"Best Day Ever" 04.20.16

"My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory." (James 2:1 ESV) Today is Tuesday. I woke up this morning at about 4:30 am with a pounding headache to the point of nausea. I took some Tylenol and moved to the couch and fell asleep there for a little while and then re-joined my wife in bed. I woke up late and tired becaus...

"Are Works Necessary?" 04.14.16

"Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and ex...

"God's Promise" 04.01.16

"And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised.

"What gain has the worker from his toil? I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end." (Ecclesiastes 3:9-11 ESV) It's never enough. Whether we are talking about a pe...

"Babblers" 03.05.16

"Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers also conversed with him. And some said, 'What does this babbler wish to say?' Others said, 'He seems to be a preacher of foreign divinities'because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection." (Acts 17:18 ESV) I've never had a rock thrown at me for preaching the Gospel, never been shot at, never been threatened with a knife o...

“The Life with Breath” 02.18.16

I have terrible allergies - most of all to cats. When I find myself in the room with a cat, (I try to avoid this like the plague, but sometimes I'm caught off guard) within minutes, my lungs begin to tighten and I have the feeling that 10,000 lbs. of rocks have just been set on my chest.
