Self-Absorbed Generation

The word we live in tells us to do more and more. According to the world, if we don’t do more we are not successful. We also live in a world that is so busy they have forgotten God. On Sunday mornings, you can find children and their parents on the sports field instead of […]

Staying in my Lane for 2020!

We have just finished up with one of the busiest seasons of the year: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years next week.  If your calendar has been like mine it has been filled to the brim.  Because of the busyness in my life, I have found myself straying from the Word of God, which means I am straying […]

Christmas Complaining

God has called us to live a life of thankfulness. Even in this busyness of this Christmas Season our moments should be punctuated with thanksgiving. But we become too busy “Doing Christmas.” Decorating our homes, catching up with friends, buying presents and sometimes complaining about how tired we are during the Christmas Season. I know […]

ENCOURAGEMENT

I like to think of life as a team sport.  The reason I say this is because we all need occasional pats on the back from our teammates.  As followers of Christ, we are called upon to spread the Good News of Christ, and we are also called to spread a message of encouragement and hope to […]

book of Jeremiah

Reading Thru the Word

Jeremiah – Are you obeying God’s call? Jeremiah was 20 years old when God called him to be a prophet. It is clear that Jeremiah was overwhelmed by the task. “Ah, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am only a child.”  In God’s Word, we see there was a large group […]

Jeremiah – Without God, nothing gets done: with Him, there is nothing that can’t be done. Join us as we start in the book of Jeremiah this week.  Jeremiah was a prophet who had the unsavory assignment of declaring to the nation of Judah that the Babylonians were coming.  The people did not listen and it did […]

Reading Thru the Word

Spiritual Revival by King Hezekiah This month we read about Hezekiah in 2 Chronicles 29-31. What amazed me about Hezekiah is that he went against the culture norm to worship the Lord. Hezekiah is described as a King of Judah who had a personal and growing relationship with God.  He was a king dedicated to God […]

Reading Thru the Word

ISAIAH – CHAPTER 6 – ISAIAH’S COMMISSION Reading about Isaiah’s commission in chapter 6 is one of my favorites.  Isaiah’s lofty view of God in verses 1-4 gives me a sense of God’s greatness, mystery and power.  He sees the King, the Lord Almighty sitting on the throne and his robe fills the temple.  Can you imagine seeing […]

JONAH

Reading Thru the Word

JONAH – A STORY OF SECOND CHANCES We have all read the story of Jonah and have taught it to our children.  We were taught that Jonah did not obey God and he got on a big ship. God sends a big storm because Jonah was running away from Him and the other men threw Jonah into […]
