I tell you what, that must have been some sermon Peter gave! Well, he gave lots of them, I suppose, but he gave a couple of doozies right after Pentecost. His first was to people in general who lived in Jerusalem. The second that was recorded was at the temple when he healed the lame … Continue reading That Guy Has Guts!
A couple days ago, I wrote about our changing environment and how it might affect the lives of many. It's all speculation, but we would be foolish to think that things aren't different today. Business as usual won't be business as usual any more. You can find that post here. What IS undeniable is that … Continue reading Working the System?
It's not hard to see that free speech is in jeopardy. Usually, we aren't too concerned about it when voices we don't like are being stifled. When it's our's.... well that's when we begin to squawk. There has been plenty of squawking lately. I've been thinking on this. We're concerned about infringement on our rights. … Continue reading Free Speech?
Who among us isn't trying to make sense of our country right now? I have bible verses rattling around my head like crazy this morning. Let me share some with you and what they mean to me today. John 17:1-19 14 I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of … Continue reading Not Of This World.

However, we are enslaved to lots of things, most of which had roots in our own free will - our sin. Jesus came to … Continue reading Freedom!
I'm not sure if I even want to recap 2020 in terms of media-type events. Who needs to rehash all that garbage? I do know that in my personal life, I have a great deal to be thankful for. Certainly, not everything is as I would like, but God is certainly evident. He's right there … Continue reading That’s All, Folks!
Today I landed on Hebrews 10 when I opened my bible. Funny, but this topic came up with a group of people last night. I also had a really interesting thing like this happen recently. I saw a post of a friend who is really struggling with the idea of "hearing" from God and is … Continue reading Prophetic Warning?
I have been looking into the history of my family farm and stumbled into something quite surprising. No, it wasn't new bones from my family, but it was from a family before mine. It was the bones of the Johannes & Abelone Holgerson family who originally homesteaded the land in the late 1800s. They came … Continue reading Buried History
My bible is all marked up. Perhaps yours is like mine, full of notes, comments, and references. I enjoy looking over these and remembering the circumstances that prompted me to make a special notation. Sometimes, I refer to an entry in this blog for times when I dove deep into a passage. Anyway, I enjoy … Continue reading Psalm 91
The Board of RZIM yesterday released an intermediate statement on allegations concerning its late founder, Ravi Zacharias. A full report will be issued in due time. For now, an external investigation affirms that Zacharias indeed was involved with sexual misconduct and had been for quite some time. This is tough. Ravi was a voice of … Continue reading On Ravi Zacharias.
