  • Empty: Cross, Tomb, Life

    The greatest symbol of new life is found in an empty tomb. That first Easter when the women came early to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus, they found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. Upon that empty tomb rested the validity of Christianity.

    Imagination is a wonderful thing. Out of it we get a fairy that pays money for teeth and a rabbit that lays eggs. But this is all empty celebration. You don’t need a bunny or some eggs to get excited about Easter. Our celebration is in an empty tomb.

  • Overwhelming Evidence

    Have you ever watched or followed a trial? What would happen if a judge ignored all of the evidence and just decided the verdict and punishment based on their feelings and opinions? That sort of judge would be unfair and wicked, betraying the standard of justice for which they are purposed.

    What does the evidence of our life point to? Are our thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions more self-focused or God-focused? Unfortunately, the evidence of our lives points to the fact that we all treasure and love ourselves more than we love God.

  • God’s Will: Finding and Doing

    Nothing is more important for the believer’s life than knowing and doing God’s will. I want to call our attention to two passages of scripture that should assist in the quest of knowing and doing God’s will for our lives. The passages are Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalm 37:1-5, 23.

  • Being obedient with the Word

    Biblical engagement is critical for the personal development of the believer. It is impossible for a follower of Christ to be faithfully walking in the Lord if the individual does not know the ways of the Lord. Unfortunately, a recent survey indicated that only 14% of adults in our country read the Bible daily and that only another 14% read it several times a week. As followers of Christ, we are called to know the Word, live the Word, share the Word, and teach the Word. In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus declares:

  • Live Wisely

    Jesus made a most interesting statement in Luke 12:15 (NLT) when He said, “Real life is not measured by how much we own.” He made this assessment after being asked to help settle a family dispute on dividing a family estate. In response, Jesus gave a parable about a rich farmer. He dealt with greed and covetousness, and concluded by calling the farmer a “fool.” Why?

  • Stand in Awe

    By Jonathan Carl

    I love fireworks. I love how they capture my attention and overwhelm my senses with their spectacular rainbow starbursts. When fireworks light up the sky, I stop and marvel at their beauty and power.

  • Walking Tall for Jesus

    In 1964, Buford Pusser was elected sheriff of McNairy County, which is located on the Mississippi-Tennessee state line. He set about to clean up the corruption in his home county which he dearly loved. His mantra was “Walk Tall and carry a big stick.”

    A movie was made about the sheriff’s efforts in cleaning up his county. The movie was entitled, “Walking Tall.” This term stands for anyone who goes against the grain, who seeks to make a difference and goes against the tide of society.
