Humility is the Freedom in Which God’s Glory Flourishes

I Peter 5:6-11  6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish,...


Open Heart, Eyes to See

Luke 23:34 “Then Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.’ And they divided His garments and cast lots.” This past Sunday for our Easter service we took a look at the characters that were present at the crucifixion. There were about 18 or so groups or individuals there, and I felt like the Lord wanted me to focus on the crowd, their reaction, and we as individuals and the church corporate relate to that crowd. Chances are, we would have been one of those in the crowd either jeering at Jesus, or just wondering...



I Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” Easter. The very word brings such a variety of thought to our minds and spirit that many of us instantly head off in different directions. Some go right to the cross, and consider the ultimate sacrifice. Some go back to the manger where it all started. Some think as I have today, of the story in between and how our Lord/Lamb spent so much time, took so much care, and gave so much love to those around Him...



I Peter 3:8-9 8 Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; 9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. We had a wonderfully exciting evening of open discussion at our mid-week bible study last night. With the seriousness of the socio-political events of this week, we took a moment to discuss these events that we, Christian or otherwise, must deal with as we move forward. We discussed...


Vanity, All is Vanity

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:      Fear God and keep His commandments,       For this is man’s all.        14 For God will bring every work into judgment,       Including every secret thing,       Whether good or evil. I awoke this morning to see that our beloved congress passed their omnibus health care bill. This is a bill that includes laws that require me as a citizen to make purchases at my own expenses. The government is now not only taxing us more than ever before, it will now be putting its hands directly into our pockets and making...
