Is God Impressed? PDF Print E-mail

When the disciples commented on the amazing architecture of Herod's Temple, Jesus wasn't so impressed (Mth 24:1-2). In fact, His reply was to inform them that not one stone of that structure would be left standing after God sent His judgment on Jerusalem, a judgment that would come in the siege of General Titus in AD 70.

Segregated Worship Saddens Me PDF Print E-mail

God never intended families to be segregated in worship. In fact, God disapproves of divisions in worship because Christ is not divided. Therefore, there is "neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, male nor female," but all one in Christ. The simple analogy of the church being the "body of Christ" is enough to tell us this. To be a body, it has to be together.

 

Nothing saddens me more than to see a worship service in which the children are rounded up and led away so as not to inconvenience the rest of the congregation. Sure, there's a time for a parent to take out a fussy little one and I'm thankful we have a "cry room" for such occasions (complete with speakers and a TV feed so mom or dad misses nothing). But children belong in worship. Scripture says preaching is powerful. Reading from a story book, playing a game, or hearing a talk in a separate room isn't the same.

 

I want the little ones to hear the name Jesus early and often. I want the hymns to be etched into their little minds. I want them to learn the reverence of God's house. Entire houses came together in worship in the New Testament. We rob our children if we segregate them.

Psalm 1 - The Way of the Righteous Vs. The Way of the Ungodly PDF Print E-mail
Written by David Wise

Psalm 1 contrasts for us two paths of life: the way of the righteous versus the way of the ungodly. This chapter describes the characteristics of both ways, and then concludes with the end for each course of life. The way of the righteous is known by the Lord; the righteous have intimate fellowship and communion with God when following God’s will in God’s way and flourish in fruitfulness. On the other hand, the final end of the way of the ungodly shall ultimately perish.
