Spoiled Rotten

Today, I turn 49 years old. Yesterday, close to the Appalachian Trail, I was meditating once again on the prodigal son, particularly the one who stayed at home. Just like him, there was a day that I was a “spoiled brat”. However, I realize staying at home was not a bad thing. And one can […]

Launch Out Into The Deep Written by: Benjamin Burks Luke 5:4, “Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.” I have been musing on the theme of the conference I attended in Lancaster, California: “Launch Out Into The Deep”.

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus” .(Ephesians 1:1) When I was growing up, our youth department had reversible jerseys. This meant that everyone received the same “jersey”, but half of the group would turn their jersey […]

Road to Confusion vs. Road to Calvary

While in India, I learned a few things about their culture, their prominent religion, and their politics. All three of these are integrated into one in many townships in India. Hinduism is unique among the world religions in that it has no founder or date of origin. While most major religions derive from new ideas […]

Ecclesiastes 11:1, “ Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.” While in India, one of the first things I noticed was the flooded plains.  Field after field after field seemed to be under water.  From my host, I learned about the process used both in India and during […]

Dr. Kingsbury and I had a wonderful trip to the country of India.  Our hosts, Dr. Chatla and Dr. Matthew Henry are wonderful servants of the Lord.  We covered much ground in India as we were in 11 different churches in 6 days.   The cities visited were Mumbai, Vigaywada, Kakinada, Rajahmundry, and Hyderabad. Every assembly […]

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief” (1 Timothy 1:15.) In all of my studies, I believe this is one of the most instructive verses on the wonderful salvation that is available to all.  It is called […]

Wonderful Savior

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) Here we find a “Christmas verse” in the middle of the Old Testament. This […]

The word “Genesis” means new beginnings. We find a lot of “firsts” in the book of Genesis. In today’s blog, (a blog by way of video) we will see God’s presence, power, and plan revealed to us. It is amazing to me that when you see His presence, His power and His plan can be […]

Language without Love is Negligence

I heard my good friend, Bruce Frye, tell a story on his Christmas CD, and for the next several days I meditated on the meaning of God’s love. It became apparent to me that we have developed a language without love. The story line was as follows: On a cold, dark night in the city […]
