Secure in Father’s House

I do not live in Mayberry or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, but I still like my neighborhood. I have only lived here for a short while, but I have gotten to know some of the neighbors and people and businesses close by.  As an extrovert I tend to say hello, good morning, or good evening to […]

The Violent Take it by Force; an open letter to the church

Most of us would not hesitate to defend a helpless person. If we see an elderly person fall down we would help them up. Or if we see a small child alone and lost in a city street, we would stop and call the authorities; it would be impossible for us to turn a blind […]

The Most Unusual Place: a short story

Her reflection in the mirror showed a tired woman. Her skin was blotchy, pale and discolored with dark circles under her eyes; dull brown hair replaced a once thick and glowing crown. She looked at herself as if looking at a stranger. There was barely any resemblance to the woman she was in her youth. […]

Are You Saved? Really?

  The pastor at a church I visited yesterday gave a really good message. I will paraphrase because this is a truth we must not ignore. There are so many who think they are saved, or “Christian,” merely because they said a prayer, or because they attend church. This is a great deception. I fear […]

In Light of Eternity

I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]— From where shall my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Jesus emptied Himself for us. Yet, we keep trying to get more. More stuff, more stuff, more stuff… When we take our focus off the world, then […]

Does God Know You?

There are many who claim they know God. Jesus, Himself, said in Matthew 7  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day [when I judge them], ‘Lord, Lord, have […]

For such a time as this

There is a reason we do not die and immediately go to Heaven when we accept Christ. There is a reason why we, as Believers, are here on this earth, in all this craziness. There is a reason why you have been born into the family you have been born into, why you live where […]

Who is God the Father to you?

If I ask you, who is God the Father to you, you may have different answers and may even find it easy to answer.  But, if I ask you who are you to God the Father, I think, maybe, we would hear some crickets. We see the greatness of God, we read His Word and […]
