The Day of Small Things This has been some week.  Virginia had an earthquake. Then Hurricane Irene hit the entire east coast.  Many who died this week were fine last week.  Sudden things can happen.  Things like this make us feel our smallness.  The largeness of sin, things seeming to be out of control and the destabilization...
Entering in by the Door Jesus made many statements defining him to us.  He said “I Am” the Bread of Life or the Good Shepherd.  He was not boasting but revealing who and what he is.  Think about the greatness of his deity.  It deserves a higher name than what he used here.  He used a commonplace object we hardly think...
The Place Named Gethsemane Part 2 Mark 14: 32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. 33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry...
God of Forbearance — Don’t Bite the Hand That Feeds You We have a God of mercy, holiness, and perfect righteousness, but he is also a God of forbearance.  It’s our best incentive not to sin and our best incentive to quickly repent when we do.  Chapter 1 of Romans deals with the sordid detail of the sinful conditions of the world system at that time. ...
What To Do With A Lame Sheep What do you do with a sick animal?  The exhortation is given here.  Sheep are not mentioned, but it is inferred.  The Bible says we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.  At our best we are sheep that need to be taken care of and led.  We all get down.  There has been only one perfect lamb—the...
The Place Named Gethsemane We learn a great deal from our Lord’s life especially the workings of salvation and the intensity of his love.  We see the picture of the struggle before him in Gethsemane.  Mark shows it in a practical perspective.  There is a parallel lesson we can identify with. Mark 14: 32And they came to a...
A Day When There Will Be No Mercy The message was brought by Bro Gary Roweltte. Revelation 15:5And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:  6And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded...

Thou Art Not Far From the Kingdom of God Here is a truth for unsaved, but it is also good instruction for the Christian.  A person is in a dangerous condition when he is close to being saved but still doesn’t make the move.  Being so close is good, but it’s not good enough.  We can’t be too close either. Jesus was bombarded with questions,...
Why It Doth Not Yet Appear The Bible educates and prepares us for living now and continues in preparation for eternity.  I’m thankful for the bottomless well of the Word of God. We would love a glimpse of heaven or would like to know what it feels like, but we have in our hands the Word. It’s the most talked about book and...
