No Room for Them

"There was no room for them in the inn" (Luke 2:7). As Christmas day brings us around to the blessed story of the Savior's birth, it reminds us of a circumstance connected with that event which still is timely in its application. When Joseph and [...]

“When Prayer Fails, Try Praise.” Really?

Sometimes phrases just stand out on my screen and almost shout at me to think about them. These are "Really?" moments, and the title was one of these. Every day I look through a list of ebooks under the broad umbrella of "Christianity." Usually there [...]

Fully-functioning Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony” (Hebrews 11:1-2). It is obvious from an examination of the Bible record, both in the Old and the New Testament, that [...]

A Reluctant God?

I read on Facebook recently a post from a minister I have personally known for 50 years, who has been told by his physician that he is dying after a four-year battle with disease. I pray that he will recover. In one of 500+ comments [...]

Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!

The above title, "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!" is taken from a Broadway musical that was popular in the United States in the 1960s and revived in the 1980s. It concluded with the song "What Kind of Fool Am I?". The title [...]
