The Hand of God

Ezra is surely becoming one of my favorite books. Prior to this current preaching series, I had never given a sermon from this Old Testament book. A few people have asked, "How did you decide to preach from Ezra?" "God guided me here," has been my standard response.

Bring Your Children to Jesus

BRING YOUR CHILDREN TO JESUS "Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ~Matthew 19:13-15 The above verses describe one of the most precious and intimate scene...

Supporting God's Servants

After a few weeks of providing sermon reviews on Mondays, I have decided to switch to Wednesdays. My hope is that you will use this sermon review to help you remember and respond to God's Word as it was presented on Sunday morning. Sermons are like homecooked meals, we need them for nourishment but often forget what we just ate. Inability to remember what we ate for lunch ...

Don't Waste Your Time

An elderly pastor was watching his fourteen month old grandson stumble around the church building after service one Sunday. He marvelled as the boy dodged legs and purses and occassionally grabbed a pant leg to keep his balance. Another older man approached the pastor and said of the grandson, "Isn't is sad that your grandson has to grow up during these times. American is ...
