And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

The Best Choice

In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus had come into the village where Martha lived and was warmly welcomed into her home.  Martha was no doubt thrilled to have Jesus in her home and she immediately became preoccupied with making preparations to serve Him.  Mary, Martha’s sister chose to sit at Jesus feet [...]

Our Blessed Hope

Our spring revival with Dr. Bob Shelton was an immense blessing to all who attended.  It is encouraging to be in a position to see what The Lord has told us would come to pass, come to pass.  How should we respond to all this?  We should be doing as [...]

A Magnificent Way To Live

The most important thing that true believers should do each day is to yield themselves to the control of the Holy Spirit.  The Lord has placed His Holy Spirit in the life of every true believer, and each believer should do what Ephesians 5:18 commands them to do, which is; [...]

And It Came To Pass

Christmas time brings our mind to the Christmas story as told in Luke 2.  “And it came to pass in those days,”. . .  God, the divine controller of the universe, moved in Caesar Augustus’s heart to register the whole world for taxing purposes.  God had already said that the [...]

Expect Opposition

The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 16:9, “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.”  “A great door and effectual” means “a door of opportunity is opened to do effective work.”  Warren Wiersbe said, “Opportunities and adversaries usually go together.”  Any Christ [...]

Are You Free?

The 4th of July is the time when we celebrate our independence as a nation from British rule.  On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. This freedom came at a high cost for our forefathers.  The closing words of the document solemnly declare: “With a firm reliance [...]

Over three years ago I asked an experienced pastor friend who had experience in building church buildings for some advice on whether or  not to go forward with our building plans.  He referred me to Joshua 3:13 where the Lord said to Joshua, “And it shall come to pass, as [...]

God’s Ordered Steps

Psalm 37:23 says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.”  Do you believe this?  Does God really order the steps of a good man?  What is a good man anyway?  What is the right response to God’s ordered steps?  These [...]

Redeeming the Time

“Redeeming the Time” is the theme we have chosen for 2009 here at GMBC.  Our scripture verse is Colossians 4:5 “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”  One of the best and wisest uses of our time is to “walk in wisdom toward them that are [...]

Let’s Keep Our American Flag Flying Proudly

I recently read the following description of our Flag from Thomas E. Wicks, Sr.  It stirred me to think of all that our Flag stands for. “I am your Flag. I was born on June 14th, 1777. I am more than just cloth shaped into a design. I am the [...]
