Go and Make 

We have probably heard sermons or classes on Matthew 28:18-20 for years. In this verse, Jesus said the following: “… All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”…

A question of Why 

Throughout the Gospels, we see an overview of the life of Jesus as He lived here on this Earth. According to the inspiration of God in John 21:25, the world in which we live cannot hold all the books about Jesus that could be written. As you and I study the life of the Perfect One, we often ask ourselves: “Why did He do that or why did He do it that way?”. In my opinion, it is questions like…

A Difference in Evangelism 

We have been taught for years the lost are out there, somewhere and we need to be searching for those people. The other end of this spectrum is that we need to make sure we convert our young ones. Both of these statements are true but they are not the only times that evangelism is needed. I believe that evangelism is the most under-followed command of God for the individual Christian. God has not been specific on how we are…

A Difference in Organization

We are placed into a certain category by other people. The Lord’s church is often put into the category of “Christianity”. The religious world has only a few distinctions: Christianity, Jewish, Muslim and a few others. Do you realize that there are at least 4,000 different versions of “Christianity” as it is known by the world. However, God has only designated one church. A difference between the church for which Jesus died and the rest of the religious world is…

The Lord’s church is different…

We live in a world that hears the word “church” and the image that explodes into the mind of the world is a building with a steeple. The world sees the building as holy. It is almost impossible to change the mindset of 7 billion, however, it needs to be realized that the church is different. As we explore this idea, notice that the church is different due to her worship. The church is different when we see her worship…

Faithful for Life

The faith of the Bible is seen very clearly in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews. We have renamed this chapter Faith’s Hall of Fame. We read about men and women who lived lives that point out to us the need for us to be faithful unto our Holy and Righteous God. Let’s take a few moments to understand faith. Faith is defined in Hebrews 11:1 as “the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” The…
