I Wonder

Last year around Christmas time I tweeted a few fragments of Christmas songs on the days leading up to Christmas.  I got a good response as people enjoyed taking time to meditate on the truths in lyrics such as: “Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing”   “Born to raise the sons of earth,…

Four Blood Moons

Once again the Church world is being rocked by so-called prophetic signs of the end-times, this time in the form of the so-called “Four Blood Moons.” In a book by that title (Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change) the author, Pastor John Hagee lays out what he calls “celestial signals” signifying something earth-changing…

You Are God’s Building

1 Corinthians 3:9 When I was in English class in grade school, I learned repeatedly in my compositions to never mix metaphors. Apparently, the apostle Paul never took my class!

A Praying Community

One thing we can easily overlook as we read Luke’s description of the Early Church in Acts chapter 2 is how vital prayer was to that community as well as the success of the Gospel. Luke paints a picture of a close-knit community who shared what they had together and regularly ate meals together. But…

Remember Jesus Christ

2 Tim. 2:8   Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel. At a recent meeting of pastors I attended the question was put forward: What is the greatest need in the Church today? There are many possible answers to that question: revival, spiritual maturity, understanding the message of grace,…
