Contentment - A Mystery?

What does the bible say about contentment? Is there such a thing? Is it possible to attain it somehow? Has anyone succeeded in obtaining it? Let's look into it for a little while today. Let's start with a definition so we all know what we are talking about. Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely s…

The Ever-Comforting Spirit

The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, indwells all believers. We see that to be a fact based on God's word in Acts 10:43-47. Read. He is as Eternal as God the Father, and God the Son is. A believing gaze upon Jesus as He is revealed in the scriptures, the One who is the image of the invisible God (2Cor.4:4), the One in whom the fullness…

Our Constant Antagonist

In preparation for our first of the season meetings on Sunday night, the GCC Scripture memory program will embark on a season of learning more of spiritual warfare in our life. We have a constant adversary about us, one who is always against us and never for us. We have much to learn to combat any enemy in life to be kept from being overcome by it,…

Watching Over Us

Last week I shared a story with you that I finish our new members class with, but just moments before that, I like to share a little bit about a verse that is of great benefit to anyone who is a disciple of Jesus Christ, on his walk with Him. As we walk by faith in Him, forsaking all else to follow Him, how can we best make it from first being fill…

God's Sovereignty

This is a story that I share with all the new members to be before we close the books on the class and enter the arena of an interview with an Elder. A woman writes," When she was born, a treatable disease was misdiagnosed, and she was paralyzed. By age 14 she had had 21 surgeries and was cruelly treated by other children calling her 'crippled'. Sh…

Joy in the Lord

Joy is defined as, "the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation." It is listed second only to love in the fruits of the Spirit in Gal.5:22. In regards to the birth of the Christ child and the resurrection of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the word joy is used many time…

Baptism

With a Baptism to take place this upcoming Sunday, I thought we could spend a little time on it today. It is one of two ordinances in the church age today that Jesus calls us to carry out. One is the Lord's supper, communion, as often as you do this you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. This is done over and over, monthly at GCC. The other …

Letting the Word Dwell Richly

Colossians 3:16 The apostle exhorts us to, "Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you." Pastor Groves mentions this to the flock nearly every week of the year. Here is a great illustration of it. A beautiful and touching story is told of a young French girl who had been born blind. After she learned to read by touch, a friend gave her a Brai…

The Winds and the Waves

Read Psalm 107:23-32 There is hardly a more relaxing place to enjoy than being out on a beautifully God created body of water. The splendor, color, and life that abounds in these beautiful bodies of water are a sight to behold. Whether a vacationer or employee on these great waters, they are not always calm. As in Psalm 107, a stormy gale can caus…

Out of the Darkness

Read Psalm 107:10-16 The problem or predicament is one being in a prison, a place of darkness, like a tomb or cave, damp, filthy, cold, not fit for man nor beast. The way of the transgressor is hard indeed. The ready eminence of execution as death brings horror to the soul and hangs in the air. Helplessness, hopelessness, bound in misery as well a…
