In You

Jesus, the place I desire to be more than any other in time or space is IN YOU. There are some luxurious, beautiful, adventurous mountains, islands, and vacation spots around Your globe; however, I crave above everything to be IN YOU. IN YOU is where everything I’ll ever need or want is located. IN YOU […]

My Story

So what’s your story? Where have you been? What’s your life all about? Well, I grew up living in sin. It was ugly with a lot of bad attitudes, words, and actions. In spite of that I thought I was a pretty good person as I lived with one foot in the world and one […]

Holy Ground

One of the most solemn and sobering events in the Old Testament is when Moses meets the Lord at the burning bush in Exodus three. There are a lot of people in the Old Testament with whom I wish I’d been present during their great moments with the Lord – people like Abraham, David, Elijah, […]

I Can Only Imagine

Imagine being lost in your sin and the wrath of God is abiding over you (John 3:36). Imagine feeling guilt and shame and fear for not living right. Imagine coming to an honest acknowledgment and admission of your sins and seeking Jesus. Imagine turning your life over to Him in faith as you repent and […]

You Are Everything

Happy Monday – This song by Matthew West is a few years old (2008) but when a song has biblical lyrics it could be centuries old and still speak to the heart – Jesus is everything to us and when we live that way with Jesus in first place everything is right – We have […]

How Great Thou Art

How about a Friday morning spiritual prescription for people needing a little extra boost in their spiritual walk: take two really good long looks at God’s creation as He puts His glory on display for you and then listen to the beautiful a cappella song below. It is guaranteed to improve your spiritual health. I […]

Nearer, Still Nearer

One of the most beautiful, spiritual songs is Nearer, Still Nearer. Of course, I am bias because it’s in the top five songs on my list for my own walk with the Lord. The song has a biblical progression to it. It begins with a prayer for God to bring us closer and closer to […]

Your Great Name

When you say the name of Jesus you have said a mouthful. Read this list slowly: Jesus is Immanuel (God with us), Christ, Lord, Master, Teacher, Son of God, God the Son, Son of Man, Savior, Redeemer, Word, I AM, Head of the Church, Lamb of God, Good Shepherd, Bread of Life, Light of the […]

Amazed

This Sunday we will study Psalm 19 as we close out our series on the Psalms. “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse(sky) is declaring the work of His hands” (Psalm 19:1). Look up at the sun, moon, stars and clouds – they are preaching to us, “LOOK AT HOW […]

Almost Home

I don’t even know what to write after watching the video on this song. It communicates one of the most powerful messages I have ever heard/seen in a song/video. You will want to watch it more than once. The message is what following Jesus is all about – one day we will be home with […]

You Can Have Me

Happy New Year! Beginning January 3 (8:30-9:15 a.m.) we will begin an in-depth bible study of Hebrews on Zoom. You are welcome to join us. Contact me @ homer@whchurchofchrist.org to join in the study of this amazing book. It’s not in Jesus’ nature, personality, or Lordship as the royal Son of God to reject us […]

Closer

A noble goal for 2021 is to be closer to the Lord than ever before. There is nothing in this life more fulfilling and brings more peace and joy than a closer relationship with Jesus. Rather than just being “religious” and go through the motions let’s pursue a really rich relationship with the Lord in […]

Born Again

As we wave goodbye and say “good riddance” to 2020 we look ahead to 2021 with hope. You may be thinking about career opportunities, housing arrangements, or travel plans, but the most important consideration is to do some self-examination of where we are spiritually (II Corinthians 13:5). I’m pretty sure I’m not the Lone Ranger, […]

What a Day That Will Be

My devotional from yesterday moved me deeper into the biblical theme of “our citizenship is in heaven”. In case you forgot: “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our lowly condition into conformity with His glorious body, […]

Live with Abandon

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body”. (Philippians 3:20-21). Happy Monday earthlings who have their citizenship in […]
