Hang In There Baby

by

Luke 9:62, Matthew 24:10-13.  Perseverance is important, not only in the spiritual realm, but in the practical every-day living of our lives as well. It has been said that 99% of success is due to persistence…hanging in there and not giving up. Only a small hand-full of people reach the heights of accomplishment they are capable of […]

The Balanced Christian Life

by

John 14:6. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life…” Many Christians treat this passage as if it were multiple choice…Is Jesus  “A” The way, “B” The truth, or “C” The life?  We tend to choose the one we feel most comfortable with.  A (Jesus is the way) appeals to those who have a […]

Going The Extra Mile

Genesis 24:12-19. We live in a time when many people are guided by the principle Minimum effort for Maximum pay. The humanistic influences in our society have fed this conflict within us that asks, “Why should I do more than I have to?” What’s wrong with just getting by? The answer to that question is […]

Where No One Stands Alone

by

Psalm 102. This Psalm is a paradox: It is a Psalm of desolation but it could also be described as one of consolation.  There is the reality of suffering but also the reality of God’s presence. Somewhere in every Psalm we will find ourselves. This Psalm is no exception. The author of this Psalm is brutally […]
