NO WAVERING NOW!

Hebrews 10:23 Hold fast the profession of my faith without wavering. That sure sounds like a tall order for me to stand strong, no matter what! However, I benefit from remembering the comment by Watchman Nee, “If the God on the throne had given these commandments for me to keep, that would be most unfair […]

UGLY? WHAT’S THAT?

Will we be physically beautiful in heaven? We will certainly not have any attitudes connecting surface appearance to the persons worth. I don’t think that we will evaluate ourselves or others based on appearance, except to say to ourselves, “How wonderful to see you.” We will delight in recognizing each other and having a chance […]

BLESSED ENEMIES

Please chew me out, ouch, but thanks! Feedback, give me feedback, more feedback! There is no growth without seeing an area to grow in and I am so blind that I might look and look and see only minor, “cosmetic” flaws. I was counseling a pastor in Alaska who had struggled with low self esteem […]

Unconditional Surrender!

When I decided to quit being at war with God, (like a commander surrendering the city to an invader) I wanted to know what were the terms of surrender. How about I give him 10% of my income and the rest his mine to use, however I want? How about I give him Sunday morning […]

Study to be quiet?

What is this business about my needing to study, strive, labor to be quiet? shouldn’t, quiet, just happen? I Thessalonians 4:11. I have always been a quiet person on the outside. For example, when I had the opportunity to give a Sunday morning sermon at a high school reunion, all my friends came up to […]

Scriptural Meditation

Happy as the person who does not apply ungodly advice even from godly people. Or hang around with sinners, wishing we could do what they do, or join in with scoffers as they make fun of other people. Instead they meditate day and night on God’s word. They will be like trees that are green […]
