Side Affects of the Storm

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Jun 23, 2019 | Comments Off on Side Affects of the Storm

The gospel of Mark records for us a storm that descends upon Christ and His disciples in chapter 4, verse 37. The following is that account: “And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.” There are a few brief points we have…

A Proper Ambassador

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Jun 20, 2019 | Comments Off on A Proper Ambassador

We read the following in 2 Corinthians 5:20: “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” The word “ambassadors” here means, “act as a representative;” hence the believer is a representative of Christ. A good question to…

Delivering Someone to Satan

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Jun 5, 2019 | Comments Off on Delivering Someone to Satan

Paul wrote of delivering different people unto Satan and I thought this evening we would address this odd act of the apostle. I mean, it does sound like a strange thing to do, right? Delivering someone to Satan almost sounds like a betrayal of sorts, however it serves a purpose. One of which, I do…

When the Excitement Subsides

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Jun 2, 2019 | Comments Off on When the Excitement Subsides

My thoughts today are on the preacher, the man of God, which includes, but is not limited to the pastor, the evangelist, the missionary and etc. However, the subject today is not reserved only for the men who serve in that capacity, for they are examples to be followed. We believe, then that what affects…

Precious Memories

Today is Memorial Day 2019 and recently I was looking through some photos from 9 years ago. Now, I realize that Memorial Day was started specifically for the honor of those who gave their lives in fighting for the freedoms we so dearly enjoy. I want to take this opportunity to say how grateful I…

“Invested or Indifferent?”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | May 12, 2019 | Comments Off on “Invested or Indifferent?”

Since 1997, I have been involved in the church, in various ways. These include, but are not limited to being: a youth leader, a church member (pew sitter), associate minister, pastor, Sunday School teacher, janitor and grounds keeper. Over the years, I have had my seasons of being detached or distant, due to multiple reasons.…

“One Word”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | May 1, 2019 | Comments Off on “One Word”

Sunday morning, during Sunday School, I was asked a question, “What is God’s greatest gift to me?” I thought for about one second and said, “Salvation.” This provoked a discussion regarding Christ and which is greater, his birth or his resurrection. Upon discussing the matter, I determined the matter in such as this. Christ is…

“Don’t Rush In So Quickly”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Apr 28, 2019 | Comments Off on “Don’t Rush In So Quickly”

Introduction: This morning (Sunday, April 28, 2019) I was reading in Corinthians, the 16th chapter and in 22nd verse I came across a familiar, yet obscure word in the bible. Actually it was two words, “Anathema Maranatha.” Nowhere else in the bible do these two words appear. That, in itself, provokes me to give extra…

It’s that time of year again…Easter Millions will hide eggs from their children to watch them run around searching for prizes, to see how many eggs they can find. Others will attend church the one of two times they do every year, while others will attend this Sunday just like they do every other Sunday.…

“Humble Knowledge = Effective Wisdom”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Mar 2, 2019 | Comments Off on “Humble Knowledge = Effective Wisdom”

Jesus Christ made a very profound statement that was recorded by Matthew, “For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?” Borrowing from the spirit of His words, I would say, “If you communicate only with those who agree with you, what reward do you receive?” It seems as though I read…
