A Prayer for The Spread of The Gospel

by Pastor Timothy

Almighty God, we live in a spiritual wasteland. You are ignored, blasphemed and minimized. Your Word is perverted or rejected or forgotten. Christ is not held in high esteem. Unbelief is commonplace. False prophets are many. Men do that which is right in their own eyes. The corrupting effects of sin are rampant. We pray […]

God Rules

by Pastor Timothy

Currently at Collierville PBC, I am preaching through the book of Jonah. It has been a rich study for me, and I hope the congregation has been blessed as well. In such a short book (4 chapters), many rich, prominent theological themes are seen. Today, I will look out at how Jonah highlights the Sovereignty […]

He Hears Me!

by Pastor Timothy

“I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.” Psalm 116:1 There are an abundance of things to stir up our love for God. Forgiveness of sin, redemption from ruin, and the prospect of eternal life would be a few at the top of the list. But, how precious is the […]

Open Thy Mouth Wide!

by Pastor Timothy

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:10 The image of a baby bird craning its’ beak wide open in request and expectancy for it to be filled with food from an attentive parent is a fitting […]

Travel Diaries

“These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron.

His Eyes Behold the Nations

by Pastor Timothy

“He ruleth by His power forever; His eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.” Psalm 66:7 God’s word informs our faith. How we need God’s perspective! If we were to only interpret the events of life from what we physically observe, we could easily lose hope. Through the Scriptures, on the […]

Better Than Great Treasure

by Pastor Timothy

“Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.” Proverbs 15:16,17 Oh, how we need God’s perspective on things! How easily we place such value on the wealth we can accumulate or the […]

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 […]
