This morning in our RMM readings we read about Jacob's vow to tithe.  The topic of tithing is always a live one among Evangelicals.  Does the principle still apply today?  I've written a brief reflection that I hope will be useful to you.  You can find it here. On Sunday after church I had a number of good conversations with folks in response to the message.  I was asked a couple different versions of the same question and have posted an answer here that some of you...keep reading»»

WTTB With Pastor Paul: The Least Of These

Category: WTTB Reflections

This morning in our RMM readings we read the Parable of The Sheep And The Goats.  This might just be the most frequently misused parable in all the Bible.  It is quoted so often in such strange and unusual ways that it seemed to warrant a clarifying reflection.  I hope the one I've written serves that end!  You can find it here. Have a blessed day. Paul Carter keep reading»»

WTTB With Pastor Bill: Genesis 24

Category: WTTB Reflections

Wiersbe’s commentary entitles this chapter, Here Comes the Bride. It is the story of how Isaac received  his bride. The chapter could be broken down in sections: 24:1-9 - The Will of the Father (Father wanting a godly wife for his son) 24: 10-49- The Witness of the Servant (trusting and being dependant on God) 24:50-60 - The Willingness of the Bride (forsaking all and doing as God would lead her) 24: 61-67 -  The Welcome of the Bridegroom (Isaac meditating...awaiting his bride,...keep reading»»

This morning in our RMM readings we read the curious story of Agabus the prophet and his warning to the Apostle Paul.  We will be meeting the gift of prophecy shortly in our 1 Corinthians preaching series so I thought a reflection on the topic might be doubly helpful.  If you are interested you can find it here.  Have a wonderful day.

This morning in our RMM readings we read about Paul's meeting with the elders in Ephesus.  Paul knew these men well having served in Ephesus for 3 years.  He leaves them a very useful challenge that continues to provide encouragement to elders in the church today.  As many of you know, our elders have a board retreat scheduled for this weekend.  Please be in prayer for that.  Our church is blessed with a plurality of elders who love the Lord, love his people and love...keep reading»»

I was tremendously encouraged as I read through the reflection on Nehemiah 8 written by my friend Pastor Marc Bertrand.  You hear a lot of good (and a lot of bad) thoughts about revival nowadays, but not much of it is more useful or more Biblical than this reflection written by Pastor Marc.  I was truly blessed and I trust you will be as well as you devote yourself to God's Word in preparation for Lord's Day worship.  You can find Pastor Marc's reflection here. Blessings...keep reading»»

Tomorrow at church we will be talking about divorce.  We will be talking about it because the Apostle Paul talked about it in 1 Corinthians 7.  This is a much neglected but very important conversation.  As some of you will have recognized, I did some "thinking in public" on this topic a month ago in preparation for this week's (and next week's) message.  A great way to prepare for thoughtful engagement tomorrow might be to reread a few of those articles.  You...keep reading»»
