I Want You to Know Him – Eph. 1:15-23 (sermon audio)

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.

What Kind of “Salty” Language Are You Using? – Col. 4:2-6

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


Here I Am To Worship (podcast)


Jesus said in John 4:24 that “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in Spirit and in Truth.”  Worship is more than something we just go to once a week on Sunday.  It is more than a set of actions that we just go through ritualistically. Worship is truly a blessing for the Christian.  It is about giving praise and honor to God, and that in and of itself is a blessing that we receive from it, among many others.  Unfortunately there are many who don’t really understand worship.  In this podcast I endeavor to take a Biblical look at worship.  There are three things that must be present in worship, people, practice, and purpose.

I Know What Love Is (podcast)


Forrest Gump said, “I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is. A blessing that Christians have is that we too know what love is. Love is vital to the life of a Christian, and in this lesson we endeavor to study Biblical Love and understand how we can live a Godly life that includes Godly love.

We Must Obey God Rather Than Men

There are many places in this world were Christians are being punished simply because they are Christians. There are even some places where being a Christian is illegal. Many feel that persecution of Christians in the United States is on the rise, and that it’s only a matter of time before Christian’s are openly oppressed by the government as was seen in the early days of the Church. I don’t know if it will come to that, but what if it did? How should Christians react to laws made by men that contradict what the Law of God teaches us?

Godly Living 101:Bible Study (podcast)

[audio https://archive.org/details/GodlLiving101BibleStudy]

In studying Godly Living, there are several things that are essential to living a Godly life. I would say that they are the basics to being a Christians, so I’ve titled this series, Godly Living 101. This study is about Bible Study. Christians must be people who study the Word of God daily, and we also have to put it into practice daily. The Scripture for this lesson is drawn from Psalm Chapter 1.
