  • God’s Grace is Glorious

    I love a good story. Recently I read one that meets all the qualifications for me. The late Vance Havner was a Baptist evangelist and he related the following story told to him by a friend.

    Dr. Clyde Turner pastored a church in Kentucky. A young boy in his church was a holy terror that no one could handle. The boy stopped coming to church and Dr. Turner said he nor anyone else rushed to persuade the youth to return.

  • The ‘tocayo’ of Christ 

    In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack.

    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren.

    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron. Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name.

    Got all that?

  • Where is the fruit?

    A few years ago a television commercial that received a lot of playing time asked the question, “Where’s the beef?” The question in the Gospel of Luke about the barren tree was, “Where’s the fruit?” The owner of the vineyard came looking for three years, but found no fruit.

    The owner in the story represents God. The fig tree could apply to Israel, but there is a personal application where we are the tree. The owner planted, watered, dressed and fertilized the tree. No labor was spared on the tree.

  • Choo-choosing to unhitch from the crazy train

    Just this morning my friend Tara and I were wondering if it’s possible to be addicted to drama.

    She calls it being on the crazy train. She said when the crazy train comes around and she hitches a ride on it she’s firing on all cylinders, she’s in high gear and overdrive, not to mention mixing metaphors.

    She feels alive, she says, yet at the same time she hates it with all her might.

  • Being under the Blood

    “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). Without blood there cannot be life in the physical body. This is also true in the Bible. Blood flows through the Bible just as it does through the veins of our body. The late W. A. Criswell authored many books, one of which was titled, The Scarlet Thread. He shows how the thread that ran from Genesis to Revelation was the blood of Jesus.

  • A Threat to Our Nation

    Our nation seems to be falling apart.  At least, that is one man’s opinion.  And our greatest threat is not from beyond our borders, but within our own land.  Someone wrote an article entitled, “Without A  Shot”, showing how other great nations of the past have fallen from within.  We are imploding.

    America was once feared and respected in the world.  What has happened?  How are we viewed today?
