When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.” (John 13:12-14) There will be moments in your life when God gives you an opportunity to serve...
Commitment To The Church
by Curt Dodd on September 4th, 2023
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10) If it was important for Jesus to identify with the local church and partner with them, don't you think it is important for you too? Many people, especially in our culture today, are faithful attendees. However, there is no commitment to a particular local church...

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (Genesis 50:20) In your life as a follower of Christ, it is guaranteed that there will be some struggles along the way. If you are walking through something that does not meet your satisfaction or your approval, you need to know that you are not in charge. God is. He is the author...

The Christian life was never meant t...
Who Are You Serving?
by Curt Dodd on February 14th, 2023
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)In this time that God has given us, we need to decide, “Will we serve the Lord?” You cannot have one foot in one place and the other foot in another camp. That is not how God wants you to be. God wants you to take ...
A Desire To Serve
by Curt Dodd on January 15th, 2023
“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave -- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:26-28)Years ago, I was studying this Scripture passage. In the middle of preparing a sermon message, I prayed this prayer, “Lord, would you...
This World Is Not Our Home
by Curt Dodd on September 10th, 2022
For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. (Hebrews 13:14) Right now in our country and on our planet, more things are wrong than right! As a result, this reality creates conflict inside the life of a believer. We want to cry out, “God, how long will you tolerate men and women living with this mentality? How long will you tolerate the treatment that we inflict on each...
