Every year after I attend the SBC Annual Meeting I bring a message reporting what we are doing in the Southern Baptist Convention, based on the inspiration of the messages I heard, and the reports about our primary ministries.
Here is my message, it’s sort of long, but maybe NOT as controversial as you might think.
Matthew 28:18-20; Revelation 7:9
From Commission to Culmination Continue reading
God Created All Things I know God loves the beauty of his creation. He loves a sunrise and sunset. He loves the way his stars are arranged. I’m sure he loves hearing the song of a whale singing in the ocean, a dolphin rising and falling on the surface of the waves. Oh, I’m sure … Continue reading
I look back, yesterday gave us hope
I look forward, tomorrow promises will be fulfilled

Words seem to define us – winner, loser, big, small, accepted, rejected, sinner, saint, but because Jesus is the First Word and He is the FINAL Word, Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End; it doesn’t matter what your current word is, it doesn’t have to define you if you surrender to Jesus.

If you’re a preacher you will hopefully enjoy the reminders. 1) Should be Clearly and Purely Explaining the Text – “it is impossible to edify them unless you are clear” 2) Give the Entire sense … Continue reading
Just a short word – Paul says in Philippians 4:16-17(CSB) “…you sent gifts for my need several times. 17 Not that I seek the gift But I seek the profit that is increasing to your account” Seems like I remember someone saying that we should not lay up treasures on earth, but lay up treasures in our … Continue reading
