NEW WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE CLASS “Walking With Those Who Weep,”

by Dennis Gulledge

                In the Foreword of his little book, Words of Comfort, Ross W. Dye said, “On June 13, 1961 my elder son, Stanley Ross Dye, suffered a fatal accident. One cannot experience these bitter disappointments without being changed by them. I have been made increasingly aware of a deficiency in the church’s ministry of comfort.” […]

    ONE WHO FEARED GOD AND SHUNNED EVIL

    by Wayne Brewer

                  “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil” (Job 1:1). The author of the book of Job begins by describing the character and actions of the one that came to suffer so greatly because […]

      LANGUAGE OF ASHDOD

      by Dennis Gulledge

                    In the days when Judah returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity, Ezra and Nehemiah worked together to improve the conditions then prevailing. The problems they encountered were many, not the least of which was the fact that Jewish men had married women of Ashdod, Ammon and Moab (Neh. 13:23). A consequence of these […]

        A WONDERFUL SAVIOR

        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 […]

          RACISM AND THE RESTORATION MOVEMENT

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        Current events have no doubt prompted many gospel preachers to treat the subject of racism from the pulpit in the last few weeks. I did so this past Lord’s day in a sermon I called, “One Blood-All Nations,” from Acts 17:22-28. I have preached on the subject several times over the years and was […]

            WHAT ABOUT TAKING OATHS?

            by Dennis Gulledge

                          Recently it was my pleasure to participate in the summer series for the Acton church in Michie, TN. The theme was, “Difficult Sayings of Jesus.” My assignment was, “Do not take an oath at all” (Matt. 5:34). It was a joy to be with those brethren and to have a part in this series. […]

              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 […]

                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 […]

                  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 […]

                    THREE WORDS THAT MEAN MORE TO US NOW

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                      Bill Brandstatter             During this COVID-19 crisis, there are three words that should mean more to us now than they ever did before. These three words should mean a lot to us spiritually as well. Perhaps our understanding during the crisis will help us to see the importance of them in our spiritual life. The […]
