Think About This

Now what?  The election is over, the result surprising, and our nation is as divided as ever with disagreements reaching even into our own families. Protests fill the streets from coast to coast. Comments on social media are vicious. People are hurting, afraid, and fearful about the future. So...

Think About This

Tuesday is Election Day. Most of us are ready for it to be over. Yet for those of you who have not yet cast your ballot, I ask you to remember this. The presidential candidates, as unappealing as they are, are just the figureheads of the political parties they represent. Each of those parties has a...

Think About This

Tonight our world celebrates Halloween.  Christians respond to the festivities in a variety of ways. The holiday is a subject of great debate. Are the little princesses and Minions who come to your door innocently in it for the candy, or is the candy an “entry drug” to numb them and their...

Think About This

Next Sunday we will celebrate the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a church we believe that Jesus died for our sins, but His death wasn’t enough; He also needed to rise again. There are many reasons why we believe that the resurrection was necessary. Let me share three with you.  First,...

Think About This

As a young man I was a Boy Scout. Part of Scouting was memorizing the Boy Scout Law. The first point was this: a Scout is trustworthy. Think about that word. Who do you know who is trustworthy? Is there someone you would trust with your life? One thing which makes a person trustworthy is their...

Think About This

Tomorrow is Groundhog Day, the time when Punxsutawney Phil will predict the weather for the next six weeks.  Studies show he’s right about 50% of the time, so plan accordingly.  On my way into church today I was listening to a radio show where listeners called in to predict the winners...

Think About This

Since last October we have been studying the Book of James. But after taking a month off for the Advent season, we probably will need a little refresher before we start back next Sunday. So here are the first two chapters of James in seven (or eight) sentences.  1. Consider it pure joy, my...

Think About This

At the first church I served as pastor we had a weekly insert in the bulletin called “Unsung Heroes.” The purpose was to honor those who worked long and hard behind the scenes to make things happen. We would list their name and what they did. The first two or three months it was easy to find people...

Think About This

This Thursday we pause to give thanks to the Lord for His many blessings toward us. I recently came across this poem by George Herbert which spoke volumes to me.  Thou that has given so much to me, Give one thing more -- a grateful heart; Not thankful when it pleases me, As if Thy blessings...

THINK ABOUT THIS AND THAT

John Piper once said, “Sin is what you do when your heart is not satisfied with God.” That is a sobering thought.  I might add that temptation is Satan’s way to make you dissatisfied with God. On Sunday we will explore the topic of temptation: what it is and how we can withstand it with God’s...
