We have all probably seen the effects of positive support and an encouraging word when we face tough times and heartache. Imagine, though, the power of good news and encouragement when it comes from our God and Savior. Our Teacher, Jesus Christ, is good news.The Heart of God's People

God truly desires we draw ourselves closer to Him, and He knows our thoughts and our heart. We must keep our mind kindled on those fruits of the Spirit so our heart is committed to those beliefs. Our heart must be molded to that doctrine so our soul and deepest being is captured with the Spirit of our Lord and Savior.Have You Considered Job?

As God proclaimed, there was no one like Job. I know some describe Job through his display of patience, but God said he was blameless, upright, feared God, and shunned evil. This describes a man who had strong faith and pursued a life of righteousness.I Will Praise Him

While a valuable exercise by attending church upon the first day of the week, we can encourage and uplift one another as we come together, unified in our worship of the one God, Lord and Savior. But does your life exemplify the praise and commitment due to the One who paid the debt of your sin? Do your actions each week glorify the One who supplies us with all we have? We must praise Him!Why Are You Afraid?

Usually, this is a question that arises out of the unknown when apparent danger exists and we are uncertain of our survival. Should that same fear exist in question of our eternal survival? When our eternity is placed in the hands of a Savior who has paid the price for our sin, then our faith and obedience must be placed where the light of life shines.Light the Fire in My Heart Again

When our love grows weak and we have floundered in our purpose for God, we have a need to relight the fire of our passion for His Will, and the encouragement to give our life for Him top priority.Turn to Him the Other also...

A difficult concept for us to actually swallow our pride and avoid revenge. But the instruction is to instead, return a blessing, feed your enemy, love your enemy, and never stop forgiving. There is the easy answer to return the evil that is dealt to you. But the loving answer is to return good for evil.Elders' Qualifications

The next in our series of examining the needs of leadership in the church and what qualities those men must hold. There are signs of character and reputation that a leader must be known for by how he manages his family, how he is seen in the community and on the job, as well as how he is seen within the church family. This leadership in one of example and experience, and it must show.Elders: Must Be and Must Do

In our continuing series of learning about the leadership of the church and the qualifications of Elders, we will look at the Greek words used in describing the work and activities of the church Elder. A notable characteristic of these terms is the associated action required of the job. Although the terms are nouns, they are easily associated as actions by simply adding an -ing at the end, denoting the action required of the duty and work.Adding Church Leaders: Where Do We Start?

As we begin to look in the congregation for men who will desire to accept leadership of our flock, we must look among our numbers for those qualified as scripture lists, and to be fulfilled in the grace of God through prayer, knowledge, and understanding, within the wisdom as put forth from God.
