    Why Are There Four Gospels? Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (the “Gospels”) all tell the story of Jesus. Why does the Bible include all four of them? We need to remember that each of the writers was selective in what he wrote down. The pieces of information contained in one gospel was for a specific purpose to make a point (John 20: 30, 31)...

    Remember the Lord In Luke 22:14-20, Jesus gave His disciples an imperative to remember Him. One of the main aspects of Christian worship service comes when we partake of the bread and fruit of the vine. During those moments we are very conscious of what Jesus has done for us through His sacrifice. We do our best to remember Him as we par...

    Seeking Jesus A young girl, was looking through one of her books when she was asked, “What are you doing?” Her reply was simply; “I’m looking for Jesus, daddy.” Throughout the New Testament we find occasions where people were looking for Jesus, but for totally different reasons. Herod was looking for Jesus as an infant to put Him to deat...

    Do You Value Your Soul? In Matthew 16, we read, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world ...

    The Cross and Jesus The New Testament writers used fulfilled prophecy to confirm the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here are eleven prophecies regarding Jesus and his crucifixion that were fulfilled and have helped many come to accept the truth of the gospel. The Victim Would Not Resist (Isaiah 53:7; John 18:8; 1 Peter 2:23, 24) The Manner of D...

    Jesus Gives Us Hope We are living in a tired and sinful world. We can’t turn on the tv or radio without hearing and seeing the sinful state the world is in. We receive updates and news reports directly to our phones informing us of someone’s latest sin. It was just as sinful in Jesus’ day, however, maybe not publicized to the world the s...

    New Year’s Resolutions “I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your laws” (Psalm 119:30). The term “resolution” (as we often think of it) basically means “firm determination to take a course of action.” With each new year, people all around the nation make their New Year’s resolutions. With some it is to quit smoking;...

    Remember Me As I write this article, the memorial service for President George H.W. Bush is on my television screen. Many individuals close to the Bush family have shared their memories and offered insight into his life. It is no surprise that all these individuals have shared their most positive moments with the former President. It has...

    A Merry Heart "Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad." (Proverbs 12:25); "A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast." (Proverbs 15:13,15); "The heart knows ...

    Three Prayers of Thankfulness The Past Giving thanks unto the Father, who made us adequate to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins (Colossians 1:12-14). T...

    Who Did You Vote For? I know it doesn’t do much good looking back on who we voted for just a week ago. However, I want you to examine who you voted for, so you can think about what kind of person you will vote for next time. Have we been voting for men and women of principle, not just those that have personal standards but ones that are ...

    Pure and Undefiled Religion In James 1:27, we are challenged to have a pure and undefiled religion. The word picture James paints is of a religion without any stain. One that hasn’t been contaminated by anything filthy or dirty. James also tells us that this religion is laid before God. We may have a pure and undefiled religion before me...

    Think Souls What do you think of when you hear, “Think souls?” I remember hearing this phrase for the first time 7 years ago when the Bear Valley church of Christ began a campaign called, Think Souls. That little phrase brought several images to my mind of people that I meet or even ignore every day and I didn’t even consider their soul....

    Living as Exiles I don’t think we believe we are living in exile in America. We look at ourselves as extremely blessed to live in such a rich country. We have all kinds of freedoms and rights because we are citizens of the United States of America. While there are many blessings to be had living in this country, have we missed the fact t...

    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 ...
