Declare the Wonders

This caused me to reflect on the prayers God has recently answered in my life and of those around me. He truly is working wonders in so many ways. I just need to be ready, when the opportunity arises, to declare these wonders to others. Remember what Peter told his critics. “For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). So, whether we tell the good news of the gospel or share how God has provided or answered prayers, may we speak up and boldly declare ‘the wonders of God.’ Continue reading

Do Good

Most of us have a gut instinct that recognizes the good we ought to do. We hear that inner voice encouraging us to step up. The difficult part, for most of us, is actually doing it. So, today … and every day this week … and well, you get the idea … let’s DO good. If you need ideas, Paul gives some specifics in Titus 2:2-10,12; 3:1-2. Let’s stop being focused on our self, our needs and desires, and instead, see the good we ought to do, and simply do it!

No Distance

All people everywhere have been ‘diagnosed’ with the ‘disease’ called sin. We all have done wrong, been disobedient, and rebelled against God. This ‘disease’ or sin caused us to be separated from God until He sent the ‘antidote,’ Jesus, to heal us. Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection cures us of our ‘disease’ when we choose to believe in and follow Him. Continue reading

Quiet Assurance

As adults, pandemic days may dizzy us with shifting schedules, the juggling of jobs, company complications, and noisy news. We find ourselves feeling overwhelmed with worries of an unknown future while longing for quiet assurance. Who do we turn to for consolation? Continue reading

What-a You Lookin’ At?

Let’s look beyond skin, and see people, people created by God. “God spoke: ‘Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature, ’” worthy of honor and respect. (Genesis 1:26a)

Remember what you learned in Kindergarten:

Be kind and respectful.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Share.
And NO running in the halls! Continue reading

Solid Rock

(H)ow are we doing on our current obstacle course? Are we keeping our balance? Are we wildly seizing temporary solutions to permanent problems or have we chosen a firm foundation on which to build our life? Can our faith withstand the outside forces beating against us? And, are we grounded on the solid Rock, the Rock called Jesus? Continue reading

An Appointment to Keep

Jesus kept His divine appointment. The question is, will we respond to His invitation by believing that He is God’s Son and choosing to follow Him. If we do, we are guaranteed an eternal heavenly appointment. From our viewpoint, it may appear delayed, but it will never be cancelled! Don’t miss it!
“They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed” (Psalm 22:5). Continue reading

The Living Word

Today we are blasted with information, teachings, and opinions from every side. ‘News’ is quickly outdated and discarded. So, instead of whiling away endless hours each week on something that will ‘wilt’ and tomorrow be gone or useless, may we use at least some of our precious time reading the living Word, hearing from a living God who has a message for each of us. May we have eyes that see, ears that listen, and a heart that desires to follow His plan for our lives. 
I challenge you to open a Bible and experience God talking to you. Continue reading

For Life

So, can we apply this ‘fighting for’ and ‘choosing life’ to the youngest of God’s creation, the pre-born? From the earliest stage of development, science and medical knowledge verify that even an embryo is a distinct, living, growing, whole human being. I challenge you, if you haven’t done so recently, to check out ‘human fetus’ online and prepare to be amazed. That baby within the womb is not a ‘blob’ of cells, but rather a life carefully and wonderfully made by God, the Creator of the universe. Continue reading

Exhale Exaltation

(L)et’s release that pent up energy to the Lord today, because after all, “He is more awesome than all who surround Him” (Psalm 89:7b). There is no one more worthy of glory, honor, and praise. Breathe Him in and then exhale exaltation to the King of kings! It is just what the ‘Doctor’ ordered! Continue reading
