A New Roof

This Sunday we were singing "there's a roof up above me...thank you Lord for your blessing on me." We were blessed with the finances to cover the cost of replacing the entire roof.

God is truly wonderful!

A Decline in Devotion

Certainly, it is not wrong to receive an education; however, you must consider the spiritual influences behind the college courses you intend to take and the ways college might affect you spiritually. If someone were to tell me they planned on attending a for-profit state college and staying on campus while majoring in some sort of liberal arts, I would immediately be concerned.

Service to God is not a sacrifice, it is a privilege. God’s yoke is easy and his burden is light. This saying about God's yoke is referring to how cattle are connected together to pull a plow or wagon. The connection that unites them is called a yoke. An "easy yoke" is like saying that God will not ask you to do anything that it too hard or too difficult for...

We have looked through many old hymnals, scoured sheet music, and interviewed singers and musicians to find the most loved songs, songs with sound doctrine, songs with a theme of victory and of success, and songs that exalt God, Christ, pure living, and holiness.

New Hymnal.

Some songs are about serving God, such as, “His yoke is easy,” and some are singing of “Victory” through Jesus. Other songs teach doctrine, “O church of God” while others encourage, “Jesus is good to me.” The songs of the saints are victorious and full of joy. The theme behind most of these songs is acknowledging the need for Christ, “I need thee every hour” and because of his guiding, psalms such as “There’s within my heart a melody” and “I’m happy, redeemed, and free” ...
