For Our Nation

War, politics, lies, betrayal, the murdering of innocents, our young men and women in uniform dying on a battle field via men of power; takeovers of nations, riots and lawlessness, sin abounding, the church asleep or complacent for the most part; the gospel diluted, and do we even notice? Through all that is going on … Continue reading For Our Nation

My Whole Being Rejoices

Psalms 16:4-6 ESV “The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips. “The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.

And We are His House If

Hebrews 3:6-15 ESV “But Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.

The story line is this: A woman who worked as a ticket seller at the “L” in Chicago had a secret crush on one of the commuters. He fell … Continue reading Walk Not in the Counsel of the Ungodly

So Be Zealous and Repent

I Know Your Works Revelation 3:14-16 ESV “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation. “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot.

The Chosen

My Thoughts “The Chosen” is a TV series about the life of Jesus Christ. It is fiction, not factual, so not biblical in the purest sense of the word. It is inspired by Scripture, but it takes many liberties with the Scriptures and with the biblical characters, too, particularly with the character of Jesus, the … Continue reading The Chosen
