    DISTRACTED LIVING

    by Wayne Brewer

      When cars first came on the scene back in the early 1900’s there may have been some things about them that would have distracted the driver, but certainly far different from 2018. The cars were creeping along at 7 to 12 miles per hour and so there was plenty of time to make a decision […]

        Jesus said; “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

        by Wayne Brewer

          Jesus said; “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Essentially Jesus was saying to everyone “come as you are”.

          by Wayne Brewer

            One of the most well known hymns is “Bring Them In” written in 1885 by Alexcenah Thomas.

            WALK IN WISDOM

            by Wayne Brewer

              The Apostle Paul wrote, “Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time” (Colossians 4:5). These inspired words place a great responsibility upon the Christian to live in manner that brings glory to Christ before those who are without Christ. Jesus had previously said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they […]

              TO WHOM WILL YOU GO?

              by Wayne Brewer

                It is a fact that the Christian will have difficulties and problems while living in this earthly life and these problems will touch every aspect of the Christian’s life, but the question is; to whom will a child of God go in order to receive advice in times of trouble? The prophet Isaiah wrote to […]

                THE VALUE OF FOREIGN MISSION WORK

                by Wayne Brewer

                  What is the value of American Christians traveling to foreign countries to do mission work when there are lost souls right at our back door? That is a question that is sometimes asked by brethren. It is true that the Lord’s work locally must never be neglected. A congregation must always seek to reach out […]

                  THE MERCY OF THE LORD

                  by Wayne Brewer

                    Throughout the history of the Old Testament the people of God often found themselves in very difficult situations and quite often the reason was because they forgot who they were. They became so involved in this world that their identity became blurred to them and to everyone else around them. What they came to need […]

                    THE BIBLE OR OPINION, WHICH?

                    by Wayne Brewer

                      “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). This passage lays the foundation principle regarding the fact that the Bible is the authority by which the church worships and works. […]
