BE THERE!

July 3, 2010

Last week’s message one for my personal record books.  I preached a message titled “BE THERE”. It’s a passion of mine for people to see the value of “being the church” by “being at church.” Yes, there is a demonic paradigm that deceives people in believing that attending church is not necessary.  Unfortunately, this is…

THE EPITOME OF RESPONSIBILITY

July 1, 2010

We all have the potential to lead and influence. And that influence has been given various arenas in life for its application.  I believe in the phrase “every believer is a leader.” It doesn’t imply that there be  “all chiefs and no indians,” rather, that everyone has a range of fields in their lives where…

THE SIMPLICITY OF KEEPING OUR SALVATION

June 30, 2010

I think we tend to complicate Christian living many times.  This morning I dug into the book of Philippians.  It took a while for me to finish the first chapter, it’s just so rich with principles of motivation and encouragement – its builds such a driving force to complete the assignment God has given us.…

FACEBOOK DEBATE..

June 28, 2010

I couldn’t resist the temptation last week to comment on an individual’s Facebook status.  The status was in a form of a question that exasperated me.  And my comments to it seemed to ignite a Facebook thread debate. The status read, “Does church do to people what zoos do to animals… make them tame, safe…

YIELDING

June 25, 2010

I’m at our off-site retreat with our executive board and pastoral staff. The Lord is already doing some great things in us. I guess I’m a bit knuckle-headed,  I should have done this several times already, if not, once a year.  I guess in my “older years” I’m beginning to wise up. I think I’m…

OFF-SITE… Pray for us…

June 23, 2010

We are at a season in our church where the steps we take must be very cautious.   I’m taking more time away this weekend to try to find some answers in the direction we are heading as a church.   All I know is that we need Jesus in our lives more than ever. We need…

RECOVERY TIME…

June 22, 2010

I’ve been nursing a severe back injury since last Tuesday. And one thing I can tell you is that I can’t wait until I’m back to full capacity.  I’ve come to realize that every situation in our lives carry a lesson that reinforces a Kingdom principle.  In this case, I’ve learned something about recovery. I…

SEEKING, SEARCHING, INQUIRING

June 21, 2010

It appears that anything and everything that is of any value in the Kingdom of God has to be sought after.  God has a technique of NOT placing anything on our laps.  There has to be a pursuit.  That is why He told us to ask, seek and knock after the keys of the Kingdom.…

LYING DOWN ON MY BACK…

June 18, 2010

I’m writing to you today in an unfortunate position. I’m lying down on my back and trying not to move. Once in a while, my lower back goes out.  Unfortunately, I’ve had that problem since I was a child.  Apparently, I have a slight deformation of the 5th lumbar (called the L5 vertebrae) thus causing…
