• So great a salvation

    By Paul Richey

    In John 3, the Bible speaks of a religious leader named Nicodemus coming to Jesus by the cover of night to investigate salvation. Through this dialogue, Jesus declares that one must be born again to receive life everlasting. Nicodemus was confused by this statement and asked for clarification and eventually walked away in the moment to ponder what Jesus had taught.

  • Troubles will come

    Everyone has troubles.  The old expression says, “It rains on the just and the unjust.”  So the question is, “How do we handle troubles when they come to us?”  One young man is jilted by his girl friend and he tries to commit suicide; while another man faces the same problem, but writes a song about it and makes a million dollars.  Trouble came to both, but the difference was how they chose to handle the problem.

  • Our spiritual positions

    “We have been taken out of the great graveyard of sin and placed in the throne room of glory.”  Warren Weirsbe in his Bible commentary on Ephesians says this is “our spiritual position in Christ.”

    When we responded by faith to what Jesus did for us on the cross as He died for our sins, Christ became our Savior, our sins were forgiven and we became a child of God.  Spiritually, Paul explains what happened to us in Ephesians 2:1-10. He shows us how sin worked against us, God worked for us and in us and desired to work thru us.

  • Overcoming consumer Christianity

    By Paul Richey

    The Western Church has fallen prey to the mindset of consumerism. We attempt and expect perfection. Each individual approaches ministry with the ideology that the customer is always correct and that if we feel disappointed then we have the right to demand change or choose another location to “attend” church. Consumer Christianity is robbing individuals of the joy of the Lord in their lives and leaving them searching for something to fill the void that only God can ultimately fill.

  • Mission trip to Camp Crossway
  • The answer for our problems

       We live in a sick world where many are trying to doctor the illness, but they are only treating the symptoms, not the disease.  Someone said: “If the experts were laid in a row end to end, they would never reach a conclusion.”
