Truth In July 1998, I began as pastor of the church.  We’ve had many years together.  Several of us have graduated from middle age to senior citizens.  Our life in the Lord has been good. I John 5: 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son...
Dealing With Your Demons You are connected to this.  It involves all of us because we’re all challenged in the same way.  Pay heed if you’re not saved or are away from the Lord.  Before us is a scripture with a literal example of the forces that are now working—forces that have since Satan and a third part of the angels...
Searching the Scriptures Daily Part 2 Last week we talked about the Berean’s.  What stood out was that when the Word was preached, they searched the scriptures to see if what Paul and Silas said was true.  They are examples for us.  It lets us know that if they could learn, we can too. Acts 17: 10 And the brethren immediately sent away...

The Benefits of Believing-Part 2 Benefits of salvation are endless.  Paul listed them clearly.  In these verses he gives us the offensive benefits.  Many benefits are defensive to enable us and provide what we can’t do for ourselves.  A football team uses defensive tools to keep the opponent from scoring on their goal and offensive...
The Benefits of Believing-Part 1 What is a reason you took the job you have?  Nowadays, benefits are important.  There is a benefit to being saved and that’s an understatement by a longshot.  This world is not the kingdom of God.  Being a believer means an about face with a turn toward heaven.  You swim against the current. ...
Searching the Scriptures Daily Part 1 The writer is Luke, and he gives us the history of the early church.  He was in the company of Paul and Silas. In Berea the people were commented of very highly.  When they heard the preaching, they searched the scriptures to see if it was so.  This is a compliment we all could use.  It shows our...
Paul’s Prescription For Pain Relief See the shape Paul and Silas were in and what they did in response. Acts 16: 22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to...
Advice From a Troubled Wife On the fateful day of Jesus’ death, some advice was given from an unlikely source that still helps us today. Matthew 27: 15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. 16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. 17 Therefore when they...
Voicing Our Persuasion, Part 2 Peter was one to speak.  A chart of his life shows his ups and downs.  Even at the beginning, he made strong statements.  After having fished all night and caught nothing, Jesus told them to cast their nets out again into the deep.  Peter said Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken...
