Gems From Pastor Jim

by Jim Hughes Ps. 128:1 How happy are those who fear the LORD–all who follow his ways! There is much resistance today about fearing the Lord. The thinking is that because we live in grace, God is no longer to be feared. The emphasis is on God’s love and not His holy nature. […]

No More Prison

by Rebekah Beene It’s been many years but I used to go with a group of women for prison ministry. One of the things I learned while participating in this was that being set free was fearful to many of those women we ministered to. In fact, some would commit a crime again […]

Write, They Said

by Suzanne D. Williams Write, they said. Write your first draft, just jot down the words and don’t look back. Right words. Wrong words. Bad phrases. Poor grammar. Telling, instead of showing. Head hopping. Everything goes as long as the words land on the page. Write, they said. Don’t reread. Don’t correct yourself.  […]

Thank God for Music!

by Ada Nicholson Brownell “’Four thousand praised the Lord with the instruments I made,’ said David, ‘to praise, therewith’” (1 Chronicles 23:5 KJV). I had no idea how one would go about making a musical instrument until my brother, Dr. Joe Nicholson, who headed the Evangel University music department for many years, showed me […]

Gems From Pastor Jim

by Jim Hughes Ps. 127:1 Unless the LORD builds a house, the work of the builders is useless. Unless the LORD protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. This verse speaks to me. First, unless the Lord builds His church, the church is useless. The tendency by many is […]

Streams in the Desert – January 16

And there arose a great storm (Mark 4:37). Some of the storms of life come suddenly: a great sorrow, a bitter disappointment, a crushing defeat. Some come slowly. They appear upon the ragged edges of the horizon no larger than a man’s hand, but, trouble that seems so insignificant spreads until it covers […]
