The Only Way Forward is on Our Knees

We have been emphasizing daily Bible reading this year. We passed out a nifty little guide that takes us through the entire Bible in one year. We spent numerous weeks looking at an Overview of the Bible. And that is absolutely essential and right and good. The Bible is God’s Holy Word; it is the…

You Can Make It!

Reading through the entire Bible in one year is hard. I pray that you are persevering and finding joy in the journey. We are beginning a couple of months in the Wisdom literature of the OT—Job through the Song of Solomon. If, for whatever reason, you had set this challenge aside, now is the perfect…

A Few Reflections on our Recent Missions Trip

First and foremost the Lord’s provision is so good and glorious! Thinking back to when we began to discuss and plan a short term missions trip, I remember wondering who would be interested and able to go and how hard is might be to raise the funds. God stirred hearts and we ended up with…

Enjoying (and Exercising) Our Freedom

As you well know, we have a major holiday on the first Friday in July this year—Independence Day. We commemorate and celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia on that morning of July 4th, 1776. You know that Thomas Jefferson penned the original draft as the…

Celebrate

  What will you celebrate this month? Children all over the country will be celebrating that school is over and summer vacation is beginning! June has traditionally been the most popular month for weddings; will you be celebrating an anniversary? We must thank God that we have the freedom and privilege of celebrating all sorts…

Give Thanks for Moms and the Ordinary Means of Grace

Special occasions give us special opportunities to express ourselves in ways we might not otherwise. And while we can joke about “Hallmark holidays,” it is good to share our thanks and appreciation in tangible and different ways. Give thanks to God for your mother, and if you are able, thank your mother! Call her hug…

The Lord Lives!

As Christians every Sunday gathering to worship is a reminder and celebration that Jesus Christ is Risen—Halleluiah! When we confess our faith using the Apostles’ Creed we declare that after Jesus died and was buried, “The third day he rose again from the dead.” He rose the day after the Sabbath (the sev-enth day of…

Not Hidden From Us, But Hidden Within Us

“Sic enim Deus dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret: ut omnis, qui credit in eum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam aeternam.” JOANNEM 3, 16. As you probably guessed from picking out a few familiar words or the reference, that verse is John 3:16 from the Latin Vulgate.   Jerome, who became a leader in…

What Warms Your Heart This February?

It is COLD! What with the polar vortex and arctic blasts, most of us will be glad January is over. But February is still a winter month, and we must be ready for more chilliness. But I trust and pray that your heart is not frozen as you enter this second month of the year…

Beginning the New Year with the Bible

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV) These foundational verses are a great encouragement to seriously read and study the Bible. It is God’s Word—therefore it is holy and…
