SAUL … IN AGREEMENT

How long does one hold something over another person’s head?   You are in a conversation, in a group more-so, and a name is mentioned, someone quickly inserts an incident that took place or was supposed to have taken place thirty years previously.  It may be an insinuation with no accuracy, and yet the expression onContinue reading “SAUL … IN AGREEMENT”

DESIGNED INTELLIGENTLY

Having lived in New Jersey for a number of years, it was my privilege to have in the congregation numerous individuals involved in multiplied areas of research.  They were brilliant individuals in their fields.  They were also solid in their convictions as relating to the Word of God, admirably so!  There is so much differenceContinue reading “DESIGNED INTELLIGENTLY”

A MONOLOGUE OR A SERMON

It has to be an opportunity to present the Gospel when a preacher gets behind the pulpit.  I sometimes sensed that the congregation might have felt that it was a monologue rather than a sermon; hopefully that was not the case, realizing that circumstances might have brought you together at an inopportune moment.  Who knows?Continue reading “A MONOLOGUE OR A SERMON”

THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST

HUBS AND SPOKES

In the process of fulfilling my responsibilities, quite frequently I pass a home with a most interesting display in the front yard.  There is this old wagon from another era sitting on the corner of the front yard. As you travel through our area of the country, you run into this scene quite frequently.  PerhapsContinue reading “HUBS AND SPOKES”

HARVESTING

Lying on the table in the surgical room, an assistant to the surgical doctor introduced herself.  I do not recall all that was said, I was half out of it from medication. However, I do remember these words: “I am the harvester.  It describes my responsibilities.  My job is to harvest some veins for Dr.Continue reading “HARVESTING”

“H”

That big blue “H” seems to be everywhere as we drive the highways.  It is readily recognizable as an indicator of where one should be headed if in need of immediate medical attention. From where we see it, the “H” indicates the shortest route to a hospital.  When one lives in an area for aContinue reading ““H””
