  • Don't Leave the Same Way You Came InChurch services should press us into service for our heavenly sovereign. Are you listening? Do you “behave thyself wisely in the house of God” (1Tim.3:15) so that you can go out by a way other than the one by which you entered?
  • The Fear of Loss Check out today’s news. In what ways are people acting on this fear of loss today? People desire gain and fear its loss. How do these motives keep people from accepting Jesus as their Saviour? How do they keep Christians from serving Christ?

  • Five Qualities of a Humble Man What is humility? James says, “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (v.10). So, what is humility? How does it work in our lives?
  • God is the Promise Keeper If God would break His promises to Israel, He might break other promises. But He never does. What other promises can we rest assured that He will keep?
  • The Habit of Giving:  Are we commanded to tithe in the age of grace?  What should we be giving if anything to our local churches?  This article deals with giving of finances but also with giving of ourselves.  What kind of habit should we have when it comes to giving?

  • His Word Will Come to PassNo other holy book for any major religion stakes its claim to authority on its ability to foretell the future. Only God’s word, the Holy Bible, takes this chance.
  • Homecoming!  Are you ready for a good old-fashioned homecoming?

  • Judge Me O Lord - When others speak wrongfully of you, what do you do?  Do you take that time to ask God if what is being said is true?  Do you turn to God and ask Him to search your heart for any wrong doing?  You may be surprised what God would do in your heart during the times when you have been done wrong.
  • Keep Your Eye on the Ball - Are you able to concentrate on the task at hand?  Jesus expected His disciples to have this trait.

  • Knowing God - Is knowing God nothing more than an intellectual exercise to the Bible-believer?  Are we allowed to have an experiential knowledge of Him?

  • Life Giving Water:  God's river brings eternal life to the believer in Christ so that “out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”. We are told how the blessed man “shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water”. Have you drunk from the living fountain?
  • Little is Much.  Are you discouraged in the ministry?  Here are a few encouraging quotes from Charles Spurgeon for those in the ministry who feel left behind.

  • The Marring of the Girdle - Do your sins leave you good for nothing in the sight of God?  Would you be willing to seek His face so that you might be a vessel of honour in His hands?

  • Mercy Killing - Is mercy killing or euthanasia acceptable to God?  Should we put to death those who are suffering with a terrible disease?

  • A Miracle of Fire - What is the condition of your personal altar?  Is it in good repair or do you need to work on it? God may not send fire from heaven, but God is ready to do great things in your life if you give yourself to Him.

  • Only a Link in the Chain: Alone, Moses climbed the rugged path to the top of Mount Pisgah in the land of Moab. Though preserved in body and mind, his 120 years (40 of them in the wilderness) made him worn in years and in battles. His last battle was his attempt to enter the Promised Land. He lost. He was to die after seeing the land from the mountain top.

  • The Vow of the Nazarite - A man or woman who took the vow of the Nazarite, did so of their own free will.  It was a person from the depths of their heart wanting to separate from the world and unto God.  Do you love God enough to separate yourself unto Him?
