• Our Inheritance


    Today many people make the common mistake of thinking of the here and now. Our minds get wrapped up in daily life. Our daily thoughts are comprised of a son's soccer game, a doctor's appointment or a planned golf outing. Occasionally we think about our future and we plan for our retirement or owning our own home.


  • Real Love


    Little children absolutely love making something special for their moms on Mother's Day.


    They are so anxious, they rarely wait until the holiday to bestow their gifts.


    Wanting to please their mother, they give the special love filled gift to her waiting in anticipation for smiles, hugs and praise in return for their handiwork.


  • The One who loves all


    Many different images run through our minds when we picture Jesus. Titles such as "King of Kings", "Prince of Peace", and "Lord of Lords" often cast Jesus in a "royal light."


  • Bold and Confident


    Hebrews 4:16 (ESV) "Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."


    Each day has its own wonders and challenges. They can be either positive or negative. It all depends upon our relationship with God and our personal dependence on and security in our Lord.


  • Celebrations


    Each year on July 4 we celebrate our nation’s independence with parties, fireworks and cookouts.


    In much the same manner, we celebrate birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduations. We can read in God’s holy word of other celebrations.


  • An attitude of Selflessness


    “Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves”. (Philippians 2:3)


  • What Are We Saved From?


    As Christians, we are always concerned if someone is “saved”. Thankfully someone was persistent in making sure we were saved and consequently we want to make sure everyone we encounter is saved too. The question we must ask is saved from what? If we forget to tell people what they are being saved from, they are just jumping through hoops to please man.

  • Good news in bad times


    One need only turn on the TV or open a newspaper to see the chaos and diminishment of law and order both in our homeland and the rest of the world.


    Turmoil seems to be the norm. It could be frightening and very compelling: if it were not for Jesus.


  • Old Rule – New Twist


    A modern interpretation of “The golden rule” was posted on a church sign “Tweet others as you want to be tweeted.”


    Like all other forms of communication twitter can be used in a positive or negative way. The golden rule when practiced makes a positive difference. This is true of all our daily actions whether at home, work, play, or tweeting.


  • God’s love is ever present


    How often in life do our plans get interrupted because of pressures of everyday life?


    Hectic schedules, balancing budgets, illnesses and dealing with disagreeable people can disrupt our plans.


    These disruptions can keep us from accomplishing our plans but not God’s plans for our lives.
