Don’t Worry!

Don’t Worry!

In the days we live in, it is all too easy to slip into fear. All you have to do is turn on the news. Listening to many nightly newscasts will make one think that all is lost.  And I hesitate to even call most of it news.  The news used to be based on… Read More ›

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

This Sunday, we will be honoring, celebrating and remembering our dads.  For me, the day comes with a lot of wonderful memories.  But that’s not so for everyone. A relative once said that he was never going to have children because he didn’t want to be the kind of father to his children that his… Read More ›

There Is Therefore Now No Condemnation!

There Is Therefore Now No Condemnation!

“Expression of unfavorable judgment; indication of strong disapproval; pronounce as guilty; judging to be unfit for use or service.”  These definitions don’t exactly invoke that warm fuzzy feeling.  They are all definitions of the same word.  Can you guess it?  The word is condemnation.  Have you ever had someone throw condemnation on you? No one… Read More ›

Put On Love!

Put On Love!

Scripture tells us that the absolute greatest gift there is is love.  But these days, it seems you don’t see much love being spread around, especially if you watch TV and the news.  Demeaning insults and remarks are the norm and it would seem our newscasters, politicians and late-night TV hosts try to outdo each… Read More ›

If you don’t know… Read More ›

Take As Directed

If you are a Christian and attend a church that boldly preaches the Word of God, then you have heard this over and over again – “You gotta read the word!”  And about now you might be thinking “oh no, not again”, but there is just no getting around it if you desire to please… Read More ›

What A Ride!

What A Ride!

Mother’s Day is a wonderful occasion.  It’s a time for each of us to honor and remember our mother and the huge influence she has been in our life.  And, as a mom, memories and thoughts come flooding back to us as we reflect over the years.  If we are truthful, we would say that… Read More ›

O Wretched Man!

O Wretched Man!

“O wretched man that I am.  Who will deliver me from this body of death”!  This was the apostle Paul’s exclamation in Romans 7:24.  Paul was teaching about wanting to do what is good and right yet not doing it and knowing what is wrong but doing it anyway.  How many times have you found… Read More ›

Which Robber are You?

Scripture tells us that Jesus was crucified along with two criminals.  And we know that one of these men ultimately realized that Jesus truly was the son of God by addressing Him as Lord and asking Jesus to remember him when He entered His kingdom, while the other man mocked him along with the soldiers. … Read More ›

No Greater Love!

No Greater Love!

This Sunday we celebrate what is certainly the most significant event in Christian history – The Resurrection of Jesus Christ!  Jesus’ victory over death was our victory! But Jesus paid a horrific price for that victory.  During the hours leading up to and including His crucifixion, Jesus experienced mind numbing torture, ridicule and abandonment.  And… Read More ›
