One ordinary day at the temple,
Jesus purposed to watch people go by;
He observed their heart attitudes,
without them… even knowing why.
He watched the gait of the proudly rich,
dressed in their expensive clothes;
they jingled a portion of their wealth
and drew attention with uplifted noses.
Christ properly noticed and judged the scene
of them depositing their offering coins,
disappointed that they collected their reward

They are coming Home. Thanksgiving, 2014.
This is a unique year … three of my four children are up and out of the house, but will be coming home for Thanksgiving. Wait, wasn’t it just yesterday, that I was ten years old, running down the stairs in my big old Colonial Revival home with all of the smells of Thanksgiving already under way in my mother’s kitchen? And I was the youngest of four children, waiting for each of them to arrive! Time goes by.…

We are nearing a holiday season when we can reflect on our hardships, blessings, encouragement and discouragement. I meditate on Pauls life when he said... "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." Phil 4:12 I think I can speak of all of us when I say there have been times this year "I…Continue

"Avoid foolish questions."
Our days are few, and are far better spent in doing good, than in disputing over matters which are, at best, of minor importance. The old schoolmen did a world of mischief by their incessant discussion of subjects of no…Continue

The religious were blind. Matthew 3.1-12; Luke 7.24-35
When John saw the sanctimonious Pharisees and Sadducees1 coming out to the desert, he blasted them, calling them out for their outward piety, while their hearts were unrepentant. Their garb identified them and their position but it also helped them maintain their religious pride rather than seeing their sin. It seems…

This is a shared perspective from( Derek Prince Re -known minister) would like to share is thoughts
Over the years, the Lord showed me one basic principle about the cross: that it was an exchange, a divinely appointed exchange. On the cross, to satisfy eternal, divine justice, God caused to meet together upon Jesus all the evil that was due by justice to the human race, so that in return, by faith, the one who repents and believes may receive all the good that is due…

We are still called to worship;
open hearts and voices, glorify His Name!
We acknowledge the Almighty
and His Kingdom… we freely proclaim!
We are called to worship,
knowing that we are His Children.
We have been given The Scriptures
and holy tools for overcoming sin.
We continue to worship Him,
Whose Love was revealed in Christ Jesus.
We will continue to Seek His face
and to have His Love perfected in us.

To the uncircumcised heart,
a real relationship with God
is not only strange and peculiar,
it’s unbelievably… odd.
For what role does Mankind play,
that Jehovah is mindful of us?
How could the embodiment of Love
allow us to martyr Christ Jesus?
Unlike the angels of the heavenly realm,
we’re made in the image of God Himself.
Christ was not crucified for angels, but…
to insure a way of bringing us back to Himself.
For we’ve been given…Continue

Help me Lord, to acknowledge those
who labor within my sphere of influence,
for they too deserve my prayers for them.
Help me Lord, to lovingly admonish those
who lack a proper sense of discipline,
for like me, they require spiritual guidance.
Help me Lord, to quietly comfort those
who seek cooperation and genuine fairness,
that serves all of my neighbors equally.
Help me Lord, to forgivingly tolerate those
who are stronger or weaker…

The Baptizer - Wild and Woolly. Matthew 3.1-6
It was long ago in a galaxy far, far away … or at least it seems that way. The speaker followed at least three others who came out with rather splashy multi-media presentations, Power Point illustrations and statistics, and frankly kept my rapt attention. It was more than 10 years ago now. And then came one. He came out with a simple stool and a smallish black Bible—that’s all. Mostly, Erwin McManus talked…
