What’s Your Story?

I have had the privilege over the years of knowing and working with some really amazing young people.  It has been my experience that the adults in churches could learn a few things from Godly young people.  When a teenager gets on fire for the Lord and begins to study their Bible their zeal is […]

Tribute To Vernon Jones

On Monday night late I received a call letting me know that one of our dear church members and friends had passed away just a few minutes before.  I threw on my clothes and rushed over to Vernon and JoJo’s house.  Holding back tears as I came into the house I did all I could […]

Through the Bible in 30 Days

I went to the “All the King’s Men” retreat at Pine Springs Baptist Camp this past weekend.  We were challenged there to read the word of God more.  The speaker, Cory Page, said that he was challenged to read his Bible through in 30 days and at first did not believe that it could be […]

The more the dirt road is traveled the deeper the ruts will be. If you have done […]

Ready To Give An Answer

I Peter 3:14 reads, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” First of all what is the reason of the hope that is in you. That reason […]

It Is Time To Get Our Hands Dirty

It has struck me lately that we as Christian people are all too often afraid to get our hands dirty. What I mean by that is that when we interact with people, we are more than willing to tell them that we are praying for them, we are more than willing to invite them to […]

Back From Vacation

I appreciate very much the three weeks of vacation that Pleasant Hill gives me every year. I took one of those weeks this past week and did some good resting up. I attended services with Mt. Sylvia Missionary Baptist Church in Mt. Pleasant, TX where my father is the pastor. That church is doing some […]
