5 Reasons Why God May Be Silent

0

Not long ago, my friend Steve asked when was the last time I experienced God’s silence. I told him that I have had many notable times in my life when God was not speaking. Looking back, I can explain the reason--the best I understand it--for each one of those seasons. I told Steve about my transition to become the senior...

“Abide” – What Does it Mean to “Remain in Christ”?

0

This weekend I started the new sermon series called “Abide”. For two weeks we will be studying what God says through His Word in Chapter 15 of John. Perhaps there is no more important sermon Christ gave while on earth than the simple instruction to abide in Him. But what does that really mean? What does it look like for...

Write to Experience Life Twice?

0

I once heard a person say this: “I write so that I can experience life twice.” At first I loved this quote. The thought of experiencing this blessed life twice by capturing it on paper was exhilarating. To recall sweet memories, feelings and the faces of those you love is always a wonderful exercise. But then there are those days that you...

Are We Asking the Wrong Questions?

0

There is a lot of buzz lately about what is going on in our culture. It seems like things that were once immoral are now legal and what is legal goes against what the church has always stood for. Christians have a way of getting worked up over things the world decides, as if we expected them to act more...

Bible Verses for the Depressed

0

Though it is not something I am proud of, I have to admit that the last few days have been some of the hardest days I’ve had in a long time. The number of sermons yet to be prepared and preached were overwhelming to me. I was burdened by the responsibilities of the church. The shambles my personal life...

The Blind Preacher Who Saw Quite Well: A Short Bio of George Matheson

11

Some of the people who have impacted me the most in this life are those who have already passed from it. The preachers and writers of old have recorded deep thoughts about God that still echo through the generations and continue to proceed from their grave. One of those men is George Matheson, otherwise known as “The Blind Preacher.” In 1842...

Is God on Facebook?

0

I remember when Facebook first started. It was one of those seemingly faddish websites that was sweeping college campuses, and I refused to be a part. Eventually, my sister convinced me to register – she was sure it would be the key to keeping our communication intact over the 1016 miles that separated us while I lived in Chicago. Now...

The Messiah in the Book of Isaiah

3

The storyline of redemption unfolds throughout the Holy Scriptures and reveals God’s intent to reconcile people to Himself and establish His kingdom on earth. With each turn of the page we find a piece of His plan fall into place, His promises kept, and His prophecies fulfilled. The book of Isaiah is one of the clearest depictions of all...

A Unexpected Meal with A Soldier and 3 Insights for All of Us

0

Travelers from around the world scurried through the walkway in front of me. I grabbed my dried-out breakfast burrito from a hole-in-the-wall cafe and found a seat. The few tables that were located in the hallway were occupied by others just trying to find a restful place while filling their stomaches. I found one empty table and sat down across...
