When we are in a personal crisis we often cry out to the Lord. When you are needy, and have no one to help, what else can you do? Needy people, who call upon him, are precisely those whom God helps. The Lord can help you with temporal concerns and supply the spiritual necessities you require to sustain you in difficulty. Your cry is not unheard. more

My wife and I have been residents of Madison County since 1979 and have watched Madison County grow into one of the most desirable places to live in Mississippi. Long before Madison County began its exponential growth, I knew that we had found a special place to live and raise our family. As far back as 1979, several of our highly traveled roads today were just dirt roads then. more
This passage exhorts us to compare the living, true God to the idols we form in our hearts. All men are idolaters; it is the root of all sin to form God in our own image. And all men are inescapably religious; they worship the true God, (as he has revealed himself), or elevate themselves to that position, choosing for themselves what is good to worship in their own eyes. more

In these verses, Isaiah is addressing the propensity in men to look everywhere but God to sustain and bless their lives.

Please turn to 1 Timothy 4:11-16. In this passage, Paul has some very personal words regarding the Christian ministry for the young pastor Timothy. However, this passage is not only applicable to Timothy, it applies to all Christians. In verses 11-16, Paul says that there are certain things that are central to the ministry of the church. And as Christians, we should long for the local church to be like Paul says it ought to be in this passage. Paul also tells Timothy to live in accordance with the Word of God in order to be an example to the flock. If Timothy is to do certain things in order to be an example to us then we should also follow the example set forth in Scripture. And even though these words are spoken to a minister, they are applicable to every Christian. Thus, Paul gives us six words so that we will know what a faithful minister looks like, what a faithful church looks like, and so that we ourselves will grow in grace, in doctrine, and in life.  more
