That Bread. That Cup. I Corinthians 11: 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.25...
The Passing. The Partial. The Perfect. There is a song from the 1970’s that had in its words “today is yesterday’s tomorrow.”  The opposite is true as well.  Today is tomorrow’s yesterday.  These remind us that we should be more mindful to make today count.  The Passing.  The Partial.  The Perfect.  These statements have...
Let Us Now Go to Bethlehem This is our final service before Christmas.  I’d like for all of us to think about thanks and praise to the Lord.  When the shepherds and wise men found the Lord they worshipped him; they gave thanks and praise. Luke 2: 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the...
Joy Was Born Something tremendous, something incredible, something important and wonderful happened 2,000 years ago.  A child was born in Bethlehem, and with this child joy was born. Luke 2: 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.11...

Tears and joy don’t seem to go together, but they do. ...

The Christmas Story–How it Began The book of Luke is dear to us all.  The Lord revealed himself in his nativity in a very detailed manner.  A portion is in Matthew and together with Luke we have as much as God wanted us to know about the first Christmas.  Times were harder than now, but some things are the same.  Herod brought an...
Be Strong, Of Good Courage, and Finish It The gospel is still here.  Jesus still answers prayers.  If we come in faith believing, he will save.  Once saved, Jesus takes care of us; he helps us grow.  Here God encouraged David as he was about to die.  In turn, David encouraged his son.  Be strong, of good courage, and finish it is a direct...
