One way we learn how to share the truth with others is to observe the methods employed by first century messengers. Today, we study Paul’s approach to an unbelieving audience in ancient Athens, some of whom became believers.
We are often deceived by things that are not true because it is what we want to hear and it looks so good (right) or we have reasoned within ourselves that the lie is the truth. Devastating effects occur when there is no truth.
Truth, our theme for the month of March, is the most powerful force in the world. From what does Jesus promise to free us if we believe and obey the truth?
When reading our Bibles, sometimes we get so stuck on an event’s details that we overlook its message. After looking at one of the more “stranger” events in Jesus’ life, we’ll consider things that Jesus wants us to see concerning our discipleship.
We are often accused of “not liking music in our worship.” That is not true but we need to take a look at why we do not use an instrument of music in worship.
It takes hard work to worship fully and sincerely but if we could think of worshipping at the foot of the cross, it would change our lives.
We are blessed by our weekly opportunities for worship far more than we realize. While worship is intended to honor and glorify Him, God has so designed worship for our benefit as well.
