The Word of God

The word of God is powerful, and active (Heb 4.12-13). It’s power is described as a double-edged sword in that passage. A sword is special, and powerful. In the 1st Century, the sword was winning and conquering lands. It was able to be used to take the life of another, even with potential protections in place, like a shield. The aspect in particular view is the fact that it is able to “penetrate.” Like a metal sword could easily penetrate a man’s flesh, so the power of the word of…

Following Directions

How many times have you been given a project or a place to go and stopped to look at the instructions? For some, they read every part of the instruction manual before they even begin the project. Those same people map out their path from point A to point B before even cranking the car.

A list of items needed is enclosed in each box. Please go by…

“‘Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation, anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him.’” (Acts 10:34-35) These words, spoken by Peter, carry a heavy responsibility for us as Christians. There is no room in the heart of someone who claims Christ for prejudice, racism, or anything of its type. We have all heard sermons or classes taught from this chapter and have nodded our heads when these words are read because we are relieved to know that God is…

Hope to the Hopeless

“And He [Jesus] went with him…” (Mark 5:24a) This morning we are going to be looking at how Jesus gives hope to the hopeless. In the account found in Mark 5, two people come to Jesus in two totally different ways. One, a ruler of the synagogue, came to Jesus boldly, imploring Jesus earnestly to come and heal his little daughter who was at the point of death. The other hid from Jesus and nervously touched the hem of His garment as He passed by. In…
