Baptism Is Immersion (April 19)

Baptism Is Immersion (April 19)

Faith and Trust (April 18)

Faith and Trust (April 18) 

We can deplore Israel’s lack of trust when they backed away from God’s command, but do we do any better? When it comes to obeying the gospel of Christ, do we trust God enough to do what He has told us, confident that His wisdom is always best?

Selfish Motives Are Not Strong Enough (April 19)

Selfish Motives Are Not Strong Enough (April 19)

Unity (April 18)

Unity (April 18) 

In any relationship where we don’t presently have the unity we’d like to enjoy, the answer is not merely to try harder . . . We must change not only the quantity of our effort but the quality of our thinking. Our perspective must be altered.
