Faith Always Does What It Takes

Faith Always Does What It Takes   Faith is always forward moving. Faith is not idle. It does not cower. It presses through and it keeps going because faith does what it takes to see the outcome that faith is calling for. Faith does not accept defeat, make excuses, or stop believing because of pressure. Faith is inexhaustible and limitless in its…

He’s Healer, Not Destroyer

He’s Healer, Not Destroyer 1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV) says, “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” When Jesus died on the cross, He took all of our sin and all of our sickness upon His own body so that we wouldn’t have…

Whom Are You Seeking?

Whom Are You Seeking? John 18:7 (NKJV) Then He asked them again, “Whom are you seeking?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.” It’s a question that should be heavily pondered, “whom are you seeking.” There’s a lot today to grab our attention. There’s a lot of things enticing indeed but only one gives life. Jesus said as recorded in John 10:10, “I…

Summer Time and The Living’s Easy

Summer Time and The Living’s Easy So often the summer season is a very bitter sweet time as Pastors. We love the beautiful sunshine like the rest of the world, but we also know what it means for the local church as a whole and also for many individual lives. Oh yes, summer time… picnics, putt putt, boating, vacations, late nights and…

Resistance Is Not Futile

Resistance Is Not Futile James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. The greatest fight you will ever fight in life is what the Bible calls the good fight of faith (1Timothy 6:12).

Be Good Ground

Be Good Ground Matthew 13:3-9 Then Jesus spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of…

Find Your Place

Find Your Place 1 Corinthians 7:17 (NKJV) says, “But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all the churches.” That word distributed means to be separated into parts. When you come to Christ, God has called you to take your place, the place where He called…

Busy, Busy, Busy

Busy, Busy, Busy Mark 6:31 (NKJV) And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. In Western NY, summer time is an interesting time. For pastors, it can be bitter sweet. Since summer weather only lasts for a…

True Righteousness

True Righteousness God is righteous. Psalms 145:17 (NKJV) says, “The Lord is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works.” Righteous means just and right in conduct. God is righteous and just in all He thinks, says, and does. He’s right in ALL His ways. The Bible says that if we say we abide in Him, we ought to walk…

The Emotional Church

The Emotional Church Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Electricity is a wonderful thing. It changed the world forever when humans learned how to use it. Now because of electricity we have so many things we never could have. Just because electricity has so many…
