  • Tragedy in Houston proves we really can get along

    My thoughts have been completely captivated by the events playing out in Houston and the surrounding area for the past week, with constant images of the floods and devastation inundating the entire area.

  • The importance of being the world’s salt and light

    If you have spent time around church, you most likely are familiar with the expression that we, as followers of Christ, are to be “salt and light.”

    I believe for most of us that expression has become cliché and meaningless.

    Jesus said in John 8:12: “I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

  • Unwavering faith during the most turbulent times

    We are living in an unbelievable time in the history of this world. Never in history have we had so much.

    Technology, knowledge and riches abound that were only a few years ago unimaginable.

     But these incredible changes may also lead to many into bondage.

    The bondage of debt, self-reliance and sin, and people living their lives independent from God.

    There is strife at every turn, whether from threat of nuclear war or global economic down turn or terrorism.

  • For the repentant, no sin is too great for God’s love

    I have always been amazed at John’s explanation and description of Jesus in the opening verses of John’s gospel. Chapter I:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

  • Renewing your mind through Jesus Christ

    There is a great story about a man that had many sheep. His sheep were thriving and healthy except for one big problem. His property was also occupied by many coyotes that had developed a taste for sheep.

    Now the man thought of all his options. He could get a gun and kill the coyotes. This would help the sheep, but not so good for the coyotes. He could trap the coyotes, and put them in cages, but that wouldn’t change the coyotes. They would just be trapped and at the first opportunity if released, they are going for some lamb chops.
