A wish, expression, or gift for the wellbeing of another. It can become an act in favor of the one being blessed. Ezekiel 34:26 says, “I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing” (NASB […]

What comes to your mind when you think of home? Is it where you live or where you were born or where you were raised? I personally think of home as where I was raised, and yes I was born there as well. Home has a very sentimental value to it, don’t you think? How […]

As I was teaching the Sunday School lesson this past Sunday, I mentioned how James tells us in James 5:7, that we’re to be patient “…until the coming of the Lord.” We hear that often, don’t we? Today we use the term, “just around the corner” when we refer to something about to happen. I’ve […]

Life is full of decisions. We make them every day. We decide whether we want or need to get up in the morning. We decide whether we want to eat breakfast or grab something to snack on. We decide what we are going to wear today. These are just a few of the decisions we […]

I’ve heard it said many times, “the pastor has the easiest job!” Well that depends on what you’re referring to as a job. As a retired pastor myself, I never looked at my position of pastor as a job, even though I was paid for doing it. The position of pastor is a calling. And […]

“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance.” (1 Peter 1:14) A fellow student I worked with while attending Bible college was deep into evangelism and enjoyed sharing Christ regularly and at any opportunity that presented itself. Oftentimes he was quick to share with me the […]

This year Mother’s Day will be on Sunday May 13, 2018. Although my mother is no longer living with us and is at home with our Lord in Heaven, not a Mother’s Day goes by that I don’t think of her and also my wife. Even though my wife is not my mother, she is […]
God Knows, Even Before We Ask!

Yes, you are right. God does know what we need, before we even ask. God tells us in Matthew 6:8, “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” But in the next verses He tells us to pray for our needs. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 God commands us to pray continually. That means […]
