A Word for the Week

'Fruitful faith'--That is the desire of our Father in heaven. James would remind us that faith without fruit (works) is dead. James 2:17 Jesus would illustrate this truth in Luke 13:6 as He told a parable of a "man who had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it and did not find any." It is important that we understand that this fig tree did not have some fruit, this fig tree had no fruit. There must first be fruit before the fruit can be described as good or bad. This tree had used the hidden resources that sustain life to produce foliage but no fruit. It could be said of this particular tree that is was beautiful to look at barren of purpose. When you t

I was reminded the other day of a scripture that speaks of the time when hearts grow cold and calloused toward God (2 Timothy 4:3) and a 'falling away' occurs as a result. (2 Thessalonians 2:3) We understand from scripture that these things will occur before Jesus comes again. I've given thought to that on occasion to how that might literally unfold before our eyes; and it is. All you have to do is attend church and count the seats that once were filled faithfully, but no longer. My wife shared with me a few days ago about an article she read on why more and more are attending church less and less. The reason might surprise you. I know this reason wouldn't have been in the top 5 reasons

A Word for the Week

Many are currently engaged in the 15th lesson of weekly discipleship--D-GROUP. And most are being drawn closer to the Lord through the time spent with Him and with others who have chosen to invest more time in His truth. The word of God says in Luke 9:23--"then he said to them all, 'whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me'." Denying oneself is the step that most fail in becoming a disciple of Christ. And for those who take that step, taking up the cross daily seems to be a real challenge that many believe they can conveniently ignore. Such has come to be the accepted normal in what has been called 'Consumer Christianity'. Author Boy

A Word for the Week

Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to us! Faithfulness to hear and faithfulness to help in whatever we may face and/or fear. I read from Psalms 61 a couple of days ago, particularly verses 1-4 where the Psalmist says-- "Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings." It doesn't matter where you are, how you got there or even how long you've been there; wherever 'there' is for you this week, God is accessible to His own and eager

A Word for the Week

We begin a series of 4 messages on generosity this coming Sunday morning at 10:30. In January we plan to examine the foundation of generosity, the spirit of generosity, the plan of generosity, and finally the strategy of generosity. The theme for the month is based on God's generosity toward us and our response to others. In reading this morning I noticed the number of times that the word 'give' is used in some form in the 17th chapter of the gospel of John alone. This is the chapter--(26 verses)--that records the Lord's prayer prior to His completing God's plan of redemption. In what has been referred to as the High Priestly prayer--the word 'give' or some form of it is used at least 17
