and only God. He knows all things. He is all-powerful.
When man was created and placed in the Garden of Eden, God's plan of creation was completed. Man giving in to Satan turned this scene into a wicked and ugly one.
Members of Fellowship of Love in Allenhurst are pausing today to express their love and appreciation for their leaders - and celebrating in a big way.
Many look forward to Mother's Day, a time to honor, remember and celebrate motherhood.
Millions of people walk every day for various reasons, primarily to get some exercise. Others walk to support different causes.
Eight years ago this April, my mother passed away. It has been a while since that thought has caused me to burst out in tears, but it still fills me with deep sadness. I miss her terribly. I would give just about anything to be able to hear her deep Southern drawl on the telephone again.
Jesus said, "He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him; the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John 12:48). Knowing how much depends on obeying his word, a study of the Bible should be important to everyone.
First and foremost, I wish all mothers a wonderful and happy Mother's Day.
