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 […]

    EIGHT DAYS STRAIGHT

    by Wayne Brewer

      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).

      Come As You Are

      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”.

        BRING THEM IN

        by Wayne Brewer

          One of the most well known hymns is “Bring Them In” written in 1885 by Alexcenah Thomas. You might remember this hymn that is poetically reminding the church of its responsibility to carry out the Great Commission and seek the lost.

          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. […]

                    BAPTISM WITHOUT REPENTANCE

                    by Wayne Brewer

                      On one occasion when multitudes of people came out to Jesus in order that they might be baptized by him and He said to them: “Brood of vipers. Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance … ” (Luke 3:7-8). One would think that Jesus would have […]
