WHICH WAY WILL YOU CHOOSE?

by Noah Icenhour

    Psalm 1 In Psalm 1, the reader is presented with two ways of life. The ESV translators included an added title accurately describing this section as “The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked.” We have the freedom to choose which path we will travel in this life. The Psalmist encourages the reader to travel […]

    BECAUSE OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS

    by Wayne Brewer

      As the children of Israel were about to cross over the Jordan River and begin the conquest of the land of Canaan, the promised land, the Lord assured them that he would go before them and it would be he who would destroy the nations. “Therefore understand today that the Lord your God is He […]

      HOW JESUS TREATED LOST PEOPLE

      by Dennis Gulledge

        Luke 7 makes for a good study of how Jesus treated lost people. In vs. 34 the Lord sites some of the charges spoken against him. The basis for such criticism was his association with people who were “sinners,” being outside the inner sanctum of pharisaic fellowship. Jesus was neither a glutton nor a social […]

When an elder of the church was asked about it he said, “It was not much of a meeting. Oh, brother Harding did his usually powerful preaching, the attendance was fair, […]

          THE HEART FOR GROWTH FROM 2 CORINTHIANS

          by Dennis Gulledge

            In January 2011, I began preaching a series of sermons based on 2 Corinthians. I titled the series, “Authentic Christianity.” That series taught me some things about how a preacher relates to a troubled congregation, such as the one at Corinth. So deeply has this impression been made upon me that I wish 2 Corinthians […]

            ANOTHER GENERATION AFTER THEM

            by Wayne Brewer

              One of the great servants of God that came out of Egypt, was in the wilderness for forty years, and lead the children of Israel to the promised land of Canaan was Joshua. He was a godly leader that understood the needs of the various generations that he lived among. Joshua’s words of wisdom and […]

                  THE LORD IS MY PORTION

                  by Wayne Brewer

                    “The Lord is my portion”, says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him” (Lamentations 3:25). The year is about 586 B.C. and Jeremiah laments that Jerusalem is in ruins as a result of the Babylonian invasion. Jerusalem was once a great city, but now because the people had departed from God’s way the city is […]

                    by Noah Icenhour

                      Let me tell you something very obvious: we all have a past behind us. Each one of us has a history and a story about how we got where we are today. This story is filled with experiences that are memorable, comforting and joyful. This story is also chained to experiences that are painful, devastating […]
