Never quit trying to live Christian life

The apostle Paul wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:13,14).

God deserves prompt obedience

You can overcome harsh words

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

Learn to always put your trust in God

We are taught in God's word that faith is necessary to be pleasing to God. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Heb 11:6).

There's time to trust in His provisions

The other day I had written down several things I needed to do while I was in town. Since I was in a hurry, I scribbled the things down on a scrap piece of paper.

Something about the pageantry...

I have to make a confession. I love what has been called "the pageantry of college football." I manage to go to a couple of games of my favorite team every year.

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.

The Lord really does know best

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the Earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." - 2 Peter 3:9-10
