Pastor Bob shares how God shows his unfailing love to us and how we are to reflect His love in our relationships, even when it’s not the easiest thing to do.

Mercy-Filled Living

Mercy is not a popular concept.  Jesus received very heavy criticism when he showed mercy during his ministry.  Many people resent those who offer mercy, but mercy is a key to living a life as a follower of Jesus Christ. This Bible study shows how we can live a mercy-filled life as Jesus did.

There’s Something About That Name

There’s Just Something About That Name from PastorBobDouglas on Vimeo.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, we have been together for a very long time. I was introduced to you as a small child. I needed someone who was strong enough to keep the “bad things” away from me. You were my strong Shepherd that kept me safe.

But, I grew stronger and I needed you less. I pushed you away as I became confident enough that I could take care of myself. It was during those years that I only came running back to you when I had failed and I needed your forgiveness and grace. You washed away my guilt and sorrow, and you sent me back to my life to try again!

Jesus, you came to me again when I was so shaken and unsure that I didn’t know where to turn or what to believe. You came to me as Truth and you gave me a Rock, a Corner Stone to believe in. You gave me a Foundation to build my life upon. You have never failed me, even when the storms were blasting all around me like hurricane Andrew. I could rest in you.

You taught me how to love. You changed my heart and you changed my mind. Jesus, you taught me how to teach as you taught. You opened my eyes and let me see Eternity. That changed me forever. You showed me how to reach out and lay my hand on the hurting people and feel your healing touch flow into their lives. You made the stories from long ago come alive in the hearts, in the bodies, in the lives of people who are alive today. And your Truth, your Grace, and your Love came pouring out again.

Jesus, you made me strong; strong enough to stand when those around me would try to destroy everything. Your strong hand was holding me up to face the challenge without becoming like those who were attacking me. Your courage before your attackers showed me how to stand without needing to counter-attack or self-protect. Your cross became my cross, and instead of being something from which to flee, it became my great joy….my greatest prize.

In these last years, you have been my manna in the desert. You have sent your ravens with bread in their mouths, the flour and oil in the vessel, just enough for the day…each day. You have proved yourself faithful again and again.

What does our future hold? I have no idea. But this much I know; I’m not going anywhere without you, Jesus! You have been my constant companion through my entire life. You will walk with me from here on. Of this I am certain.

Pastor Bob’s testimony

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
There’s just something about that name
Master, Savior, Jesus
Like the fragrance after the rain
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let all Heaven and Earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms
Will all pass away
But there’s something about that Name.

Song lyrics and music by Gloria Gaither.
