Please Post Your Comments at the end of the article.  We appreciate your thoughts on this article.

We would ask you to pray about each article we print here.  If the article is about a Preacher or Ministry which we feel is preaching or teaching false doctrine or false teachings, we would ask you to be in prayer that the Lord would touch their hearts and minds so that they might see the error in their ways and turn to the Holy God who is Lord over and of our lives.  We mean no ill will to anyone or any ministry but we must, according to Scripture, warn the people when we see the enemy at work regardless of the nature if it is contrary to God's Word.

A Thought to Ponder
with Pastor Wise


Mark 1:6 – It’s the Message, not the Messenger


Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10 ESV)

Waking up every morning with a roof over your head, food in the fridge, and a job to go to can make it easy to repeat the words Jesus said in Matthew 6:10. Life is comfortable for us. Yeah, of course this is God’s will for our lives. BUT, how would you react if your nice, neatly packaged life, were shaken up:

  • What if you and your family encounter unexpected chaos?
  • What if Jesus’ path includes unexpected turns for you?
  • What if following Jesus really costs you a comfortable life in your community?
  • What if God asks for a far greater sacrifice than you had anticipated?

These can be hard questions to think about as we grab our $5 cup of coffee from Starbucks.

Some of us can read these questions and think, “Amen, that is right!”; while still believing these questions have nothing to do with us personally. We might feel that we have already paid our dues in life or that the radical, “follow-me” statements, are meant for single Christians without kids. Or maybe, God has blessed you with so much, you are letting his very blessing be a barrier to following his will right now.

No matter where you are in life, Jesus has called all of his followers to take up their cross and follow him (Acts 17:11). God’s will can look different in our individual lives, but the call to embrace it is the same each of us.

Ask Yourself: How will you respond when God’s will is different than your will?

Billy Sunday"Take 15 minutes each day to listen to God talking to you; take
minutes each day to talk to God; take 15 minutes each day to talk to others about God." - Billy Sunday
Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God. Maybe that would be a good thing for us to do also?

Charles Spurgeon
Charles Spurgeon, known widely as the "Prince of Preachers" has given the world many good and lasting sermons, quotes and information to help in your walk with the Lord, especially concerning helping to win souls for Christ.  Though you may not agree with everything Spurgeon said, he has left us with much to be thankful for.

Then & Now
A preacher in those days, when he felt God called him to preach, didn't hunt up a college or seminary, he hunted up a good horse, took off across the country and began crying "Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world"!   Today they look for the best paying job with the best retirement package.
