• COLUMN: Behold the dangers of 'ditto'

     How many times have you heard, “I have said that before.” (Maybe accompanied by, “Do you hear well?”)

    Then there is the more disparaging, “I’ve heard that before .…”

    Faith community people believe in the power of ditto, too. We have one and three year cycles of repeating valuable scripture passages. Same words – but we are different in some ways each time around?

  • Column: Christ is our calm in the storm

     He [Jesus] got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be Still!”  Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.  Mark 4:39

    Dark clouds on the horizon signify another line of thunderstorms marching in from the West. The calm before the storm gives no indication of danger, but in a matter of minutes the winds can increase, hail can rain down and fierce lightning can strike.

  • COLUMN: Run the race for Christ

     The Apostle Paul ran a race for the Lord Jesus Christ. He explained to the Philippians (3:10-16) some of the things involved in his race.

    First, he said, “I must know Him.”

  • COLUMN: You're saved or not – no in-between

     I was told recently that I am a conservative concerning scriptures. I have to agree, I am. 

    The way I perceive things is there is a right way and a wrong way: no in-between. In other words, “You can't straddle a fence.” I believe the scriptures say just what they mean and is God speaking to us through his word.

    I believe you are saved or you are not saved. There is no place for “I hope

    I am, I believe or I think I am.” You will know.

  • COLUMN: Your works can be traced by your fingerprints

     We recently had the privilege of keeping our 15 month old grandson, Ty, for a week while his parents were on a mission trip. What a joy to have days and days with this sweet little one.

    After we returned home after delivering him back to his anxious parents, I was cleaning the house and noticed multiple fingerprints and smudges all over the place. Between Ty and his cousins, Layla and Bridgett, every section of my house had been explored and traces of their paths were left everywhere.  

  • COLUMN: Be imitators of Christ

     Paul tells the Corinthian Christians, "Be an imitator of me as I am an imitator of Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1). He was trying to give the people a visual example of how to live the Christian life but not putting himself on a pedestal saying that he was perfect and had arrived.

    Paul realized that the greatest motivational principle in the world is a good example. In communication we are taught that 89 percent of what we learn is through the eyes.
