“HEAVEN WILL SURELY BE WORTH IT ALL”

by Dennis Gulledge

    By Edd Sterchi          Many decades ago, on a Sunday morning, I was in a 15-passenger van with a member of the local congregation picking up kids to bring them to Bible study. I remember it as if it were yesterday. The van was packed to the gills with children, and my job was crowd […]

    THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

    by Daniel Webster

      I read this recently and wanted to share it with you all. It is such a beautiful thought: “The financial assistance by gentile churches for Jewish churches in Palestine (2 Cor. 8–9) was one of the crown jewels of Paul’s ministry. Jew–gentile animosities were at least as active and deadly as racial or ethnic tensions anywhere […]

      FACE TO FACE

      by Wayne Brewer

                    Next month on March 11 it will have been a year since the first recorded case of Covid-19 in the state of Arkansas. The coronavirus pandemic became a reality as businesses, schools, places of recreation, and even church buildings were closed for a while. Since that time precautions have been put in place and […]

        FEW

        by Dennis Gulledge

                      Recently, on Facebook, someone posted a picture of a church attendance board and said, “Few will know what this is.” In that case I was among the few. The numbers must have reflected things of a few decades ago because the PM count was only a few less than the AM count. These days […]

          You Have Trusted in Your Own Beauty

          by Wayne Brewer

                        The prophet Ezekiel lived among the exiles in Babylon and while there he preached the Word of God to them. For the most part the Jews did not really understand why Jerusalem had been destroyed and many of them carried off into captivity, and especially since they were the descents of Abraham, Isaac, and […]

            IF WE TREATED SIN LIKE COVID

            by Daniel Webster

              Note from Daniel: This is not meant to denigrate the severity of the virus or the need for safety in any way. Rather, hopefully this will be a reminder to us that we all are exposed to an even more deadly virus on a daily basis that we must fight with even more gravity. We’d socially distance […]

              IT WAS A FAMILY AFFAIR

              by Wayne Brewer

                            Since the beginning the family has proven to be the strength or the weakness of a culture, society, nation, community, and even a congregation of the Lord’s church, depending upon if the family goes with God or against him. There came a time in the history of God’s people in the Old Testament when […]

                THE MOST DIFFICULT COMMAND

                by Dennis Gulledge

                              As I was preparing for my Wednesday night Bible class recently I came across an interesting statement from the late brother Franklin Camp. He was discussing Eve’s transgression in Genesis 3:6, and said, “The essence of her sin was self will and rejected the will of God (sic). That’s the reason for a long […]

                  PSALM 117

                  by Wayne Brewer

                                “Praise the Lord, all ye nations; praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endureth forever. Praise ye the Lord” (Psalm 117). The message of the Psalm is brief, but powerful.  At least three times in this Psalm the word “praise” is seen, […]

                    GREET ONE ANOTHER

                    by Wayne Brewer

                                  The apostle Paul wrote the brethren in Rome “Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you” (Romans 16:16). Throughout history various cultures have had distinct ways of greeting another person. One of the common customs that Paul referred to was as is still the custom in some countries and […]
