    Have you ever eaten all your popcorn before the movie started? I have! It’s called no self-discipline. There is something to be said about butter and salt on a fluffy kernel of no taste; Yummy.

    Happy “Disciplined” Weekend, Everyone! Have you ever eaten all your popcorn before the movie started? I have! It’s called no self-discipline. There is something to be said about butter and salt on a fluffy kernel of no taste; Yummy. Admit it, you have something in your life that just overpowers ...read more

    Have you ever been so excited to meet someone that you were almost scared? Or, have you waited for something so long that the closer the time comes to that day the more nervous and shaky you become?

    Happy “Encounter” Weekend, Everyone! A portion of one verse leading up to the Ten Commandments text is one of my favorite phrases in Exodus: “Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God” (Exodus 19:17a). So much took place following the manna and quail, showing that God was ...read more

    Now the doctrine of believer’s adoption into God’s family is rich with assurance and commitment from our Heavenly Father. But until it hits home in a real way, it’s just not the same.

    The title of my message is “Adopted, into the family of God.” Now the doctrine of believer’s adoption into God’s family is rich with assurance and commitment from our Heavenly Father. But until it hits home in a real way, it’s just not the same. Thankfully, God knows what He’s doing and He has ...read more

    We are not microwave cooks! We do not bring about “instant” Christians! We merely mix ingredients, and share receipts. In other words…We share the Gospel!

    Happy “Speak-Up” Weekend, Everyone! Amos, an Old Testament book that we don’t spend much time in is where we will be studying this Sunday. Amos is called one of the “lesser” books of the Bible, not because it’s less important, but because it’s smaller. Amos, like Hosea, Joel, Obadiah, Micah, ...read more

    Ezekiel was a dynamic and dramatic guy. Even though he was a great prophet/teacher/preacher, his words landed on deaf ears. I’ve been teaching Sunday school for over 30 years and there are times when I wonder if I’m even getting through to anyone.

    Happy “Dramatic” Weekend, Everyone! There is so much drama today. Whether it is political or in Hollywood, or in the music world, or even in our own communities. Be it drugs or suicide or violence or anything else today. Goodness, some families have enough drama going on to keep the nosey gossips ...read more

    Since the beginning, man has been catching fish. Rarely does a fish catch a man. Well, there are a few times when a shark will bite, or swallow and kill a person, but that’s not what I’m talking about. There have been a few instances when a person has bee

    Happy “Disciplinary” Weekend, Everyone! James Bartley is one such a man, (1870–1909) is the central figure in a late nineteenth-century story according to which he was swallowed whole by a sperm whale. He was found a day later (36 hours) in the stomach of the whale, which was dead, washed ...read more

  • Happy Fruity Weekend

    I remember one Sunday many years ago a pastor was preaching on the Fruits of the Spirit. To get his message across better he brought with him real fruit. For example, a “peach” stood for goodness because a peach is soft and pleasant, and juicy.

    First Baptist Church https://www.facebook.com/ThreeSpringsBaptist/?fref=nf Published by NealCarole Gracey February 24 at 7:10am • Happy “Fruity” Weekend, Everyone! I remember one Sunday many years ago a pastor was preaching on the ...read more

    People sometimes leave their long term commitment with the church for the wrong reasons, or snap decisions that don’t make sense at all. I am going to d

    Thy Will Be Done? I left the church I grew up in after 50 roller coaster years. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t because of the roller coaster that I left. I learned from that and gained experience and a wonderful knowledge of scripture and the importance of wisdom. It was because of the ...read more

    Happy “Newness” Sunday, Everyone Friends, when Jesus Christ enters your life, you don’t grow wings; you don’t develop a halo, and you are miles and miles from being holy. When Jesus Christ comes into your life, the battle begins!

    Happy “Newness” Sunday, Everyone! When my wife and I (finally) gave our lives over to Christ, the scenery around our house changed. No, the trees outside were the same, the furniture in the living room was the same, all the aquarium fish were still the same fish. What changed were the ...read more

  • Be Humble, Everyone.

    How do you and I avoid self-exaltation? How does your church avoid it? Beloved, humility is a matter of the heart and a complete understanding of our relationship with the Lord.

    Be Humble, Everyone! This story told by Jesus is a familiar one to many. It’s the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector from Luke 18:9-14. I won’t go into the parable itself; we can do that in class, but this story does remind me of several people I know and you probably ...read more

    “It is impossible to live life having not been offended, but woe to the person through whom they do come! It would be better for him that a millstone be tied around his neck and to be thrown into the sea, than to cause one of these ‘little ones’ to stumble.”

    Happy “Refuge” Saturday, Everyone! 4/30/16 Not every child who starts out in church stays in church; in fact, the number of kids and young adults walking away from the faith is ever increasing as time moves on. Did you know (I did the research) that less than 1% of young people in ...read more

    Sooner or later the cock is going to crow, and if it's like the rooster across the way from my house, it could be...at any time! Like Peter, we are sinners in need of a Savior. But, like Peter, we have a hint that the rooster is going to crow, eventually, no matter what.

    Happy "Crowing" Saturday, Everyone! There is a rooster that lives across the road into the valley below on my neighbors farm. That crazy bird will cock-a-doodle-do anytime of the day. What a crazy bird! He reminds me of the lesson this week. This week's Sunday School lesson is from Mark 14. The ...read more

    God will answer, one way or the other! Repent.

    Happy "Repentance" Saturday, Everyone! Wow, my title this morning gets right to the point, don't you think? Ezekiel chapter 18 doesn't pull any punches when it comes to sin. The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel with a huge laundry list of transgressions that people commit. Having false idols, ...read more

    Seek Good and Live. Amos Chapter 5

    Happy "Seek Good" Saturday, Everyone! I know a person that grew up in the church, participated in Bible school, attended all the events, participated in the activities, sang hymns, prayed, etc. Then this person grew up and went to college and became an atheist.
