    Contributed on Apr 3, 2018
     | 465 views

    Jesus sought to glorify God in the grit of everyday life. When this is our focus the realities of life have purpose, even when, especially when, we're wadding through the slug of the tough stuff.

    GLORIFYING GOD THROUGH THE GRIT Scripture: John 16:32-17:5 Text – John 17: 1, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.” There are many people considered to be great people – people in their lifetimes who were called upon to live for other people and they ...read more

    The lame beggar was over 40 years of age (Acts 4:22) and spent every day in the same place the whole of his life. He is a representation of any person living out their lives without an “other” context.

    I was browsing the internet a few days ago – news stories about the “same old, same old”. “Same old” suggests “nothing has changed” and speaks to those things that frustrate us or annoy us.

    David was a polygamist, adulterer and murdered. He was deceptive. He never meted out justice and was irresponsible with the crimes committed under his own roof. How does a man with that track-record get God's blessing with, "A man after my own heart"?

    After God’s Heart Psalm 19:1-14; 1 Samuel 13:14 On this Father's Day, I am led to a man of men, a prince of princes and a statesman of politicians. He was a poet, musician and military leader who conquered nations and put fear in his enemies. The most profound accomplishment that would be a ...read more

    I used this devotional message in a retirement home. It is intended to encourage those who lived a life of faith and leaves a legacy of faith.

    Faith in Action Hebrews 11:39-12:3 President Abraham Lincoln met with a group of ministers for a prayer breakfast during the Civil War. One of the ministers suggested to the President that they pray that God will be on their side. Lincoln’s deep insight prompted the response, "Let us prayer ...read more

    Emphasis on being witnesses of Jesus and the foundational place of prayer and the unity of God's people in that journey.

    May 28, 2017 Seventh Sunday of Easter With One Mind Acts 1:6-14 Swiss Chalet has a new commercial for their Crispy Chicken special. It is funny to watch as one lone customer, taking a bite says, "This is SO good, I have to tell everyone…immediately!” Then we see him scooting down the street ...read more
