Why Is IT?

Why is it that we try everything we can think of before we actually give our problem to the Lord who can solve all dilemmas? Why do we have such confidence in ourselves that we discount the God of heaven who created all things? Do we not know that if we give it to God, we can finally rest from our worry? Why is it that even though we "know" these things, and we believe them, we still struggle with retaining "ownership" of our troubles? Do we not understand that when we release the load to our Father, we no longer have to carry the load ourselves? Can we now trust God? After many millennia of history, why is it that man still has trouble with trusting our Lord? I think it all goes back to one

Thank You Lord!

As a church we have many goals. Our most important goal is to serve, honor, and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ as we live out our days on the earth together. To do that, we must make it a priority to come up with "roads" into the hearts and minds of those who need the gospel the most. During this National Emergency due to the Coronavirus, we have had to empty out the auditorium in order to protect our membership from the virus. In order to reach the people, we had to put more emphasis on our live streaming program. Of course we already had it in place, and that really helped! I notice, however, that our viewing audience has about quadrupled the normal attendance in our normal auditorium servi

We've Come This Far by Faith

That old song with the above title, says a lot about true Christian expectation. Though it references the past and past events, it also emphasizes looking to the future with expectations of similar results as what we experienced in the past according to our faith and God's promises. Our Lord promised us that He would never leave us. In Deuteronomy 31:6 God said, "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." During the past few days, our world has entered the dark room of fear. Around the globe people are doing all they can to not become infected with the dreaded Covig 19 virus, (Corona vir

Explore a New World

Columbus, Ponce de Leon, Magellan, and Coronado are names you may not think of every day, and names you may not have thought of since you were in high school. These were just some of the men who came to explore a new world. Today, people don't think there are any new and exciting worlds to explore. They are wrong. It reminds me of the father of Orville and Wilbur Wright when he told his two sons, "Everything that can be invented already has been." Then they invented flight! In our world, there remains one territory largely untapped. That is the territory of the heavenly realm. In this adventure, all who put their trust in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sin get a ticket to the largely

It's Too Big!

I think there is a large part of our personal ministries that never get done because we think it's too much for us to do. We look at it and say, "I can't possibly do all that! It's too much!" But like the lessons of life we have been taught, we must run the race one step at a time. If we look at each little segment of the big picture, one at a time, we can always do step two after step one, but if we look at step three before step two, it will begin to seem too much for us to do. Jesus taught us to take one day at a time. He said, 'Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own," (Matt 6:34). So we can't live tomorrow today. We must
