The end of the road

     Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.      As a kid…

Corrective Lenses

Farsighted people can see long distances.           Nearsighted people can see at close range.  People with astigmatism struggle either way, because the muscles are always straining to focus. People with any eye    problems typically can get corrective lenses to help them focus and see better.       Here is my problem. My corrective lenses broke the day…

His Walk

He walked this world as a man, a human being. But no human has ever completely walked like Him. He was free from all the prejudices of the world around Him. His words, miracles and grace touched  all of humanity. Whether Jew, Gentile or Samaritan, they learned of His love for them. He was free…

Murder

     Genesis 9:5,6 5: Surely I will require your lifeblood; from every beast I will require it. And from every man, from every man’s brother I will require the life of man. 6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man. (NASB)  …

Urgency

Who went and bought groceries last Monday night when the Weather Channel and local news stations forecasted a chance of snow? As soon as the weatherman mentioned a chance of snow many of us likely ran to purchase the essentials… milk and bread. Although I have deep respect for the         meteorologist and I love James…

One of the strangest request for help I have ever received occurred one summer day in   Gadsden, Alabama. Two men drove up and asked for help with gasoline. I asked them where they were headed. They said, “Jackson, Mississippi.” They had left from Tupelo, Mississippi, traveled to Memphis then to Nashville, then to Atlanta and…

LTC

Colossians 3:23,24 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve (NASB) It is not too late to sign up for LTC. If you have children 3rd…

Leaders

Birthdays, Christmas, Tests, Results, Health, Weather, Game Time, Fridays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Vacations, Mission Trips, Heaven. What do all those above have in common? Some make you anxious while others we greatly anticipate. Some of them have moments of temporary excitement yet long lasting memories. Some bring moments of disappointment and despair, but only one of…

Criticism

1 Peter 4:14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is…

Invitation

Have you ever been invited to…anything? Of course, you have. More than likely, you’ve been invited to multiple parties, events, get-togethers, business meetings throughout your life? Some, you wanted to be there. Others…not so much. Invitations are special, because the person throwing the party really wants you to attend. I came across a letter today…
