I’ll Be Like You!

His little arms crept round my neck, And then I heard him say Four simple words I can't forget, Four words that made me pay.   They turned a mirror on my soul On secrets no one knew; They startled me; I hear them yet: Said he, "I'll be like You!" --- Author Unknown

Sanctifying Against Tomorrow

Sanctifying Against Tomorrow There are five things that could happen to a preacher tomorrow and for them he needs to sanctify himself today. Tomorrow could bring death. John Wesley was always ready to die. He said everything was in order, not even a pair of gloves out of place! Tomorrow the minister may be laid aside and unable to preach. It may be due to circumstances beyond his control—to illness or accident. It may be that a moral or spiritual breakdown makes him a castaway, read more...

Self improvement

Self improvement Ephesians 5:16-17 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Redeeming- is to buy up, to rescue from loss(improve opportunity) One thing is certain we can all look back and see where we have lost time. So how do we redeem time? I believe the way to buy it up is to learn from our yesterdays. Failures in the past ought to be a stepping stone for today. We ought to cease on every chance to make read more...

What A Service This Morning!

We had an Amazing Service this morning if you missed it!  Once again the Lord passed our way and blessed us with His presence.  The morning devotion turned into a full Sunday School hour as Pastor Bowen called several men from the floor to share what the Lord had laid on their hearts.  It's amazing how the Lord knit those three messages to the regular worship hour message from the Pastor.  Another reason we call this "An Amazing Grace Place". Come join us next week!

Salvation comes by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ

Salvation comes not by "accepting the finished work" or "deciding for Christ." It comes by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, the whole, living, victorious Lord who, as God and man, fought our fight and won it, accepted our debt as His own and paid it, took our sins and died under them and rose again to set us free. This is the true Christ, and nothing less will do. But something less is among us, nevertheless, and we do well to identify it so that we may repudiate it. That something is a read more...

MAJORING ON THE MINOR

MAJORING ON THE MINOR These ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23:23 Jesus was not preaching mainly on tithing here. Some have emphasized the negative side of this admonition until it has been overlooked that our Lord is pleading for “the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith.” When Christians “major on the major,” put first things first, and give proper attention to their faith in and fellowship with Christ, they will not leave lesser read more...

Persistence of Jesus

Persistence of Jesus. John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. This that took place was not to drive a wedge between Peter and the Lord. The care of the Master repeating His question was to get Peter to realize what was on the inside of him. Where is our read more...
