You can't do it by yourself

Many of us remember the TV commercial about the elderly woman who was alone, fell in her home and "couldn't get up." She found herself in a bad situation. We all remember the woman's cry for help: "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."

Greater love has no one than this

Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." During this Memorial Day weekend, we take the time to remember those who have given their lives for us. I know that we, as a nation, have often debated the merits of a particular war. The reasons for conflict have been many and varied.

Always remember God cares

The Apostle Paul wrote, "Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Cor. 1:2 – 4). In a world where trouble waits around every corner it is good to know that Christians do not have to face trouble alone, we ...

Keep God fresh in your heart

Writing a column like this can be a challenge. After all, I also preach and teach two or three times every week. I don't want to use the same material over and over. I want to say something fresh and relevant. Still, the Christian message really hasn't changed in the last 2000 years. It is still about what Jesus did for us when He gave His life so that we might live.

Reacting to non-believers

Recently in a youth meeting we were discussing prayer requests when one of the teens started talking about a new student at his school. The student got into a discussion about religion and let him and his friends, who are professed Christians, know that they didn't want anything to do with God and would rather serve Satan.

Try to be ready

I just received news that my favorite uncle is close to passing away. He had cancer a few years ago that went into remission but recently it returned. The good news is that he has trusted Christ for forgiveness and has assurance of where he will end up after death.

Be generous with your gift to God

One of the funniest lines I've ever read was in a newspaper in Las Vegas, Nevada, the day after the Southern Baptist Convention met there in the late 1980's. I know, who would have thought that Southern Baptists, of all people, would meet in Las Vegas. But we did, and evidently made an impression on a number of people. The writer simply stated, "Ten thousand Southern Baptists descended on Las Vegas earlier this week with a twenty dollar bill in one hand, and a copy of the Ten Commandments in the other. They didn't break either one ...

Proverbs gives practical advice for today

I teach a Sunday-school class at our church, and we are currently studying the book of Proverbs. The other week, we were studying the first half of Proverbs 6, perhaps one of the most practical sections of the entire book.
