Communication, Punctuation, and Attitude!
Solomon stated: “ A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in setting of silver” (Prov. 25:11).  Your speech can deeply and sweetly enrich others.  Yet, Solomon adds Proverbs 18:7: “A fools mouth is his destruction and his lips are a snare to his soul.”  James even warns that “out of the mouth comes forth blessing and cursing,” adding, “... read all »
Nike in the News
Jesus had fasted for forty days and nights.  Can you even attempt to imagine how hungry he must have been?  Satan tempted him to command stones to become bread so that he could satisfy his hunger (Matthew 4:1-11).  Jesus could have easily done so.  I also believe it is perfectly reasonable to assume that Jesus wanted to turn the... read all »

Danger!

It's School and Study Time Again
It is sincerely hoped that no one will read the Title and assume it relates to school houses and school teachers. God’s people are students “til death do us part!”  Our culture may segment a year to a “in school” or “out of school” concept, but when Christ gives His precious and exceeding great promises for us to take on the Divine Nature, He enroll... read all »
I Am Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
On a cool, morning recently, I awoke to the sound of my own breathing.  Not snoring (although that has also happened before), this was the normal rhythmic sound of air entering and exiting my lungs.  As I lay there wrapped cozily in my blanket and with my eyes closed, I couldn’t help but think of David’s words in Ps 139:14… I will praise You,... read all »
Invitation
"Someone defiantly will pay for your sins. Will it be you or will it be Jesus." This was the sign I happened on while surfing the internet.  I thought to myself how powerful the message conveyed in such a short sentence.  For those of us who have believe in Christ as our Lord and Savior and have responded, the words are not anything we didn't already know.&... read all »
