“Hug your kids every chance you get. Tell them you love them every chance you get. You don’t know when it’s going to be the last time.” Tony Dungy
“As a Christian, I am under no obligation to attempt to reconcile the Bible’s teachings with modern philosophy. Biblical truth does not parallel human opinion in any generation; it usually opposes it!” Billy Graham
My full name is Clarence Raymond Pritchard. I was named Clarence for my uncle (my father’s older brother). Raymond was my father’s middle name. When our oldest son was born, we named him Joshua Tyrus Pritchard—Joshua for the great Bible hero and Tyrus in honor of my father who was named after Ty Cobb, the […]
“The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win; His erring child He reconciled, And pardoned from his sin.” Frederick Lehman, 1917
“Thou art coming to a King, Large petitions with thee bring; For His grace and power are such, None can ever ask too much.” John Newton
“A soft answer turns away wrath” (Proverbs 15:1). Lord, help me to remember that because I’m sure I’ll need it before this day is done. Amen.
When you stand at the gate of heaven and God says, “Why should I let you in?” what answer will give? “I was a member of Wesley Methodist Church.” Not good enough. “I was an elder at Wayside Chapel.” You’ll be in big trouble. “My father built our church.” That’s good, but it’s not the […]
“When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart. Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, And there proclaim: ‘My God, how great Thou art!'”
You’re not the savior of the world. That position has already been filled.
“Men who really have seen evil things, and fought mightily against them, as a rule have been not only the bravest men, but also the cheeriest and most hopeful men.” Newman Smyth
Live today as if Jesus might come today. One day you’ll be right.
“Come home, come home, You who are weary, come home; Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, Calling, O sinner, come home!”
When God wanted to save the world, he started with a baby in a manger. Small beginnings are no hindrance to the Lord. Go ahead and get started. You never know what God will do.
“We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Christians are, by God’s grace, cockroaches. We can survive anything.” Mark Dever
We need tenacious winsome courage to live for Christ today. Tenacious meaning, “Never give up.” Winsome meaning, “With a smile, not a scowl.” Courage meaning, “Standing strong in hard times.” These are not the best of times, but they are not the worst either. Onward, always onward, by God’s grace, full of faith, with tenacious, […]
“Preach the gospel. Die. Be forgotten.” Count Zinzendorf (1700-1760). Do your part and let God determine your legacy.
“No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the power of Christ in me; From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny. No power of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand: Till He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ […]
Don’t be ashamed to admit you were wrong. It means you have more sense than you had before.
So many people are frozen with fear over what might happen two months down the road. If God could create the world in six days, he can surely handle your problems in September.
True believers have never been popular with the people of the world. Our righteousness intimidates them, our boldness annoys them, our refusal to participate in their sin infuriates them, and our love for God mystifies them.
“Salvation is of the Lord.” All spiritual growth starts right here. The sooner we figure this out, the happier we’ll be.
We are in God’s presence, united with Christ, led by the Spirit, surrounded by angels, enrolled in heaven, accepted by the Father, and forgiven by the blood. Because of Jesus, we live next door to heaven.
“May the love of Jesus fill me, As the waters fill the sea; Him exalting, self abasing, This is victory.”
“When the devil throws our sins up to us and declares we deserve death and hell, we ought to speak thus: ‘I admit that I deserve death and hell. What of it? Does this mean that I shall be sentenced to eternal damnation? By no means. For I know One who suffered and made a […]
