  • Today, If You Hear His Voice . . . Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Feb 1, 2021
     | 1,542 views

    The possibility of falling away from Christ is greater than most of us think--no one is entirely immune from this awful outcome. It all begins with how we come to respond to God's voice, when we know He has spoken to us, and even in small things, choose to ignore Him.

    One of the great challenges of the pastoral profession is discerning who to help among those who are in evident financial need, and when to help them, and then how much to help them. Despite our best and most sincere efforts, pastors young and old, sometimes fail. I remember well the story of a ...read more

  • Forgivable & Unforgivable Sin? Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Aug 13, 2018
     | 4,589 views

    Jesus talked about a sin that was unforgivable, or unpardonable. What is the unpardonable sin? Is it possible that a believer can commit it? Let's do some hard thinking about what Jesus said in Matthew 12:30-32 and what the book of Hebrews says.

    The Paradoxical Sayings of Jesus: Forgivable & Unforgivable Sin? Matthew 12:30-32 This morning we consider another of Jesus' paradoxical statements: "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. 32 Whoever ...read more

  • The Peril Of Hardening Your Heart Series

     | 1,656 views

    Have you gotten used to saying "No" to God? It became a habit of the Children of Israel in the wilderness and ultimately resulted in an all-out rebellion against God that disqualified most of them from God's rest.

    Author, theologian and Professor Craig Keener tells how his mother asked him if he believed in an after-life at the age of nine, and he replied no. She agreed with him and told him how most intellectuals did as well. So he felt affirmed in his atheism. The problem was that such a worldview left ...read more

  • Reflection C.8 Does God Have A Purpose In Coronavirus? Summary Of New Testament So Far...

    Contributed by Simon Bartlett on Jun 3, 2020
     | 834 views

    In the previous seven 'Reflections' I've looked at what the New Testament, excluding Revelation, says about 'End Times'. In this Reflection I try to draw the threads together and show how they are relevant to our question.

    Today is a milestone – the end of the second stage of my study. At the end of March, I decided to try to answer the question, ‘Could God be behind coronavirus?’ I knew that people were asking the question and it seemed like a good question. I decided to split the task into three parts. I would ...read more

  • The Bottom Line: How To Be Faithful To Jesus Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Apr 28, 2021
     | 1,842 views

    The Heart of the Message to the Hebrews is how to be faithful to Jesus. How can we demonstrate in practical ways our faithfulness to Jesus in light of His faithfulness to us?

    I had an unexpected very emotional experience this past week. At a little after 6 on Tuesday morning I came to page 884, the last page of probably the longest book I have ever read apart from the Bible. As I’ve mentioned previously, I have been reading the massive scholarly work written by ...read more

  • The Very Real Danger Of Spiritual Neglect Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Jan 1, 2021
     | 2,176 views

    The issue of Christians who fall away from the faith was present in the New Testament, even as it is today. How can we prevent this from happening, and be vigilant against growing weary of following Christ ourselves?

    Today we begin a new message series from the Book of Hebrews which I’ve entitled “The Faith that Endures.” It’s a sobering book because it addresses a sobering topic—an issue that I know that I would prefer not to admit that it exists. It addresses the issue of Christians who are tempted to fall ...read more

    Their Rebellion, His Rest and Our Response

    On October 8, 1871, D.L. Moody was preaching to the largest crowd he had ever faced. He preached a sermon entitled, “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called the Christ?” From Matthew 27:22. He finished with these words: “I wish you would take this text home with you and turn it over in your ...read more

    How does God's grace help us when we turn away from Him?

    RESTORING GRACE Many of us can remember when we were in elementary school of what would happen as soon as the teacher left the room. She would have to go out for some reason and would always tell the class, “Be quiet while I am gone and study!” However, as soon as the cat was away the mice would ...read more

  • No Turning Back Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Feb 22, 2021
     | 2,851 views

    One of the most sobering warnings in all of Scripture is found in Hebrews 6. There is a great, even awful danger of making an irreversible and eternally destructive choice to abandon Christ. This passage stresses why you don't want to go there.

    This past year I faced a bit of a dilemma. My high school class, the class of 1970, was planning to celebrate its 50-year class reunion. I was invited. Would I go? That wasn’t the real dilemma. The real dilemma was that my spiritual father was on the organizing committee—yes, the fellow who ...read more

  • Waking Up Is Hard To Do Series

    Contributed by Mark Opperman on Jan 15, 2014
     | 6,210 views

    Life was pretty good in Sardis. The lack of opposition may have given them a sense of security and lulled them to sleep. Since the world was relatively nice to them, they may have grown comfortable in their relationship with the pagan world around them.

    Waking Up Is Hard to Do Revelation 3:1-6 "To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is ...read more
