God: the Father

Our God is a complex study. We long to know everything we can about Him. As we gain a knowledge about God, we thirst to know more. During this series of articles, we will explore the Father, the Son and the Spirit. We will notice how these three are different and how they are the same. Today we will notice the Father. 1. God is: a. Great- Deuteronomy 5:24 b. Loving- John 3:16 c. Holy- 1 Peter 1:15-16 d. Perfect-…

God’s Word: AUTHORITY

God has given unto us a law that will be used to save our souls as we are obedient unto Him. That is the key to our salvation. We cannot know what to do unless we find the source of God’s law- HIS AUTHORITY. His Word proves His authority. Let’s look at God’s authority today. 1. God’s Word is infallible a. Send from God- Acts 10:36 b. Inspired- 2 Timothy 3:16-17 c. Verbally inspired (every word)- 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 d.…

God’s Word: OBEDIENCE

God has an interesting outlook on us. He provides our needs. He provides for what we do not yet understand that we need. All good things come from God (James 1:17). He does, however, require something from us- obedience. He expects us to see the good and follow those things. Notice what He says: 1. Necessity a. If I love God- John 14:15 b. If I am Hid friend- John 15:14 c. To inherit- Matthew 7:21-23 d. Fear God- Ecclesiastes…

God’s Word: FAITH

God has offered unto mankind the ability to be saved by God form his lost condition. The lynchpin to acquiring this Salvation from God is FAITH. Without the belief that God can do anything and that He will do what He has promised to do, we have nothing to base our Salvation. That makes FAITH so vitally important. 1. What is FAITH?- a. Defined by God- Hebrews 11:1 b. Origin- Romans 10:9-10 c. Yielding- Romans 10:16 d. Not-James 2:17-26 2.…

God’s Word: LOST

God has never been concerned with skin color or gender. He has been, and continues to be, concerned with lost people. When you and I move past those physical barriers, we then are confronted with the eternality of humanity. Notice this great problem plaguing mankind. 1. Scriptural definitions a.No hope- Revelation 21:8 b.Having no hope- Ephesians 2:12 c.Without Christ- Ephesians 2:12 2. If I am lost… a. I will not be alone- Revelation 21:8, Ro mans 14:7, Luke 16:27-31 b.…

God’s Word: EVANGELISM

God has not specified how we are to go, but He has said go to the lost. God has specified what we are to teach those who are lost- the gospel of Jesus Christ! God has also specified to whom we are to preach- all the world. He also specifies when you and I are to go. The answer is now due to the urgency and frailty of human life. 1. The Mission of the church a. The charge from…

What is Zeal?

We are commanded to be zealous, but what is zeal? We’d love to follow this directive of God, but we may not know exactly what it is. The Greek word used here is zelos. Its meaning is to boil over; to be hot; fervor; passion. Notice a few of these verses: 1. Commanded to be Zealous a. Colossians 4:13, Titus 2:14, Revelation 3:19, Galatians 4:18, Ecclesiastes 9:10   2. Biblical Examples of Zeal a. Numbers 25:11-13, 27-29, Exodus 2:12, 11:8,…

A Song on my Lips

We often sing this lyric: “I will cling to my Savior and never depart -I will joyfully journey each day. With a song on my lips and a song in my heart, That my sins have been taken away.” Many times we get caught up in the idea that I want the musical side of the song to sound great. In doing this we sometimes overlook the wording. As faithful children of God we ought to live with a song…

Gazing Up

Acts 1:9-11: “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen…

What will I do in 2024?

As 2023 passes away and 2024 moves into position, we often take an account of how well or poorly we preformed in the last year. We look at health, our diets, our family and our jobs. We take stock of how the year went and our expectations of that year. We vow to have the incoming year to be closer to our expectation. We have named this process our New Year’s Resolution. While the taking of stock of our expectations…

Short-Changing

Hebrews 10:26- “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” (emph. added bh) When we purposely “skip” bible class, we do not serve ourself or our family. Take a few moments to understand this idea. 1. We short-change our CHILDREN Proverbs 14:26, Proverbs 20:7, Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 127:3 2. We…
