  • God Demands Complete Obedience

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Dec 20, 2021

    God has given us different talents because God has different jobs for each of us to do.

    Most of us understand that, but what many do not seem to understand is what God has called them to do and equipped them to do, HE EXPECTS THEM TO DO! Our desire should be as Christ's. He said in John 4:34, "...My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work." more

    based on 39 ratings

    Sin has consequences in our lives. The text is the story of two men, Saul and David and how they handled their sin.

    “Two Responses to Sin” October 9, 2005 Today is a message dealing with a very uncomfortable topic. Sin has become an issue that all too often churches don’t want to address and don’t want to deal with. We like to focus on grace and mercy and forgiveness, but we fail sometimes to really look at more

  • Doing What God Asks Us To Do!

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Jul 8, 2006
    based on 7 ratings

    God gave Saul an instruction but Saul only half-carried it out. This short homily is a challenge to us: Let’s do all that God asks us to do; nothing more AND nothing less!

    In these days of terrorism this Bible event is hard for us to understand; and I know of one or two people who have rejected God because of it. The irony is of course that the story is primarily kept for us as a warning not to reject God’s instructions! Hundreds of years ago, stories such as this more
