Paul’s Praise for the Thessalonians

by Don Wright

During his second missionary journey, Paul made a visit to Thessalonica where he enjoyed some success in disseminating the gospel of Christ (Acts 17:1-9). “Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and […]

Serving God Now

by Don Wright

Procrastination is a flaw shared by many in the world today, and perhaps we are all guilty of it at times. Some people plan to obey the gospel and serve God someday, just not today. It reminds me of the time that Paul preached to Felix, reasoning of righteousness, temperance, and judgment. Felix was moved […]

Stop and Consider

by Don Wright

Sometimes we need to stop and consider things of interest, especially things that pertain to God. Let’s take a few minutes to consider some things revealed to us by God’s Word. Consider the Wondrous Works of God “Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God” (Job 37:14). How one […]

Perfection Is Not a Requirement for Salvation

by Don Wright

Walking in the light is a requirement in order to maintain fellowship with God (1 John 1:7). What, though, does it mean to walk in the light? To walk in the light means being controlled by a desire that is in harmony with the will of God and living within the borders of that will […]

When Is It Right For a Church To Divide?

by Don Wright

Let me begin this article by saying that God is disappointed whenever a local church composed of His children are forced to divide.

by Don Wright

Let me start this article by saying that I do not believe at this stage that this issue under consideration should be made a test of fellowship. I will tell you why I feel that way later on in the article. Having said that, it is my personal belief that conservative brethren need to reconsider […]

Let Us

by Don Wright

As Christians there are some things that we must do for ourselves. Paul once said, “For every man shall bear his own burden” (Galatians 6:5). We took on certain obligations and responsibilities when we obeyed the gospel, and we alone can meet those responsibilities. However, most of the commandments that we have received from God […]

Being Honest with Yourself

by Don Wright

Honesty is a divine criterion for the Christian. The Bible says, “Let us walk honestly, as in the day…” (Romans 13:13). To be honest is to be free from fraud or deception and marked by integrity (Webster). The opposite of being honest would be to be a liar, something that will be punished by eternal […]

Wherein Dwells Righteousness

by Don Wright

Heaven is a wonderful place. The promise of heaven is the most precious promise that we have. This should motivate us to live good lives, to serve God consistently, and to teach the gospel to the lost at every opportunity that we have. Why is heaven such a glorious place? Wherein lies the beauty of […]
