    Judging a Church By Its Size When you visit a small congregation what do you think? On the other hand, when you visit a large congregation what do you think? We tend to see small congregations as inactive, not evangelistic, or not doing the will of God and that is why they are small. We look at large congregations and think the opposite,...

    Be Reconciled In the sermon last week, we talked about when God rejects his chosen people and tells them to stop praying. I want you to consider another instance in the New Testament where God tells us to stop praying and fix our relationships. Notice, in Matthew 5:21-24, “You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall not commit...

    The Gloomy View Self-pity is not an uncommon experience. Even little things can cause us to feed on our own misery. Perhaps a rainy day, or a repair job on the car will trigger it, and then our spirits sag to the depths of Carlsbad Caverns. And when world affairs seem out of joint, “the spirit of heaviness” has a field day. After all, wh...

    True Freedom Some people believe freedom comes through force. We see violence in other nations around the world and at home in our own country. The message of “true freedom only coming through might” is sinking into our society in ways that will have lasting consequences. Many animals puff themselves up to look bigger and more dangerous ...

    Don’t Quit, We Need You! At halftime of the second game for the Buffalo Bills, the season was looking bleak. A 0-2 start is not out of the ordinary for the Bills, but still not what the players, coaches, and fans wanted. After losing 47-3 to the Ravens in Week 1, Buffalo trailed 28-6 at halftime. Adding insult to injury, corner Vontae Da...

    A Plea to Those Who Lead Worship From the man who gives the announcements before worship to the man who closes the worship in prayer or song, each has a serious responsibility and a stewardship entrusted to him. The worshippers each have a personal accountability for worshipping in spirit and truth, but by the very nature and definition ...

    The Mustard Seed Matthew 13:31,32 The kingdom of heaven predominated the teachings of Jesus. Why did he spend so much time talking about the kingdom? The Jews had great misconceptions concerning what the kingdom was going to be like, and who would be a part of it. The Jews had failed to properly prepare themselves for the true kingdom of...

    Don’t Ever Give Up We all face various struggles, illnesses, stumbling blocks, failures, and trials throughout our lives. The temptation to throw up our hands and say, “I quit!” is easy. Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President, had plenty of reasons to quit and not succeed. Look at a summary of his life: Difficult Childhood Less than one yea...

    How Can We Live Faithful Christian Lives? The road to heaven is not an easy one (Matthew 7:13, 14). Christians face many obstacles in trying to travel the “strait and narrow” path that leads to everlasting life. The devil opposes us, trying to get us to sin, and demons assist him in his work. The world itself and the people in it are con...

    The Wings of God I haven’t spent a lot of time in nature, but I have seen birds cover their young with their wings protecting them from danger. This is a natural and instinctual reaction. Jesus, speaking in Matthew 23:37, used this imagery to describe His desire to protect and save Jerusalem. It reminds me of the desire I have to protect...

    Be an Encourager We like to think that we have it all figured out. We have set up plans to get everything accomplished like we believe it should happen. However, what happens when someone throws a wrench in our plans? Or what we could never plan for happens? Too many times we crumble under the stress of the burden that has fallen onto ou...

    Is Prosperity Better? When we hear about someone who won the lottery, do we think, “Wow, if only I had hundreds of millions of dollars life would be so much better”? Sure, we can see how having a lot more amenities and not needing to think about how we will pay the mortgage or rent next month would be nice, but does the money make our li...

    Can Good Deeds Save Us? N. B. Hardeman had a sermon entitled, “Cornelius Shames Us”. Within it, he pointed out that even before Cornelius became a Christian, he was better than many of us. The account of Cornelius’ conversion can be found in Acts, chapters 10 and 11. In these chapters, we find several of Cornelius’ good characteristics. ...

    When we look at ourselves, we normally focus on the negative. We see all the imperfections that bother us as we gaze at our reflection in the mirror. Much of our time is spent upset about who we think we are and what we think others will see. In Judges chapter 6, we are introduced to a man who will be the new judge in Israel. His name is...

    Baptism Most of the people I have met who read the Bible agree that we are told to believe and have faith in Jesus. They will say that we need to repent, or turn away from our sinful past, and follow Jesus. They recognize that we should be living holy lives dedicated to God. But when it comes to baptism the room is filled with confusion,...

    Why did Jesus have to take on flesh and humanity? Why did Jesus have to take on flesh and humanity? This question was always on my mind growing up in the church. Why did Jesus have to come in the flesh? Since He is God, why couldn’t He just say this is the way we are going to do things now for you to be saved from your sins. I found it h...

    Fathers “Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father, And give attention that you may gain understanding, For I give you sound teaching; Do not abandon my instruction. When I was a son to my father, Tender and the only son in the sight of my mother, Then he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; Keep my commandments ...

    Redeemed How I Love to Proclaim It! A story is told of a gentleman visiting a slave market, who was deeply touched by the mental agony of a slave-girl. He feared that she would fall into the hands of a rough master. The gentleman inquired her price, paid it to the slave-trader, then placed the bill of sale in her own hands, telling her t...

    The Righteousness of God “The righteousness of God is God’s alone; man is taken up into it and set in it. God’s righteousness is a conjunction of judgment and grace which He enjoys and demonstrates by showing righteousness, by imparting it as His pardoning sentence, but which draws into His kingdom as new life and thereby pledges service...

    God’s Loving Kindness Kindness is listed as part of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians chapter 5. It is a characteristic that all Christians should express toward one another and their fellow man. There are plenty of definitions of kindness that can be given, but I like what William Barclay had to say, “Kindness is the virtue of a man ...
