“Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled…” By Mike Riley

by admin

Have you ever been troubled in your heart? Have you ever experienced a physical illness or the illness of a loved one? The problems of life and daily living can many times overwhelm us to the point of being disappointed, discouraged and even despondent. There is no human being living on the earth who can […]

Doing What We Can Do

by admin

One’s commitment to Jesus (made in the good confession, Matt. 10:32), should become a ‘spring board’ for dedication of faithfulness to Him, as this new life style is being lived to the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31; 2 Cor. 5:17). Being a true disciple of Jesus involves one’s energy being utilized in His service. […]

A Yardstick For Giving

by admin

“HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE”? That’s an impossible question to answer since the New Testament refuses to name a minimum. Why not give us an amount? It is probably because God knew about people. People give to the ceiling, not off the floor. If God said to give 10%, that would cap many people’s giving […]

AN APPEAL FOR UNITY

by admin

The night of Jesus betrayal was spent primarily with His disciples, according to the apostle John, (chapters 13-16). In chapter seventeen, John records Jesus prayer to the Father in view of the following day’s events. In verses twenty and twenty one, Jesus prays, Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall […]

WHAT TYPE OF DISCIPLE DO YOU WANT TO BE?

What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? For The Twelve it meant three years of close companionship and lessons learned at the Master’s knee. Yet, for all that time and effort what did they do when Jesus was arrested? They ran and abandoned him. Those who had been given the most […]

SIGN SEEKING AND FAITH

Life must have seemed hard to Gideon, as he labored in fear of the Midianites who swooped in to take everything the Israelites had worked for, their food, animals, etc. Evidently the enemy had taken their grape vines as well. Times were so bad, Israel left their homes, and went to live in dens and […]

Life and Death and Life

by admin

Life is a precious gift from God. James wrote: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17). All who read this are obviously alive. I suppose the majority of folks living now take it […]

Happy New Year!

by admin

IS IT POSSIBLE? It hardly seems possible that 2013 has now passed, and we are in January, 2014. I was told years ago, as one gets older time will go by much faster. Now I understand. Of course time is the same for everyone, but it seems to go by more rapidly as one grows […]

I AM THE NEW YEAR

by admin

I am an unspoiled page in your book of time. I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the past twelve months. All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it out […]

THE SIN OF UNBELIEF

by admin

Unbelief is often associated with atheism. Yet, there is another definition found in the book of Hebrews that says, so we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief (Hebrews 3:19). This reference is to Israel of old being led by Moses following their exodus out of Egypt. He led them through the […]
