Memorial Day

“Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you” (Deuteronomy 32:7). I have had the privilege of being involved in many significant parts of peoples lives through the years as a pastor, whether in the bonds of matrimony…

Ruts, Rhythms, Routines, and Rest

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the…

Remember Jesus Christ

“Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound” (2 Timothy 2:8-9).      One day, I was probably eight or nine years old at the time, my mother sealed…

Charity

“It [love] does not insist on its own way…” (1 Cor. 13:5).     I love how the King James renders this verse: “Charity seeketh not her own.” Rightly, we understand charity as aiding someone without thought of reward or recognition. Well, except for the necessary tax deductions, and perhaps the name in the annual…

Easter Monday

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his…

One Little Word

“Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). Perhaps you remember coming upon your young child, candy wrappers strewn on the floor, and chocolate smudges covering…

A Special Day

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one…

More Grace

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without…

Sound Doctrine

“But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1). We have spent a considerable amount of time looking at false teaching and teachers, and how we are to deal with them in the church. But one of the most significant things, and one that we too often neglect, is being sound in…

A Fruitful Life

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” (Gal. 5:22). We will come to the conclusion of our Mission Festival this Sunday. I hope you will be able to join us for our banquet beginning at 5:00 p.m. We will…
