When death comes knocking

Good Morning! I have been thinking this morning about the elder of the church in Cadiz KY who encountered death along with his wife and daughter as they returned home from church services. This is a terrible tragedy, but… he was an elder serving in the Lord’s church. He was living well according to God’s Word. To … Continue reading

Freedom!

Good Morning! “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. … For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Gal. 5:1, 13 “Live as people who … Continue reading

Light!

Good Morning! Let there be light! A friend started this song in my head this morning, “Ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone…” It got me started thinking about these passages. “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the … Continue reading

Idols!!

Good Morning! “Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.” “What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the … Continue reading

Ebola or God? Fear or Trust?

Good Morning! (and it is a good one, in spite of the news!) I am still thinking about all this ebola business. Two confirmed cases among those who cared for the first case here, one more possible, schools closing just from the possibility that someone may have come in contact. Fear is ramping up. The media is … Continue reading

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,… who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good  … Continue reading

I can see!!

Good Morning! A man born blind was healed by Jesus and then questioned by the leaders of the Jews. “Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him he said, ‘Do you believe in the Son of Man?’ He answered, ‘And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?’ Jesus … Continue reading

“I am the resurrection and the life”

Good Morning! “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?’” John 11:25-26 There is a resurrection coming. Although we see death around us everyday and we … Continue reading

Sheep! Bah!

Good Morning! “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:10-11 There are so many things about sheep that are not flattering. They are stubborn, They … Continue reading

Be strong, and work!

Good Morning! “Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, declares the Lord. Be strong, O Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land, declares the Lord. Work, for I am with you, declares the Lord of hosts” Haggai 2:4 In context, they are worried about how things are looking … Continue reading
