Grateful for What He Has Done

Luke 17:11–19 shows us a stark contrast between gratitude—showing an attitude of thanksgiving—and ingratitude—an attitude of people who get what they want, then never come back and they forget God and all He’s done for them. In 2015 I want to be sure I’m always grateful for what God has done and is doing 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…

The Gifts of the Wise Men

When we read Scripture we know very little about the wise men. Every year people send millions of Christmas greetings that show three kings presenting gifts to the child in the manger. We sing “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” But, in fact, we don’t really know if there were three wise men or a […] 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…

A Living Hope

 In yesterday’s Resurrection Sunday message I talked about Jesus and fact that He is our living hope. Peter reminds us in 1 Peter 1:3–4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ […] Continue reading…

He Lives

 This coming Sunday is Resurrection Sunday. While many people refer to this day as Easter I prefer to call it by this name because even though Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, He lives. And, that is the message of this coming Sunday and every Resurrection Sunday. The reason we celebrate is because of […] Continue reading…

We make disciples by: Sharing the Truth so people can become followers of Jesus Teaching the Truth so people can be transformed by Jesus Living the […] Continue reading…

Choosing the Divine Appointment

 Hebrews 2:11 reminds us of Jesus’ humanity. Like you, and me, Jesus knew what it meant to be tired. John 4:6 tells us, “Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well.”  Pastor Jon Courson wrote, “He knows how it feels to be bone-tired. I’m glad about that because I feel that […] Continue reading…

The True Meaning of Christmas

 Charles Dickens is best remembered for authoring A Christmas Carol, a novel made into many movies and stage plays that families have enjoyed for over a one hundred years. It’s a classic. Besides being a writer, Dickens was also a Christian who had the same desire as any parent: “Make sure the children I am […] Continue reading…

One Astonishing Offer

Jesus Christ makes one astonishing offer to us. In all of His power, glory and yes, in the fact that He died for our sins, He says to all humanity, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine […] Continue reading…
