Impart some Love!

For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established — that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Rom 1:11-12

Impart – to give, convey, or grant from or as if from a store; to communicate the knowledge of. Continue reading

Transformation through God’s word!

I found out that a visitor to our church really enjoyed hearing God’s word. He later told a family member that it gave him a renewed strength to go back home and get back into church with his family. Continue reading

I am a child!

Last week’s church camp was a great week. I was privileged to have Jared as the other represented church in my cabin with me. Jared is also my neighbor right across the road and this was his first time to ever go to church camp. Continue reading


Good morning from Daniel Springs church camp. 
Last night the camp pastor spoke on priorities. His illustration is well know but I’ve never seen it in person. 
He had a huge jar filled with small pebbles. It represented all the things in your life that you like but are really unnecessary. Things like sports, Facebook, Instagram, fishing, and I’ll even add geocaching. 

Like I said, things you enjoy but can live without.  
He brought out some big rocks that represented really important things like God, family, church, and relationships. 
When he put the rocks in the top of the jar they wouldn’t fit. The non-necessary things were in the way. 
He brought out another empty jar. He placed the important things in first – God, family, church, and relationships. 

Then he poured the pebbles in. The pebbles filled in the nooks and crannies around the rocks. 

It all fit in the jar and he placed the lid on it. 
Life is like that. 

God doesn’t want to take sports, Facebook, Instagram, fishing, or geocaching away from you. 

But He wants to be first!
It is written, 

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”‭‭ Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭

If your life is so busy that you don’t have time for God, then your life is busier than God ever intended. 
Get the priorities right and your life will be full of the right things. 

Life Changing Events

Good morning from Daniel Springs church camp. 
Last night the camp pastor spoke on time. As I listened I began to think about the stories my grandparents use to talk about. 

Most of us will remember life changing events – for them it was The Great Depression. 
My grandmother would not toss out a small bowl of purple-hull peas. Things were so bad and food was scarce. 
I heard about the scarcity of jobs and working all day for 50 cents. 
It was there life changing event. 
In my lifetime there have been many things that have changed the way I live and think. 

Man landed on the moon in the late 1960’s. Abortion was made legal in the early 1970’s and same-sex marriage in 2015. 

September 11, 2001 changed all of us and our view of Islam. 
Now I can reminisce about where I lived and went to school. I could talk about friends and places. But above all the dates and events that have transpired in my lifetime, January 15, 1975 sticks out above all. 

That was the day I was born-again by accepting Jesus as my Savior. 
It’s the event I should talk about the most. 

It’s the event I should talk about most with my grandchildren. 

It is the life changing event that I need to tell everyone about. 

It’s the event that my mind should think on the most. 

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians‬ ‭3:2‬ 

Victory over the big sins – Victory over the smallest sins

The Mosaic Law gives a clear definition of sin. Some of those are fairly easy to distinguish like murder, adultery, lying, stealing, coveting, and dishonoring your parents – all mentioned in the Ten Commandments. Plus there are the first four concerning your relationship with God. Continue reading

The Sin Difference

Not all sin was treated the same under the Mosaic Law. Granted sin is sin and all sin is ultimately punishable by death but under the Law not all sin was given a death penalty. Continue reading
