People Who Pray are Vital to the Body of Christ

Prayer prompts God to do things in the lives of His people that He may not have otherwise done.   The whole of Scripture tells us that God hears and answers the cries of his people.  The Bible stresses the great importance of asking Him what we need both in this life and for eternity.  [...]

A Christmas Communion Message

The Gospel of John takes a different approach than the traditional way the Christmas story is told in the other Gospels.  He begins his book by saying this: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Instead of putting the story of Christmas with the shepherds and angels [...]

Practically Speaking, How Do You Serve Jesus?

What you do for the people at church, you do as unto Jesus Himself.  Jesus makes this point abundantly clear in Matthew 25.  In the parable of the sheep and the goats, He describes two groups of people: One group is righteous. The other is not. He describes the actions of the righteous people [...]

The Gift of “God With Us”

The coming of the Messiah was greatly anticipated in the Old Testament.  For centuries, those who were faithful to the scriptures looked forward to a Messiah who would set men free from their sin and establish a new covenant with God’s people.  The prophet Jeremiah said it this way: 31 “Behold, the days are coming, [...]

Hear it and Do it

An English teacher might call James 1:22 the “thesis statement” for the book of James.  It says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”  Let me give you an illustration that might help you better understand what James in saying: Let’s say that you own a print [...]

God’s Way and Exquisite Experiences

It says in Genesis 3:2-3, “2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” Satan brings into question [...]

God Never Tempts

James 1:13 says, “13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.”  No one can blame God for their actions.  Consider Adam and Eve in the garden.  Adam tried to blame God for his action.  He argued [...]
