Pulpit Minister (Page 7)

Forgiveness

5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7 but if we…

Job’s Lesson

Job had some questions for God. The majority of his book is an argument between Job and his friends about what God was doing or not doing, and what he should be doing. Job thought he had a pretty good case for himself, and he longed for the opportunity to stand face to face with…

Nehemiah

Nehemiah built a wall. The wall became a highly charged political thing. Those opposed to the wall ridiculed those who were building it, made fun of their work, fought against it to get rid of the workers, lied about the intent and motivation for the wall being built and even pretended to want to have…

Clean

The holidays are always nice, with each year filled with its own special memories.   But it sure is nice to get everything put away, normal things put back in place and have the house back to normal and clean.

Election Day

Today is election day. Today we choose the leadership of our country for the next few years. Before He ever created anything, God elected, determined to bless all humanity in Jesus the Christ. He chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In Christ, we…

My Vote

My vote is important to me. My vote is not a statement of personal like nor dislike for either candidate. Several factors enter into the making of my decision as to whom to vote for. But two are key. The first is the oath of office. The oath for the office of president of the…

BRB

I had been receiving a series of texts from my fellow ministers and elders. Thinking I was done with the texts, I decided to end the link. As you may know, the Iphone has now made it possible to quickly respond to texts through a list of premade responses included in the phone. I have…
