Back to School Advice for Students
by Stan Coffey
If you have your Bibles this morning, I want you to turn to Proverbs, chapter 3. The wisest man in all the Old Testament wrote the book of Proverbs, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit is Solomon. We are in that season once again where students are going back to school and I wanted to preach a special message especially for our students. Our students are going back...

Wisdom For The New School Year (10 of 12)
by Ernest Easley
Tonight as we continue our summer series of messages under the heading of GOT WISDOM.... we find ourselves in Proverbs 3 thinking about Wisdom for the New School Year. Believe it or not... school starts in two days! School is the mouse race that equips you for the rat race! Listen folks... school days can the happiest days of your life... if your kids are old enough to attend! Have you seen that commercial on Television that in the background somebody is singing, ''It's the most wonderful time of the year?''
by James Merritt
1. I saw a cartoon in a newspaper once, and the first frame showed a thief that was wearing a mask, and his gun was pointed toward a frightened victim. The next scene the robber is holding out a sack and saying, ''Give me all of your valuables!'' In the next scene the victim begins stuffing into the sack all of his friends. 2. I don't believe there is hardly anything in life, outside of salvation, that is more valuable than a true friend. With few exceptions, people everywhere hunger to have friends; I mean real friends, true friends. You'll learn in life that you may think you count many friends, but there aren't many friends that you can count on.
Friends Are Friends Forever (36 of 36)
by Jerry Vines
Do you have a friend? Maybe you have a number of acquaintances, but do you have a friend? You may have several casual friends—a number of people you would put into the category of your casual friends. But do you really have one or two or three, true-blue friends? Do some names come to your mind right now? I wonder if there are some individuals you could...
Making Friends for Eternity
by Jesse Hendley
In Luke chapter 16, verse 9, we have a wonderful word, the word ''ETERNAL,'' aionios in the Greek. ''And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness, that when ye fail, they may receive you into EVERLASTING habitations.'' This word aionios means literally, ''age-long,'' or ''eternal.'' It is used several different ways in the New Testament.
How to Pray for Unsaved Friends
by Rex Yancey
Someone has said ''More is wrought by prayer than this world ever dreamed of.'' I do not believe in prayer. However, I do believe in a God who answers prayer. There is a difference. Prayer is the privilege of small children and the work of strong men and women. It is one of the greatest privileges we have as Christians. I believe we experience many failures because we fail to pray.
A Friend Loveth at All Times

A Friend Loveth at All Times by Dan Rodgers
Have you ever thought about how many friends you really have? I mean true friends, not "fair weather friends," not the "here today and gone tomorrow" kind of friends. I’m talking about friends who stick with you through thick and thin, friends you can trust, friends who will be there when you need them...

The Power of Focus (1 of 5)
by M. Kenneth Lyon
I would ask that you keep your Bibles open and turn to the first and second chapters of Nehemiah so that you can follow along, that specifically where we're going to be dealing today. How many of you remember and maybe still enjoy that perennial childhood favorite Cracker Jacks. Yeah! Candy-coated popcorn, peanuts, and a prize. You know, I just loved Cracker Jacks. I loved getting down there to find out what the prize was going to be.
Why the School Strike
by Richard Laue
The Word of God is not of much value unless it can be applied. The passage we face today applies to a contemporary situation in our city, the teachers' strike. One time in an average size city, the public school teachers and the administration (the school board) could not get together on a contract. The outgrowth of the....
Old School (4 of 12)
by Thomas Swope
16 And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment-wickedness was there, in the place of justice-wickedness was there. 17 I said to myself, "God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed." 18 I also said to myself, "As for ....

Well as we've mentioned tomorrow is a big day for so many people for so many kids going to school and many kids are going to school for the very first time. Now I want us to see how many hands, you're going to school, to all day school for the very first time, can I see your hand? I guess they're little hands I can't see...
Encouragement, Concerns, Challenges, and Friends
by Johnny Hunt
In the final third of the Book of Acts, Dr. Luke records Paul's journey to Jerusalem, his arrest there, and his voyage to Rome. The Gospel of Luke follows a similar pattern as Luke describes Christ's journey to Jerusalem to die. Much as Jesus set His face ''like a flint'' to do the Father's will, so Paul determined to finish his course with...
