  • Share the good news with others

    A young paralyzed boy had surgery and after some weeks of therapy was able to walk. As he was being dismissed from the hospital, he said to his surgeon, “Doctor, as long as there is a tongue in my body, ain’t nobody going to hear the last of what you did for me.”

    Can you identify with that young boy? When you think of what Jesus Christ has done for you, can you stop sharing the good news with others? Every time you think of what he has done, don’t you want to tell others? 

  • Worrying is a waste of time

    “Don’t worry about anything.” Philippians 4:6

    Forty percent of what we worry about never happens. Thirty percent already has happened. Twelve percent focuses on opinions or situations we can’t change. Ten percent on our health, which only worsens it. Eight percent concerns real problems we can’t influence. Think – 92 percent of our worries are needless.

    Worry comes from a Greek word meaning “to divide the mind.” Anxiety splits us right down the middle.

  • America’s foundation was built on the word of God

    If anything is to last it must have a good foundation, be it a building, organization, marriage or whatever. I submit to you that America was founded upon such a firm foundation influenced by Christianity and it will continue so long as it does not seek other building stones.

    There is evidence today that some of our foundation stones of the past are crumbling because of inattention. Students of history see a parallel between the late and great Roman Empire and the America of today. Some would say that America is following in Rome’s footsteps.

  • Faith can control our fears

    Why do we have fear? One may say that the devil is behind it all. The devil does not want us to have happiness and peace. Adam’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden caused him to fear when he heard God’s voice calling to him. He had disobeyed God and knew he was not ready to face him.

  • Trail Ride for Christ is this weekend

  • Moses overcame many trials

    “Who am I that I should go?” Exodus 3:11

    Your life story is written in risks – the ones taken and the ones avoided. Look at Moses. Do you think we’d even remember his name today if he hadn’t stepped out of the safe zone? Look what he overcame:

  • The world wants to know if Christianity really works

    Does Christianity work? That is the question of an unbelieving world. When the chips are down, when the heat is on and when the pressure mounts – will Christianity stand the test? Does faith in God make a difference?
