Bless The Lord Every Day

“I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalm 145: 1-3) Every Sunday I am blessed to lead you all in worship. What a joy to hear your voices raised in praise to the Lord. This scripture reminds us of how great God is. He is so great that we are charged to praise and bless his name every day! I have to confess, though, some days I am so distracted by the “poodles” of life. (Poodles are small dogs that … [Read more...]

“What were you thinking?”

Have you ever had someone ask you, “What were you thinking?” That usually sends my mind to a conversation with my dad in my teen years, after demonstrating my uncanny ability to make a dumb decision. Though my memory may bring back an uncomfortable moment, the question nevertheless is a good question. What are we thinking? In Philippians 4:8-9 the Apostle Paul gives us some great instruction in this very area. “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of … [Read more...]

All I Have Is Christ

all

There are things in our lives that make us question, “What do we really have?” As a young man, my list of things I thought were important and “must haves” in my life, over the years has changed. You know, fast cars, fast horses, and new things have been exchanged for meaningful relationships, a loving wife, productive children, and yes, wonderful grandchildren. What I am spending more time doing these days is thinking about my future and reevaluating my priorities. The Apostle Paul did the same thing in Philippians 3: 7-11: “But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for … [Read more...]

The Story

FBC Christmas Email Flyer 2013

It is the most “wonderful time of the year”, Christmas! How wonderful to celebrate the greatest gift ever given, Jesus Christ, the Messiah of the world, born of a virgin in a lowly manger. What a great story of amazing love, compassion, and grace. Yet, the story does not begin or end at the manger. “The Story”, began in the heart of God in the beginning of time, before the foundations of the world were laid; to provide the perfect sacrifice for the sin of an imperfect people. You see, Christmas is more than a story about “Baby Jesus”, it’s a story of how far love will go to … [Read more...]

Are We Unquenchable Worshippers?

“Though the fig-tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior”. (Habakkuk 3:17, 18). I so love the attitude of Habakkuk, who refused to be discouraged in his quest to glorify God, no matter how bleak the situation he found himself in, “yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior”. We see the same attitude in Acts 16 with Paul and Silas, sitting in their jail … [Read more...]
