The Word

John 18. 4 – 6

“Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, ‘Whom seek ye?’

They answered him, ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ Jesus saith unto them, ‘I am he.’

And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, ‘I am he,’ they went backward, and fell to the ground.”

John-the-Baptist was not popular (his powerful, pointed preaching brought him prison and death)


Never mellow your holy message to suit compromising middle-of-the-roaders.

Spring sprung

Spring sprung,

Summer sunned,

Fall fell,

Winter won.

Another year complete,

Where seasons meet.

If the only clothes you possess

are work clothes, God is not in the least offended when you wear the best and cleanest of these to His house. If, on the other hand, you purposely “dressed down,” do not be surprised to find He recorded this action. After all, you are coming into the Presence of ROYALTY: *Richer *Higher, *Purer, and more *Powerful that any human, still on earth, can possibly grasp.

Holy Ladies

“I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…” (Rom 1.18) NOR am I ashamed of the holy mothers, sisters, and daughters with their uncut, simple hair and their plain, modest dresses without sparkle, sequins, or flash. The wearing of “…gold or pearls or costly array” (1Ti 2.9) is not limited to rings or necklace (Hint: it’s not “wrong ‘cause it’s round”). Holy ladies (or sensible sinners, for that matter) do not need tinselry or glitter on their dresses, nor gold in their hair.

He ended up in a pig pen.

How did all this begin?

Were wine, women, and song

The start of his wrong?

No.  “His way” was his first sin.

(Luk 15.12)

Are you a ten-talented man?

Thank God, keep busy, and do not shirk great responsibility. Are you a five-talented man? Be grateful, use your talents, don’t dodge responsibility. Are you a one-talented man? Give God thanks, work the talent, and fulfill responsibility. The multitude-talent man could wish for a lighter load – don’t. God knows what you can do. Do it. The one-talented man looks (if he’s not careful) at a five talent guy and covets. Don’t do that either. Each man is His Lord’s trusted servant. He didn’t misguide anyone.

The man who recognizes his Lord’s wisdom and loves His wisdom, can be fulfilled and content.
