January 28, 2020 – A Covey of Quail

January 28, 2020 – A Covey of Quail

At times all our finger-pointing and bickering ends up doing us all in and nothing is accomplished. If we find ourselves constantly amidst controversy and strife, we need to take a good hard look at ourselves. What are we really fighting over? How is God being glorified?

January 21, 2020 – The Struggle in the Cocoon

As believers, we know that life is made up of a series of struggles and challenges, all of which help us develop character, patience, and obedience. So, if we know struggles are essential to spiritual maturity, why do we do everything we can to avoid pain? And why do we try to rob others of the opportunity to grow by “rescuing” them?

January 14, 2020 – “Are You Jesus?”

That’s our destiny and our charge, is it not? To be so much like Jesus that people cannot tell the difference as we live and interact with a world that is blind to His love, life, and grace… If we claim to know Him, we should live, walk, and act as He would. Knowing Him is so much more than simply quoting scripture and going to church. It’s living the Word as life unfolds day to day.

January 7, 2020 – Words to Live By

Many of these disheartened people allow anxiety and uncertainty to overwhelm them. For those of us who know God and trust Him, no matter how unstable our environment is or the circumstances surrounding us, we can rest in knowing God is constant and in control. He wants us to remain constant and faithful, also.

December 24, 2019 – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year. Often great memories are built during those special opportunities that the season brings. We thoroughly enjoy whatever time we can spend with our family and close friends. And yes, we love to see the expectation in the faces of our grandchildren and the ability to still surprise the bigger kids. Good food, wonderful music, tasty snacks, gift exchanges, and great fellowship cause us to be thankful for our blessings; however, remembering the Reason for the Season adds so much more value to all the celebration.

December 17, 2019 – Joy

Many people are on a quest for “success” and “personal happiness” — at least according to how the world defines them. Our culture sets up for us models of wealthy, famous, well-dressed people and says that if we can just become like them, we’ll be happy. What Hollywood and professional sports project as “winners” are often just really unhappy and unfulfilled people.

December 10, 2019 – The Ultimate Gift

We can spend our whole life chasing dreams, toys, and adventure only to end up tired, alone, and empty. If all we’re chasing is our own happiness, we’re chasing after the wind. When we pursue the things of God, we will find lasting joy, adventure, and eternal treasures. I’ve found the greatest pleasures in life often come from giving rather than getting… a simple truth that even a child understands…

December 3, 2019 – Where Are the Men!

December 3, 2019 – Where Are the Men!

Friends, we have a moral and spiritual war going on that is as equally devastating as nuclear bombs being dropped on our country. Men must rise-up and become warriors for God and their families or this culture is doomed. We must lovingly project an agenda of hope, strength, courage, and great character to the younger generation.

November 26, 2019 – Happy Thanksgiving

Gratitude, you see, is one of the evidences that God is in us and that He is working in our lives. Why do I say that? Because in the world in which we live today, there are so many reasons to be ungrateful. So many reasons to complain. Too many things we experience in the media that can cause us to be disheartened.

November 19, 2019 – Finding a Bull Moose

Unexpected difficulties — we all experience them. How do you handle your problems? Many people believe that once you become a Christian, all your troubles go away. This illusion is simply not Biblical. What we can count on with absolute confidence is that God is in control and He is with us during times of trouble.

November 12, 2019 – Desolation

With all the social, political and economic turmoil in our world, it’s no wonder many people struggle with anxiety, rejection, abandonment, emptiness, and depression. Under the mounting pressures of just their daily lives, many are desperate for relief… and peace.

November 5, 2019 – Remember Whose You Are

A friend of mine often reminds his children, “You are my children. I have given you my name. Honor it… and me. When you leave this house, you carry it with you. When you return, bring it back as good as it was when you left.” What a sobering consideration for a “Christian”.

October 29, 2019 – Building a Legacy

October 29, 2019 – Building a Legacy

As a model for my approach to these athletes, I looked to Abraham, the Old Testament patriarch. His greatness was found in his hospitality to strangers (Genesis 18:1–8), his obedience to God (Genesis 26:5), and the blessing of the Lord upon his family and his life (Genesis 24:1). In three separate places found in God’s Word, we see Abraham called a “friend of God”. How encouraging! I want to be known as a friend of God.

October 22, 2019 – Making Disciples

How did Jesus make disciples? He used a small group approach. He took twelve very common guys and poured His life into theirs. Christ taught by example and with short stories. He connected with His followers in both attitude and action. They had real fellowship with the Master.

October 15, 2019 – Offer Living Water

Our culture wants to discourage believers by dispelling the claims of the Bible. Many of the social icons within this nation are a host of blasphemers and hypocrites. Our societal norms have been adjusted to accept all kinds of behavior that only two decades ago would have been ludicrous. Even a few of those running for political offices around the country deny that our moral compass is off. It would seem that getting the vote is more important than taking a stand. Some suggest that charisma is more important than character.
