Here's a quick thought from my personal Bible study, and if you want to be an effective teacher that God can use, you really need to hear this. Join me in looking quickly at Proverbs 30:2 to learn a life-changing truth.
Do you know what it means to "lay up treasure in heaven"? Do you know what the Bible teaches about crowns and how this may affect your future service for God? And did you know that you can lose your eternal reward, even though your salvation in Christ will never change? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to learn what the Bible teaches about these important questions.
Do you fight big battles and seem to win, but fail in the little things? That’s what Bobby Leach did as a stuntman. Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller in remembering this ironic and tragic story, and consider how we can learn a biblical insight that can prevent big problems in your future.
Are you deeply thankful when another person corrects you or points out a potential problem in your life? Or do you respond the opposite way? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to learn the right way to respond to correction.
Are you easily offended? Thin-skinned? Hypersensitive? Touchy? Do you lose spiritual focus when a stranger slings a rude comment your way? A friend misses a planned appointment? A preacher mentions your pet sin? Relatives forget your birthday? A church member asks why you were absent from a service? Your spouse asks you about anything? If any of this is true about you, I won't tell anyone. And guess what, you’re not alone. Many Christians share your struggle, but they don’t have to! Join me in looking at a very special and helpful thought from Psalm 119:165 that will show you how to never be offended.
Should a Christian seek out opportunities for community service, apart from family and church venues and apart from job responsibilities? Every Christian should seek out opportunities for service. It is the Christian thing to do (Mark 10:44-45). But what service and in what venues? Opportunities to serve blanket the world as trees in a jungle. What should you do? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to consider helpful Bible principles to evaluate service opportunities as a Christian.
