  • Bad Things - Good People We all have wondered from time to time, why so many bad things seem to happen to good people. But there is a reason. Perhaps first we should define what the word “best” is understood to mean - what it means to whom, and how do “people” perceive it as they do.…

  • You and I were created and born to worship. Even if we are presently unaware of it. Even if it exists only in our minds - something or someone outside of that which we call the “self“. Indeed we, as human beings, are put together spiritually and even mentally and physically, to worship something or someone,…

  • Since the time that Satan was cast out of heaven, he has been orchestrating and manipulating the world....unseen and silent - except for what can be seen as the results of his activity. However, the world in the main does not make the connection. It sees only the results. This has always been true. In all world affairs,…

  • Has the earth reached a breaking point? Has God allowed a way to get mankind’s attention that cannot be ignored any longer? Has the world reached a kind of “breaking point? A "point of no return"? It is amazing that there is very little desire to look beyond the carnage and ask “who”…

  • At one time there was a popular love song that included a lyric that was repeated over and over: “ You always hurt the one you love…” True love seems so very fragile in our world…it can break in pieces with a gentle impact or disturbance. True, faithful and enduring love, seems indeed to…

  • Do you know, or know of, a person that seems to be a perfect person - at least as perfect a person as a human can be? If you do, you are not alone. I know one also. A good person. But not a Godly person. It has seemed for a long time to be such a contradiction - this person seems sinless, as much as can…

  • How many times have we heard the expression "what, me worry...?" Of all the conditions of mind rampant in the human race, there is one that comes closest to being universal. It consists of only five letters in English. It is one of the most universal - if not THE most universal condition of humanity on…

  • In our memory, heart, and mind, loved ones never die. It is something that can never be completely forgotten. So it was also, with Jesus. There are times in everyone’s life when death strikes. Seldom is it anticipated, unless someone has endured a long illness, And when a friend or a someone well known to…

  •  In one the Apostle Paul’s letters there is a statement by which he begins to summarize what he had just written. He had begun with his treatise in Romans chapter 7. Many times in this writer’s journey as a Christian, I have hurriedly turned to only one verse in his summing up of the Christian life,…

  •  Most of those of us who confess to be Christians are familiar with the following: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” - Luke 10:27 There is a peculiar irony concerning us…

  • Nothing strikes terror in the mind of a student in school more than the word “test”! Our lives are, as Christians, sometimes filled with God’s testing. His testing is not to determine whether we “fail’ or “pass“. If we belong to Christ, He sometimes tests us in order to strengthen…

  •  The Beginning? There are several references in the Bible that refer to a “beginning” or “beginnings”. Some include reference to an “end” or “endings” of an event or events. Jesus refers these dramatic events as the beginning of the end. Sorrows and unimaginable…

  • Is it wrong as a Christian to seek eternal rewards from God? The Apostle Paul affirms that every Christian who remains faithful until they die will also receive an award from Jesus. Even more than this, Jesus Himself affirms and speaks directly of those who struggle to grow spiritually. To those who overcome difficulties…

  •  Do you find yourself reliving and rerunning your life, reflecting on your life as far back as you can remember? As we all grow older, this tendency increases for some. And eventually they may wonder why…why does the mind tend to begin to play reruns of events from our past? Assuming that it does (and will)…

  • There is an old Christian melody that includes the phrase. “…troubles trouble us all”. Who among us, if we are striving to live as Christ wants us to live, have not experienced troubles of one kind or another. In a world that steadily grows more dangerous and difficult to live in as Christians, at…
