June 15, 2021 – Two Kinds of Faith

In James 2, James introduces us to two kinds of faith. The one faith is a superficial faith. It’s the kind of faith to expect when we hear someone say, “I believe there’s a God.” The second kind of faith that James talks about is genuine faith. James first offers the example of Abraham to demonstrate the link between faith and action.

June 8, 2021 – Creative Provision

Reading through the Bible, one can’t help but notice how creative our loving heavenly Father is in providing for His children. I find this extremely encouraging. So often, when we’re in need, we imagine how God’s provision must come and typically we even pray that way.

May 18, 2021 – Stress

Although stress is not new, the fast pace of the technological age has deceived us. We have all these modern gadgets to make life easier, but they combine to inundate us with stressful stimuli 24/7.

May 11, 2021 – The Conviction of the Holy Spirit

Texas history is full of heroes, but Sam Houston is one of my favorites. Houston’s battle cry, “Remember the Alamo!” helped win independence for Texas. Much later still, he married the daughter of a Baptist preacher and trusted Christ as his Savior. His was a drastic conversion, as he purposed to live a life of righteousness.

May 4, 2021 – A Man After God’s Heart

I thoroughly enjoyed all my fishing and hunting adventures with my good friend, Jeff Klippenes. Born and raised in the backwoods of Northern Minnesota, he has a wealth of outdoor experience that adds to the excitement of every outing.

April 27, 2021 – The Scapegoat

Have you ever heard someone refer to a person as a scapegoat? A scapegoat is a person blamed for the wrongdoings of others. Maybe it’s that weird uncle who seems to mess up all the time, or the athlete who chokes on a critical play, or a person at work who gets the blame for everything that goes wrong.

April 20, 2021 – Age is No Excuse

I have enjoyed the pleasure that came from several friends and mentors in my life who were in their later years. Most churches and Christian ministries today could not continue without the totality of the dedication and determination of these senior committed Christians sharing their gifts and talents.

Early in his career (1989) songwriter/singer Garth Brooks wrote a song called “The Dance”. In 1991 the Academy of Country Music awarded him the Song of the Year for this piece. Why was this song such a hit?

March 10, 2021 – Follow Me!

When Jesus first called His disciples, He asked them to follow Him. And just before He ascended into heaven, He challenged those same disciples to follow Him. As His disciples, we are to follow Him. Following Jesus is a way of life, and not merely a one-time decision.
