His Word

Taking the time to study the lessons that Jesus taught is a worthwhile endeavor. The student will truly be learning from the Master. With that being the case, it may seem hard to imagine that individuals could have heard Jesus teach and still rejected Him and His Word. On one occasion Jesus taught, “I know

A Look At Love

It is a fact that one of the most important things that should exist in a Christian’s life is love. Over and over this precept is taught throughout God’s Word. It has even been noted that the Bible is a book about God’s love for us. Some of the most well known verses of Scripture

And Such Were Some Of You

The first century congregation in Corinth was inundated with various problems.  Division, fornication, and scruples were just some of the issues that Paul addressed in his writings.  Yet, even though there was room for much needed growth, Paul did mention some things that the congregation had in its favor.  The apostle wrote, “Know ye not

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

Do We Really Understand Sacrifice?

It is not far-fetched to think that one who is searching for the truth could visit with two different groups, on two consecutive Sundays, and be taught conflicting and contradictory things. What a tragedy! In very simple terms, it should have never

Our Influence

I have no idea who was the first to say it, but I am sure that many of us have heard it said, “You may be the only Bible that some people will ever read.”  The idea behind that saying is that most folks will not read their actual Bibles, but they will notice how

Are You Sure That You Are Saved?

Many sermons and articles have been preached and written to instruct a sinner on how he can be saved.  God’s plan of salvation is clearly revealed in the New Testament.  If an accountable person hears the Word of God, believes Jesus is the Son of God, repents of past sins, confesses that Jesus is the

Fully Persuaded

Are you confident that God will bring to pass what He has said?  Is there any doubt in your mind?  What about your sins being forgiven?  What about Jesus returning?  Will we really be judged?  Just how sure are you?  I want to encourage you to have no doubt whatsoever!            God is trustworthy, regardless

My Thoughts Are Not Your Thoughts

Man should be careful not to believe that he is on the same intellectual level as God.  While there have been some great minds throughout history, none can begin to equal the infinite knowledge that God possesses.  It is correct to say that God is omniscient.  That simply means that God is all-knowing, and that
