Inspirational Message

Over the last several weeks, we have been looking at the topic of stewardship. The concept of stewardship is rooted in God’s ownership. Without acknowledging an owner, there is no stewardship.Slavery in any form and in any time of history is an affront to the fundamental concept of freedom of man. However, God chose to use the metaphor of slavery in the Bible to challenge us to understand what it means to follow him with our whole hearts and with our entire lives. A steward i...

Your word goes out

“…So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11)This is a reassuring message about the Lord’s power to accomplish His purpose. There is no one else who can be trusted with the security of the universe. It is an awesome thing to think of the fact that all God has to do is speak, or I would say, think a thing, and it will happen. That is b...

Blindsided

The verse of the day is Deuteronomy 33:26-27. There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides on the heavens to your help, And through the skies in His majesty. The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms;It happened again! For the second time this winter a deer came bounding out from the side of the road and blindsided one of our cars. Now we have two cars with huge dents and mangled hoods. You need to be so careful driving the back roads at this...

In a twinkling of an eye

Believe it or not, it’s true the Bible says that Jesus will come back. Have you ever seen the movie or heard the phrase “don’t be left behind?” The time is coming closer and closer when God will say enough is enough. I am not just blowing smoke when I write what I wrote.The Bible tells us the beginning and tells us that the end is near. Jesus came to earth to save us from the wrath of God, the God that burned up Sodom and Gomorrah. If you don’t believe...

Pulpit Talk: Reconsidering Judas

Next week is the Christian Holy Week remembering the central drama of the Christian faith: the Passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. In this dramatic parade of tragedy and triumph stands one man that the church rarely mentions, a man who is often reduced to a caricature or a curse. And his name was Judas.This most curious of disciples appears no different from the rest for most of the story. Of course at the end it is he who is identified as the one who betrays Jes...

Inspirational Message

Growing up in church I was taught God’s Word (the Bible) by my parents, my pastor, Sunday School teachers, and youth workers with great love, impact, and conviction. I am grateful for the teachers in my life through the years.As I think back to those times, the teaching I received rightly emphasized Jesus as “the way, and the truth, and the life;” (John 14:6) He is our salvation and hope for each and every person. Life is meaningless apart from a real, personal re...

This old house

The verse of the day is Hebrews 13:5b. “… Be content with what you have, for He has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.”I love living in an old farmhouse. The house was built in the mid-1800’s and holds many quaint nuances. When in a pensive mood I imagine who may have lived here before me and wonder what kind of life they lived. I delight in the decorative oak staircase in the front hall and the uniqueness of the original fireplaces.

Christmas all year long

Let me begin with a word to the ones that may think different from me. I have a right to celebrate Christmas every day of the year. Some may think that what I say is not needed. But the reason we celebrate Christmas is because of the birth of Jesus Christ. He is the One who came to save me from the wrath of God.The Bible says if we accept Him, He will change us, and we will become a new creation. Man sinned against a holy God and Jesus came from glory to earth to save a sinful peop...

No peace for the wicked

“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.” (Isaiah 57:21)Promises or realities come in all forms from God. Here is a reality that humankind must face. Rebellion against God will not bring meaningful life. Wickedness is not rewarded and will not bring peace physically, mentally or spiritually. When God is left out of one’s life it will be a ruin. God and wickedness are incompatible. Thus, the peace that passes understanding that comes from God ...

Inspirational Message

We are continuing to explore the topic of stewardship. What is it? How do we live it out based on the Bible?Last week we came to a greater understanding of slavery in the ancient Roman Empire and the importance this concept was to both Jesus and Paul in their teachings. This leads us into how ownership and slavery tie directly into Stewardship for us today.
