Madison County businesses are stepping up in different ways to serve in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • DUNCAN/Pray for preachers
    Please turn to Hebrews 13:18-19. This is a passage about prayer and it is one of the passages in the New Testament in which pastors ask their people to pray for them. There is much more in the New Testament about what pastors pray for their people. We know that Jesus is the supreme intercessor, both here and above, and the Bible records much about what He prayed for you and me. But there is also significant New Testament attestation to prayer requests from pastors to their people for themselves. And this is one of those passages where a shepherd says to the flock,
  • JORDAN/FAMILY & HOME | Being made for relationship
    Amid the COVID restrictions and guidelines, many families are trying to navigate children home from school, activities canceled, and working from home. 
  • DUNCAN/Obey your leaders
    Please turn to Hebrews 13:17. The one great point of this passage is that our submission in the Christian life is important for our wellbeing and for the wellbeing of others.
  • In this verse we see that God allows Satan to test Job. Job was unaware of the conversation between the Lord and Satan; unaware that the devil is on his way. It is a terrible thing to be under the assault of the devil. He is like the worst criminal waiting in a dark alley to attack his victim. 
  • DUNCAN/Let us go to Jesus
    Please turn to Hebrews 13:8-14. This whole chapter is filled with exhortations about living the Christian life. However, all of these exhortations that he is giving in this chapter, as Biblical as they are and as practical as they are, will avail nothing in the Christian life if our faith and hope are not ultimately placed in Jesus. Unless we are looking to Him, none of these exhorta
    In this passage we see the veil pulled back from the spiritual arena, and we are given a window into God’s court. The surprising thing is that the evil angel Satan appears before the Lord (verse 6). Satan is a powerful spirit who rebelled against God, and who wars against God’s people. In other places in Scripture, he is called the prince of the power of the air, the god of this age, the great dragon, and a roaring lion seeking whom he might devour.
  • After Joe Biden’s blowout victory in South Carolina Saturday and the swift withdrawal of Tom Steyer, “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the decisive day of the race for the Democratic nomination, Super Tuesday, is at hand. 
  • GUEST COLUMN/Landfill still a threat
    We are a small part of the grassroots opposition to NCL Waste Inc.’s proposed 89-acre landfill in Madison County. Unlike the proponents of NCL’s landfill, we are not getting paid by anyone. We are fighting for the people rather than a big garbage company.
  • We were instant friends, Mark Houston and I. Friends at first sight, you might say. That seems as uncanny today as it did back then, 17 years ago. Though we were both well into adulthood, we often remarked to others, and to ourselves, that it seemed like we had known each other all our lives. That’s how it was with Mark and me. Rather than uncanny, though, we both came to believe that our instant friendship was the work of a Higher Power. 
  • DUNCAN/Remember those who led you
    Please turn to Hebrews 13:7. The author of Hebrews is telling us in this verse how to finish the Christian life well. Throughout this letter, the author exhorts his readers to keep believing that Jesus is better than anything else and persevere in the faith. And the older you get in the Christian life, the more that exhortation makes sense because the Christian life does not necessarily get easier as you mature. New challenges arise that you have never encountered before
