The Greatest Miracle

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 […]

“John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Luke 3:16 The “John” in our verse is John the Baptist, cousin of Jesus Christ, […]

God is good. The are three simple words but so many people in our culture refuse to believe. They believe, if they believe anything at all concerning the possibility of God, that He is actually quite evil. They figure if He is all-good and all-powerful then why doesn’t He do something to alleviate the pain […]

Some days are just perfect and last Sunday was one of those days. Three wonderful ladies were baptized in a pristine lake under the watchful eye of a beautiful old rustic cabin. The sun shone hot, the lake breeze kept it cool and the fellowship was amazing. As each of the ladies was baptized I […]

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth,” John 17:17.  The gospel of John lays a heavy emphasis upon “truth,” and is one of the most important themes that runs throughout the book. In John 6:28-29 we read, “Then they asked Him, ‘What must we do to do the works God requires?’ Jesus answered, […]

At our Bible study last night we got into an interesting discussion on promptings of the Holy Spirit. When we sense that God is speaking to us, “how do we really know it’s God” was one of the questions we grappled with over hot cider. How do you know when the prompting is just your […]

Hermeneutics are the basic principles on how we interpret and study the Bible. These hermeneutics are foundational to understanding the texts of the Scripture in a cohesive and intelligent way. The problem numerous Christians get into when studying the Bible is they don’t have an understanding of the clear rules that apply to Bible study […]

Wednesday’s Bible Study was one of those magical times when everything you’ve planned for the evening gets pushed aside and the Holy Spirit takes over.

Day eight for my cold and this is the first day that I feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel. I went to the doctor Tuesday and he pronounced me to have a viral infection that will just have to run its course. He did inform me, however, that even after […]
