Doin’ That Sing You Do (Nehemiah 6:15-7:73)

Step It Up And Dance (Psalm 37:21-31)

Everything around us is in the full bloom of spring. Many of us know that right away when we wake up every morning with asthma and itchy eyes. But it is lovely to see the many blossoms on trees around town. For a farmer, the bloom of spring is more than just pretty flowers to look at. As farmers wat

No Go Ono (Nehemiah 6:1-14)

If I asked you, I’m pretty sure you could name several walls that have been prominent in history:The Great Wall of China. Hadrians Wall in England. The Berlin Wall. The Walls of Troy.

A Clockwatcher God (Psalm 37:10-20)

In the wake of World War 2, our culture has become infatuated with the idea of predicting the end of the world, or at least humanity. Whether it was the Population Bomb which said disaster was coming in the 80’s or climate alarmists who said we only had a few years to save the polar ice caps, there’

Check Before You Burn (Psalm 37:1-9)

Psalm 37 is where we’ll be this evening. When you think of wise people in the Bible, who comes to mind? If you’re like me, Solomon comes first. Then maybe Daniel, the wise men from the east who followed the star. Maybe Joseph. I don’t usually put David on that list. It’s easier to think of him as a

Helpers & The Nehemiah Brass (Nehemiah 4:1-23)

It makes it worse that they don’t know they are surrounded.Butch and Sundance get in a gunfight with the local Bolivian police. Wounded, they take cover in a building. As they banter about next going to Australia, and learning to swim, the army arrives, and hundreds of soldiers surround the area.

O Brother, Near Art Thou (Revelation 1:1-3)

I love Easter eggs. Not the bunny kind; those are for the kiddos. Unless they have money in them. Not the Cadbury kind; although those are the best.I mean the big screen kind. They are messages, or characters, or images, hidden in the background of movies. They are called Easter eggs because you

Mighty Transformin’ Power Disciples (Philippians 3:10)

People always want more power:Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor would ask his Tool Time studio audience, “Men, if we want a job done quick, and we want it done right, what do we need?” They’d answer loudly in unison, “More power!” He’d then use a tool so powerful it destroyed the project, or blew-up in hi

Daniel 12:1-13 – End Of The Lines

I saw an interesting article yesterday. Prominent business leaders were told to “pretend you can only ask your candidates a single interview question…to base your entire hiring decision on.” Barbara Corcoran, the Shark-Tank-famous real estate mogul said, “Tell me about your family. If their family c

The Worser Of Two Evils (Daniel 11:29-45)

If you were a fan of the innovative television show 24, you got used to a pattern that seemed to emerge, at least to my recollection. The season would start, you’d get introduced to the bad guy. You’d get to know him a little, see the bad guy stuff he did. Then, at about the 12 hour mark, he’d get k

Gate Expectations (Nehemiah 2:9-20)

You might remember Florida senator Marco Rubio joking about the small size of Donald Trump’s hands at a campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia. He later offered a public apology.

The Gate Awakening (Nehemiah 1:1-11)
