In addition, rejoice in the Lord

Getting ready for small group lesson tomorrow night. This is how the text begins:

“In addition, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. To write to you again about this is no trouble for me and is a safeguard for you.” Philippians 3:1 CSB

Paul seems to be saying that, no matter what is […]

A Wonderful Thing

We’ve been wending our way through the book of Hebrews in Sunday school at Faith Baptist. Last week’s lesson ended in Chapter 10, verse 31, which reads “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” As we looked at the passage, we looked back at an incident in David’s life […]

On your way to church

O Lord,

We are going to the house of prayer, pour upon us the spirit of grace and supplication; 

We are going to the house of praise, awaken in us every grateful and cheerful emotion;

We are going to the house of instruction, give testimony to the Word preached, and glorify it in the hearts […]

Wisdom for Spartans and Wolverines from Ecclesiastes

For the Spartan fans, remember “Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” From Ecclesiastes 7:8

For the Wolverines, read on in verses 9 and 10. “Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart […]

Praise God together today

When you go to church today, and they sing a hymn or chorus or other type of song, think of the words in this Psalm, and sing out loud. Sing together with those around you, singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, and, as Thomas Ken said so very long ago, “Praise God from whom all […]

Why go to church on Sunday?

David gives a reason in Psalm 5:

Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your house; I will worship at your Temple with deepest awe. Lead me in the right path, O LORD, or my enemies will conquer me. Make your way plain for me to follow.

But let all who take refuge in […]

Time to eat!

Thank you, Lord, for your faithful provision. Forgive me for my ingratitude.

A very good first step

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act, making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday. Psalm 37:5-6 HCSB

If it’s legal is it right?

It is not proper simply because it is permissible, nor is it ethical because it is legal.

It’s almost like Commissioner Reagan was reading from Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.

Far more abundantly

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV)

I was studying this statement by Paul […]
