In reading the devotionals found in Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for his Highest, I seek to make them very personal.  For today’s devotion Chambers writes about 2 Timothy 4:2, “Preach the Word” and entitles the devotion, “Being an Example of His Message.”  God calls us all to witness to His message but some He has.. continue reading »»

In days where we see very little in our world and nation to be thankful for it is just the time to go to God and give Him thanks for who He is, His sovereign hand in this world and His faithfulness to His children.

As a pastor there are times you get very sentimental about what you do. What the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12, 19-20 helps describe how I feel about you, the people who make up North Anderson Baptist Church. I realize I am not your father, many of you are older than I, but.. continue reading »»
