• Possible or Impossible?
    Can an accountable person who so desires become just a Christian? And can a group of such people constitute a congregation (such as those we read about in the New Testament) that is non-denominational and that belongs to Christ? The religious world in general says that it is impossible; we say that it is possible. Christians in the first century were neither Catholics nor Protestants. All of the Lord’s churches were non-denominational and neither Catholic nor Protestant. Our plea is for people to lay aside human names and designations, human creeds and doctrines, human organizations and systems, and become only…
  • Blessings & Reverses

    Every person has many blessings and at least a few misfortunes. The ones he reflects upon will either strengthen or weaken him.

    Our most necessary blessings are apt to be uncounted, because they are the most common: sunshine, rain, oxygen, soil, plants, animals, and a thousand other workings of nature.

    The universality of so many blessings, however, does not lower their value. If this commonness tempts us to be ungrateful, let us ask: Where would we stand if the earth caved in? What would we breathe if the oxygen ran out? What would we do if the water dried up?

  • Preach the Word!

    In 2 Timothy, Paul wrote to encourage the young evangelist, Timothy, in the midst of perilous times. Paul himself was in prison. Many had distanced themselves from Paul because of his imprisonment. Paul warned that “perilous times will come” in which false teachers would arise and lead many astray. In the midst of these warnings, Paul admonished Timothy to “continue in those things you have learned and been assured of,” particularly in the holy scriptures, which are able to “make you wise to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.”

    In chapter 4, Paul charged Timothy: Preach the Word! Be…

    (By Samuel Matthews)

    The King James Version of God's Holy Word, the Bible, says, "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18).

    Loved ones, the answer to our subject question is a resounding NO! The "churches of Christ" that you read about in the New Testament (Romans 16:16) are NOT a denomination. Neither are we inter-denominational. In truth, we…

  • 'Jesus Wept'

    “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). It’s the shortest verse in Bible, but those two words say a lot. In their context, they answer a very important ques­tion: How does God feel about my personal grief? Is He cold and disinterested toward my pain, or is He genuinely concerned? We don’t have to wonder.

    Jesus’ dear friend Lazarus had died of an illness. When Jesus arrived four days later, Lazarus’ body was in the tomb, and his family was still in mourning. And even though He knew that He would raise Lazarus from the…

  • Peace Be Still

    What was your day like today? How has your week been? Did you pass the familiar faces, “Hi, yes I’m fine, thanks.” In some aspect, I think everyone is traveling this life on the open sea. As the storms in my life rise and diminish, I am all too often sharing a façade, that I think others want to see. “I’m fine, you’re fine, we are all fine.” Sometimes I lean into the courteous response, because I myself am just working out my level of “fine-ness.” If you are like me, there are times when it seems like…

  • Be an Onesiphorus

    Ten days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, residents of North Platte, Nebraska heard a rumor that soldiers from their town, part of the Nebraska National Guard Company D, would be coming through on a troop train on their way to the West Coast. About five hundred people showed up at the train depot with food, gifts, letters, and love to give the boys. When the train showed up, it was not the Nebraska National Guard Company D boys on board; it was the soldiers from the Kansas National Guard Company D. The North Platte residents decided to…

  • Obey The Gospel NOW!

    Obey The Gospel Now!
    (Allen Ashlock)
    1. Before you die! You could die at any time. Be prepared. Be a faithful and dedicated child of God. The Bible declares, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" (Hebrews 9:27). There is a horrible price to pay for the person who dies outside of Christ.
    2. Before you can't! A person can live in sin and then suffer in a terrible accident or suffer from a stroke or other disease and be rendered unable to…
