Pay Attention!

August 3, 2022

Do we really pay attention when we read the Bible or do a Bible Study? Are we ready to believe everything someone tells us about God’s Word?

Yesterday there was a mistake in the Reference to the Bible verse in this blog. Did you see it? Is there really a book in the Bible called coronavirus? NO!

The reference should have been Corinthians, but in haste the reference was not checked. We need to pay attention when studying God’s Word.

Someone did catch the error and actually the staff of SOS Events laughed over this mistake. We do apologize for the error, but it has taught us a lesson.

Bible Studies!

If you have not done Porter Barrington Bible Studies you are missing a great opportunity to learn more about the Bible, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Start today to study God’s Word.

When And How We Speak

April 20, 2022

The Bible tells us a lot about how and when we should speak.

Proverbs 21 gives great advice, we will stay out of trouble if we keep our mouth shut. Angry? Sop! Say nothing. Wait and allow time to cool off before we address the subject.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

James 1:26 – If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

1 Peter 3:10 – For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

These are great verses, and there are many more, that teach us to be careful how and when to speak. God will bless us abundantly if we can ask Him to help us to speak kind, encouraging words.

Love in The Bible

February 8, 2022

There are hundreds of verses in the Bible on the word “love”. It is a wonderful word study.

There are 4 types of love in the Bible.

  1. Phillia Love – A love that is affectionate but not romantic. This love is usually shared between family and friends.
  2. Eros love – A love that is romantic between a man and woman.
  3. Philautia Love – Is a love and respect we should have for ourselves and the Holy Spirit indwelling within us.
  4. Mania Love – This is a love in which we are obsessed. This love leads to false idols and putting things on a pedestal higher than God

Today we have looked at some interesting facts, however, we can know all about the word LOVE but until we experience God’s love all our knowledge means nothing.

The love of GOD for us is found in the familiar verse, John 3:16, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The Bible

June 16, 2021

Dwight L. Moody said, “The Bible was not given for our information, but for our transformation.”

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

Read the Bible daily. It will change your life. Meditate on God’s Word.

Have a Blessed Sunday

January 17, 2021

“Just sayin’…Church is important. Gathering together as a group of believers is important. Encouragement from the Word and other believers is important. I’m not sure where you are today. Maybe you are tired…be renewed at church. Maybe you are depressed…be uplifted at church. Maybe you are discouraged by the church itself…be reconciled at church. Maybe you have lost your way…be directed at church. Church…Christ died for it. It’s important. Be thankful if you have a choice of church today. Some people do not have a church they have a choice to attend. You do. Be thankful. Go to church. It’s important.” Joy Bowker Crockett

Quote from the wife of a Pastor. She has so much truth and wisdom that her comments are worth reposting. Thank you, Joy.

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Our World In Chaos!

July 25, 2020

There is an answer. It is found in the Bible.

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
