The Prayer Sandwich

  The Prayer Sandwich By Dewey Compton What if I told you there was a sandwich that is so delicious you can eat it every day, and it never gets old, stale, or moldy. In fact, it gets newer, fresher, and tastier each day. I call it the prayer sandwich. What if I told you it is God’s will for you to eat it. It comes from one of my favorite verses. I have it on the wall in my living room and every morning, I stare at it. I meditate on it. Then I read it and eat it. It is crazy how certain days it tastes very different than other days. Nonetheless, it’s always satisfying. I’ll try my best to describe what it means to eat it. But you will just have to try it for yourself to truly experience how satisfying it is. Oh and another thing, it has changed the way I pray as well. It’s a short, simple little verse, but very powerful. OK, here it is: “Rejoice always,  pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances;  for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:16-18 Let'

The King and His Sons

  The King and His Sons Written by Dewey Compton “ Then Jesus said to them, “If you can’t understand the meaning of this parable, how will you understand all the other parables?” Mark 4:13 Once upon a time, there was a wealthy landowner who had lots of lands.

At harvest time, together, we will see how much each of you has produced.” The farmers were excited. They couldn’t believe the King would give them this land and a home to make their dreams come true. It was hard for them to believe somebody would do this for them.  The first farmer was a great thinker. “Why are you doing this?

Our Funeral Celebration

Our Funeral Celebration  Have you ever struggled in an area and said, “I will never get victory over this.” Is it something you’ve battled with for so long, it feels a part of who you are? Well, I have too. In fact, I struggled for many years in a besetting area thinking I would take it to the grave with me. But the scriptures show us Jesus did that for us. Our sins and our nature to sin are already in the grave. Jesus took them with Him and buried them for me and for you when He died. So don’t you think it’s time we have a funeral celebration for our old dead self once and for all? Hear what Paul says: “We have died to sin once and for all, as a dead man passes away from this life. So how could we live under sin’s rule a moment longer? Sharing in his death by our baptism means that we were co-buried and entombed with him, so that when the Father’s glory raised Christ from the dead, we were also raise d with him. We have been co-resurrected with him so that we could be empowered to wal
