“Pray without ceasing.” That is what Paul had written in 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Not only did he write it, he lived it, and we see that come out throughout his letters. There are many times that Paul records specific things for which he is praying. In Eph. 3:14-21, we notice three specific things that Paul prayed for. Join us as we study God’s Word Together.
10/8/17 a.m. sermon
In response to a recent tragedy, a number of people starting proclaiming that “thoughts and prayers” were not enough. Sometimes, it is true that even though we ought to pray in all situations, there is additional action that we can take to help those in need. Other times, the only option we have is to pray. In this lesson, we look at examples of both together.
10/1/17 a.m. sermon
Though the story of Daniel 3 is familiar to many members of the Lord’s church, it might be a good idea to take another look at the chapter, and learn a lesson about dedication to God, and not bowing down to the idols of the nation in which we live.
9/24/17 a.m. sermon
It’s clear that many in our world have an issue with authority. The Bible teaches that if one has a problem with authority, he has a problem with God, because God has instituted authority in all areas of our lives (in church, in society, and in the home). One who claims to be a Christian must be subject to authority, or his religion is not from the Bible, it is self-made religion.
9/10/17 p.m. sermon
The apostle Paul was always ready to let the brethren to whom he wrote know that he was praying for them. The letter to the Ephesians is no different as he tells them, “I never cease giving thanks for you and I am regularly remembering you in prayer.” In particular, Paul prays for them to grow in the knowledge of God, in three specific ways that we will consider in this lesson. He wanted them to grow in knowledge concerning their hope, concerning their inheritance, and concerning God’s power.
My Sermon from Sunday morning, 12/20/15
We have been surrounded for so long by unsavory language, especially that which dishonors and disrespects the name of God (Ex. 20:7), that we have in many cases ceased to notice it. This is extremely dangerous for the church, and we must keep a close watch on what we say, especially when it comes to the name of God. Sermon from the morning of 12/20/15 at the Orangeburg Church of Christ
In this weeks video devotional we take a very personal look at a passage from the Psalms. We are going to focus on Psalm 139:23-24. Open a Bible with me and let’s study this great passage of Scripture.
