Are You Saved?
Written by Ben Winslett

I attempted to speak tonight at Union PBC near Woodville that there are two types of salvation, or deliverance, found in the Bible. One is the unconditional, eternal, everlasting salvation wrought by Christ on the Cross. The other is conditional, occurring in time, and is based upon our obeying Christ.

However (here is my point), while we know this and believe it to be true, merely understanding temporal salvation on a cognitive level is not the point. Actually saving yourself from the "untoward generation" is the point. There are two roads in this world - one broad and destructive and one narrow which leads to life.

Points to consider about the strait gate:

1. Devote yourself to Christ. Proverbs 3:5 (This is of chief importance, without Christ even Bible based religion is vain - see the Pharisees.)

2. Devote yourself to His Word. Psalms 119:9-12

3. Devote yourself to His Church/Kingdom. Matthew 6:33

 

 
Family Integrated Worship - God Ordained and Safe

Today I received the monthly Newsletter from Family Talk, the radio ministry of Dr. James Dobson. I receive this newsletter and have made good use of Dr. Dobson's books in the past. He has a very Biblical view of parenting, especially concerning discipline, which I appreciate.

 

This month's newsletter reflected on the tragic allegations of child abuse against former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky and urged parents to keep a watchful eye on their children. Dobson shared that the danger was not just in sports, but anywhere that adults are alone with children, including church.

The Olivet Discourse
Written by Michael Gowens

Excerpt from 'A Study of the Life of Jesus from The Gospel of Luke' by Michael L. Gowens

Chapter 41

Lu 21, together with Mt 24 and Mr 13, records our Lord's prophetic sermon to His disciples on the Mount of Olives. The variations in the three accounts of the Olivet Discourse are complementary not contradictory. Each records different parts of the same sermon and a comparison of the three reveals a comprehensive picture of Jesus' message. Luke's account is arguably the most conducive to a Gentile audience.

It is important to distinguish between what old preachers called "the two functions of the Holy Spirit."

1 John 5:4-5 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Bible Study or Entertainment

This era of technology has give many advances in multiple areas. We are certainly blessed too have such an abundance of resources and commodities. Whereas this is certainly a blessing, I fear that often it takes our minds away from growing in grace to being entertained. Many times when in fellowship with brothers and sisters I have observed that my conversation has often been on secular things.

To YOU is the Word of Salvation Sent
Written by Ben Winslett

To whom was the word of salvation sent? "Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent." - Acts 13:26

Notice what happened on the following Sabbath from the same chapter: "And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed."

This shows that salvation is necessary BEFORE one can receive the preached gospel. God must first give life. This evident by the fact that these people were:

1) Already God-fearing people, which unregenerate men are NOT. - Romans 3:18

2) Ordained to eternal life. They were elected, or chosen, by God from before the foundation of the world.

Now, how did Luke, the writer of Acts, know that these men were ordained to eternal life? Was a giant "E" stamped on their foreheads?? No, he knew because they received the word with gladness! While the gospel does not bring eternal life, it does bring life and immortality TO LIGHT. - 2 Timothy 1:10
