Light of Life

If you follow any news, there is no question that there is an evil darkness in the world.  People are frantic about what to do.  In the United States we have had two mass killings almost back-to-back.  In the political world there has been a rush to win the blame game.  All have agreed that evil is at work, but no one wants to really name the true source of evil.  Satan is on a rampage to kill, steal, and destroy but to the world elites, this would only be an archaic, outdated, and even unthinkable description of the source of this type of evil.

The Blessed, Look Like This!!

There have been thousands of books written about being successful, rich, happy, fulfilled, and the list seems to never end.  Everyone seems to be looking for that formula of life that will bring the blessings of peace and joy.

Jesus began a sermon with some verses we call the Beatitudes (Blessings).  It is not a formula but a lifestyle likened unto Jesus.  For the follower of Jesus, these are not optional nuggets of wisdom but the principles for our lives as we journey with Jesus.

If Tombs Could Talk

I know, it sounds like a weird topic.  Tombs don’t talk—do they?  When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, the people were praising God for the things they had saw.  The Pharisees called for Jesus to rebuke His disciples and He responded, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:40 NKJV).  My thinking is, “If stones cry out, I guess tombs could talk!”  Just a thought…

Journey Update: February 2019


The last week of January, our kids here in Alabama were hyped up for a good snow, only to awake to a cold rain.  Oh well, that’s Alabama for you!  The Bible in Proverb 13:12a (NKJV) says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.”  Most of us have been heart-sick over some disappointment.  We get our hopes up and then it deflates like a cheap balloon.  When we listen to people’s stories, we hear the heart-cry of broken dreams and promises.  In these moments, we have a great opportunity to share the hope we have in Jesus.

Spiritual Identity

There is an identity problem in our world that has led to great confusion.  People are confused, not knowing who they are.  They are searching for an identity, for a rock to stand on in a flooded stream.  Some have went on journeys for the sole reason of “finding themselves” as if they were somewhere else.  There are way too many poor, lost, wandering souls who are alienated from God’s original design and created identity.

Identity in Christ

Identity in the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus.

Jesus, first identified with us.  Man could not spiritually redeem himself by reformation or by following the rules.  Mankind is innately a sinner in great need of a redeemer.  The Redeemer had to come in the same form as our first-ancestor-father Adam.  God provided the only sufficient sacrifice in the Redeemer—His Only Eternal Son.
