Be Strong In The Lord

Ephesians 6:10 finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Paul is encouraging Christians to be strong in the Lord. It will be a great thing if you can go back and read all the book of Ephesians, then these words would mean so much more to you.…

Give Me One Good Reason

A long time ago when my daughter was very young she got into trouble for opening presents she wasn’t supposed to. When we found out what she did we talked to her about it and explained why it is important to wait. Being little she heard what we said but did it again. So now…

Love Never Fails

When we love someone, there are somethings that will shine through. Love is one of those things that will show. Love is like a plant. When we care for it; water it, keep it warm and constantly feed it, love will grow. My question is; does our attitudes reflect these? If not, then we need…

Rafting

The college and young professionals went to the Ocoee River in Tennessee to go white water rafting earlier this month. We had a really great time.

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…

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. John is one of my favorite writers. His kind heart and the way he addresses the church make him be the type of person you want to see in church on Sunday. John…
