  1. - When It All Goes Wrong –

    Genesis 39:23, “The LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper”
    James 1:3, “The testing of your faith produces patience”
    __________

    Some of the best sermons I’ve ever heard weren’t preached from the pulpit, but from the beds of sick people. The deepest truths of God’s Word have often been taught by those humble individuals who have gone through the school of affliction. With very few exceptions, the most cheerful people I’ve met have been those ...

  2. - A God Shaped Vacuum –

    Matthew 7:7, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find”
    __________

    French physicist, mathematician, and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) said, "There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus." I submit to you that Pascal knew what he was talking about. You see, he wasn’t simply referring to emptiness. He was speaking about a drawing - an ...

    "What's In a Name?"
    Part III


    Okay, so we left Paul with the Pagans in Lystra trying to patch up a horrible misunderstanding. (Acts 14).

Circumcision was being taught by many as the logical outcome of Christ's 'Jewishness', the law of Moses must be followed by the Gentiles. Paul strenuously opposed this, as he did the Gentile interpretation in Lystra. If you ...

    Psalm 119:89, "Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in heaven”

    Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths”

    A safe course has been charted in this life for every born-again-believer who has placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. My brethren, that course is found only in God's precious Word. It's that narrow ...

    "What's In a Name?"
    Part II

    In the first part I chronicled Paul's work in Athens and distinguished it from the earlier work in Thessalonica and Berea. Athens was somewhat of a cultural estuary that typified some of the attitudes among the cultural elite in the Hellenic settings of the world that Paul traveled in. Paul, the Pharisee, was able to communicate with the Greeks because he could become like 'one not under the law'. His experience there typifies what we ...
