Over the years the church in Paden City has been blessed to have many preachers visit our pulpit. Many of the lessons they presented were recorded to cassette tapes. We have recently begun the slow process of converting those tapes to digital form. We have begun the process of adding that audio to our website. You can find those lessons by going to our Audio Files page. The Gospel Meetings section is found on the right side of the page. We hope you enjoy hearing these studies and that they will benefit you in your spiritual walk. Keep coming back in the coming weeks as we add more lessons.
Sometimes the decisions we make are made difficult when two or more answers seem good. Wisdom would guide us to accept that when God describes something as being best, we should listen.
If we are going to win the battle over our actions we must first win the battle over our minds. Satan realizes that to challenge us spiritually he needs to simply manipulate and change the way we think. If we allow our thinking to be molded by the world then our actions will follow. This lesson challenges us to win the battle over the way we think.
Can it be said that once choosing to be a believer in Jesus that I will never turn from that conviction? Or do we at times need re-convinced and challenge ourselves to greater faithfulness to our Lord? This lesson addresses these questions and more as we strive to grow in our belief in the Savior.
In Joshua 24:22 Joshua warns the people to be cautious as to the promises they make to serve the Lord. As they cry out "we will serve the Lord God" he reminds them that they become "witnesses against themselves" to that promise. Scripture reveals both positive and negative testimony that many have given concerning their relationship with God. This lesson explores those thoughts.
In 1 Samuel 7 Samuel erects a monument to remind the people of their past transgressions as well as the help that comes from God if we will return to him. Our lives should be a living monument to our Creator. This lesson discusses how God is a "Stone of Help" and how we should honor that assistance.
Moving forward in service to my Creator is crucial. Spiritual growth is desirable from many perspectives. The challenge many face is finding the courage to do the right things when it appears too difficult. This lesson will ask the question, "do I have the courage to press forward?"
Have you ever noticed how some words are used to reference items and thoughts that are not necessarily equal. Is it not odd that we say "I love you" to our children immediately followed by "I love the Steelers." In this lesson we will explore some words that maybe we should be more selective as to when we use them.
Many desire a "personal" relationship with God. Yet some pursue that relationship from the wrong approach. This lesson asks the question, "is declaring a personal relationship with God enough?" How can we determine whether that relationship is genuine or not?
