• Give Thanks

    Complaining makes us miserable, while a positive and thankful person is a great witness in this world.

    Our light shines for the Lord when we are thankful. The Apostle Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18,”Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  This is a good scripture for us at Thanksgiving.

    Let me share three simple thoughts about thanksgiving:  We have it so good, we enjoy it so much and we express it so little.

  • Annual psalm of thanksgiving

    Dear God,

    It’s that time of year when I sit down to compose my annual psalm of thanksgiving. This will be my 16th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithfulness to me.

    This past year has been difficult in so many ways. At times I’ve felt like a dog’s chew toy, eaten up and slobbered on. I’ve felt pulled and pushed, stretched and torn.

  • Love one another

    Many things are influencing our culture today, but probably none more than a lack of love shown by believers. What would it be like if those who claim to be redeemed and changed by the power of God began to live their lives in line with the teachings and desires of Christ?

    The great commandment is “Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength and your neighbor as yourself.” Over a dozen times in the New Testament we are told to “Love one another”. The life of the believer is to be characterized by love.

  • God's Love and Plan

    Do I really believe that God loves me and has a plan for me?  Most would probably answer in the affirmative. Let’s separate the two thoughts and see what answers we find.

    How do we know God loves us?  God’s Word is our source for this answer.  His Word declares in Jeremiah 31:3, “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.  With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself.”  Now if God says it, that settles it.  He does not say what He does not mean and He does not go back on His Word.

  • The World’s Greatest Need

    “What the world needs now is love.”  This song was sung for the first time in 1965.  The world’s need has not changed.  Look at what is happening in our land today.  Have you ever seen so much hatred being expressed!

  • Crossover moment, becoming a Christian

    I love a good conversion story. The moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.

    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.
