Matt and Gina Reach Out

Kira was in the bedroom folding the laundry when the phone rang. She picked it up. "Hello?" "Hello, Kira. It's Matt." "Hello, Matt. It's always a pleasure to hear from you. How is everyone?"

The Lord’s Promises

The Lord's promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over (Psalm 12:6) I can always count on the Lord to keep His promises.  When I was looking for a church, He promised that He would help me to find one.  And He did.  He had promised to take care of …

Stand Firm

Overhead the clouds are gathering with threat of a storm. They spread across the sky. When the they are full, they will pour out the rain upon the earth. Many of us like these kinds of storms.

Rejoice!

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Matthew 28:6 This morning I read three Gospel accounts of the resurrection of Jesus. The empty tomb meant that Jesus had risen as He had said He would. We can always trust in His Word and …

How to Claim A Promise From God

2 Peter 3:8-13 This reading brings to mind Abraham.  God had promised him that he would have a son and the numbers of stars would be how large his generation would be.  Abraham could claim this promise.  This promise of a son met Abraham’s nee.  He would have an heir.  It was in submission to …

Called

Ah, Lord GOD!  Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth - Jeremiah 1:6 When God called me to be a pastor, I was scared.  I felt that at 26, I was too young to be lead the congregation of a megachurch here in Birmingham, Alabama but while I was praying about it, the …
