Are you familiar with the expression “chip on his shoulder”? It usually refers to a person who is easily offended, quick to anger and always ready to fight. I am preparing a series of sermons on: What Can We Learn From The 12 Tribes Of Israel? One of those tribes definitely walked around with a...
Few emotional swings reach from the highest high to lowest low in a period of 60 hours. My wife Brenda and I celebrated our 54th wedding anniversary on August 12. Three days later, our oldest daughter, Julie Choate, succumbed to a pulmonary embolism. In a two-hour period, efforts to revive her...
Most who know our family well are aware that Chad isn’t our biological son. He is actually my cousin, via adoption. My maternal grandparents adopted 5 children when they were in their 60s. The youngest child is Chad’s birth mother. I have already written an article about Chad coming to live with us...
In John 20:29 Jesus told Thomas: “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” As Christians, each of us knows that we were not part of those who walked and talked with Him for the 3.5 yrs of His earthly ministry. We are part of the...
Many of the worlds we commonly use in church we take for granted. They are part of a “church vocabulary” we have learned and always used. Word, like hope, faith, love, justification and others. One word we have heard and used often is “surrender.” What does surrender mean? In some areas of life...
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, It was so great to be together on Sunday. We not only had a good number, but we had some visitors share with us. I was thankful that they came and shared with us in the morning worship service. I am always excited about our visitors. But I wondered,...
Have you ever faced all your enemies in one day; in fact, in only a few of hours? And what if each enemy wasn’t an individual, but a group, all in a few hours, back to back to back to back? Jesus did that very thing a couple of days before His arrest, conviction, beatings and crucifixion, probably...
“Kill the umpire!” Well, people don’t really mean that. Some do get a little upset with umpires once in a while when we believe he missed a close call. You know he was wrong, he is blind as a bat, you almost want to put down your hot dog and go out there and tell him. In reality, we never really...
All around us people are watching and so is the Lord. Proverbs 15:3 says, “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good.” In his book, “A Father for All Seasons,” Bob Welch wrote: “Last summer, my son, Jason, was a seventh-grader playing in a seventh/eighth grade league....
This part of Jesus’ life began in a garden. He was at His absolute weakest point ever, even more vulnerable than in the wilderness after fasting for 40 days. Matthew and Mark describe Jesus as grieving and depressed; Luke adds, “And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like...
