    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Sep 12, 2022

    Of the ten healed, only one came back and gave thanks to Jesus. A Samaritan, who had imperfect faith and belief.

    “Where are the other nine?” Jesus asks. I read that nine out of ten husbands agreed that their wives are always right. The tenth one hasn’t been seen since the study was conducted. Luke 17:11 says that Jesus “traveled through Samaria and Galilee.” Jesus grew up in Nazareth, which was around more

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Dec 13, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    When we experience new life in Jesus Christ we might think a change in our external appearance, position, or circumstances will make us more useful to the Master. But you might just miss out on one of the greatest opportunities available to you.

    Last time we talked about how some in Corinth, especially women who were just experiencing new freedoms in the body of Christ, thought it best to divorce their pagan husbands, or remain celibate in marriage in order to be better Christians. In the context of an overly-sexualized society, and of a more

    In every relationship, particularly marriage, there are times when the believer must be faithful, regardless of the challenge.

    Allan Petersen, in The Myth of the Greener Grass, tells the story of a group of a dozen married women having lunch together. One woman asked, "How many of you have been faithful to your husbands throughout your marriage?" Only one woman out of the twelve raised her hand. At home that evening, more

  • Praying In The Face Of Opposition

    Contributed by David Wilson on Oct 3, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    When threatened, the church responded with a prayer of personal commitment rather than praying against those who were persecuting them.

    Praying in the Face of Opposition TEXT: Acts 4:23-31 BACKGROUND: After the glorious healing of the crippled man at the gate of the temple, Peter (with John alongside him) preaches a powerful message to those who are amazed. This upsets the elders and the teachers of the law who seize more

  • Thanksgiving Day

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Nov 16, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    The Apostle Paul did not write 365 thank-you notes. But he did write about one-half of the letters that make-up the New Testament. And Paul’s letters overflow with thanksgiving.

    Gratitude is an intentional way of thinking about receiving a benefit and giving credit to others beside oneself for that benefit. Practicing gratitude magnifies positive feelings more than it reduces negative feelings. To illustrate: John Kralik found his life at a terrible, frightening low more

  • Silver And Gold Have I Much- But What Good Does It Do Me? Series

    Contributed by David Wilson on Mar 23, 2011
    based on 6 ratings

    God's bleak message of certain judgment continues as Ezekiel describes the basis for judgement, the certainty of judgment, and the completeness of this judgment. A bleak, doom and gloom text reminds us of the holiness of God.

    Ezekiel’s proclamation from the Lord in chapter 7 is one of the strongest prophetic messages ever offered. It is a message of sure and certain judgment that is no longer something that is coming—but something that has arrived. This message is something of a summary of the message of more
