Declare his glory among the heathen;
his marvellous
works among all nations.
(1 Chronicles 16:24

Talk Is Cheap

You have probably heard the saying, “It is much easier said than done.”  While this may be a true statement, it should not characterize Bible believing Christians.  The fifth book of the New Testament is called “Acts of the Apostles” (“Acts” for short) and while it does contain things spoken by the apostles, it focuses on work accomplished by the apostles with the Lord’s help.  So many times we are quick to make a verbal commitment to do something for the Lord, but the follow through is lacking.  Listed below are some Scriptures containing valuable truths about living for the Lord rather than just talking about living for the Lord.

In all labour there is profit:
but the talk of the lips
tendeth only to penury.
(Proverbs 14:23)

But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.
(James 1:22)

My little children,
let us not love in word,
neither in tongue;
but in deed and in truth.
(1 John 3:18)

It is time for saved folks to “Walk the walk” rather than just “Talk the talk.”

Access NOT Denied!

Recently there have been a number of companies that have experienced problems with their websites and/or internal servers.  On Thursday of last week, Delta Airlines, Home Depot, FedEx, and many other companies experienced problems with their internet going completely offline or running extremely slow.  It is amazing how so much of our world is completely reliant on the internet for the simplest of tasks.  If you are saved, isn’t it great to know that you don’t EVER have to worry about the Lord denying you access to Him!  Even if the internet is out, access to God the Father is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Take advantage of the fact that the Lord never goes offline!

Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
(Romans 5:1, 2)

Lord’s Supper

We will observe the Lord’s Supper at the conclusion of the evening service.  This is an important event for our church body as we look back to what the Lord did on the cross on our behalf and we also look forward to His return.

For as often as ye eat this bread,
and drink this cup,
ye do shew the Lord’s death
till he come.
(1 Corinthians 11:26)

Echoes From Glory

“The world never burned a casual Christian at the stake.”

“When boiled down to its essence, unforgiveness is hatred.”

“Any pleasure that would keep you from Christ is a sinful pleasure that will doubtless cause you anguish, heartache, tears and remorse.”
                                                          -John R. Rice (1895-1980); evangelist, pastor, and founding editor of The Sword of the Lord
