Faith & Worship

  • God is the potter, we are the clay

    In his book Illustrations of Bible Truth, H.A. Ironside points out the folly of humans judging each other. He relates an incident in the life of a man named Bishop Potter.

    “He was sailing for Europe on one of the great transatlantic ocean liners. When he went on board, he found that another passenger was to share the cabin with him. After going to see the accommodations, he came up to the purser’s desk and inquired if he could leave his gold watch and other valuables in the ship’s safe.

  • Experiencing the awesome miracles of God

     

    Last week I shared a wonderful miracle about an ant that carried a contact lens on a mountain so that it was found and returned to its owner. The experience moved the owner closer to God. 

  • God leads us to faith through subtle cues

     

    God is pursuing you and me. He is like a hound from heaven, chasing after us with tail wagging ready to welcome us home into his presence.

    If we have never fully accepted him, then he will resort to using the many subtle and astounding events in our lives. As Jesus reminds us, if we have eyes to see and ears to hear God at work in our lives, then we will recognize him and believe.

  • What to do when God’s will isn’t our own

    Jonah is a prophet of God, and he wants to do what God wants him to do or say. Then God does the unthinkable: He asks him to do the wrong thing.

    Has that ever happened to you? You go to God willing to do anything, anytime, anywhere, and then God whispers your name deep in your soul, and tells you His will, and you don’t like what you’ve heard?

    That is what happened to Jonah, and he ran in the opposite direction. He heads for Tarshish 2,000 because he didn’t want to save the Ninevites.

  • Never too late to start studying the Bible

    Elliot’s wife asked him to leave their home. He had spent most of his life on drugs and alcohol. His life was crashing down around him; with nowhere to stay, he checked into a hotel on Christmas Eve.

    He was contemplating suicide when he noticed a Gideon’s Bible on top of the TV.

    “Who needs that,” he said to himself as he smacked it off the TV and onto the floor.

  • Service: A key to discipleship, not heaven

    A man dies and meets St. Peter at the pearly gates.

    St. Peter says, “You need 100 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach 100 points, you get in.”

    The man says, “I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.”

    St. Peter gives him three points.

  • Historic church restoration begins

    After 117 years, DeHaven Baptist Church is getting a facelift.

    The historical structure, located in downtown La Grange, is undergoing major exterior renovations beginning this week to restore the masonry and protect the structure.

    Keith Bradford, chair of the church’s property and space committee, said the restoration will help protect the building for future generations.

  • Hope Health Clinic features new kiosk

    A La Grange health clinic is reaching out to even more patients with the installation of a women’s wellness kiosk.

    The Hope Health Clinic opened in September to serve the underinsured residents of Oldham, Henry, Trimble and Carroll counties.

    The kiosk, which looks like a small automated teller machine, allows women to access modules about a variety of wellness issues, including asthma, cancer, depression, domestic violence and smoking cessation.
