• As we read Luke 12 and 13 we come face to face with the hypocrisy of the religious leaders but also the populace. All are guilty of what we are guilty of–condemnation of other’s level of spirituality. We love to […]

  • Prov 30 One of my enjoyments, of which there are many, is to browse in the bookstore near to us. I could spend hours reading, browsing, picking out books but when I return home, the book I love most is God’s Wo […]

  • Some years ago I read “The Secret Garden” to my third graders and they were spellbound. What made it so special was that the garden had a magic key that if found would open the door. A robin digging in the dirt […]

  • Are you a procrastinator or an anticipator? Procrastinators use many delaying tactics to not complete tasks but anticipators move full steam ahead because they are driven by time and details. Joshua is the latter […]

  • The Apostle John recorded the scene in Bethany about the death, burial and “resurrection” of the dear friend Lazarus. It was a gripping story which left us waiting with bated breath as to the outcome. But now her […]

  • Jesus has been in Cana and has now traveled back to Jerusalem. He could have chosen any of the city gates to enter but he chose the sheep gate, the very gate that the lambs are ushered in for sacrifices. Grab […]

  • Thank you for your comment.

  • The NT gospels share with us about the ruling religious leaders who walked about Jerusalem telling others what to do but never doing it themselves.  Yet there was one, a member of the ruling council and “the” teac […]

  • In chapter 1 the Apostle John asked us to “come and see.” In chapter 2 he asks us to “come and taste.” And what are we to taste but the goodness, lovingkindness, and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ. And the […]

  • A Story of Joshua, Caleb and the Truth of Psalm 37

    Waiting, waiting, waiting is the hardest test God has given to us in so many ways. We want the answer now but Isaiah tells us that God’s ways are higher than o […]

  • Jesus gave this commandment:  “I give you a new commandment – to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. Everyone will know by this that you are my disciples – if you have l […]

  • Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm in the psalter and it is filled with praise for the Father Almighty. In sharp contrast is the shortest verse recorded by the Apostle John:  “Jesus wept.” [John 11:35] Placed side […]

  • Do you ponder and wonder and ask how to share God’s omnipotent power with others? The psalmist used word pictures:  “the mountains skipped like rams, the sea fled, the Jordan turned back and the earth tremb […]

  • They say there are morning people and night people. Morning people begin work long before the sun comes up. Joshua must have been a morning person because Joshua 3:1 begins “Bright and early the next morning J […]

  • They say if walls could talk they would teach us lessons we should learn.  One of those lessons comes right out of scripture in Joshua chapter 1. Joshua needed the assurance that the Israelites would move f […]

  • You have been called by God to disciple another or to your church’s ministry pool, but you feel like you are just treading water. The time constraints on your personal life,  sundry problems and […]

  • In Paul’s words:  “Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, who risked their own necks for my life.”

    Of all the couples of the Bible, not one has more positive words written about them than Aquila […]

  • Right in the middle of Romans 16, we meet Paul’s “dear friend” Epenetus. His distinction is that he was the first convert to Christ in the province of Asia. He is only mentioned here in the whole of the NT. We do […]

  • The Apostle Professor, Paul, is specifically speaking to the first-century believers and it is now passed on to us: “Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food.”[Rom 14] …And we could add to that list. […]
