    What do you Delight In?

      Delight in Doing God's Will

      Does what you delight in Please God? Dreaming of Death and Delight I recently had a dream where I was surrounded by water. Suddenly a tidal wave crashed over me, plunging me deep into a watery abyss, cut off from the breath of life.  In my dream, I knew I was about to drown, so […]

      Two Advent Stories in Isaiah

        For unto us a Son is given - Isaiah 9:6

        At Christmas time, Christians celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, into the world as a man through the virgin birth.  We remember the two advent stories in Luke 2:1-20 and Matthew 1:18–2:12.  We reflect on the humble birth of our Savior by the virgin Mary, His being laid in a manger because there was […]

        Why Did God Forsake Jesus?

          Jesus asked, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

          “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” These words, spoken by Jesus about the ninth hour as He hung on the cross, are recorded in Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34. I was reminded of these words of Christ as I read this in the book of Jeremiah: “Thou hast forsaken Me, saith the […]

          The 3rd Advent Story

            The Third Advent Story

            Have you ever realized that there are three advent stories in the Bible? We hear a lot about the first two at Christmas, but the third gets very little air time. Our Christmas stories, plays, hymns, teaching and preaching are generally based on the birth of Christ as told in the gospels of Matthew and […]

              How Have You Been Treating Jesus?

                Jesus Among Us?

                The Stranger Among Us Have you ever met Jesus in your everyday life without knowing it? Could one of the strangers you interacted with have actually been the Son of God in the flesh?  What did you say?  How did you treat Him? Jesus said that the way we treat others is the way we […]

                Why Did Jesus Curse the Fig Tree?

                  Why Jesus Cursed the Fig Tree

                  Have you ever wondered why Jesus cursed the fig tree? (Matthew 21:17-21 and Mark 11:12-24) My daughter-in-law asked me why Jesus cursed the fig tree.  I think many people wonder the same thing.  I must admit, the last time I read it, I thought, “Poor fig tree. It wasn’t its fault; it wasn’t fig season […]

                    There is Only One Way to Heaven

                    There was an old saying that “All roads lead to Rome.”  But how many roads lead to Heaven?  Have you ever asked for directions to Heaven?  Can a GPS point the way? People often claim there are many ways to Heaven.  But what does the Bible say? I just published an article in the Salvation […]

                    HE IS Risen!

                      He Is Risen

                      We Serve a Risen Savior! Jesus is Not in a grave; HE IS Risen! One of the biggest differences between the Christian faith and the religions of the world is that we serve a risen savior. Jesus was not just a good man or a religious teacher.  Jesus was the Word of God who became […]
