A Duty Or A Desire?

Open my eyes to see wonderful things in Your word. I am but a pilgrim here on earth; How I need a map-and Your commands are my chart and my guide. I long for your nstructions more than I can tell. Psalm 119: 18-20 Rote. Do you know what “rote” means? A fixed mechanical way Continue Reading…

A Private Conversation

“For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;” Hebrews 9:24 “To appear in the presence of God for us! For me! He is with God and He talks about me? Can Continue Reading…

What Did They Name You?

We can pick up on one negative thing that a person does and then “label him.” Did the people in your world do that? “You are awkward!” “You’re as slow as Christmas!” “You’re a dunce!” “You’ll never be pretty.” “You are totally inept!” “Don’t smile-you don’t have pretty teeth.” We’ve done that to Thomas, the Continue Reading…

What is He saying to me?

Psalm 73:23 ?24(a) Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel. . .. (TLB) “Yet I am always with You;” Do I really believe this? Do I walk in this? Am I consciously aware that everywhere I go I am in His presence–in the Continue Reading…

Looking Beyond The “Pot-hole”

I’m strictly an “around the block” bicycler. I keep telling myself that I’m going to practice “go around the block” a lot and then head for a New England bike tour. I need to quit procrastinating and do what I’ve told myself to do. The block gets bigger and bigger! I remember one time when Continue Reading…

The View is Spectacular.

I watched in admiration as the two magnificent craft slid down out of the cold, winter sky. They held formation perfectly, their wing tips perilously close as they lined up on the final leg of their approach. The lead flyer and his wingman flared out together, tilting their noses upward with full flaps and landing Continue Reading…

Stop and Enjoy My Love

As I walked out of the house this morning, I noticed a tiny, yellow flower growing out of the crack in our driveway. I have to admit that my first thought went something like this: “How in the world did it sprout up in the middle of my concrete driveway? It’s gotta be a weed Continue Reading…

It All Belongs to God

I just heard a great sermon illustration that has special meaning for how we, as a ministry interact with you. If you’ve already heard it, just bear with me as I put a different spin on it. A preacher goes to a deacon and gives him a 100-dollar bill telling him to hold it until Continue Reading…

Anger: A Ruthless Killer

Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord . But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Continue Reading…

An Impressive Label

We proudly label ourselves: A New Testament Church. Why? Well, we know there’s a lot of difference between the Old Testament gatherings and the New Testament gatherings. For example: We have an entirely different relationship with the Lord. He “holds our hand” in the Old Testament. He comes to “live within us” in the New Continue Reading…
