    • Great Post!!

      As we proclaim the greatness of God, we must be presenting a complete picture of who He is. Certainly He is a God of love, compassion, mercy and forgiveness. But if that is the sum total of our proclamation of God, then, as AW Tozer put it, we are in danger of presenting God as a figment of our own “maudlin sentimentality.” Scripture is clear we are to fear God (Prov. 9.10 and Mt. 10.26-28). But our fear is not based on God being capricious or impulsive. Rather God is patient and kind, slow to anger and faithful. He is also Holy and omnipotent.

      This post is excellent in presenting the truth about who God is. We would all be wise to heed its message.

  • A Story of Joshua, Caleb and the Truth of Psalm 37

    Waiting, waiting, waiting is the hardest test God has given to us in so many ways. We want the answer now but Isaiah tells us that God’s ways are higher than o […]

  • Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm in the psalter and it is filled with praise for the Father Almighty. In sharp contrast is the shortest verse recorded by the Apostle John:  “Jesus wept.”  Placed side by side we se […]

  • What a blessing to be called to disciple another! But there are caveats that go along with this and one that is the most crucial is to be a person of integrity which has the meaning of without fault, just and […]

  • They say there are morning people and night people. Morning people begin work long before the sun comes up. Joshua must have been a morning person because chapter 3 begins “Bright and early the next morning J […]

  • You have been called by God to disciple another but you feel like you are just treading water. The time constraints on your personal life, the disciple’s problems and their never-ending questions to which you […]

  • Salvation is not complicated. The gospel message is as easy as A-B-C. Admit you are a sinner and in need of God’s saving grace. Believe that Jesus died for your sins and therefore ended and abolished the s […]

  • Psalm 90 and 1 Cor 15 were the readings at funerals in the first century. Both reveal the same truths: God has placed eternity in our heart [Eccl 3] that we might know and seek what is eternally significant. A […]

  • One of my favorite places to visit as a child was a carousel in a park in Auburn, NY. For 25ȼ you could ride and ride up and down on the ponies. Later this carousel would be moved to an inside mall only to […]
