Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Gas Man Gas

I pulled up at a gas station recently and noticed that a gas delivery truck was getting gas at the pump beside me. The gas man was getting gas! Gas trucks are something we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about. We assume gas just gets to the pumps so we can purchase and use…

Godly Counsel Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:22‬ ‭ESV‬‬ I am blessed to work with a group of people who truly want to do the will of God. They can bring a different perspective on what could look like a hopeless or failed situation. It is good to talk things…

Driveway Disappointment

Six year old Timmy looked at his parents one day and said, “I know exactly what I want for Christmas this year. A New Car!” The parents said, “Fine” and added “new car” to Timmy’s Christmas list. Christmas day arrived and Timmy rushed past the presents piled under the tree and into the yard where…

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 This weekend while at the Carolina Opry I heard one of my favorite songs. Faith Hill sings it beautifully… “A Baby Changes Every Thing”. Emotion just rushed over me while the song…

Prayer Barriers

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24) Can this verse really be in scripture?

Gratitude

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). The cute little girl ran up to her granddad with open arms. The granddad leaned down and welcomed his grandchild into his arms for a great big “bear hug”. Nestled in…

Christian Citizens

The best contribution anyone can make to meet the needs of this world is to live a Christian life, build a Christian home, and radiate the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. [Adapted from a quote by John Stott in “Basic Christianity”] How succinctly he describes the three main duties of a Christian who…

Manic Monday

I’ve been listening to the song “How He Loves.” It starts by saying “He is jealous for me.” I just want to remind you that He loves you! Despite our daily failures, walking away from Him to pursue our on desires… He loves us! He loves us like we’ve never done anything wrong. There are…

Bushel Believers

Far too many Christians have become “bushel believers”: No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. Luke 11:33. They hide the light of their relationship with God under the “bushel” of busyness…

Manic Monday

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Colossians‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭ Just focusing on what Mac mentioned in his sermon yesterday…Focus on the Giver and not the gift. I have been focused lately on healing for me…the ringing in my ears, and sharp pains in my right arm. I…
