Never quit trying to live Christian life

The apostle Paul wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:13,14).

God deserves prompt obedience

The other day my son and I were out in the boat fishing near St. Catherines Sound. We had taken along some frozen shrimp I had caught in a net earlier this month, and since I didn't want them to spoil I decided I needed to get rid of them.

You can overcome harsh words

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

There's time to trust in His provisions

The other day I had written down several things I needed to do while I was in town. Since I was in a hurry, I scribbled the things down on a scrap piece of paper.

Learn to always put your trust in God

We are taught in God's word that faith is necessary to be pleasing to God. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Heb 11:6).

Something about the pageantry...

I have to make a confession. I love what has been called "the pageantry of college football." I manage to go to a couple of games of my favorite team every year.

God's intent is for you to be trustworthy

I'm attending a wedding today. It will be a rather odd thing for me, because I will have no responsibilities in the wedding. For obvious reasons, I perform most of the wedding ceremonies I attend.

Are you paying attention to your spiritual heart?

"How's your heart spiritually?" This question is even more serious than questions about our physical heart. For if the physical heart fails, the spiritual heart better be ready.

Here's a model for personal prayer

Rethinking snap judgments

I have a confession to make, and it concerns a news report I heard recently. As I was driving home I heard on the news that a pastor of one of the largest churches in American is being accused of a horrible crime.

Be content with who you are

I recently read a story of a lady who spent $30,000 so she could look like Kim Kardashian. Now, she has to spend the next few years paying it off.

Work hard for the Lord

Back in the summers of my college days, I worked for a builder. For the most part, I kept the skilled laborers (carpenters and brick layers) supplied with materials. Then, there was the biggest mistake I made during my first summer.

Learn the Bible to understand the Holy Spirit’s purpose

"But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?' But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because ...

Pastor's Corner: Take a little time to find out what prayers can do

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months." - James 5:16-17
