The scriptures tell us that, “Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and forever”.  No matter how much we change in our thoughts, actions, or words, Jesus will never change.  In today’s world, every day is becoming harder and harder to live a life that demonstrates the example Jesus gave us to live by.  Without God’s help...(Click "Read More" to continue).

Focus Scripture:   1 Corinthians 3:9  “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.”  This church is small, another church is large. One church is in the rural part of the county; yet another church is closer to downtown.  Some sing music with a band—electric guitars, drums, etc. Others sing hymns from a hymnbook and use a piano and maybe an organ.  Is “one size fits all” applicable to churches?  ...(Click "Read More" to continue).

From darkness, shadows are falling minute by minute across the valleys and mountains of Western North Carolina.  The light breaks forth and we awaken to a beautiful sunrise.  The Carolina blue sky with a breath of wind has turned the night sky into a bright sunny day. Queen Esther in the Old Testament said, “For such a time as this” and my mother said, “In this day and time.”  We must be careful.  The darkness will creep into our bright sunny day.  Our day will be filled with...(Click "Read More" to continue).

Focus Scripture: Matthew 9:35-38  "Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."

Focus Scripture: Acts 1:8  "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  (NIV) My life and heart toward missions changed in August 2005.  Following Hurricane Katrina, I went on my first trip in partnership with North Carolina Baptist Men to do relief work.  I WAS HOOKED!  Over the next two years, our church group made thirteen trips to Gulfport, Mississippi.  All the while, we shared God’s love with...(click "Read More" to continue).

Jesus said, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” John said something similar in his first epistle: “and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him” (1 John 3:22). Clearly, both Jesus and John want us to understand that obedience is fundamental to effective prayer.  (Click "Read More" to continue reading.)

Celebrating the Value of God’s Family of Churches The Buncombe Baptist Association can be called a fellowship or family of churches.  I like the family imagery because as Christians we are truly brothers and sisters in Christ.  It is most appropriate for our congregations to relate to each other as “sister churches” – together one day to be presented as the bride of Christ....(click "Read More" to continue).

Missions Giving

The subject of money and finances is mentioned in the scriptures more than 800 times.  God has a divine plan to finance His work and further His Kingdom by allowing us to exercise stewardship over the resources He has provided.  We are commanded not to tempt or try God in any way, except one, that being our faithful stewardship of finances.

When Jesus started His earthly ministry, inaugurating the eternal Kingdom of God on earth, He was only 30 years old. Scholars tell us that His disciples were also very young men, some even teenagers. Likewise, the Apostle Paul entrusted the care of the entire Christian congregation in Ephesus to a young leader named...(click "Read More" to continue).

Passing on the Love It is a joy to touch others with the love of Christ Jesus. What a blessing we receive when we share His peace that passes all understanding, our faith in the living God Who is always faithful, God’s grace that that is not cheap, but costly and precious, and all wrapped in Christ’s love that knows no bounds. As we look for ways to pass on the love of Christ, one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever...(click "Read More" to continue).
