The Charcoal Fire

by Pastor Steve Ellison

A couple of weeks ago, I had a phone conversation with an old friend whom I had not heard from in about 10 years. He had engaged in a time of repentance and felt like God had forgiven him. However, he was struggling with forgiving himself. This is a perplexing problem for almost every Christian.

Instruments of Destruction

He was my great, great nephew, my niece’s grandson. Sadly, he is gone at 19. He proved, unfortunately, what most of us know – guns are to children (especially boys) what flowers are to bees. They will get together.

The weapon was “put away,” locked in a safe at home. The key was hidden in his grandmother’s purse, but he found the key and the gun. He called his grandmother

Family

It was my birthday, a big one. My wife decided I needed a birthday party. Perhaps she assumed I would not be available for many more. Lovingly, she set the wheels in motion. At first, she planned it to be a surprise; but we have difficulty keeping secrets from each other, and soon the “cat was out of the bag.”

My Country

by Pastor Steve Ellison

As I write on July 4th/Independence Day, I wonder about myself and my fellow countrymen. We seem ready to declare any kind of behavior as acceptable, even worthy of celebration.

For decades, we have turned a blind eye toward adultery, unethical business practices, fornication, mistreatment of the weak, pornography, failure to discipline children, no-fault divorce, homosexuality, government handouts to those capable but unwilling to provide for

Independence Day 2015

In a few days, we will again celebrate the birthday of our nation. The United States of America will be 239 years old. As you might expect, our great country has experienced many ups and downs. As soon as we solve one problem, another one rises. That’s life. It happens to nations and individuals alike. Repetitive national crises cause some to lose hope. As we prepare to celebrate our national

Victory Over Temptation

by Pastor Steve Ellison

I am not sure that I am ready to declare that temptation to evil is good but it is certainly clear that it is often used by God for good.

Immediately following the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit sent Him into the wilderness for the express purpose of being tempted by Satan. Because Jesus quotes from Deuteronomy chapter eight during the temptations and because both
