Phil. 1:21 – For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 08:58:53 +0000

Paul’s sole existence is found in Christ. The apostle Paul is saying that everything he has tried to be, everything he is, and everything he looked forward to, each and every one of them has to do with living for Jesus. From the time of his conversion until his martyrdom, every move he made was […]

Is it even necessary these days to show respect to others?

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 08:48:44 +0000

I was speaking about respect recently when it dawned on me that my hearers had little idea of what the term meant nor were they convinced that certain people deserved it at all. A broad shouldered young man explained to me that he didn’t have to respect his aged grandmother because he was stronger than […]

A thousand ways to find time for God

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 08:52:02 +0000

The mother of John and Charles Wesley, Susanna, had 19 children. At times, she was alone in rearing them. When it came time for her personal prayer, she created her own space by throwing her apron up over her head. It served as a sign for her children to quieted down and leave her in […]

Preparing for the Storm

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 08:55:21 +0000

We’ve seen it many times: the report on the news tells of a big storm approaching.  Predictions are made of wide spread damage and devastation.  Images of people boarding up their homes and evacuating threatened areas flash across the screen.  But, did you notice? The sun is usually shining brightly while all of this is […]

After all, at a funeral, people are already thinking “big” thoughts about life, death, and eternal destinies.

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 08:04:32 +0000

Jesus took some breaks with His disciples (Mk. 6:31) and so do we.  These studies are scheduled to resume on 2/12.  We hope you will rejoin us at that time. Some time ago I attended a funeral conducted by one of our religious neighbors. The minister did, for the most part, a good job of comforting […]

A suggestion for President Donald Trump’s favorite verse

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 08:15:34 +0000

When once asked to name one or two Bible verses that are his favorites, after he proclaimed repeatedly that the Bible is his favorite book, Donald Trump declined to cite a single verse, claiming that it’s “very personal.” Let me suggest  a good verse to start with, for his life: Jer 9.23-24. “Wise people should […]

What means the very most to me?

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 08:04:35 +0000

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” […]

A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard.  Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him.  He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.  The tailgating woman immediately hit her horn, screaming in […]

An elderly man lay dying in his bed. In death’s agony, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookies wafting up the stairs.  He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed.  Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort […]

The Impact Of Vows

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 08:17:34 +0000

Vows are both positive and negative. In the positive there is a pledge to do and in the negative there is a pledge to abstain from doing. Vows rest on human views of religious obligations. They often see the good God has done and consider an offering to demonstrate the joy felt for that which […]

Psalm 72:1 A Psalm for Solomon. Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 08:07:29 +0000

This psalm is a prayer for a king. The psalmist prays that God would bestow on the king qualifications which would tend to secure a just (verse 1), peaceful (verse 2), benevolent (verse 3), and godly (verse 4) reign. These traits please God, and the citizens’ happiness depends on them. If the kings of Israel […]

Straddling the fence is not a neutral position. It is sitting on the devil’s property.

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 08:55:23 +0000

Our good brother and friend Alexandre Magalhaes preached here in São José dos Campos. He told the story of the man straddling the fence. On one side of the fence, stood an angel; on the other, the devil. The angel did not stop encouraging the man to jump off the fence on his side, the […]

My mom was the chip.

RAY CHARLES observed, “Nowadays they say you need a special chip to put in the TV so kids can’t watch this and that… …In my day, we didn’t need a chip.  My mom was the chip.  End of story.” I believe you will agree that moms need to get back to guiding the house in […]

He could have called more than seventy-two thousand angels

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 09:32:08 +0000

Peter in his bravado evidently decided to go solo. He was going to take on an entire mob armed with swords and clubs (cf. Matthew 26:47). At least that was what he wanted everyone to believe. To prove his ardor and determination, the ever-brash disciple took out his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, […]

Anthony and Stacey were furious with each other. Ralph, their Fawn Pug, tried to stay out of harm’s way in his box, hoping the yelling would stop soon.

Before you get on Facebook or Twitter to complain about the direction our country is headed …

There is a wall being built in our culture. It is a wall that is separating people from God. There are many that cry, “The problem is our courts who pass or uphold unjust and immoral laws.” Others shout, “The problem is our politicians who support self-interests and refuse to stand for right.” Even more […]

The prophet Jonah’s tomb – destroyed?

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 09:11:43 +0000

“The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed greater than Jonah is here (Matthew 12:41).” On July 25, 2014 ISIS set dynamite charges over a shrine in Mosul, Iraq reputed to be the tomb of the prophet Jonah […]
