Thought for the Week

We are excited by the fact the Word of the Lord was being accepted more and more. This was in part because the people were sharing their faith and the things God was doing for them, and in part...

 

Thought for the Week

For about three months Paul was able to preach and teach about Jesus as Christ in the synagogue of Ephesus. The NIV Translation says then some of them became obstinate. A mental picture came into my...

 

Thought for the Week

If you were to watch the assembly of a present-day church, you would likely see babies being carried in and perhaps old people coming in with walkers, canes and wheel chairs. As it should be, the...

 

Thought for the Week

The score was tied. It was the bottom of the ninth inning. One man was on base. A good hitter was at the plate. Suddenly, there was a power outage. The TV went dark. The radio was dead. The game had...

Thought for the Week

This next small section in the Book of Acts will hopefully be interesting to you as it is to me. As we look at it, hopefully we will be able to decide what is God's will in the whole thing. When we...

Thought for the Week
