Perhaps you have now come to the understanding that COVID-19 is a merciful blessing from God intended to get the world's attention - that it's a wake-up call to repent. Now what? How do we convey this message to a lost and dying world? How do we roust the church from its slumber? I think … Continue reading I Need A Plan!
My wife and I came to the realization that it will just be the two of us for Thanksgiving. Why? COVID-19. That was a hard pill to swallow. There's a bigger picture to all this that we reminded ourselves of. This disease didn't appear out of the blue. Satan didn't create it. He creates nothing. … Continue reading A New Attitude.
Last week I had learned that California was banning several books from its school curriculum, including "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." I guess it's a book that some folks think will do our youngsters more harm than good. I've read this book many times, mostly as a teenager. It's been decades since the last time. … Continue reading Huckleberry Finn
I have not yet stepped out into a public place and openly proclaimed the gospel as a street-preacher would. I've not gone door-to-door to share the good news. Perhaps I should. Who knows, I might like it! It's not that I am hiding my faith. I openly talk about Jesus in restaurants and other public … Continue reading What Should I Say?
We're in for another round of COVID lockdowns in Minnesota starting Friday night. It seems more people are taking this round more seriously since word is that hospitals are close to capacity AND there is a significant number of health care workers out because they have contracted the disease. What's the Christian response now? In … Continue reading I Create Calamity.
It always amazes me how the bible reveals things which I never really noticed before. Or how I may have known something but didn't realize where in scripture it was located. This morning as I was reading 2 Corinthians, I noticed something interesting. Often, I open my bible and start reading, either forward from that … Continue reading Ministry of Death
It's been awhile since I wrote about my study on the messianic prophecy of the Old Testament. It's slow going only because it is so, so rich in content. I'm proud to say that I'm only at Genesis 11. Let me tell you a little from what I've learned about Noah and his sons. Remember, … Continue reading The Sons of Noah
Last time, I wrote about the reasons why the unsaved should change their ways. Today, I'm going to flip the perspective to those who are already saved towards those who aren't. I meet regularly with a group of men and was asked to do a devotional for this week. Immediately, 1 Timothy 2 popped into … Continue reading A Heart for the Lost.
A good friend of mine is in the hospital for COVID. He's been there since Friday. It's uncertain when he will get out. I suggested to him that it was time for him to get things right with Jesus. Why should he? For the same reason that all of us should - because God commanded … Continue reading Change Your Ways, Son.
"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life;" John 3:36 I read my bible to when I hunt deer. It's water-proof, so there is no need to worry about the weather. It's free of any markings or notes from previous readings. This is nice because I start to notice things I hadn't before. For instance, … Continue reading Eternal Life.
