Blessed

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered….”  Rom 4:7, ESV It has not been my practice on this blog to hide my faults. Instead I have endeavored to make my spiritual growth a public matter. I do not detail everything, of course, choosing instead to include those things that I... Continue Reading →

Imprisoned!

"But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that...

Get Lost!

I'm not sure if the present generation is all that much different from past generations when it comes to love of self and self-esteem. I have thought for some time that self-love, today, is probably at an all-time low. We have increased suicide rates, mass shootings, bullying, etc. And despite the fact that tolerance has become... Continue Reading →

But although we did almost everything together, George had a naughty streak. Somehow he never got caught. No matter... Continue Reading →

“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” (Matthew 25:21 ESV). Who doesn’t want to be successful? I don’t know of anyone who has set out with dreams of failure. Oftentimes, however,... Continue Reading →

Am I Stupid?

“Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid” (Proverbs 12:1, ESV) Catchy title, huh? It’s meant to be rhetorical, but comment away if you must! My first two years of University were spent at a large, and well-known, “party school.” I had become serious about my faith a couple of years... Continue Reading →

The Devil You Know

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil... Continue Reading →
