Five Lessons Hurricane Harvey Teaches Us

Five Lessons Hurricane Harvey Teaches Us Did God have anything to do with the monstrous storm that wreaked havoc in Texas for several days? Some will argue that God was simply an interested observer; after all, the laws of nature rule in this fallen world. But intuitively people know that God was in charge. I’m sure that even those who had not prayed in years called on God in their distress, asking Him to control their circumstances. And, of course, as believers we know that God was not just an interested bystander. The book of Job is instructive here. God … Read More >

Thanksgiving Changes Everything!

If you’ve never experienced the power of thanksgiving, you need an attitude adjustment. When we read Paul’s directive to “give thanks in all circumstances” (1 Th 5:18), we might think that doing so is either impossible or irrelevant. We might even think we don’t have much for which to give thanks. Yet, this is exactly what Paul taught—we are to give thanks in all circumstances: the bad, the good, the promotions, and the demotions. Thanksgiving is a game-changer. It honors God by affirming His sovereignty. When we give thanks, we affirm that He is in charge of everything and that … Read More >

A Brief Admonition To The Church At This Political Moment

I have always had a concern for “the church to be the church,” but never before have I been so burdened by how we look to the watching world. When I am told there are families that cannot talk to each other because of differing political views, when I hear there is rancor within churches over one political position or another, I am compelled to write a few words at this time, as we watch Washington trying to sort out its political impasse on the world stage. I think the Apostle Paul would have a word for us at this … Read More >

Standing on God's Promises in the New Year

This is Pastor Lutzer, wishing you a very blessed New Year. We don’t know what 2018 is going to hold, but this much I know (and I’m sure that you are assured of it as well), and that is, we are going to live our lives dependent upon the promises of God. When I was a boy growing up, we used to sing the song Standing on the Promises. Well, that’s where I want to stand this year; and I hope that that’s where you want to stand! Because it’s the promises of God that can take us all the … Read More >

Day 3 – The Submission of Jesus

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:35-36Today’s Reference: 1 Peter 4:13 “But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” Humanly speaking, Jesus didn’t want to die on the Cross. Despite His fears, He still said to His Father, “Not what I will, but what You will.” Sometimes we have to do the will of God whether we like it or not. We live in a society where “feeling bad” is a sin we must avoid at all costs. But Jesus shows us that’s not God’s way. Being filled with the … Read More >
