1Sa 17.45

David…“Thou comest to me with a sword & with a spear & with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”


“We can have revival if we can be trusted.”

– Glenn Griffith


Every pastor should love his congregation (large or small) but he needs to love God more. His deeper, higher, broader love for God will enable him to preach things to his congregation which he doesn’t necessarily want to preach to them but he will & does, because he loves his people & because of his greater love for the God & Father of them all. – 2/27/20


“If we are so unfortunate as to not go to the mission field

 we better have a representative there.”

– E G Garrett



If men can make bridge-halves start

From opposite river banks

And with blueprint, I-beamed steel

Labor, rivets and welding tanks

Meet them over raging streams,


God can bring marriage halves

From divorcement’s cold shore

And with Heavenly blueprint, Love

And will power, join them once more

Renewing the home’s lost dreams.

“In each expanded edition of his /Institutes/ Calvin quotes

& relies upon Augustine more than ever.”

Fliers, newspaper ads, magazine advertisements, radio/TV commercials & face book trailers, tell us how much we NEED “x.” It will cause us “to lose weight, be more attractive, look younger, act smarter, win friends, be charming, earn more money” List-goes-on-&-on. A few of you have turned a deaf ear but many more need to. Paul urges “…having food & raiment let us be therewith content”(1Ti 6.8). If this seems heavy let me encourage you with this – the same Paul says he “learned…to be content”(Php 4.11). – 2/28/20


Mat 25.10

“…While they went to buy, the bridegroom came &

 they that were ready went in with him to the marriage & the door was shut.”


The year was 1961, the month, June, date, the 30th and the hour, 7:00 PM. Someone reached over & locked the door & he was shut out. He’d driven a long distance. I never knew if he got a late start or was caught in traffic but he was too late for his pretty niece’s wedding. He was busy man. He was an important man. He was the medical doctor of his community. But he arrived to a locked church door. Oh, Friend the Bible speaks “the door was shut”(Mat 25.10). I beg of you – don’t have “more important” things to do. Don’t get caught in traffic. Be ready of the Most Important Wedding of Heaven & Earth. – 2/29/20


“The ripping in two of the Temple veil as Christ gave up His spirit

signified that He had accomplished what the Old Testament had prophesied.”
