Bible Text: Proverbs |


A study in the book of Proverbs Opening thoughts: Proverbs are short sentences drawn from long experience. A proverb is a truth that is couched in a form that is easy to remember, a philosophy based on experience, and a rule for conduct. A proverb has been called a sententious sentence, a maxim, an old saying, an old saw, a bromide, an epigram. If we look up “diligence” in a dictionary or thesaurus, how do we find it defined? Persevering application,assiduousness(attention to detail),industrious,persistence, vigor care. Diligence is an attitude that drives us to accomplish a mission successfully. Why be diligent?

Bible Text: 2 Samuel 12 |


“You will say that these are very small sins and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able to report spectacular wickedness. But do remember, the only thing that matters is the extent to which you separate the man from the enemy (God). It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to keep the man away from the Light… Murder is no better than cards if cards can do the trick. Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without turnings, without milestones,

Bible Text: Hebrews 4 |


Hebrews 3-4 It is possible for a person to be saved and destined for heaven and yet lead a miserable, defeated life here below. I believe that this exact description is why Hebrews 3-4 is written for us today. The Bible is clear that there are two distinct possibilities of Christian experience: defeat or victory. Consider a couple of passages that relate this in the Pauline epistles: Romans 8:5-8 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 The book of Hebrews addresses that there is a maturity that should be attained in the believer’s life and this must be pursued.

This is lesson one of the NAVIGATING HOME & FAMILY series. Tonight we will be starting a series, a foundation of looking at the idea of the institution of the home. And I think that most of us would say that God did that, but we are going to kind of look at what that means. I think that easily we can expand on next year, as far as the institution of the home. To say that the family is in disrepair and in a state of deterioration in America is an understatement. The biblical home has been on

What the Bible says about Fear 5-year old Johnny was in the kitchen as his mother was preparing supper. She asked him to go into the pantry and get her a can of tomato soup, but he didn’t want to go in alone. "It’s dark in there and I’m scared." She asked again, and he persisted. Finally she said, "It’s OK--Jesus will be in there with you." Johnny walked hesitantly to the door and barely opened it very slowly.
