  • "God Is Good”

    Contributed on Nov 12, 2018
     | 112 views

    We should thank God that He is genuinely and wisely good to us as His children.

    God is good, all the time! We readily affirm this to be true whenever good things happen to us, but what about when our circumstances aren’t so good? Is God still good? The answer is “yes.” The significance of God’s goodness is that He is always good, even when what’s happening to me or those I ...read more

    We should be thankful that God never changes.

    We’re beginning a new series on thanking God for who He is. Today we are going to consider the fact that we should be thankful for the fact that our God never changes; that He is always the same. “If we are inclined to grieve because everything around us changes, our consolation will be found in ...read more

     | 275 views

    A look at the early church in Acts two to discover characteristics that should be true of a church we should want to be part of, a church that's headed the right direction.

    We’re concluding our series on the kind of church I want to be part of. We’ve said while no church has achieved perfection, there is such a thing as a church heading the right direction; and the early church in Acts two was such a church. So we’ve looked to their example to learn what would be true ...read more

     | 354 views

    A look at the characteristics of the early church that need to be true of the church today.

    As we’ve said in this series already, there is no church on earth that has achieved perfection, but any church can head in the right direction. So we are looking at the characteristics of the early church in Acts chapter two, a church that was definitely headed in the right direction, to learn ...read more

    Contributed on Oct 8, 2018
     | 458 views

    Looking to Acts 2 to learn from the example of the early church what a church looks like that is headed in the right direction.

    As we started this series on the kind of church I want to be part of, we said that we aren’t talking about finding the right church as much as we’re talking about what needs to be true of us to see our church head the right direction. While it’s impossible to find a church of perfection, we can be ...read more

    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

     | 361 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
