Considering Proverbs 10:13-14

13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction. When I read these verses, I’m thankful that we serve a patient God. How often haveContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:13-14”

The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged

How long has it been since our Lord, Jesus, ascended into heaven? How many men since that time have made judgements concerning the teachings of Jesus and the way a Christian aught to live out their faith? Many men—in Christ there is no male or female, so for simplicity’s sake, I say men—have made judgements.Continue reading “The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged”

Thankful for Small Ministries

I want to offer some encouragement for small ministries. Whether you have a blog, some other form of online ministry, or a church, I know that being small can be discouraging at times. Yet, it is good. A lot can be accomplished from small ministry, and there are benefits for those who have them. IContinue reading “Thankful for Small Ministries”

The Challenges of Being an Outlier Christian (Part 2)

There are reasons why many believers find it difficult, if not impossible, to find a home church. I have had difficulty also, and I don’t think I will ever find one.

I know that I am in no way worthy of any of it, and because I appreciate His grace and mercy, all things feelContinue reading “There is Always More to Gain: Returning to Our First Love”

Considering Proverbs 9:10

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. How does fear of the Lord make one wise?

Considering Proverbs 9:3-6

3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city, 4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, 5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled. 6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go inContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 9:3-6”

Disciples of Jesus or Dependents of Man?

I’m working on an article and this has me thinking about an important question that Christians should consider, especially those who hold positions of authority—in any measure, great or small. If we do something as simple as write a blog, we should consider. Are we creating disciples of Jesus Christ or dependents of man? WhenContinue reading “Disciples of Jesus or Dependents of Man?”
