Anxiety is a Superfluous Requirement…

Taken from Luke 12 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they […]

In Spite of Ourselves…

Diary:  Goats have odd eyes.  Piercing, indifferent, detached.  The horns only add to their cynical demeanor.  So this one goat is staring at me.  I stopped the car because he wouldn’t move.  Yellow lines and my car’s grill are at one time reflected by its steely glare.  He’s sizing me up and playing it cool.  But, something was […]

The Undercurrent of Our Natures

Diary:  Forrest Gump was at our door again this morning.  He was apparently down on his luck and seeking food.  He often does that.  I believe he views the entire neighborhood as his own domain and feels rightfully justified to enter all our homes.  Of course, he’s quite pleasant about it.  Being quick with friendly overtures, I don’t […]

On the Outskirts of Eternity…

Diary: Southern sun and cold temperatures make strange friends.  Limbs are scattered about the yard; casualties of the latest bout of ice and snow.  No vestiges of fall remain.  The windblown piles of leaves and the brown skeletons of garden plantings speak of their recent fullness.  We have sure hope of new growth, but it […]

For Want of Humility

I’ve been quite quiet on this blog for some time now.  That anyone is still tuning in from time to time is humbling.  Thanks to all that stop by. I felt particularly compelled tonight to post something about what I’ve been thinking about lately.  I’ve been considering Galatians 2:20: 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless […]

Movie Night!

Martin Luther:Reluctant Revolutionary This is a PBS documentary on the life of Martin Luther.  I’ve watched this and I recommend it.  Of course, I know what you’re thinking.  Another liberal TV production that reduces to shreds the reality of history.  Well, I’m not going to be naive and vouchsafe the theological bent of the entire […]

For the Want of Wisdom

“To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, […]

A New Read!

The Israel of God, by O. Palmer Robertson I began reading this book, in earnest, yesterday.  If you’ve followed this blog at all you know I have an appetite for reading.  But just as my mom always thought my eyes were too big for my stomach when it came to eating, so to are my expectations […]

Sanctification Basics (Or Peace Like A River)

By Louis Berkhof 1. Nature and Characteristics of Sanctification. Sanctification may be defined as that gracious and continuous operation of the Holy Spirit by which, He purifies the sinner, renews his whole nature in the image of God, and enables him to perform good works. It differs from justification in that it takes place in […]
