I walked into a local grocery store on Saturday evening to pick up a gallon of milk, and that store was a sight to behold. Empty shelves. People with their carts stacked to the brim, and limits on certain items. I’ll admit if I were looking at this coronavirus scare through the eyes of my fl…

I marvel at the miracles Jesus performed in the Bible. In John 11 we read the story of two grieving sisters, Mary and Martha. They’d called for Jesus, but their brother, Lazarus, had been dead four days before the Lord arrived. I imagine they had no hope, but this parable reminds me that the…

LEWIS - At times I feel as if I am a spectator in my life. It’s like I’m looking down and events are transpiring before me. We all have rules and regulations in everyday life; still we make a multitude of decisions every day. Most importantly, we decide if we are going to make choices in our…

The message had ended and the pastor asked if everyone would come and pray in the altar. That seemed like a great idea considering it was the first day of the new year. It’s a time of letting go and a time of new beginnings, but that moment was more to me. It reminded me of the faithfulness …

What an amazing opportunity! John the Baptist was called to be the forerunner for Jesus Christ. Back in those days, it was not unusual for kings to have forerunners. They made sure the roads were passable; they let the people know a king was coming, and advised people to get ready for the king!

At times, I just sit back and chuckle. By the time I was 18 I thought I had my life figured out for the next decade or so. My plans went something like this. Graduate from high school, go to college, and move to a big city and get a job. I wasn’t interested in marriage or children; I wanted …
