Speaking to believers, Peter said, ”Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles” (1Peter 2:12). This speaks of our behavior before the world. Honestspeaks of more than just a person’s integrity. The word is translated Kalos in Greek which means good and beautiful. Conversation refers to more than the mouth but to the entire manner of life. “That they by your good works glorify God in the da...

Peter was a strong, impulsive fisherman, yet when he met Jesus, he bowed to his Lord. In his later years, when he wrote this letter of encouragement to the believers, he spoke of love, hope, humility, and our precious Jesus. This week's message is The Precious Stone from I Peter 2:4-7. In this passage we are reminded of how precious our Savior is and in turn how precious our lives are because ...

Inquiring Minds Want To Know! From 1 Peter 1:10-12, we see that the prophets prayed and diligently sought to understand the age when the Messiah would be sent to save men. They wanted to know the very same thing that the Lord’s disciples wanted to know when they asked about the Lord’s return. When shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world? (Matthew ...

I’m not sure why, but preachers always seem to feel the need to come up with gimmicks or stories to use right before the offering, to motivate people to give. I’ve never felt the need to concoct anything like that in our church. The Word of God gives us so many amazing reasons for giving to Him, that we shouldn’t need any gimmicks to motivate people to give. In 2 Corinthians 8:9 we find five moti...

During the month of January, we're looking at "How to Have a Healthy Church". In the Old Testament, during the time of the Babylonian exile, we find that the people of God and the city of Jerusalem were in terrible condition. The temple was a mess and the wall around the city was falling down. The Jews desperately needed someone who had a vision to restore Jerusalem to her former glory. They nee...

The story is told of a young mother putting away the nativity set after Christmas, when she noticed that Baby Jesus was missing. When she asked her four-year-old son if he knew where Jesus was, he replied, “Yes, but He doesn’t want me to tell anybody.” “Why not?” she asked. “Because He doesn’t want to be put away with the decorations and forgotten,” he said. Wisdom from the lips of a child!When yo...

Let’s face it, the Christmas season is loved by many and hated by just as many. This is supposed to be the one time in the year when the world remembers the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, so why all the strong aversion? I truly enjoy Christmas, but I just want you to be aware that there are some terrible misconceptions surrounding the true meaning of the season. The world, and some in the churc...

When the angel Gabriel came to Mary, he told her to name the child Jesus (Luke 1:31). It is a name we know well. It was the name of one of the greatest heroes in the history of Israel. Joshua is the Hebrew name, and Jesus is the Greek name. They both mean the same thing, ”Jehovah Is Salvation.” This Sunday we will examine that beautiful name. This name demands a decision, all of us must choose to...

Every Christmas season we face the same question: What should I get for my family members? However, when it comes to our selecting gifts for our brothers and sisters in God’s family, the Lord has made the decision process quite easy. In fact, He has eliminated it altogether, for He has provided us with a divinely approved gift list in I Thessalonians 5:12-21. This Sunday, as we examine the gifts i...
