Useful Body Parts

For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. From the creation of the world His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine […]

The Value of Problems

Rust will cause metal to crumble. Hammer blows harden it. Slackness or laziness regarding your spiritual life will cause it to grow cold or weary or dead. Avoiding trouble rather than overcoming it can cripple you spiritually or emotionally. Spiritual struggles and attacks will cause you to gain strength if your response to them is […]

God’s Astonishing Voice

Our God – our Father – spoke blazing words that became suns and stars and galaxies. His voice made us able to believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No sound could be more precious. The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth and strips the woodlands bare. In […]

Hiding Like Jonah

I am convinced that much of the anti-Christ attitudes and practices that are taking charge of the United States have been a storm that Yahweh has pitched against the nation to wake up His people who are hiding and asleep in the low places rather than speaking for Him in the high places of authority […]

Grace for the Humbled

Jacob could not be blessed with the change of his identity from Jacob (“Usurper”) to Israel (“Prince of God”) until his hip was displaced and he walked with a terrible limp.

The word “mediocre” came from a word that originally meant “halfway to the peak.” Mediocrity is tolerable if I am in junior high school. If it is time to graduate from high school, only being halfway up the mountain is bad. One of the words Jesus sent to one of the churches He spoke to […]

Knowing the Truth

“Lord,” Thomas said, “we don’t know where You’re going. How can we know the way?” Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you know Me, you will also know My Father. From now on you do know Him and have […]

None of Self and All of Thee

None of Self and All of Thee                           Theodore Monod (1836-1921) Oh, the bitter pain and sorrow, That a time could ever be, When I proudly said to Jesus, “All of self and none of Thee.” Yet He found me; I beheld Him […]

Travel Brochures

Hotels, rest stops and some gas stations have racks of brochures describing local areas of interest to tourists. Even though the brochures are produced by the owners or managers of the destinations, some contain accurate details, while others are just hype designed to lure people into the trap and out of some money. Much of […]
