Trust

I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of day this person had when they found out that someone played a cruel trick on them.  While in China, I heard about other foreigners going to tattoo shops and asking for a special phrase – but ending up with a tattoo of  外国人 (meaning “foreigner”) permanently inked on the body but, I think “turkey sandwich” might win the day. This…

King of My Life

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.     Luke 1:31-33 Lead Me To Calvary is one…

A Key Verse That We Need to Know

Early in His ministry, Jesus made this bold declaration: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Matt. 7:21).  Think about each element of this verse and the two verses that follow. There is nothing more important or essential for us than to “enter the kingdom of heaven.” …

Things in the Bible that Worry Me Most

Have you ever entertained the thought that there may be something in the Bible that you are failing to understand properly that could have eternal ramifications for you? Admittedly, there are some rather complex and difficult passages in the Bible, even the apostle Peter said so, himself (2 Peter 3:16). So, here is my question, “What are the top five most worrisome verses…

The Battle

You are in a battle! You may not see it and you might forget that it is there. But your enemy would love nothing more than for you to go through life filled with discouragement and defeat. Do not let him get what he wants! If you are a Christian, Satan and others in life will throw obstacles and attacks your way hoping to bring you down – which is why Peter said…

We’re Part of a Family

I love getting together with my family and talking about my ancestors and hearing stories about them. Some are funny, some heroic, some you wouldn’t want others knowing about! But sometimes when I’m with my brothers in Texas they will be telling a story about a great uncle or some other relative that I don’t really know. Part of this is because when I…

Trust and Obey

One night at a Dwight L. Moody evangelistic meeting in Brockton, Massachusetts, a young man stood up to testify about his confidence of salvation.  He said, “I am not quite sure,” meaning that he wasn’t really certain that God would save him from his sins—and then he continued, “But I’m going to trust, and I’m going to obey”—meaning that he planned to trust God for…

Trust and Obey

Trust and obey, For there’s no other way,  To be happy in Jesus,  But to trust and obey. Throughout your life I’m sure that there are many moments where you feel generally in control.  Like when you are driving your car, and you feel comfortable enough to look down and change the radio.  Why?  Because you think you have it all under control. …
