Psalm 23:6 "God Pursues the Christian With Goodness and Mercy"

We are reminded in this sermon to make God our refuge, to remember His goodness and faithfulness, and to rely on His mercy. We are also reminded that our salvation can be assured when we read how David knew he would "dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Romans 2:12-16 "The Law for the Jew and the Gentile"

These verses remind us that both Jew and Gentil have sinned against God and are under is condemnation. There is no respect of persons. Both the Gentile and the Jew will be judged under "The Law"--the Ten Commandments. In this message Fred A. Malone discusses what is meant by the law and how even the Gentile, who has a consience, will be held responsible.

1 Kings 4 "Every Man Under His Vine and His Fig Tree"

"So Judah and Israel lived in safety, every man under his vine and his fig tree..." This is the theme in the Old Testament. This is the blessing God promised Abraham. In this message this verse is expounded and explained. In chapter four we get a glimpse of Israel worshipping not God but riches. Solomon has become a great king, but in his greatness he forgets God; in his prosperity there was something wrong.

Romans 2:1-11 "All Men's Conscience and the Need for a Godly Life"

In this particular message Fred A. Malone concentrates on men's conscience. We are reminded that all men have a concsience and that through sin we have haredened and suppressed it. We are also reminded of the church's responsibility to awaken the concsience and to urge people to live a holy and changed life through the grace of God.
