Why Move?

Numbers 13-14 1) Because God said so. Moses had to lead the people because God called Him to accomplish this task. Exodus 3 and 4 we see Moses making excuse after excuse about this mission. He went, though, because God commanded that he go. The same is true with the spies. God was telling them

What Have We Learned? Purpose Driven Life

Deuteronomy 11:1-2 Joke: 87 year old woman goes out on a date with a 97 year old man. “I had to slap him three times.” Did he get fresh with you? No, I slapped him to see if he were still alive. We don’t want the world slapping us to see if we are alive.

Luke 1:26-38 Begin with the pastor who went to the church in the snow and dropped into the plate $5.00. That is the amount the deacon paid him. Just think, said the boy, if we had given more we would have gotten more.When we think of Christmas, we rightfully think of the ultimate gift God

The Time is Now

2 Timothy 4 There are some things that you cannot put off . . . you must do it right away or lose your opportunity. Once mother asked me to mow our yard. Growing up we had a fairly large yard (an acre and ½), the back was a 20 degree grade and the front

The Revival I’m Praying For

Nehemiah 8 Seeing God work in the people to complete the task had a great affect on the people. 1) Nehemiah 8:1 The people were of one heart . . . When you go through adversity and depend upon God, God uses this to bring the hearts of the people together. When God’s people have one

The Open Door of Opportunity

Revelation 3:7-13 1. Revelation 3:7 To the angel (angelos or messenger). Many theologians believe (and I concur) that this “angel” or messenger is the pastor. Therefore, to the pastor of the church in Philadelphia . Philadelphia was the youngest of the seven cities. It was founded  around 140 BC. It was called Philadelphia because it means “one who loves his brother.”
