It’s Not Easy To Be A Christian

Christ did not so much give rules for special cases—as principles to govern all conduct. “I tell you who hear Me: Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you.” Luke 6:27 Loving enemies is not a natural affection. This is not an easy lesson to learn! It is never easy to be a …

The Healthy Church

There should be some non-negotiables on which you must never compromise. In particular, make certain that the church is committed to: The Bible as the fully inspired, inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God. That God is exalted as holy, sovereign and all-wise. That salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. …

Good Works and Motive

“But when you give to the needy — do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret.” Matthew 6:3-4 There are some people who want every good thing they do, to be well advertised. If they give money to some good cause — …

The One True Church

The one true Church is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus. It is made up of all God’s elect – of all converted men and women – of all true Christians. In whomever we can discern the election of God the Father, the sprinkling of the blood of God the Son, the sanctifying …

John’s Great Testimony

I was reminded in our men’s study last night that our Lord Jesus has always existed from the beginning. What a great testimony the apostle gives here. What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the …

What Is It To Accept Jesus?

This is the very first time I was introduce to A. W. Tozer. I have appreciated him ever since. So much so, I own his entire collection of works. Though I don’t agree with everything he believes (minor doctrine), he is still one my heroes of the faith. This sermon, is him preaching at a …

Bad Company Corrupts Good Morals

I don’t know about you, but I always wondered about these words. Evidently Paul is quoting an old proverb… I am going to start a brief series on Self-Control, but before I get to it, I need to build up to it. Paul tells the church at Corinth to stop sinning! Yes, you read that …

Many Convincing Proofs

After Jesus was raised from the dead, it says He was with them for forty days. I love the very first words in Acts 1:1-3 The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by …

Come to Jesus and Live!

I believe most people in Contemporary Christianity have never heard the words “penal substitution.” But to the student of the Bible they are precious words found throughout the word of God. Peter wrote these words and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and …

Passion Week

I wanted to choose each day an event that took place after Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. I’m quite sure this passed weekend you either read, watched or listened to a sermon about the the triumphal entry. What about the events that happen right after and before Jesus was brought first to Annas …
