The Necessity of Vision

This past Sunday we recognized and celebrated all that God is doing and has been doing at Grace Chapel. It’s amazing! As the senior pastor I am grateful and humbled by what I see happening in every corner of our ministry. While we recognize and celebrate what He has done, we also need to look […] Continue reading…

New Year God’s Way—Awe-Filled Remembrance

In the Jewish tradition the holidays opening the New Year (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) were known as “Days of Awe.” They were days filled with God’s people remembering all that God had done for them. They remembered with awe the God of creation. They believed that creation itself occurred on Rosh Hashanah. We must […] Continue reading…

New Year is about Spiritual Rousing

God’s New Year is about spiritual rousing. Leviticus 23:23–25 gives us a picture of New Year, God’s way. The blowing trumpet in ancient Israel marked solemn, joyful, and  urgent occasions. It caused them to be roused. This Scripture concerns the Feast of the Trumpets. It happened in the seventh month in the Jewish worship calendar and […] Continue reading…

Seven Glories of Jesus Christ

Christmas is a time to reflect on the person and divinity of Jesus Christ.  While the world seems to want to push Jesus farther and farther away from Christmas, we, as believers need to, with conviction, share and hold fast to the truth. We need to speak about Jesus with the authority of God’s truth, […] Continue reading…

Lessons from the Magi

When we read Matthew 2:1–11 we encounter “wise men from the East,” or Magi. These men were probably Persian and they were, like the Levites of Israel, a tribe or group of priests. They were teachers, instructors and highly skilled in philosophy, medicine and natural science. At this time they were good and holy men. […] Continue reading…

The ABC’s of Sharing Your Faith

In yesterday’s message, Gospel Declared, I alluded to the ABC’s of sharing your faith. I’d like to expand a bit on that in this Blog. The first word is available. If we are going to declare the gospel, we have to be available. I know that might seem just so like, Well, of course you […] Continue reading…

The Very First Thanksgiving

In the fall of 1621, just a few months after the Mayflower left to go back to England, Gov. William Bradford announced a time of Thanksgiving. For three days, the pilgrims rejoiced in the goodness of God. The celebration was a response of these godly people to the truth of the Word of God that […] Continue reading…

Standing at the Door

I am writing in this post about a man named Lot and a stand he took at a very crucial time. Lot was Abram’s [later called Abraham] nephew. Abram was a man of incredible wealth and he had a huge entourage, which, in that day, distinguished him as a man of means. Lot also had […] Continue reading…

The Theology of Shout

Many times, as we express our faith, we just need to shout. Shout in praise, shout for joy, and shout about God’s faithfulness when we’ve extended ourselves to believe and obey, in faith. I call it the theology of shout. Scripture gives us some vivid pictures of this: First we just need to read Joshua […] Continue reading…

God’s Deliverance

We’ve been examining Ezekiel 38 and 39 over the last few weeks. Chapter 38 focuses on the threat from the Ten Most Wanted (Gog and the nations) who are opposed to God and His people. Chapter 39 concentrates more on the deliverance of God’s people from that threat. Our God is a God of deliverance. […] Continue reading…
