“The Anchor of Life”

Psalm 127:3 “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Life is God’s creation. He is the giver of life, and He alone should be the taker of life. This week we had our oldest living Charter Member of Summerville Baptist Church go home to be…

Hope for the Future Romans 8:21-27

When we hope for something, it is not yet realized. When it becomes reality, it is no longer hoped for, but now it is experienced. Hope motivates us to press on in order to experience something in the future. Hope causes us to keep trying, pushing, and seeking to achieve the reality of what is…

“Thank You, Lord”

As believers and true followers of Jesus as Christ, we are all called to honor the Lord in everything we do, including our celebrations. When we celebrate a victory, a success, a special occasion, or even a New Year, it should be done to the glory of the Lord. I Corinthians 10:31 clearly states that…

The Present of Presence

The greatest gifts that we can give to anyone this year will not cost us one cent monetarily, but sadly the main focus of Christmas for far too many people has everything to do with what can be purchased and given as a gift. The greatest gift any one can give at Christmas time is…

Incarnation Celebration

This truly is the heart of what Christmas is really about. It is the worship and celebration of God coming in human form so that He could die for our sins in order to offer mankind His forgiveness, His righteousness, and His eternal life. We absolutely could not ever accomplish any of this on our…

The Difference One Life Can Make

Great potential can come out of nowhere. As we saw during our study on Joseph this past year, many people of great prominence in history have come out of very obscure beginnings. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Christmas narrative. Jesus is the greatest and most impacting man to have ever walked the…

Love, Grace, & Gratitude

These three qualities have wonderful virtues to enjoy and express in life. The Bible has much to say about each of these qualities, and it is all very positive. God makes it clear in His Word that these are qualities that He wants to be and should be in His children. As children of God,…

God is Love

The reason why God is loving to His children and His creation is because it is who He is. Love, with God, is not merely an emotion and a motivation of His actions towards those He loves. The truth is, love is who God is more than what He does. It is within His being,…
