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)

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.

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.

Find forgiveness

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.

Actions speak louder than words

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."

Everyone can be adopted in God's family

The world is full of people wanting to know, "What is in it for me?" This attitude keeps many from ever checking out God's word and obeying the Gospel. They see no benefit coming their way, so why bother with religion?

We should look back to go forward

I was moved recently after reading an article titled "Down Blige Road" in Richmond Hill Reflections magazine. As "transplanted" African-Americans here in Richmond Hill, it helped us understand and get more insight into the pasts of other African-Americans who lived in, worked in and built this community.

Don't wait until 'someday' to follow God

Life is but for a little while. James wrote, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away" (James 4:14). What a great reminder of life's brevity, as it can be seen many times during a year.

Gardening teaches to lean on God

As I usually do, earlier this year I planted a little vegetable garden. It's not too elaborate, but it gives me something to enjoy and provides us with a variety of wonderfully fresh things to eat.
