The Same Gift
This morning’s lesson will be over our spiritual gifts. To help us apply what we will learn and to prepare us for the week, I would like to share with you what I believe is the most important aspect of the gifts that we have Christians. That is the nature by which we come to use our gifts. Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninforme... read all »
Thirsty Campaign
As you may know, the Choctaw Church of Christ has been studying and learning about evangelism this quarter. Part of learning is putting into practice the things that one has learned. After almost 2 months of being taught by our Shepherds about evangelism, another opportunity to put into practice, the sharing of Jesus with our community, has arrived by the simple act o... read all »
Two Things About Being a Dad
In April of 2016, my wife and I discovered we were going to become parents. When I learned this, being the best possible father was the only thing that really mattered to me. I wanted, and still want, to provide the best possible life I could for my child to come. I had no idea where to begin, but now I have been a father for four years and this Father’s Day, I woul... read all »
The Resurrection of Christ
This coming weekend is Easter Sunday. The day known around America as the day we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. His resurrection was predicted in the Old Testament and came to fruition in the New and this is the day our country has set aside to celebrate the plan God put together at the very beginning of time so that we may have a hope of being in Heav... read all »
Valentine's Day
Today is Valentine’s Day! A day set aside in our society for showing love to our significant other. Now, I have no vendetta against the holiday, but have you’ve noticed that “love” is marketed to us in the forms of jewelry, flowers, candies, and stuffed animals. That is what I have seen my entire life, so I think it’s safe to say that society sees “love”... read all »
What Have We Become?
Evil has shown itself and is waging a war against Christianity and the Gospel of Christ. This morning I saw a video of a man getting knocked out. It seems he was trying to protect others. Afterward, he had his head stomped on multiple times and then his phone was stolen from him as he lay there helpless. During the same incident, a person was stabbed and another 13 pe... read all »
Natural Disasters
This last week, Central Oklahoma experienced a natural disaster. Do you ever wonder why natural disasters occur on earth? I mean, other than reasons science tells us about like soil erosion, seismic activity, tectonic movements, air pressure, and ocean currents; why do they happen? It may seem that, during these times, it’s easy to ask, “Where was God?” We can... read all »
Wait...
I am constantly examining myself. Something I have discovered is that I struggle with procrastination. It is very easy for me to let life take over and procrastinate. Not in just my priorities, but in my everyday relationships as well. Whether it be neglecting text messages and emails for days, putting off a school paper one more time or letting my yard get out of han... read all »
The Beauty of Age
I woke up this morning with a “crick” in my neck. I’ve heard of these, but never had one before. Naturally, I figured I could just stretch it out throughout the morning to ease the pain. Unfortunately, by the time I had gotten to work, the “crick” was so bad I decided to go buy an Icy/Hot patch! I’m glad to tell you that after an hour, I could finally turn... read all »
Be Strong & Courageous
Joshua 1: 8-9, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” I’ve been thinkin... read all »
