    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 ...

    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. ...
