And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Yoked With Christ?

Recently the Lord made Matthew 11:28-30 a special blessing to me. Jesus Christ is inviting those who are weary and heavy laden (loaded down with weights) to come to Him for rest. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take [...]

The future is as bright as the promises of God!

Thoughts about the future have been on many people’s minds lately with the state of affairs in our world.  I am no exception, and when I was working in the kitchen recently getting ready for the family to come in for Thanksgiving I began to think about the future.  Immediately [...]

Our Mission is Clear!

Luke 24:36-49 tells us that when Christ appeared before His followers after His resurrection, His purpose was threefold:  [1] He [Christ] wanted them know that He had finished His mission [to die on the Cross to pay their sin debt and ours] and that He was alive and real; not [...]

Choose Gratitude

Do you have an attitude of gratitude?   We have so much to be thankful for, and yet we so often choose to focus our thoughts on anything negative that presents itself in our lives.  In fact, if we’re honest, sometimes we go looking for it!  Shame on us!  It’s a [...]

Be Still and Know

Have you ever been at your “wit’s end”?  I think we have all been there or at least expressed a nearness of that destination!  That very expression is used in Psalm 107:27 to describe a group of storm-tossed, troubled people whose soul melts within them.  “They reel to and fro, [...]

Much Fruit?

Many little clover seeds fell into the ground of one of the fields that I am privileged to use.  There they died, and as a result, much clover grew back.  Because of that, we were able to harvest a plentiful crop of clover hay [mixed with some other grasses].  Death [...]

Kyle Kayton Testimony

When I was 10 years old my parents divorced.  As long as I could remember I’d attended a Methodist church, and had heard of Jesus, but didn’t know that I needed to accept Him personally to pay for my sins.  After my parents split, I started attending Heritage Baptist Church where the [...]

Bring Spring Into Your Soul

Spring brings an excitement of freshness, new life, warmth, activity.  We can get outside and enjoy God’s creation in ways we can’t when it’s cold and everything seems dead. Are you enjoying the spiritual part of your life, or does it seem cold and dead like the winter?  It is [...]

Are you Growing?

GMBC’s theme verse for 2012 is 2 Peter 3:18, “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever.”  The word ‘grow’ means ‘to be continually growing’.  Believers are challenged to grow in ‘grace’ which is [...]

Praise God

As I look back at this year that seems to have just flown by and look ahead to the coming year just waiting around the corner, I praise God for who He is, what He has done, and what He has in store for us in 2012. Ephesians 3:20 says, [...]
