• 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.”

  • Pray for our schools


    On Sunday, August 5, I had the privilege of watching people of all ages from many of our community churches come and pray together in our county schools. Didn’t get to join us? Checkout “LaRue County Churches” on Facebook to see what happened.

    This week as school goes back, let’s pray for our school system to be a bright light of God’s love in the midst of a dark world. Here are 10 tips on how to pray for our schools.

  • God’s Amazing Love

    Allow me to begin where I ended in my last devotion with John 3:16.  If all the Bible were destroyed and only John 3:16 remained there would be enough there to save the world.  But if the world refuses to believe there is enough in that verse to condemn the world.

    John 3:16 is all that a man needs to know. Salvation is so simple that children believe and become a child of God.  But the verse is so profound that philosophers have been confounded by its magnitude.  It is limitless, and cannot be exhausted.

  • Distracted By the Storms

    Recently, storms rolled through LaRue County. The damage and effects of the storm varied from place to place. Nonetheless, people felt the impact during the storm as the wind blew, the rain pounded, the lightning flashed, and the thunder rolled. Storms often grab our attention and cause us to seek safety and even may distract us from a task that we are about. In the same way, our spiritual walk with Christ often becomes distracted by storms in life.

  • An Unpopular Subject

    Sin has ruined lives since the beginning of time.  We see the results of sin in the Bible and ancient history to the present day.  The devil doesn’t want us to talk about it.  He wants to deceive, lie about, ruin and damn souls.  The result of his work is seen daily.

  • Missions reflections

    As I write this I have just returned from a mission trip to Ghana, West Africa.  Have you ever had the joy of a missions trip? Or been able to travel to serve in an impoverished area?  Every time I get the joy of serving the Lord on mission God teaches me and reminds me of so many life-transforming truths.  Here are a few of the ways Jesus grew in me during my time in Ghana.

  • Somebody cares

    King David was so much like us --- always falling down, getting up and reaching out to the God he loved and sought to serve.  Some days he was a saint and some days he was a sinner.  At times he was so close to God he could write Psalm 23.  At other times he was so forgetful of God that he could break at least 4 commandments.  We see him in great despair and then on the mountain.
