In Acts 3:6 Peter said to the lame man; “… such as I have give I thee …” What did Peter have. Peter had physical and spiritual wholeness which he had received at the time of the new birth. With the new birth comes the fulfillment of what the remembrance of the bread and wine of communion represent for all Christians. When we observe the remembrance of the broken body...

PRAISE AND POWER                                  DEAD OR ALIVE                              May 16, 2018
Most all of us have heard about what are called “life or death situations.” Often a person has been called upon to make a split-second decision to put themselves in danger in order to save another. Sometimes people don’t act because they fear the possibility of dying. Many people do not realize what Christ has accomplished regarding life and death. Speaking of this in light of Jesus Christ,...

PRAISE AND POWER                         GO TO THE LIGHT                         May 10, 2018
There is a lesson we can learn from insects. At night as soon as a porch light is turned on, insects are drawn to the light. When we walk out of our door at night during the warmer months we are greeted by the buzz of insects that are around the light. We live in a world, which when compared with God’s Word, is full of darkness. At times worldly...

PRAISE AND POWER                             Walking in Trust                             April 27, 2018
How much do we really trust God? Do we trust Him in the small as well as the big challenges in our lives? Even when tragic events occur whether in our lives or reported on TV and in the newspapers; we can have inner peace because we trust God. He wants to care for us day by day, all day long, just as an earthly father wants to care for...

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14) God tells us to wait on Him. Instead, we often want to do things according to our timing. We live in an “instant generation.” We want it and we want it NOW. We have instant potatoes, instant pudding, microwaves, and e-mail. We are an impatient people, and yet...

In the Bowens’ kitchen, on their refrigerator was a magnet plaque that said, "Father, what can I do for you today?" There is also a song that says, "Good Morning Lord. What can I do for you today? Where can I start to do my part to help someone along the way?"
There is lots of instruction in God’s Word regarding our daily walk with God. To know God's will we...

In Exodus 14 and 15, we find the children of Israel released from captivity in Egypt, and traveling toward the land God had promised them. God was leading them with a pillar of a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The Egyptians had hardened their hearts against Israel, and pursued them with an army. As this army was coming upon the impassable Red Sea the children of...

PRAISE AND POWER               RESURRECTION AND SALVATION                March 29, 2018
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:9) This is an important truth for all. Without believing that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead there is no salvation.
Early in his ministry, Jesus preached things concerning the kingdom of God. But at a certain point his preaching...

Christian believers have, in a large part, been silenced by the disapproval and ridicule by the world. Believers in the Old Testament knew prosperity, splendor, and excellence. We don't see as much of this today. Sometimes we can't distinguish Christians from the world because they fail to go to the one and only source of the greatest guidance ever - wisdom from God.
Spiritual wisdom is available to Christians alone...

“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” (I Thessalonians 2:13) There are two lessons here.

PRAISE AND POWER                       THE SET-APART DIET                      February 20, 2018
Lots of people are on diets today. We can choose to enjoy a diet of God’s Word. “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16) I grew up going to a denominational Christian church. I tried to read and understand the...

For many of us as Christians, when making decisions, it is no longer a question of what is good or what is bad. We have already solved that problem. But it becomes a question of what is good verses what is best. We know the right thing to do and usually do it. But our motivation, why and how we do what we do may be our challenge. I Corinthians 12:31...

Many institutions of higher learning have John 8:32 as its moto: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” This verse is quoted out of context. Let’s look at the context; “As he spake these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know...
