Worshiping God in Kenya!

Those who know me know that I don’t see a lot of sunrises in life…I’m more of  a sunset kind of guy—in fact I often jokingly quote Psalm 127:2 as my life verse, “It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he […]

The Glory of being in Christ!

Scripture never ceases to amaze me.  I don’t know how many times I’ve read the Bible through, but over and over again passages just seem to jump off of the page at me regardless of how many times I’ve read them.  Yesterday I had just this kind of experience as I was reading a chapter […]

Crash Helmets, Life Preservers, and the Hurricane Who Is Our God!

AW Tozer said, “What comes to mind when we thing about God is the most important thing about us.”  In one of his books he said, “Worship, I say, rises or falls with our concept of God; that is why I do not believe in these half-converted cowboys who call God “the Man Upstairs.”  I […]

Thoughts on Recruiting, the Super Bowl, and Evening Worship

Auburn High School has produced another 5 Star linebacker and tomorrow he will announce his intentions to either play for Auburn or Alabama.  I do not know one thing about Rashaan Evans, but I read an article today about his grandfather’s 80th birthday party.  Evans walked into the party and there on his left he […]

“Remember, Repent, and Re-do!”

FBC Pell City has been privileged to partner with CrossPoint who hosts a Men’s Weekend every year.  It is always an incredible time when we gather with several hundred men to worship our Savior and to feast on the Word of God.  In the past we’ve been fed by R Kent Hughes, Steve Farrar, Robert […]

My Favorite Psalm

Today, the 8th, is always one of my favorite days.  I love it because I tend to read through the Psalms based on the day of the month and the 8th Psalm is one of my favorite.  Read it, pray it, meditate upon it, and marvel at the God it describes! “O Lord, our Lord, […]

A Prayer for Today!

As the day begins I want to share a part of a prayer from the Valley of Vision: “May I never dally with the world and its allurements, but walk by Thy side, listen to Thy voice, be clothed with Thy graces, and adorned with Thy righteousness.” (page 33) I might add as a confession […]

In Wrath Remember Mercy!

Tonight I will continue my survey of the OT and our journey takes us to the OT book of Habakkuk.  Habakkuk is a wonderful example of the relationship one can have with God.  It starts with the prophet complaining to God that He doesn’t seem to care about the wickedness and violence going on around […]

God is Everywhere Conspicuous!

I found myself in my office early this morning.  I am not by nature a morning person…in fact I might be as far from a morning person as anyone you’ve ever met.  When it comes to early mornings I am just to the left of a vampire, but I have a Tuesday morning reading group […]

Christ in the Burning Bush!

I am always enthralled by Moses’ Burning Bush experience with God.  In fact I am enthralled by every theophany we find in the Word of God.  A theophany is a visible manifestation of God.  We see it when God appears to Abraham as a smoking firepot, we see it again with the two angels before […]
