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.

God always offers second chances

I was only in the house for two or three minutes. But by the time I returned to my back porch flames and smoke were pouring from the grill. The house was never in any danger. But the steaks were ruined. Burned to a crisp. Even the dog looked the other way.

Sunday evening my wife and I watched a movie titled The Russell Girl. This was a Hallmark movie about a girl who went back to her hometown because she was sick with leukemia.

For sale: A lying mirror

Nobody enjoys privacy more than Yours Truly. I confess I am not a very happy camper when that privacy is compromised in any fashion. Recently, I endured a tremendous trespass on my privacy.

Seek comfort from God, part 2

Job stands out as one who, in the face of trials, remained faithful to God. He lost most of his possessions, all his children were killed, his so-called friends tormented them with their ideas of what his problem was, even his wife told him to curse God and die.

He is not silent; we are not listening

Yesterday was my wife's birthday. I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but I do know a few things. I most certainly will not reveal to you her age. And at some point over this weekend I will either take her to dinner, or will cook myself, and I will also give a small gift of some kind. In other words, we will celebrate, but there won't be large amounts of fanfare.

We must never be satisfied with who we are

There is a tension in every life, and it is only exaggerated if you are a Christian. That tension has to do with satisfaction in life. God calls us to be "content" or satisfied with our circumstance in life. And yet He never wants us to be satisfied to be who we are right now. There is the constant call to grow, to become more, to be His disciple.

Make the most of every opportunity you get

In the book of Ephesians, chapter 5 and verse 16, it which tells us to "make the most of every opportunity." When we think of this verse we usually apply it to sharing of our faith, which is a valid application. However I think it goes far beyond this application.

He is faithful

I started playing baseball when I was 6 years old. Actually I played with my dad even before that, but when I was 6 I had the privilege of playing in the first T-ball league in the Atlanta area. What fun it was. I played baseball all the way through high school, and played softball for many years after that.

Things we can and can't do about 2007

Believe it or not, 2007 is over and we need to start remembering to write 2008 on all our important things that require a date.

You can try, but you cannot ignore God

One of the sayings of the day is, "Just get away from it all." Normally some vacation spot is trying to entice us to come and pay them a visit. On occasion it is good to get away, but sadly some try to get away from God.
