Thanks for stopping by.  I'm pastor of First Baptist Church in Dupo, IL.  You can visit the church website for information on the church: www.fbcdupo.org.  Here I hope to share some inspiration and perhaps a few tales from the winding road…this journey called life, where God can be seen in the moments of our day if we are looking for Him.  ~Roger~

Thought for the Day

Even when we don't sense God's presence, His loving care is all around us.

Words to live by...

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.  Let your heart live forever!
Psalm 22:26

Wrapping up the 30 day journey

If you have been joining me on the 30 day worship journey, which has actually taken more than 30 days, you have spent time the past 30+ days contemplating the greatness of our God. What a difference it makes in the day when you start out by worshiping God while focusing on His attributes.

Do you not know?  Have you not heard?  The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:28

On the final day of our journey consider that God is our reality. He is ultimate truth and He holds all things together. This world is not our reality…our true reality is in God’s kingdom. When we truly abide in Christ we dwell in the reality of His kingdom.

“You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right side of God. Keep your minds fixed on things there, not on things here on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Your real life is Christ and when he appears, then you too will appear with him and share his glory!” Colossians 3:1-4
