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,…

Thank You, Lord!

With this month of November, we are ever mindful of our blessings even more so than normal with the thanksgiving holiday. Every day God truly loads us up with blessings, and we have so much to be thankful for all year long. During times of extreme trials, we are even more so reminded of how…

Faith Living

A few weeks ago, Bro. Tom Furse and his wife, Shelly, were with us, and he preached in all three Sunday services. He spoke on “Faith Living,” and it was a wonderful blessing to me personally. It is really at the heart of what God desires for all of His children. The sad reality is…

Loving the World Like God

We sing the song “For God So Loved the World” periodically in our worship services here at Summerville Baptist Church. The second verse is very important for us to be attentive to in order for us to be obedient to God’s will for our lives. It goes like this: “If God so loved the world…

Peace on Earth

“Peace on earth, good will toward men,” is a promise that the angelic host declared to the shepherds on the night of our dear Saviour’s birth recorded for us in Luke 2:14. However, in Luke 12:51, Jesus makes a different declaration to a group of people in response to a question from Peter. There Jesus…
