    Do you ever feel like life is flying by, out of control? You want to get off, but it is like a merry-go-round that is moving too fast. Jumping off can hurt more than staying on! So you just hold on and keep flying. I think we have that problem year rou

    Do you ever feel like life is flying by, out of control? You want to get off, but it is like a merry-go-round that is moving too fast. Jumping off can hurt more than staying on!

    Worry is a big problem, especially at Christmas time. We shouldn’t be chasing after and worrying about things that non-Christian people chase! The sins of worry and fretting over things might be acceptable sins to people, but they aren’t to God! Worry is

    You might be wondering why I am starting a Christmas series even before Thanksgiving. Well, the stores start Christmas now, so I figure if you can’t beat em, join em! That is only partially true. One reason I am starting it now is that I am going to be on vacation next week. But another ...read more

    The Horse Whisperer was a movie based upon the work of Monty Roberts. Monty Roberts’ secret of his horse whispering involves his getting into the corral with an untamed mustang.

  • How To Treat Your Salvation

     | 1,455 views

    This sermon was preached right after the Virginia Tech shootings. Aside from the apostle Paul, I don’t know if we see a greater change in anyone than John. He went from a "son of thunder" to one who said, "little children, let us love one another." It

    As we continue through some of the smallest letters in the New Testament, we come to two of the letters written by the apostle John. But before we get to his writings, let¡¦s look at John, and how he was changed by Jesus. John is thought by most to be the youngest of the disciples. I would ...read more

    3 John gives to us a glimpse into the life and struggles of the church of the first century. They struggled with the truth and with personalities. To borrow the words of a New Testament scholar: “Third John is all about the Elder, who wrote it; Gaius, who

    Jay Leno once said that the Christmas tree is the perfect houseplant for him because it is already dead. And that’s probably true for many of us. Growing house plants sometimes is hard work. One preacher was given a Peace Lily for a wedding gift. I don’t know what the symbolism means. Peace ...read more

    We live in a society that has this upside down. A guy gets arrested for dog fighting. He is in big trouble. It is not only federal trouble, but the state is going to try him for animal cruelty too. Now I want you to know that I am not opposed to that. I joke about not liking dogs, but I am ...read more

    But there was a time when you got to Christmas and it all slowed down. You would have the week between Christmas and New Year’s sort of as the holiday. It is not that you didn’t work during that time, but things slowed down significantly. But like those hospital stays it has been shortened ...read more

    John the Baptist lived a simple life, even by their standards. In Luke 3 he gives us an important teaching that tends to get eliminated in our society. Luke 3:11 John answered, “The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same.” Think ...read more

    Do you remember me saying that none of Mary’s family was there for the birth? It wasn’t that way at his death. We don’t know her name, but it doesn’t matter. Those words say a lot, “his mother’s sister.” Because of the way Mary lived her life, at least one member of her family came around. She ...read more
