Football Games and Evangelism

This past weekend began (for nearly everyone) the college football season. For all the teams it began with eyes on the prize. That prize, the title of champion! Now we know there are several different championships, but every team on the field is aspiring to their particular championship. With that said, how did it go? Well, half the teams are undefeated, and the other half are 0-1 -- they lost, they were defeated, they are deflated, but none of them are destroyed. It was, for all the teams, the first step in the rest of the season. Some of the...
Daddy is a Wonderful word

Daddy is a Wonderful word

Earlier this week I head a local news report detail how the new head coach of our NFL team had taken time from his hectic schedule to toss the softball with his daughter.  Not a big deal you might think, but given the pressure of leading a professional football team out of the seller, it was a time and priority issue.  He made the right choice. This story caused me to reflect on some of my fondest memories of my on daddy.  He had retired from the US Navy and was working for the NC Department of Corrections where tensions...
The Sovereignty of God

The Sovereignty of God

When I have time I tune in to one or more of the "news" channels which inundate the airwaves with their product.  Like most, it does not take long for the news to turn my stomach, so I simply tune to something more refreshing.  The past few weeks have filled the minds of many with thoughts of deep panic and concern.  So many have called me to share their concern over events happening globally.  "What should I take from the events?" is the most often asked question.  While I do not believe any one has the answer to the problem,...
That I may know Him

That I may know Him

Oswald Chambers said, "The aim of a spiritually vigorous saint is “that I may know Him . . .” Do I know Him where I am today? If not, I am failing Him. I am not here for self-realization, but to know Jesus Christ. In Christian work our initiative and motivation are too often simply the result of realizing that there is work to be done and that we must do it. Yet that is never the attitude of a spiritually vigorous saint. His aim is to achieve the realization of Jesus Christ in every set of circumstances." (read devotional)...

Images of the Cross  The cross is a constant reminder of the grace, love and mercy of God.  As I have had the opportunity to be away for a few days of rest and relaxation I have been amazed at the wonderful ways God reminds me of His love.  As I sit on the porch of our condo it seems that my eyes are drawn to images of the cross.  These images might be nothing more that the beams of a condo unit across the way, the shape of a tree in the distance, or even an oddly shaped cloud...

Continuing in Faith God continues to do wonderful things in and through the life of His dear ones.  I am so blessed to witness the grand works of God around the globe.  Last week, while preaching in my local church, I saw the Father do some incredible things! I have been preaching through the book of Acts and on that Sunday I was preaching from 16: 11-15.   Following the message I witnessed four former Catholics come forward during the invitation to express, not only their faith in Christ, but their desire to follow the Lord Jesus in baptism.  There...
