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”

HAZARD OR HAVEN

One of our returns to my homeland, the Island of Bermuda, produced much by way of reflection.  As the plane began its descent, the Captain announced the arrival time in Bermuda to be in approximately thirty minutes.  As the minutes slipped by, we were aware of the color changes in the ocean.  We viewed theContinue reading “HAZARD OR HAVEN”

TO WHOM SHALL WE GO

Those words appear in John 6:68.  The context makes them stand out significantly, for Jesus had been attracting crowds who were listening to each word that He spoke, with many giving indication that they were so captivated that it was their intention of becoming one of His disciples.

Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?’ Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unlessContinue reading “ONE CAN/CAN’T BE HOLY IN A HURRY”

READY TO THROW A STONE

Many are they who though unable to remember much of what the Scriptures say, are adept at recalling this story in John 8. Here we have another effort on the part of the Scribes and the Pharisees to entrap Jesus. To agree with those who supported this law would bring disagreement with those who opposedContinue reading “READY TO THROW A STONE”

BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN

“And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” John 21:25 I cannot say for certain, but in all probability, I was recommended to read the Gospel of John asContinue reading “BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN”
