WILL I FIND FAITH ON EARTH?

Today I’d like to draw attention to something Jesus spoke in Luke 18:1-8, which seems to many to be contradictory in its nature:
1  And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Continue Reading »

ONCE UPON A TIME

Once upon a time you could tell a Christian from someone who was not.   A Christian was positive, usually had a smile on their face, and a kind word no matter what their circumstances were.  They were absolutely upright in everything they did.  But these days, Christians seem to be going “undercover”, blending in so well with non-Christians that it is becoming hard to know the difference.  Driving down the road yesterday, at the posted speed limit, I saw a car fly by me so fast I could barely read the “Follow me to church” bumper sticker as they disappeared in the distance.  Wow! I guess they couldn’t wait to get to church….. Continue Reading »

IN ALL THINGS GIVE THANKS

Ever have one of those days that just doesn’t go the way you planned?  Today I was on my way to Oklahoma to a ministry conference, and my vehicle started vibrating badly like the driveshaft was out of balance.  It seemed like at any moment it might come out of there and pass me.  So my trip was interrupted to spend the night at a hotel out of town.  Hopefully it will be a simple and inexpensive repair, and I’ll be back on my way tomorrow.  Funny thing, most of the day a song has been going through my mind, “And in all things give Him thanks…..” Yeah, I guess that means even when your vehicle breaks.  Don’t get me wrong: I’m not thankful FOR the trouble, but I’m thankful IN the trouble.  Maybe it’s just a test.  Maybe it’s the devil trying to aggravate me, but I’m going to aggravate him back by praising God.  And if it isn’t the devil behind it, that’s ok, I’m going to praise God anyway, because it’s the right thing to do.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

We hear so much about “blessings”.  What exactly are they, and whom do they pertain to, and how do we get them?  After all, we want to be blessed, right?  Well, the Old Testament talks a lot about blessings, and God always tells us in His Word, that His blessings are for those who are diligent to obey His Voice.  Here is just a small sampling of blessings from Deuteronomy 28:1-14: Continue Reading »

HAVE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE SABBATH

There is a story in John chapter 5 about a man who was sick for thirty eight years, and Jesus met him on the Sabbath.  The Bible doesn’t tell us exactly what the sickness was, or how he ended up with it, only that Jesus loosed him from that burden on the Sabbath.  Let’s read about it here: Continue Reading »
