Make it a year of beginnings

We officially have made it into a new year - 2014. For many, the old year, 2013, was not so good a year with many of life's challenges.

It's a good time to be holy

"Baby, it's cold outside!" Now, if the forecasters are correct, that may not be the case by the time you are reading this. But on the day I am writing, it definitely is cold.

God's word must be followed to the letter

The Bible is God's word. Not everyone wants to follow what it says, but it still is God's word.

God can be trusted with anything

Another new year has come.

Resolve to put God in your life

The new year has begun and it is a great time to change your life for the better. The New Year's resolutions may not have lasted very long or may soon be only a memory. The best way to have a great year and life is to put God in your life, in the proper place.

Finding Christ in the season

During this season, I'd like to encourage each of us to find Christ in Christmas.

Get started on the right foot

Have you ever wished you could go back and do things differently? Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and make different decisions that took you to places that you would rather not be?

Slow down and listen to the Lord

You can admit it. At the end of the day, when you see all of the wrapping paper on the floor, and all of the gifts have been opened (and some are already broken), you have at some point thought or said, "Is that all?"

The reality of the passing years

As this year winds to an end, it is gives each person time to look back not only on the past year but their entire lives. To the young, it seems that life will last forever, but to those who are older, the fact that life will not last forever becomes more apparent with each passing year. In fact the years seem to be rushing by, heading to eternity.

The coming of peace through Jesus

This time of year, Christians celebrate the coming to Earth of a savior - Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Christmas is a good time for the gospel

We are only a few days away from Christmas Day. I have to admit a couple of things to you. I love the Christmas season, and everything about it. Even as I think about the empty chairs and dinner table, and still am enamored by the lights, trees, decorations, music and pageantry of it all.

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.

Which way will you go with eternity on line?

Perhaps one of the greatest questions asked by a Bible character was the one asked by Elijah the prophet.

Our past life is behind us, thanks to God

A couple of months ago, I went to have surgery. In that process, I had to look at my medical records to make sure they were correct, including medicines I had taken and previous surgeries.

Show your pastor love, appreciation

October is Clergy Appreciation Month, that time of year to show pastors just how much they are appreciated.

Embrace the diversity God gave us

Fall started this week. Can you feel it in the crisp and cool mornings and evenings?

Something God does not want us to love

John reveals to all that there is a battle being fought every day. It is a battle that involves everyone on the face of the Earth.
