Remember “All” With Fondness Have we forgotten to thank God for our brothers and sisters in Christ? I think far too often we take for granted those who sit next to us in church. We see them every Sunday; know their kids and where they work. But have we taken the time to thank them … Read more

Called To Be Saints A saint is not a football player, nor is he or she someone super holy having been canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. The Greek word for saint is “hagios,” which is where we get our English word for “holy.” So, a saint is someone who is holy. Therefore, we are … Read more

Don’t Disregard the Old for the New When something is new, we tend to disregard the old. However this should never be the case when it comes to the New Covenant as opposed to the Old (New Testament verses the Old Testament). There are many today who have done just that. Their thought is something … Read more

Grace to Obey The Apostle Paul says, “Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name” (Romans 1:5). What is grace?

The Power of Words Moses learned a valuable lesson about needing to have what he says under God’s control.

Christmas is For-Giving Today I’d like to share with you an integral part of our giving this Christmas, and that is our need to be “for-giving.” Forgiveness is something that touches every aspect of our lives.

Confident in God’s Work The Apostle Paul makes a wonderful, magnificent, and significant statement of faith that God will complete what He has started in and through us. “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6) … Read more

A Light Shines in the Darkness Looking at the Jewish calendar I noticed today is the beginning of Hanukkah, the festival of lights celebrating how God miraculously provided 8 days of oil to keep the Menorah burning when they only had enough oil for one. It was this festival of lights that got me pondering … Read more

Imparting the Holy Spirit To impart means to give a part or share. When given a gift from the Holy Spirit, we are to impart that gift to others. Example: When the Holy Spirit gives a word of knowledge or wisdom we are to impart them to others as He intended. But can we impart … Read more

A New Normal Once a house is destroyed by an earthquake, there it cannot be rebuilt to its first specifications. Changes to the design need to be made, along with changes due to our present situation. The same goes for those losses that happen in our lives. This reality hit home when I was asked … Read more

Jesus Christ our Cornerstone “Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.’” (Isaiah 28:16-17) In Ephesians 2:20, Paul confirms that this firm and tested … Read more

The Capability of God How capable is God to handle and help us through devastating times? God Cares “What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?” (Psalm 8:4) Jesus said in Luke 12:7 that if God takes care of the sparrow that neither sows or … Read more

Ready or Not In the children’s game, “Hide and Seek.” A child counts to one hundred, and during that time the other children try to hide. When he or she finishing counting they say, “Ready or not, here I come.” Well, the count is about over, and Jesus is about to say, “Ready or not, … Read more

Listen Only To Jesus Jesus took Peter, James and John up on a high mountain by themselves where he was transfigured before them. His face shined as bright as the sun, and his clothes became brighter than light. And right next to Him, on either side, stood Moses and Elijah. Taken back by this sight … Read more

Thanksgiving Treasure Thanksgiving is the only national holiday that doesn’t commemorate someone’s birthday, an anniversary, or battle. It’s distinctive in that it’s a day set aside for America to express thanks to God. On October 3, 1789 George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation. “Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the … Read more

Righteousness Supersedes Being Right When Jesus went to be baptized by John the Baptist, John refused saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?” (Matthew 3:14) John realized that Jesus was the long awaited Messiah and understood that he needed to be baptized by Jesus and not the other … Read more

Nothing Could Be Finer These are part of the lyrics of a song made popular in the 1940’s “Carolina in the Morning.” The premise is that nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina with one’s ‘sweetie.’ And no offense to the lyricist, but I would have to disagree along with the Psalmist. He … Read more

Whom Will We Please There comes a time when we have to stop trying to please others and just tell the truth. But we must make sure it is God’s truth and not what we may feel, and it should always be connected to Kingdom of God business. This was what Elihu said when He … Read more

Let’s Stop Fooling Ourselves Since humanity’s greatest need is seeking after and finding God, why are people so foolish saying that there is no God?
