The Wounded Side This is the final act of injury to the Lord, and we should consider it.  Have you ever wondered why the soldier pierced the side of Jesus?  It was just as cruel as the first smack in the face. There was a purpose for every moment of Good Friday, yet God didn’t plan all this for his son. He didn’t...
When God Gets In The Way Psalm 59:9 “Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.” This is something to think about—the prevention of God. It’s a big part of his dealing with us. This psalm was written while...
All So Ready Matthew 24:44 “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Be ALL SO ready. Readiness must come before we do anything or go anywhere.  We get ready to go to town. We get ready to go to bed. Getting ready is a part of life. Outside the walls of the temple...
So Shine (Part 2) We call some of these the beatitudes, but they show us so much more; it’s not that we can be a light for Jesus—we are a light.  Jesus said “so shine.”  There is no reason we can’t. Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men...
Prayer of the Congregation David was intensely personal in many of his writings. He shared his feelings and struggles of his soul. We keep things private, but David wrote them down. We call them psalms. This unusual psalm was for the congregation of the Lord, and it should be the voice of every local church especially in this...
The Partial and the Perfect This should help us. If we turn anywhere else for answers, we’ll be hurting. We have it, but we must accept what God says for things to look better. I Corinthians 13:9 “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done...

For Ye Serve the Lord Christ Here is detailed how we are to be with each other; it’s how we serve the Lord A to Z. At first glance it may be too obvious to say “for ye serve the Lord Christ.” It’s easy to say “I’m saved. I’m a Christian. I serve the Lord.” Paul wants us to consider how we serve the Lord. Colossians...
Unless I Had Believed to See David wrote this Psalm about 1,000 years before Paul wrote Philippians. Paul was in Rome behind bars. David was getting slammed from every direction. He said he would have  fainted, or thrown in the towel. Then he thought about God’s goodness. David discovered something because he faced life with...
The verse you know by heart….OR do you? “John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Most of us read and know it by heart, yet many times we get turned around and can’t think of it. It’s one of the most familiar verses in history....
