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

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

Christ, Our Life

I am deeply concerned that some do not understand the dedication that it takes to be a faithful servant of Christ.  It is the Lord, Who said, “…If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23).  Self-denial is an absolute necessity for

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

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

Seasoned With Salt

When studying the life of Jesus, it is beneficial to notice the different ways that He responded to various people and scenarios.  Each time, our Lord spoke and acted perfectly.  Take for instance, the discussion with the Samaritan woman at the well.  Jesus knew how to start a conversation by saying “Give me to drink”

When God Shuts The Door

At different times, I, and others, have prayed to the Father for “doors” to be opened so that good works can be done.  Through His providence, God has done just that over the years.  However, we need to realize that the same God Who opens those “doors” is the same God Who can shut “doors”

If

Words can be very powerful.  For instance, what enters your mind when someone says “love”?  Likewise, what enters your mind when someone says “hate”?  Each of these words can be used to convey different thoughts.  If not careful, one might misuse a word, and by so doing, cause many problems.  With that in mind, I

Read It To Me Again

When you were young, did you ever have a favorite “bedtime” story that you enjoyed.  Maybe it was about a knight and a princess, or perhaps it was about Jack and a beanstalk.  Whatever it might have been, did it seem like you ever tired of hearing it?  When your Mom and Dad read you
