Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Back to Preaching, But Keep Up On Your BIBS

November 25th, 2016

Last week, the men focused on Prov. 24:10 from our BIBS, “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” We related it to doing right when it’s easy AND when it’s hard.

Some of the guys mentioned marriages failing because a man couldn’t stay committed to his marriage any more.

Then it got real. Because none of the teen guys were married.

Where can YOU be committed? Where have YOU failed when the work gets hard?

How about BIBS? How about your daily devotions?

I mentioned to the guys that during our six weeks off class (when we met in the sanctuary for combined services), almost everyone’s numbers dipped. Almost every person was less consistent with their daily devotions. When we got back to our weekly meetings together (accountability), your numbers picked back up!

One of the main things I emphasize in the Teens of Faith is that you—YOU—should have a relationship with God. A personal walk with Him. It has to be real to you. He speaks through His Word, and it’s the main way to hear His voice. A good relationship with God is impossible without a consistent diet of God’s voice.

I like Mrs. Wilson’s testimony from last week. She told the ladies that when she was newly saved, someone told her that she should read the Bible through each year, and Mrs. Wilson was just crazy enough to believe it would help her! So she has… thirty-something times!

That’s pretty cool. Adversity has come to her, I’m sure, but she hasn’t fainted yet! I’d say her strength is pretty not-small.
