I have no intention of eulogizing the Former President,” better men than I will do that”. These words that I record today are simply to remind everyone that death is no respecter of persons. As a pastor I have ministered to both wealthy and poor families during times of grief. I can attest that death cares nothing about the status of a person and heartbreak is a common denominator for all people.

The One That Is Lost
Nov 25, 2018 03:29
Ninety-nine sheep are safe. Only one is missing. Outside it is cold and dark. The wolves are howling. It is dangerous to go out. Some shepherds would say, “I have ninety-nine that are safe, I won’t concern myself with the one that is lost.” But not the Good Shepherd. He knows his sheep by name and his heart trembles for the one that is lost.

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart
Nov 19, 2018 03:15
Most of the time when we talk about giving thanks, we make a list of people and things that are currently in our lives. This is as it should be, because we are surrounded by present blessings. However, today I have blessings from the past on my mind.

In the song “God Bless the USA” Lee Greenwood sings, “I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free, and I won’t forget the men who died to give that right to me.” I believe this to be one of the greatest songs of all time. But in honor of all veterans, I would like to change two words. I would like to say, “I won’t forget the Ones who Served to give that right to me.” On Memorial Day, we remember those who died in the service of our nation. Veterans Day however has been set aside to honor all who served and sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Be Still And Know That I Am God
Nov 5, 2018 02:58
People often asked me, “Where do you get the ideas for the devotions that you write?” The short answer is,” God gives them to me.” The long answer however is that I have learned to see the evidence of God in all my surroundings. This forensic evidence confirms the power of His love. Just as with Jeremiah, the proof of God ignites a fire in my soul that cannot be contained. It is my inspiration to write and to preach.
The Bible Says
Oct 29, 2018 03:26
The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. It’s profitable for correction and instruction in righteousness. However, it’s useless if it’s not opened and read. Furthermore it’s dangerous to misquote, quote out of context or tell people the Bible says what it does not say! The sad truth is, many Christians don’t read the Bible. Most of the time when someone tells you what the Bible says they are not quoting Scripture, they are quoting what someone else has said about scripture.
Our God Is An Awesome God
Oct 22, 2018 03:29
Although it may be the best one we have, I realize that the word awesome is inadequate to describe my God. His ways are higher than my ways and His thoughts are higher than my thoughts. My feeble command of the English language cannot do Him justice. So I will borrow these words from an old hymn and say, how marvelous, how wonderful. Indeed how awesome is Jesus Christ my Lord.
Oct 15, 2018 03:26
It is Sunday morning. I’m scheduled to preach in a few hours. I get up early to begin my day with prayer and reading God’s Word. The moon was in the dark stage last night, so as I sit on the back porch with my Bible and a cup of coffee, it is utterly dark outside. The sounds I hear are night sounds. Frogs and bugs are singing the songs that they have been given to sing. Two owls communicate over long distance about their night’s work. As I sit and listen to the night sounds, it occurs to me that the darkest night is part of God’s plan and it is always followed by the rising sun.
The God Who Hears
Oct 7, 2018 03:24
God is the great creator of all things. He is the grand architect of an ever expanding universe. He is The Master and Maker of all living things. He counts the stars in the sky and knows them by name. It is God who holds all authority and nothing is done without His permission. He holds the hearts of all of the rulers of this world in His hands. Those rulers don’t have time for me, but God does. He is my Father in Heaven and He loves to spend time with me.
Our God Reigns
Sep 30, 2018 02:29
Underneath the sun, the people rage and plot vainly against our omnipotent Lord. They imagine they can free themselves from His laws. Corrupt and wicked people conspire to do evil things to God’s righteous ones. Sometimes we feel as though we are being chewed up like bread. We wonder does God hear our prayers. Yes, He hears our prayers. From his throne in heaven, He laughs and ridicules the ones who conspire against Him and His chosen ones. We will prevail because in Heaven our God reigns.
God's Favorite Season
Sep 23, 2018 03:19
Fall must be God’s favorite time of the year. Look around see the weeds that you have fought all year, now doing a yellow victory dance! The leaves have fulfilled there obligation to the trees and now they proclaim God’s glory with a blast of colors. The cool nights make you reach for a blanket and the mild days are fore runners of heavens comfort. And what about the sun. God puts on a brilliant display with the sunrises and sunsets and it seems that even at mid- day the sunlight has a different shade of Glory

Overcoming The Second Law of Thermodymamics
Sep 17, 2018 03:20
When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, he unleashed the second law of thermodynamics upon the world. This law states, that when left alone everything will collapse, breakdown, or wear out. When God created this world it was perfect and incorruptible. The first man Adam, chose to rebel against God and sin entered into the world. The curse of sin brought death and destruction. Therefore, we have to work hard to maintain houses and machines and our bodies or they will deteriorate.
Sep 9, 2018 03:09
Here today and gone tomorrow is our life on this earth. Yes, life is brief but everlasting hope is found in Jesus. In Him we can find the Way we can travel, the Truth we can believe and Life that is eternal. “The Lord is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His acts. The Lord is near to all who call out to Him. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him. He hears their cry for help and saves them. The Lord guards all those who love Him. Let every living thing praise His holy name forever and ever.”
Sep 2, 2018 03:25
Satisfaction is sweet when it comes from a job well done. Sleep comes easy after a hard day’s work. A sweat soaked shirt is a badge of honor that is achieved with honest labor. Food tastes better when you have earned it with your own abilities. Work is a blessing from God. Throughout the Bible we find God honoring and blessing the people who work hard and earn their own food. But in 2 Thessalonians 3 we find God saying that a person who will not work should not eat.
Aug 26, 2018 03:18
God has promised that with a little faith, we can prayerfully move mountains. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, your prayers can bring healing to the sick, salvation to the lost and hope to the hopeless. This is true for all of us who believe in the power of Jesus our Savior. Sometimes in our human frailties, we struggle to believe this. But if we cry out to Jesus, He will help us in our unbelief.
Aug 20, 2018 02:23
A rich young man once asks Jesus how he could enter into Heaven. Jesus told him to sell all he had, give away the proceeds, and follow Him. Sadly, the young man missed Heaven because he could not turn loose of his stuff. Does this mean that riches and wealth are evil? No! It means that we must understand all we have comes from God. If you love your stuff more than you do Jesus, there is no place for you in Heaven. If you don’t have time for God now, He won’t have time for you later.
Aug 13, 2018 02:37
Joseph was his real name, but the Apostles nicknamed him Barnabas because Barnabas means, “Son of Encouragement”. He had the gift of encouragement and used it to inspire people to do their best for God. Even the greatest men in the Bible often needed encouragement. And God used Barnabas to inspire the hearts of at least two of the most important men in the New Testament.

Close to the Master
Aug 6, 2018 03:10
God is our Master. He has promised us that He will never leave or forsake us. And He won’t. But we are prone to wander and be disobedient to the Father who loves us. His grace is sufficient and His Love is everlasting so He sends the thunder. When storms hit in our lives and we call out to God, He will hear us and let us in because He loves us and wants us to feel safe. We can always feel safe when we learn to stay close to the Master
The Thunder Rolls
Jul 30, 2018 03:18
When the lightning flashes and the thunder rolls, I will worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness. I know that the voice of God thunders over the earth and is powerful and full of majesty. His voice speaks with the tenderness of a deer giving birth or the fierceness of an earthquake that brings down great buildings. In his temple everyone shout,” Glory!” The Lord is enthroned as King forever. Our God gives strength to His people forever. The Lord will bless His people with peace forever. For this reason I will always rejoice and praise God when I hear the thunder roll.

My Name Is Written Down
Jul 23, 2018 03:01
People often write things on their hands as reminders. But what they write is temporary, it will only last until they wash their hands. But God will never wash you from His hands. The Bible says that you are inscribed in His hand. That means that your name is not just written, it is carved into His Hand. It is permanent.
Listen to this podcast to hear more about your name being written in the palms of God.
No Reserve, No Retreat, No Regrets
Jul 16, 2018 03:30
The Bible tells us that God’s plans are greater than our plans and His ways are greater than our ways. Bill Borden knew that obedience to God is the only way to be truly successful. His story is a challenge for us to surrender to God with no reserves, to follow Jesus with no retreats and to live in obedience to the Holy Spirit with no regrets.
Listen to this Podcast to here the story of Bill Borden a man who served God with no reserve, no retreats and no regrets.
The Destroyer Of Hopelesness
Jul 12, 2018 02:52
Has hopelessness become a resident in your heart? The loss of a loved one may make you think that life can’t go on. Financial ruin can remove a roof from over your head. A disease diagnoses may put your future in doubt, or a prison sentence can convince you that your life is over. These things can rob you of your will to live and your hope for a miracle. But don’t let your heart drown in despair. The Bread of Life is here now. Jesus says; rise up and eat. So rejoice in the Lord and find joy in the God of your salvation. In His presence, miracles are possible because He is The Destroyer of Hopelessness.

Red Necks Don't
Jul 9, 2018 03:12
OK, I live in the south. I ask the blessing over my food and I say y’all. When I see my friend I ask him,” how’s your Momanem” and when a strange dog comes in my yard I holler, “gitonoutahere”. I am not afraid of hard work and I have a perfect farmers tan. The culturally elite sneer at me and call me a redneck. But I am not offended, because I am proud of my southern heritage.
Freed For Freedom
Jun 30, 2018 03:44
Long before the creation of Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, there were brave men who stood on truth, believed in justice and invented the American Way. These great men were the signers of the Declaration of Independence. These men were not bullet proof, but they were willing to face a hail of bullets for the sake of freedom. They firmly relied on the Protection of Divine Providence as they pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor in support of the Declaration of Independence.
Jun 24, 2018 02:57
It is my belief that most people don’t care what the church looks like or where it is located. They don’t really care if the sermons are colorful or entertaining. What people want, what people need is sustenance. A church that provides the Holy nutrients that are needed to live and raise a family will be a growing church.
Jun 17, 2018 03:11
A daddy's heart is big. It has to be. It has to be big enough to hold strength, courage, wisdom and gentleness. A daddy needs to be brave enough to kill spiders and strong enough to open jars. He must be smart enough to fix a bicycle and gentle enough to eat imaginary cookies. A daddy's heart has the wisdom to let little hands do what they can and knows when to help and when not to help. Most daddies don't know how big their heart is, but it is big enough to love his children with an unending love
Enoch's Walk 2018
Jun 15, 2018 03:15
The Bible teaches "Children are a heritage from the LORD. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.” Arrows are made to fly high and fly far. They are also made to fly straight and true. But it is the strength of the archer that bends the bow and launches the arrow. It is the skill of the archer that aims the arrow and hits the target. It is the wise archer who develops arrows to be true and straight.
Jun 13, 2018 03:13
What do you do when the world draws you away from The Heavenly Father? What do you do when it is dark and you don't know how to get back to Him? Well you call out to Him. You can be sure that He will hear and He will answer your call. In Psalms 141:1 we read; “LORD, I cry out to You; Make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You.”
If you find yourself separated from God and it is dark just keep calling out to Him and He will keep answering you. You will never forget the sound of His voice as it leads you home.
What If We Knew the Number of Our Days
Jun 11, 2018 02:50
The writer of Psalms prayed “Lord, make me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, so that I may know how frail I am." (Psalm 39:4) I have a feeling that if you knew the measure of your days, then your favorite TV show would go unwatched and you would not care who won the ballgame. Instead it is likely that time spent with family, friends and loved ones would become very precious. And time spent on our knees before God would become absolutely essential. So, what if you knew the number of your days
Praise God Anyhow
Jun 4, 2018 02:48
In Philippians 4:11 the Apostle Paul tells us that he had learned to be content in whatever state he found himself in. Paul knew that no matter what he faced in life that God was good and greatly to be praised. So let us learn to be content in whatsoever state we find ourselves in. In good times or bad, in comfort or pain, in sickness or health let us lift our hearts to heaven and praise God anyhow.
Remember And Never Forget
May 26, 2018 03:51
Abraham Lincoln once said, “Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.” As Christians, we must honor Jesus who gave His life that we might live. As Americans, we must honor those who died that we might live in freedom. On Memorial Day we are reminded to always remember and never forget that our God given rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness have been sealed by the blood of many great American heroes.
Get Up And Walk Into The World
May 21, 2018 03:13
Jesus is asking us today, “Do you want to be made well?” For as long as I can remember I have heard Christians talk about the need for revival. Myself and other pastors have dreamed of a great spiritual awakening. Congregations all over the world are wondering how they can keep their sick churches from dying. Meanwhile we go into our buildings, pull the doors closed behind us, and hope for a supernatural movement to stir the waters.
Mothers Day 2018
May 12, 2018 03:08
It does not matter who you are, what you do or how much money you make if you honor your mother she will be proud of you.
How do you love your mother? With all your heart. Love her in such a way that she will be thankful for all the time she invested in you all the money she sacrificed for you.
Remember whoever you are you owe a lifetime of love to your mother.
You Were made to Thrive 2018
May 7, 2018 04:26
For all of who are graduating from school I want to say congratulations and God bless you. I hope you know that the God of all creation made you to thrive and to accomplish great things. I Challenge you to find the high hill that God has for you and then go climb it.
Do not let the world form you in its image. A habit of great people is that they do not imitate mediocre people. The Bible says;“Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate," (2 Cor 6:17) If you are going to thrive you have to stand out from the world. If you are going to impact the world you have to refuse to blend in with the world. Eagles don’t roost with chickens and chickens don’t soar high above the world. You were made to soar. Here are some things you must know if you are going to stand out from the world
God The Inconsiderate One
Apr 30, 2018 02:10
Some people ask, “Is it safe to follow God”? And I answer “no”! This very inconsiderate God I serve has said to His Children, “Take up your cross, and follow me.” The very idea of a cross speaks of danger. So, no, God is not safe, but safety is entirely overrated anyway
Don't Miss The Boat
Apr 23, 2018 03:23
Many people have a picture of the Noah’s ark as being a small boat crammed with animals. That is wrong. The ark was a huge barge like boat. It was designed to survive the most terrifying storm in history. It had no means of propulsion nor did it have a rudder. It was powered and guided by the Creator of the universe. The most amazing fact of all is that when the rain came the Ark was not crowded; it was only about one third full.
More Today Than Yesterday
Apr 16, 2018 02:42
On April 16th, 1978 I nervously stood in front of the altar at Stinchcomb Methodist Church. When the doors swung open a beautiful girl stepped through and walk down the aisle to take my hand. The preacher asked us to promise to love each other until death did us part. We both said we would and he pronounced us man and wife.
The Aftermath Of Easter
Apr 9, 2018 03:31
Often people will say they do not believe that a loving God will send anyone to hell. They are absolutely right. God does not want anyone to perish. He wants everyone to come to Him and be saved. That is why He allowed His Son to be crucified. Jesus did not come into this world to condemn anyone. He came so that everyone would have the possibility of salvation. Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven. He wants you to choose to follow Him. If you decide not to trust Him, then you have made the choice not to go to Heaven.
We Might As Well Go Home He's Dead
Mar 31, 2018 03:09
Two disciples were very disappointed in this Man named Jesus. They thought He was going to use His power to overthrow the Romans, restore the kingdom of David and set them free. But He did not do things the way they thought He should. And now He’s dead. So they said, “ it’s over we might as well go home.
Mar 26, 2018 03:01
What are we here for someone asked? Well, we are here to see Jesus, the Messiah. He is going to be the national Liberator. That is why we wave these palm branches. You see Jesus is going to save us from the Romans. The people who were enjoying this parade the most understood it the least. I believe Jesus had tears flowing from His eyes that day because these people were looking for the wrong thing
Everbody Is a Somebody To Jesus
Mar 19, 2018 03:54
Today I hope you hear about Jesus. I hope you will push through the crowd and reach out for Him. Have faith only in Jesus. He will stop everything to reach out to the ones the world ignores. Everybody is somebody to Him. The Bible tells us that God is rich in mercy. Because of His great love, even when we are nobody and dead in our sin He makes us somebody who is alive in Christ. Wow, look at the love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Anybody can reach out to Jesus because everybody is somebody to Him.
The Making Of A Righteous Man
Mar 12, 2018 03:08
Maybe the thought of groveling at the feet of Jesus seems unpleasant to you. If so, then remember that the Bible says you should, clothe yourselves with humility because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore under God’s mighty hand, that He May lift you up in due time. It was humility that made Jairus righteous and you can be sure that the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous. His ears are attentive to their prayers.
The Journey To Knowledge
Mar 5, 2018 03:23
Don’t be satisfied to learn only from preachers and teachers. Take time to ponder the Word for yourself. Slow down and meander thru the pages of the Bible. The world will tell you what to think, but Jesus wants you to know how to think. That is why it is the journey to knowledge that is most important, because it is in the journey that you gain wisdom. Knowledge without wisdom is foolishness.
Great Is Your Reward In Heaven
Feb 26, 2018 02:38
You are blessed when you are persecuted for righteousness’ sake. This world is not your home. The people who are at home in this world will always hate God’s servants. In this world you will be abused and harassed. People will always report evil lies about you. However through it all you can find joy and great happiness because yours is the Kingdom of Heaven. You are truly blessed because great is your reward in Heaven.
The Gates Of Hell Will Not Prevail
Feb 19, 2018 02:58
Jesus Christ is the only one who can deliver us from evil. Because of the mercy that He has shown to us, we are indebted to share our hope with our neighbors. We must never be ashamed of His Gospel because it is the power of God for salvation. He has built us into a mighty Church and against His Church the gates of Hell cannot prevail.
More to Come
Feb 12, 2018 02:56
Now, God never promised His children that every day would be good. But if we trust Him, we will find that everyday God is good. As a child of God, we have only seen the beginning. We don’t know how we will end up! Our eyes cannot see, our ears cannot hear and our hearts cannot understand the fullness that God has for His children. We know that faith is the essence of things hoped for and the certainty of things not seen. It is our faith in Jesus that fills our empty hearts and guarantees us that there is “More to Come”!
An Old Fruit Tree
Feb 5, 2018 03:08
The steps of this good man had been ordered by the Lord. All his life he had been delighted to walk in the Way. Once he had been young but now he is old. Often he had fallen but he had never been cast down. In his righteousness, he had never been forsaken because he was like a tree that was planted by the rivers of water. In the stillness, he tasted the goodness of God’s Love and he was glad to sit in the shade of the old fruit tree.
Who Are You To Judge
Jan 29, 2018 03:14
Here is a question. Is there anyone whose crimes and sins seem so horrendous to you, that you think they deserve to go to hell? Would you refuse to pray for or share God’s truth with that person out of fear that they might be saved? If so, you would choose to condemn someone else to hell. The Bible says in Romans 2:1 “ you are inexcusable, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself.”
His Name Was Alan
Jan 22, 2018 03:04
Jesus commanded us to go into all the world and make disciples. Alan and Barnabas probably never consider themselves disciple makers, but they were. Neither of them ever led a weekly discipleship group. But they both taught many to walk in paths of righteousness for the sake of the good name of Jesus.
Jan 15, 2018 02:55
Jesus tells us in the Book of Matthew that we should take His yoke upon ourselves. When He says this, He means that He wants us to work along side Him in the Father’s business. Jesus’ yoke is easy because He is the one carrying the load. When He allows us to walk with Him, it is not because He needs us but because He loves us and wants us by His side. Put your hand in His hand and you will find that He is working on you, making your soul fit for His kingdom
Jan 8, 2018 03:35
God is a giver of Grace. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.” God the Father with His Marvelous Grace is saying to everyone “Come with Me and all I have will be yours. I will be your Father and you will be My child. And you will never be homeless again.”
The Incredible Journey
Dec 31, 2017 03:14
I hope you have a blessed and happy New Year. It is my prayer that in the days to come you will cling to God’s promises. No matter what your incredible journey brings, may you always find peace in the presence of our Lord.
The Aftermath of Christmas
Dec 27, 2017 03:37
Christmas is a hard time of the year for many people. If that includes you then My heart goes out to you. But be encouraged, you may be disappointed at Christmas time but you will never be disappointed with Christ. As our Savior He gives us hope, as our Messiah He gives us peace, as our Lord He gives us comfort and as our King He gives us the victory. And please don’t forget that Jesus brings joy to the world and joy to you and me.
Jake Reads the Christmas Story
Dec 21, 2017 03:38
Jake my eight year old Grandson reads the Christmas Story. It is my prayer that as we celebrate the birth of Jesus we will do so with the wonder of a child. Merry Christmas From Down Where The Pavement Ends
Son Of God Son Of Man
Dec 18, 2017 02:55
Unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given. A tiny baby was born, a Royal Son was given. For those who will receive Him, His name is Prince of Peace. His government is everlasting and His peace will never end. It will be ordered and established with judgement and justice, from this time forward and forever.
Peace on Earth 2017
Dec 15, 2017 03:22
Christmas is about hope. The soldier, the mother, the policeman and the preacher all hope and pray for the same thing. We all hope and pray for the same thing. So like the angels let this be our song, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.
From Down Where the Pavement Ends
Dec 11, 2017 02:52
God with us, what does it mean? The real question is what does it mean to God? You must understand everything revolves around Him. He will not attach Himself to your plan for your life; instead he offers you the opportunity to attach yourself to His plans. His plans are higher and greater than ours. Our ways are at best mediocre, His ways are meteoric.
The King is Coming
Dec 4, 2017 03:06
The day of the Lord is coming soon, but we don’t know when. Therefore, we should live every day at peace with God confessing our sins and living righteously for Him. Understand this, every day that passes without His returning is another opportunity for us to share the Hope of salvation with our neighbor. The promise was made and the promise will be kept, Jesus Christ will return in all His glory. So let us rejoice, because soon and very soon we are going to see the King.
The Christmas Tree and Three Rusty Nails
Nov 27, 2017 03:18
This Christmas season, as we navigate the hubris of flying reindeer, jolly old elves and a little drummer boy let’s not forget the true meaning of Christmas. Let the beautiful lights reminds us that Jesus is the Light of the world and the evergreen trees shall symbolize our hope of eternal life. Underneath the trees will be beautifully wrapped gifts, but the greatest gift of all was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Nov 20, 2017 02:37
The Bible teaches that we are to rejoice always, because there is always joy to be found in Jesus. We should pray without ceasing, because we have a God who never ceases to listen to our prayers. In everything we can give thanks, because God is victorious over all things.
Be Strong In The Lord
Nov 13, 2017 02:55
The murders in a small church in Texas were heartbreaking and terrifying. But they only scratch the surface in this war that the Bride of Christ is called to fight. Satan is our enemy. He leads an army of reprobates in an attempt to stop God’s people. Homosexuals, abortionist, socialist and anarchist are following their father the devil in his attempt to destroy families and churches. But the battle belongs to our Lord, Jesus Christ, and we stand in the power of His might.
Nov 6, 2017 02:28
Jesus is the Son of Man who came to seek and save the lost. He is looking up at you on your limb and saying, “Come on down I want to go to your house today.” If you will receive Him, He will bring salvation to your house. Then you can quince your thirst with His living water, satisfying your hunger with the Bread of Life and rest your weary head on His gentle shoulder.
It Is Good
Oct 30, 2017 02:35
It is good to go up on a mountain sometimes, because down here the world looks pretty messed up. Wars and rumors of wars and the wickedness of man make this world look hopelessly bad. But on the mountain you can see the world as God sees it. He has said, I am God and I change not. Because He does not change God the Father still says, “It is good".
Listen to this podcast and find encouragement in our unchanging God.
Oct 23, 2017 03:18
The next time you see a falling leaf let it remind you of the truth that Jesus died on the cross, not so that you could continue in sin but so that you could be rescued from your sin. Also, the next time you see a leaf being cast to the ground let it remind you that unconfessed sin will cause many to be cast into the pit of hell. And that is truth whether you like it or not.
Oct 16, 2017 03:35
Through the years there have been a lot of things that I would have liked for God's people to know about the pastoral position. But I never felt comfortable teaching these things because I was afraid that as a pastor it would have appeared to be self-serving. I always wished that someone else had at some time in the past taught these truths.
Now that I am not the pastor of a church I can teach these truths without appearing self- serving. This devotion is taking from a message in which I teach about what God would have you to know about the office of the pastor. Please listen and then go and honor your pastor.
I am available for speaking engagements and would love to share the message about,
"What God Wants a Church To Know About Their Pastor"
The Only Thing Worth Living For
Oct 10, 2017 03:45
life is but a vapor here today and gone tomorrow. We can do nothing about that. But we can live our lives in such away that one day when we stand before the God of Eternity, He will say to us, “Well done good and faithful servant!” and that my friends is the only thing worth living for!
Close Enough To Perfect For Us
Oct 2, 2017 03:19
My Mama, will be the first to tell you that she is not perfect. Never having much money, but raising nine children who always felt like they were rich, could only be done with love from an almost perfect heart. Because of my Mama’s love and prayers, all of her children grew up to love Jesus. She also taught Sunday School for years and years. Hundreds of children learned about Jesus because Mama always had a perfect love for Him and the little ones He loved.
Please listen to this podcast, in it I honor my Mamma on her eightieth birthday.
What Really Matters
Sep 25, 2017 02:44
The Bible teaches that one day, “the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” The Bible also says that we should seek first the Kingdom of Heaven. The truth is there is no profit to be had in all the gold in the world. It is only the treasure that you lay up in Heaven that really matters.
Sep 18, 2017 02:38
Remember this, the earth will shake, the fires will rage and storms will roar but God is always in control. He doesn't always calm our storms but He does always care for His children.
Finding Hope in Nothing
Sep 11, 2017 03:10
The greatest nothing of all was found that Sunday morning when the ladies went to the tomb to anoint the dead body of Jesus. The stone was rolled away and when they looked inside they saw, Nothing! He was not there. He is alive! He has defeated death, hell and the grave and Nothing could hold Him down. Nothing can rise against Him and prosper. Nothing is more powerful than God and nothing is more beautiful than His Majesty. On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, Nothing is as solid as Jesus.
Failure Is Not An Option
Sep 5, 2017 02:40
There is a spiritual battle for the hearts and minds of the church. This battle is in the local church but not for the local church. The battle is for the people that God gave His Son to save. We should know we are losing the battle when we center our attention on the church and not the people that we are called to evangelize.
A Day Well Wasted
Aug 28, 2017 03:16
I spent the day of August, 21 2017 with two young men that I love with all my heart. The Total Eclipse was awesome, but seeing it with Kent and Jake made it a million times more special. Together we wasted a day and watched as the heavens declared the Glory of God. It was a day well wasted.
More Than a Conqueror
Aug 21, 2017 02:41
The Bible tells us that a child of God is more than a conqueror. What does it mean to be more than a conqueror? Well, a person who is more than a conqueror knows that the fight is fixed and he cannot lose. As they enter the battle they know that they can be wounded and injured and there will be times when they are frightened and discouraged. And yet we are more than a conqueror because we have the assurance that whoever is born again has already overcome the world. Our hope is in Christ and He has already made us victorious.
The Race, A Sequel
Aug 14, 2017 03:13
Many people start out to follow Jesus, but the road to eternal life is narrow and difficult. Along the way most people will stumble and fall. Many will be lost unless someone is willing to be there for them. Will you be a Barnabas? When someone falls, will you help them up, when someone fails, will you give them another chance, and if someone is going in the wrong direction will you show them the right way.
The challenge in this podcast is for Christians to help their brothers and sisters when they stumble.
Aug 8, 2017 02:52
Walking with Jesus is I like a marathon and not a sprint. Many people profess to be followers of Christ but starting the race is not the same as finishing the race. The Apostle Paul taught us that to follow Christ requires endurance and perseverance. In Hebrews 12 he tells us that we should “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that is set before us, always looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith”. If we are going to receive the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus we must forget those things which are behind us and press on. If you fight the good fight and keep the faith, then you will hear the applause of Heaven as you finish your race.
A Man After God's Own Heart
Jul 31, 2017 03:36
The Bible teaches that we are to go into all the world making disciples and teaching them about Jesus. When God asked, “ who will go for me.” Jack McVeigh answered and said,” Here am I Lord, send me.” He was given the power of the Holy Spirit, and through the lives of the many people that he reached with the Gospel Brother Jack has truly gone into the whole world making disciples.
In this podcast I honor my friend and mentor, a man who truly is " A Man After Gods Own Heart".
I Am What I Was Made To Be
Jul 28, 2017 03:38
God in his wisdom has made us diverse. It is our differences that give us our individual value to the Kingdom of Heaven. Even though we all have different talents and abilities, we must understand that our greatest asset to God is our faithfulness.
It's July In Georgia and It's Hot
Jul 24, 2017 02:42
The Great Engineer of The Universe says in Genesis chapter eight, “As long as the earth endures, seed-time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.” When I go to gather my tomatoes and have to wipe the sweat from my face, I will give glory to God because the sweat of my brow is a testimony that His promises will never fail.
Think Before You Pray
Jul 21, 2017 03:29
Most of the songs that we sing in church are prayers. A song we sang in church yesterday was no different. In the first verse the prayer was for righteousness and in the second verse the prayer was for holiness. These are good things to pray for, but the third verse had this prayer in it, it said: brokenness is what I pray for”. It was then that I stopped singing, and I asked myself why anyone would ever pray for brokenness. Do you understand what you are asking for?
Beauty and Protection in The Presence of The Lord
Jul 17, 2017 02:11
God is my reward, my cup overflows with His blessings. He holds my life, my future in His hands. His surveyors have drawn the boundary lines for my inheritance, it is a beautiful and pleasant place.
Psalms 16 is the inspiration for this podcast, please listen and be encouraged.
A Boy Prays for His Daddy
Jul 14, 2017 03:12
In this podcast i confess that in the past i have self-righteously judge peoples prayers because i perceived them to be theologically incorrect.
But God does not hear the prayers that are formulated in our heads, He hears the prayers that come from our hearts.
Jul 11, 2017 02:11
We cannot manage time. But we can learn to make better use of our energies and activities. The important thing is to prioritize. Decide what matters most and do not waste time on that which does not matter. Take a couple of minutes to listen to this podcast, in it I challenge you to consider how precious time is.
Jul 8, 2017 02:15
Ordinary men become extraordinary men when they follow God and fulfill their destiny.
A Nation Founded On The Gospel of Christ
Jul 3, 2017 03:25
Everyone knows that Patrick Henry said, “Give me liberty or give death”. But did you know that he also said,” It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was not founded, by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” These words bear witness to the fact that our Founding Fathers knew that this nation could survive only if she stood on the solid rock that is Christ Jesus.
Jun 30, 2017 02:57
We are a great nation and a great people today because we have carried forward the spirit of the Declaration of Independence; and we must demand that we truly will be a “government of the people, by the people and for the people.
The Number Of Our Days
Jun 27, 2017 03:09
What if you knew the day of your death? How would you spend your time. In this podcast I challenge everyone to live their lives as if today might be your last. Because after all we are not promised tomorrow.
Speak Lord, Your Servant is Listening
Jun 23, 2017 02:39
I remember hearing an old preacher say, “If you are reading the Bible to learn about God, Stop it! This old preacher was teaching that we should not read scripture in order to learn about God; instead we should read His Word in order to rest in His presence. Like the Disciple whom Jesus loved we should lean on His breast and listen to His heart.
In this podcast I challenge you to be like Samuel and say; " Speak Lord your servant is listening".
Jun 19, 2017 02:37
In this podcast I discuss the fact that Jesus never intended to give people what they wanted. Therefore by today's standard He was a failure. Jesus called on people to give up all they have to follow Him. That is not a good strategy for growing a church. but it is the only strategy for giving new life to dying sinners.
Jun 17, 2017 03:15
The Word of God is clear. It is the responsibility of daddy to train up a child in the way he should go. A father should encourage his children to fly high and fly far but he also must teach them to fly straight and true. This is a terrifying responsibility because, the truth is unless he trust in God no man has the strength, the skill or the wisdom that children need from their daddy.
Therefore the challenge is for every daddy to be like Enoch and to become known as a man who walks with God.
Jun 12, 2017 03:30
The great desire of Jesus is to rescue the lost one. The great longing of the Father is to have fellowship with all men. The great purpose of the Holy Spirit is to empower us to shine the light of Salvation into all the dark cracks and crevices so that those who are lost might be saved. In this podcast I talk about the three parables about lost things that is found in Luke Chapter 15.
The Greatest Generation
Jun 9, 2017 03:17
In this podcast i talk about the need to teach our children to love God with their whole heart and encourage them to make prayer their constant source of strength. If we do this, then I predict that the next generation will become the "Greatest Generation".
The Touch Of the Masters Hand
Jun 5, 2017 02:46
As I sit and commune with God, my dog pesters me for attention. She stands on my left nudging my hand begging me to pet her. When I ignore her she goes to the other side and nudges my right hand. If I continue to ignore her she comes around in front of me and plops her big head down on top of my Bible. When I push her back and continue to read she lies down at my feet to wait until I decide to pay attention to her.
Just Three Years
Jun 2, 2017 02:57
The salvation of many souls may depend on your obedience to The Great Commission. We must follow the example of Jesus. Satan will try to distract you, just put him behind you. Family members and religious leaders may not understand you, but don't let that hinder you. Pray a lot, sleep when you need to, always be about the Fathers business and never stop until God says “It is finished”.
The Mighty Men Of Valor
May 29, 2017 03:50
Honoring the Mighty Men of Valor who sacrificed so much in defense of our country.
May 26, 2017 03:31
2,302,280. If google is correct, this is the approximate number of American Soldiers who have died in the service of their country. These are the ones we honor on Memorial Day. Now this may shock you but listen carefully; the sacrifices of these great heroes were not made in defense of our freedoms! In the Oath of Enlistment, every American soldier swears to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and to bear faith and allegiance to the same. You see, these many sacrifices have been made for a document. Oh, but what a document it is.
A Voice In The Wilderness
May 22, 2017 02:40
John the Baptist. He wrote no epistles and none of his sermons were preserved for us to read. And yet Jesus said that there was never a greater prophet than John the Baptist. But when they asked John who he was he said of himself, " I am just a voice crying in the wilderness".
May 19, 2017 04:26
This is a repeat from last year about this time. it is my advice to those who are graduating from High School. Please listen and share it with a graduate. Thanks
A Higher Education
May 15, 2017 03:18
Every spring high schools graduate into the world a new class of young adults. As these young people toss their hats into the air, very few realize just how much their lives are about to change. They will face new challenges and opportunities. From now on Mama, Daddy and Grandparents will not be there for every decision they make. And that is as it should be. They are adults now and will be responsible for their own choices, the good ones and the bad ones.
Listen to this podcast as i share some thoughts for those of you who will graduate this year
May 12, 2017 02:48
Mamas might think that all they do is wipe bottoms and noses and dry tears, but in reality what Mama is doing is shaping young lives and affecting the future. For this reason, we should all rise up and call our mothers and wives blessed. Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a mother who fears the Lord and loves her family should be praised.
Take a couple of minutes and listen to this podcast in honor of Mother's Day
Religion or Relationship
May 8, 2017 03:18
Religion does not, and cannot save anyone! Religion does not prepare you a place in Heaven, only Jesus can save you and only Jesus can prepare you a home in Heaven! Only a relationship with Christ will save lost souls!
Listen to this podcast in it I talk about the difference between being religious and having a relationship with Jesus Christ.
May 5, 2017 02:02
As I observe the sinful nature of this world sometimes i wonder why God does not just wipe it all out and start all over. But then I realize that He already has. For those of us who have received Christ, old things have passed away and He has made all things new.
Listen to this podcast and be challenged and encouraged by the fact that in Christ we are new creations.
May 1, 2017 02:52
Two ships leave the port. Both ships are headed for a distant land where they plan to be loaded with valuable cargo . The first night out there is a fierce storm. The storm is devastating And only one ship is able to survive. The other one is tossed around by the waves until it is capsized and lost. Why was one ship able to withstand the storm but the other couldn't?
Please take a minute to listen to this podcast In it I talk about the ballast stone we need to help us survive storms
Apr 27, 2017 02:27
Grandchildren, short people who come to visit with old people and turn their lives right side up. I pray that God will hold my grandchildren in the palm of His hands.
The Masters Plan
Apr 24, 2017 02:36
The word righteous means to have a right standing with God or to be good enough. But on our own none of us will ever be good enough. So there is no reason to think that we could ever have eternal life. But God is not a reasonable God. " In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Ain't Gonna Need This House No Longer
Apr 21, 2017 03:38
One day all these buildings that people call churches will rot and burn, they were never meant to be permanent. However The church that is the bride of Christ is built on a firm foundation and will never fail. Christ loves the church and gave Himself for us, He has sanctified and cleanse us and one day we will be presented to Him as a glorious church, holy and without blemish.
Apr 17, 2017 03:20
My God is worthy of all honor and glory and praise. If I never receive anything in return it does not matter, I will worship Him. He is the Creator and Owner of all things and He alone is worthy of all I have. I will save nothing for myself, I will be broken and poured out for My Savior.
He Is Alive
Apr 14, 2017 02:44
The greatest symbol of Christianity is not the cross; it is the empty tomb of our Lord. The Romans killed many people on a cross and their bones are still in the grave. However, the tomb of Jesus is empty. If you look inside you will see that it is saturated with proof that He is alive and He is Lord.
Please take a minute to listen to this podcast and celebrate with me our Risen Savior.
The Magnificence of God
Apr 10, 2017 02:12
On a blustery day I hear the wind howl and watch the tree sway back and forth. When the sun goes down I watch as the sky turns purple and the moon rises, to stand Guard over the night. In the distance a whippoorwill cheers as the stars begin to decorate the purple sky. All of this makes me to wonder; who are we that God would have us on His mind. He made us a little lower than the angels and He has given us a crown of glory and honor.
Get Your House in Order
Apr 7, 2017 02:27
Society is the house we live in and it is in shambles. It does not matter what your age is, you are not promised tomorrow. If you do not want to leave a broken and rundown house behind, do something to improve society today. Remember your loved ones are going to live in this world you leave behind.
Practically Applying Scripture
Apr 3, 2017 03:13
How do you find the practical application of the Bible? In 1Timothy 4:5 Paul says that we should, " Meditate on these things; give yourselves entirely to them, that your progress should be evident to all." To borrow a thought from Charles Stanley, you should learn the lost art of pondering God's Word, mull it over, let it simmer and focus prolonged attention on it. Hard thinking is a crucial piece of becoming more like Jesus.
Mar 31, 2017 01:33
In this month of April, when you sneeze let that sneeze remind you to bless someone. And remember, that we only have eight more months in this year to cover this world with the golden Gospel that brings Hope to this hopeless world.
Mar 27, 2017 02:33
"Cast your cares on Jesus for HE cares for you"
Worrying is a sin because when you worry you tell Jesus that you don't think that He is God enough to handle Your problems.
The devotion in this podcast was written by Jon Courson.
Just Because You Are Old Does Not Mean That You Are Finished
Mar 24, 2017 03:06
In a few days I will have a birthday. I have had a good many of these birthdays. In my years on this earth I have seen a lot and done a lot. But I am not finished yet. There is still a lot more to do and see. I believe that God has said to me, Doug, you are old and advanced in years but you ain't done yet. There is more work to be done, so get up and get busy.
This podcast is a challenge for you not to let old age be an excuse. God is not finished with you so get up and get going.
Jesus on Free Health Care
Mar 20, 2017 02:36
Many people like to surmise what Jesus would do in particular situations. The best thing for us to do however is to open the Bible and see what He actually did do!
In this podcast I talk about how He wants you to follow Him, not for what you can get from Him but because He is Lord.
Mar 17, 2017 03:42
Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Peter denied Jesus because he was afraid. Both men felt shame and regret for what they had done. But the name of Judas will always be synonymous with treachery and deceit while Peter will always be remembered as a saint. What was the difference? In this podcast i talk about the power of forgiveness
Mar 13, 2017 02:56
Somewhere there are veterans who need our help. They have sacrificed greatly for us will we sacrifice even a little for them.
A Bigger Faith
Mar 10, 2017 02:48
A faithful persons mind is always on Christ and these words are always in their heart, " not unto me O Lord, not unto me, but unto You belongs all honor and glory and praise forever and ever,
In this podcast I talk about when the disciples asked Jesus to enlarge their faith.
In The Beginning
Mar 6, 2017 03:34
God is the Creator of all things. He came from no where, He stood on emptiness, and with His Hands took nothing and created everything. He has a plan and a purpose for His creation and I will glorify His Name.
Don't be a Cautious Christian
Mar 3, 2017 02:11
In this podcast I encourage people to do what God tells you to do when HE tells you to do it. The soul that God wants you to impact today may not be around tomorrow. The blessing God has for you today may not be available tomorrow. Just do it, today.
America's Godly History
Mar 2, 2017 02:25
In this podcast I talk about the Godly heritage of America. America is great because America is good. America is good because from the very beginning this country was established by people who worshiped and served Jesus Christ.
Anybody Can Go Back
Feb 27, 2017 03:21
Jesus is the way. Following Him is often difficult and scary. But when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death we need not be afraid. His rod of protection and staff of guidance will give us comfort. One day we will lie down in the green pastures of His love and dwell in the presence of God forever. This is the promise of God for those who refuse to go back from following Christ.
Feb 24, 2017 02:05
The Bible tell us that Elijah had a nature like ours. This means that if we will cover ourselves with the righteousness of God then our prayers can be just as effective as Elijah's.
Jesus Will Not Send You Away
Feb 20, 2017 03:23
Today you have a need that only Jesus can fill. People may try to turn you away, because you bother them. But you don't bother Jesus, so have faith in Him, keep calling out to Him and I promise you Jesus will not send you away.
Please listen to this podcast where encourage you to keep trusting the Savior who will never send you away.
Feb 18, 2017 03:28
The work of loving your neighbor will not earn you a place in heaven. But, Gods Word makes it clear, the fact that a person does not love their neighbor proves that he has no place in the Kingdom of God. Do you love God? Prove it by loving your neighbor.
Feb 15, 2017 02:26
"There is no fear in love; for perfect love casts out fear."
The words “There is no fear in love” may conjure up images of white doves fluttering away in the sunset while violins play in the background. But really, what does this verse mean? How is it possible that love can drive away fear?
Listen to this podcast where I answer that question.
The Ten Commandments of Marriage
Feb 13, 2017 04:23
There are three Great Institutions of God. On the day of Pentecost He instituted the Church. In the book of Exodus He instituted government. But first and foremost in Genesis Chapter two, God instituted the Family. . The family was, is and always will be the foundation for all of civilized society. God’s plan was, is and always will be that marriage would be one man and one woman for life. So using The Ten Commandments as my guide I have developed what I call, “the Ten Commandments of Marriage.
Please listen to and share this Podcast about the, "Ten Commandments of Marriage'
Feb 11, 2017 02:35
Love your enemies and do good to those who hate you, bless the ones that curse you and pray for the ones that abuse you. Do for others as you would have them do for you. Love everyone, especially the ones who don't love you! If someone strikes you turn the other cheek!
Give and expect nothing in return! Don't judge and don’t condemn. Be merciful because God has been merciful to you! These rules are simple and they will not change!
Do you want to have an impact in the Kingdom of Heaven, then learn the rules and practice the rules!
Outside the Camp
Feb 7, 2017 03:17
We are in desperate need of revival! However revival will never break out in the midst of comfortable church people whose spiritual apathy has flat lined the evangelistic heartbeat. You know that Jesus Christ is the Rock of the ages, but most of you will not, get out, and let Him rock your world!
Try a Little Kindness
Feb 4, 2017 02:35
Because I love God with all my heart, His love compels me to be polite to everyone. So it does not matter who you are, what color your skin is or what lifestyle you have chosen I will always treat you with kindness.
Miraculous or Mundane?
Feb 2, 2017 02:28
Today you may have a need. I promise you God will provide. He may provide miraculously, mundanely or He may provide for you by teaching you to do without. No matter how it is provided it will be from God. Listen to this podcast where I talk about the God of the miraculous and the mundane.
Jan 31, 2017 01:47
The flowers that bloom this month will be pretty. The groundhog may or may not see his shadow. But there is one thing for sure. Love never fails. And between faith, hope and love the greatest of these is love
Jan 28, 2017 03:38
It does not matter who you are, where you are or what you are doing, God has a special calling for you. You may think that you are nothing special, but God specializes in using nothing special for His glory.
Jan 26, 2017 02:42
In this life we have to exercise faith in many things, but Jesus is the only One who is completely trust worthy. In Psalm 37 we are told that if we trust the Lord that we will thrive in His faithfulness. And if we commit our way to Him and trust Him, then He will fulfill all His promises for us. But you must trust Him?
Jan 24, 2017 02:28
The older I get the more wisdom I see in the advice that David gave to his son in
1 Chronicles 28:9 He said “As for you, my son Solomon know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you.”
Jan 19, 2017 02:15
Everyone carries a burden, that is just the nature of life. Burdens come in many forms. Sometimes the burdens might be envelopes with windows that outweigh envelopes with paychecks. A hospital waiting room might be your load today or an overbearing boss may be piling weight on your shoulders. All of us have burdens and if we are not careful these burdens will crush our spirits. In this podcast I tell about the Savior who. promise to help us carry our burdens.
Time, Don't Waste It
Jan 17, 2017 02:44
Many times I have wished that I was a better manager of my time. But then who can manage time? It marches on and it has no concern for your plans or desires.
No, we cannot manage time. But we can manage our own actions. We can learn to make better use of our energies and activities. The important thing is to prioritize. Decide what matters most and do not waste time on that which does not matter.
WOW, God Loves Me
Jan 14, 2017 02:27
It is because of His love for you that He sent Jesus, His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for you. Jesus the Son of God was crucified for your sins. He died, was buried and rose again so that you can receive forgiveness. In the grand scheme of things, on this earth your life is but a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow. But if you believe in Jesus and trust Him with the speck of dust that is your life you can live forever in the presence of God in heaven.
People Will Let You Down
Jan 12, 2017 02:28
Who Can you really depend on? Even the people who love you the most will sometimes let you down. In this podcast I point out that Jesus is the only one who will never let you down.
Jan 10, 2017 02:45
When we feel wretched and wonder who will deliver us from this body of death, we can thank God for Jesus Christ our Lord. Because God's grace was sufficient for Paul's thorn in the flesh and it is still sufficient for ours
Now Get Up And Serve
Jan 7, 2017 02:30
Have you experienced the healing power of Jesus? Have you experienced the saving power of Jesus? Has Jesus blessed you with material wealth, has He blessed you we special abilities? If so, what are you doing with His gift? Peter's mother In-law gives you an example to follow. Maybe it is time for you to get up and get busy serving the Lord.
Walking After The Will Of God
Jan 5, 2017 02:44
How can you know Gods will, first of all you have to decide that you really want to know His will and that you are willing to do His will? You have to come to a point in your life where you say to God, "Lord, I want what You want even when I don't want it!"
Beyond My Imagination
Jan 3, 2017 02:51
I often wonder about the purpose of all the stars. Mankind can never visit them, they are to far away. They can never provide us any of lives necessities. All we can do is look at them. They are beautiful but what is there purpose. And what is the purpose of the immensity of the universe.
In this Podcast i talk about what I think is the answer to why God created such a great universe.
Chose Love In The New Year
Dec 31, 2016 03:14
Happy New Year . We don't know what this year holds, But we can trust and believe that God is in control. The truth is there are not many things in life that we have control of. There is however one thing that you do have control of and that one thing is your attitude. The attitude that you choose will determine whether or not you have a Happy New Year.
Follow Jesus and See What He Will Make of You
Dec 29, 2016 02:23
Listen Jesus is calling out to you with the promise of making you into an extraordinary person. But you must be willing to trust Him with your life. You must choose to Follow Him and let Him use your tools and your talents for His glory.
Lost in Goosepond
Dec 27, 2016 03:13
What do you do when the world draws you away from The Heavenly Father? What do you do when it is dark and you don't know how to get back to Him? Well you call out to Him, and He will hear and He will answer you. In Psalms 141:1 we read; “LORD, I cry out to You; Make haste to me! Give ear to my voice when I cry out to You.”
The Christmas Story
Dec 24, 2016 04:32

Dec 22, 2016 03:04
At Christmas we focus on the Baby in the manger. But in this podcast i talk about things that Jesus might have experienced as a young boy and young man.
Peace on Earth

Christmas is about hope. So like the angels let this be our song, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.
Let Us Go To Bethelehem
Dec 16, 2016 02:37
Maybe your life is a mess and your heart is full of turmoil. Why don’t you allow your heart to be a new Bethlehem? Today make room for Jesus to come into your heart and you will find that all your hopes and fears will be met in Him today.
What If It Had Been You
Dec 14, 2016 04:40
Christmas is about Jesus, born to give you the gift of Life. Christmas is about God, who gave His Son for you. Christmas is about you. What are you going to do with the Gift that God has given you?
An Offensive Word
Dec 13, 2016 02:30
In Isaiah we read, "Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar of; For truth is fallen in the streets.'
In this podcast I talk about the fact that many people are offended by Truth. Unless you live in the Truth and Light of the Savior love you will never experience peace on this earth.
The Fullness of Time
Dec 10, 2016 02:45
Many have tried to gain eternal life on their own strength. But they all have failed because all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. But this is the Christmas season and what we are really celebrating at Christmas is Hope. In this podcast i talk about The Savior who was born in the fullness of time brought hope to a dying world.
You Are Not Done Until God Says That You Are Done
Dec 8, 2016 02:57
The greatest reward we can hope for is to hear God say," well done good and faithful servant. But how can you expect to hear these words if you have not done well remained faithful until God says that you are done.
The Fool Says In His Heart There is No God
Dec 6, 2016 02:08
The bible says, “The fool says in his heart there is no God." Did you know the Greek word that is translated “fool” also translates to the English word “moron”. So, basically what the bible is saying is that only a moron would not believe in God.
The Mind Of Christ
Dec 3, 2016 02:22
Christ came to be a servant and He is our example. We should be like Jesus and submit to Gods plan by being servants to those around us.
The Promises of God
Dec 1, 2016 03:02
The promises of God are as sure as the air we breathe. And like the air we breathe the promises of God are necessary for our very life to exist. However, while the breathing of air is involuntary, claiming the promises of God are not. In His Sovereignty He has given you the free will to receive or reject His great gifts. When you do not take hold of the promises of God you lose tremendous blessings. But it is God’s nature to allow you to choose, He never forces His blessings on anyone.
Go And Sin No More
Nov 29, 2016 03:06
In this podcast i talk about our need for repentance. Jesus did not come to condemn us but if we do not turn from our sins we condemn ourselves. That is why He tells us to, "Go and sin no more."
Nov 24, 2016 02:37
Who am I, That God would give His Son to die for me, that I might have eternal life!
Who am I that I am called to preach the gospel!
1 Peter 2:9 which says “ You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."
That is who I am.
A Blessed Nation
Nov 22, 2016 02:34
Because of our Christian Heritage we are the most blessed people in the world. I wonder, could it be that because of our many blessings, and our many possessions that we think that we don't need God anymore?
He Is Faithful
Nov 19, 2016 01:46
I enter into His gates with thanksgiving in my heart. I come into His courts with praises on my lips because He is God. Because He is God I am always thankful and will never stop blessing His Holy name.
Beauty From Ashes
Nov 17, 2016 02:36
God never promised us that there would not be times of suffering in our lives. In 2 Corinthians we are told that we will be troubled on every side, but don’t be distressed. We will be perplexed but we should never despair. We will face persecution but God will never forsake us. And though we might be cast down we will never be destroyed.
The Great I Am
Nov 15, 2016 02:23
If the sun shines or the rain falls, Jesus is the Great I Am. If your favorite team wins or loses Jesus is the Great I Am. whatever happens in your life I hope that you can look to Him and say even so Lord Jesus come quickly.
Nov 10, 2016 02:18
Jesus did not come to condemn the world but that through Him the world might be saved.
You can have salvation IF you want it but you must choose to follow Him. IF you do not you will be lost. It is your choice.
What Is The Purpose of The Bible?
Nov 8, 2016 02:47
Throughout the Bible God promises unending love and eternal protection. In this precious love letter He tells of the terrible price that He has paid, the wonderful home He is preparing and He gives us this greatest of all promises, “soon I will return and receive you unto Myself, that were I am you will be also.”
I know Who Jesus Is
Nov 5, 2016 02:38
Jesus said, “If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me. And He was lifted up on a cross were He died for your sins. He was lifted up from the tomb because He had defeated death, hell and the grave. He was lifted up into heaven were He is now seated at the right hand of The Father.
And today, I give praise and honor to the Lamb of God! I lift up the Name of Jesus because He is Messiah, my Christ, my King and my Savior.
Nov 3, 2016 01:55
The Gospel is the living word of God written in our hearts proclaiming we are free. I Christ we are free from our past, free from our sins and free from condemnation. The Word tells us that Jesus stood as our representative. He paid for our sins and now we are free to live for Him.
There It Is
Nov 1, 2016 02:14
Today is the day that the Lord has made so you should make the most of it. We are not promised tomorrow live today as if your life depends on it!
Oct 29, 2016 03:02
If Jesus is your Savior there is coming a time when all you question marks will be turned into exclamation points, our sorrow will give way to singing and our pain will be lost in praise.
Oct 27, 2016 02:50
God's amazing grace is given to us simply because He loves us. We do not deserve it and we cannot earn it. We are saved by grace because He loves us and because we receive it by faith.
We Are a Post Christian Nation
Oct 25, 2016 02:12
We are a post Christian nation. But do not blame these on the Government. After all, The Government is, Of the people, By the people and For the people and the people have decided that God is not important any more but their own selfish desires are.
PEOPLE wake up:
Get into the Word Of God and learn the doctrines of God so you can teach the truth of God and then we can experience the Glory of GOD!
Are You Victorious or Are You a Victim?
Oct 22, 2016 03:28
History is filled with stories of great men and women whom we all admire. But did you know that no great man or women has ever been born! No, only babies are born. Our heroes became heroes when they overcame their circumstances. They become great when they make wise and good choices. Great men and women do not do great things, they simply make it a habit to do the right thing
The Way The Truth And The Life
Oct 20, 2016 01:56
All you really need is to be in the presence of the Lord. And Jesus is the way. Listen to this podcast about the One who can give you what you really need.

What Did You Expect, A Movie Made of your Life?
Oct 15, 2016 03:06
In this podcast I talk about the misconception some people have about salvation. To follow Jesus does not mean that your problems will go away. Walking with Him means that He is with you and will give you strength to take you through troubled times
The promise of salvation is not that life will get easy but that Life in Christ is eternal.
Oct 13, 2016 04:24
Pain can be our Friend, through it we learn to trust God. God will often use pain in our lives to bring us from where we are to where we must be in order to receive His blessings.
Oct 8, 2016 03:01
Some people will try to impress you with big words and some people will try to put labels on you like fundamentalist or reformed.
If you want to label me,label me as a servant of Christ. When it comes to vocabulary I have found that most often simple words are the best words. Especially these words, " Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so."
Oct 6, 2016 02:28
"The people did what was right in their own eyes." In the book of Judges this phrase led to one of the most horrible stories in the Bible.
It seems that today most Americans also want to do that which is right in their own eyes. This has led to our nation being just as perverse as the Nation of Israel was in the last three chapters of Judges.
Oct 4, 2016 02:52
There is only one way to Heaven and that way is Jesus. The story of the Tower of Babel is a story of men trying to work their way to heaven. all their work failed and they were left with rubble. Many people are trying to work their way to heaven today, they to will end up with rubble.
The Goodness Of America
Oct 1, 2016 02:25
America is great because good men stood on the Word of God while they led this nation. America is good because humble preachers carried the message of hope and salvation which stirred the hearts of people to live righteous lives.
Sep 29, 2016 01:38
What is your soul worth? God thinks that your soul is worth the Life of His Son. When Jesus cried out from the cross, "IT IS FINISHED", He was saying that the transaction was done, the price had been paid and you pardon had been purchased. That is Priceless Love.
Sep 27, 2016 02:29
Revival, people say that they want God to revive their churches and their lives, But do they really? The truth is God will not send revival until we take up our cross and follow Him. Revival will not come to those who are unwilling to change. Listen to this podcast and ask yourself, "Do I really want revival in my life? Am I willing to accept the change that will come with revival?"
Sep 24, 2016 02:44
The seasons give glory to God. So give thanks always for all His blessings.
Sep 22, 2016 02:49
Jesus loves broken people. While everyone is broken in one way or another very few find the blessedness of brokenness. The blessedness of brokenness is this, God loves to fix broken people.

Sep 8, 2016 02:57
What is critical thinking? It is the ability to examine the facts and decide for yourself what is truth. For to long, to many people have been willing to let others tell them how to think. When God created us in His own image He gave us the ability to think and find truth for ourselves. For this reason we need a revival of critical thinking.
Sep 6, 2016 02:19

I Turned My Chair Around
Aug 30, 2016 02:37

Aug 27, 2016 01:58
It doe not matter how great your accomplishments are, in a hundred years your life will be represented by a dash on a tombstone. So the most important thing you can do today is please God. He is the One Who makes this life have meaning.

Aug 25, 2016 02:19

Aug 20, 2016 02:37
The victory that we have in the valley of the shadow of death is this; Jesus our Savior has walked it before us. He has defeated death, hell and the grave and now in the presence of the Holy Spirit we can have the courage to fear no evil.
Be Sure your Gate is Locked
Aug 18, 2016 02:49
A cow who was prone to go through unlocked gates teaches me that I must always be vigilant to lock the gates behind myself. In the same way I can never let my guard down because Satan is always looking for a weakness that he can shake me with.
Aug 16, 2016 02:23
Would you be content in whatever state you find yourself in. Life can change in an instant, today you may be healthy and praising God. But what if tomorrow life is not so good, would you praise God anyhow
Aug 13, 2016 03:16

He Knows My Name
Aug 4, 2016 01:44
A child of God can be sure that The Creator of all things knows his name. The Bible tells us that God has our names written on His palm and also that as children of God our names are sealed in the Lambs book of life. Does He know your name? If not then know this today can be your day of salvation.
Aug 2, 2016 03:14
Nothing ever stays the same. In this podcast I challenge you to accept the fact that change is inevitable. For this reason we should not resist change, instead we should plan for it and harness it for the Glory of God.

What Was the Question
Jul 16, 2016 02:53
