The Privilege of Prayer

Privilege of Prayer. Have you ever considered the power and greatness of God? Have you ever contemplated that God spoke and the entire universe was created? Psalm 33:9 states,” For he spake, and it was done, he commanded, and it stood fast.” “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3).  Even down to the smallest detail, God planned and created everything. “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead:...

Whose Time Is it?

There are 168 hours in a week. How much time do we spend in doing certain things? It was very interesting. If a person comes to every service of the church, then the amount of time spent in doing this is only 2% of our week. Can you image that out of 168 hours only 2% is spent in service for the Lord! If one adds in travel time the most any one would spend is 4% of there time each week in service to the Lord! Now the average person spends 10% of their...

What is Truth?

Pilate asked this question when he had to deal with Jesus. Jesus said in the previous verse, “Thou sayest that I am a king.

Just before this statement Jesus in His prayer to the Father said, “For I have given unto them the words which...

Build You Up

As Paul is giving his farewell speech to the elders of Ephesus, there are several topics in which Paul is instructing them. They needed encouragement and so do we. First, he commends them to God. Paul will no longer be with them to guide them along the journey to eternity. They will have to turn to God’s Word to...Continue reading

A New Year

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).  There are several ideas presented in this passage that will be good for us to remember as we end 2011 and as we begin 2012. Let us notice them. First, Paul was not there yet! He was still working on receiving the crown of life which God...
