“And they replied, ‘We both had dreams last night, but no one can tell us what they mean.’  ‘Interpreting dreams is God’s business,’ Joseph replied.  ‘Go ahead and tell me your dreams.’”   Genesis 40:8 (NLT)

This Spirit-led act of mercy started a chain of events that resulted in Joseph being lifted up to a position greater than all in Egypt – save Pharaoh.  As he interpreted the cupbearer’s dream, he would do the same for the great Pharaoh.

“Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they quickly brought him out of the pit.  And when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Pharaoh.”  Genesis 41:14 (ESV)

Just a reminder that no obstacle is to great for our God – nor do they take Him by surprise.  On the contrary, He uses them for His glory!  Look at Joseph . . . One day he’s in the pit the next the palace.

One day we may feel broken but the next day God brings victory.

One day we’re hopelessly lost – the next we’re gloriously found.

God has not forgotten you!  Especially those who are the sheep of His pasture.

“And Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.’”  Genesis 41:41 (ESV)

A prisoner one day – in charge of the kingdom the next!

Never forget that God holds all things – and that means you – in the hollow of His hand!

HOLY DAYS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor

What is a Holy day of obligation?

To the Roman Catholic it is a day that one is required to attend mass – which is every Sunday.  It is as their catechism states, necessary.  There are other Holy Days, throughout the year to be sure, but this teaching stresses the need for the believer to be involved in regular worship.

I’m curious as to what something like this would mean to your average run-of-the-mill Baptist?  Being obligated seems to grate on the nerve that birthed our ilk out of the separatist movement to begin with.  Here’s the first verse that came to mind when I began to wrap my thoughts around this question.

“. . . not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”  Hebrews 10:25  ESV

I see the words, “neglecting” and “obligation” as contrasting . . . at least in this context.  Many of today’s believers have turned neglecting into an art form – developing a system where by they reinterpret Holy Script as mere suggestions – good suggestions, but suggestions nevertheless.  How does this develop? 

It comes with a distorted view of God.  We perhaps see Him as our personal Protector who is at our beckon call – rather than a Holy and Righteous Creator who has every right to make any demand upon our lives at any time He so desires.

In considering the idea of obligation, I’m confronted with just how often we may deem God to be obligated toward us without returning the love.  Here's a thought . . . May we stop and consider just how often our neglect collides head on with God’s word – exposing a hesitancy to surrender our complete selves to Christ!  May this epiphany lead to a renewed spiritual hunger turning obligation into opportunity?

Trust and obey!

DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, October 22 2017 00:00

Are you fond of conversing about your faith?

Seems that so many find this a drudgery or danger (unless they know the crowd is with them).  Most believers actually do enjoy discussing deep spiritual truths when the location and environment are safe – a place where our conclusions and perhaps our leaps will not be seriously challenged.  But it gets dicey when others seriously question or even adamantly oppose our presuppositions and conclusions.

I’ve noticed over the years that many long-time Christians are much too quick to use well-worn cliches that sound great to the cheerleaders but may actually do more harm than good for those not familiar with our jargon.  Here’s the thing, nothing firms up your point of view like God’s word.  Being able to say, “Sacred scripture teaches this . . .” rather than, “well this is what I think.”  Because in the end our clever use of glib speech will never usher in the desired change that only Sacred Script can accomplish.

So . . .

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
