Luther ++++++++

Luther Quote

“A woman is, or at least should be, a friendly, courteous and merry companion in life…”

Table Talk, p.300


If your desire to be a “preacher/teacher” of the Word is stronger than your desire to be dead to the world and to be 100% alive unto Christ – You are enamored by a Position, more than a love for the Person of God’s Son.

Bent metal in free flow and form

With an internal combustion “mill,”

Has interested many a man or boy

With its style or squeal-tire storm

Watching, hearing it, gave a thrill.


Cars whether customized or fast,

May not have or hold your attraction.

What worldly thing has brought you equal joy?

Riveted you in present or past,

Grabbed your time and attention?


Man and his fine female, life’s mate,

Travel, scrimp, even have small strife,

Fascinated by small or larger toy,

And sadly find out when its too late,

Tinsel and fluff stole their whole life.


Stop! Eternity calls us soon –

Heaven’s hope or hell’s dread await,

Don’t be fooled by any devilish decoy,

Do far more than hunt or be a loon,

Think honestly – it’s a good trait.


Full salvation – yours and others

Can be real, if you repent now.

True, holy living you can now enjoy.

Your present act may save your brothers,

Bible reading will tell you how.


God does not hate fast or neat cars;

Many a hobby is not sin.

But metals or man-made alloy,

Can’t compare with life beyond the stars,

The heaven – God would like you in.

“Make-up”? What are you making up FROM? Seriously? Was the God-provided-color not enough? What are you making up TO? Are you making up to please the falseness of our fallen, fleeting culture?

“When a man is not really right he’d rather not meet the true prophet of God.”

– V O Agan, message 2/12/98


The Bible will be more interesting when you know the Author.

and MOST interesting when you can call the Author, “Father” (and LOVE Him as such)!

Psa 126. 5 – 6

“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

“He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves.”


Hearing bad news is a way of comparing ourselves, i.e. feeling “good” that we’re not as “bad” as the guy/gal in the news. By contrast the Good News (Gospel) shows us how bad we really are – – – and how much we need Christ.
