Love God

We must never forget that we were created to worship and love God. We are the creation – He is the creator. We are to serve Him. All the blessings that His word tells us about are there for us if we will follow Him. The world has the idea that man can do just about whatever he wants and God will still save him. God has never promised salvation to one who will not obey Him. "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father ...

God demands that His people pray

God is demanding His people to return to prayer! God had me to deliver a soul stirring, searching, shaking message on July 3 and had me to call an all night prayer from Sunday night, July 4-5.

Let us tend our own gardens first

Well, my driver's license is about to expire. That means that I will soon be five years older than I used to be. I thought about simply renewing it online, but I want a new picture. No, I'm not that vain. But since I last got a license I have had laser eye surgery. I no longer wear glasses, and my old picture has me in glasses. I don't want to have to explain that to an officer.

Children also need quantity time

I was disappointed recently to hear a professional athlete tell of his decision to sign a contract that would have him living some 15 hours away from his kids. He had an opportunity to sign with a team right in the same area where his kids live and could still make the millions of dollars that he will be making.

We must follow the Holy Spirit

"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come." (John 16:13 NIV)

Grow in wisdom with the Lord

I am sitting here typing away on the computer in my office at church. When I finish writing what I want to say to you, I will save the document, attach it to an e-mail and send it to the editor of the paper.

Take advantage of love Christ has for you

Do you understand that Jesus loves you? Yes you, you are important to God. Most likely you have sung the song "Jesus Loves Me," but have you ever taken it to heart that He loves you personally.

Thoughts of uncertainty

I was driving to the office the other day when out of the corner of my eye I saw a squirrel come out of the grass and dart right in front of my car. There was no time to brake and sad to say, the only nuts that that squirrel is eating is in squirrel heaven if there is such a place.

Cross is symbol of independence

If I would ask the average American what the symbol is for our freedom, I believe most people would say that it is our flag.

Happy Fourth and God bless

I have always considered myself to be a Patriot. I love my country, and I am grateful for all of the blessings God has bestowed upon us. But in the last five years I have become increasingly more aware of the reality of the sacrifices made by those in our armed forces so that the rest of us might enjoy the freedoms we have.

Freedom is in Jesus Christ

Our nation was built upon a belief in and a desire to worship God. Brave men and women took a stand for freedom, that, too, many seem like an insurmountable undertaking – to take on an entire nation in a battle for freedom.

Take a breather, enjoy life

In spite of their hectic schedules, a group of busy, local Christians have decided it's time to get away. On July 10-17, they will escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and spend a week in paradise.

Freedom comes at a cost

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?

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.
