  • Rejoice in Salvation

    Recently, I heard a story of a church where an individual became a new believer. The excitement of the decision overtook the new follower of Christ and the individual shared Jesus with everyone he came in contact with.

During the conversation, an individual who had been a member of the church for many years simply said, “Just give it a few weeks until he gets over his salvation.”

  • Why everybody needs Jesus

    Man’s greatest need is not money, power, or fame , but the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the one friend everybody needs because of our past, our present and our future. In the past we have sinned --- many times and in many ways. Something needs to be done about those sins, but we are helpless and hopeless. The hymn writer says, “There is a fountain filled with blood ... and sinners plunged beneath that flood, and lose all their guilty stains.”

    Thought for the week: One needs different people in their life. A harbor in which to seek shelter against the storm, or simply to pay a visit because it is such a beautiful day.

    Ole man weather can’t make up his mind. I sure wish he would go to sleep and quit having these snow storms. I literally hate snow.

  • Ramblings about gun control

    I have been thinking about writing my column on several topics the last couple of weeks, but I never built up the courage to do it, until now.
