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…

Spiritual Paternity Test

Who is your father? What’s his name? My father is James William Simpson, and I was born to him in February of 1980. Most folks know who their physical father is, but if you don’t, tests are available to help you identify who that man is. They are called a paternity tests. Maury Povich basically…

Don’t Be Deceived by Deceit

As we walk in this broken world, we have to remain vigilant because deception is everywhere. And when it comes to deceit, the devil is very wily. He knows that if he comes at you with an outright lie, you’ll easily recognize that. And so instead, he follows a recipe, which the renowned evangelist Billy…

They Went Out From Us

One of the most concerning scenarios we face in the Christian life is when we have a person around us, around our church, in our life, who seems to be a follower of Jesus. They made a profession of faith. They were baptized. They attended church faithfully. Maybe they even served in some capacity. But…

Good Friday

Today is the day in Holy Week we call Good Friday. That name is quite oxymoronic because Good Friday in a sense was a very dark day. It was the day that Jesus was crucified. Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day, Christ on the road to Calvary, Tried by sinful men, torn…
