    Solomon/s Search by Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com I ponder today, if I knew I only had one more sermon to preach, and then take my last breath, WHAT WOULD I SAY?

    Have you see the bumper sticker that says, “I took an IQ test and the results were negative”? Sometimes very intelligent people can get very negative results on their IQ tests. For instance, people are paid a lot of money to write the things that appear on the packages and products we buy. But a ...read more

    based on 38 ratings
     | 10,135 views

    It wasn’t enough that Saul had Go’s Spirit within him. He also needed to respond to the Spirit’s prompting with obedience. We need to listen to God’s voice and respond as he would have us respond. "Surely, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed tha

    When you think about it, being a Christian is a simple thing at one level, but it’s a multifaceted thing at another. And it’s so easy to get confused about what matters. At one level all you need is faith in Jesus Christ. At another level you need to be in a Church, you need to read your Bible. You ...read more

    Well, today we come to the end of the history of Saul, Israel’s first king. The question that faces us as we think about the life of Saul, is just how much of a failure was it?
