The Kind of Preaching We Need

The Kind of Preaching We Need In these wild and weird and wicked times, the work of the preacher is being rethought and revamped and reexamined. Some think the preacher is just to be an equipper of the laymen for their ministry. He's been pushed from the center of the platform to the wings in favor of celebrated experts and entertainers. But the Book still says, "How shall they hear without a preacher?" (Rom. 10:14). What kind of preaching do we need today? We need the same kind we've always read more...

WE KNOW NOT… BUT THE SPIRIT…

WE KNOW NOT…BUT THE SPIRIT Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities. Romans 8:26 “I can’t think or pray or feel as I ought. What shall I do?” You never will be able to do or be perfectly as you wish you might while you are in the flesh. You are a child of Adam, and the best falls far short.

This women had an issue just as we all do from time to time. Issues are what we think about and what we talk about that seems to be a weight upon us. 12 years was long enough! This day she was going to take it to the Lord. If we aren't careful read more...

GOD’S COMPENSATIONS

GOD’S COMPENSATIONS The Lord is able to give thee much more than this. II Chronicles 25:9 Amaziah had hired an army of Israel to fight Edom, when he should have relied upon God. When a prophet advised against it Amaziah was concerned about the money he had paid out for such assistance. The prophet answered with our text. In other words, God is able to make up any loss we sustain when we give up anything for Him. We are prone to seek help from the world when confronted with a crisis. To read more...
