“But You Promised …”

“For all the promises of God find their Yes in Him.  That is why it is through Him that we utter our Amen to God for His glory.” (2 Corinthians 1:20, ESV) It happens more than any parent would care to admit.  We make the mistake of promising our kids more than we can deliver. […]

Immunity …

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”  (John 17:3, NKJV) Some words have the ability to capture our attention immediately, while other words may take longer to do so … and the fact is, there are many words that we are […]

Would You Step In?

“And as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a […]

The Perfect Father

“In this manner, therefore, pray:  Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. “ (Matthew 6:9, NKJV) He was the coolest dad in the neighborhood where we grew up.  When we wanted to play whiffle ball … he converted his backyard into a miniature ball field complete with a backstop, foul poles, and lights!  We […]

Now The Challenge …

“For to this, you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in His steps.  He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth.  When He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but continued […]
