  • True joy in your life will come in the mourning

    This summer my church is doing a sermon series on the beatitudes, the “blessed ares” that Jesus taught his disciples.

    He said things like, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” and “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”

    “Blessed” means happy, and so to say happy are the poor, happy are the meek, happy are those who are persecuted because of righteousness -- well, it doesn’t make sense.

    Or does it?

  • Are you salt? Or have you become stale, sluggish?

    “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Matthew 5:13 (NASB)

    The context of Matthew 5:13 informs us that Jesus traveled all over the region of Galilee teaching, preaching, and healing all kinds of sickness and disease. And as he traveled,

    Great multitudes or crowds followed him for many different reasons.

  • Pastor’s story demonstrates that ‘this is love y’all’

    Several weeks ago, my pastor told a story that had people whispering, “Whoa.”

    It happened years ago when a young, pregnant woman came to our church and gave her life to Jesus.

    The baby had problems developing and had to undergo an extensive delicate surgery while still in the womb.

    Our whole church was praying and praying as this miracle unfolded in front of us.

    The baby girl was born prematurely with all kinds of physical problems and went through several more surgeries and was in the hospital for months.

  • Sometimes grace rides a dirt bike

    Last Saturday I went to a graduation unlike any other I’ve attended.

    No caps and gowns. No “Pomp and Circumstance.”

    Just a bunch of rag-tag kids with behavior problems.

    George Schmalstig, a local guy in the community who has spent most of his career working with juvenile offenders, heads up a nonprofit organization that takes at-risk kids and teaches them stuff they need to know to keep them from a lifetime in and out of jail.

    He uses dirt bikes to do it.

  • My enemy, my friend

    The most “Jesus” of all Jesus statements is the one that even Christians are most likely to resist. And for good reason, because it deprives us of one of the sweetest rewards on earth: retaliation.
