  • COLUMN: Will you see what God has prepared for you?

    “But it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
    As I look at this verse in the Bible, one thing is for sure, I am going to see what God has prepared for me. One question: are you going to see what God has prepared for you? Many times while speaking in churches and traveling in different states, I have heard many things said from people who claim to be Christian.
    Here are some:

  • COLUMN: Surprise attack

    Many will not realize it, but today is an important day. Many will pass this day without a thought, but somehow it always sticks with me.  Though it happened before I was born, Dec. 7, 1941 is a day that lives in my memory.  

  • COLUMN: Columnist says the Lord is his source for ultimate strength

    I went through the bank windows and had a check made out to my wife and wanted to cash it. The teller told me if I wanted to get it cashed, I would have to sign it, too. Of course it was no big deal, so I signed it. When she brought me the cash, I said, “When we married 52 years ago we became one.”
    In Matthew 19 it says, “We do become one flesh,” when the Pharisees were asking Jesus about putting away your wife.

  • COLUMN: God is the supplier of our needs

    Philippians 4:19 says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Jesus Christ.”
    I was thinking about how good God is and how he supplies all our needs. Now let’s take a look at our needs and wants. We might think we want a big mansion on a high hill and a limousine sitting in the garage and a job that pays $500,000 a year — if I had all this I could live it up.

  • COLUMN: A prayer of Thanksgiving

    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and most of us will gather around dinner tables with family and friends and offer thanks.  We’ll be thankful for our families.  We’ll be thankful for our health.  We’ll give thanks that we have a job.  We may give thanks for a new baby in the family, or even for a new car.  Some will give thanks for the freedoms we share as a nation.  Others may thank God for saving faith and the gift of Jesus.

  • COLUMN: America should heed the warning God gave Israel

    When I was studying 1 Corinthians 10, it laid on my heart because I know people in America are living the same sinful life that Israel was living when Moses led them through the wilderness.
    Even though all were baptized the same way, all eat and drink the same spiritual food and drink, some did not please God.

  • COLUMN: Everyday dangers

    Everyone has had to do it, but I don’t think anyone likes it.  Yes, you’ve done it too! I’m talking about using a public restroom.  Whether you are on the highway or in the mall or even visiting at the hospital, sometimes you just have to visit the facilities.
