Hymn: Great is Thy Faithfulness

A friend recently sent me a Christian song that I never heard before. It was good. An old hymn was next on the list, Great is Thy Faithfulness. That particular day I needed to hear the words of that song. The author wrote it from the words of Jeremiah in the book of Lamentations; “Through the Lord’sContinue reading “Hymn: Great is Thy Faithfulness”

Danger on the High Seas

After my brother and I moved out of the house, my dad bought a boat.  My brother used it for water skiing and I used it for fishing. On one of the fishing trips my two boys, their two friends, and a friend of mine were fishing a fairly large lake. The kids were young;Continue reading “Danger on the High Seas”

The Greatest Cold Case of All

I believe it was C.S. Lewis that suggested the following three possiblilities about Jesus: “He either was Lord, a liar, or a lunatic”.  Jesus claimed to be the Lord God. He said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father”. (John 14:9).  He claimed to be “I AM’, a reference to God in ExodusContinue reading “The Greatest Cold Case of All”

No Resurrection; No Hope

“From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day” (Matthew 16:21). The death of Jesus Christ on the cross and His bodily resurrection is the event thatContinue reading “No Resurrection; No Hope”

The Release of a Murderer

Barabbas sat in prison. He was notorious for rebellion and murder in the city of Jerusalem (Luke 23:25). He waited for the day of his crucifixion for his crimes. His sentence was just. The day had come. He would be nailed to a cross in the middle of two other crosses; prepared for two otherContinue reading “The Release of a Murderer”

Pray

Many of the people I know are praying. One person’s prayer can have great impact. But it must be done in faith. “And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up” (James 5:15). This does not mean that everyone will get healed. For all prayer is answered accordingContinue reading “Pray”

Water is Life!

Recently a friend of mine sent me a devotional. It told of a fellow who worked on a construction crew that built new houses. He connected the water lines to new homes. When they turned on the water, “a once quiet house suddenly seemed alive”. He said, “It amazed me that the house could transformContinue reading “Water is Life!”

Bad Apples

Anyone managing people knows that it’s not an easy thing to do well. I had the blessing of managing for 27 years of my life, although I did not always see it as a blessing at times. God taught me much over those years about myself and about others. Most of the people did theirContinue reading “Bad Apples”
