  • May we be filled by the spirit

     The Apostle Paul challenged the church in Ephesus to walk according to the Holy Spirit. This calling challenged believers to live in a manner that was controlled by the Holy Spirit instead of being under the control of the ways and influences of the world. In Ephesians 5:18 the Apostle Paul spoke to this truth when he penned, “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled by the Spirit.” In light of this passage, how can we be faithful in walking by the Spirit?

  • The Christian Story

    The word “Christian” appears three times in the New Testament (Acts 11:26, 26:28 and 1 Peter 4:16).  Some say the word was adopted by the followers of Christ and others say it was invented by their enemies as a term of reproach.  Most feel it was used to describe the followers of Christ because of the way they lived --- like a small Jesus or they showed the love and forgiveness that characterized Jesus.

We also modernized Kentucky’s outdated, uncompetitive tax code for the first time in years, broadening the base while lowering the income tax for all working Kentuckians to 5 percent.

  • The mania of WrestleMania

    WrestleMania was this past Sunday, which has been one of the premiere sporting events in my family.

    Since I married Danielle, we have been watching wrestling pay per views at her cousins house because he has the WWE channel, which shows all the WWE pay per views for free.

    However, my favorite thing about the wrestling pay per views is not the wrestling, it’s watching Danielle’s cousin’s son watching it. His son is eight-years-old and in the prime of his childhood. He gets excited with each match and has his favorite wrestlers.
