      SYNOPSIS:The Lord coming to the disciples in dark of night, after they had struggled for hours with dangerous wind and rain describes many times in our life. Although the disciples were without Christ in body during their struggle, they were not really alone, as He was praying and aware of their needs. So it is with us. When the Lord comes to us in the midst of our struggles, do we recognize him, or are we of "little faith"?

    • When The Disciples Saw Him Walking On The Sea They Were Troubled Saying It Is A Spirit And They Cried Out For Fear
      Matthew 14-22-34
      2012-08-05
      SYNOPSIS:When Jesus walked on the water to join the disciples in their boat, the Gospel mentioned that they were afraid - twice. When He approached, they thought they saw a spirit and were afraid, and of course, Peter became afraid when he saw the waves and felt the wind, when he was attempting to walk on the waves to Jesus. They *should not* have been afraid! The Lord had just performed a stupendous miracle, and they should have known that He would always protect them. Why were they afraid? It was for the same reasons that we are afraid, or suffer from the common modern version of fear - anxiety.

      SYNOPSIS:When Saint Paul talks about the Christian life, it can just as much be applied to married life, since, in Christian marriage, two become one. In his epistle to the Corinthians, he states many things that describe marriage and family life. "We are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. " "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon" "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. " All these sayings can be profitably interpreted as instructions not only to all Christians. but all Christian marriages.

      SYNOPSIS:Every question in the scripture is meant to be answered. There are no rhetorical questions in the scripture. Here is a question from the Gospel today which we will answer: We answer this question partly by confessing that few believe wholly in the resurrection, and few are obey the words of the Apostle: "For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry". We discuss the various kinds of doubt (they are legion) and of labor.
