The Cross of Christ

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16 This Sunday we will be looking at Mark’s account of the crucifixion. Sadly, it is often only at Eastertide that we stop to…

Work

“For by him [Christ Jesus] all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” When I glanced at my calendar this…

Dear Brothers and Sisters

So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us. (1 Thessalonians 2:8) As I arrive at our denomination’s General Assembly, I have already encountered a number of dear friends, all of whom…

June

“Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness” (Acts 14:17).      Ah, June. I am always excited to see it come, though the month seems to arrive sooner and sooner every year I grow older.…

Memorial Day

“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side – let Israel now say – if it had not been the Lord who was on our side when people rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; then the flood would have swept us away,…

Discipline

“Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hand heals.” (Job 5:17-18)      I never got to hear the words that many of my friends heard growing up. “Wait until your father gets home.” No, it…

Plumbing the Depths

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?’ ‘Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?’ For from him and through…

The God of All Comfort

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction,…

Friendship

“Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel. Do not forsake your friend and your father’s friend, and do not go to your brother’s house in the day of your calamity.” (Proverbs 27:9-10) In 1978, Andrew Gold wrote a song, “Thank You for Being a…

A Time To Laugh

“A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed…All the days of the afflicted are evil, but the cheerful of heart has a continual feast…The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and good news refreshes the bones.” (Prov. 15:13, 15, 30) The Preacher in Ecclesiastes reminds us…
