Neither Slumber Nor Sleep

That God watches over us is good news!  That He never falls asleep on the job is good news, too!  I, for one, am glad that God doesn’t just need a CPAP machine or a My Pillow in order to finally get needed sleep.  I, for one, am rather jealous that He can keep going […]

Never Forsaken

Who does God forsake?  None of His own, that’s for sure. God may forsake peoples and nations which have turned against Him.  Sinners and rebels and those who forsake Him, who deny Him, who rebel against Him.  They sow to the wind and reap the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7). Psalm 94:1 The LORD is a God […]

No Condemnation

No Condemnation.  No Condemnation.  Not a bit.  Not a smidgen.  Not 99.9% Condemnation-Free.  No Condemnation.  None.  Zero.  Zip.  In Christ. That’s good news worth sharing. How many of us have an inner negative voice reminding us of our failures, stripping us of our courage and reinforcing what we can’t do and why we can’t do […]

Short and to the Point

Coming up short isn’t my favorite pastime.  Finding out that I’m not good enough is either a major motivator or total downer.  Scripture doesn’t mince words about our shortcomings. As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All […]

A Cross to Bridge

Looking at the Good News we have to share, one cannot escape the unique good news of Christianity: What was impossible for man…was made possible by God. No other world religion can make the claim that God reached down to do for us what we could not do. That God would pay what was needed […]

Good News Worth Sharing

As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile– the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they […]

Perfect Vision for Troubling Times

One of my favorite passages in Scripture (2 Chronicles 20) provides us with Perfect Vision for Troubling Times. Summing up this perfect vision, 2 Chronicles 20:20 tells us, ‘Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”  I don’t know about you, […]

But God Raised Him From the Dead (Easter Sunday 2021)

“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.   This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put […]

But God Loves- Lent 40, 2021

Jesus didn’t die a victim.  He says, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me– just as the Father knows me and I know the Father– and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring […]

But God Didn’t Wait – Lent 39, 2021 (Good Friday)

God didn’t wait for us to clean up our lives.  God didn’t wait for us to earn our own salvation. Praise God, He didn’t wait. Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into […]
