For too long, Christian people have made the decision to disengage from political discourse in stark contrast to everything the Bible teaches us about stewardship of what God has given us.  In Luke 19, we’re told, “occupy till I come.” According to the Merriam-Webster's definition, occupy means to engage our attention and energy, to take or hold possession, to fill or perform the functions of something.  Whether it's taking ownership and responsibility of our families or taking responsibility for the nation God gave us, Christians should be occupying. The Bible teaches Christian people to be good stewards over our families, finances, etc. but for some reason when it comes to politics, too many believers think we need to back off and let the chips fal...

Note:   God has given us a chance in America to get busy about

the greatest business, work in the world.

Note:   Three things in view here that we need to learn from, and

relate to: (1) the brokenness of the sower. (2) the burden the sower, and (3) the blessing of the sower


     A.        brokenness is evident in the way this sower is weeping

                 Note:   v. 6a “He that goeth forth and weepeth …  “

                1.         these tears aren’t superficial in nature

                2.         these tears...

In reading about the life of Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), missionary to India, I came across her perspective on being photographed. It is interesting, to say the least, perhaps convicting. Once while being photographed with a church group, she expressed her thoughts succinctly.

“I wish it were possible to keep from this mode of embalmment, but one can’t without hurting kind feelings and making a fuss.”

Amy always resisted being photographed. She didn't want to be photographically embalmed as she was, for she had the hope of someday being clothed upon with a glorious body like unto Christ's glorious body.

I wonder how this attitude would fare under the selfie generation of today? Many appear to be lovers of their own selves, photographically embalming the...

The words, “think” and “thank” come from the same root word. 

There’s a tremendous connection between these two concepts – thankfulness and thoughtfulness.

Spurgeon was right: “We are in a wrong state of mind if we are not in a thankful state of mind.” And almost no one in the world has more reason to be in a thankful state of mind than those who live in the United States of America. Think about it: With all of the negatively there is around us, we Americans can rejoice in the fact that our nation was founded within the context of belief in Almighty God. We can be thankful for the individual freedom we enjoy; freedom that is unprecedented in the history of nations. And, we can be thankful that the freedom we still have is freedom enough to enable us to...

As a young man, I once overheard an older and very much-used man of God make a confession, by way of counsel, to a young preacher. He said, “I have always had a great sense of humor and a knack for story telling and making people laugh. When I was very young, I incorporated too much of this into my preaching. I will never forget the night that the Lord convicted me that I had been, on too many occasions, little more than the devil’s clown when I was in the pulpit."

There are not a few preachers today, both young and old, who apparently have yet to learn what my old friend had learned. Preaching the Word requires the preaching of the Word of God, not telling funny stories. John Henry Jowett, in his book, The Preacher, His Life and Work wrote, “We never...
