  • COLUMN: Life can be confusing

    A student was asked what the large letter K stood for on the front of his T-shirt.

    The student said, “Confused.”

    The man replied, “But that is not how you spell confused.” 

    “Man,” the student exclaimed, “you don’t know how confused I am.”

    Life can be confusing and we wonder what is going on. To add to the confusion, many unexpected things can come along to upset the apple cart. What can we do?  How can we endure?

  • COLUMN: God's word is sharper than a knife

     Recently I attended a meeting in which Dr. Woodrow Kroll was speaker. In the past you may have heard him on the radio program “Back to the Bible,” where he taught the Bible daily for 23 years. I came away from that meeting with a renewed commitment to sharing God’s word as he gives opportunities because without his word, all is to no avail.

    Billy Graham always said, “The Bible says ….” There is a great need today for God’s word.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Are we true disciples?

    Is Jesus our personal savior? Do we honestly know him, or just know about him? 

    Do we take time each day to study his word and talk with him, or is it only one day a week we pick up our Bible? Who are we fooling?

  • COLUMN: Keep looking up

    Where you put your eyes is very important. Paul in Colossians 3:1-11 urges us to “Set our mind on things above.” Stop for a few minutes to read this passage of scripture. Paul tells us to look up, look out, look in and look around.

    Colossians, Ephesians and Romans all follow the same pattern. Paul deals with doctrines and then moves to duties. He does not want us to be like the people in Titus 1:16, “They claim they know God, but by their actions they deny Him.”
