Tolerance

   It seems that we need to keep quiet if we want some members of our society to tolerate us. That is ironic since one of the qualities spoken of in our "new society" is tolerance. Some folk don't seem to understand that Christians are not supposed to keep quiet. We are commanded to spread the Gospel. They can't seem to understand how we can love people and still not love their actions. We are called haters, and even racists because we believe in living lives that are pleasing to God.

Autumn Nostalgia

I get a real kick out of viewing the posts various people make on the messages that scroll across the bottom of the TV screne on the local news.  Apparently a lot of people who are not familiar with the weather in the Gulf Coast area are distressed. They make statements like "Houston weather is Bipolar!", and "Why can't Houston weather make up its mind?" Apparently the truth that there is Someone who controls it all is alien to some folk.
 
 The ones of us who have lived here since birth are better prepared and actually love our climate.

Rejoice And Do Not Worry

A church member spoke to me lately about an unfortunate remark made by a person outside the church. Apparently this person, who is obviously ignorant about the Lord's relationship to His church, stated that the reason our church building was damaged was because we had asked a certain group to stop having meetings in our fellowship hall.
 
Now this is disturbing. Is it possible that someone could really believe that God would destroy His own house because His own people made a decision that did not set well with someone outside the church?

Preach the Word

   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"Preach the word." That was the instruction the Apostle Paul gave a young pastor named Timothy. It is good advice today too. As a matter of fact preaching the word should be stressed to all pastors and ministers today when so many are preaching a lot of other things than the Word of God. How we need preachers who will stand up and preach God's message for this Age of Grace in which we live. So many are trying to preach the Law of Moses or that good deeds will earn a person a home in Heaven.

Being an Overcomer

Recently I taught a Noon-time Bible class about being an overcomer
through Christ. I asked the question, "Do you ever feel overwhelmed?" Wow! I was nearly overwhelmed myself by the affirmative answers. Everyone in the class had something that caused her or him to feel overwhelmed. The truth is, everyday life, family responsibilities, duties on the job, financial set-backs, disappointments in general, and a wide array of circumstances may gang up on us and cause us to feel like there is no relief in sight.
