- Paul's Charge to Timothy is Ours Too
My beloved fellow elders; preachers; Bible class teachers and Disciples of Christ, please consider that Paul’s charge to Timothy is our charge also. “O make your church, dear Savior, a lamp of purest gold; to bear before the nations your true light as of old. O teach your wand ring pilgrims by their path to trace; till clouds and darkness ended; they see you; face to face.” (PH&SS, p.279)
- Gospel Preaching Changes Lives
Strong Bible centered sermons provoke us to see ourselves as God sees us. We are commanded to “Be doers of the word and not hearers only…” (James 1:22-25) Doers of the word will be blessed; not forgetful hearers. The very nature of repentance is a change of mind that affects a change of conduct. Where there is no change in one’s conduct there is no repentance.

“…That is, only to one who is a Christian; with a proper sense of her obligations to Christ, and so as to promote his glory. The apostle supposed that could not be done if she were allowed to marry a pagan, or one of a different religion.” (Barnes' Notes)
