Across the Preacher’s Desk: Pray Without Ceasing

March 16, 2023 - Sometimes, if we are not careful, our life becomes like the file drawer in our desk. We make a mental file folder for this drawer and in there we put everything that pertains to special subjects. We place God, religion and prayer in one file and we mark that file; “Use on Sunday only” or perhaps “Use in case of emergency.” We might add the caveat, “to be used in relation to special things.”

Across the Preacher’s Desk: Slow Down!

March 9, 2023 - Why do we live in such a mad rush? Why have you been racing about all day, as though today is your last day on earth? Why do you sit and pat your foot impatiently when your telephone call is a little slow going through?

The answer of course is always, “There is so much to be done, and so little time!” And it is true. However, have you ever heard the old saying, “Rome was not built in a day?”

Across the Preacher’s Desk: David’s Psalm Lives On!

February 9, 2023 - King David could not build a temple, but he wrote a psalm! Three temples, one after another, crumbled in the dust, but the psalm lives today in the hearts of millions. Through three thousand years, the Twenty-Third Psalm has been a source of inspiration. It is the Christian’s great symphony, the theme of which is God’s care for His own.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Or, as Paul says it, “My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”

Across the Preacher’s Desk: He Went To Church

Until I went into the sanctuary of God, then I understood.” (Psalms 73:17)

February 2, 2023 - The value of attending the public meetings of the church is a matter of dispute in the minds of many people. There are some folks who go to church regularly while others do not go at all. Then there are those who are in the services occasionally on days like Christmas, Easter and Mother’s Day.

Across the Preacher’s Desk: Do Others See Jesus in Us?

January 19, 2023 - I read a story not long ago that comes to us out of the days when passenger train travel was the common and popular method of transportation. It seems there was a little crippled boy who was carrying a basket of candy and fruit, hurrying to the passenger gate of the train station as fast as his crutches would permit him to go. As the passengers rushed through the gate, a fast-moving young business executive accidentally hit the boy’s basket, knocking its contents in every direction.
