Time is at hand

Usually when you get a few years under your belt you see things differently. As King Solomon says, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” The only thing that changes is time itself but the sun continue to rise and set,…

FEAR

If you belong to God then you should know that there is no power in all of creation that stands above God? Whatever you might be frightened about more than likely is afraid of God because absolutely nothing exists beyond what God allows in His creation. He always watches over those whom He calls His…

The Preeminence of Christ

As a Christian writer it is important for me to make my affiliation known to those whom might read some of my writings. I know that I do not write for everyone alike. Some do not follow or believe in Christ, our Lord and Savior. So in essence this essay is for those who believe.…

Less of me…More of You

I’m not sure everyone has this problem but it appears that I have an oversized ego. It is not that I flaunt it as much as that I feel it in my bones. I have a need to be right, to have things go my way, or to be critical of others that don’t operate…

The Good Shepherd

In John 10:27 Christ said: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” Unfortunately not all people, especially in modern times, can understand some of the examples that Christ used in His many sermons and lessons.

The Enemy Inside

Without making this subject even more complicated than it is I will speak of it in common terms. We battle with ourselves over both large and small things daily. It could be over something as simple as to which pair of shoes to wear, what to have for a meal, or even deeper, should I…

Love IS

One of my favorite passages from the New Testament writings of Apostle Paul is in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. In just four brief passages he defines one of the most precious substances in the universe…love. He uses only a few words that speak volume about such an important subject. As a man well into my…

Living in Darkness

“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that…
