HIDDEN BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

“For, at just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.” 1 Timothy 6:15  In 2 Kings 11, we see the story of Joash and how, as just a small child, God hid him and his caretaker away in a room in the Temple for “just the right time.” I can only imagine what it must have felt like in a dark room with no windows for seven whole years. Young Joash and his caretaker both must have wondered, “has God forgotten[…]

WHEN IT ALL COMES OUT

“In the same way, the good deeds of some people are obvious. And the good deeds done in secret will someday come to light.” 1 Timothy 5:25  For most of us, when we hear the phrase, “It will all come out eventually,” negative and fearful thoughts rush through our heads. We usually think of something we’ve done wrong, that we can’t even remember exactly, but are pretty sure we did. But 1 Timothy 5:25 sheds a different light on that phrase. Here, The Apostle Paul is encouraging Timothy to keep on doing good things even if others don’t know about[…]

DOUBLE SAVED

“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” 1 Timothy 4:16  When the flight attendant gives the safety briefing just before take-off, most people tend to look at their phone, a magazine, or stare out the window. But something struck me on a flight once that I’ll never forget. When she was giving instructions about putting on the oxygen mask, she said to first put on your own mask before helping the person next to you. The reality is, if you pass out, how can you possibly help[…]

YOU’RE RECEIVED

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3  Some time ago my youngest daughter and I were putting out concert posters and walked in a new business. I introduced myself to the shop owner and asked if we could put up a poster, to which she responded with a puzzled look on her face. She replied, “I really don’t know what to say.” I tried to ease the awkwardness and said kindly, “You don’t have to say anything. It’s okay.” “It’s no[…]

SANDWICHED BY GRACE

“May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.”  2 Thessalonians 3:18  Here in the South there’s nothing like a good sandwich. And here, a really good sandwich doesn’t have to be complicated, only a few basic components are necessary. Particularly in the spring and summer, you can choose pretty much any kind of filler or meat you like, but for me Dukes Mayonnaise is a must, a brand not widely seen around all parts of the country. And along with that Dukes Mayonnaise, fresh garden tomatoes this time of year are pretty awesome, with just a[…]

THE PRINCIPAL THING

“He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  2 Thessalonians 2:14  In 1 Kings 3 and 2 Chronicles 1, Solomon begins his reign as Israel’s third king by worshiping the Lord, and it wasn’t just any kind of worship!  By offering over 1,000 animal sacrifices to the Lord, it was an extraordinary, extravagant worship. The kind of worship that invoked a response from the Lord that came in the form of a visit through a vision and included a question. The question to Solomon[…]

WHEN THE MOUNTAIN DON’T MOVE

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 “No” is just not a favorite word for most people. Nothing makes a toddler push out their bottom lip and tears run down their face faster than the word “No.” As a “Believer” and a “Faith person,” I’m called to believe and not doubt, and when doubt tries to creep in, I’m to believe harder, deeper, and stronger. But, what do you do when the thing you’re believing God so deeply and earnestly[…]

SHAKE THAT FUNK

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:11  Have you ever had one of those moments when everything in life was going good, and yet a “funk” was trying to hit you? I’m a pretty positive and upbeat person, but I had one of those moments just recently. The kids where well, business was good and there was nothing to dread or worry about, yet this sly funk tried to creep in one recent afternoon. I wanted to pray, but as soon as I walked in the door of my home[…]

THE SECRET TO LIFE

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.” Jeremiah 17:7  According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition, “The dietary vitamin and supplement industry was a $122 billion industry back in 2016. Much of this growth has been driven by an increase in consumer demand for health and wellness products.”   Twenty years ago, it would have been hard to imagine that it would be possible for large retail chains, like GNC, to have stand-alone stores dedicated to just vitamins and nutritional supplements. It would have even been hard to imagine there would be enough consumer interest[…]

PRICELESS PRAISE

“Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens. You have done such wonderful things. Who can compare with you, O God?”  Psalm 71:19  Have you ever found yourself doing the very thing, or things, you swore you’d never do? Such was the case for Peter. On their last night together, just before His crucifixion, Jesus warned His disciples that one of them would betray him. They all looked around among themselves trying to figure out just who it could be. It was then that Peter spoke up and told the Lord he would never betray Him. He swore that[…]
