SINGING WITH THE UNDERSTANDING: “‘TIS MIDNIGHT, AND ON OLIVE’S BROW”

by Daniel Webster

    Neal Pollard Note from Daniel: the following article is by Neal Pollard, a gospel preacher who works in Kentucky. The title references 1 Corinthians 14:15 (NKJV), where Paul wrote, “I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.” It also references the old, beautiful hymn, “‘Tis Midnight, and on Olive’s […]

    A POSTURE OF COMMITMENT

    by Daniel Webster

                  Do you remember how, in school, there were people who were obviously only there because they had to be? (Probably most of the class!) And then there may have been some who seemed like they were there for a purpose. They asked questions, did the readings, completed the assignments on time. They were committed. […]

      SOME PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF “CHRIST IS ALL, AND IN ALL”

      by Daniel Webster

        Last Sunday, we studied what the Bible has to say about a very emotional topic in our society: racism. Before studying for that sermon, I did not realize just how universal the biblical emphasis is on the Gospel’s truly being for all—all income levels, all education levels, all criminal backgrounds, and, yes, all ethnicities. God […]

        THE ADVANTAGES OF ADVERSITY

        by Daniel Webster

          Note from Daniel: this article from Neal Pollard is worth sharing. It dovetails beautifully with the sermon yesterday. I hope everybody is having a great Monday morning! Since March Madness begins later this week, I was reading about all the teams to help me fill out my brackets. I came across the incredible story of […]

          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 […]

            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 […]

              THE ANSWER FOR ANXIETY

              by Daniel Webster

                In the All Comers class this past Tuesday, we studied Psalm 139. By the time we got to verse 23, we were pressed for time—which is a shame, because that verse is (from our perspective) one of the most pertinent and comforting verses in the entire psalm. It reads, “Search me, O God, and know […]

                WHAT SHOULD VISITORS HEAR WHEN THEY VISIT YOUR CHURCH?

                by Daniel Webster

                  Ben Giselbach This really made me think about a subject that we might not always think about as much as we should. Thought it would be good for everybody to get to read so we can always be trying to welcome visitors more effectively, even in the Covid era. Picture this: A man and his […]
