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...  Read More

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 ...  Read More

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...  Read More

Shedding Tears
by Curt Dodd on July 18th, 2023
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 ...  Read More

Just Share
by Curt Dodd on July 14th, 2023
“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...  Read More

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...  Read More

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, ...  Read More

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...  Read More
