How Good Must You Be For God to Love You?

2/16/2018
More
“How good must you be for God to love you?” Ever have that question come to your mind? Recently it came to the mind of a listener who wrote and asked if God performs plastic surgery of the heart to take away the scars of childhood. The listener told of being born to parents who didn’t love her, so they gave her up for adoption. The adopting parents told her, if you are good, we will love you. She went to church and got the message, “If you are good, God will love you and take you to heaven...

How Can You Know You Are In Love?

2/15/2018

When I was in college and my roommate started dating, it was easy to tell when he fell in love. For one thing, he walked around glassy-eyed and his nose actually turned red. We also knew that something was going on when he stood in front of Judy’s picture for hours at a time making strange sighing noises.

The Choice to Love

2/12/2018
More
There’s nothing like love. It’s a powerful force that changes humans. Both young and old caught up in its tide are rendered unable to think clearly or even think much at all. There may be some truth to the saying, “No one falls in love by choice, it is by chance. No one stays in love by chance, it is by work. And no one falls out of love by chance, it is by choice.”

How to Be Holy

2/9/2018

Some 239,000 miles in space lies the amorphous chunk of rocks and minerals we call the moon. Unlike the sun which is a boiling mass of gases and fire, the moon is cold and dark. It’s lifeless, yet who would be convinced of that fact on a night when the full radiance of the sun is reflected from it to our world? But the light of the moon is only a reflection which comes from a far more powerful source, the sun.

What is Holiness?

2/8/2018
More
A generation ago, Dr. Harry Ironside wrote a book entitled, Holiness: The True and the False. Ironside hit upon an important truth–people always counterfeit the real thing. Trying to reproduce the characteristics of holiness without understanding the nature of the real thing, though, is much like counterfeiting money: it’s fraudulent and a practice which can get you into a lot of trouble.

Too Far Away

Cartoonist Bob Thaves pictured a couple sitting in front of their television, cans of beer in their hands, junk food at their elbows. The caption reads: “There is no problem with your set. The rubbish you see on the screen is real. Please adjust your standards downward.”

Mary’s Choice

It’s a very good thing that Jesus Christ was not born in China, or in Japan, or even in the United States, for that matter. Why? Because there is a very high probability that he might not have lived to birth. In the countries I just mentioned, the rate of abortion versus live births would have made his birth problematic.

Should You Say It?

2/5/2018
More
It’s an old story but one that still brings a chuckle: Three preachers were at a conference, and prompted by a message on “besetting sins,” late one evening the three began to reveal some of their secret flaws. One said that his besetting sin was that he enjoyed an occasional drink. Naturally, he explained, he didn’t like folks in his congregation knowing about it so he was quite discreet in his drinking.

Comfort for the Troubled Heart

2/1/2018

When the Dutch woman, Corrie ten Boom was a prisoner of the Germans, confined in a concentration camp where most prisoners were executed, there were times when she would say, “Lord Jesus, I know this problem is way too big for you; I’ll have to worry about it myself!” Then she would smile and say, “How foolish!” The reality is that we are often confronted with issues that are troubling and we struggle with them as though there is no help from heaven and the burden is much too great for God...

Silence: In the Age of Noise

2/1/2018

If you should pick up a copy of a newly published book by Erling Kagge, you would find a drab, monochrome cover imprinted with only the title of the book, a subtitle and the author’s name. The title: “Silence!” The sub-title, “In the age of noise,” and the author, Erling Kagge. And like myself, you may be asking yourself, “And who is Erling Kagge and why did he write the book?”

Napalm Girl: The Untold Story

If you ever saw her picture, you surely would remember it for the rest of your life. It gained notoriety in the 1970s as an antiwar icon when a photographer took her picture as she was running naked from a napalm attack in Vietnam.[1] The 9-year old girl whose picture was so riveting became known as the “Napalm Girl,” and the picture appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world. As an adult, writing of the horrible and devastating event, Kim Phuc said, “I had not been targeted. I...

When No One is Watching

C.S. Lewis, the author of Mere Christianity and a host of other significant books, said, “Integrity means doing the right thing even if no one is watching you!” Before him, by almost 400 years, the English playwright, William Shakespeare, said, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

The Meaning of Integrity

Your reputation is what people think of you; your character is what God knows you to be, the mental and moral qualities that are distinctive to an individual. Someone once said that you can easily judge the character of a person by how he or she treats those who can do nothing in return–how he treats those who are not in a position to retaliate or reciprocate.

Why Your Pastor Needs Prayer

1/26/2018
More
“Pastors need prayer, too,” contends Will Bruce in an article by the same title. The following is what he wrote, which I consider so important that, with his permission, I’ll share it with you. “We expect our pastors to take prayer interest in our problems and needs. Rightly so…. But who prays for his needs? He is human too and he needs our prayer…. A delegation of American pastors asked Charles Spurgeon the secret for his success. In response, Spurgeon led them to the lower level of his...

When the Worst Happens

There is a line from a song which goes, “If the Lord be willing, and the creek don’t rise.” While it was neither an English major nor a theologian who wrote those lines, it does bring a powerful question into focus: “To what extent does God will that the creek not rise?” And there’s a second, “Why doesn’t God stop it when the creek turns into a river which turns into a flood?”

The Beauty of Holiness

1/24/2018
More
One of the differences which distinguish man from lower forms of life is that man, made in the image of God, worships a god who is greater than he. Worship is a universal act of adoration no matter where men and women are, no matter what their culture or background. The worship of the true God begins when sinful man encounters a holy, righteous God.

Our Response to God

A young man invested his life savings in a new Ferrari sports car, and having made the investment of his life, felt that he ought to have someone bless his car‑‑just to be on the safe side. Unsure of whom to call, he phoned the local Catholic priest, who said, “Yes, it’s a bit out of the ordinary but I do baptize things for people”; but then he added, “Oh, by the way, what’s a Ferrari?”

Be Still and Know God

Do you find yourself caught up in the rush of living until you scarcely can remember which day of the week this is? You jump out of bed in the morning, gulp down a cup of coffee and hurry to work. Then you rush home, eat dinner quickly so that you can get to an evening appointment. And then you’re off to bed so that you’ll be able to get up in the morning, gulp down your coffee and hurry to work again.
