Just Do It!

I had a great day on Sunday.... the crowd was a little thin and I was disappointed in that far too few heard the message. However, I was called to preach... God never did let me in on whether it would be to many or a few, He just said preach. So like a farmer I go out each Sunday morning and scatter the seed. I pray it lands on good soil.

This past Sunday's message was both simple and profound. It was basically about obedience.

I concluded with the fact that although the Roman Catholic Church has set the Virgin Mary in a high and lofty place, they neglect the one and only command she ever gave. They’d do well to heed John 2:5 Jesus’ mother said, Whatever he tells you to do, do it.


Luke 6:46-49 Why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to me, and hears my sayings and does them, I will show you to who he is like: He is like a man which built a house, digging deep and laying the foundation on a rock: and when the flood waters rose the stream beat violently against that house, but didn’t shake it: because it was built on a rock. Jesus went on to say, he that hears my word and does not do it, is like a man built a house without a foundation, the flood stream beat against that house, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

John 15:14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command

Let’s go back to the basics…. Mark 12:30-31 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. The second is, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There’s no other commandment greater.

Count Down To Easter

Good day! I trust that you are being challenged by the Word of the Lord. Please note that updates have been made to the Sword & Trowel as well as the Wooden Pulpit.

I have been asked to preach at the joint Good Friday service for Osoyoos. I am scared, not scared of preaching, rather at what I am feeling led to preach about. I am impressed in my spirit to preach regarding who the enemies of the cross of Christ are.

It is certainly not your typical sermon. In fact it is a stark naked warning to the church. It seems strange to feel a call to preach salvation to christians. Anyway, I will post that message early next week. In the days ahead, may the Lord manifest His quiet presence to you. Take some time this Easter week-end to give the heavens above a glance or two. Bless ya - Ed
