  • 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.”

  • Book's message: It's not about you

    You may have heard the old joke of the elderly man who was told that at his age he should be thinking about the “hereafter.” He replied, “I do all the time.  When I go into a room, I stop and ask myself, what am I “here after”?

    Paul advises us, whatever our age, to “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things …“(Colossians 3:2-3). Even though we have to live in this world, we must see the next. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God” (Matthew 6:33).
