Cammi Jones runs an emergency veterinarian clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. A man brought in a dog that had been badly injured in an accident. Cammi examined the dog, which would need extensive surgery to survive. She informed the owner and gave him the estimate for how much it would cost. The owner told Cammi: "Look, just put the dog to sleep. He's really my wife's dog and I don't want to spend that kind of money to keep it alive." He left the dog...

Now if you have your Bible this morning I want you to turn to the Gospel of Mark Chapter 6. For those of you who are new to us, we have been studying the Gospel of Mark this year and we are looking today at Mark 6 beginning with Verse 14. I want to speak today on this subject ''The Death of a Conscience''. This is a study that revolves around the character of the man called Herod...

This is King Herod's view of the Christmas events. By all estimates, Herod was a shrewd and cunning politician who ruled his country for thirty-six years with intimidation and fear. He was also a very insecure king. Herod reigned at the pleasure of the Roman Empire that had occupied Israel over fifty years earlier. Our scene is imaginary. The facts are true. The place: Herod's...

The words of Eleanor Roosevelt ring true: One's philosophy is not best expressed in words. It is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility. To put it another way, "Life is result of our choices." It may be true that there are two sides...

For a number of weeks I have been pursuing a series of studies about People Jesus met. Along the way the Lord Jesus Christ came in contact with many interesting people. Jesus had a great deal to say to these individuals. It seem that Jesus always had a word for those who needed it. Sometimes it would be a tender word of forgiveness. At other times it would be a stern...

When Herod was dead!'' Literally, ''When Herod was ended.'' That is the only good thing about bad men- finally, they die; they are ended. The Bible is a book of powerful contrasts. Its characters stand up against one another in overwhelming comparison: Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau, Pharaoh and Moses, Elijah and Jezebel, John the Baptist and Herod Antipas...

In our last lesson, we saw how, following the death of Stephen and the continued persecution of believers, the saints were scattered throughout different parts of the region-some to Phoenicia, some to Antioch and some to the island of Cyprus, an island located in the Mediterranean Sea. Because of this dispersion, many...

For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly (Mark 6:20). John sought no honor among men. It was his delight to say concerning our Lord Jesus, ''He must increase, but I must decrease'' (John 3:30). Yet, though John sought no honor of men, he had honor. For it is written, Herod feared John. Herod was a...

''You are not responsible for someone else's decisions.'' I had been counseling one struggling with some serious abuse and contemplating taking her life. What she faced bore down on me, and I struggled under the weight of her decisions. The school counselor knew the situation, and he told me I was not responsible for someone else's decisions. Oppressive weight fell from my shoulders. I cannot assume responsibility for the...

Let's begin today by playing ''Name That Tune.'' I'm going to play some instrumental snippets of traditional Christmas songs and you see how soon you can guess the tune: Jingle Bells, Rudolph, Frosty, Silver Bells, Silent Night...Theme from Jaws. Now what is that last song doing in there? Christmas songs, by definition, are supposed to be upbeat, joyful and happy because that's the nature of the Christmas...

There is a story of gifts in the Bible that we all know from the story of Christmas. We are going to look at these gifts, and hopefully be challenged in what Christmas is really about! After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived unexpectedly in...

These verses complete Matthew's Christmas journey. We have gone from the Far East, to the city of Jerusalem, down to the little village of Bethlehem, into the land of Egypt and now to the village of Nazareth. We have also completed a Journey in the Old Testament because we have gone from gone from Micah 5 to...

Every Who down in Who-ville liked a Christmas a lot…But the Grinch, who lived just north of Who-ville did NOT! The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season! Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason. It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were...

I was reading some of the children's letters to Santa, and there were two or three of them that struck me. One of the said, ''Dear Santa, You didn't bring me anything good last year. In fact, you didn't bring me anything good the year before that either. This is your last chance. (Signed) Albert.'' I really like this one. It said, ''Dear...

These words, first spoken on television on September 8, 1966, gave the world its first glimpse of Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future.

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with...
