Quality of Worship
Authored by boomervet on Tue, Nov 01 2005 - 10:22 AM
If you were to give your worship a quality check what kind of grade would it receive? I am afraid that many of us might receive a failing grade. A.W. Tozer recognized this problem with Christians a has a suggestion for us:"The quality of our worship is enhanced as we move away from a thought of what God has done for us, and move nearer the ...Read Blog »
When Things Go Bad!
Authored by boomervet on Sun, Oct 30 2005 - 09:11 AM
What do we do when things go bad? We rejoice in the Lord! Since my last post I have had a lot to rejoice over. First, my father had to have emergency surgery on an anurism around his intestines. He is fine now and is at home. Praise God for an answered prayer.Second, my new computer, only three months old, died and I had to ship it back to the ...Read Blog »
An Issue of Faith
Authored by boomervet on Thu, Oct 20 2005 - 11:12 AM
I believe one of the hardest things for us as believers to get a handle on is the difference between faith and works. The easiest way I have found to differentiate between the two is this: if what I am doing for the Lord I am doing out of a sense of obligation or duty to Him because He is God, then it is works; if what I am doing for Him I am ...Read Blog »
What is Faith?
Authored by boomervet on Tue, Oct 18 2005 - 08:41 AM
Yesterday I was asked this question, "Pastor, what does faith really mean?" The best answer I can give is found in Hebrews 11:1, Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.In this verse we see a two-part definition. The first part is the assurance of things hoped for. Faith and hope go together like ...Read Blog »
Is Life Against Me?
Authored by boomervet on Wed, Oct 19 2005 - 01:14 PM
Sometimes I find myself thinking about Jacob's remark when his sons returned from their first trip to Egypt. Things were not going very well. Jacob had lost Joseph, probably dead, or at least he thought. Now Simeon was being held in Egypt as some sort of security. And, even worse, the ruler in Egypt said that on the next trip they were to bring ...Read Blog »
Are You A Bible Window-Shopper?
Authored by boomervet on Wed, Oct 12 2005 - 06:35 PM
We can see them all through the mall, those people who move along fondly gazing into each stores display window, but not entering to buy anything. In the realm of the spiritual, we have the Bible window-shoppers. These are people who fondly gaze through each book reading the precious promises contained within, hearing its call for a deeper ...Read Blog »
What a fantastic Week!
Authored by boomervet on Mon, Oct 10 2005 - 08:02 AM
I haven't been able to post for about the last week because we were having our On Missions Celebration and had eleven missionaries from around the world join us. This was the first for our association here in Hawaii. I have been involved in these types of events in the mainland, so I was asked to organize it. Since last Tuesday I have been the ...Read Blog »
Staying On Course

Monday and Tuesday were very busy days for me. This week our association is hosting a missions conference and I have been trying to ensure everything is in place for the arrival of our 10 missionaries. I have always enjoyed missions conferences because I love to hear about the work of God going on around the world.The process of putting together a ...Read Blog »

The other day I was approached by a Christian who asked me, "Why couldn't God just make us all mature in the faith the moment we believe? Why do we have to go through all the valleys?" God moves each of us along step-by-step in the process of spiritual maturity. Sometimes we may look back with shame or embarrassment at things we have ...Read Blog »
Our True Father
Authored by boomervet on Fri, Sep 30 2005 - 08:29 AM
In my last post I stated that one of the goals in my life was to become the kind of father my dad is and to make him proud. That is a good goal, but should I not have the same kind of goal when it comes to my heavenly Father?All too often this is something I have a tendency to forget, but I do not believe I am the only Christian who does. It is a ...Read Blog »

He is the one who taught me what it means to respect all people regardless of the skin color or nationality. He also taught me the definition of ...Read Blog »

I have not posted yet today because early this morning I received a telephone call from my mother to inform me that my father had an artery around the large intestine rupture and was having emergency surgery. The doctor told my mother to gather the family because this was going to be a difficult surgery. I called our Minister of Worship to ask her ...Read Blog »

The Ten Commandments
Authored by admin on Mon, Oct 10 2005 - 07:36 PM
The 10 Commandments are found in the Bible's Old Testament at Exodus, Chapter 20. They were given directly by God to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them from slavery in Egypt: "And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God…ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.' TWO: 'You shall not make for ...Read Blog »

Our church had family camp this weekend and what a great time of fun and fellowship. It was also a time of relaxtion and reflection.

Calming the Storm
Authored by boomervet on Thu, Sep 22 2005 - 08:42 AM
We are just beginning to recover from one hurricane and are now facing another. Again, some are asking the question, "How could a loving God allow such destruction to happen not just once, but now, maybe, twice?"In the fallen world in which we live, the unexpected does often happen. There will be both good times and bad. The question we ...Read Blog »

Today is going to be another one of those sad days for me; my daughter goes back to the Enterprise this afternoon. The time with her has been a time for building new memories that I can reflect on during those lonely periods during the day. Ooops! I slipt. Pastors aren't supposed to have lonely times, or are they? I can tell you there are those ...Read Blog »

Spending Time With God

Well, what a great day I had playing golf with my daughter. We are both just learning to play the game and it was a great time of fun. I will always remember that day. It is so very hard to describe the feeling I had while we were playing and talking. Afterwards, as I was reflecting on our fun together, I heared God say to me, "That's how I ...Read Blog »
