  • Growth that pleases our Father

     Once we are born again into the family of God, He desires that we grow spiritually. II Peter 3:18 tells us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

    Jesus pleased God because of His growth. Luke 2:52 tells us, “He increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” No wonder God said in Matthew 3:17, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

  • Depression - Part 3

    Anxiety and depression affect over 40 million adults in the United States annually, almost 20 percent of our total population. Recently, I got to sit down with Savannah Clemons, a professional counselor, and talk with her through the subject of depression. Here are some excerpts from our discussion:

    Is it wrong to take psychotropic medicines like antidepressants?

  • Soldiers of Christ

    Since 1917 when it was written, many men in the army have sung, “You’re in the army now. You’ll never get rich by digging a ditch. You’re in the army now.”

    Even longer than that, believers --- men, women, boys and girls --- have sung, “We’re in the Lord’s army.” The Apostle Paul told the Ephesians in 6:10-20 they were soldiers of Christ, and that they were to “be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might.”

  • Set Your Sights on Jesus

    As a child, I recall teachers and other influential individuals challenging me to set my sights on a goal in the future and strive for that goal. They spoke of the importance of setting the sights to remain focused and centered while progressing toward a goal. Such a mentality guards against the threat of distraction or derailment on the journey.

  • Responding in Love

    The Apostle Paul has a pastor’s heart, which is borne out in his writings. Consider his letter to the church at Philippi, a church he dearly loved. He tells them they are in his mind, in his heart and in his prayers (Philippians 1:3-11).

    The church at Philippi had been founded by Paul on his second missionary journey. The work was small at first among a few women by the river side. Lydia, a seller of purple, was his first convert, and she was soon joined by the Philippian jailer and his family (Acts 16:12-40).
