Consider David

Consider David, one of the greatest of all Bible characters.  A man after God’s own heart, and yet he committed great sin.  But after experiencing the chastening hand of his loving, faithful God and being confronted by Nathan the prophet, he repents and experiences God’s forgiveness and cleansing.  2 Samuel [...]

There is Joy in Serving Jesus

Many times periods of success in a believer’s life are followed by seasons of discouragement.  The apostle Paul understood and experienced this.  What is The Lord’s remedy for times like this?  I Corinthians 15:58 gives us the answer; “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the [...]

The Best Choice

In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus had come into the village where Martha lived and was warmly welcomed into her home.  Martha was no doubt thrilled to have Jesus in her home and she immediately became preoccupied with making preparations to serve Him.  Mary, Martha’s sister chose to sit at Jesus feet [...]

What Is Important

What is really important in life?  Is it all the things that we work so hard to accumulate? Is it nice clothes, or fancy homes and cars? Is it traveling to exotic vacation resorts? Is it rank or prestige, success or relationships? There is nothing inherently wrong with any of [...]

A Magnificent Way To Live

God Is Sovereign

With everything that’s going on in the world it is easy to become anxious and angry, but God’s Word can bring real calm to the soul.  Psalm 37 has become a delight to me as I have been memorizing it.  From the commentary on this particular psalm in the Life [...]

Walk In His Ways

2009 brought change in all of our lives and in our church body.  May we never forget all God’s blessings as we look back.  But what does God desire of us, and yes, expect of us as we move forward into a New Year?  “To fear the Lord thy God, [...]

And It Came To Pass

Christmas time brings our mind to the Christmas story as told in Luke 2.  “And it came to pass in those days,”. . .  God, the divine controller of the universe, moved in Caesar Augustus’s heart to register the whole world for taxing purposes.  God had already said that the [...]
