The Pastors Heart

“Going all the way”, Many of God’s promises are conditional. That is, they are granted only if certain conditions are met. One such promise is familiar to many Christians.  (Romans 8:28), “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his […]

After the teen and C and C hike on Sunday Daniel shared a great devotional from God’s Word on encouragement. It is a huge and important part of the Christian life to encourage others in the faith! Let us all try harder to find something to encourage others about, and let us do less complaining about […]

The Pastors Heart

(Colossians 3:1), “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.” We must ask ourselves…Am I truly saved…Am I a new creature in Christ. The answer lies in what occupies your heart and mind. What is your heart and mind focused […]

As sinners, our call is to salvation. As saints, our call is to suffering. There is the Cross for Crist. And there is also the cross for the believer.–L. E. Maxwell

The Pastors Heart

(Romans 10:14), “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”   As the priesthood of the believers, we all have a responsibility to share the Gospel with unbelievers. If we […]

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” When my courage seems so small and slips away, when sin seeks to pull […]

Endurance…(2 Timothy 1:12), “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” No one knows the future but God…I’m not worried about what might […]

The Pastors Heart

(Genesis 12:3), “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Christians today probably do not do enough blessing. Yes, we say a blessing at meals or on special church occasions. But we often seem to be lax in offering […]

The Pastors Heart

(Ps.116:2), “Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live” Love is the child of gratitude. Love grows as gratitude is felt and then breaks out into praise and thanksgiving to God. I love the Lord because He “hath heard the voice of my weeping […]

The Pastors Heart

(2Peter 1:4), “by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”         Our human minds can not imagine the exceedingly great and precious things that God has in store for the […]
