Why Sin Doesn’t Feel Like A Choice

Even in church the concept of sin gets only vague recognition.  It seems to be more of a theological topic to be debated rather than noted as sheer rebellion spewing from the heart of man.  Before you sense this is a power-fisted rant by a squint-eyed preacher, wait. This is not a rant.  It is […]

What Can Be? 

We have great need today.  It’s always been this way.  That’s why we like discovery. There remains a thirst for breakthrough.  And, often we experience it.  Such reports are exhilarating.  And we want more. James Pollard Espy was eighteen years old.  Still unable to read or write at such an age, he was for some […]

God’s “Start Over” Factor 

How many of us live in what seems to be a self-imposed prison?  On any given day some of us could use that infamous “get out of jail” card.  Some days are tough. A divinely fascinating thing I find to be true of God is that He lives to bring us great rescue; ultimate joy. The grand […]

Generation Gap: Spacious Or Spoof? 

The Bible is clear that when one operates by the mode of comparison that such a person is without understanding (II Cor. 10:12).  If we believe we are doing better or worse compared to another, we are immediately found to be off-base in our grasp of reality. So I ask the question as to whether […]

The New Challenges Before Us 

The challenges before us are ever new and, ironically, always the same.  The young like new.  But as each generation (let me repeat, each) ages, it has a subtle way of crystallizing; fossilizing might be more accurate.  I still recall the family discussion–even mockings away from the table–of one set of my grandparents who refused […]


Here’s what I note about mankind…well…about us.  We are blind to the true good about ourselves.  Before you assume I’m being egocentric, I’m addressing you.  I don’t think that most of you can fathom your own personal wonder. Believers in God are also to be filled to the fullness of God–Ephesians 3:19.  This filling, in […]

Lowly Humility Is The High Way 

Humility is one of the deepest, strongest, most meaningful human entities referenced in Holy Writ.  It  is accurate.  It is powerful.  It is always to be present in all believers. Because we are us, we have tendencies to get on a roll with the latest and greatest need in the Kingdom.  We push, pull, plead, […]

Always Advantaged

Even in our harshest and most frustrating times there is gold in “them thar hills”!  That’s the message of the Bible.  River out of its banks?  God can part it.  Man’s hand withered?  Jesus can make it well.  Son lay dead in a grave?  God can raise him. It does not matter our circumstance.  We are […]

Our Gigantic World Of Possible, Potential, Probable Hope 

God makes a statement in Second Corinthians that astounds me every time I see it…every time.  “Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.”  At age 68 I can verify decay; but only of my outer shell.  The inner me […]

The Conflict Solution

Conflict rages; if not outwardly then this villain will press to reign inwardly.  This is spiritual warfare that many  refuse to acknowledge or address.  Unrest, therefore, rules both our conversations by day and our pillows by night.  The result is severe vulnerability. The battle isn’t regarding others; although we surely live in self-defense by pointing […]
