3 Reasons for Daily Bible Study

As a father, there are certain habits I have to enforce with my children which they otherwise wouldn’t do. For example, I tell them to brush their teeth, clean their room, watch how they talk to each other, etc. Yet there is one habit I don’t need to enforce: eating. Of course, there are times when I have to “persuade” them to eat certain meals, but I never have to force them to eat; they naturally possess an appetite and…

It’s Never Too Late

How many of you have ever been around a person and think to yourself “How can this person be so wicked and mean?” Throughout my life, I have met several people like this. It’s heartbreaking, discouraging, and kind of makes me mad that a person could be that far away from God and not care.

While this may seem like the description of a Sunday worship service, we just described your everyday Lion’s Club…

Why God’s Promises Matter To God’s People

From the beginning of scripture, we begin to recognize a unique characteristic of God: He makes and keeps promises. Early on, these promises are known as “Covenants” in which God enters into an agreement with humanity. For example, he promised Noah post-flood that he would not bring that form of judgment on the earth again (Gen. 9:11); He still keeps that promise today. He promised Abraham that He would give his descendants the land of Canaan (Gen. 13:14-16) and fulfills…

2018 Theme: Know the Message, Accept the Mission

What is Christianity all about? What does a disciple of Jesus look like in 2018? What does God desire for the Dripping Springs Church of Christ this year? As the leadership asked these questions, two things became apparent: we need to know what we believe, and we need to know how to share it with others. That is, we need to know the message of God and accept the mission of God. Why is this so important and how do…
