Look to the LORD for Strength

  He was never the biggest, in fact many times he was the smallest one in any group. He had older brothers who would insist he wasn’t welcomed to join them on their adventures because he was too little. It was then when he developed a saying, “I can do it myself!” He would use that phrase to prove to others he was big enough, strong enough to handle anything. His brothers would want to climb a tree. They would tell him he was too little. They would ask,...

Always Remember

Yesterday was a day of reflection. 18 years ago to the day (yesterday – September 11th) our world, our country, our lives were changed. Evil seemed to have the upper hand. Planes crashed; lives were lost. Those who orchestrated it were proud. They wanted destruction. They wanted death. What did you do yesterday? Many people over the last 18 years have stated – We will never forget! That day is one many will remember always. And, it is so important to remember – remember...

It Truly IS Finished!

Do you want to hear a true yet horrible thought? I will warn you, this thought is so much worse than any scary movie you may have seen or any horrible news report you may have heard. Ready? If God doesn’t do what God promised to do about my sin, there is nothing I can do to change it! If God doesn’t take away my sin like he said he would, what difference can I make? Ok, so you knew that already. How can you sleep at night?! What would happen if God didn’t keep his...

God's Commands...for Our Good

Have you ever tried to train a pet? We had a dog for a while. Although we were able to train our dog to do a few things (i.e. sit, shake, ring a bell to let us know it was time to go outside), there were many things which we were not able to train her to do. It can be frustrating when dealing with animals and trying to get them to do something, or not do something. Animals can’t think like we do and each animal can be smarter (or not as smart) than any other animal. I think of this...

Jesus is Willing

I couldn’t imagine what it felt like. We read in the Bible of some of the diseases the people had. Can you name one of them? I would guess many of you thought of leprosy. Would it surprise you that leprosy is still around today? There is an actual leper colony in the USA. It is in Hawaii. So, I guess, if you are going to get leprosy…Hawaii wouldn’t be such a bad place to be. But, it did seem like more people had it during Bible Times. One such person approached Jesus...

One for All

  Are you ever accidentally smart?  No, I am not insulting you, at least not trying to insult you. I know I have been accidentally funny in the past. I was not trying to make people laugh but it happened. But, how about being accidentally smart or accidentally right about something? If you are very smart, then more than likely it isn’t on accident. You can’t get a perfect ACT score accidentally. But, have you ever had that conversation – “Oh Greg, you...

Pentecost - Proof God Can Do Anything

  What is the most shocking thing which has happened to you or that you have done? Life can be shocking. But, the only way something is considered “shocking” is when it usually doesn’t happen. It is shocking to win the lottery. It is shocking when doctors give you a 0% chance to survive, and you survive.   Well, how shocking would it be for you if you started speaking a different language perfectly, in an instant and without any training? This Sunday...

Our God...The FAITHFUL God!

It is that time of year again. Many churches have already had confirmation. Some are still waiting. There will be small class sizes to very large class sizes. But, each confirmation class will have one thing in common…they will all make a vow to Jesus to be faithful. More than likely the passage from Revelation will be said at least once on that day: Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2:10). But, how many of those vows will...

I See Your Future And...It Is Great!

If I told you I could tell your future, would you want to know it? I suppose I should ask first, do you believe I could tell your future? Then if you think I could…would you want to know that future? It actually doesn’t take much to be able to see your future. All it takes is a pattern of past events which can help to predict the future. So, look at your past. What do you see? I don’t even know who is reading this, yet I will tell you your past. Is it full of sin?...

Bring Your Children (And Yourself) to Jesus!

Do you know everything the government does each and every day? Do you know the decisions they make and how that will impact your life today and for years to come? Nope, I know what you are thinking and this is NOT going to be a blog about our government. But, there is a point (I hope). I read a devotion this morning in preparation for Holy Week. In it, the devotion talked about the 10 plagues of Egypt. You can read those in Exodus 7-12. But, a thought occurred to me as I was reading...
