There will always be Sunday

Several years ago, I heard a sermon titled, "It's Friday, but Sunday's a coming." I don't remember everything about it, but I do remember where the idea came from.

Celebrate that Jesus is alive

Easter is later this year than usual. It is very rare for Easter to come on the last Sunday of April. We have to wait much longer than we usually do. But we wait with great anticipation. We know, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story."

Don't use excuses to not obey

Jesus will help fulfill destiny

When we think of why Jesus Christ came to earth more than 2,000 years ago, we might think of how he taught, healed or preached the good news of salvation. We might even think of how he lived a perfect life of example. All of these are important, but they are not the main reason he came.

Let your soul be regulated by Holy Spirit

Jesus proved it's possible to get back up

There are many obstacles we must overcome or maneuver around in our lives. Sometimes these hurdles seem like they're almost too much to handle and we feel like giving up altogether. Life can hit so hard that it knocks the wind right out of us.

Never give up, give in to Satan

When Peter penned the following words, he was being directed by the Holy Spirit to give a warning to Christians. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world" (1 Peter 5:8, 9). While those in the world may not care about this warning, the child of God should treat it seriously.

Those who trust will live forever

This week has been a time of reflection for me. Monday would have been my mom's birthday. Thursday marked the day she passed away. And today is the sixth anniversary of her funeral. Interestingly enough, this year those dates fell on the same days of the week as the final week of her life. I've thought a lot about Mom and life and eternity this week.

Let's remember what Easter is about

As we head into a very special time of the year for Christians, we must take the time to truly understand what Easter is all about.

Heaven's value never decreases

The other day I was talking to someone about what I paid for my house about 10 years ago, what it was worth a couple of years ago and what it is worth today. The value went up and then came crumbling down again. We have not been hit with devaluation of property nearly as bad as most communities in our country.

The Lord won't lead you astray

On Sunday evenings in our church, I have been preaching a series entitled, "Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe: Modern Christian Urban Myths." I got the idea from a book by the same title written by a pastor named Larry Osborne. It really has been a fun study, both for the church and for me.

Where is God in your life? Part 2

When it comes to our salvation, we need to remember to put God first. There are some hard things to understand in the Bible, but how to be saved is not one of them.

We are approaching Memorial Day weekend, and it is sneaking up on many of us. It is a bit of a quirk that Memorial Day does not follow the last Sunday of May this year. Nevertheless, we pause this weekend to remember.

Learn from past, let God lead you

As I've written before, Paul wrote, "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope" (Romans 15:4). The Old Testament serves as a lesson to all to see how God has dealt with man and how man has dealt with God.
