If I were to say to you, come and be fed, and you would be filled, what would have to happen in order for you to be filled? So why do so many balk when Jesus says, “he who believes and is baptized will be saved?” Baptism is essential to salvation, and the New Testament concept is foreshadowed going back as far as Noah in the Ark.

My sermon from Sunday morning, 12/6/15, at the Orangeburg Church of Christ. I hope you will be uplifted and encouraged as together we study about by observing not only the things that Jesus taught about prayer, but also the things that he did in his life.
My sermon from this past Sunday evening (9/20/15) taken from Ezra 9-10, where Ezra prays becaue of the sin of the returned exiles. As we read the account, we must be reminded that we too should pray for our nation, even though sin is rampant. In Chapter 10 of the text, we see the positive result of Ezra’s prayer.
My sermon from this past Sunday morning (9/20/15). This sermon was a follow-up to the previous week’s lesson, “Quit You Like Men.” In this lesson, we examine the characteristics of several women in Scripture, and learn how to apply those examples to all of our lives.
Today we continue studying the Sermon on the Mount with a look at the closing section of Matthew 6, verses 25 through the end of the chapter. In this passage Jesus us shows us how we have no need to worry about the cares of this world, but instead we should put our faith in God, and trust Him to take care of us. Grab a Bible, open it to Matthew 6, and study the Word of God with me today.
In case you were wondering, that title has nothing to do with pizza, but we can imagine that if God did deliver pizza it would pretty good. I digress. Today we are looking at a passage of Scripture that tells us how God delivers his children, and what must be done in order to obtain that deliverance. Grab a Bible and turn to 1 Samuel 7, and join me in this time of study today.
