Jesus and God’s Word

In a recent post I shared the importance of Jesus' statement, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4 [ESV], quoted from Deuteronomy 8:3). The Word of God is the first [...]

Man Shall Not Live by Krispy Kremes® Alone

"Peter, you'd better explain yourself." Well, I can better paraphrase the text as "Man shall not live by Praise and Worship alone." I want to emphasize the truth as applicable to today's expression of the church. In fact, you could replace any object and the truth [...]

Ephesians is loaded with truth, and there is just one word that I want to focus on to amplify the title above. But first, let's look at the "address on the envelope." Ephesians was definitely written to Christians: "to the saints who are in Ephesus, [...]

Jump and Trust the Parachute

The fourth lesson from the Great Physician is found in the stilling of the storm on the Sea of Galilee in Matthew 8:18,23-27. The same incident is also recorded in Mark 4:35-41 and Luke 8:22-25. "Now when Jesus saw a crowd around him, he gave [...]

Mothers-in-law

I was fortunate in that I had a good mother-in-law. While I saw her quite often when my wife and I were courting, after our marriage we moved 1680 miles away (2690 km) for eight years, and almost any mother-in-law is good at that [...]
