I’ve got a question for you: How important is a person’s outlook on life?Personally, I have always thought it is hugely important. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” If we go through life with low expectations, then we will probably not be disappointed! We will be like Charlie Brown in the Peanuts cartoon strip at the beginning of a baseball season. He was approaching the new season with low expectations. Linus says, “Remember, Charlie Brown, you win some and you lose some.” Charlie responds, “That would be nice.” In reality, life......

I have shared about faith in recent weeks and I will add some final thoughts on this subject today. But first think about what we have learned— Our capacity for exercising faith is completely dependent on our growth in grasping the goodness and greatness of our God. The more that I understand how awesome is my God the better able I am to trust Him. A great God produces a big faith! If you want to grow your faith, begin by learning more about God. But ultimately you learn faith by exercising......

Let’s think about faith today. We know from scriptures that every good thing in life is from the Lord—including faith. He supplies us faith through His— ·       Word – “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). ·       Prayer – “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief” (Mark 9:24). ·       Spirit – “The fruit of the Spirit is…faithfulness (full of faith)” (Galatians 5:22). And, of course, it is ultimately supplied by His— ·       Grace – “For it is by grace…through faith…it is the gift of God” (Galatians 5:22). We know these things. But even though......

Less than two months ago, Scottie Scheffler, a University of Texas graduate, was a 25-year-old in his third season on the PGA Circuit, ranked 15th in the world, but still seeking his first victory on the game’s top tour. As of March 27, after winning three of five events, Scheffler shot up to No. 1 in the world. But this past Sunday, April 10, Scheffler won the prestigious Master’s Golf Tournament at Augustus National, and is now a Master’s champion as well. Scheffler admitted at the press conference following the victory that......

I ran across an article recently written by a woman from St. Augustine whose husband, an airline pilot, was constantly asking where certain items were located in their house. This had become annoying to the wife and so, on one occasion, when her husband asked where the salt was—she answered sarcastically, “How on earth can you find Detroit at night in a blizzard, but you can’t find the salt in your own kitchen?” The husband responded, “Well darling, they don’t move Detroit!” It can be frustrating when things get lost, but it......

I want to share with you a funny story from back home… A Louisiana game warden had been tracking Boudreaux, the infamous Cajun poacher. Late one night he stumbled upon the criminal’s cabin. Climbing upon the roof, the game warden waited for the dawn, hoping to jump the poacher as he emerged. The game warden after a restless night of trying to keep quiet and be still, heard Boudreaux making breakfast the next morning. The smell of bacon frying and coffee brewing became a temptation to his stomach. Then, to his surprise,......

A few nights ago I was watching spring baseball on the MLB network and it gave me a really good feeling…I suppose it brought back childhood memories of playing baseball and thoughts of how much I loved it when the spring rolled around and baseball began. I can recall vividly in my mind the distinct smell of spring in the air and the sight of beautiful green grass carpeting a baseball field. I remember the feeling of slipping my left hand in a glove, gripping the seams of the baseball in my......

Last week I called upon my Church Family to pray for the people of the Ukraine and for all the families pulled apart by this war—they have already suffered too much—and to pray for the pastors and religious leaders who are providing ministry within the zone of conflict at great personal risk. I challenge you to pray daily in your Quiet Time and weekly in your FBC Pompano Connect Group. You are welcome to come, as well, to our Prayer Room at the church—as you feel moved to pray. But prayer is not all that......

As you are painfully aware, Russia began an invasion of Ukraine in recent weeks in what has been called the largest conventional military attack in Europe since World War II. So far 13 thousand people have been killed, 2.3 million people of the Ukraine have been displaced and 100 billion in property damage has been reported. This is beyond upsetting to see what the people of the Ukraine are going through and mind-boggling to figure out why this attack occurred in the first place. How are we to respond to such a......

Years ago, singer Willie Nelson gave his twenty-three-year-old daughter some unusual advice. He told her, “Paula, look at everything I do closely, and do the opposite.” By way of contrast, at about the same age, the Apostle Paul said,“Follow my advice, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). That sounds like pretty good advice! I’m sure we should all strive to follow the example of Paul. Maybe if we do—we, too, will serve as an example of a good example! Can you imagine the kind of impact the Apostle Paul......
