ACCOUNTABLE III

ACCOUNTABLE III

Husbands and wives are accountable to each other. The husband is the head of the wife, Christ is head of the Church and God is the head of Christ. (1 Cor 11:3) Most problems we have could be solved if we remembered these basic facts. This natural order of things was established by God for […]

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY (ACCOUNTABLE II)

HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY (ACCOUNTABLE II)

All the while that mom lived I felt accountable to her even after I was married with children and living away. I tried to live and treat my family in such a way that she would be pleased, even proud. My mother was always accountable to my sister and me and of course to dad. […]

ACCOUNTABLE I

ACCOUNTABLE I

We notice a passage in Numbers where a conversation between Miriam and Aaron about their brother Moses and his wife offended God. Miriam disapproved of Moses’ wife apparently and voiced her negative opinion that Moses was not the only one God spoke to and HE held her accountable. Moses served God and any criticism of […]

FRIENDS IV

FRIENDS IV

True friends go the required distance and beyond for each other. Jesus taught that if one bid thee go a mile go with him the second. We are taught to give more than just what is required and good friends do that. Notice how Jesus was accused of being like those whom HE kept company […]

FRIENDS III

FRIENDS II

FRIENDS II

Our Friends know we love them by the way we treat them, and we know who our friends are by the way they treat us. The friend indeed will supply the need that any brother or sister has as the first Christians did. (Act 4:34-35) All of our acquaintances are not necessarily our friends but […]

FRIEND I

FRIEND I

We will, if the Lord wills, discuss friends and friendliness this month and relate some data from the Bible. A friend is attached to another by affection according to Webster and promotes that friendship by saying and doing what leads that person to desire his company. A friend seeks to promote happiness and prosperity for […]

SUNDAY AND EASTER

SUNDAY AND EASTER

Spring and Easter are here and the religious world celebrates this time almost unanimously. The Christians see the world in its religious celebrations on this day and we refrain from such religious activities because there are no New Testament teachings concerning Easter. Christians act in accordance with Bible demands and Easter celebrations, feasts, Easter eggs […]

GENEROSITY IV

GENEROSITY IV

          Many people live seemingly carefree lives, give generously and some even seem wasteful and their resources are not diminished. Others seem careful to conserve, cut corners, are stingy and cold hearted and their resources keep disappearing. (Pro 11:24) They are too concerned for themselves and their own agendas to really grasp the concept of […]

GENEROSITY III

GENEROSITY III

            The Jews were God’s chosen and Jesus was faced with rigid conservatism when HE began to minister in ways perceived as new and contrary to what had been. (Mat 15:21-28) The Jews called themselves children of God and thought of others as less than, even as dogs. Jesus was approached by one who could […]
