One thing we have in common is that we both have a sense of humor leaning toward puns and groaners. You’ve endured plenty of my groaners through ...read more

    When I was a kid, my TV hero was Superman. I, and every other kid on the block, zoomed through the neighborhood with a cape (towel) around our shoulders as we fought the bad guys. Superman was so cool!

    In the Nick-of-Time! Text: 1 Corinthians 10:13 Timing is God's, not ours. We tend to be impatient because of our view of the tough circumstances with which we are dealing.

    When we experience new life in Jesus Christ we might think a change in our external appearance, position, or circumstances will make us more useful to the Master. But you might just miss out on one of the greatest opportunities available to you.

    Last time we talked about how some in Corinth, especially women who were just experiencing new freedoms in the body of Christ, thought it best to divorce their pagan husbands, or remain celibate in marriage in order to be better Christians.

    God's bleak message of certain judgment continues as Ezekiel describes the basis for judgement, the certainty of judgment, and the completeness of this judgment. A bleak, doom and gloom text reminds us of the holiness of God.

    Ezekiel’s proclamation from the Lord in chapter 7 is one of the strongest prophetic messages ever offered. It is a message of sure and certain judgment that is no longer something that is coming—but something that has arrived. This message is something of a summary of the message of ...read more
