Do You See God?

Posted by on Jan 10, 2013 in Blog

I was visiting my Mom at the nursing home yesterday and looked out the window to behold a pair of turtle doves on the fence carefully grooming one another, in what appeared to be “bird affection”, cuddling close together. As I beheld this wonder of nature, a scripture came to mind. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall SEE GOD…” Matt. 5:8

Stumbling Blocks

Posted by on Sep 10, 2012 in Blog

“Make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way. As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean. If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.” Romans 14:13-15 Watch what we see, where we go, and what we say so we do not become a “Stumbling Block.” Let’s love each other.

-Pastor Rick Van Hoose

God’s Word Lasts

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Blog

The greatest thing about God’s word is that it’s eternal. I don’t want that to sound like a cliche’ but here’s what I mean by that statement. Each generation has fads that come and go. There are cultural changes that will rise and fall with each generation. But because God’s Word is absolute, it never changes. It’s always relevant to each generation. Isn’t that exciting? The Word will last forever, but it’s the same today as it was 2000 years ago. Cling to it, live by it’s precepts, hide it in your heart, and it will enrich your life. Mans opinions will come and go, but the word of the Lord will last forever!

God Has The Answer

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Blog

During our younger days in school when the teacher would ask the class to take out a fresh piece of paper and a sharpened pencil, we knew what was coming. The dreaded “Pop-Quiz!” God too will sometimes challenge each of us with a test as we walk with Him, but always remember, the difference is that in these tests, HE ALREADY HAS THE ANSWER! No matter what it is we face, He’s always there, with a solution, and if we’ll trust Him, we’ll pass the test with flying colors. Take Him at His word…He has the answer for you!

New Every Morning

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Blog

If you’re like most of us, at least one time along the way in your walk with the Lord you may have struggled with the question, “How can I possibly come to God with that same sin. He must be tired of hearing me ask his forgiveness!” Have you ever felt that way? I know I have! We have such a limited perception of the grace of God. I’m not sure that we’ll ever fully understand his mercy. How can He forgive so easily? Sorry to disappoint you, but I just don’t have a fancy theological answer for you…but He does. His grace is never exhausted towards his children, it’s new every morning. Just as the sun will break the darkness with the dawn of new light, God’s mercy is everlasting  and His truth will endure to ALL generations. That’s just one of the things our God is! Merciful and Gracious. Aren’t you grateful for that?

Greater Love Has No Man

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Blog

There’s an old law on the books that too many times gets ignored, even by believers. It was God’s idea, and it would do us all good to revisit the subject again. It’s referred to in scripture as the “Law Of Love.” What a different world this would be if we’d just be governed by this rare virtue. It was in the heart of our Father at the dawn of creation, and manifested by the Son when He gave His life for our sins. All sin would cease if we would practice it in our every day lives. There would never be another crime if we would obey it’s premise. Jesus demonstrated love in it’s purest form when he forgave us! So should we love one another!
