A Fitting Message after Thanksgiving Day

Text: Hebrews 13:15-16

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.  Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Relating to Leadership!

Today’s message from Hebrews 13:7,8, and 17 was a blessing and cleared up some of my questions about these verses and how they apply in a local congregation.   It was also a blessing to hear more of Pastor Don’s testimony of how God worked in his life in his early years a disciple of Christ.

Title: Relating to Leadership

Hebrews 13:7,  Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 13:17,  Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

Are you content or do you love money?

Find out in today’s Bible message that the love of money doesn’t lead to true contentment.  You may have already experienced this in life and will be encouraged to see what God’s Word says on this matter.

Title:  Contentment
Text:  Hebrews 13:5-6, “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’  So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?'”


Today’s message by God’s design, not ours,  coincided with our collection of boxes for Operation Christmas child.   We had over 30 boxes that came from some really cheerful givers!  What joy to share with others from that which God has blessed us!

Honoring Marriage

Several people as they were leaving church today said, “Did you get this one recorded?”   I said, “I hope so!”   Well we did and I am glad to encourage you to give it a listen for the first time or the second.  May God help us to honor marriage in a way that glorifies Him!

Have a great week serving the Lord,  Mark
