• Never lose vision

    This past week I had the opportunity to visit the eye doctor for my yearly eye exam. As I entered the office, I easily navigated the corridors that led to the examination room. Upon entering the room, everything changed as I removed my contact lenses. At that moment, my blindness became obvious. I struggled to judge depth and distance of surrounding objects, I could not see any details around me, and what once were obstacles easily avoided became obstacles to fall over.

  • A Word to the Ladies

    Every day is or should be Mother’s Day.  Since that is true, my remarks about mothers, Christian women and the Christian home will not be out of place even though the official Mother’s Day has come and gone for this year.

    All the artillery of hell has been pointed at the home.  The hell-hatched sins of immorality, adultery, abortion and many others inspired by the devil are aimed at the destruction of the family and home.

  • Gender and Godliness

    In between two major United States holidays, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we would be wise to consider these God-assigned and defined roles. We might ask, why does God create us male and female? Why does He describe repeatedly our responsibilities in gender-based terms such as mother, father, husband, wife, son, and daughter?

  • “What Would Jesus Do?”: That is the Wrong Question

    Recently, I listened to a sermon that focused on how to deal with mean people. In it, the one preaching made a passing statement that “What Would Jesus Do?” has been a culturally successful slogan with very little biblical backing. The reality is that you and I cannot do what Jesus does, but rather can only do what Jesus would desire for us to do. Let’s look at the story of Jesus and Peter walking on the water and see what the proper question is.

  • What we are to be and do

    Sometimes you begin with one thing and wind up with so much more.  Last week I shared about the Good Samaritan and how it illustrated three ways of life.  In my study of Luke 10, Warren Weirsbe in his Bible Commentary opened my eyes to far more in the chapter.  Let me urge you to stop reading this and read chapter 10 of Luke now.

  • God Bless America

    As for me and my house we are planning a trip to our state capitol May 4 for a noon-time prayer service of Kentuckians led by Franklin Graham for spiritual renewal in our nation.  Mr. Graham is holding prayer services in each of our 50 state capitals.  It would be wonderful to have thousands at the gathering on May 4.  This will be the day before the National Day of Prayer services held locally and through out the United States.

  • Blessed

    “Bless your heart.” “God bless you.” “May the Lord bless you.” “I am blessed.”

    Have you ever thought about the word “bless”? It really isn’t a common, everyday sort of word. It is a churchy/Bible word. Even though we may use it a lot, primarily among allergy-afflicted sneezers, I am not sure we could easily define the word we are using.
