Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:19 A friend of mine told me of a couple from his church that stopped on the road to help someone who was having a problem with a car and was hit by another vehicle. Both husband and wife died leaving behind their underage children. I’m sure many of the members of that church are ask ..

Taken

At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared…. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, h ..

Unwavering Confidence!

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 NIV Scholars are not quite sure when David wrote Psalm 27. What is clear is that it expresses the confidence of a man of faith in spite of his difficult circumstances. The first half of the Psalm is filled with optimism and confidence. However, the second half conveys the existentia ..

Disputed Matters!

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. Romans 14:1 For the last two days, the partisanship in American politics has been put aside as most Democratic and Republican leaders try to honor the legacy of John McCain. It has been reported that Senator McCain requested Presidents George W. Bush and Obama to give the eulogy at his funeral. This is a refr ..

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Two days ago I read a story about the life of President Jimmy Carter. At 93 years old, Carter still teaches Sunday school at his home church. He lives in a very modest home in his Georgia farm. The house, in rural Plains, Georgia is ‘less than the value of the ar ..

The Scales fell off

Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Acts 9:18-19 Saul’s experience on the road to Damascus was quite dramatic and traumatic. As a young man with a distinguished religious pedigree, he was zealous for his Jewish faith and was feared by many. After hi ..

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke 19:10 Last year, on my way back from a business trip to Montreal, I lost my car key. I spent two hours looking for those car keys all over the airport's parking lot. I asked the airport customer service attendant to make a public announcement about the lost key in case someone else found it so they can return it to me. I even cal ..

Difficult Transitions

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens." Ecclesiastes 3:1 Last month, my wife told me to apply for my AARP membership, and it suddenly dawned on me that I am of the age to become a member of AARP. That very idea is unsettling to me. I have a hard time accepting the fact that I am no longer 19 and full of energy. The transition to senior-hood i ..

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. Proverbs 18:22 My wife and I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary today. The fact that we’ve been married for half of my life on earth is amazing to me. I have learned a lot about relationships, patience, commitment and love through this marriage. Indeed, God has used this marriage to teach me eternal lessons. ..

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3 Code Blue is “an emergency situation announced in a hospital or institution in which a patient is in cardiopulmonary arrest, requiring a team of providers (sometimes called a 'code team') to rush to the specific location and begin immediate resuscitative efforts.” A code blue in adults ..
