  • COLUMN: Find satisfaction in the midst of discontent

     “More.”

    This is a small word, but it summarizes the hopes and obsessions of many Americans. More money, more success. More of this and more of that.

    Many live for “more.” Our next raise, our next house. They search, but never seem to find, and most are unhappy in their search.

  • COLUMN: Three words for our Christian lives

     Three words cover the Christian life from beginning to end – salvation, separation and sanctification. When a person is saved the Christian life begins.  God wants to set the new Christian apart for his service. Finally, our Christian experience ends in heaven.

  • COLUMN: Our God is always there

    It should bring great comfort to know that God is always there ready and eager to help his children. While we live in a fear-filled world, remember that Jesus said to his followers, “I am with you to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

    Men are afraid of life, death and judgment. Many are concerned with the loss of job, money, health, friends, old age, poverty, loneliness or a thousand and one other things. Fear haunts many individuals.

  • COLUMN: God's will cannot be shaken

     The people of Nappa, California, recently would have agreed with the lyrics of Jerry Lee Lewis’s “A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.” Not only in Nappa, but around the world, there is a lot of shaking going on. Things are very unsettled.

    The things built by men will one day fall – cities, governments, institutions, organizations. Nothing built by man will last forever. 

    The writer of Hebrews says there are things that cannot be shaken. Why is this true? These things are of God and are unshakable.

  • A new walk for a new man

    When you accept the grace of God by faith, trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross for your sin, you become a child of God.

    Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature … all things have become new.”

    For the new Christian a metamorphose takes place like the caterpillar being transformed into a butterfly. Spiritually, we are a new person in Christ.

  • COLUMN: Time changes as man ages

    What Happened to Time?
    When as a child I laughed and wept, time crept.
    When as a youth I dreamed and talked, time walked.
    When I became a full-grown man, time ran.
    And later, as older I grew, time flew.
    Soon I shall find, while traveling on, time gone!
    Author unknown

    Have you noticed how time has changed?   

  • Local church goes beyond their borders to spread the word

    One-thousand six-hundred fifty-two: the number of miles between Hodgenville and San Pedro De Macoris, Dominican Republic. It’s the same number of miles a group from a local church traveled to do what they felt they were being called to do.
    First Baptist Church in Hodgenville has been working in the San Pedro area since a trip there in March yielded favorable results. According to Senior Pastor Paul Richey, the whole thing came about because of a storybook.
