In 1 Timothy 4:12 the Apostle Paul tells Timothy, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers..."

Remember the meaning of Easter, 'Jesus is alive'

It is the day before Easter. Think what it must have been like almost 2000 years ago on that day – before the first Easter.

The will, seen in Father and Son

Jesus freely chose to die. No wonder that a current internet site asks rhetorically if He were not complicit in His own death?

There is a standard in religion (part 2)

Last week we saw the need for a standard to be followed in religion. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (II Tim. 3:16,17). Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (II Peter 1:20,21).

What is truth?

In the book of John before Jesus was crucified he had been sent to Pilate, the Roman governor. This Pilate had the responsibility of either releasing Jesus or handing him over to be crucified. Jesus told Pilate that he had came into the world to testify to the truth and that everyone on the side of truth listens to him. At this Pilate asked this aged old question, "What is truth?"

There is a standard, part 1

While doing some mission work on the Island of Grenada some years back, I was asked by a gentleman, "Why there are so many different beliefs in the world?" That was and is a good question.

No to alcohol on Sundays, and every day in between

There has been a lot of debate recently concerning the topic of alcohol, especially the change of the law regarding the selling of it on Sunday in restaurants. I do not see a difference between serving it on Sunday verses on Monday, Tuesday etc.

Is there a God? (part 2)

Last week I posed two questions: Is there a God?, and If so, what is He like?

Know God

There was a little girl busy at work, surrounded by crayons, markers and paper. When her mom asked what she was doing she said, "I'm drawing a picture of God." Her mom replied, "But, sweetheart, no one knows what God looks like." Quickly the little one responded, "That's because I haven't finished my picture yet."

A tribute to Jimmy Burnsed

We read in the scripture where Jesus confronted people and asked them to become His followers and there were some who did. He exemplified what it meant to be obedient to God the Father. His disciples were to do the same as well as follow Him in His mission to bring salvation to the lost.

Are we forgiving servants? (2)

Last week we looked at a parable Jesus used to teach about forgiveness. The unforgiving servant was delivered to the tormentors. Jesus said, "So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses" (Matt. 18:35).

Reflections after the passing of a good friend

The word came to us last weekend. A good friend, 47-years-old, died of cancer. My wife, Tina, had worked closely with Brenda to start a weekday preschool program in our church in Indiana. Brenda had become director when we moved. We visited the church last June, and Brenda gave Tina a tour of the new preschool facilities. They were both so excited.

Diagnosed with eternal life

This last Saturday evening I ended up going to "Urgent One" with a swollen and very sore throat.

Are we forgiving servants? (1)

We need to thank God for the fact that Jesus came to earth, died at Calvary and rose again the third day. Without the blood of Christ no man could be saved from sin.

You have to choose for yourself -- part 1

Most religious people believe that God loves everyone and wants all to be saved. Yet some fail to understand that he created man to have his own will so he can determine what to do or not do.

Count your blessing, thank the Lord

When I was growing up in the church, we used to quite often sing a song called, "Count Your Blessings." It goes something like this: "Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God hath done."

God creates the wonder in everything

I have a new computer. It is a laptop and literally is the size of the leather binder I carry in my book satchel. It is only a pound or so in weight.

Chose God over things of this world

When Elijah the prophet called for Ahab to gather all Israel to Mount Carmel, he started his address with the following words: "How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him. But if Baal, then follow him" (1 Kings 18:21).

Live life with a pure heart

We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related. There is a person who is never quite understood. There is a person who is often rejected on the basis of trust. A pure heart often leads the bearer to be alone, even among thousands.
