John 12:42-43 “Many people did believe in him, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear; for they loved human praise more than the praise of God.” Some things never change, I wonder how many pastors and church leaders feel the same fear today. They refuse to speak the truth… Read more »

Now That I’m Old

Now that I am old there is one thing I can say with confidence, that when I look back in my life I can see the hand of God. He has protected, provided, and given me the desires of my heart. THANK YOU LORD! Psalm 108:13 With God’s help we will do mighty things. Exodus… Read more »

Eyes on JESUS!

Matthew 14:27-31 “Jesus spoke to them at once. ‘Don’t be afraid,’ he said. ‘Take courage. I am here!’ Then Peter called to him, L’ord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.’ ‘Yes, come,’ Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the… Read more »

Government vs. We The People

Short term solutions always have long time consequences. What do I mean? Think of any solution the government has come up that we are not paying the consequences for today in all sorts of ways. Almost 2/3 of our taxes are to pay for short term solutions (unconstitutional entitlements) of the past, throwing money it… Read more »

What Really Changes People

Faithful and True

Promises given by Jesus to His church. Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are… Read more »
