The Change

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NAU) “Do not be conformed…” – shaped, molded, to be guided by. “To this world” – the…

The Best Food

“My life seems to be filled with wasted days and years.” Every heard that? Ever thought that? I would think it is a regular thought with most, if not all, of us. God had Isaiah to write about it. 2  Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor…

Abide in Jesus

Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. (2 Jn. 1:9 ESV) It is not the responsibility of any church nor any individual Christian to make laws for God. As a matter of…

Consider The Lilies

Is your mind troubled and weary? Why not take Jesus’ advice? First, take a walk, preferably in the woods. Or, sit on your deck or porch. Second, change the attention of your mind. Let your mind focus on the things you see and hear around you. Notice the trees, the flowers, the birds, the animals,…

That’s Enough

I have a little quiz for you. Who said the following? “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Do you know? I will tell you at the end, if you do not. Some interesting things come from this famous chapter in the Bible. 1) A choice has to be made.…

Hope

Hope I hope for a lot of things. Mostly for things tied to this world and this life. In other words, things that will not last and are, therefore, temporary with no lasting value. He The Creator of all things. The One who knows all things and has all power to do all things. The…

“Pie In The Sky”

I want to quote from an article written by Cecil May, Jr. from his “Preacher Talk” newsletter. “Atheists often ridicule Christians’ hope of heaven as ‘pie in the sky, by and by.’ Robert Ingersoll, famous atheistic speaker, who went about the country, speaking against God, the Bible and Christianity, said, ‘The time to be happy…

Causing The Devil To Flee

I’ve been reading something that says, “The devil always flees from the name of Jesus.” Is that true? Once again, the Bible offers us help for the answer. It is true that Jesus has all power over the devil and his evil spirits. They feared him, were subject to him and were aware of their…

Watching

How do you feel about being watched? Do you have a smart phone? Do you ever use a credit card? Do you work on a computer? Guess what? You’re watched. Being watched can be a comforting thing. It can also be a very troubling thing. What we are doing, and who is watching makes all…

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14) The word “fearfully” can carry the idea of awesome or to be in awe. The word “wonderful” can also be translated marvelous or amazing. Just pulling that verse out of its context, how do…
