The Wheat And The Tares

Lord, Are There Few That Be Saved?

    While working during His earthly ministry, Jesus was asked a question that might have crossed your mind at some time.  “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved…” (Luke 13:23)?  It has been the concern of many whether or not they will get to Heaven.  The answer that Jesus

The Change That Really Matters

Spiritual Worship-Part Two

          The first act of worship that we will examine is prayer to the Father.  In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus declared to whom prayer should be addressed.  He said, “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;

Spiritual Worship-Part One
