Joh 13.35 +

Joh 13.35

“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples

if ye have love one to another.”

“The whole futuristic idea of locating the antichrist

in some militarist is unscriptural…”
– L L Pickett

You can “take a stand” (even look half-way “heroic”) but take it on a minor, even moot point. God needs pastors & evangelists who KNOW where they stand on major points, who KNOW why they stand there & who WILL BE STANDING there when all burns around them. Oh, God, give us men – to quote Uncle Buddy “With backbones like a ‘thawlog’.” – 8/1/22

“Partial obedience

is really no obedience.”

– Paul Pierpoint

You’ll be remembered at your funeral/memorial service. I speak not necessarily of eulogies. What will siblings recall (good or ill) about you? A child? A grandchild? And you’ll come to this one’s mind or that, in the next months after your death. For what will you be remembered? Your humor? Your pessimism? A love for animals? A far higher love for God? “He could really whistle” or “Oh, how he could pray.” You are *now doing something for which you may be remembered. Mind God! – 8/8/22


Down through the valleys, up o’er the hills

The next one may be deeper, next hill hold more thrills

The secret is keep moving, at trot, or at trod

Walk daily with Jesus o’er rock, sand, or sod.

God Knows

God, Who is always right

Knows when man does wrong.

Though man tries to cover his sin

With rite after rite and a “song.”

– eab, 8/10/15

God wants a CURRENT relationship with you. When’s the last time you slipped into His presence in sweet communion? Story was told of a man & wife in earlier days (old cars held three persons in the front seat) riding down the road. She looked over from the far passenger side & said, “We didn’t use to ride like this.” He responded from behind the steering wheel, “I haven’t moved.” Friend, if you & God are not as close as you used to be, allow a reminder GOD HAS NOT MOVED. Draw nigh to God. – 8/10/22

1Ti 4.12

“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers

in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

“All the power & wisdom & cunning of satan will be exercised

to secure your defeat. He hates a holy man.”

– J M Pike

Every woman was born a virgin. And every woman who is not one now (& whose mind is clear) knows exactly when she purposely gave away this wonderful God-given gift – on her Wedding Night or – – – sadly if she threw this precious gift away in sinful madness, failing to understand its great moral value. Dad/Mom, it’s your responsibility (above any other human) to emphasis to your daughter HOW important her virginity is. Once *trashed away it’s gone for life. Raise her right – you only have “today.” – 8/10/22

“You’ll be someone,

somewhere for eternity.”

– Winfield Poe
