Confidence

Several years ago Dr. Daniel Boorstin, the librarian of the Librarian of Congress, displayed for a TV show a little blue box from a small closet that once held the library’s rarities. The label on the box read: CONTENTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S POCKETS ON THE NIGHT OF APRIL 14, 1865. Had that been any other…

The Truth

Winston Churchill said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.” That may be a common response to truth, but that attitude no doubt sets us on the road to tragedy and destruction. There is no way to love and follow God…

Born of God

This past week as the rain showers moved through, they have often been accompanied by strong winds. High winds can have devastating effects on our trees, homes, and other structures because the energy behind them is an impressive force. When the wind blows, we cannot see it, but we see where it has been. Tree…

God’s Love and Ours

When David finally became king over all Israel, one of the first items of business was to inquire if there were any left of Saul’s house or family. Normally, this would be bad news for the former king’s family because the new ruler customarily killed all remaining relatives to remove the threat of any heirs…

Test the Spirits!

John opens 1 John the 4thchapter with thee words;”Beloved, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits.” in effect John is reminding us of something we all know, that you can’t believe everything you hear.   Certainly today this is as true as it was then, we can’t take for a fact everything that…

Guarding our Hearts

Fair-weather Mountain is one of the most spectacular mountains North America. Located off the southeast coast of Alaska, the mountain reaches 15,000 feet above sea level. Massive granite walls with deep ravines cut by cascading glaciers create an inspiring view. This view, however, can only be seen about twenty days a year, when the weather is…

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

There is a story told of a storm which swept in from the ocean just off the coast of Scotland. Far out in the black trough of the angry waters a ship had gone to pieces. The life-boat set out from shore in the face of what seemed almost certain disaster, but it came back…

A Light in the darkness wherever we are.

As you look around this Sunday you might notice that a few of the regulars are missing. This week in the annual NYR (Nationwide Youth Roundup) youth conference in the mountains of Colorado. Students from around the country will converge on a peaceful mountainside to worship our Lord and be challenged by his word. This…

1st John Series, Battlefield

If you read through 1 John, you’ll come across a short statement that might seem a little confusing: “Do not love the world or the things in the world”. This is the same Apostle who wrote that “God so loved the world that he sent his only son” (John 3:16). John isn’t schizophrenic, nor did…

Walk HIS Way

If you’re a people watcher you’ve probably noticed children who walk like their parents!  Like a man in St. Louis who walked with a little bit of a bounce. The balls of his feet were more involved in his walk than most of us. His son walked the same way. Or a Doctor who walked…
