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 […]

                FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER

                by Wayne Brewer

                  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 […]

                  MEN, WOMEN & SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP IN THE CHURCH

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                                What is it that most women want, but few find, in their relationship with men? Equal opportunity and pay in the work place? Dignity in the home? Who would ever guess that the answer might be male spiritual leadership?             Nowhere are there more critical issues at stake. The stability of homes, the sacredness […]

                    HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE – MOTHERS

                    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 […]
