Translating the Bible into Life

by admin

 Translating the Bible into Life Dennis Abernathy I read a story about four preachers who were discussing their favorite translations of the Bible. One preacher preferred the King James Version because of its beautiful language. The second preacher liked the American Standard Version best because it translates more literally the original Hebrew and Greek. The […]

The Secret

by admin

The Secret Jere. E. Frost Why did Samuel say to Saul, “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams?” (1 Sam. 15:22). Because God would rather have us obey than to accomplish the most astounding feats or offer the most lavish praise. There is no substitute for obedience. […]

Some Facts about the Chruch

by admin

Some Facts about the Church Author Unknown   It is not a human denomination, but the spiritual body of Jesus Christ (Col. 1:18; I Pet. 2:5-6).   It was built by Christ and he is its foundation (Mt. 16:18; I Cor. 3:11).   Christ is its only head (Eph. 1:22-23).   It was purchased with […]

Immortality

by admin

Immortality Mike Johnson “Death is not a period but a comma in the story of life.” In a sentence, a common indicates a pause. A period is end punctuation, and is used to show the end of a sentence. With this idea in mind, the above quotation says a great deal. It speaks of the […]

To Whom Were They Speaking?

by admin

To Whom Were They Speaking Carrol R. Sutton In Acts 16:31 when Paul and Silas said: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house, they were speaking to an unbeliever, the jailor at Philippi. (Acts 16:12). In Acts 2:38 when Peter said: “Repent, and be baptized every one of […]

Jumping to Conclusions

by admin

Jumping to Conclusions Guthrie Dean An elderly lady, the self-appointed supervisor of a little rural village’s morals, accused a workman of having turned to drink because “with her own eyes” she had seen his wheelbarrow standing outside a tavern. The accused made no defense, but that evening he parked his wheelbarrow outside her house and […]

Correction is Grievous

by admin

Correction Is Grievous James W. Adams “Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way…. “ (Proverbs 15: 10). Few people are able to accept correction graciously. Our first inclination is always to justify self. This, no doubt, accounts for the bad spirit which is so manifest in brethren who have “forsaken the way” of […]

What Are You Making?

by admin

What Are You Making Phil Sanders While on a trip to Switzerland, an American businessman was watching a Swiss clock maker carving the case of an ornate cuckoo clock. As the businessman watched the clock maker carve out the case, he was astounded at his slow rate of progress. The businessman finally said, “My good […]

Send the Fire Truck!

by admin

Send the Fire Truck! Dudley Ross Spears In a small eastern Kentucky town, the local police chief also served as part of the Volunteer Fire Department. His job was to answer the phone and in the event of a fire was to ring the fire bell to summons all the volunteer firemen in the county. […]

What Needs Changing?

by admin

What Needs Changing? When you look into the mirror and your face appears dirty, it is your face, not the mirror that needs attention. The Bible is the mirror of the soul. It reveals our imperfections and shows us how to make corrections. However, some try to rework the Bible instead of reshaping their lives.

Which Bone Are You?

by admin

Which Bone Are You? Someone has divided church the church members into three general classes; the wishbones, the jawbones, and the backbones. The wishbones languidly hope that the church will prosper without them. The jawbones do the criticizing. The backbones get under the load and carry it along. Analyze yourself.  Which are you? From “The […]

The Bible: The Only Inspired Creed

by admin

The Bible:  The Only Inspired Creed Richie Thetford   In the denominational world you can find creed books that are used in addition to the Bible. Yet the apostle Paul tells us that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that […]

I’d Rather See a Sermon

by admin

I’d Rather See a Sermon Edgar A Guest   I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I’d rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way. The eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear, Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear; And the best of all […]

Attitude

by admin

Attitude “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It’s more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It’s more important than appearance, giftedness, or […]
