Welcome...

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

Sonrise!

In Malachi 4:2, we find this promise: "The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings."  This is God's irrevocable promise that our Lord Jesus will come again and all creation "will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" (Romans 8:21).

Each new sunrise is a reminder of that eternal morning when "bright heaven's Sun" will arise with healing in His wings.  Then everything that has been made will be made over and made irrevocably right.  There will be no throbbing backs or knees, no financial struggles, no losses, no aging.  In the NIV, the last part of Malachi 4:2 says that when Jesus returns we will "go out and leap like calves released from the stall."  This is our greatest hope.
