True Obedience

"Obedience is better than sacrifice" (1 Samuel 15:22) What ever happened to obedience? You don't hear too much about that anymore. Rather than honoring God by obeying Him and adhering to His Holy Word, we have rationalized our disobedience, minimized it, made excuses for it and disguised it under an entitlement mentality. The history of Israel throughout God's Word is a...

“Hearers vs. Doers”

"But prove yourselves doers of the Word and not merely hearers who delude themselves." (James 1:22) There is a great difference in hearing the Word of God and doing the Word of God! Many people hear, not so many do. James likens a hearer and not a doer to a man who looks in the mirror and then walks away but forgetting what he saw in the mirror forgetting what kind of p...

Uncle Frank's Grace

"Good Stewards of the manifold Grace of God" (1 Peter 4:10) Many years ago, as a young boy, I would visit my Uncle Frank's house and with my cousins, explore the "shadowy depths" of his basement. One day as we explored, he told us not to go into a certain area and not to touch some of the special vases and antique pitchers he collected and used as models in his still li...
