THE GOSPEL INVITATION

by Dennis Gulledge

    My Wednesday night Bible class has been studying in Matthew 22. I am spending some time on the parable of the wedding feast in verses 1-14. The emphasis we have given to the Lord’s invitation has been fascinating to me and I want to treat it again in this article. Entrance into the kingdom of […]

    “DO YOU THINK THAT THEY WERE WORSE SINNERS…?”

    by Dennis Gulledge

      NOTE: I ran this article in our E-bulletin in the wake of a mass shooting in Orlando, Florida in 2016. Brian Kenyon is a friend of mine and I appreciate his insights into such tragedies as these. I am using the article again because of my focus on Luke 13:1-5 in last Sunday morning’s sermon. […]

      BAPTIZING THE CHILDREN OF CHRISTIANS

      by Dennis Gulledge

                    When a person obeys the gospel, we know that there is rejoicing in heaven (Lk. 15:7). As if to put a damper on this reality it is the idea of some that heavenly elation is louder if conversions come from people who have no filial connection to members of churches of Christ. The impression […]

        INNER AND OUTER MODESTY

        by Dennis Gulledge

                      We are in the month of the year that might well be called the “off season.” When the weather warms up the clothes typically come off. Modesty should be a conviction for a Christian as deeply rooted as any moral or doctrinal tenet that we might hold. Yet, people are weak in this area. […]

          WHO REALLY IS DIFFERENT?

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        Churches of Christ that continue to reject the addition of musical instruments to their worship services continue to be viewed as “different” by the religious world at large. Jack Lewis expressed it well, when he wrote, “Those who sing unaccompanied by musical instruments today are in a sufficient minority to appear strange in the […]

            “SUNDAY NIGHT SAINTS”

            by Dennis Gulledge

                          In a recent Facebook post Aubrey Johnson wrote, “On Mondays, I do a lot of preparation for Sunday. Sunday night’s sermon comes first. Then the morning message. No half measure for Sunday night. People who devote their evening to a second assembly deserve nothing less than my best. I love Sunday nights, and I […]

              47 YEARS A PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL

              by Dennis Gulledge

                            This year marks 47 years that I have been a gospel preacher. A kid still in some ways perhaps, but right now I can’t think of any. Maybe that makes me a bit of an old-timer, not necessarily in the class of old-time favorites. It is true that I enjoy preaching more now than […]

                OUR GOSPEL MEETING WITH DAVID LIPE (June 6-9)

                by Dennis Gulledge

                  I would like for you to know a little about brother David Lipe, who is scheduled to hold our gospel meeting this year. As you will see from the biographical information below brother Lipe has been quite accomplished at directing sound and effective lectureship programs over the years. My knowledge of him has largely been […]

                  THE TRANSFIGURATION OF CHRIST

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                                The transfiguration was an amazing event in the life of Jesus Christ, and a memorable occasion for three disciples. Jesus, at this time, is in the closing months of his life on earth prior to his crucifixion. The account of this remarkable event may be found in Matthew 17:1-9; Mark 9:2-9 and Luke 9:28-36.  […]

                    “EASTER” AND THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                                  Many people will awaken like the springtime all around us and make their annual appearance at an “Easter service” somewhere. Easter is not complete without a sunrise church service, so they will force themselves to rise with the Robins and be there somewhere. Many denominations (and some churches of Christ) will attempt to draw […]
