Brother Nathan Meeks: Nov 29, 2015

On November 29, 2015, in Uncategorized, by admin

Brother Meeks studies the 42nd Psalm for his message on, “Dealing With Discouragement”.  Even God’s children will all face discouragement at sometime in their lifetime. Brother Nathan looks at ways with which David dealt with it–tools which we, also, should keep on our own “toolbelt”.  Ultimately, we should pace ourselves, focusing on one day at a time. Be of good cheer and just keep going.  Jesus said, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.”  (Matthew 6:34)

Brother Nathan Meeks: Nov 22, 2015

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, Brother Meeks asks that we remember the marvelous works of The Lord.  He studies, “A Faith Worthy of Thanksgiving,” and begins in Colossians 2: 6+7.  We should exercise daily that measure of faith with which we have been blessed.  We are called in, “One lord, one faith, one baptism,”  (Ephesians 4:5).  We should be “rooted and built up” in “the” one true faith.

Brother Nathan Meeks: Nov 15, 2015

Brother Meeks begins in Luke 12:32, and he then compares two scriptural accounts of “Biblical growth and prosperity.”  After  Nehemiah oversaw the rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem,  they experienced a great in-gathering (Nehemiah, Chapter 12).  After Pentecost, the New Testament church also experienced such an in-gathering, “…And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” (Acts 2:47)  Brother Nathan studies six main similarities in these accounts: centering around God, unity in doctrine, unity in mind, active dedication, active fellowship, and each was concerned with their own tasks at hand.  We should all continue to strive to live in line with the will of God, but keep in mind that we are all imperfect people, perfectly trying to serve The Lord.

Elder Cothren brings another message this afternoon, Be ye doers of the word.  He begins in James with James 1:22, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving our own selves.”  The later part of the second book of James also deals with this subject, and ends with, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26)  Paul wrote, “… and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” (I Cor 13:2)  There is a difference between saying you have faith and actually demonstrating it.

Elder David Cothren: Morning, Nov 1, 2015

On November 1, 2015, in Uncategorized, by admin
** Please note that this message was posted in two sections due to technical issues.**

Elder Cothren begins in the first book of Acts as he teaches The Importance of Baptism.   On the day of Pentecost, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 2:38)  It is noteworthy that in I Peter 3:20 is it recorded, “…eight souls were saved by water.” (Not from water, but by water; in other words, baptism.)  Baptism is so important that Peter “commanded” them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. (Acts 10:48).  In Acts 19: 1-7, is the Biblical example of the need for some to be Rebaptized.
