    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 26, 2021

    #2 in my Romans 8 - What a Way to Live! series, this focuses on walking according to the flesh or the Spirit, essentially, selfishness or obedience.

    Romans 8:5-9 – Walking with God is No Leisurely Stroll I read a true story that happened some time ago at a hospital in Montreal.

    Edward Whymper, FRSE, the English mountaineer, explorer, illustrator, and author best known for the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865, once stated: “Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end.” Proverbs 21:5 supports this in that: “The plans more

  • The Rewards Of Work

    Contributed by Andy Payne on Apr 30, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    God did not intend work to be viewed as drudgery. Work is a necessity of life. Given the choice between leisure and work, most of us would choose leisure. So how does the bible view work?

    The Rewards of Work The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. (Proverbs 13:4) NIV Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. NLT INTRO: When I discovered that the theme for this week’s message was "The more

    Contributed by K. Edward Skidmore on Oct 24, 2005
    based on 14 ratings

    (Preached after a 2 month Sabbatical.) Leisure time is of value because it leaves us Loosened up, Wised up, and Prayed up.

  • A Good Word For The Diligent Series

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Feb 9, 2012
    based on 7 ratings

    The words diligence and industry do not carry as positive a connotation in our society as they once did. But the Bible exalts those that work over the "leisure-holics," and those who work with diligence over those who work with negligence.

    PROVERBS 10: 1-5 A GOOD WORD FOR THE DILIGENT [Proverbs 6:6-11] The subscription stated as "The Proverbs of Solomon" informs us that we have come to a new portion of the book. The first nine chapters have set forth beautifully in what has been mainly connected discourse concerning the more

    Negotiating with God The title for this mornings message is Negotiating with God. I must admit straight out that I am not a great negotiator. My wife would give me very strict instructions to keep my mouth shut when we went looking for a new car or any other major purchase. Having grown more

    based on 4 ratings
