IN THE HEARING OF ALL THE PEOPLE

by Wayne Brewer

                During the earthly ministry of Jesus the authors often made a clear distinction between the disciples of Christ, the religious leaders of the day, and the people in general that had an interest in knowing about Jesus. There are several examples of this, but one can be found as Luke recorded: “Then, in the […]

    TURNED, SERVED, AND WAITED

    by Wayne Brewer

                  The apostle Paul was very thankful for the Lord’s church in Thessalonica because when Paul first arrived in the city it was a very difficult work to preach the gospel there. Some of the Jews responded to the gospel, “And some of them were persuaded…joined Paul and Silas…” (Acts 17:4), but the majority outright […]

      by Wayne Brewer

                    “With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:2-3). Most brethren desire to keep the unity of the Spirit in the church, but many times are not ready to do what is required individually and […]

          by Wayne Brewer

                        “A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord, he taketh my burden away…” Many Christians have sung the words of that song for decades with great feeling and meaning in their hearts. Jesus truly is a wonderful Savior, in fact, he is the only Savior. Let us consider some of the blessings found in having […]

            HOW DAVID RESPONDED TO THE LORD

            by Wayne Brewer

                          As one reads the book of Psalms it can be observed how David responded to the Lord. The Lord lived in the heart of David as did David in the heart of God and so it was natural for the Psalmist to express himself by responding to God. An observation of what David did […]

              THE CHALLENGES WHEN THERE ARE DIFFERENCES

              by Wayne Brewer

                The Lord’s church had not been in existence very long when the apostles faced a challenge. The problem that arose was between two different cultures, or as it was between the Hebrew brethren and the Hellenist or Greek speaking brethren (Acts 6:1). The Greek speaking brethren in Jerusalem were complaining against the Hebrew brethren because […]

                  The Psalmist wrote: “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever” (Psalm 107:1). David experienced many difficulties in his life from the time when he was a young shepherd boy tending his flock to when he became the second king of Israel. David suffered at times because of […]

                  by Wayne Brewer

                                “And the man (Adam) called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20). This is the first time that the word “mother” was used in the Word of God and it was used in a very personal way and also in an historical manner. Adam called his wife […]

                    KEEPING THE FAITH

                    by Wayne Brewer

                                  As the apostle Paul was coming towards the end of his life in a Roman prison he reflected upon his spiritual life and relationship with God. Paul knew that he had always done what he thought was right according to his understanding of the will of God. “Then Paul, looking earnestly at the council, […]
