Pursuing Excellence (Part 1)

(Over the next few weeks or so, I am going to be exploring the “pursuit of excellence” in our service to God. I understand that its not keen political commentary or dynamic prophetic insight, but I have been convicted that we have lost to a great degree in the Body of Christ, our thirst for […]

Needy

David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. And when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him and everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul gathered to him. And he became captain over […]

He Is

Over the course of one’s life he hears many announcements. Announcements that bring jubilation and announcements that bring terror and panic. There are announcements concerning the mundane and announcements about world changing events. Our pastor asked me to bring the closing thoughts for our Christmas Sunday morning worship service in which the the children of […]

The Simple Gospel

I have not posted for more than four weeks. I have been on a self-imposed hiatus for a number of reasons. I’ve been busy with flesh and blood issues of life. I have really not had the luxury of engaging in a lot of high minded reflection. (I’m not really very “high” minded anyway.) I’ve […]

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give […]

Yes, I Voted

Ultimately, we must each confess that if the country is saved, it will not be the power of a Donald Trump to deliver us – but God’s. And, if the nation is driven to ruin it will not be the arm of a Hillary Clinton that destroys us – but God’s. Out nation’s heart is […]

Enough

I will tell you a story as related to me by an elderly professor when I was in school. I was awakened this morning thinking about the story he told us. He was a former missionary to China; one of the missionaries who was driven out of China when the Chinese Communist came to power. […]

No Might

2 Chronicles 20:1-12 – After this the Moabites and Ammonites, and with them some of the Meunites,[a] came against Jehoshaphat for battle. Some men came and told Jehoshaphat, “A great multitude is coming against you from Edom, from beyond the sea; and, behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar” (that is, Engedi). Then Jehoshaphat was afraid and […]

Living Beneath Our Calling

A troubling season in our nation’s history for sure. No doubt we are at a critical juncture in the life of our country. We have at the helm of the major political parties the most disliked candidates for president anyone can remember. There has been more consternation and doubt in the minds of voters than […]

A Word Fitly Spoken

Only on a couple of occasions have I quoted another writer at such length. Over the past couple of weeks, Beth Moore has taken a lot of heat over what many have mis-construed as support for Hillary Clinton because of the revelations of Donald Trump’s coarse and indefensible speech. In a recent quote Beth says: […]
