Beloved, Test the Spirits

Beloved, Test the Spirits

Given by David Johnson

When the apostle John told the brethren to "test the spirits whether they are of God," he was writing to a church much like the church today. A close study shows us he was not talking primarily about spirit beings but about attitudes. Christians are admonished to make sure the attitudes they are receiving are really godly. How do we do that? More important, are we doing that or just opening ourselves to anything?

Take a Step Back

These Words Shall Be in Your Heart

Given by Joel Meeker

Modern society is transitioning from a text-orientation to an image-orientation. How should a Christian consider this? How important should reading be to us? How should we communicate online? Answers to these questions are all related, and guiding principles are found in the Bible.

But I Thought It Was That Way …

But I Thought It Was That Way …

Given by David Johnson

The Israelites didn’t take the route they expected when leaving Egypt. How about us? Are we taking the lessons of Unleavened Bread with us as we head toward Pentecost? Are we still taking in the mind of Christ—the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth? Or has the world begun to leaven our thinking?

A Still Small Voice

A Still Small Voice

Given by Jim Franks

Fear is a natural human emotion. There are circumstances when having fear is not only good, but warranted. It is when fear paralyzes us and prevents us from following God or hinders our relationship with God that it must be overcome. The example of the prophet Elijah and the “still small voice” that directed him when he was overwhelmed with fear provides us insight into dealing with our fears, even when they’re justified.
