Risen With Christ

Once an individual obeys the Gospel, he is added by the Lord to His church (Acts 2:47).  It is at that point that the man’s life is forever changed.  Yes, he enjoys all of the spiritual blessings that are in Christ, but there is more to the life of a child of God (Eph. 1:3). 

Beware Of False Teachers And False Doctrine

The Bible is the most amazing book that has ever been written.  Time after time, situations of life arise, and the Bible always has the answers that we need.  With that being stated, I wonder just how often some people even read the Bible.  I know that the masses of humanity are largely ignorant of

Spiritual Worship-Part Five

The final act of worship that we will notice is the action of giving/contribution.  Christians should know that all of the blessings that we have are from God.  James wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow

Scriptural Worship-Part Four

In no way should The Lord’s Supper become a common meal.  Apparently, that is what happened amongst the congregation in Corinth.  Some members of the congregation were not observing the memorial appropriately.  The brethren there were told, “When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord’s supper.  For in

The Church Of Christ

In a world where there is a “church” to suit every fancy and whim, I wholeheartedly affirm that I am not ashamed to be a part of the church of Christ.  Sadly, there are some in this world who think that I have the wrong point of view.  Let me take the time to supply

The Good Shepherd

While on this Earth, Jesus was referred to in different ways.  Many know Jesus is the Son of God.  Others realize that Jesus is also the Son of man.  These two designations indicate the Deity of Christ, as well as His manhood.  Another of the more well-known references is when Jesus said, “I am the

Justice And Vengeance

No matter how many times I read it, the Sermon on the Mount is still so powerful and useful.  Whether it is the beatitudes at the beginning, or “the wise man building his house on the rock” at the end, the Sermon on the Mount still stands as a masterpiece.  Let us take the opportunity

More Preaching

          We live in a time when “old fashioned” preaching is ridiculed and disliked by so many.  Some, so called preachers, have traded the Scriptures for fables, “feel good stories”, jokes and the like.  There is a trend among some preachers to speak only “positively”.  The idea of repentance and change

The Fear Of The Lord

          I will just come right out and say it!  Many do not fear the LORD.  I do not say that with any joy.  It is a terrible thing that exists in a large part of the world.  However, we should not begin to believe that this is the first time that such a lack

Exceeding Great and Precious Promises

Some of you have lived in a time where a man’s word was his bond.  An affirmation and a handshake were suitable to seal a deal.  In today’s society, with lying being so rampant and commonplace, we sometimes do not know who, or what, to believe.  With that being said, I am absolutely certain that
