Dad I Really Need You

Psalm 78:1-11 WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM HISTORY? Answer: A lot! Since this is Father’s Day, I ask the question.... WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR DADDY? Did he show you how to throw a good fastball,  a football? Did he show you how you kick a soccer ball or play hockey? Did he show you how to make something out of wood? Did he show you how to treat a lady, a woman or future children? Or d id he show or teach you about the love of God and His redemptive plan for lost sinners? Because this is where it stops for me personally!..... Not everyone had that privilege or family life, I grew up in a fairly moralistic household because of my father’s employment as a Police Officer for 25 years. We had standards and rules to follow in the home and outside the home! My Dad showed me many things growingf up. For example.....How to cut the grass, p lant a good garden, m ake things out of wood, h ow to start and finish a good BBQ, d rive a car safely and the one that stands out the most is when he u

Are You A Fool?

Psalm 53:1-11 ARE YOU A FOOL? Before you can answer that question we need to define what it mean to be a fool? Because to be called one doesn't seem to be a compliment or an encouraging word! The definition of a “fool” is simply someone who is S. T.U. P. I .D The word “fool” is used to describe a senseless act or someone who is wicked. The word “fool” is used 569 times throughout the Old and the New Testament. The book of Proverbs where “fool” is used denotes a person who is morally and spiritually deficient (which means lacking). MANY TIMES JESUS, HIMSELF CONTRASTED THE WISE AND THE FOOLISH PERSON! In Matt 7:24-27 Jesus said  "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man

Our Big Teddy Bear In The Sky

A God Too Small? by Charles R. Swindoll Read Exodus 19:1--15 So deep, so profound must be this respect for God's holy presence that no one was even to touch the mountain. The people were to wait upon God to speak to Moses and hear the Lord's words through the Lord's servant. What a needed reminder! This story makes it clear that we live in a day of pitifully shallow concepts of God. Some of today's contemporary Christian music leaves the impression that God is our buddy---a great pal to have in a pinch. A film star once said of God, "He's my great Big Daddy upstairs." One pop song asks, "What if God were just a slob like us?" That is not the biblical view of God. That is a human being's feeble attempt to make God relevant. The Puritans, that rigorous people of old, possessed a solidly biblical concept of God. Do you know why it is so crucial for us to recover such a respectful understanding? Because a shallow view of God leads to a shallow
