Always with Love.  Never Without It.

By On November 26, 2019

The local church in Corinth had lots of potential but also lots of problems. It was a long letter the Apostle Paul had written to them. Did they convene a special weekend service to read aloud the long letter? If some worker or missionary was to write such a long letter today, we’d be restless by the time Chapter Two…

Nehushtan – It Has to Go Too!

By On November 19, 2019

Did you ever have something you didn’t want to let go because of the memories attached to it? Obviously, there is nothing wrong with a keepsake.

By On October 15, 2019

She was no spring chicken – to say the least. She had been sporting those beautiful wrinkles for more than a few years. She had weathered the storms of life. Did she walk slowly with a cane?

Good News from the Christians

By On October 8, 2019

I’m very concerned. Satan has had his share of successes in bringing down believers. He’ll come at them from any angle. He’s a tempter with no shortage of tricks and temptations to trip-up believers. I’m worried about the Christians in Thessalonica. Their testimony in the community was second to none. Exemplary and a powerful witness for Christ! But they have…
