Hungry? Then Do Right

If I were to get you a gift card to your favorite restaurant, where would that be? And what would you order? Mine would be Outback, and I would order that big, ol’ bone-in ribeye cooked medium, with steak fries, and a great big blooming onion. Oh, my goodness, that meal is so good it’ll…

How to Bless Momma

I hope all you mommas had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Where would we be without our mommas? What did you do over the weekend to bless your momma? Proverbs 10:1 tells us a great way to bless both our mom and our dad, and here’s the best part: it doesn’t cost a thing. It says,…

Pray for the Sinner

One of the tougher passages of Scripture is found in 1 John 5:16–17, “If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life—to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say…

Are You Sure?

One year back about 15 years ago when I was pastor at a church in Tennessee, the Lord led me to organize our people to knock on the door of every house in our city. The city of Alexandria only has about 1,000 people in it. So, we just had a few hundred homes to…

The God of the Impossible… Cannot?

One of my favorite verses from Scripture is from the Gospel of Luke, chapter 1. The angel Gabriel tells the virgin Mary that she’ll conceive and give birth to a child. This news greatly perplexes Mary because she’s never been with a man. And so, she asks, “How will this be, since I am a…

How to Be Confident on Judgment Day

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but did you know that a day of judgment is coming? One day you and I and every person will stand before God as our judge, and we will be judged based on our obedience and disobedience to Him. How confident are you that God will…

Wanna See God?

Do you ever wish that you could see God? Boy, I do. Wouldn’t that be amazing if God manifested himself right here in this room? It would certainly be overwhelming and scary at first, but that would hopefully soon give way to wonder and amazement and joy. The Bible promises us that one day for…

This Is Love

We talk about love and sing about love all the time, but how would you define love? Some of you might say, “Well, preacher, it’s easier to show you love than to define love.” But, a definition is important so that we truly know what love is, lest we point to the wrong thing and…

Don’t Get the Wrong Christ

It should come as no surprise that Jesus Christ is the centerpiece and lynchpin of Christianity. I mean, it’s kind of in the name: Christ-ianity, Christianity. Jesus is the one on whom we fix our eyes, and Jesus is the one who constitutes Christianity. Without Him, it all falls apart, and there is no Christianity.…

Proof of God’s Love

Have you ever wondered if God loves you? Well, Apostle John in 1 John 3 argues that all the proof we need is found in the death of Jesus Christ. He writes in 1 John 3:16, “By this we know love, that Jesus laid down his life for us.” That’s certainly what Jesus did. He…
