Pastor’s Corner: Who do you work for?

says: “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” I am sure many of you have asked yourselves, as I have, “How do I know what I am doing is God’s will?”  This question, I have to believe, has been asked by many followers of Christ as we try and discern what God’s plan is for our life. A wise person showed me this verse when I was trying to figure out where God was leading…

Pastor’s Corner: Confession of the Heart and Soul

. I acknowledged my sin to you and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.   HPC,  please read the entire when you get a chance.  I have been challenged by this Psalm since last week when this Psalm was shared at a conference I went to.  These verses were lived out at  “Mountain Men” men’s ministry this past Sunday.  One of the…

Pastor’s Corner: You need a workout!

says: for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. I have to make a confession, I am sharing this verse because I have not been working out on a physical level as I should.  That being said this verse is still a great verse.  Often times we can be more concerned about our physical bodies than our spiritual.…

Pastor’s Corner: Woe is Me

  Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgement Often times and I mean too often, I get in a pity party due to my own sin and mistakes.  What happens is my pride takes over and I have a battle in my mind of how I am right and everyone is wrong.  Whether I am right or not it doesn’t always matter.  The point is God is doing a work in my heart…

Pastor’s Corner: Pick a Candidate

Don’t you just love politics?  Yeah right……  You hear a lot about how each candidate is a driving force for your ability to have freedom, whether it is freedom from government or freedom from poverty.  What does it mean to you to have freedom?  I am reminded of a favorite verse. . For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.   The freedom God wants to give us is…

Pastor’s Corner

And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” Are you listening to the whisper of the LORD in your life today?  With the noise of the world it is hard to hear. This week as I have been reflecting…

Pastor’s Corner

So you have one last chance to tell your kids a bit of wisdom before you die.  What do you tell them?  The world will give you some advice.   Tell them to work hard,  have a great attitude,  maybe live life to its fullness.  All vain attempts at what they failed to do on this earth.  David’s words in should be your answer. When David’s time to die drew near, he commanded Solomon his son, saying, “I am about…

God of this City

There is a song we sing at High Pointe Church called “God of the City” by Chris Tomlin.  In this song we sing “You’re the light in the darkness, You’re the hope to the hopeless, You’re the peace to the restless. There is no one like our God”. I love this song, it could be an anthem for a church plant, which we are.  The answer to all our questions, problems, or whatever you want to call them, is found…
