Every Day Is Thanks Giving

November 28, 2019

Every Day Is Thanks Giving Sometimes I get so full at Thanksgiving dinner I skip dessert. This is unfortunate because the end of the meal with its pumpkin pie and whipped cream is one of the best parts. The vision John describes at the end of the book of Revelation is definitely one that sparks thanksgiving. He begins by seeing the Holy City,...

Devotion for October 02, 2005

October 2, 2005

Devotion for October 02, 2005 Pastor Rich Clement’s twenty-something daughter was going through a very difficult time. She had a good job and close friends, but life clearly wasn’t what she’d hoped it would be. One day, in her weekly call home, she asked her dad what his “secret” was to being happy. He replied simply, “The key to life is...

Blessings Overlooked

November 1, 2009

Today_with_the_President Blessings Overlooked In the Nyquist family, after we finish Thanksgiving dinner, it's tradition for us each to share a few of the things we're especially thankful for. This year as we go around the table, I'm looking forward to thanking God for my wife, Cheryl, who has been the delight of my heart for 28 years. I'll...

Prayer and Hope

July 8, 2015

Prayer and Hope Most of us feel ambivalent about our prayer life. We believe in the importance of prayer, but we do not think that we pray well. Like the disciples who asked Jesus to teach them how to pray, we know there is room for improvement. Prayer is mysterious—but it is not rocket science. In today’s passage the apostle Paul describes...

Gates of Death

March 6, 2020

Gates of Death The Bible’s gates of hell or “gates of death” (v. 13) may remind Lord of the Rings fans of the Black Gate of Mordor. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and the movie adaptations, the Black Gate is a fearsome structure—dark, huge, seemingly invulnerable, and guarded by legions of powerful, evil creatures. Merely to approach this gate...

Today with the President November 2019

November 1, 2019

Today_with_the_President Thanksgiving at the Jobe home is a festive event. Since my wife, Dee, has a large extended family, we often crowd as many as 30 people around our table. But before we carve the turkey and enjoy the delicious meal, we gather in a circle to pray. Family members and guests share the things for which they are thankful.

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification

May 7, 2013

Intercession: Prayer for Sanctification “Do as I say, not as I do.” It’s a tempting refrain, especially for parents who live under the constant scrutiny of sets of small eyes. And it’s not always the wrong message. Children ought to wait until appropriate ages to do many of the things their parents do: drive a car, wear makeup, or trim the...

True Worship

November 1, 2019

Theology_Matters True Worship In many churches, the phrase "praise and worship" describes a certain style of music. Although worship certainly includes music, it also involves much more. One definition of worship might be "any act of devotion which is offered to God." In His conversation with the Samaritan woman, recorded in John 4, Jesus...
