Blessed Rain

It was so nice to drive out of Helena this morning and see the water rolling over the dam. We thank God for the blessing of rain. Blessings often come with mixed emotions. The front that brought our rain stretched across our country from North to South. We were first in its path in York,…

Put On Christ

The ladies in the office have started a “dress code” for Fridays at the office. They select one of the many T-shirts made for our youth groups, and we have to wear the one they select. Last Friday, their choice was the long sleeve gray one with the fingerprint on the front. I didn’t have…

Election Day

Today is election day. Today we choose the leadership of our country for the next few years. Before He ever created anything, God elected, determined to bless all humanity in Jesus the Christ. He chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In Christ, we…

My Vote

My vote is important to me. My vote is not a statement of personal like nor dislike for either candidate. Several factors enter into the making of my decision as to whom to vote for. But two are key. The first is the oath of office. The oath for the office of president of the…

The Great Debate

In the Great Debate we are all participants.   It is the Great Debate because it is the most important of all debates. At stake is our present life and eternal destiny.   Paul describes the Great Debate with these words:   21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do…

Offensive

There may have been times in the recent past when the use of the word “offensive” was most often in the context of a sporting event. But in our “politically correct” world of today, being offensive seems to have become one of the major things we must avoid in any relationship. Because we have a…

Here Is Your Sign

A few years ago a comedian designed his act around finding things people say and do to show that their intelligence level may not be all that it should be. You know, they show themselves to be “a half bubble off plumb”, “their elevator does quite go all the way to the top”, or “they…
