With all that’s happening in our nation (and the world) nowadays, it would be easy for a Christian to lose his focus – to take his mind off his main goal of going to heaven when this life is over. We should be like Paul who wrote in Philippians 3:14, “I press toward the goal…

Hurricanes, statue removals, immigration, gas shortages, hydrogen bombs-there’s always plenty to occupy our minds. It’s enough to drive a person out of his mind, if he’s not careful. But, as Christians, we have a different mindset. Paul reminds us, “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the…

The Texas floods-that’s the story that has dominated the news this week. Most of us cannot imagine the horrific experiences our neighbors to the south have been through. When I get up each morning and put my feet on the floor, I want to say, Thank you, Lord, for dry carpet! and, I have been…

To me it is remarkable that our universe operates with such precision that people of science and astronomy can pinpoint the very hour and minute this is expected to…

Rick Williams did a super¬† job leading more than five hundred young people in some very meaningful songs, and Steve Bailey did his usual good job in presenting a message, “Our God Is An…

When you read this you’re going to say, “Enough already about that Golden Agers’ Rally” and I promise that after this “blog” I’ll not mention it again until next year. But, I do want to say “thank you” to all who had a part in its success. I heard several say that this was our…

We’ll eat, visit, hear a brief, inspiring message from Steve Bailey, and enjoy the singing of His Harmony quartet. I’m talking about our annual Ellis County Golden Agers’ Rally Thursday evening, July 27th, at 6:00. There will be a touch of patriotism, so red, white and blue attire will be appropriate, but not required. In…

COMMON SENSE IS NOT SO COMMON Proverbs 2:1-4 (ESV) “My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and…

February 17th was the last night my sweet Billie spent at our house. She fell on the 18th, broke her hip, and has been in a hospital or nursing home since. Though she is receiving the best of care, she still is walking very little. It breaks my heart when she asks every day or…

The Bible says about Dorcas in Acts 9:36, “This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did.” Peter said about Jesus in Acts 10:38, “Who went about doing good.” Paul wrote in Titus 3:1, “Remind them…to be ready unto every good work,” Earlier in Titus 2:7 Paul admonished Titus to “show…
