How Do I Pray? What Do I Say?

Perhaps one of the most significant barriers to prayer is us.  If you’ve ever been put in a situation where you are expected to speak or make remarks, the most normal first reaction is panic.  In fact, fear of public speaking is always ranked at or near the top of peoples’ fears (sometimes ahead of … Continue reading

GOD’S ANSWER VS. OUR ANSWER FROM HABAKKUK

Habakkuk is listed among the “Minor Prophets.”  This designation does not apply to the content of their prophecies, but the length of their books, compared to the Major Prophets, e.g., Isaiah, Jeremiah.  The “job” of Old Testament Prophet is not one you would likely apply for.  Old Testament prophets generally showed up when things were … Continue reading

WHAT SHOULD YOU “GIVE UP” FOR LENT?

The observation of Lent was introduced in the church around 1000 years ago as a time for Christians to reflect, repent, and pray as a way of preparing their hearts during the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter.  A quick check of your calendar will tell you there are 45 days between Ash Wednesday … Continue reading

GOD CALLS – HOW WILL YOU RESPOND?

Thoughts on Luke 6:12-16:  Some (maybe many) of you likely have at one time or another thought or asked one of these statements: “How could they possibly have selected him or her for that job?” (Job preservation would determine how openly you asked this question.)  I never would have expected him/her to marry that person.  … Continue reading

Thoughts About Our National Leaders

1 Timothy 2:1-3, 1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight … Continue reading

Thoughts for 2014

Here we are at the beginning of a New Year.  I believe it would be good to consider how we could enter into 2014 with, if not a new mind, at least a renewed mind.  Scripture is clear that the renewal of one’s mind centers around increased knowledge about God, His person, His will, His … Continue reading

Thoughts on Luke 2

Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. 2 This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria.  Biblical scholarship has demonstrated that Luke was a careful, detailed historian, e.g., he refers to “the first census” in verse 2. … Continue reading

JESUS: BEYOND SUFFICIENT AS DELIVERER

Ps. 22:1-3, And David spoke the words of this song to the Lord in the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. 2 He said, “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; 3 My God, my rock, in whom I take … Continue reading

Who Is He…?”

A Christmas hymn from 1866 repeatedly asks the question, “Who is He…?”  That is the question many still ask as they consider the person of Jesus Christ. Some time ago, I ran across an account from the show business world.  It possibly is apocryphal, but a good illustration, nonetheless.  Supposedly, a talent scout’s report on … Continue reading
