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 […]

    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 […]

      BUILD HOUSES AND PLANT GARDENS

      by Wayne Brewer

        by Wayne Brewer The people of God were very surprised when Jerusalem was captured, and thousands offamilies were taken captive and transported to Babylon. The Lord had allowed this to happen because of the arrogant disobedience of the children of Israel. The people had begun to listen to the nations around them and to their […]

        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. […]

            SUPPRESS THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

            by Wayne Brewer

                          The brethren of the first century lived in a world that was dominated by godlessness and idolatrous influences and the evidence of that is seen in the letters that the apostle Paul wrote to the various congregations of the Lord’s church. To the church in Corinth Paul wrote referring to a whole list of […]

              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 […]

                    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. […]
