Do you think that with the Republicans in control of the Senate and the House, that our country will be run any differently than it has been?

Just a Thought: Examine Your Heart

Just a Thought: Going from a demonized state to deliverance, we see a terrible story with a happy ending. Well sort of. Luke takes us on a journey with Jesus to a place where we meet a man under the control of demons so much so that he has become wild, hopelessly and helplessly a prisoner of Satan’s power. That is until he meets Jesus. We see here that even the one who is severely dominated by the demonic is not out of the reach of the delivering power of Jesus. When the man meets Jesus, Jesus cast the ...

Examine your heart

Jesus. Jesus. You say it. Say it again. Say it out loud and repeat His name several times. The old Gaither song is right, there is just something about that name. “Master, Savior, like the springtime after the rain…” It is the name we call upon for salvation. It is the name we call upon for cleansing of sin. It is the name we call upon in times of fear. And it is the name we call upon to strengthen our faith. Jesus knows our deepest secrets, He knows our greatest struggles, He knows the things that shake our foundation ...

Stephens: Miracles still happen, at times in new ways

Decades had come and gone, and for Russ McElveen it seemed that there were important people in his family he would never see again.

Just a thought: All you do

What difference do you make to the Kingdom work God is doing around you? Some may feel they don’t contribute much, but let’s remember all the members of the body are essential for the body to function properly. Just because you don’t preach or teach doesn’t mean you’re unimportant. If you are serving God, using your spirit given gifts and serving for the honor and glory of God, you are essential! When you consider the ministry of Jesus, it is easy to focus on those out in front such as Jesus and the disciples. But ...

Beloved, Be Loving

“Dearly Beloved…” That’s the way I started out my last wedding sermon. I know it’s a little bit of a throwback. We don’t call too many people “beloved” anymore, but I hope you know what I mean. Today, I want to think about why that’s a perfect way to greet one another…”beloved”.

In doubt

What a prison self consciousness can be. When I think of those “would be” Christians if they could just find someone to express the love of God and acceptance to them. In Luke 7, we read the story of a self-righteous Pharisee who invites Jesus to dinner and an encounter with a prostitute. (Odd mix I know) but it is kind of like Christians in the world with judgmental spirits or worse how sinners are made to feel (if) or when they walk into the church building. You have heard people say, “Well if I went to church the ceiling ...
