A BETTER DIET

January 22, 2020

Church family, In my reading of God’s Word this morning, I read through 1 Timothy 4 & 5. Several things caught my attention and caused reflection. Let me share one with you. 1 Timothy 4:7-10 (NLT) Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. “Physical training is good,…

OUR GOD IS GREATER!

December 12, 2019

Church family, It is a chilly morning here in northwest Ohio and my day is getting started. Much of my family will be coming here for Christmas. It is one of the things I look forward to the most during Christmas.

PRAYER, PRAISE, AND THANKSGIVING

Dear Church family, As we approach the fall holiday season, what runs through my mind is “Wow, another year is almost over!” I am sure many of you have thought the same thing!

NOT ‘SELF-HELP’ BUT SURRENDER

October 24, 2019

Church family, I came across this video teaching this morning and wanted to share it with you. It is a little over 6 minutes long. It’s worth a listen (definitely, more than once). Why Christians Should Be Cautious About Self-Help Resources   So often we look at Christianity as a ‘means to an end.’ “Here’s what you need to…

WAIT…THEN MAKE DISCIPLES

October 17, 2019

Church family, Most of us are fully aware of the “Great Commission” passage of scripture found in Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV) And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father…

HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND?

September 19, 2019

“Earlier this week, the California Senate passed a resolution calling upon all Californians—despite religious beliefs—to embrace LGBTQ lifestyles.” As I read this first sentence of an article on the Christian Headlines website, I paused to reflect on what was being said here. What does it mean for me as a Christian? I read through the rest of…

GETTING OURSELVES ON MISSION

August 29, 2019

Church family, Often the subject “making disciples” comes up in conversations I have with folks. I use the phrase “making disciples” because it summarizes what folks are really talking about. Sometimes these phrases are used: “sharing our faith”, “telling people about Jesus”, “inviting others to church”, etc. Sadly, I believe many Christians have the desire to want…
