Rage

 “Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:1-3) The Psalmist asks a probing question: “Why do […]

Shame On Us!

I am not what I ought to be, but thank God I’m not what I used to be.  First Lady, Melania Trump spoke last night from the Rose Garden at the White House. She was elegant and measured in her speech which stands out remarkably from so much of the political rhetoric of the hour. […]

We Are Doing It All Wrong

We’ve Been Doing It Wrong. I had a revelation this morning. Just before our morning worship service began a realization struck me in a very powerful way. So often, as Christ-followers, we fail to recognize the simplest truths––even if they are right in front of us. A simple comment made to me caused me to […]

The Fourth Man in the Fire

  King Nebuchadnezzar was in an absolute rage when he was informed that three Jewish men, to whom he had entrusted much power, refused to worship him or his gods. He had them dragged before his throne whereupon he threatened them with a terrible death; to be burned alive in a great furnace. Still, the […]

Brothers . . . behave!

We hosted two of our fourteen grandkids for a sleepover last night. We love all of our kids––and all of their kids––with all of our hearts. God has blessed us with a family that is close, tight-knit and following Christ. We could hardly ask for more. Yet, with two rambunctious five-year-old cousins in the house, […]

Fig Leaves

  CNN’s Don Lemon recently made the outrageous claim that Jesus Christ “admittedly was not perfect” when he was on earth.  During a discussion about the shortcomings of the Founding Fathers on Monday night with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo, Lemon said, “Here’s the thing: Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus […]

Our Elder Brother

  Jesus is our elder brother. We are family—the family of God. And like Jesus, we have a role to play. A plan to discover. A purpose to fulfill. Jesus was born into human flesh to complete a great work that was crafted just for him. There was no other who could do it. He […]

Snakes Do What Snakes Do

  America continues to be torn apart over issues of racial violence and inequality. I hear howling about how the ancestors of African-Americans were once slaves to white men. This is true, this is barbaric, and there needs to be continued repentance for the oppression of not only black men and women, but Irish and […]

"Woke"

I have been assailed by a horde of white “woke” folks this week who have confidently instructed me that I clearly don’t understand, and most certainly don’t care about the victims of racial inequality in America––implying that I need to be more “woke.” This is my response to that accusation:   Abortion is the number […]

AN URGENT APPEAL

  What is inconvenient for some is a disaster for others. The Deaf community in Kenya has been economically devastated by the COVID 19 pandemic. Families are hungry with no way to obtain food.  As many of my friends are aware, I have been deeply involved in ministry to the Deaf in Kenya for almost […]
