• God's Love and Plan

    Do I really believe that God loves me and has a plan for me?  Most would probably answer in the affirmative. Let’s separate the two thoughts and see what answers we find.

    How do we know God loves us?  God’s Word is our source for this answer.  His Word declares in Jeremiah 31:3, “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.  With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself.”  Now if God says it, that settles it.  He does not say what He does not mean and He does not go back on His Word.

  • Crossover moment, becoming a Christian

    I love a good conversion story. The moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.

    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • The World’s Greatest Need

    “What the world needs now is love.”  This song was sung for the first time in 1965.  The world’s need has not changed.  Look at what is happening in our land today.  Have you ever seen so much hatred being expressed!

  • Be All That You Can Be

    Back in 1981 the army had the jingle “Be all that you can be.” Their target was young men and they were seeking to appeal to the pride of these young men.

    The army may have just recently used this jingle, but God has for a long time appealed not just to young men, but for all of us “to be all we can be.”  God’s desires for us are greater than any desires we may have for ourselves.

  • Attributes of A Winner

    The countdown is on much to the chagrin of many wives. Major League Baseball Playoffs will eventually lead to the American and National league champions playing for the World Series title.

    Recently my wife and I were in a group of 42 people on a Koinonia bus tour where we spent some time in Cooperstown at the Baseball Hall of Fame. I enjoyed seeing plaques of all those who had been selected for the honor to be included among the best of the best.

  • ‘Bless me, Father, for I have sinned’

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a signboard out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.

    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.

    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?

    When I was around seven-years-old, I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers as well as disobeying my parents.
