Sorrow Is Better Than Laughter Some of us experience this every day and especially this time of year.  Even though it’s been years since some close to me passed away, I still think of them every day. We’ve had many in our church go on in the last few years and it is hard on us.  We miss them still.  We’ve been through a lot...
In Remembrance of Me Mark 14: 22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. 23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament,...
Church Is For Kids Matthew 21: 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made...

The Receptive Walk Paul instructed the church at Colossae but we don’t know how this church turned out.  We know the churches were losing their first love.  We see our responsibility as Christians, those who have received Jesus Christ. Colossians 2: 5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit,...
Hastening and Lingering This speaks to our moment in history.  There’s a hastening spirit.  There’s urgency in the air.  The longer time passes by, the stronger it gets.  The response, by and large, is like Lot and his family—lingering.  The Lord won’t delay judgment. It’s been appointed to all that we’ll die...
Praise the Lord Psalms 146:1Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. 2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. 3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that...
Are Your Troubles Worth the Worry? We can’t control trouble.  Sometimes we bring it on ourselves but sometimes it just comes.  Job said Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.  We’re a fallen race in a corruptible body.  Troubles happen at all ages.  An old preacher used to say “the past was never as...
The Gathering on Calvary’s Hill Luke records the crucifixion.  Everyone’s attention was on three crosses, but the eyes of most were on the center cross where Jesus, the Son of God, hung.  There were any number of things people could have done that day but they were drawn to the hill with an irresistible drawing. God is drawing...
