The Ascension According to Luke
Theology That Matters
by Timothy
3d ago
Why did Jesus ascend? Why did He have to go away? Would it not have been better, had He sat up an earthly throne so we could go and visit Him every few years? Isn’t that what we want, a King and Savior we can see, we can speak too, we can actually order a McDonald’s Big Mac with Him? I ask that absurd question because once you start down the line asking questions, … without discernment and restraint, thereby questioning Christ’s wisdom in all things, then you end up in the absurd. Yet, it is right to ask: why did Jesus ascend? We ask with reverence because we do trust in His wisdom in ascendi ..read more

40 Days
Theology That Matters
by Timothy
6d ago
If you were given 40 days to live, what would you do? Would you party like there is no tomorrow, until there really was no tomorrow? Or would you spend the last 40 days of your life doing something more substantial, like being with family and friends. If you did the latter, what would you want your family and friends to know? While Jesus wasn’t die, death could no longer bother Him, He did spend 40 days with His disciples before He ascended to the throne to His Father. The following sermons looks at some of the things He did and said to His disciples. He didn’t party. He instructed. He taught ..read more

In Memory of Birthday Girl

It’s hard for me to remember a time when Birthday Girl wasn’t the resident queen of the pasture at the family ranch. I know there was a time when Custer was the king, but he was never as gentle, and loving as Birthday Girl. My sister informed us of her passing today. She was almost 32 years old. Most of the following pictures were taken back in 2013. We will all miss her. All photos are copyright © Timothy J. Hammons 2024.  ..read more

Health Camp Waco

Picked up Joey around 6:30 p.m. on Friday night and headed back down south to Health Camp here in Waco. It’s a burger place that has been around since 1948. They have the best malts, shakes, and burgers around. It’s a legend. By the time we got there, so did everyone else. We waited in line for about 25 minutes, just to place our order. It was worth it.

“I Came to Send Fire”
Theology That Matters
by Timothy
2M ago
My sermon at Waco Reformed Church on March 10, 2024. This morning, we are going to see that His steadfastness goes beyond the cross. He is not just seeking to save us. He is seeking to establish a Kingdom, in which those who are saved are made citizens. In establishing His Kingdom, He is also exercising judgment over all the other kingdoms of man, including Jerusalem. Whenever God brings abundant grace to His people, He also brings abundant judgment to those who reject that grace, and this is what we see in our text. It has eschatological implications, both for those who belong to Him, and th ..read more

“Follow Me.”
Theology That Matters
by Timothy
2M ago
Jesus told many of His disciples to “follow Me.” Like them, we fail to ask where it was that HE was going. He was going to the cross to die. This gives us a real hint of the calling He places upon our lives when He calls us ..read more

Feast of Weeks and Communion Bread
Theology That Matters
by Timothy
3M ago
Communion — A Meditation One of the changes that we made since establishing Waco Reformed Church was to move from unleavened bread, to leavened bread in communion. We did this partly because of the parable of the leaven found in Matthew 13:33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened.” This is a kingdom parable, showing that the kingdom will continue to grow until it is all leavened. We chose to use leavened bread because not only does communion point back to Christ’s death, and helps ..read more
