A heavenly mulligan

We are approaching Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday. It is a week when we focus and meditate on the sacrifices that Jesus made for us. We read the final words and teachings that He shared to the people and the disciples during that week. We...

 

A call to courage

I have been preaching a series from the book of Haggai. I thought that I would share some of my thoughts from the message I shared this past Sunday. Especially since no one could hear what I had to say. I am going to talk about Haggai 2:4-5....

 

Thanksgiving by Numbers

In the book of Numbers, we have a passage that many are familiar with but since it is in one of the least read books of the Bible we do not read it like we should. “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be...

 

Have a loving Christmas!

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Cor. 13:13). This is the last verse of what is called “The Love Chapter.” Love is what we are also thinking about this Advent. It is usually thought...

1 John 4:17-19 has some interesting words to read that are appropriate for where we are as a community, state and nation. Here is what John says (just in case you do not have a Bible handy), “In this, love is perfected with us so that we may have...

Who is your Lord?

We have just finished celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. We had services all week leading up to Easter. It was a great time for the community of churches to get together and worship. It was exciting for Cedar Grove and I to be a part of this....

 

Serving God and Country

I have the privilege to write this devotional on the week before Veteran’s Day. As I have become older I have come to appreciate and understand the sacrifice that many in my family have made. The ones that I know about all made it back from wars....

 

A 50-year example

This last Sunday, Sept. 23, my family and I attended my mother and father’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration at their church in Enid. As I watched them together and as I think about it now, I realize what an example they were to my brother and...
