For Such a Time

There are many concepts alive in the Bible that aren’t spelled out as such. The word Trinity, for example isn’t there but we recognize the Trinity of God existing by the fact that Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit were all at the same place at the same time (Matt 3:17). Providence is another concept that exists even though you won’t see that word written out. Providence is defined as God’s intervention in the world. It is His hand at work even though it may not be immediately recognized as such. One passage that alludes to Divine Providence is Romans 8:26-29. Paul reveals to us that the Holy Spirit makes intercession, or stands in our behalf before God. Verse twenty-eight says that all things in our lives work for our good … Read entire article »

Your Next Battle

We don’t often like to think about battles in our lives. The battles we’ve fought are sometimes forgotten. The ones ahead of us aren’t something we want to think about either. Most of us, if we’re honest, would rather pretend we don’t have another one coming. But, there will be battles ahead for us until the day we leave this planet. A lot of Christians don’t like to consider themselves as soldiers and yet the Bible refers to warfare, our enemy, battles, overcoming and heavenly armor. We become like an ostrich with its head in the sand when we ignore this. God had a reason for recording so many military terms in His Word. That reason is to prepare us for fighting. Every good soldier dedicates himself to training and learning … Read entire article »

A Message for Fathers

I rarely do a message that corresponds to holidays. Today I will make an exception. I failed to write one for mothers a few weeks back and for that I apologize. I pray that you were honored for your role in the family. It’s not that I think the fathers have a more important role but that it is one that is desperately missing in our world today. I am even reluctant to write about this as I see my many failures as a dad. In my early days as a young father I failed my children over and over. My job or hobbies always came first. Through the years I slowly learned from my mistakes but too often it came from seeing my own faults played out in the lives … Read entire article »

Because it’s Strait

          We are looking at a passage this week that explains about the two gates to eternity. This is a parable of our Lord and is found in Matthew chapter seven.           It’s amazing to me that the enemy would offer so many false ways to find God. I suppose to some it seems that it would be impossible to find the way to heaven. To other people it seems that there are many ways and they as long as you are sincere you will get there. If sincerity was all that mattered then most people seeking God would find Him. If it didn’t matter which route a person took then most people would be there someday. Let’s look and see what the Son of God says about the way to God. … Read entire article »
