Then What?

The older you get the faster life seems to go. Even if you live to be a hundred, that’s a blink in comparison to eternity. Years ago I listened to a preacher tell a story about a conversation he had with a high school student. He started by asking the young man what he wasContinue reading “Then What?”

Four Things the O.T. Law Cannot Do

Have you ever seen a sign that said, “Wet Paint Don’t Touch”? What’s the first thing that comes across your mind? If you are honest, I would say that most people think about touching it. How about “Don’t Walk on the Grass!” Makes you want to walk on the grass. We call it human nature.Continue reading “Four Things the O.T. Law Cannot Do”

Are You Eating a Lot of Fast Food?

As we all know we live in a fast paced society.  Everything must be done fast which probably is the reason so many of us lack patience.  It seems that we are in a big hurry to get nowhere. And one of the fastest segments of our society is food.  Fast food wasn’t fast enoughContinue reading “Are You Eating a Lot of Fast Food?”

Memorial Day 2010

Early on Memorial Day 2010 I got one of those calls that we don’t want to get.  I was at work. My wife’s voice on the other end said, “I think your dad died.”  Well as the process of events unraveled over the next couple days you begin to hear the many stories of howContinue reading “Memorial Day 2010”

The Majesty of God’s Creation

This is my second blog in a series about God’s amazing creation. Thanks to a sister in the Lord for the ocean pictures and the amazing butterfly photo. God’s creation is intended to impress us with His magnificence and eternal power (Rom. 1:20). Why do we get a sense of awe from seeing a mountainContinue reading “The Majesty of God’s Creation”

How are You Spending your Time?

I remember walking with a friend at a local park on a beautiful spring day.  A man on a motorcycle rode by us on the entrance road. He promptly made a U-turn and exited the park. He was obviously taking a joy ride on a such a nice day.  Continuing our walk, we heard aContinue reading “How are You Spending your Time?”

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”
