Whom Shall We Obey

I have asked Dr. Paul Jehle for permission to reprint an excellent article he recently shared with me.  Dr. Jehle is the Senior Pastor at the New Testament Church of Cedarville in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  He is also the Director of the Plymouth Rock Foundation. He is a noted educator and constitutional scholar and a tireless […]

Stop Striving!

Driving over to the church today to help deliver stock for our food pantry the Holy Spirit whispered into my spirit, “Stop striving.” No, I did not hear the voice of God, but I sensed His presence and all the driving urgency that has been tying my insides into knots just ebbed away. Like so many […]

If We Pray Only to Win an Election

  In 1746 Jonathan Edwards was inspired by a “Memorial” penned by a Scottish Presbyterian minister named John Erskine, appealing to the people of Scotland and elsewhere to unite in prayer for the “revival of religion.” Erskine sent a single copy of his Memorial to Edwards who was so moved by it, set about to […]

The Eve of Tomorrow

November 2, 2020 On the eve of the 2020 election when so many of us are pinning our hopes for a prosperous and peaceful future on the outcome of tomorrow’s election––I offer the following. On January 1, 404 A.D, a monk by the name of Telemachus, traveled to Rome in order to encourage the churches […]

Only Eight Words

  Only eight words. No introduction, no sermon, no amusing anecdotes, no funny illustrations, no altar call, no apology, no subtlety, no permission asked and none granted. It was a cold, direct pronouncement of impending judgment; the response of a holy God to their wickedness.  Jonah traversed the broad expanse of the city, one side […]

Misplaced Expectations

  There are those who predict that the judgment of God is on the horizon. I would suggest that the judgment of God is already upon us. Many of the problems we want our government to “fix” actually come from the Hand of God Himself in response to our wickedness and rebellion and for this, […]

Voting Wisely

  The ancient knight addressed Indiana Jones as he sought the Holy Grail: “Choose wisely.” I fear that many are casting their vote hysterically. I voted. I did not vote for Donald Trump, I did not vote against Donald Trump. Many of my friends detest Donald Trump – they see him as arrogant and flawed. […]

Rage

 “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:1-3) The Psalmist asks a probing question: “Why do […]

Shame On Us!

I am not what I ought to be, but thank God I’m not what I used to be.  First Lady, Melania Trump spoke last night from the Rose Garden at the White House. She was elegant and measured in her speech which stands out remarkably from so much of the political rhetoric of the hour. […]

We Are Doing It All Wrong

We’ve Been Doing It Wrong. I had a revelation this morning. Just before our morning worship service began a realization struck me in a very powerful way. So often, as Christ-followers, we fail to recognize the simplest truths––even if they are right in front of us. A simple comment made to me caused me to […]
