Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday, May 8, 2022. As we all think about our mothers on this special and important day, we need to remember how important mothers are to us and to the world at large. I can’t help but think about those people in our culture, seems like a small minority, but growing, that have a hard time defining what gender mothers are. ...
The biblical principle of giving to God is one of the most misunderstood and misused topics within the church. In order to help us here at Grace Bible Church to be informed about this biblical issues, so that we are giving from an informed mind and heart I would like to hit several high points about giving. Obviously, we can’t discuss all the Bible teaches about giving here in this format, but I am sure we can cover some good ground. ...
If we were to number all the ways God has blessed us from our salvation to everyday provisions we could never repay God for His kindness. This truth is outlined in many places in the Bible. The essence of giving is an act of worship. This worship is founded upon God’s benevolence to His people. In both the OT and NT we see this pattern played out in the lives of God’s people. ...
When we face a challenge, we tend to solve it by throwing money at it or picking up the phone and calling the smartest person we know, rather than turning to God. ...Keep Reading

It is in these moments when we face undue speech we must learn to trust in God’s care for us when we can’t fight our own battles. ...Keep Reading
Do we really think about how our theology impacts our daily lives? The late Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said it best, "The Christian life is doctrine on fire." He held that doctrine was a practical truth about God that was to be impressedonto our mind so that we might live for the glory of God. This is especially valuable when we are faced with a trial and need to be remind...Keep Reading
The saying, "Once a man and twice a child," accents a common truth that we begin our life in great need, and we will end our lives in great need. We come into this world unable to care for ourselves, and as we age, we exit this world unable to care for ourselves. As true as this is, there is a greater truth at work in the Christian's life. This truth, as hard as it might...Keep Reading
In this new blog series, we are considering, "If God does everything for His sake, how can we be like God and do all things for His glory?" What captures our hearts and minds will usually be the things we will be committed to. As followers of Christ, we are called to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind. In others words, God should capture our affections. If this...Keep Reading
Life is filled with many motivations. The promise of a job after education drives us to work hard in school. We are motivated to seek out work so that we can provide for our families. There are numerous motivations in life, but there is one motivation in life that surpasses all others, the glory of God. For the believer, the glory of God should be the driving force in all ...Keep Reading
How sound is your commitment to Lord Jesus Christ? Is your commitment to God based on what God does for you? I am afraid that much of evangelical beliefs are focused on a doctrine that teaches God is our servant and is here for our happiness. If we survey Scripture with just a little effort, we will discover this is not true. In the life of Job, for example, we see a man ...Keep Reading
One the most common places we see sin manifested is in the areas of authority and submission. It is quite evident that one effect of sin is fear. We live in a pretty scary world, yet the most common command in the Bible is not to fear. We are also afraid of not getting what we feel we deserve. Whether we are talking about the church or the world, we can see that sin has co...Keep Reading
