We Need One Another

July 22, 2024

Whenever people say they can be a Christian without being part of a local church body, they are missing a good portion of what the Bible describes of the accountability and interpersonal involvement in the words, “one another.” Depending upon the translation, you’ll find upwards of 24 times the words “one another” are used in […]

Finding Enjoyment on The Job

July 15, 2024

From the beginning of man’s existence, work was a source of fulfillment and joy. Think about Adam being placed in the Garden of Eden to work the garden and keep it. It was that very garden that God used to provide food for Adam and in that garden was but one tree that Adam was […]

A Very Present Help

July 8, 2024

Have you ever felt alone and even that God had abandoned you or at least was not paying attention to your cries? It’s important when you get in that state to have something to remind you of the truth. The book of Psalms is wonderful to have on hand for that very reason. We can […]

Wondrous Things

July 1, 2024

The Bible is full of superlatives as in the ongoing quest to find the words to adequately describe God and the things of God. A place to begin is God’s word, but even there the psalmist declares his need for God’s help in the first step even to beholding the wondrous things out of His […]

A Time To Sit Still

June 24, 2024

We never really cherish the thought of being told to sit sill, but that is what we often need. Our minds are busy and most of us like to be engaged in doing something, especially when it comes to waiting upon God. Venture back in time and pick up the account in the book of […]

Though Dead, Yet They Speak

June 17, 2024

Over the years I have developed a tradition when asked to preach a funeral or memorial service of asking for the Bible of the deceased. I find it very helpful to take note of the things marked or underlined in the Bible to know something of their faith and hope and what they considered important. […]

Don’t Be Stiff-necked

June 10, 2024

Have you ever seen an infant refusing to do what mom and dad want? They will stiffen their bodies and their necks as if they could actually resist the will of the parent. Interesting how we do that with God. There is something that His word says we should do and we just refuse. On […]

The Benefits of Joy

June 3, 2024

I recently read an article describing the many benefits of experiencing joy in life. Obviously, there are benefits to your mental well-being. There are certainly physical benefits from joy since joy will decrease stress. There are benefits to the brain, heart, and a host of other places in the body that benefit from joy. Likewise, […]

Are you guarding your heart?

May 27, 2024

The heart is the seed of affections and really the focal point of all spiritual change. In fact, Jesus said that you can tell what is in the heart by what you see is important to a person, and what comes out of a person’s mouth is an indication of what is in the heart. […]

Hitting The Wall and What to Do

May 20, 2024

There’s a phenomenon known in the endurance world as “hitting the wall.” There are many explanations as to why this strange occurrence happens and despite the lack of knowing “why” exactly, it is real as I know from experience. I was running along in a marathon (26.2-mile race) and along about mile 23, I stopped […]
