All Talk and No Action

Nobody in their right mind can hear the reports of violence and death in our schools and be unaffected. It should greatly disturb us and move us to be proactive in heading off future problems. The sad reality of all of this is that we’ve become a nation of shouters because we’re in a mess and feel hopeless […]

Preaching For Response

In Luke 11, Jesus was accused of casting out demons by the power of Satan. Jesus meets their accusation head-on and shuts them up. In the moments after this encounter a woman cries out, “Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.” But he said, “Yea rather, blessed are they that hear […]

Deacon Selection Process

Today, we start a Journey that will culminate in the installation of additional Deacons to serve the church. In a nutshell, we need Deacons to:  Free your Pastor for study, prayer and preparation for feeding the flock.  Promote and protect church harmony  To strengthen the church toward spiritual and numerical growth  […]

MEMORIZE SCRIPTURE? HERE’S WHY.

“I can’t memorize because my memory is terrible!” Well, that’s reason one to memorize. Forcing our faulty brain to drive important information into long-term memory is good brain therapy. That only happens by process of repeating something daily over a long period of time. Phil. 4:8 tells us to think about whatever is true, honest, just, pure, […]

THE WAY BACK

It is heartbreaking to watch a believer in Christ drift away from fellowship with the Lord. It’s especially troubling when kind advice is offered, yet there is a refusal to listen. Maybe there is someone here this morning whose light of faith once burned brightly, but now that light is flickering and you’ve grown cold […]

SANTA SAVES?

A sad story hit the wires this week. One of those stories that pulls at our heart strings. It seems that a Tennessee man who plays Santa Claus at about 80 events a year was called by an ICU nurse to come to the bedside of a terminally ill boy. When Santa arrived the boy’s […]

​MERRY CHRISTMAS

Genesis is known as the book of beginnings. In it we find the first mention of many things: sin, death, marriage, childbirth, prayer, rain, etc. The book begins with creation and ends with a coffin in Egypt. Joseph dies at 110 years of age. He served the Lord until the very end. As he lay […]

JUST BLOWING OFF STEAM

1 Cor. 10:1-12 Are you in the habit of thanking God for only what you want? In the habit of grumbling a little when things don’t go the way YOU like them? So what’s wrong with a little grumbling? What difference does it make? All the difference in the world! Marriages usually don’t break up […]

FOR SURE?

We live in a world filled with doubt. Have you honestly tried to assess what is going to happen in this country given our current national climate? Does anybody know what they are doing? When are things going to get better? How are we going to make it? Listen, if there is something that you, […]

GODLY DESIRE

 A person won’t be saved unless they want to. I can tell you how, but I can’t make you want to. I can’t make you a better Christian than you want to be. I tell you how to be a soul winner, but I can’t make you be one. I can tell you how to […]
