  • Hear and heed what he says

    The human voice is a wonderful thing. Man is the only animal to which God gave the gift of speech. With his voice man is able to say “I love you,” sing praises to God, make his wishes known, express appreciation, pray to God and preach the unsearchable riches of God.

    It would have been wonderful to have lived on the earth when Jesus was here and have heard his voice. Surely it was rich, full and vibrant. But there is something more important than the sound of the voice and it is what you say with that voice.

  • People are more important than wealth

    Recently it was my honor to bring the first graduation address for the Leitchfield Christian Academy, which was founded during my ministry there. My message began with some remarks from the late Sir Winston Churchill made some years ago at a Yale commencement where he followed a Yale alumnus who was receiving an honorary degree. The alumnus had elaborated extensively about the university with each letter of “YALE” a point in his speech.

  • Don’t be ‘too important’ for one of God’s miracles

    “It’s not right to take bread … and throw it to dogs.” Matthew 15:26

    Desperation puts us in situations where we’ve nothing to lose. When our pain level gets high enough, we’ll do whatever it takes to find relief.

  • Volunteers building church in days

    On Saturday, 200 volunteers arrived at the building site of Gospel of Grace Baptist Church on Old E’town Road. A flurry of activity followed as the mission group constructed the new building from the basement up – at no charge to the church.

    By Thursday, the church plans to have its first service in the new building at 7 p.m., preceded by a meal at 6 p.m.

  • Christian Writers Conference will be June 19-20 in E’town

  • Soar, run, walk for God

    They that wait upon the Lord shall run, and not be weary and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31.

  • Methodist women hold ‘Blanket of Praise’ celebration

    As Hodgenville United Methodist Church filled with visitors, hundreds of brightly colored baby quilts were draped over every available surface last Saturday in anticipation of this year’s Blanket of Praise celebration.

    Blanket of Praise is a project of the Elizabethtown District United Methodist Women, through which volunteers make and donate baby quilts to be given to infants in need.

  • Set your priorities on God’s level

    Getting to know God in a personal way should be our greatest priority in life. If we plan to spend eternity with him, then it would seem like a good thing to get to know him now. And it may be later than you think.

    We are here today and gone tomorrow. Realizing how quickly life goes by is a good priority to have. James said our life is like a vapor (4:14). We must then have our priorities right. We only get one chance at life on this earth. The poet said, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past.”

  • Remember loved ones on Memorial Day

    Recently we received an e-mail titled, “Preparing for Memorial Day,” which was a series of thought-provoking serious cartoons about this event. 

    One depicted a young boy giving thanks at a meal with the caption, “Thanksgiving is a day when we pause to give thanks for the things we have; Memorial Day is a day when we pause to give thanks for the people who fought for the things we have.”

  • Never underestimate value or influence of a mother

    “Her children … call her blessed; her husband also … praise her.” Proverbs 31:28

    A man who felt neglected because his wife was spending so much time with the kids, decided to make a change. Storming into the house he announced, “As the man of this house, my word is law. From now on I expect you to prepare gourmet meals every night, run my bath, and leave out my clothes. Then afterwards, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?” Quietly his wife replied, “The funeral director.”
