Blessed is the Servant

“Luke 12:43  “Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when He comes.” Many things could be said about this verse which could make an impact on how we serve the Lord. But the blessing that comes from serving is what I would like to mention here. There is a state of…

VBS

This week is our VBS. I can’t tell you how many hours have been put into getting this activity ready. I really can’t because I would have to count by days if not months. This is one of the church activities that involves every age group and every talent regardless of how good or bad…

When I think about the phrase,“ I’ll see you soon”, it makes me think that I hope to see that person again. It is a sad phrase when you have to let go of someone you love and care about. But you know there is a possibility that your paths will meet again. When Jesus…

Christian Training part II

As you know much of our Christian training has to be done by us. When we are hurting we tend to quit or not practice Christian training. It is easy to let go when we are hurting. It is easy to say this can wait for another day.  Everyday someone is going to hurt us.…
