|Sorry I Got Caught | Mark P. Spinks, 2010||Repentance|

|The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness | Mark P. Spinks, 2010||Ministry|

|Almost All Are Welcome | Mark P. Spinks, 2011||Discipline|

|How I Learned to Pray for the Lost | Anonymous/Unknown, 2011||Prayer|

|Why I Rest All the Time | Richard J. Erickson, 2011||Rest|
"So then there remains a rest to the people of God. For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief."

|Hear God’s Voice and Follow Him | Fred Pruitt, 2012||Discernment|
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us keep in our hearts a love for the truth and the crucified way, lest we be led astray by any of the deceivers around us.... Those who get grounded and settled in the truth will not be blown about by different winds of doctrine.

|The Responsibility of My Soul | Mark P. Spinks, 2012||Responsibility|
Most human beings do not value their soul as they should, but are instead incredibly careless. This neglect of the soul is beyond irresponsible, beyond criminal, beyond comprehension.... So the souls of men become easy pickings for the enemy of mankind.
