Rom 12.2

“…Be not conformed to this world: but

be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”


“This world is not my home, I’m just a-passing through

My treasures are laid up, Somewhere beyond the blue.

The angels beckon me, From heaven’s open door

And I can’t feel at home, In this world anymore.” – Jim Reeves (song we used to sing)

*Whether you are for Trump or against him please, PLEASE remember the above words!*


“Faith…that mysterious hand by which the holy soul clings to God amid temptation

and so is kept from sin.”

– R S Foster, /Christian Perfection/


Church is a bit like a restaurant. The Pastor is the “cook” & serves up well prayed/well prepared meals or opens a “canned sermon.” The people create the “setting/atmosphere.” Folks will travel miles to eat with a view: mountain scene, beach, etc. though the meal may be so-so. Or people will drive a distance to taste the creations of a “cook” though the atmosphere is not great. The best is a combination of great “cooking” & friendly, praying people. Hope you have a good “restaurant.”

Greatest Builder vs G C

Men will trust a fellow-man

To build a “dream home” to his plan;

So wide; so long; made of such.

Provided “turn key” for $o much.

They discuss, then walk away

To return some pleasant, future day

Fully expecting their house to be

Created, completed, specifically!

Oh, how much more to trust the Son

Who’s gone away to prepare us one.

One. Fine. Home. Beyond that star

It’ll exceed expectations so very far

Unlike a mortal building “G. C.”

Christ will add details up to the “T.”

Personal tastes? He knows how to please

Sparing nothing – and – done without fee$.

Enjoy your home here with your kin,

But live so clean and holy within,

That you’ll be able soon to own a

Mansion by the Greatest Builder ever known.

Joh 3.36

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life…”


  1. Awakened – we have to be Awakened to our sinful condition before we can be
  2. Born again – only way into Christ’s Kingdom is to be Born into it; then we’re in position to
  3. Consecrate – and let Him fill us with His Holy Spirit.

“…The world by professing Christianity is so far from being a less dangerous enemy than it was before, that it has by its favors destroyed more Christians than ever it did by the most violent persecution.”

– Wm Law, /Serious Call…/


There was a past day when many of us heard, “Act your age.” Why is it that many now do not what to look their age? Medical attention is given to remove a wrinkle or two, color is placed on hair (beard/stash?) to look less aged, some may even try dressing like their kids? These do NOT stop aging!
