Some things we need in our lives

There are many things needed in our lives in order to live. We need food and water, shelter and such. Most people spend the biggest part of their lives trying to provide these things for themselves and their families. There is nothing wrong with working to have such things as long as doing so does not become our only goal.

There will always be Sunday

Several years ago, I heard a sermon titled, "It's Friday, but Sunday's a coming." I don't remember everything about it, but I do remember where the idea came from.

Celebrate that Jesus is alive

Easter is later this year than usual. It is very rare for Easter to come on the last Sunday of April. We have to wait much longer than we usually do. But we wait with great anticipation. We know, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story."

Don't use excuses to not obey

"I am as good as they are."

Jesus will help fulfill destiny

When we think of why Jesus Christ came to earth more than 2,000 years ago, we might think of how he taught, healed or preached the good news of salvation. We might even think of how he lived a perfect life of example. All of these are important, but they are not the main reason he came.

Let your soul be regulated by Holy Spirit

It's that time of year when I am so glad I have a programmable thermostat in my home. That is one of the most remarkable gadgets I ever have installed.

Jesus proved it's possible to get back up

There are many obstacles we must overcome or maneuver around in our lives. Sometimes these hurdles seem like they're almost too much to handle and we feel like giving up altogether. Life can hit so hard that it knocks the wind right out of us.

Never give up, give in to Satan

When Peter penned the following words, he was being directed by the Holy Spirit to give a warning to Christians. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world" (1 Peter 5:8, 9). While those in the world may not care about this warning, the child of God should treat it seriously.

Those who trust will live forever

This week has been a time of reflection for me. Monday would have been my mom's birthday. Thursday marked the day she passed away. And today is the sixth anniversary of her funeral. Interestingly enough, this year those dates fell on the same days of the week as the final week of her life. I've thought a lot about Mom and life and eternity this week.

Let's remember what Easter is about

As we head into a very special time of the year for Christians, we must take the time to truly understand what Easter is all about.

Heaven's value never decreases

The other day I was talking to someone about what I paid for my house about 10 years ago, what it was worth a couple of years ago and what it is worth today. The value went up and then came crumbling down again. We have not been hit with devaluation of property nearly as bad as most communities in our country.

The Lord won't lead you astray

On Sunday evenings in our church, I have been preaching a series entitled, "Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe: Modern Christian Urban Myths." I got the idea from a book by the same title written by a pastor named Larry Osborne. It really has been a fun study, both for the church and for me.

Chose God over things of this world

Live life with a pure heart

We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related. There is a person who is never quite understood. There is a person who is often rejected on the basis of trust. A pure heart often leads the bearer to be alone, even among thousands.
