What Saves?

What Saves?

There is a grave misconception among a lot of people that one solitary act saves us from our sins. Most of the time, the act put forth is faith. We dare not isolate or tell God the means by which we will be saved! If and when we do, we are not properly dividing the...

Hurricane Gustav Preparations

“Do You Think I Am Going to Hell?”

“Do You Think I Am Going to Hell?”

Evangelism Motivators

Evangelism Motivators

Shakin’ in Yer Boots

Shakin’ in Yer Boots

In the first century, a Roman philosopher named Rodan of Alexandria said, “Only a brave person is willing to honestly admit, and fearlessly to face, what a sincere and logical mind discovers.” With that in mind, what does the mind discover? First and foremost, when we...

How Can a Man Understand?

How Can a Man Understand?

Proverbs 20:24 says, “Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?” God’s control of our lives is beyond human comprehension. This proverb asks a rhetorical question regarding this topic: since the steps of a mighty person are from the Lord...

The Image of Jesus?

The Image of Jesus?

A few years ago, an Ohio woman saw what she thought looked like Christ on the cross when she went for her ultrasound for her baby due in August. She was shocked to see the image and said, “People say maybe my baby is gonna be blessed and maybe it is a good sign.” She...

“Whosoever Will …”

Attendance is Vital

Attendance is Vital

The Babylonian Exile #6

The Babylonian Exile #6

Daniel was among the first exiles taken by Nebuchadnezzar’s army to Babylon. He was perhaps a youth of 18 or so years and he lived through the complete 70 years of exile prophesied by Jeremiah. His prophecies ranged from warnings against Nebuchadnezzar personally...

Three Swimmers

Three Swimmers

Let's suppose that a plane crashes into the water with three men aboard, and there is no boat, ship, or land within hundreds of miles. One of the men is able to swim only a few hundred feet. The second can manage to stay afloat an hour or two. The third is a world...

What Does It Mean to Believe in Jesus?

What Does It Mean to Believe in Jesus?

“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name” (John...

Can You Understand the Bible?

Can You Understand the Bible?

It is sad to see people who believe that the Bible cannot be understood. God certainly wants everyone to understand His word (Ephesians 5:17; 1 Timothy 2:3-4). Why would God desire that all men come to a knowledge of the truth, but reveal that truth in a way that is...

“Many Are Called, Few Are Chosen”

“Many Are Called, Few Are Chosen”

In Matthew 22:1-14, spoke the parable of the wedding feast. When people rejected the invitation because of worthless excuses, the people in the highways were invited. When one came without preparation, he was cast into “outer darkness.” Jesus summed up the parable by...

How Do You Get Close to God?

How Do You Get Close to God?

Hardening the Heart

Hardening the Heart

Proverbs 28:14 says, “Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.” A hardened heart is one that has turned away from God. It is a willful decision and the only way it can be corrected is with a willful decision to...

A Look at Calvary

A Look at Calvary

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The love of God is proven more than anyplace else at Calvary. Luke 23:33 tells us that our Lord was brought...

Realization

Realization

Some of us are “late to the party” where good sense is involved, while others figure things out pretty quickly in life. This should not surprise us because many times Bible characters were slow to “get the point” of things that the Lord was teaching. David, for...
