An Imperfect Church

How many of you would agree that the church is not a perfect place? How many of you would agree that the Christian life is not made up of perfect people? The Christian life is made up of imperfect people following after a perfect God. We all have our short comings and we all make mistakes. Sometimes our mistakes are small ones and sometimes our mistakes are big ones. How many of you have ever worked any type of construction? Yeh, some of you have. When I first met my wife I was working as a drywall hanger and metal framer. Basically, I use to build walls. One day I was working on a construction site all by myself. My boss had given me specific instructions and specific measurements

Death

According to The World Health Organization they say that, “One person commits suicide about every 40 seconds, one person is murdered every 60 seconds and one person dies in armed conflict every 100 seconds.” One out of every person in America will die one day. It’s a one in one chance that you and Iwill die someday. What would drive a young man to kill his own family member, or his little brother? Just recently I read about a 12-year-old boy who savagely killed his six-month-old baby brother by stabbing him 17 times and then cutting off his left hand as he lay in his bed. Police found out about this by the boy himself because after he did it he went straight to the police station with t

A Saved Sinner

The conversion of a person to Christ is one of the most miraculous things that takes place in the life of a person. God takes a sinner and makes him saved.

That which was once in bondage finds freedom in Christ. Jeffrey Dahmer was a convicted murderer and cannibal who cooked and ate his victims. You don’t really get much more heinous than that. He was awarded 16 life sentences. While in prison, Dahmer met with Roy Ratcliff, a minister with the Church of Christ in Madison, Wisconsin, and turned his life over to Jesus Christ.

Making a Choice

A man by the name of Dr. Crane shared a story about a woman who came into his office who wanted to get rid of her husband. She said, "I not only want to get rid of him, but I want to get even with him. Before I divorce him, I want to hurt him as much as he has hurt me." Dr. Crane suggested an ingenious plan, he said, "Go home and act as if you really love your husband. Tell him how much he means to you. Praise him for every decent trait. Go out of your way to be as kind, considerate, and generous as possible. Spare no efforts to please him, and enjoy him. Make him believe you love him. And after you've convinced him of your undying love and that you cannot live without him, then drop

True Love

The great evangelist Billy Graham once said that, “God proved his love on the cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, “I love you.” Today the word love does not carry with it the same meaning as it does in the Greek language. In fact, there are multiple words that describe love in this Grecian language. There is Phileo which speaks of a brotherly or sisterly love, then there is Eros which speaks of love on the physical level specifically between a husband and wife in a marital relationship, and then we have the word Agapao or Agape which speaks of a sacrificial love. This is the kind of love that was shown for us on the cross. For God so loved the wo
