The Church of Jesus Christ

We are the body of Christ, the church (Col 1.16). We have remained the church the whole time we have been meeting outside. We are the church when we come together for worship, and we remain the church when we leave (Eph 1.20ff). Having to meet in a different spot is only a matter of our traditions, not a matter of our identity. God is who gives us our identity (I Cor 1.9ff), not traditions of men. Meeting inside the…

A Christian in Strange Times

The times we live in are strange to say the least. In our country alone we have seen a seemingly endless stream of ridiculousness and negativity reign while civility and common decency appear to be ignored. In our churches we are seeing anger over whether or not one should wear a mask, Christians condemning one another over their choice of political party or over their health concerns, and disputes erupting over meeting times and locations. In our schools, parents are…

Learn and be Encouraged…

Sunday September 27th we will have a gathering at 3:15PM, in the annex, to talk about evangelism. The lesson that morning will center on this great work that Jesus has given to us. Let me say a word to the one who thinks that they are not able to teach the gospel, where you sit down and study the Bible with someone. The whole purpose of our Christian life is to grow in our knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ…

Priorities of Life and Godliness

There are times in every person’s life where the spiritual side takes a backseat to the worldly side. There are times in every person’s life where the decisions they make center solely around their own selfish desires and not the glory of God. However, when we truly examine those disastrous moments in our lives, we must see them for what they are: a blatant denial of Jesus Christ and His sacrificial love for us. In those moments we take the…

Uncertain Times Call for Certainty in a Faithful God

Hezekiah is a good king of Israel. During his reign, he has to deal with a threat of the Assyrian king coming in to destroy Jerusalem. The king receives verbal threats, along with a letter, with a discouraging word to him, and all the people. The king “spread out the letter before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed…” (Isa 36.14-15). Hezekiah was told that his life was going to end. He humbled himself and prayed to God (Isa 38.1-3). So here…

What to Trust

“If you can trust God to save you for eternity, you can trust Him to lead you for a lifetime.” — David Platt There are very few absolute certainties in life. Some are simply matters of happenstance – for example, when anyone sees a newborn baby they will state “How cute!” – but there are precious few things in life that you can absolutely put all of your trust in. As a matter of fact, there really is only one…

One of One

“‘Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?’ And Jesus answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by me.’” (Matthew 11:3b-6) Our study today is taking a look at the…

Conflict . . .

I plead with Euodia and Syntyche to be of one mind in the Lord. Yes, I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life. Philippians 4.2-3. Conflict is inevitable. Jesus taught about how we must conduct our lives. He taught the body to be different than the world. So, the ways that we deal with conflict cannot follow…
