• Everyone is ‘appropriate’ to go inside God’s house

    The Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. (Jeremiah 31:3 ESV)

    Recently, I attended the funeral of a fallen police officer in a very large community.

    As I parked our city’s car among the hundreds of police cars, I was amazed at the sea of blue uniforms in attendance. But what struck me and made the topic of this column is what I heard when I got out of the car. 

  • Fall festival Nov. 13

  • We live righteously because God saved us

    Paul’s writing to the Philippian’s said, I don’t want to be self righteous by obeying the law but I desire righteousness that comes by faith in Jesus Christ.

    First, let me say, I don’t believe Paul was saying we no longer need to live a righteous life. When we read Romans 6:1, Paul asked a question: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

    Then Paul answers the question. “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”
