“Contending With Horses?”

Some messages/sermons leave a huge impact. I’ve been recalling at least the essence of a Berean Children’s Camp (near Sudbury) message preached in the 1970’s. The text was Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?” The preacher of the day […]

Post Election Musings….

After yesterday’s municipal elections, I am posting I Timothy 2:1-7. Enough said! 2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, […]

God Resists The Proud

Leadership is a dangerous responsibility – with the challenge of authority without authoritarianism, leadership without ‘lording it over,’ power without pride, shepherding with the temptation of only taking care of ourselves (Ezekiel 34:2). The list continues……. No leader has mastered leading, save Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, the Great Shepherd, the Chief Shepherd. (Remember shepherd […]

The Catechism Got It Right!

The catechism got it right!   “The chief end of man is glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.”   So, how shall we then live?  How may the Triune God be glorified through my life?  Today’s hymn answers that question…. Oh, may my life be to Thy praise, O Father, In all I do may Thou […]
