Ephesians 2:8-9 For most of us, the packages are unwrapped. We’ve exchanged some of the gifts for the right sizes or colors. Perhaps some of the toys are already broken and the tree is down. Christmas is over and we are rapidly approaching a new year. Of course, we can enjoy the gifts we received […]
Galatians 4:4 A few years ago, Debbie and I took a cruise to Alaska.

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 Okay, not exactly true. I never did work on the railroad. But Paul addresses the idea of “work” in 1 Thessalonians (and as few other places, too). In fact, he says he commanded his readers to work. Does the Bible really address something as mundane as “work?” Absolutely! And it says some […]
1 Thessalonians 4:1-8 It is embarrassing or at least difficult to talk about. But it shows up in TV shows, movies, advertisements, news stories, and music with great regularity.
