In Jesus’ Name

George Stiekes

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask IN MY NAME, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:13-14

In the text, Jesus is revealing to the disciples why His departure is to their benefit. There are many incredible things that will take place between His departure and His return and one of them Jesus refers to as “GREATER WORKS” (John 14:12). The church is one of those works (and, I probably should add, the true church, the one still holding to the truths of God’s Word). It is sad that this needs to be stated because there are so many churches that claim to be Christian churches, but the truths of God’s Word are no longer taught or preached.

An honorable Christian man cultivates healthy loves. The kind of love that the Bible advocates is, at its root, a volitional kind of love. By this I mean that we are called upon to choose to love certain things, and by necessity, choose not to love other things. Biblical love also calls upon us to love the right things in the right way and in the right order.

When Jesus was asked which commandment was the greatest in all the Scriptures, He responded by quoting from Deuteronomy 6:4-5, a passage that not many would have guessed as His answer, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”

Authority: Right or Wrong?

Reynold Lemp

FrontLine • September/October 2007

Authority and chain of command are terms we use when we are referring to “who is in charge.” It may be a grocery store owner, a Little League ball team manager, or a big manufacturing executive. God Himself, and only God, established authority. Even in the heavens the law of authority exists. Our own earth is in submission to the law of gravity of the sun. The moon is in submission to the earth.

A blog on Worship

Don Johnson

We’ve highlighted a new blog recently and would like you to take a look at one of their latest offerings:

Worship: It’s More than You Think

You might think this is yet another post on music, but that really isn’t Aaron Berry’s point.

I fear that many of our worship services or events are not true acts of worship at all. Yes, songs are sung, offerings are given, and preaching is heard, but no worship is taking place.
