I WILL REMEMBER…

“I yawned as the organist began playing the Communion hymn, then my eyelids slowly dropped and I fell to dreaming. I dreamed I was there, at that first Communion service, two centuries ago. Because of the Passover, the streets were crowded, but I finally arrived at my friend’s house. Since I was late, I was […]

HISTORY…

SOMEONE HAS SAID, “IF WE DON’T LEARN FROM THE PAST, WE WILL RELIVE IT IN THE FUTURE.”  It really bothers me to hear of tearing down historical statues, whether we agree with them or not. They are reminders of our past history and we ought to allow them to remind us of those events.  Removal […]

I MEANT TO GO BACK

The Gospel of Luke, the 17th chapter, verses 11 through 19, tells the story of Jesus healing ten lepers. Only one of the ten returned with an expression of thanksgiving.  This poem suggests what might have been thought by one of the other nine.  It just may help us to have right thoughts in this Thanksgiving […]

SIMPLY CHURCH

Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 “I will build MY CHURCH.”  The question I ask is, what is the original Bible name of the church?  GOD NEVER NAMED THE CHURCH.  You never need to name something when there is only one.   Paul writing to the church at Ephesus wrote in chapter one, verses 22 and […]

A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY

Edward Everett Hale wrote the story “The Man Without a Country,” It is about a young Army lieutenant, named Philip Nolan, who stands condemned for treason during the Revolutionary War. When the judge asks him if he wishes to say anything before sentence is passed, young Nolan defiantly exclaims, “Damn the United States. I wish […]

Foreigners

A devotion from David Simpson, Minister – Lanier Christian Church, Gainesville, Georgia “There’s a lot of talk in the news these days about illegal aliens, foreigners in our land. Without getting political, I am reminded that all Christians are foreigners. 1 Peter 1:7 says: “…live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.” In […]

“Oh how much He cared for me”

My good friend, Bobby Awtrey, minister with the Light House Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia sent out this article. “It is not difficult to sing when all is going well.  But often God gives a special song to one of his hurting children during the night times of their life.  Believers find new joys in […]

GOD DID

When our son, Dan, was just a young boy, his mother took him to the store to buy a bathing suit. The suit was purchased and when they got home, Jo noticed a tear in the cloth of the swimming suit. She was upset because she didn’t have time to return the suit nor to […]

FINALLY HOME

This song was sung by our Praise Team Homecoming Sunday at  Lester Road Christian Church.  It thrilled my soul.  So meaningful that I want you to read it.  Every Christian will find this at the end of our journey here in this world. “Engulfed by the terror of tempestuous sea, unknown waves before you roll;  […]

WHAT DOES LOVE DO?

“It’s love, it’s love, that makes the world go round.” “What the world needs now, is love.” These were popular songs a few years back. And, how correct they are. The Apostle Paul wrote in the 13th chapter of First Corinthians, “without love you are nothing (zero)” Since love is absolutely critical in our living, […]
