  • "Let’s Be The Body”

    Contributed on Feb 12, 2018
     | 231 views

    We are to be Christ at work in the world today.

    In Acts 10:38, Peter described the life of Jesus by saying, “He went about doing good . . .” If one described the life of too many Christians today, however, he would have to say, “He simply went about!” This isn’t as it should be, for the Bible says we are sent into this world, even as Jesus ...read more

    In light of the cross of Christ, how should be as believer's live?

    We’ve been talking about sharing our faith. About taking the command of our King seriously: “go and make disciples of ALL nations,” (Matthew 28:19-20).

    Christians are sinners saved by grace.

    Many have a hard time imagining a God who wants to be close to us. They think that maybe God insists we clean ourselves up first. But God says don’t bother to get cleaned up. Just come as you are. Come with all your defects, faults and flaws. Come with your guilt and bad habits. Come as you are and ...read more

  • "Inviting People To The Party”

    Contributed on Jan 15, 2018
     | 752 views

    How should we go about inviting people to come to Christ?

    Jesus enjoyed parties. His very first miracle was at a wedding feast. When He called Matthew to follow Him, He went to Matthew’s house for a party. So it’s not surprising, when the religious leaders criticized Him, they said He went to too many parties, attended by wrong people. “The Son of Man ...read more

    What difference does the presence of the living Christ make?

    On a Sunday evening some 2,000 years ago, the disciples of Jesus were huddled together in fear, hiding from those they thought might call for their death, as they has called for the execution of their Master. They’d seen Him crucified and His body laid in a tomb. For them, suddenly life had become ...read more

     | 253 views

    A fellow once made the remark that if he were God, he could certainly do things much better than God seemed to. For example, he said, if I were God I would not have caused the fruit of such a tremendous tree as the oak to be an acorn. Such a mighty tree needs to bear a much larger fruit, like a ...read more

     | 159 views

    I took a piece of modeling clay; And idly molded it one day; And as my fingers pressed it still, It moved and yielded to my will. I came again when days were past; The piece of clay was hard at last. The shape I gave it still it bore; And I could change it nevermore. I took apiece of living ...read more

    We read in the papers, we hear on the air, Of killing and stealing, and crime everywhere. We sigh, and we say, as we notice the trend, "This young generation! Where will it all end?" But can we be sure that it’s their fault alone? That maybe most of it isn’t really our own ? Too much money to ...read more
