Should we ignore the world and its news, like an ostrich? As we come to a New Year, Psalm 2 giv...

The Word became Flesh

Jesus-mager-to-cross-resized

Dear Friends, I trust you are doing well and looking forward to Sunday. In my opinion, the most amazing event in all of history occurred at Christmas when the eternal second person of the Godhead, at a point in time became a man, assuming human flesh all the while never ceasing to be God. John in the opening of his gospel put it this way:"The Word became flesh" (John 1...

Jesus: Full of Grace and Truth

The Apostle John in the opening of his gospel tells the Christmas story without Joseph or Mary, without the baby, without the stable, without the manger, without the shepherds, without the wise men, without the star, without the angels, without all the familiar components of the Christmas story. John gives us the real story of what was happening. It's a theological look...

In my opinion, the unsung hero of the Christmas story is Joseph.Little is known about him, he never speaks in the recorded narrative, but he was clearly a godly, forgiving, compassionate man.The following story, told by Lynn Clayton, longtime editor of the Baptist message to another pastor, bears t...

Born to Die

Jesus-mager-to-cross-resized

There are a myriad of answers to the simple question:"Why was Jesus born?" "Why did He come to earth?"The secondary reasons for his coming are:to present God to humanity;to teach truth; to fulfill law; to offer His kingdom; to teach those who did not understand about God;to reveal love; to bring peace; to heal the sick and more. But the one primary purpose for Jesus com...

You have the Words of Eternal Life!

All of us have known people who professed faith in Christ, who seemed to follow Him for some time, but then fall away. In some cases, they have even served in the ministry, turned away from the Lord, and lived as unbelievers. John 6 begins with Jesus having a massive following of some 20,000 people all singing His praises after He fed them the loaves and fishes.By chapt...

Today we return to our regular sermon series, as a recap let's remember that Jesus founded only one organization while He was here on earth and that was His church. The only organization, organism, institution the Lord Jesus founded and the only one He promised to bless. A painful but necessary aspect of church leadership is the disciplining of those who have done wrong...
