Through The Faith of 'OTHERS'

2011 May 29

Jesus healed His people in many ways. Sometimes He would just speak some words, and the person would be healed. At other times, He would touch the sinner, and the problem would immediately depart from the helpless victim. We find lepers, begging for an audience with Christ; and a woman, pressing through a crowd with a hope in her heart that she might just touch Him. Here we find a great lesson for us all. A helpless sinner is healed, not by his own seeking, but through the faith of his friends. Perhaps we can learn a lesson from this notable miracle, and help one of our loved ones who has fallen prey to Satan.

A New Year's Promise

2007 March 05

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus"- Philippians 4:19 The Philippian church was special to the apostle Paul. In this epistle he refers to them as "my brethren dearly beloved and long for, my joy and crown." One of the reasons he loved them so much was because of their care for him. When he was in prison they sent to his needs, a gift at the hand of Epaphroditus that he referred to as "an odour of a ...

WHICH WAS THE GREATEST MIRACLE?

2006 March 12

"Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." On this notable occasion we have two worshippers, apostles of Jesus Christ, entering the temple to pray. Peter and John, friends in the faith, were doing what they had always done at the ninth hour of the day, three p.m. our time: they were going to worship. There was no television cameras planted. There was no music director to move the emotions of people. There was no program to follow. There were not even any seats for spectators to admire what they were ...

FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS

2002 April 02

Today we would pose a question to all: "Is there a benefit in serving God: is there a benefit in going to God's house; is there a benefit in reading His word; is there a benefit in prayer; in private devotions; to Christian living?" How do you feel about it? What is your opinion? We pose the question not to condemn those who would answer in the negative. Rather, we pose the question as an encouragement to those who feel in their hearts that there is a benefit in serving God for there are times of wonder and amazement when we notice as Job did that, "The tabernacles of robbers prosper ...

January 2001

2001 January 01

JANUARY 2001 From the pastor Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. For quite some time I have wanted to communicate with our church, visitors and friends by way of a pastoral letter. I hope it will serve as an encouragement to you all as well as a catalyst to keep us all of one heart and mind as we serve the Lord. A new year, as well as a new millennium is upon us. It seemed a fitting time to remember past blessings as well as a time to consider some new years resolutions. The first Sunday of this year, I began a series of messages entitled, "New Yea ...

#83 IN THE VALLEY

2000 April 15

"And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water"-Genesis 26:19 Wells of springing water are seldom found on the mountain top. We must descend into the valley. Such we will find in our spiritual exercises. Though we all love the mountain top experiences, we cannot live there, the air is too thin. I have met those who claim they dwell there all the time. But I can not claim such an experience. Through much digging some water may be found upon the mountain, but "springing wat ...

#75 How we are born again

2000 February 19

"The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit"-John 3:8 Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews, has come to Jesus by night making his confession, "We know that thou art a teacher come from God." He came at night, fearing his privileged position among his Jewish brethren. He preferred his seat in the synagogue above fellowship with Christ. But a confused teacher we find him to be concerning how we ar ...

As hard as we may try to choose just the perfect gifts for ...

Salvation (Part 2)

1993 July 01

SALVATION (Part 2) "For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gai ...
