Elder Philip Conley: Afternoon, Feb 14, 2016

On February 14, 2016, in Uncategorized, by admin

Elder Conley begins his afternoon message in I Thes 5:17, “Pray without ceasing.”  In our own lives, we should strive to emulate Christ.  The question should not be, “What would Jesus do?”, but rather, “What did Jesus do?”, so that we might follow His example.  To live as Christ should be our focus and goal, and our lives should bring glory to Him. Paul wrote, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”  Phil 1:21

Elder Philip Conley: morning, Feb 14, 2016

On February 14, 2016, in Uncategorized, by admin

Elder Conley studies the Biblical account of Jesus walking on the water.  There are 3 Gospel records of this:  Matt 14: 22-33, Mark 6:45-52, and John 6: 15-21.  Brother Philip reviews the obvious 4 miracles recorded in these accounts, but notes that Mark  refers to yet another miracle.  After the feeding of the 5000, twelve baskets of fragments were gathered by the disciples (Matt 14:20). Jesus constrained His disciples straightway onto the ship (Matt 14:22).  Each must have still been carrying a basket of fragments–a reminder of that marvelous miracle.  Yet each was “sore amazed”, “beyond measure” and considered not the miracle of the loaves– for their heart was hardened. (Mark 6: 51 & 52)  Let us all keep in remembrance all that Jesus Christ has done for us.
