Judgment is Coming

Matthew 13: 47-52 (ESV) 47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. 48 When it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into containers but threw away the bad. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 “Have you…

The Parables of the Mustard Seed & the Leaven

31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32 It is thesmallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plantsand becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in itsbranches.” 33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”

The Parable of the Weeds

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43 24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.27 And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field?

Bible Reading Plans

In the Bible’s most extended mediation on the benefits of reading and meditating on God’s word, Psalm 119, the psalmist writes, “Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law” (v.18). The assumption is that there are wonderful things to be seen in God’s word. Thus, if wonders are to be seen and beheld, then one be in God’s word. There’s no better way to be in God’s word than having a plan to do so.…

Peace is Not Found in Princes or Presidents

The calls and texts over the past few days, have stirred my heart.  Election stress. Vote counting chaos. It appears that for many there is a tsunami of despair about to sweep us away.  Are we really approaching “the end of democracy,” as so many national headlines proclaim?  If one fills one’s mind with cable news, one will certainly be unable to sleep at night.  I invite you to fill your heart and mind with the eternal words of God…

Is There Hope for the Future?

As I watch the world, sometimes I wonder if it will survive.  The stress points of society seem to continue to increase.  The virus was stressful enough by itself.  Then came the financial fallout as a result.  These were uncharted waters; a global pandemic and a recession worse than 1929.  Then the little boat of our country was pummeled by hurricane Racism.  We reeled in its terrible winds.  It seems to me that one more national crisis will be the…

Theology of Work

We spend most of our waking hours working, whether in the home, at school, in our community or in the marketplace. For most people work is tough. A recent Gallup poll showed that 70% of people feel alienated at work. Most Christians live compartmentalized lives – spiritual Sundays and secular Mondays and Fridays. How can we live an integrated and fruitful life? By looking at what God says about work through his Word! The Bible talks about work from Genesis to Revelation,…
