Nothing is Free

ShepherdCalls_WPIt was dinnertime. My wife and I sat at the table watching all the activity behind our house. Three deer were by the salt block and more down in the woods. Several turkeys wandered around the yard scavenging. The hummingbirds were busily eating at the feeders and buzzing one another.

Woodpeckers and tufted titmice were making regular visits to the peanut feeder. Cardinals, blue jays, and rose-breasted grosbeaks were eating

What is Faith?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Hebrews 11:6 is about as straight forward as a verse could possibly be, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” (NASU)

If any human wants to please the Creator, he will have to exercise faith in the Creator. The created human will have

Circles

ShepherdCalls_WPSome time ago, I attended a meeting where a colleague was trying to get a motion passed. Basically, I agreed with his motion. It was biblical. He quoted several scriptures in his presentation. A chorus of “Amen” indicated many people agreed; but when it came time to vote, I voted against it.

I had several problems with his motion. First, his attitude and demeanor in presenting the motion seemed lacking

Let the Peace of Christ Rule

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Peace is a marvelous quality to have. In fact, peace is part of the nature and character of God. Having peace in our hearts just might bring about spiritual awakening and real revival in our churches which would spill over into our communities.

Isaiah 9:6 introduces Jesus as the Prince of Peace. The angels in Luke 2:14 announced peace among men because the Messiah is born.

Good Thinking: Chaos and Order

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“And God stepped out in space, and He looked around and said: ‘I’m lonely — I’ll make me a world!’ And as far as the eye of God could see, darkness covered everything, blacker than a hundred midnights down in a cypress swamp. — Then God smiled. And the light broke; and the darkness rolled up on one side, and the light stood shining on the

Christ and Country

ShepherdCalls_WPOn Friday, the United States of America will be 238 years old. For some time now, I have been prayerfully pondering my country’s birthday. As you might expect, a part of my ponderings pertain to my country and Christ. There are those who tell us our country was founded on Christian precepts. Then again, there are those who insist that it was not. I am always open to truth, but

Humility

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Humility seems to be a lost virtue in 2014, at least in Western culture. The Bible speaks a great deal about humility and describes humble persons as godly persons.

Humility in church members, clergy and laity alike, might foster revival in America. Ephesians 4 and Colossians 3 instruct us to live humble and gentle lives. Romans 12:3 gives a simple yet profound definition of humility, “For
