Fathers Who Give Hope, Part 2

Sunday, June 17, 2018

Lasserre Bradley, Jr.

“Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged” (Colossians 3:21).

In contrast to discouraging children by provoking them to anger, fathers are to give hope. We first consider, what should be the motive of the father. Of course, his motive above all else should be to honor God and use God’s word as his guide. Then we look at ways fathers can cause children to become discouraged. And finally how the father gives hope.

God Uses the Weak - Sunday, June 3, 2018

“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty” (I Corinthians 1:27).

In looking at I Corinthians 1:26-29, we observe first God’s Method. We look at a number of examples in both the Old and New Testaments which confirm that God uses weak things. Next we consider God’s Purpose. God’s purpose is to bring glory to His name and allow no place for man to exalt himself. Finally we see God’s Blessing. Although we are weak in ourselves we are enabled by Him to do what needs to be done to His glory.

Ephraim is Joined To His Idols, Part 2 - Sunday, May 27, 2018

“Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone” (Hosea 4:17).

As we look at this text we first see a backslidden people. There was a lack of knowledge, they left off to take heed to the Lord and they were joined to idols. Next we see a call to separation. God calls His people to be separate from the world around them—not live in isolation but not to love the world or be influenced by it. Finally we observe there is hope. God will deal with His people so that they are ashamed of their sinful behavior which will lead to true repentance.

The Biblical View of a Good Mother, Part 2 - Sunday, May 13, 2018

"Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways  of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her" (Proverbs 31:25-28).

The culture in which we live is changing rapidly and those changes are certainly reflected in the varied opinions held regarding the family and the role of mother and father. As always we need to go to God's word to find out what is expected of a good mother. What a blessing when a godly mother ministers to her children and those children arise to call her blessed. Let us give thanks for the mothers who are filling that role and pray that God will give grace to each one who is striving to honor the Lord as they guide their children.

The Importance of Knowledge, Part 2 - Sunday, April 29, 2018

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children" (Hosea 4:6).

First we consider, the lack of knowledge. There was a failure on the part of the priests to proclaim all the truth and when they did set forth truth the people rejected it. We next consider, the need of knowledge. The knowledge of God's truth is vital in the lives of His people. We then deal with the defense of knowledge, and finally the proclamation of the truth.

A Story With A Great Message, Part 2 - Sunday, April 15, 2018

“So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley” (Hosea 3:2).

First we see here a wife in trouble. Hosea’s wife, Gomer, continued to sink deeper in sin and was now to be sold as a slave. Next we see her husband rescuing her. What a message concerning the love of God for His people whom He has redeemed. And finally we observe a time of great blessing. When the backslider is brought back, when the lost is found is a time of rejoicing.
