When All Else Fails, You Still Are God

Habakkuk 1: 1 – 4; 2: 1 – 4 In August of 2005 many people around the world were made aware of one more sad example of the violence and evil that exists in our world. So typical an example, in fact, that it didn’t merit even a mention in many local newspapers.  It was, after all ‘just’ the death …

Something to Live For

Ecclesiastes 1: 1-2, 8- 14, 2: 17 – 23;  Luke 12: 13 – 21 We’ve all been in situations where someone has said to us: “I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news…which one do you want first?”  And we usually say – “Give me the bad news!”, because we generally want the last word to be something positive.  …

Restored

Joel 2: 23 – 32 Anybody who uses a computer probably knows something about “restoration”.  Because, anyone who has ever saved a file has at some point probably also lost a file, a document, an entire hard drive! It’s the law of the land. ** Do you remember when Palm Pilot’s were “the thing”? (This picture)   I used to …

Into Temptation

Matthew 4: 1 – 11 The account of Jesus’ Wilderness Temptation is a fascinating story because it reveals so much depth about the mind of Jesus and the character of Jesus. That’s important because Jesus, remember, on numerous occasions, to many different people, gave this clear invitation: “follow me.” And on many other occasions, he invited people to “learn from …

Your Darkest Valley

(Psalm 23, Matthew 10:29-31) …What happened is that I found myself in a rut… (another more apt metaphor would be a ‘valley’) for a number of weeks when I was doing uncharacteristic things like waking up in the middle of the night. I don’t mean restless, I mean wide awake… eyes wide open, pulse pounding, blood pressure raising kind of …

Success God’s Way

Psalm 118: 25 Philip Yancey wrote a typically interesting book a few years ago entitled Rumors of Another World. The theme that runs throughout this entire book is the thought that we, (i.e., Christians) are part of two realms – we live in this flesh and blood, ‘material’ world, but our ultimate destiny is to be with God forever in …

Some Things Never Change

Psalm 36 Whenever I find myself in a time of great emotion — particularly in a time of conflicting emotions, when I’m not sure what I should even feel  — more often than not at some point I end up turning to the book of Psalms.  It seems that I always find the ability in those ancient poems to put …

Laws and Grace

Exodus 20: 1 – 4, 7 – 9, 12 – 20; Psalm 19 I remember once buying a new keyboard for the Praise Team in Moorestown – (a musical keyboard). The one they had been using before that was ‘state of the art’ when they bought it, but, you know, the years go by pretty fast, and the next thing …

Deep and Wide

Psalm 1: 1 – 6; Luke 13: 6 – 9 Jesus’ parable in Luke 13 is not one that we likely have heard a lot of sermons on.  It’s a short vignette, based, as many of Jesus’ parables are, on a part of life that would have been very familiar to most of the people who first heard this story. …

A Celebration of Discipleship

Jeremiah 31: 31 – 34 For the past three weeks, using the metaphor of a vineyard, or a garden, we have been walking through some ‘pillars’ of our discipleship. We looked at the importance of having a plan for our Spiritual Growth – to have a clear idea of how we are going to nourish our souls through spiritual disciplines …
