• One for the Books

    How does it go?  “Americans love baseball, Chevrolet, and apple pie.”  I’ve had my share of apple pie and my first car was a ‘49 Chevrolet. 

    I have loved baseball as far back as I can remember.  When I was a youth living on a farm in Georgia, the men and boys of the community would gather in someone’s pasture on Sunday afternoon, divide into two teams and play baseball.  Those unable to play would umpire, coach or be spectators.

  • The Four People to Reach

    Luke 4:18–19 (ESV) “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

  • Rough Days

    Ever have a day that just starts out rough? Or a day that gets tougher and tougher, frustrating you without fail? How about those weeks that never seem to end?

    Although we can all feel alone in those hard moments and seasons, we have all been there. Here are a few reminders from God to prepare us for what is ahead today, tomorrow, and into the future. May we thank our Heavenly Father for His amazing patience, wisdom, and love to carry and guide us forward.

  • Are You Confused?

    There is a great ignorance of spiritual matters today.  By ignorance I mean a lack of knowledge in a particular area --- presently I speak of the spiritual. 

    Paul in Romans 10:1-4 is concerned with Israel’s lack of knowledge about the correct way to God.  Unaware of the correct way, they were trying to establish their own way -- by works and keeping the law handed down through Moses and the prophets.

  • Standing tall in the midst of the shipwreck

    Shipwrecks occur in life. Often the shipwreck happens when we set sail on our own path and refuse to listen to the leading of the Lord in our life. Often, in the midst of the shipwreck we become disheartened, frustrated, and feel defeated. But the Bible encourages us to engage the shipwreck in life much like the Apostle Paul dealt with the shipwreck in Acts 27.

  • The Game of Life

    The Apostle Paul uses images from the athletic field to convey spiritual truth.  You envision a foot race when it states in Hebrews 12:1 “let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” and you see two wrestlers when it mentions that Christians wrestle “against flesh and blood.”  It has been jokingly said baseball was mentioned in Genesis 1:1 “in the big inning,” and when it says, Rebekah went to the well with a “pitcher.”
