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

Manic Monday

Show me Your Glory Lord Moses said, “Please show me your glory. Exodus 33:18 ESV Pastor Mac mentioned yesterday in his sermon that he wants to see God’s glory. What do you ask God for? I ask him for things that are important to me, but a lot of my prayers are selfish. I ask…

Manic Monday

Be Needed, Not Needy Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:3-5 ESV If you were not…

Manic Monday

Is Jesus Worth it? By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was…

Not Knowing God

Why don’t you know what you need to know about God? Why do you know more about dancing cats, disastrous stunt crashes, or divorcing celebrities than you know about the God of the universe? Why do you think that simply knowing there is a God is all you need to know about God? Did you…

Freedom Fundamentals

One of the messiest times in the Bible was when “Every man did that which was right in his own sight” and individual freedom turned into collective chaos. In our present PC Society where “someone” (no one seems to know who) constantly changes the definition of what is right or wrong it is important to…

Manic Monday

God’s Church Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. Acts 20:28 ESV As we go into 2018 I am excited about what God is up to here at Lebanon. With…

Christmas Means

Christmas means Joy: The Psalmist proclaimed In His Presence is Fullness of Joy” and he longed for that presence. Christmas means God became flesh and dwelled among men and we beheld His Glory as God changed from a faraway deity into a present with us Savior! No wonder we celebrate with such Joy. Christmas means…

A Baby Cried

For four hundred years God remained silent. Disease, war, and despair devastated the earth. World changing empires rose and fell. Israel again slipped into the bondage oppression of a foreign power and the people of God once again cried for God to show Himself and bring relief. But days passed into years as no new…

Manic Monday

The Father’s Will Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! Psalms 143:10 ESV With 2017 winding down I am reflecting on this past year. I always strive to do better in all that I do, especially in ministry. My reasoning is because I…

Don’t Blame Christmas

I think most people will admit that Christmas has gotten out of control. It has evolved from a time of worshipping a babe in Bethlehem into a time when we feed our greeds, are overwhelmed with stressful needs, and overdo our feeds. It has backpedaled so far into October until many people have had about…
