BE STILL PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 16 2018 00:00

Joy, true joy, can be so very elusive at times.  Momentary happiness, immediate gratification, the proverbial band-aids of life, seem to be the elixir of the masses.  “Just help me get through this moment!” is the mantra for many today.

But, it’s not just that many are looking for distractions – so that the “inevitables” of life can be ignored for as long as possible.  No, it’s that all too often life in our culture becomes categorized as a series of entertainment events, rather than a fluid motion of devotion.  The thought that a moment only carries significance if it manages to trip the ole adrenaline pump on high and deliver some mad rush (like shopping on Christmas Eve!) has become the norm for many.

May I suggest another way?

Joy, deep, abiding joy, can be discovered within a passionate search for God’s divine precepts, His powerful presence, and His life-path for you to follow.  The psalmist teaches:

“Be still, and know that I am God.  I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 ESV

This means to . . . stop, listen, learn God’s way, His truth and His rich life which deliver great Joy!  Oh my . . . but Jesus says, “few there will be that find it.”  This God-search, this joy-safari, can only be accomplished by “being still”!

Perhaps you can begin your search today!

OUR ONLY HOPE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 02 2018 00:00

Our hope is built on nothing less than checks and cash and all the rest... wait that’s not right, is it?

Our hope is built on the solid frame of notoriety and an honored name... hmmm, that sounds a bit off!

Our hope is known by the fun we have and every thing that makes us laugh?

No, that’s not it!!!  I’m sorry, the facts keep getting in the way of retrieving these old words written by Edward Mote.

Let me try again...

“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”

Eureka!  You have to kinda ignore the current of our culture in order to capture these words!

Today, on this first Sunday of Advent, we focus on Christ who is

our Holy Hope

our Divine Hope

and actually our ONLY Hope!

But I wonder, are we truly aware?

Or are we so thoroughly enamored with this world’s enticements and entertainment that we can’t quite recall where our hope must be placed and our faith fixed?

I hope you know!

MADE TO POSSESS THE UNPOSSESSABLE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 09 2018 00:00

I don’t believe that God’s propensity to give and love can be questioned.  When we look at the enormity, the intricacy, the diversity, and even the esthetic beauty of God’s wonderful creation, we cannot help but become awed and overwhelmed. 

But it’s the fact that, as the crown of His creation, all that has been made was made for man... for you.

We are truly, His focus!

We are the aim of His pinpointed love in the person of Jesus Christ!

God loved and loves so immensely that He could not allow the focus of His passion to wallow in a sin-filled, hopeless, state.  Therefore, He made possible a path – that leads directly to Him!  It is only because the God, who is Love, so thoroughly loved that He became His own creation, laying the blood-path that leads to life –  personally!

Please know, that without this selfless sacrifice of our Creator we would be the most pitiful of beings... being made to possess the unpossessable.  But our God opened a divine door through the incarnation and bids us:

“Come in and know Me better...!”

How will you – personally – respond to this type of love?

BE THANKFUL PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, November 25 2018 00:00

There’s nothing more beautiful than a heart filled with gratitude!

To be truly thankful is to be divinely observant, allowing for vision that’s Glory-filled, Spirit-channeled, and unique.  Encountering this perspective is rare – like an amazing color that only emerges just when the light is perfectly filtered.

So . . . search for it, cultivate it, then use it for God’s glory!

Gratitude in its purest form is a muscle, and therefore, it is possible to be developed.  This inner muscle – in maturity – delivers wonderful side effects . . . which can be completely life-changing. 
An example of that would be the unique vision already mentioned – seeing the mundane as something new and marvelous.

With gratitude, others will begin to gravitate toward you, being open to your message, rather than pushing you away.  With this new condition, it will allow you to invest in the well-being and joy of others.  Experiencing it rather than merely observing.

Gratitude creates beauty wherever practiced and genuinely performed.

“You are my God, and I will give thanks to You; You are my God; I will extol You.  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!”  Psalm 118:28–29 (ESV)

Be thankful,
– Dale
