The Word is Everlasting!

     Earthly seeds, earthly productions, and earthly generations, will fail and perish like as the grass and flowers of the field.  The seeds of this world can produce nothing that is everlasting.  Peter also says that this world will perish by fire.  2Pe 3:10   

     Mankind will also perish because we are born of a similar worldly seed.  Mankind is like the flower that fades away.  That is the reality of the lost world.  Thankfully man has been given another option.  We can be born of that everlasting seed, the Word of God.  1Pe 1:23 

     We can choose to obey this incorruptible and everlasting Word resulting in a new birth.  Jn 3:3-7   New birth and salvation is receivable, but we must choose to obey God's Word.  Take notice that Peter does not say we are purified when we "believe the truth" he says when we "obey the truth." 1Pe 1:22 We must deny ourselves and put God first.  Mk 8:34,35

Today, will you be born again, and obey that great Gospel call?


Hear The Word-  Rom 10:17; Acts 4:4

We Must Believe or Have Faith-  Heb 11:6; Acts 16:31

We Must Repent-  Lk 13:3; Acts 17:30

We Must Confess Christ Before Others-  Mt 10:32; Acts 8:37

We Must Be Immersed Into Christ (Baptized)-  1Pe 3:21; Mk 16:16; Acts 2:38  

We Must Remain Faithful-  Rev 2:10; Acts 14:22

In Mt 16:18 He said, "I will build My Church";
In Acts 2:47 at Pentecost He gave it birth.

He commanded baptism for every nation;
Mk 16:16 includes it for the world's salvation.

Practiced at Pentecost in Acts 2:38;
For remission of sins, DO NOT HESITATE.

He set forth His Supper in Gospels three;
Mt 26, Mk 14, also Lk 22, where we see.

It was steadfastly observed in Acts 2:42;
And Acts 20:7 assures it is true.

Unity has been the Bible theme;
No divisions as man has deemed.

Consider what is said in Amos 3:3;
"Can two walk together unless they agree"

David tells us in Ps 133;
How brethren should walk in unity.

United we stand...  Divided we fall;
We will prevail if we do His all.

Let's get ourselves into the Bible place;
"Till we all come to the unity of THE FAITH"

I'm A Christian Only

"What is your religion?" quite often people ask.
My answer is, "I'm Christian," and then begins my task.
"But, what denomination?" they ask in a puzzled tone.
"No denomination, as a Christian I am known."
"No denomination!  I've never heard of such!
Would you please explain?  I'm puzzled very much."

I tell them of Jesus Christ, the Master from above,
Who died on the cross at Calvary to show his endless love.
Of how He said, "I will build my Church."
Then sent her out in the world to search.
For dying people in dark despair,
And conquer Satan everywhere.

Then men came who changed the Word,
Divided the Church; God's wrath incurred.
They called themselves by names of men,
The Bible states that this is sin.
Denominations came about,
And this began the Church's rout.

To stop the devil's victory,
Men started then God's Word to see.
They found in it a perfect plan,
Better than devised by any man.
The plan was simple and quite sane,
By it the Church could rise again.

Before denominations came,
The saints all wore the Master's name.
Believed His Word, obeyed his will,
Worshiped, worked, and watched until;
Christ should come on a cloud of white,
To usher them into eternal light.

And that is why I'm Christian only,
And do not think that I am lonely.
For thousands share this blessed way,
And work and pray until that day.
That denominationalism all will cease,
And Christ's great Church will then increase.
