Preparing For Your Calling–God’s Blessings

This is the fifth post in the series

Preparing For Your Calling — God’s Blessings

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

—2 Timothy 2:20

This is the fifth message in my series on preparing for your calling. Follow this link to read previous posts in this series Continue reading

Elephant In The Room

Posted October 10th, 2012 by John Ed Mathison

Elephants have always fascinated me.

I recently saw a cartoon which showed a pastor and a deacon standing in front of the congregation. You see a lot of people, but there is a big Continue reading

Reflecting His Wisdom

“For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18.

When Paul wrote his two letters to the Corinthians, they were blending into the sinful, pagan culture around them. They were so corrupt, in fact, the word “corinthian” became a term outsiders used to describe folks that were Continue reading

How Big Is Your But?

Some buts we hardly notice. Some are the size of an 800-pound gorilla in the room. Others remain the same size no matter what we do.  Some buts change Continue reading

Santa Claus And Satan

At Christmas we sing a song with our small children about Santa Claus coming down the chimney with presents on Christmas Eve. The song warns the  kids to watch out, don’t cry and don’t pout. Later in the song we tell these naive little peeps that Santa knows all about them, when they’re asleep, when they’re awake and when they’ve been good or bad.

When we grow up Satan tells us the same thing, doesn’t he?  Especially Continue reading

What Do You Believe?

Preface to the “Who Are You?” BLOG SERIES.

During our “Who Are You” series we’ll challenge you to consider this question a lot: What do you believe?
Will you believe what you think about yourself and God? Or will you believe what God says about Himself and about you?

For instance, one of the verses Continue reading

There’s no such thing as a “good” Christian.

I overheard a lady on a commuter van talk about one of her friends who was helping a needy family from her church. The Lady claimed, “She was just trying to be a good Christian.”

Many well-intentioned Christians spend lots of time, energy and resources trying to be good Christians.

The truth of the matter is, however that good Christians just don’t exist. The Bible doesn’t teach that at all.  Believing that Christians are somehow good is a lie straight from satan. Evil people with no conscience can do good things and help little old ladies across the street and buy Girl Scout Cookies, give money to the poor and donate to charities.  Doing good things for others doesn’t make anyone a good Christian.
