I was reading today about the time a Jewish leader came to Jesus asking Him to do something for him.

A steady diet of the word of God

The Apostle Peter wrote, "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby" (I Peter 2:2).

America's birthday

Yesterday was the 232nd birthday of our great country. I was a history major in college, and I focused particularly on American history. But I still have to admit something. It boggles my mind to consider the imagination and thoughtfulness it took to develop the type of government we have. There were truly a number of great leaders at work in those days.

Our freedom did not come free

This 4th of July we celebrate the freedom we have here in America. We as Americans still enjoy freedoms not experienced and only dreamed of by most of the world's population.

Gods way, part 4: we will follow

As we have been looking at following "God's Way," we have seen that God's way is best, but will we follow "God's Way?"

God's way, part 3: One who almost failed

For the past few weeks we have been discussing "God's Way." When you talk to people about religion many times the words you here are, "Well I think." Before you say this you might want to see what God has to say about mans thoughts compared to His. From the beginning of time we see that someone has always wanted to change what God says. In the garden of Eden God had instructed man not to partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil less they die (Gen. 3:3). When Satan approached Eve he told ...

Asking for help

A few months ago our church entered into a relationship with another church in our state. They became our "mentoring" church. Hebron Baptist Church in Dacula is very large church located about 35 miles northeast of Atlanta. God has blessed their ministry in amazing ways over the last 30 years. And they have chosen to seek to pass those blessings along to other churches.

Wanting to go home

This past week I took a vacation with my wife and two of my grand kids. On the way to our destination I heard time and time again, "When are we going to get there?" After over a week being away I think the kids began to get a little homesick. On the way back I heard over and over again, 'When are we going to get home?"

In times of uncertainties, have faith

Just ask the average Joe on the street about the economy and the future and it won't take long to realize that people are full of uncertainties. We don't know who will be our next president and how it will effect our country and the world as well. We don't know how high gas prices will go or when someone is going to do something about them.

Gods way in caring for others (part 2)

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matt. 22:36-40). The occasion of the preceding discourse was a time when some of the Pharisees seeing Jesus quiet their adversaries the Sadducees, sought to tempt our Lord. Trying to see just how ...

Try on an attitude of gratitude today

It is the first day of summer. That's not as big of a deal here as it has been in other places I have lived. After all, we have been enjoying summer type weather for a few weeks now. But I have to tell you this. When I lived in Michigan we gave thanks when the first day of summer rolled around. Sometimes we were still wearing light jackets. But we were grateful for the change.

Wedding season

The marrying season has arrived. It seems like June is the month for weddings. You may be attending one today. My family is. And we had one last week, too. Neither one was at our church, but rather both were for family members in other places.

No matter what happens, we win

From the chatter both nationally as well as locally I perceive that the outlook for our economy is bleak if not depressing. Gas prices have soared to almost $4 per gallon which effects the price of everything else. Housing foreclosures are at an all-time high and for the first time since the great depression have housing and property values dropped nation wide. We are at war in Iraq and Afghanistan with the threat from terrorism lurking at our door from every side. If we look at our situation from strictly a secular and temporary position we could easily get depressed ...

The battle continues

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever (1 John 2:15-17).

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.

'Religious' objections to vaccinations? There really aren't any

In the national debate over immunizing children, much has been said about "religious objections" to vaccines claimed by parents. Finding a religion whose tenets object to the practice, however, is difficult.

How to overcome past mistakes

Jay Gatsby, the main character of the literary classic “The Great Gatsby," is obsessed with the past. He longs for days when he was with the lovable Daisy Buchanan. He uses this desire as fuel to find success and wealth, hoping that he could win back Daisy. This desire almost acts like a poison, leading him down a path that eventually leads him to his death.

The Lord really does know best

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the Earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." - 2 Peter 3:9-10
