When Being a Servant Becomes Destructive

When Being a Servant Becomes Destructive

The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. – Matthew 23:11-12 (CSB) At times it seems that God’s Kingdom operates backwards from our human logic. In order to be great we are called to serve. The Bible even calls us to lay […]

When Everyone is a Heretic

Just over a week ago we had the great John MacArthur – Beth Moore kerfuffle. The complementarians and the egalitarians lined up against one another and waged a great war on social media. Many mocked and made jokes of the other. A week later nobody changed their point of view but the church was further […]

Social Media: The Good – The Bad -The Ugly

Our broken human nature tends to be drawn to the sensational and the tragic. From the earliest days when news was simply spread by word of mouth it tended to deal with politics, crime and the gossip of the rich and famous. Fast forward several hundred years and now thanks to the internet, news is […]

Where Olives are Crushed

The night Jesus was arrested he went with his disciples to a quiet place to pray. He had just celebrated Passover with his closest disciples and he had also washed their feet. This was an act of humbling service and care for them. His betrayer Judas slipped out into the darkness to complete the evil […]

Whitewashed Tombs

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of the bones of the dead and every kind of impurity. In the same way, on the outside you seem righteous to people, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” – […]

Is Jesus Enough?

Instead, I have calmed and quieted my soul like a weaned child with its mother; my soul is like a weaned child. – Psalm 131:2 (CSB) I am still amazed when I have read a Bible verse dozens of time and that one time it suddenly jumps out and grabs me. I have been preaching […]

The Christian and the Wilderness Experience

A lot of pastors, myself included, teach on the truth of how God intervenes in our circumstances. However, if we are not careful we fail to teach the proper response to those times when life goes wrong and seems like a never ending wilderness. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that […]

Now Faith Is…

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) We as humans love to live by our senses. We judge our world by what we can see, hear, taste, feel and smell. This is why we struggle so much with true faith. Many claim God does not exist because he […]

Instead of sending the kids off to Children’s Church they staid in the main sanctuary for the entire service and the kids participated in serving and reading scriptures etc. The shoes in the picture belong to a young man about 14.

You Really Do Need Negative People in Your Life

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves […]
