Pray

Many of the people I know are praying. One person’s prayer can have great impact.

How do You Survive a Snakebite?

Few people like snakes. I don’t. So no wonder when God had enough of Israel’s constant complaining He sent serpents among them. They had grumbled about many things in their journey in the wilderness.

Are you Walking in Darkness?

I lived about ten years earlier in life in spiritual darkness. When walking in darkness you live without the influence of spiritual light. I had a relationship with God through faith in Christ, but I lived in darkness for a number of years. If you live in darkness, you have no fellowship with God. WeContinue reading “Are you Walking in Darkness?”

Once a Child; Always a Child?

I often misunderstood the Bible when I failed to distinguish between ‘relationship’ and ‘fellowship’. This can lead to some huge misunderstandings which result in the way you live.

It’sContinue reading “Is Anything Really Free?”

Have You Ever Taken a Drink of Living Water?

When I was a kid growing up in the fifties this was a pump at one of the neighbors where you could get a drink. We’d be running around outside playing ball. The humidity is usually high in western Pennsylvania in the summer time. Sweat would be dripping. But the water that came out ofContinue reading “Have You Ever Taken a Drink of Living Water?”
