Job had kept his hurt within himself because there was no one else with which to share it, but when three of his friends came to him, he finally began to vent. Chapter 3 shows us that when we are unable to understand God's reasons, we must still trust in His wisdom.
We have been talking about the book of JOB, which some scholars believe to be the oldest book of the bible, and written by Moses as he wandered the deserts. So far, in chapters 1 and 2, we see where Satan got permission from God to attack Job. The only stipulation was that Satan would not cause ...read more

This is the second attempt by Satan to get Job to curse God after the first attempt failed. This shows that true lovers of the Lord will remain true lovers of the Lord, even in times of deep trouble or grief.
Last Sunday, we talked about how Job lost everything he had, including all physical property along with all his children. And how, even though he suffered, he did not blame God, but chose to worship God instead. Today, Satan gives him another test designed to test his loyalty to God, and we will ...read more

A woman who was despised by the Jews and the Samaritans finds living water at the well on a hot afternoon. And she becomes an evangelist for the Lord. Intriguing and example-setting yet today for all of us.
Today, let’s talk about another woman who was saved by the power of Jesus Christ; a woman we have all referred to as “The Woman at the Well.” We find her story in the 4th chapter of the book of JOHN. As we read the Gospels, we see that Jesus’ approach to proclaiming the Good News was decidedly ...read more

Mary Magdalene is another of the many women in the bible who has been shown to have had very strong faith and who served in some capacity of a ministry. Hers was to support the Lord Jesus and his disciples as they traveled the countryside preaching the Good News.
We have recently been studying about some of the women of the bible who had strong faith. I would like to continue that theme this morning by talking about Mary Magdalene; another woman who had exceptionally strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. She was called Mary Magdalene because she was from ...read more

In Joshua 2, we read about a woman named Rahab. She was a prostitute who had faith in God, helped the Israelites, and even became the 35th great-grandmother of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please turn in your bibles to the book of JOSHUA, chapter 2. Our subject today will be on a woman named Rahab. Rahab was a prostitute. Should we shun her or love her? I think most people would be surprised to know we are called to love her with our hearts. But to do this we must first ...read more

THE NEW GUY We all need real hope. There were four ladies in a nursing home one time that were sitting there talking, and the nurse brings in a new man to the facility. He was quite dapper for an older man, and one of the ladies asked him where he had been for so long. He responded by ...read more

PRAYER AND THE MOTORCYCLE There was a woman at work when she received a phone call that her daughter was very sick with a fever. She left work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication for her daughter. She returned to her car to find that she had locked the keys inside the car ...read more

In verse 15, it tells us what will happen to those people who do not accept the Evil One’s mark: “15 … and all who refuse to worship the image or take his mark will be killed.” I saw recently where Motorola has developed an all inclusive data chip that is no larger than a grain of rice. It ...read more

THE SAVIOR AND THE JUDGE I heard a story that took place in a western town in the late 1800's. It told of a horse that was spooked and then bolted, running away uncontrollably with a small boy in the bed of the wagon. Seeing the child was in grave danger, a young man risked his life to catch ...read more

VICTOR, NOT THE VICTIM I used to work for the Post Office and when I became serious about the Lord, it must have really shown in my actions and words, because people all of a sudden began making fun of me and giving me snide comments. At times it was difficult, but I remained steadfast in my ...read more
