Teach Your Children


And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.—Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (ESV)     In Your Homes Where is the number one place to share the truth of God’s Word? At home. We grow with our families.Read More

The Gifts Of God


For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.—Ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV)     Called To Love and Serve I have preached on this passage so many times because itRead More

Think On These Things


Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.—Philippians 4:8  (ESV)   Redeemed And Changed One of the challenges for a redeemed child of God is that our sinful minds still run wild. In the silence of our hearts, we’ll lift our prayers to God. But something alwaysRead More

A Holy Week Devotion


Crucified I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20   Holy Week Is Here Ah, Holy week is upon us. I’m reminded of how expectant the people on Palm Sunday were when they jubilantly welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem.  TheyRead More

Doing Good


But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.—Luke 6:35 (ESV)     Follow God’s Example It sounds good to say that we are to love our enemies. It sounds good to do good. It sounds good to give without expecting anything in return. But itRead More

His Grace Is Sufficient


But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will  boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the  power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships,  persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.—II Corinthians 12:9-10 (ESV)   Power In Christ No one wantsRead More

More Than Empty Words


The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.’” “So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.”—NumbersRead More

Reflecting On The Early Church


And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together andRead More

More Than A Feeling


Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.—I Peter 4:8 (ESV)   Love Is An Act Love is oversimplified in our world in such a way that it, many times, becomes meaningless. But love for a Christian has great meaning. Paul says wonderfully in Romans 5:8 (ESV), “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This is where loveRead More
