  • Christ's birth and life is the world's greatest inspiration

    Advent is when we focus our attention upon the experience of God becoming a baby. The Infinite became flesh to live among us and one day die on the cross for the sin of the world. Who can comprehend it? It is the world’s greatest mystery.

    As we approach Christmas, I want to join the writer of Hebrews in challenging us to “look upon Jesus” (Hebrews 12:1-2). There is no one like him. No one comes even close to Jesus.

  • Churches assist Red Cross

    In an effort to offer aid to those affected by disaster, volunteers and Women’s Missionary Union groups recently prepared 300 comfort kits for the American Red Cross.

    “There was a real need for the kits,” said Clara Mae Druen, the Red Cross shelter coordinator in LaRue County. “This is something we give to those who have been affected by a disaster — whether it’s a house fire, a flood or a tornado. It’s an immediate response to an immediate need.”

  • Give thanks for everything - always

    “In everything give thanks” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

    Gratitude works like a vaccine; it keeps you from getting infected with a spirit of “grumpiness.” It’s the anti-toxin that counteracts the poisonous affects of ingratitude.

    Have you noticed that we live in a thankless society? Paul said, “In the last days . people will be … ungrateful” II Timothy 3:1-2.

  • Thanksgiving was established to express gratitude to God

    What do you think of when you think of Thanksgiving? Is it eating, football, shopping on Black Friday or some other item?

    Thanksgiving is not just food, football and family. For God’s people, every day ought to be Thanksgiving Day.

    Thanksgiving Day is a distinctive holiday. It does not commemorate a battle or anyone’s birthday. It is simply a day set aside to express our gratitude to God.

  • We’re in the race of a lifetime

    A man entered the New York Marathon and found that he was immediately the last runner. The guy ahead of him started making fun by saying things like, “How does it feel to be last?” Well, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and the last runner said, “Do you really want to know?” And he dropped out of the race.

    Where are you in the race of life? The Bible describes life among other things to be a race. Life is more of a marathon than a 100-yard dash. We all find ourselves at different points along the race.
