Devising Good

by Pastor Timothy

“Do they not err that devise evil? But mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.” Proverbs 14:22 The sinful heart really is corrupt. As this verse states, sinners come up with ways to do evil. Since the fallen human heart, mind and will is not dedicated to delighting in God, it delights […]

Christ and Contentment

by Pastor Timothy

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Philippians 4:11 Here is the sentiment of a man who knows Christ and has walked with Him. Paul did not write these words as he wrote from a beach home in the Carribean while sipping iced tea. He was writing this letter […]

Remember the Loaves!

by Pastor Timothy

“For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.”  Mark 6:52 The scene was a storm on the Sea of Galilee. In a ship, the disciples were right in the middle of it, and Jesus was not there with them. He came to them walking on the water, and calmed […]

by Pastor Timothy

“Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.” Isaiah 52:13 One of the meanings of the word translated ‘prudently’ is successful, prosperous. Jesus Christ, the “servant of Jehovah” referenced in this passage, was an absolute success in His mission on earth. His assignment was living an absolutely […]
