Love one another

We are going to leave our study in the book of Acts this week to look at this psalm. This is a psalm of ascents, which means it was likely sung by Israelites as they neared Jerusalem on their way up to worship the Lord at an annual feast, such as Passover.

GETTING THE MESAGE/Christ’s victory over death

Revelation chapter 5 is a vision of the exaltation and coronation of the Lord Jesus Christ after his victory over the world and the devil by his death.

DUNCAN/He answered, forgave, and avenged

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 99 as we continue to make our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms.

THOMAS/The Biden cover-up

Anyone hoping the interview of President Biden by George Stephanopoulos of ABC News would allay fears by growing numbers of Democrats that the president is not mentally fit to serve another four years must be disappointed.

EDITORIAL/1 step forward, 2 steps back?

When the Madison County Board of Supervisors meets next week, it’s possible they will take action on future office space for the District Attorney, Tax Assessor and Tax Collector.

EDITORIAL/We hold these truths...

We remember our independence with these excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776: When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the …

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Christ addresses the dullness of men

In Luke 12, the Lord Jesus speaks before perhaps the largest crowd he would address in his ministry.  In verses 54-56, he speaks “to the crowds” and uses two illustrations to show the dullness of men to spiritual discernment. 

DUNCAN/Joy to the world

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 98 as we continue to work our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. Psalm 98 is another Psalm that teaches us about worship, but it also points us to Jesus’ coming.

MCRAE/Investing in Your Future

Starting out as a young person today isn’t what it was when many of us were young. Straight out of college, you’re paying $300 per month for health insurance, $80 per month for your cell phone, almost three bucks for a gallon of gas – all of this being stacked atop increasingly expensive rental rates, utility bills, car payments, and grocery costs (and stagnant wages).

The debate between President Biden and former president Donald Trump Thursday night on CNN ought to be more than rehearsed answers and soundbites we’ve heard before.

DUNCAN/How are we to worship?

If you have your Bibles, I invite you to turn with me to Psalm 96 as we continue to work our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. We’re in a section of Psalms which gives us an opportunity to think about how we are to worship as Christians.

THOMAS/When you never have to say ‘sorry’

The best jobs in Washington are the ones in which you never have to admit error and apologize. These jobs are mostly in government and the major media. While “Love means never having to say …

GUEST COLUMN/The danger of do-nothing conservatives

Before I came to Mississippi, I was a Member of the British Parliament for 12 years for Clacton.  Donald Trump’s friend, Nigel Farage, has now decided to run for election in Clacton on July 4th.

DUNCAN/Come, let us worship

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 95 as we continue to make our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. This Psalm that we’re going to study today is about worship. There’s nothing more important in the Christian life than worship and so it’s very appropriate that we would be studying a Psalm calling us to worship.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Praising God

In the second half of Revelation Chapter 4, we are shown the praise and worship of God from angelic orders in heaven. In verse 6 we read, “And around the throne on each side of the throne are four living creatures, full of eyes in the front and behind, the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight.” These creatures never cease praising God.

DUNCAN/The avenger

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 94, as we continue to work our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. This Psalm is a prayer for vengeance. But that’s Old Testament, right?

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Jesus died for sinners

In Revelation chapter 4, the apostle John relates to us a view of the throne of God. The vision is symbolic.  The symbols are to be interpreted to understand the truths that they convey to us.

GUEST COLUMN/Biden makes us pay for it twice

Government waste fact of the day: Mississippi sends as much taxpayer money to our universities to educate students in worthless fields, like gender studies, as we do for mechanical engineers.

THOMAS/Politicized justice for Trump

Since Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg reached back to the 1930s to credit Republican Thomas Dewey for “usher(ing) in the era of the modern, independent, professional prosecutor” in Bragg’s defense of his role in the conviction of former president Donald Trump, perhaps Bragg should consider a speech delivered in 1940 by U.S Attorney General Robert H. Jackson to the country’s chief federal prosecutors and U.S. Attorneys.

DUNCAN/Dressed in majesty

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 93. As we come to this Psalm we’ll learn a very important thing about the Christian life. And it’s simply this: Believers read their life in light of the character of God Himself.
