There’s No Fool Like…

by

Psalm 53  Simply follow the news and you have to wonder, have we lost our minds? Look at the New York abortion bill as but one example. “The fool says in his heart, there is no God” seems to be on full display! Mankind is clearly “broken.” Is there hope?

Old Testament Grace?

by

Psalm 51  Did God change His mind? Were people once saved by keeping the law but now are saved by grace? Isn’t this the “Grace Age”? No, God did not change His mind! He has always been a gracious God. We see it throughout the Old Testament. And David counts on it in this Psalm, Join us this […]

Help in the Nick of Time!

Psalm 46  In the movie “2012,” the Yellowstone volcano blows, destroying the park. Jack Cusack, a hero in the movie, is aboard a small plane trying to outrun the every-growing crevasse splitting the runway behind the plane as it speeds towards takeoff. Miraculously, they survive, due to some spectacular flying skills of the pilot. Have you […]

Life Is Short

Psalm 39  Fifty-two years ago, the Beatles released the song “When I’m Sixty-Four” on their classic album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” I bought that album when it first came out.

I’ll let you judge whether the song was good, annoying, or somewhere in between. So, when he wrote “do not fret” (as most […]

Looking Back, Looking Forward

by

2 Peter 3:18, Philippians 3:14  A few years ago, we planted a silver maple tree in our backyard. It was small enough that I could dig the whole myself and plant the tree. Over the years, it has grown substantially! Meanwhile, the oak tree planted in the front yard by our builders slowly died. We […]

What Did Mary Know?

by

Luke 1:26-38  A popular Christmas song asks the question, “Mary, did you know?” I love questions like this, they force us to place ourselves in the other person’s shoes. of course, how we answer the question is often conjecture, but some we can answer with certainty! Of course, Mary was perplexed and “pondered” these things […]

The Fingers of Prophecy

by

Matthew 1-2  Weird title? Yep! One of the amazing truths about the birth of Christ is how improbable it was yet how inevitable it was. The Bible spoke of His birth (and life, and death, etc.) centuries before the events occurred. Such prophecies confirm that He is, in fact, the promised one and not just another […]
