    Capturing Opportunities in 2011

    Paul says in 1 Corinthians 16:9  “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.” There is no doubt that the door he describes is a door of opportunity to serve the Lord.   I wonder if you recognize the oppotunities that God has already placed in your life to […]

  • Putting some “LIFE” back into Life!

    The New Year is right around the corner, and if you are like me you start to contemplate the year gone by and see what kind of a year that it really was. Unfortunately, at the end of the year we may do our reconciling and find out that when we answer the question “Where […]

  • Self Made or God Made?

    This sculpture is called the “Self Made Man”… In Matthew 9:9-13 we have a simple account of the call of Matthew by the Lord, and an immediate response to that call by Matthew.

  • Bible Study Tools

    Over the past few weeks I have had many people ask me about Bible Study tools. First I say “Praise the Lord” for the question. You may know that the bible never commands us to read it, but it does command us to study it. (2 Timothy 2:15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, […]

  • How am I Remembered?

    This might seem a little self serving, but I actually wrestled with this question before I became a Pastor. I was studying the book of Philippians and came across 1:3 which says. (Philippians 1:3) I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, And I thought to myself… What made Paul remember those people in […]

  • Making a Difference through Parenting

    Today, one of the toughest things to do is manage the media that your children are exposed to. Technology is not going away, so to just stick our heads in the sand and pretend that it will leave us is really not a realistic option for parents. I have talked with several parents who allow […]
