Someone Else

Just spitballin’ here, but it’s something that I think may help someone out there today, I know it does me. Someone else can be really, really good. Having someone else to blame f …

How He Loves

We love him because He first loved us.  This is the motivation for change.  The agent of change is the Holy Spirit.  I just need to get that out there right away.  The Lord has given us both the motive and the means but now we need to provide the do.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 9:9–10 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. …

Amazing Grace

Vote Your Faith

The election season is in full force.    To be honest, I have no zeal for any candidate currently in the race.  That being said, we should still vote according to the character and qualifications of the candidate.  We ought to consider the term pro-life to be a litmus test for those that we support.  May God guide as we choose our next president, the economy isn’t everything; as a matter of fact, a poor economy may often conceal and embolden the enemies of morality and godliness. …

Need an Adjustment

As I have been studying through the book of Philippians for the third time now, God still amazes me.  In church this past Wednesday I preached from chapter 1 verses 20-26.  It’s taken us 3-4 weeks to get this …

A Thought on Philippians 4 and 1 Peter 5

It’s still hard to believe how the unexpected near death of my daughter Kierstin when she was born, affected our lives for the better. I moved from being a negative, if it can go wrong it will go wrong, anxious person, to a person grounded in the Word of God and the God of the Word. Because of this trial the Lord has enabled me to minister to a diverse group of people.

That didn’t make it easy to go through; and we are still g …

Operation Renovation

Acts, Galatians, Romans 12, James, Sermon on the Mount, the Gospels

Operation Renovation…  As I think of the title of my blog I realize that it incorporates many things.

It is the theme of our church for this year.  It has led us to renovate our property to be more suitable for the type of ministry the Lord has called me to.  We are changing our foyer into a gathering place, a lobby where people can sit and talk, where teaching and fellowship can happen.  It …

Becoming a Jesus Church

Becoming a Jesus Church requires much. It requires a man to lead like Jesus. It requires a church to be consumed with Jesus; loving and living like Him as we journey on this earth. It requires a steadfast obedience and single-minded determination to keep Jesus at the front of all that we do.
Being a Jesus Man, Choosing a Jesus ManChoose well my brethren, be well my brothers… there is no moreimportant decision a church can …

Five Things

This is from Missionary Rudy Johnson. He is the real deal and was with us this past weekend. He invested in me from Thursday through Sunday just to be a blessing. It’s entitled Five Things that Cause Men to Fail …

Vision?

I’ve been thinking about vision lately.  Maybe it’s because our year end is rapidly approaching, maybe it’s because God is impressing me with the need to give some direction to His …

Someone Else II

Been thinking that the last post was just the beginning.  We have many in churches that are focused on themselves and not on someone else.  Today I was speaking wi …

Children in Church

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon.

“How do you know what to say?” he asked. 

“Why, God tells me,” the father answered.

The boy replied, “Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?”

Malachi 4:6 ( KJV )
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,

Song Leader or Worship Pastor?

In my church, we have had a history of Song Directors.  I was the Song Director or Music Minister for about 9 years.  As many of you may know from reading my blog or attending the church that I have been privileged to pastor, I have been going through many paradigm shifts.  As matter of fact the title of this blog reflects these shifts, hopefully from man’s way to God’s way.

Viciously Contend for the Faith?

Jude verse 3

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

Praying for Your Charge

The book Colossians is becoming one of my favorite books of the Bible.  This first chapter speaks to me as a minister and pastor. Within these verses I find a challenge not only to pray for the flock under my care, but HOW to pray for them. Included in this chapter is so much more than this challenge, there is instruction and information concerning our salvation and who we are in Christ. It is as though there were layers laid up for the student of Scripture to revel in.

Colossians 1:3 …
