It’s Not Too Late
by Curt Dodd on November 4th, 2023
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) You might be wondering, “Is it too late for my whole family, or one family member to be saved? I know they have never given their life to Christ.” How many of you have a family member on your mind right now? You k...
How To Be A Godly Leader
by Curt Dodd on October 22nd, 2023
To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them -- not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples ...
A Sacred Sermon
by Curt Dodd on October 6th, 2023
And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. (Revelation 12:11) Have you heard a sermon that was extremely encouraging and exactly what you needed at that moment? Think about how amazing it was, that God gave you a word right when you needed it. I am sure it was an unforgettable experience. What if God i...
Hospitality Leads To Evangelism
by Curt Dodd on September 10th, 2023
Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. – 1 Peter 4:9From today’s key Scripture passage, it is very clear that in order to live a godly, God-honoring life, we need to be hospitable. But do you know what that means – to be hospitable? It means to open your home. More specifically, it means to open your home without grumbling or complaining.This was modeled so well for us in Scripture. R...

Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll -- are they not in your record? (Psalm 56:8) Have you shed tears with someone? You didn't do it as an act; they just came. Tears say, “I care.” The Christian life does not have to be lived without tears. Tears are very important. As one person said, “Tears are the words that the heart cannot share.” God allows us to share that brokenness. Sadly, I ...

“For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” (Luke 12:12) I love the story of D.L. Moody. It all began in 1858 when D.L. Moody was a shoe clerk in Boston. At the time, he was involved in a Bible study class, and he had a Bible teacher by the name of Kimball. Because he was broken over the spiritual condition of his students, Kimball showed up one day in the back room o...
A Humble Life
by Curt Dodd on April 19th, 2023
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear and obey what is written in it, because the time is near. John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from Him who is and was and is to come, and from the seven Spirits before His throne. (Revelation 1:3-4) We can learn much about humility from reading John’s writings. John...
Your Testimony and God’s Word
by Curt Dodd on February 28th, 2023
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) We have so much power available to make a difference for the Kingdom because of what Jesus has done for us. I want us to look at two specific ways we can use Christ’s power in ou...
Boldly Stand for Christ
by Curt Dodd on January 27th, 2023
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)I used to love snow skiing. One time, ...
A Sense of Obligation
by Curt Dodd on November 9th, 2022
I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are in Rome. For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. (Romans 1:14-16)This is a very powerful passage! If you were ever looking for a simple se...
