Do I Have A Heart For Worship

Hebrews 3:7-19 What is required for worship? What is a heart of worship? What is the heart of worship? Well, I suppose that doctrinal dissertations have been and will be written about these subjects. Of course, songs have and will be, also. Tim Hughes’ “Here I Am to Worship” is one: So here I am […]

Focus

by

Hebrews 3:1-6 As we prepare for this Memorial Day weekend let us remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms in this nation. Men and women gave their lives so that we could live ours as free people. It is so easy to focus on the “beginning of summer” rather than what the holiday is really […]

Delayed Gratification

by

Hebrews 2:5-18 Sometimes life seems more than we can cope with. Sickness, death, the political situation, finances, and a thousand other things can all overwhelm us at times. Life just is not fair.

To The Work!

by

Exodus 35-40  I still remember the awe and trepidation of my first major model change at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington. I was a green electrical foreman of the ripe old age of 21. I remember walking into the plant after the first week. It was gutted. All the steel was in piles […]

In Him Was Life!

We, humans, remember great events from history. If you are a Texan you might remember March 2, Texas Declaration of Independence, or March 6, the fall of the Alamo.
