SATAN AND THE MESS HE MAKES

April 21, 2020

Since last Monday, I finished reading 1 Samuel and began the first few chapters of 2 Samuel. I am reminded that if I ever hear anyone say again that the Bible is boring, I’ll assume they haven’t read it! If you like suspense and action books, the Bible has its share. As I preached on Easter, in…

WHETHER OR NOT TO SEEK REVENGE

April 15, 2020

Perhaps you have heard it said, “Life is not fair.” Often life does not go as we would like it to. People do not respond and behave like we’d like them to. Sometimes the reward of doing “the right thing” isn’t immediate and embraced by those around us. Life can be hard. We look again at 1…

THE POWER OF THE CROSS

April 10, 2020

Easter – a time each year where were celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ! It is preceded by Good Friday, the day we observe as the day that Jesus went to the cross and was crucified. Yes, I realize this year taking time to recognize and celebrate these incredibly important days will look different for…

GRIPPED BY FEAR

April 7, 2020

This past weekend the sermon I shared with you was from Mark 4:35-41. In the message, I contrasted two types of fear: being afraid and being in awe. The more we know and, by faith, trust Jesus – who He is and what He has done – the less afraid we should be. At the same time,…

GOD IS IN CONTROL

April 2, 2020

Our God is an awesome God! One of the attributes of God is that He is omnipotent – all powerful. As I looked at 1 Samuel 19 this morning, that was the thought I came away with. As I have shared, Saul was rejected by God as king of Israel. His failure to obey and honor the Lord…

HOW DO YOU FACE THE GIANTS?

April 1, 2020

We are starting our third week facing a “giant” challenge. Most of us have been confined to our homes and encouraged to stay there as our country faces an unseen enemy – a coronavirus. Over the past couple weeks, I have talked to many of you by phone and I am encouraged to hear that you are…

OBEDIENCE MATTERS

March 25, 2020

Church family,   Continuing to look at lessons from 1 Samuel, chapter 13 includes the beginning of Saul’s reign as king of Israel. In the first part of the chapter, Saul puts together an army and his son, Jonathan, leads them to a victory over their nemesis, the Philistines. As a result of this smaller scale…

GETTING RIGHT WITH THE LORD

March 23, 2020

Church family, I have been reading through the book of 1 Samuel the past couple weeks. Today I was reading through chapter 12, Samuel’s farewell address. Prior to this chapter, Samuel the prophet was the one who spoke to the people the Word of the Lord. In time, the people became restless and wanted a king “like other…

TRUST HIM

March 18, 2020

This morning I am sitting in my study, reading the scriptures and reflecting upon these times we are living in. As you know, I have been preaching through the gospel of Mark over the past weeks. This coming Sunday, we will look at Mark 4:1-20. While studying, I typically read beyond the specific passage that…
