  • The Unfelt Christ

    10/20/2022 George Whitefield was the great British evangelist of the 18th century. On a trip to America to preach and evangelize, Whitefield make this stinging observation: “I am greatly persuaded that the generality of preachers talk of an unknown, unfelt Christ. And the reason why congregations have been so dead is because dead men preach to them.” Continue reading…

  • Will I Go to Heaven?

    10/19/2022 I’ve been asked this question a few times. “Pastor, as a Christian, do I have to ask God for forgiveness for every sin? If I die suddenly in a car wreck and haven’t been able to ask for forgiveness for all the sins of that day will I still go to Heaven?” Here’s the problem with this kind of thinking: it confuses “sonship” and fellowship.

  • Hope for Weary Pastors

    10/18/2022 I ran across this statistic recently that said eighty percent of pastors’ wives wish their husbands would choose another profession. Wow! And it said fifty percent of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry immediately if they could make a living any other way. Yikes! Half the pastors want to do something else! Continue reading…

  • A Wise Word for Wives

    10/17/2022 A lady asked me one day, "my husband says he is a Christian, but he surely doesn’t act like it. Pastor Jeff, I'm frustrated, angry and discouraged. What am I to do?" I told her this, first of all, you must remember that you can't change your husband. Only God can do that. You can only change you as you yield yourself to the Lord. Continue reading…

  • Take Every Thought Captive

    10/14/2022 God wants us to put a security guard at the entrance of our mind. He wants us to take “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” EVERY THOUGHT! The list of acceptable thoughts God approves is found in Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.” Continue reading…

  • The Wonderful Counselor

    10/13/2022 In Isaiah 9:6, the Bible calls Jesus, the Messiah, the Wonderful Counselor. Do you know why that name is so great and comforting for us? Because life can be very hard at times. Life can beat you to the ground and leave you for dead. Troubles and trials can come like a tornado and leave us devastated and bewildered. And in those time, we desperately need a wise friend who loves us and can counsel us to help us get through the toughest of times. Continue reading…

  • Defeat the Lies of the Devil

    10/12/2022 In Psalm 15, King David writes these words, “Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.” Do you have thoughts that build you up in the Lord and encourage your faith ... or are your thoughts those that tear you down and fill your heart with fear and woe? Continue reading…

  • It Takes Practice

    10/11/2022 Practice is essential to the Christian life. Paul told the Christians in Philippi "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you." Philippians 4:9. You see, it is not enough to know the truth. We must apply the truth to our lives so we can receive the benefit and blessing from the truth. Continue reading…

  • The Happiness Confusion

    10/10/2022 Many people are confused about happiness. They equate happiness with money and materialism. To them, happiness is a million dollars. Other people equate happiness with good physical health. To them, happiness is an in-shape body hitting on all eight cylinders. Still, to other, happiness is a big promotion, or graduation, or reaching a milestone. But the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 2:25: For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him? Scripture makes it clear that true happiness comes when you and I are right with God. Continue reading…
