Unceasing Prayer

August 1, 2022

There are times when you see directives in the Bible that you just think are impossible, so you just feel like not even trying. One example is the call for unceasing prayer. Like all texts in the Bible, it’s best to get the context, so please note: 1 Thessalonians 5:12–25 (ESV) — 12 We ask […]

The Value Of Strain

July 25, 2022

There is a sense of longing for paradise in which there will be no more disappointment or even strain. But this world is not paradise, so we groan or strain. Romans 8:18–23 (ESV) — 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to […]

Making Each Day Count

June 27, 2022

In order to get the most out of each day we need to view each day as a gift from God and do our best to make it count. Consider what Moses wrote in Psalm 90 as he led the children of Israel on their journey to the promised land. Psalm 90:9–12 (ESV) — 9 […]

Resisting Change

June 20, 2022

Change is never easy because we are creatures of comfort and when we get comfortable with things as they are, even if they are not where they could be or should be, we resist change. We may hear the preacher point out by God’s word that a change in life is necessary and we will […]

Have you ever noticed how angry people are today? It seems everyone is at the boiling point and ready to spue out angry words, gestures, and actions. So how can we deal with this thing called anger?
