  • We are living in a time not too different from what was occurring in Greece during the Apostle Paul's journeys. Worldly philosophies can become a religion created into a private "God", a pseudo Christianity. They also present a counterfeit spiritualism, a subtle mix of logic and practical way of dealing with…

  • Prior to Jesus' crucifixion and ascension to the Father's right hand, he told the disciples to ask anything of Him and He would grant it. John emphasized His promise. (John 14:13) The whole issue resolves around relationship - of oneness with Him, on a level very few have experienced or known. It is a very simple…

  • Is there such a thing as being - or attempting to be - too "righteous"? Isn't it easier to conceive of being to wicked in some way, than it is to accept anything as being overly righteous. How could anyone be too righteous? Isn't that an impossibility? God is as righteous as is possible. And we realize…

  • There is a great mystery in the body of Christ. How can there be individualism and conformity at the same time - diversity in the midst of uniformity? The Apostle Paul states: "I THEREFORE, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been…

  • Would God ever want a loser in His Kingdom? Would Jesus ever want a loser in His Church? Would you ever want a loser for a brother, friend, neighbor, or even an acquaintance? Most people, regardless of their status and position in life, would not want to consider themselves as losers. Someone else might consider them…

  • Many years ago when I read the scripture containing this statement (Psalm 103:1-4), I had great expectations regarding this statement. I knew many who really needed immediate healing of their diseases, but were not being healed, at least very quickly. Eventually I realized to whom this statement was made. Then I began to…

  • Some live their lives as though they really CAN take it with them - whatever they really want to take with them when they die. Perhaps their philosophy is like a well known comedian who said he was not taking the chance of not being able to take it with him; he was sending his on ahead of him. This nearly always gets a…

  • Do you find it difficult to love the unlovable? Is it difficult to love the difficult? In a conversation with a dear friend a few years ago, the subject of workplace environment came up. This person had worked for a very large corporation for many years, had one boss, and generally the same companion workers for many years.…

  • There is an almost universal opinion about God, although the word "God" is seldomn heard except as a expletive. Very few, relatively speaking, would blatantly assert that there is no God. Whatever concept they may have about God, most believe a God exists. Therefore, many are convinced that they are OK - as far…

  • "Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy." - 1 Timothy 6:17 If you sat down and made a list of the things you enjoy most, how long would it be? Would you consider it a short list…

  • The absence of Barnabas from history after he and Paul separated has posed many questions that seem unanswerable in any satisfactory way. Did he continue to minister in Cyprus with Mark? Did he die or meet some other untimely death? (Acts 15:36-39}. The sharpness of their disagreement and the long term result is unique…

  •   What do you think when you hear the words "Holy Spirit"? Do you instantly envision some kind of firey shapes resembling tongues coming down upon those on the Day of Pentecost? Or, do you imagine an invisible power of some kind moving in invisible ways among the people of God and the world? All of this…

  • A movie was released years ago entitled "Tender Mercies". The title was intriguing at the time. In essence, as I recall, it was about the extension of forgiveness, patience, and gentleness which enabled an individual to put his live back together again. Of course, there was much more to the story, but that is…

  • With the conclusion of this series from 2 Peter 1, we have seen in capsule form the whole purpose of God for our existence. Even with the pause in His plan beginning with the fall, He did not say in vain "let us make man in our image, after Our likeness..". His plan is steadily and intricately being built…

  • Now we have ascended and built to the ultimate height. We have reached the apex. All should be ready for the construction of the capstone of the grand pyramid of Godly character! The capstone is perhaps the most talked about, the most used, misused, abused , and misunderstood of all character traits! It is often portrayed…
