Christians are salt of the earth

I am excited about the role of Christians in today's world.

Never quit trying to live Christian life

The apostle Paul wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:13,14).

Golden Rule can be a powerful thing

There used to be a thing called "telephone etiquette" in our society. It seems no longer to exist.

God deserves prompt obedience

The other day my son and I were out in the boat fishing near St. Catherines Sound. We had taken along some frozen shrimp I had caught in a net earlier this month, and since I didn't want them to spoil I decided I needed to get rid of them.

You can overcome harsh words

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

Minister turns life around, helps others

The Rev. Johnny Fleming has only been in the ministry a short time, but he is certainly intent on spreading the word of God.

Learn to always put your trust in God

We are taught in God's word that faith is necessary to be pleasing to God. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Heb 11:6).

There's time to trust in His provisions

The other day I had written down several things I needed to do while I was in town. Since I was in a hurry, I scribbled the things down on a scrap piece of paper.

Something about the pageantry...

I have to make a confession. I love what has been called "the pageantry of college football." I manage to go to a couple of games of my favorite team every year.

God's intent is for you to be trustworthy

I'm attending a wedding today. It will be a rather odd thing for me, because I will have no responsibilities in the wedding. For obvious reasons, I perform most of the wedding ceremonies I attend.

Are you paying attention to your spiritual heart?

"How's your heart spiritually?" This question is even more serious than questions about our physical heart. For if the physical heart fails, the spiritual heart better be ready.

Here's a model for personal prayer

Many of you know that I like to pray while I am walking. Since I live way out in the country, I can walk with very little contact with traffic.

Lets keep working together

Today, I have three things to share with you: this week's message, a personal invitation and a "thank you" for your support.

Show clergy members you care

"We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves." (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 - ESV).

Rethinking snap judgments

I have a confession to make, and it concerns a news report I heard recently. As I was driving home I heard on the news that a pastor of one of the largest churches in American is being accused of a horrible crime.

The true meaning of Revelation

One of the most fascinating books in the Bible is Revelation. Many books have been written and movies produced in attempts to better understand the end times.

How to live a Christian life, part 1

How does one live the Christian life?

Actions speak louder than words

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."

Everyone can be adopted in God's family

The world is full of people wanting to know, "What is in it for me?" This attitude keeps many from ever checking out God's word and obeying the Gospel. They see no benefit coming their way, so why bother with religion?

What is in it for me? Eternal life with Father

The world is full of people wanting to know, "What is in it for me?" This attitude keeps many from ever checking out God's word and obeying the Gospel. They see no benefit coming their way, so why bother with religion?

What do we really need to fear?

Recently, there has been quite a bit of fear concerning the confirmed Ebola case on U.S. soil.

We should look back to go forward

I was moved recently after reading an article titled "Down Blige Road" in Richmond Hill Reflections magazine. As "transplanted" African-Americans here in Richmond Hill, it helped us understand and get more insight into the pasts of other African-Americans who lived in, worked in and built this community.

Don't wait until 'someday' to follow God

Life is but for a little while. James wrote, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away" (James 4:14). What a great reminder of life's brevity, as it can be seen many times during a year.

Gardening teaches to lean on God

As I usually do, earlier this year I planted a little vegetable garden. It's not too elaborate, but it gives me something to enjoy and provides us with a variety of wonderfully fresh things to eat.
