  • Having, Losing, Choosing

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 31, 2009
     | 1,927 views

    Whatever we think we possess can be lost. God gives it to us for only so long as we need it, but after that it becomes an idol. We must choose to give away time, talent, treasure for things that do last, and for life itself.

    Almost nothing that you and I count on to be permanent really is permanent. Almost everything that we think will last forever, it turns out, can be destroyed. Anything we have we can also very easily lose. We live in a monumental city. Capitol Hill, the monuments, the Federal Triangle, the White ...read more

    Juy 31, 1988. When we don’t have enough, materially, it’s easy to be spiritual, and we respond with gratitude. When we have enough, materially, it’s still easy to be spiritual, and we respond with responsibility.

    You may not know it, but we may be in the vicinity of a piece of history. We may be in the neighborhood that gave rise to a revolution in the restaurant business. I cannot really document this, but at least in my limited observation, it was right here in this neighborhood that one enterprising ...read more

    The record proclaims that Caleb, because of his faith in God, took possession of his mountain, and he expelled some of the greatest of the giants. It is time we take back our mountains.

    Taking This Mountain Joshua 14:6-15 6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea. 7 Forty years old was I when Moses ...read more

     | 1,508 views

    The filling of the Spirit was evidenced in the early church in their unity and their attitude toward their possessions.

    A few weeks ago we began looking at the book of Acts, when the Christian church first began, and the power of God’s Spirit was with the people. I want to challenge all of you to read the book of Acts during the summer. It’s 28 chapters long, if you read one chapter a day, you could have it done ...read more

  • What Then Will We Have?

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Oct 24, 2008
     | 1,491 views

    Gaining authentic riches means embracing the way of life over the way of death. The way of life means constant companionship and reconciled relationships, all in the risen Christ.

    They promised me an income of up to ten thousand dollars a week. It would come in the easiest of ways; all I would have to do would be to sit at home and wait for it to pour in. They said the money would mount up effortlessly. Up to ten thousand dollars a week, made by promoting certain ...read more

    A warning against the dangers of riches; they are temporal and instead of hoarding them, we need to use them in furthering God’s kingdom.

    IF I WERE A RICH MAN James 5:1-6 This past week I was reminded of what I shared with you last week about making plans and not consulting God. It’s important to remember that if God wills our plans will come to pass. And we need to trust Him to bring them to pass and if our plans are not His ...read more

  • Control Belongs To God

    Contributed by Howard Strickland on Feb 22, 2009
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,298 views

    God’s choice is not unfair because He owes nothing to sinful man. (God still gives insight, concepts and ideas to mankind) God is free from obligation or constraint in bestowing mercy on people. God loves every person on the face of the earth, and He’s wa

    Control Belongs to God Text: Romans 9:14-33 14 Are we saying, then, that God was unfair? Of course not! 15 For God said to Moses, “I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”16 So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can neither choose ...read more

  • Buyer's Remorse

    Contributed by Todd Catteau on Feb 24, 2009
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,657 views

    I would bet that the disciples, when Jesus was off praying by himself, would discuss among themselves whether all this was worth it. Have we been scammed? I bet they had some buyer’s remorse. Some anxiety. Some uncertainty about their choice. I would!!

    If we are concerned only about earthly possessions, we will enter eternity empty-handed.

    Text: “…a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15).

The first ten years of my life was spent in the coal-mining hills of ...read more

    Dump all the stuff that gets in the way of your relationship with Jesus and His people.
