GETTING THE MESSAGE/Christ is risen!

Easter is this coming Sunday, and it is good to remember the hope that the resurrected Christ gives to fallen men in a fallen world.

THOMAS/Moscow massacre

A mass shooting at a concert hall in Moscow killed more than 130 people. With many others seriously or gravely wounded the number of dead is likely to rise.

DUNCAN/The janitor’s Psalm

When you think of Psalm 84, you probably don’t think of it as a janitor’s song. You might be asking why I’ve titled it, “The Janitor’s Song.” Simply this: T

DUNCAN/God help us

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn to Psalm 83. This Psalm is an imprecatory Psalm. An imprecatory Psalm is when the Old Testament people of God prayed that He would judge and even curse His and their enemies.

THOMAS/The smell of mendacity

Court decisions can sound complicated because they sometimes contain legal language that is difficult for a layperson to understand. That’s not the situation in the case of Fulton County,

GETTING THE MESSAGE/When man seeks his own glory

The great sin of the old world at Babel continues to this day: “Let us make a name for ourselves.” God’s glory is denied, and man seeks his own glory and good apart from God. We are all pulled that way, and it leads to misery and death.

THOMAS/Biden, Congress need an intervention

When some people appear beyond help because of addiction or other circumstances they can’t control, family members have been known to stage an intervention. Congress and President Biden need an intervention as their addiction to spending exceeds anything seen in history.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Soldiers of Christ arise!

In Isaiah chapter 1, the Lord laments that his people do not know him and seek him: “The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s crib, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.”

DUNCAN/You wouldn’t listen

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 81. In this great Psalm, we find three calls or summons. The first call is in verses 1 – 5. It’s a summons to rejoice. It’s literally a call to worship.


In Revelation 1:10, the apostle John says, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day.” In the Spirit means under the influence of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit was in John in a special way; to give him the Lord’s prophetic word, which we have in the book of Revelation.

DUNCAN/Restore us, O God

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 80 as we continue to make our way through the Third Book of the Psalms. In Psalm 80, we see the fall of the Northern Kingdom.

THOMAS/Trump promises to protect Christians

Speaking to an audience of devoted fans at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville last Friday, Donald Trump said if re-elected president he will

DUNCAN/Brought very low

Turn with me to Psalm 79. Let me remind you of the context for this Psalm. Jerusalem has been destroyed. Many of the children of Israel have been taken off into captivity. Hundreds – thousands – have been left dead in the streets.

THOMAS/Willis vs. Wade vs. euphemisms

During questioning of Fulton County, Georgia prosecutor Nathan Wade about his “relationship” with District Attorney Fani Willis there was a moment that cut through all the euphemisms we have become accustomed to when it comes to human behavior.

DUNCAN/We will tell the next generation

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 78 as we continue to work through the Third Book of the Psalms together. This is one of the longer Psalms in the Psalter, but the outline provided will give some sense of where Asaph is going in this Psalm.

THOMAS/The unmaking of a president

Beginning with the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and through the re-election of Richard Nixon in 1972, political journalist and biographer Theodore H. White wrote books called “The Making of a President.” Were he alive today he might title one about Joe Biden “The Unmaking of a President.”

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Bringing good out of evil

It is the wisdom of God to bring good out of evil. The ultimate example of that is the Son of God being put to death by men, but God accomplishing the salvation of sinners through it. In the life of a believer the Lord also brings good out of bad.

DUNCAN/Comfort in trouble

If you have your Bibles, please open them with me to Psalm 77. This Psalm is one of those Psalms that teaches us how to live the Christian life in the darkest of days.

THOMAS/Let us all pray

The number of President Biden’s gaffes and flip-flops on issues would fill a book, but he combined several categories of verbal meanderings at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast.

EDITORIAL/Supervisor Gerald Fauci

District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen spoke to the Madison County Republican Women last week and, predictably, talked out of both sides of his mouth.
