To Live is Christ; June 13, 2022


Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. This simple yet extraordinarily powerful statement of Paul is justly famous. I think a lot of people know it who have no idea where to find … Continue reading

Commitment; January 4, 2022


Matt 14:14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. Jesus’ level of dedication is shown by far more than what we call Passion Week. Here, He had just heard of … Continue reading

Hearing from God; November 29, 2021


Psalm 28:6 Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. It’s interesting to be struck by a verse that I had not underlined before! What strikes me is the shift, from pleading to be heard … Continue reading

Good Judgment; August 21, 2020


John 7:24 “Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.” At first glance this might seem like a pronouncement of “Mister Obviousman,” but the thing is, this is something we all have problems with, often without realizing it. … Continue reading

Forgiving; July 31, 2020

Anger; July 28, 2020


Matthew 21:19 Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. Just the other day … Continue reading

Commitment; July 11, 2020


Matthew 4:19-20 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him. Just reading Matthew you might think this was Jesus’ first encounter with these men, but John … Continue reading
