  • Jesus holds the key

    Not long ago, I was stuck on an elevator. It reached the floor I wanted, but the door wouldn’t open. After a long day, I just wanted to get to my hotel room and call it a day. Instead, I spent the next 45 minutes trapped, just waiting for someone to get me out of that little box. Someone had to come with a key to get me safely out of the elevator.

  • The world is ending! Now what?

    What would you do if you knew the world was going to end at 7 p.m. this evening? What would you be doing at say 6:45? Would you be bargaining with God? Would you simply put on your saintly smile? Would you be asking friends for forgiveness? In other words, how would you be living the rest of your time here on earth?

  • Does God still speak to us today?

    Does God still speak to us today? Does he have a master plan? These are important questions in life. We want to know things like: What will I do with my life? Who will I marry? And what is my purpose in life? These are similar questions addressed last week. And while this issue is more than I can do justice in just a couple of columns, I hope to give you enough Scripture where you can pursue this on your own.

  • Heed speed bumps

    Speed bumps can be annoying. But they also remind us to slow down, keeping pedestrians and even other drivers safe. While we may drive around them if we can, we usually realize how helpful they are.

  • Know the will of God

    Does God still speak to us today? Does he have a master plan? These are important questions in life. We want to know things like: What will I do with my life? Who will I marry? Why am I overweight? Okay, that last one was a little personal, but you get the idea. In the broad sense, yes, God does still speak people today and yes, he does have a plan for your life.

  • Losing the personal touch in a modern world

    I carry a cellphone with me, most people do these days. In fact many of us carry smart phones. I think mine is probably smarter than I am.

    I’m not really sure why we even call them phones anymore. One recent survey listed making phone calls as the fifth most popular use, behind texting and surfing the internet and a few other things. A recent smartphone was unveiled with all its bells and whistles, but nobody even mentioned whether it was a good phone or not.
