Sometimes God Needs To ‘Prune’ Our Lives

by PGBC

I realized today that this May will be three years since my daughter graduated from college. It doesn’t seem like it could possibly be true, but it is. Consequently, it is also true that May will be three years since Janice had her thyroid removed. Before this happened, I had no idea all that the […]

Why are you a Christian?

by PGBC

How would you respond to that question? If that came from a lost person it would be very beneficial to their eternity if you could give more than, “Well I grew up in a Christian home.” Or “I just always have been.” Peter reminds us that we should be able to give a defense, a […]

Choosing To Know God More

by PGBC

Some people like vintage more than new.  If you had the choice between a vintage car, like a 1968 Camaro SS or a brand-new Camaro SS, what would you be more inclined to choose?  If you had the choice between a 100-year-old house with lots of “character” or a brand-new house full of warranties, what […]

by PGBC

As I sit in my office and think back over 52 Christmas Days I am trying to think of memorable gifts along the way. I honestly had to struggle to think about some that I remember from childhood. I remember disappointment one Christmas morning when I was sure that I was going to get a […]

Life is too short to waste time on things that don’t impact eternity

by PGBC

As I write this article I am sitting at my mother’s bedside as she spends her last moments on this earth.  I am so grateful to know that she placed her faith in Christ as a young girl and truly sought to live a Christian life. My mother was not perfect, but she always sought […]

Where Is Your Focus?

by PGBC

Growing up in Augusta, some time during my teenage years the Augusta Mall started doing a big July 4th fireworks celebration. It quickly became very popular with one of the local radio stations broadcasting music that was meant to coincide with the fireworks. I can remember being in several different locations to watch the fireworks. […]

Spiritual Markers

by PGBC

In the Old Testament we see numerous times when the people of God would set up altars or markers to remember something God had done. God spoke to Jacob and told him what He was going to do in his life in Genesis 35. CSB17 Genesis 35:11 God also said to him, “I am God […]
