  Someone told me about a man. A father of five, a fine man by all accounts, nice to co-workers and customers, as well as, strangers. He was taking his eldest son to check out a prominent college. On the way, their vehicle was struck by another vehicle, and sadly, both of them were killed.  [...]

2020, O Say, Can You See?

By |2020-12-11T03:38:35+00:00December 11th, 2020|Pastor's Devotional|

The level of fear and angst for most of this year, 2020, has gripped the hearts of many.  Yet others have more than survived, they've flourished.  What's the difference?  Oversimplified, the answer is faith.  Faith always dominates reason, or at least it should.  I have found that the biggest component of fear, or the cause [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Hurricane Irma

By |2017-09-06T15:44:30+00:00September 6th, 2017|Pastor's Devotional|

I've been pondering hurricane Irma for a few days now.  Just like many, I've been watching and praying she would go away as she has stubbornly developed into a category 5 (presently) storm.  Obviously my prayer is that Irma would dissipate, disintegrate, and dissolve.  As the various news outlets forecast their version of "spaghetti model" [...]

Social Media

By |2017-08-28T02:13:07+00:00August 28th, 2017|Pastor's Devotional|

Social media is not a new concept.  One of social media's most notable violations is referred to in Scripture recorded as the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) When our children were younger (way before cell phones and internet etc.), don't know who said it first, but I used to tell them, "If lips would keep [...]
