IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL

The song-writer said: It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,          Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,          So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

GOD HAS SPOKEN

The Book of Hebrews is particularly written to Hebrews, yet it unfolds truths that are equally important for every Christian.  There are always those who like to argue concerning authorship, or some portion of its contents.  However, as we read its contents and interpret them in light of the other books of the Bible, weContinue reading “GOD HAS SPOKEN”

MORE REPAIRS

Almost twenty ago I entered the hospital with “chest pains”.  Eleven days later, because of multiplied complications, I came home.  The old “ticker” had problems because the arteries around it were “clogged”.  There was need for a quadruple bypass.  Such problems, or their solutions, are quite common these days.

The Psalmist impresses upon our thinking when he says: “GreatContinue reading “GENERATION TO GENERATION”

My uncle got rich on it… he sold it to others.  I lived with an alcoholic; therefore I am alarmed by those who try to convince me that there is nothing wrong with alcohol consumption.  I have counseled couples who have abandoned the deep love they had for each other because they refused to abandonContinue reading “A DRUNKEN STUPOR”
