JUST DON’T DO IT!!

With all the events that have happened recently in our country, it is easy to get caught up in all the mud slinging people, politicians, and news media like to do. It’s almost impossible to find the real truth with all the one sided voices. We as Christians should be held to a higher standard. […]

WHAT IS YOUR GIFT??

Just as your physical body has many parts, the spiritual body of Christ also has many parts. Those parts are people who have found their purpose in life. Have you ever asked yourself what your purpose in life is? What am I to do with my life that will contribute to the Kingdom of God? […]

LOVE IS THE KEY!!

When I was growing up it was not uncommon for us four boys to disagree among ourselves over simple things. It was a common thing for us to stand shoulder to shoulder when someone outside wanted to pick on any one of us. There are just two years between each of us so the bond […]

CALL ON GOD ANYTIME!!

How often have you had someone say, “Call me anytime?” Few people mean it literally when they make this statement. I’ve said that to many people through the years. I had one church member with Alzheimer’s that called me quite often during the night. The invitation got pretty difficult when it came to carrying it […]

WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVE??

How many times have we not done things for others because you remember they didn’t help you out when you asked them? The world has taught us to do things expecting something in return. We do something extra on our jobs expecting advancement. We do something for others expecting them to return the favor. We […]

ITS YOUR DECISION!!

There is an old statement that remains true today. That phrase is “If it’s important to you, you will find time to do it.” We make every effort to make the important things in our life. We will go to work when we really don’t feel like. We attend our children’s events without fail. We […]

GOD GIVEN AUTHORITY!!

My Bible reading this morning talked about authority. All of us have heard of, or exercised the “power of attorney.” It is when you give authority to someone to “be you.” They can use your name, speak for you, do business for you, and handle important documents, just like they were you. Jesus told his […]

GOD CAN DO IT!!

We are prone to embellish stories when we tell what has happened to us. We think others have embellished their stories when they tell them. I have been in those circles when men were sharing their stories of things they have done. I often hesitate to believe some of the things they tell because they […]

LOOKING FOR GOD!!

We all have played the age-old game of hide-n-seek. I played it often with my children when they were growing up. I would hide and they would try to find me. The game is pretty simple and lots of fun. The whole point of the game was to hide so they would eventually find me…and […]

LOVE GOD’S WAY!!

Love is the bond that ties us together. Loving others and being loved is what gives us confidence in a world that seeks to destroy your self esteem, goals, and your dreams. It is difficult to love others without knowing that you are loved. It is impossible to be loving unless you remember and understand […]

LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!

My devotion this morning is on loving others as you love yourself. Prejudice is a universal weakness in human nature, with every race and every group of people. We all struggle with a tendency to judge others by external characteristics rather than their value as people created by God. If not skin color, it is […]

BE CONFIDENT IN GOD!!

There was a TV show a few years ago now called the A-Team. They had one phrase that we repeated often. It was, “No brags, just fact.” They repeated it every time they were successful at the task they were attempting to conquer. There are a lot of people in the world who are struggling […]
