UPDATE – IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PASTOR DAVE

By |2020-04-18T21:15:02+00:00April 18th, 2020|Transforming Daily|

Greetings, Earthlings!  I hope you are missing us as much as we are missing you.  I'm certain all of you have been keeping up on the Covid 19 status and how it is effecting our community, state and nation.  In the last couple of days, there have been reports that our country, state and community [...]

One Accord In Prayer

By |2020-04-07T03:17:25+00:00April 7th, 2020|Pastor's Devotional|

“…. one accord in prayer ….” Acts 1:14 Have you ever heard of anyone being taught how to swim by being thrown into the water out of a boat? That’s how my brother-in-law, Jesse Touchton, taught me how to pray in public.  We were sitting in a McDonalds restaurant after school one afternoon. He took off his [...]

Grounded

By |2020-04-06T15:56:48+00:00April 6th, 2020|Transforming Daily|

Among many of the ways my father used to discipline me ("discipline," for those of you born after 1970, was a way parents used to get the attention of their children, i.e., spankings, withholding meals, and being grounded were just some of the ways discipline was administered) grounding was probably the worst.  Im not talking [...]

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR

By |2020-04-02T01:19:51+00:00April 2nd, 2020|Transforming Daily|

As you know, the country has been facing a rare form of adversity through the virus Covid -19.  CDC, WHO, state and local government officials have deemed it safer to stay at home, accept for essential appointments and travel, in an attempt to stave off the spread of the virus.  And while Clearview has been [...]

Shield Of Faith

By |2020-03-29T03:11:36+00:00March 29th, 2020|Pastor's Devotional|

The phrase, shield of faith,  comes from Ephesians 6:16.  It's a part of the description of the "Whole armor of God."  It is accompanied by: the waist girded with truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit.  Another way to [...]

Spirit Of Love 1 Timothy 1:7

By |2020-03-28T23:15:19+00:00March 28th, 2020|Transforming Daily|

Any, and practically every, adversity is an opportunity in which to be fearful.  It's really the unknown of any given set of circumstances that gives rise to fear and undue concern.  Trust, on the other hand, is the discipline that dispels fear and anxiety.  Not just blind or ignorant trust, but genuine dependence on that [...]

Behold The Maidservant Of The Lord

By |2017-12-09T22:13:53+00:00December 9th, 2017|Transforming Daily|

This time of the year, the first couple of chapters in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke are addressed like no other time of the year.  This is the time of the year that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. In Luke 1:26-38, the story of Christ's conception and birth is recorded.  The message [...]

Christmas

By |2017-12-09T18:58:18+00:00December 9th, 2017|Pastor's Devotional|

Ponder this season what Christmas means to you.  Search your heart and mind as to how the word “Christmas” affects you. Christmas for me, first and foremost, is a time of celebration for the birth of The Lord, Jesus Christ.  Irrespective of the efforts of nay sayers and those who would nitpick the “actual” birth [...]

Nevertheless Thy Will Be Done

By |2017-11-02T21:55:52+00:00November 2nd, 2017|Pastor's Devotional|

The will of God, one of the simplest concepts to understand yet one of the most complex to explain.  Falling under the heading of The Sovereignty of God, the doctrine has probably brought more debate in the last five centuries than any other, especially when applied to salvation.  Take the doctrine of the hypostatic union [...]

What Happens In Vegas Doesn’t Always Stay In Vegas

By |2017-10-04T22:25:30+00:00October 4th, 2017|Pastor's Devotional|

It's been a couple of days since the tragic shooting in Las Vegas.  Enough time for much speculation, pontification and "should've, could've, would've's" from political pontiffs, bantoring broadcasters and liberal lobbyists as well as foolish "Fundamentalists."  Everyone has the answer after the fact, but what about before?!  The suggestions range anywhere from taking guns away [...]
