Will God Make Exceptions On Judgment Day?

This statement, “There is an exception to every rule.” Is not found in the Bible. However, it is seemingly a statement of truth. Exceptions for rules is a practice for which we have become accustom in our society. People expect exception to rules to be made on their behalf. The speed limit on most interstates is 70 miles per hour except for most people driving on them. That is only the speed limit for the few people who are pulled over for speeding. On judgment day many will want God to make exceptions to His...Continue reading

Another Step

We have one high school graduate. As a person graduates from one level to the next we often say these graduates are taking a new step in their life. It is so true that new adventures are opening up for each student. Some steps are bigger than others, but they are steps along the pathway of life. The Bible talks of a pathway of life, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because...Continue reading

History

Romans 15:4 states, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” This year we have an high school senior. There are several others who are graduating from milestone to another; they are graduating from either kindergarten or sixth grade, for this we are thankful and grateful. We are surprised that our children are growing up so fast, from children toward adulthood! Some can remember when these young people were held in arms. This is history! How we love this kind...Continue reading

Have YOU Counted the Cost?

There is a religious song by the title above. The lyrics are: “There’s a line that is drawn by rejecting our Lord, Where the call of His Spirit is lost, and you hurry along with the pleasure mad throng, Have you counted, have you counted the cost? You may barter your hope of eternity’s morn, for a moment of joy at the most, for the glitter of sin and the things it will win, Have you counted, have you counted the cost? While the door of His mercy is open to you, E’er the depth...Continue reading

Gospel Demands

Titus 2:11-14, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Within this passage there are some things that we are to deny ourselves. They are ungodliness and worldly lust....Continue reading

A Remodel Life

Romans 12:1-2 states, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” The word “transformed” is the idea of metamorphosed; it is the idea of change.  We may remodel or change our physical house. If we relate what is necessary to remodel our physical house...Continue reading

What Kind of Soil Are You?

In Matthew 13 and Luke 8 the parable of the soils is found. There is the soil of the wayside. There is the soil in the stony places. There is the soil among the thorns and there is the good kind of soil. Most of would like to be the good kind of soil but are we? Most of us would like to think that our friends are good soil, but that does not make it so. We need to take a good hard look at what kind of soil we are. Within the Future...

Traditions versus Divine Law

“Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandments of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother; and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by...Continue reading

That’s Just His Opinion

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and search the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” These that were “more noble” were the Jews in the city of Berea. The reason they were “more noble” was because they “received the word with all readiness of mind.” Here was a group of people that listened to what was being preached with eagerness. Notice that the passage says, … and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” How often do you take...Continue reading

The Voice of God

Three times God the Father audibly spoke during the life of His Son. One was after His baptism (Matthew 3:17 “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”) Another time is at the Mount of Transfiguration. Jesus has with Him Peter, James, and John. Peter acting like he did most of the time, spoke. He mentioned building three tabernacles: one for Him, one for Moses and one for Elias. This was a good thought as far as Peter was concerned. He was thinking of honoring...Continue reading
