If there is one dominant character trait of Jesus Christ, it is His humility. You see it in every area of His life, from the manger to the cross. Every step our Lord took was in perfect submission to His Father and in the role of a servant. Someone once said that if you think … Read More

Look, if someone tries to tell you that they don’t have a problem with materialism, I suggest you smile politely and walk away. It’s like saying, “I don’t think I have a problem with pride.” Sorry, but it just “ain’t” so and you just proved it. Americans are probably the worse. Assuming that Christians are … Read More

We find all three of those words in Psalm 146:5, “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” This verse is one of those great encouragement verses in the Bible, because it promises everything that we need: Help, Hope, and Happiness. If you … Read More

On August 1, 2013, we began a meeting with twelve Christian men on death row, who wanted to be discipled in the Word of God.

The words that Ruth spoke to Naomi always move me. Take a look: And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where … Read More

All right, I know I am about to stick my neck out and I am sure that I will not be disappointed that someone will take his best shot at this. Regardless, I am determined to say it. Every man has places in his heart that he carefully guards. No one gets into these rooms … Read More

Now, don’t leave me hanging out there by myself, but I love watching TV. Not only that, but I like my iPHONE. On top of that, I enjoy my laptop. I get entertained, brought up on today’s happenings, get a call or an email to pick up my suit at the laundry, and can work … Read More

With stewardship emphasis month behind us and “All Tithe Sunday” before us, I would like to go on record acknowledging that there are valid reasons for tithing that go beyond the mandates of the Bible. Once we determine that God has instructed us to return to Him His first-fruits (the top 10%), then that’s all … Read More

“But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is … Read More
