Only the Foolish are Saved

I have listened to many sermons over the years, and like many, I have my favorite pastors that I like to listen to on the radio or online. A trap that we may encounter is trying to find that one sermon or that one book to really help us to learn what we need to …

The Purpose of the Law

If you are familiar with the famous DISC profile, than you may well know that a high C personality loves rules and will do everything possible to follow them.  I want my accountant to be a high C personality because I know that none of the complicated IRS rules will be broken in my taxes; …

The Vision Fulfilled

Life is not destined to carry on as it is now.  Some things we can control and some we cannot.  The worst thing we can do is resign ourselves to poor life circumstances.  In our finances, many people will believe that they will always have a car payment or a credit card balance.  How many …

The Purpose of the Church Part 2

Last week I discussed the first purpose of the church being to equip the believers for the ministry of the Gospel.  The church leaders should be teaching the congregation a sound Gospel from the Scriptures, neither focusing on attracting large attendance numbers nor on modern marketing campaigns.  While the leaders focus on teaching and clarifying …

Praying For a Crop Failure

It is sad that in America today, many Christians are praying for crop failures. If we live our life seeking pleasure from things that are against the Word of God, and then we pray that the consequences of those actions will not happen, we are praying for a crop failure. One author has said, “Many …

Clean Out the Closet

As we approach the idea of sanctification, I am reminded of a fabulous little book that should be read by every Christian, every year: My Heart-Christ’s Home by Robert Boyd Munger. This little book takes only an hour or so to read and is generally found as a little booklet near the checkout of Christian …
