Watching Over Us

Last week I shared a story with you that I finish our new members class with, but just moments before that, I like to share a little bit about a verse that is of great benefit to anyone who is a disciple of Jesus Christ, on his walk with Him. As we walk by faith in Him, forsaking all else to follow Him, how can we best make it from first being fill…

God's Sovereignty

This is a story that I share with all the new members to be before we close the books on the class and enter the arena of an interview with an Elder. A woman writes," When she was born, a treatable disease was misdiagnosed, and she was paralyzed. By age 14 she had had 21 surgeries and was cruelly treated by other children calling her 'crippled'. Sh…

Joy in the Lord

Joy is defined as, "the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation." It is listed second only to love in the fruits of the Spirit in Gal.5:22. In regards to the birth of the Christ child and the resurrection of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the word joy is used many time…

Baptism

With a Baptism to take place this upcoming Sunday, I thought we could spend a little time on it today. It is one of two ordinances in the church age today that Jesus calls us to carry out. One is the Lord's supper, communion, as often as you do this you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. This is done over and over, monthly at GCC. The other …

Letting the Word Dwell Richly

Colossians 3:16 The apostle exhorts us to, "Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you." Pastor Groves mentions this to the flock nearly every week of the year. Here is a great illustration of it. A beautiful and touching story is told of a young French girl who had been born blind. After she learned to read by touch, a friend gave her a Brai…

The Winds and the Waves

Read Psalm 107:23-32 There is hardly a more relaxing place to enjoy than being out on a beautifully God created body of water. The splendor, color, and life that abounds in these beautiful bodies of water are a sight to behold. Whether a vacationer or employee on these great waters, they are not always calm. As in Psalm 107, a stormy gale can caus…

Out of the Darkness

Read Psalm 107:10-16 The problem or predicament is one being in a prison, a place of darkness, like a tomb or cave, damp, filthy, cold, not fit for man nor beast. The way of the transgressor is hard indeed. The ready eminence of execution as death brings horror to the soul and hangs in the air. Helplessness, hopelessness, bound in misery as well a…

Wandering into Wondering

Wandering into Wondering Read Psalm 107:4-9 Looking at our text, first, the problem or predicament: we see a lost caravan, in an endless sea of sand, where tracks seem to disappear as soon as they are made. One who wanders here in a dry wasteland sees no end in sight. It can indeed be a picture of one who does not know God. He knows not which dir…

What the Lord Is Like

Hope this short meditation finds you "fixing your eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)  Psalm 107:1-2 says, "Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlastin…

Looking Ahead

With many graduating, maybe you are one of these looking into an unknown future, or maybe you are up in age a little, what are you looking toward, forward to, or hoping the unknown future may hold? These are all good questions; only One knows the future (Isa. 46:9-11), how you will make it! Any ideas, any strategies, any thoughts? I would like to s…
