What is Man?

Posted on Sep 17, 2021 in Articles

What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him? Job 7:17 We often hear people say “they want to learn who they are”. It is true as we grow and mature, we need to have a grasp on what brings us contentment and happiness and we could even say learn our own strengths and weaknesses and so on. However, we need to always consider who we are as people and what our relationship to God is. No matter how different we are as individuals, all people are the same before God concerning His commandments for us and His desire of us being right with Him. Acts...

Am I Getting Weak? Pt.2

Posted on Sep 16, 2021 in Articles

But I have this against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love. Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:4-5 Have you ever said “I’m just not as strong as I used to be”? We began with this thought in our last article and will conclude it with this one. Making sure we do those things necessary to maintain spiritual well-being has never been a more needed study than right now. Life is filled with things that could so easily distract us or cause us to...

Am I Getting Weak? Pt.1

Posted on Aug 26, 2021 in Articles

But I have this against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love. Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:4-5 Have you ever said “I’m just not as strong as I used to be”? It might happen as we are doing some type of physical activity that we realize this or an injury or sickness makes us weak for a period of time. Physical weakness is quickly detected in most instances, however becoming spiritually weak is oftentimes far more subtle. One symptom of...

Do I Look for Something Different?

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 This is a thought or comment we often extend, generally as a passing statement. We look to passages such as 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light,”  and point out the...

Why I Believe the Bible

Posted on Aug 12, 2021 in Articles

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6 In times past if someone had asked me ‘why do you believe the Bible?’, my answer may have been, “well it’s just something I’ve always believed or it’s been a part of my life since birth”. While it is a wonderful thing to have this foundation we are to always give a definite answer to such questions. 1 Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that...

What Manner of Persons?

Posted on Aug 6, 2021 in Articles

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness. 2 Peter 3:11 Obedience to God is the core of living a Christian life. We must submit ourselves unto the teachings of His Holy Word (Heb 12:1-2). As a Christian, one must realize we are members of the New Testament church (Acts 2:38-47) and we have taken on certain responsibilities (Rom 6:1-4). Our text for this article, 2 Peter 3:11, is written to us in view of eternity and could also be translated “ought ye be found.” Simply put, live every day like it will be...
