    Contributed by Mark A. Barber on Jun 30, 2022

    The Christian has to face rejection if he is serious about following Jesus. Oftentime, this rejection comes from family and friends.

    The Rejection Tour Luke 9:51-62 No one likes rejection. This is especially true when your purpose is to be helpful. Rejection from your enemies is bad enough. at least you can rationalize that this is your enemy; therefore, it is a badge of honor rather than shame. Rejection can come in many more

    Where does obedience to the command of men stop and obedience to God begin?

    We must obey God rather than Men Acts 5:26-33 Sometimes, the Scripture seems to put us in quite a dilemma.

  • Worthy Is The Lamb That Was Slain

    Contributed by Mark A. Barber on Apr 30, 2022

    The spectacular worship of Jesus our Lord which will happen in heaven is not to be missed.

    Worthy is the Lamb that was Slain Revelation 5:11-14 Who is this Jesus who rose from the dead on Easter Sunday morning? The answer to this question means everything. Some see the resurrection as being a spiritual event. For some, this is something short of a literal resurrection. These might say more

    Contributed by Mark A. Barber on Mar 13, 2022

    God does not play favorites, not does He consider what societal norms are when He chooses His ministers.

    The Women who Supported Jesus' Ministry Luke 8:1-3 Sometimes, a passage of Scripture gets overlooked because it is seen as simple background information to the narrative. This is true of the passage we read this morning. At first it seems to act as a transition from the story of Simon the more
