Go God go

Stand still and know that He is God and see the salvation of Lord. Whatever battle of this life you are facing now, know it belongs to the Shepherd of our souls.

They will know us by our love

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Be generous

When we were planting a new church in Redfield, I would continually share the vision to our church and pray for God to supply the finances necessary to do so. One family stopped me early on and said, “God told us to give $10,000.” Then another did the same. Another lady showed up with a $10,000 check.

New Community youth pastor

The Rev. Patrick Lockett, pastor and apostle at New Community Baptist Church, has named the Rev. Tony Williams, the new youth pastor. He will work alongside his family, wife, Linda Williams, and children, Zhoriah Williams, Timothy Williams and Daijah Williams. (Special to The Commercial)

Stagger not at the promises

(As it is written, “I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Romans 4:17-21 KJV)

It’s the small things

Have you ever found yourself so busy or consumed by stuff you didn’t find much joy in the whole day? In this topsy turvy world we can rush right past the blessings and joy right in front of us overtaken by endless checklists and constant distractions.

All hands on

Jesus was and still is very hands on working with people on this journey called life. (Hebrews 4:14-16). All throughout the Bible we can see this displayed because of the great love that God has for us.
