Let the sun (Son) shine in

The place where I live has a whole bunch of trees in the yard. When we first moved in we had satellite television installed but a couple of years ago the experts said that we could no longer get a signal because of too many tree branches in the way (it's a miracle that we ever did receive a signal). The trees have also caused some problems. I planted some small citrus trees and some blueberry bushes but am having problems getting them to grow because of one key problem; the sun cannot get through. I have taken out ...

Give thanks for the grit of life

When I was younger we used to occasionally vacation in Maine. One of my favorite destinations was a coastline beach around Bar Harbor.

Get to heaven from here

Knowledge is defined as awareness of facts, truths, or principles. In order to gain knowledge about the gospel of Christ we must be taught about Him, and what He has done for us. Isaiah 53 shows us what Christ has done for us. From that we can know He gave Himself to die for us.

All need to believe God

As Jesus was concluding what has become known as the "Sermon on the Mount", He said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matt. 6:33, 34). In this we are told to put God first in our lives, and not to concentrate all our being on the physical things of this life. Yet often we see people making money and ...

The value of human life

One of the greatest joys I have as a pastor is to see a new baby with its mother in the hospital. I often visit the hospital, and that can be a difficult task. Most people who are in the hospital are either sick or in pain. But the birth of a baby (while a painful process) is always a joyful moment.

Life is like a puff of smoke

The Bible tells us that life is like a puff of smoke; here today but then gone tomorrow. Even if we would live to be 100 years old, that is still a short time compared to eternity.

Real treasurers

Movies and TV shows in the 1960's and 1970's sometimes depicted pirates looking for buried treasure. Little boys often dreamed of being on a pirate ship (perhaps even being in charge). The idea of finding that buried treasure was always appealing.

Being thankful for the heat

If you know me very well at all, you know that I hate cold weather; my wife goes so far as to say I am a baby about it. So you might figure out that I have not been a happy camper this week. One of these past few mornings as I ventured out in the sub freezing air and got into my heated truck I realized how fortunate I was. I also thought about the warm house I had just slept in. There are many in the world who live in places where it gets much colder than here ...

Keeping God in the proper place

Last week we began discussing keeping God in the proper place. We saw that we must not let things become our God, yet we must provide things for our families. In doing this God must be the center of our lives.

Finding strength on bad days

I had a really bad day earlier this month. I won't go into any details, but it involved two broken pieces of machinery (one of them brand new and the other borrowed from my dad) as well as tearing down a section of chain link fence.

Everyone has an impact, make yours positive

Many of you I'm sure have seen the movie, "It's a wonderful life," where the main character makes the statement, "I wish I'd never been born!" An angel allows him to see what the world around him would be like if indeed he had never been born. In his case he had been such a positive influence to those around him that the world was a better place because he was born.

Work hard for the Lord

Back in the summers of my college days, I worked for a builder. For the most part, I kept the skilled laborers (carpenters and brick layers) supplied with materials. Then, there was the biggest mistake I made during my first summer.
