You’re never too old, and it is never too late for God to use you. Moses was eighty years old when he got his assignment, and Caleb was 85 when God gave him his mountain. If anybody could have retired comfortably, it would have been Abraham. But God came knocking. In Genesis 12 we find God telling him to ...

When God left heaven for me
To die on an old rugged tree
He endured humiliation and shame
He was whispering my name
As He walked up Mount Calvary
He was saying I love you
I love you this much
You’re the reason I wrapped myself in flesh
You’re the reason I took on the form of a man
He was saying I love you
And You’re the reason I ...

Could you imagine a church service where the musicians put down their instruments, and the singers became silent. The worship of the congregation became still as rejoicing seemed to pause. Preachers fell to their knees. The glory of the Lord filled the temple.
The thick cloud that filled the building. The church watched speechless as King Solomon knelt before the ...

Airlines have become stricter for overweight bags. They now charge you extra for any bag weighing over 50 pounds. It seems as though they are trying to get us to travel light. Travel light or pay the fine.
The writer of Hebrews says that we need to lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us. Just ...

After God delivered the the children of Israel, they spent 40 years in the wilderness because of the hardness of their hearts.
If only they had been obedient to God, they could have made the journey much sooner.
Before they went into the promise land, Moses reminded them of the things that God had done for them so that they ...

This past weekend, Sis. Crystal and I spent a couple of days with other ministers and their wives. It was the annual Ministers and Spouses retreat. It was a tremendous time of fellowship and lots of fun. However, traveling there was another story.
What should have been a three and one-half hour trip became a five hour trip. ...

There are many things at the heart of God, but one of those things is worship. Jesus said, that he had come to seek and save the lost, but he also said, that God seeks worshipers that will worship him in Spirit and Truth. It not only pleases God, but it is one of God’s battle strategies. ...

We don’t think about them, but we are surrounded by them. If we did not have them, our lives would be more difficult. What am I talking about. I know your expecting some dramatic answer. Yet, my answer is simple, “bridges”.
Their job is simple, but every day they carry us across gaps. Without the Ritchie ...

In prayer the other day, I was praying, and I was praying over so many things. I was coming to the end of my time in prayer, and before I could say “Amen”, another prayer came out of my spirit.
I found myself praying, “Lord, I want to be found faithful”.
When my life is over, I don’t want any hidden ...

I will admit that when people are discussing current events, often, I have to ask for more details. It’s simply because I don’t know. That’s what happens when you don’t have cable, read a newspaper, and only check Fox News every now and then. The thing is, most all of the news is negative.
Don’t get me wrong, I ...
