The Greatest Miracle

by Ladd

Do you believe in miracles? What surprises me is how many people dismiss God working in the world of the supernatural simply because they don’t believe such things as miracles can occur. Duh! That’s why we call them miracles. I recently finished a very interesting and informative book on the Exodus, but I was disappointed […]

I apologize for the sporadic posts. Ruth and I have been away a fair amount this spring and early summer, but hope to get on schedule of posting every two or three days from now on in. I also want to thank all of you who read the blog on a regular basis. It is […]

First Take the Log Out of Your Eye…

How many times have we heard the admonition to hate the sin but love the sinner? But that is the opposite of what Jesus really tells us in Scripture. He says hate the sin but also hate the sin in your own life. When we have taken the log out of our own eye then […]

The key to understanding 1 John is to remember chapter three verse twenty-three, “And this is His commandment, that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as He has commanded us.” So what is the commandment that we are to keep according to the Epistle of […]

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love […]

The fact that God loves you unconditionally is a life-changing concept. God doesn’t love you because you are good or have lived up to His standards. He knows you can never do that. He loves you simply because He does. Peter tells us, “Cast all your anxieties upon Him for He cares about you.” 1 […]
