    Good Works

    For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2 8-10) Scripture is clear, […]

    Do your best!

    I was raised with the principle that if you are going to do something, then do it with all your heart. There is no success in attempting to accomplish a goal without passion or doing it half-heartedly. No life-altering accomplishments, which have benefitted society, were ever achieved by sluggards. Individuals or teams who made significant […]

    Looking Forward

    In my last Blog, Looking Back, I shared how we can look back as we recall what the Lord has done for us in the past. Through looking back at these “Memorial Stones” we are reminded of the marvelous works that He has done, and this encourages us that He can do it again. In […]

    Looking Back

    It seems wrong to even say, “Looking Back!” After all, we are generally instructed to look ahead. There are three instances where we are taught in the Bible not to look back. In spite of these warnings, looking back has some advantages. Here are the three warnings: # 1. Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife. Remember […]

    How Beautiful are the Feet – Part IV

    I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. So, as much as is in me, (2) I am ready to preach the Gospel to you who are in Rome also. For (3) I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

  • How Beautiful are the Feet! – Part I

    How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who […]

  • Don’t Hit Snooze!

    I seldom need an alarm clock to wake me up. I have been graced with an internal alarm clock and typically wake up at whatever time I set my body-clock. I travel over forty weeks a year and will try to be on the first flight out in the morning, so far I have not […]

  • Be Light

    Jesus said that He was the light of the world. His light is indistinguishable, regardless of how dark the world is, the light is more powerful. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. […]
