God’s Market Place

We have all purchased something or at least known about, a market place where fruits and vegetables are placed in bins, such as lettuce, tomatoes, grapes, cabbages, apples and such things that we need for a healthy body. At God’s market place there are also many things available which are necessary for a good and healthy spiritual life; and they are found in the church, the kingdom of God’s dear son; Jesus Christ.

The Place Called Calvary

When Christ was born at Bethlehem, the night turned into day: but when he was crucified at Calvary, the day turned to darkest night. In the Old Testament days the sheep died for the shepherd: but in the New Testament days, the Good Shepherd died for the sheep. God loved Abraham so much that he…

Goodbye, Death Valley

A wagon train reached the top of a mountain pass, and was prepared to descend into the valley below. One man of the party turned for one last look at the valley they had just left, and waving his hand with a gesture of great relief, cried, “Goodbye Death Valley.” This wagon train was composed…

Worship

There are two words in the book of Revelation that echo a solemn warning, give forth a plaintive plea, and point humanity in the right direction.

The Humanity of Christ

“And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth”—John 1:14. Perhaps to many the incarnation of Christ, is the greatest mystery of the entire Bible, the one fact hardest to understand, and yet the…

The Bible

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrine is holy, its precepts binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be…

The Love of the Truth

The very first sin committed on earth was a result of believing the devil’s lie in preference to accepting God’s truth. God had told Adam and Eve that eating of the forbidden fruit would bring death, but the serpent contradicted God, and with his smooth, deceptive words beguiled the woman, and she fell into his…

The Power of the Gospel

Without a doubt, those who read this article will acknowledge that the Gospel of Christ has great power–power to bring salvation. Paul said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation”—Romans 1:16. However, of the many who realize that power to save, but few will…
