Receiving Encouragement
by Curt Dodd on January 14th, 2023
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.  (Hebrews 3:13) As followers of Christ, we are called to be encouraging to one another. We are not only called to be encouraging, but we are instructed to do so daily. When you encourage someone, you are trying to build them up; and you are reminding them about whom they ar...  Read More
The Lord’s Amazing Power
by Curt Dodd on January 11th, 2023
Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.  (Revelation 10:1-2)What an amazing picture of the Lord’s power we see in this Scripture passa...  Read More
Lean on God in Uncertainty
by Curt Dodd on December 30th, 2022
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)When you are in the middle of a season of uncertainty, and have more questions than answers; do you find yourself wondering where God is in the midst of it all? Maybe you ask questions like, “God, where are you?” or “Do you really and truly care about me?” or “What are you trying to do?”Feelings of doubt, fear, and anxiety often pro...  Read More
The Impact of Jesus
by Curt Dodd on December 27th, 2022
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.  I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”  (Revelation 1:17-18) There has never been anyone who has made a greater impact on history and on our world than Jesus Christ! Jesus is ...  Read More
The Holy Spirit Helps
by Curt Dodd on December 3rd, 2022
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.  (Romans 8:26)If we want to be effective for the Kingdom of God, we need the help of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit power that raised Jesus from the dead is the very same power we have available to us as His followers. As we st...  Read More
Just Forgive
by Curt Dodd on November 30th, 2022
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”  Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”  (Matthew 18:21-22)Let’s face it: Forgiveness is complicated! When Simon Peter asked Jesus how many times he should forgive his brother or sister, he already had a number in mind. In fact, he...  Read More

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. (Matthew 18:21-22)We talked about forgiving others as Christ forgave us, and how difficult this can be. When forgiving, we must remember that we cannot fully forgive anyone in our own power. We...  Read More
Are You Thirsty?
by Curt Dodd on September 12th, 2022
For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13) The problem in our country is that we are not thirsty enough. How long will it take for us to realize how dry we are? The moment we come to that dryness and cry out, “Oh, Jesus, save me, help me, change me, make me yours,” that's when we will feel and sense the life-giving water of the River of Life flowing through eac...  Read More
Replacing God
by Curt Dodd on September 7th, 2022
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)One of the tragedies that we see in our nation every day is that we have forgotten the Lord and have replaced Him with our activity. Think about that for a moment. Many people want to do the activities of religion, rather than a...  Read More
Never Stop Worshiping
by Curt Dodd on September 1st, 2022
All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God. (Revelation 7:11) When we worship, we join heaven. Do you realize that nothing is more important than aligning your life with the will and purpose of God in worship?   The angels never stop worshiping. Night and day, they continue to...  Read More
