  • “Moving on Up”

    Some years ago a weekly TV program had a theme song about “Moving on up.” This particular family were moving up the social ladder among other things.

    “Moving on up” has been a catchy theme for many groups. We have had some groups in the church such as the Girls Auxiliary and the Royal Ambassadors where individuals would pass steps in their advancement. The Boy Scouts and the Masons would move up in progress. Other groups could be cited.

  • How to thank a veteran

    Gratitude. When we thank someone it is important not to thank them merely with our words or a temporary response. The most significant act of gratitude is one that demonstrates significant life change. So as we consider the sacrifices and selflessness of our veterans and their families, may we live our lives with a purpose greater than ourselves. May we live our lives more fervently for our Creator Jesus.

    Mark 12:30 “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

  • A Beautiful Garden Home

    My wife and I have been able to visit some beautiful gardens. Butchart Gardens in British Columbia would probably be my favorite, but Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama would be a close second. Some of the English gardens are quite different and the Schonbrunn Palace gardens in Vienna are nice.

    Recently, I was preparing a message that dealt with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and was reading Warren Weirsbe Bible Commentary. Having been able to visit the garden in the 70s made my reading more meaningful. There was a statement made in Luke 21:37 that caught my attention.

  • Not Mere Leaves

    A couple of years ago I planted squash in my garden. The squash plant itself grew and majored into a large plant with nice deep greenery. The plants appeared to be healthy and ready to produce a great number of squash. Unfortunately, though the leaves seemed perfect and beautiful, the plants would not produce fruit. As a result, the plants existed for no purpose other than to set off an external appearance.

    Anniversary and Revival

  • On Mission

    On occasion I’ve met people who question the need to go out on mission trips when there is plenty of “need” here at home. How would you respond to such a statement? Why should we be on mission, crossing geographical, linguistic, and cultural boundaries to talk about and show the love of Jesus?

    Here are five reasons to be on mission for Jesus:

  • Daily Foot Washing Needed

    God is no respector of persons. He can and will use any of us in His service, but to achieve our highest usefulness our lives must be clean.

    The Apostle Paul taught this truth through a simple illustration in 2 Timothy 2:20-21 about dishes used for a meal. They were different kinds of dishes, but one thing necessary for their use was they had to be clean (Hebrews 10:22, Matthew 6:17). It is not the size, shape, color, nor what the dish is made of. The most important thing of the dish set before you is it must be clean.
