60 Seconds On Evil and God’s Judgment

One of the things the reality of the day of final judgment can do is give you comfort when you are confronted with violent, vicious evil.  God is a Judge, and He is returning.  So every finally unrepentant rapist or murderer or child abuser (or liar or gossip) will give an account and receive God’s...

Palm Sunday Thought

God the Father condemned Jesus for my sins.   Jesus died to have me.   Despite the fact that I was a sexual deviant, disobedient to my loving parents, nasty to friends and acquaintances, and a drunken revolver, the God who is Father and Son and Spirit authored a plan to adopt me.  The Gospel,...

More Than Good Works

The world does not need more mere good works.   Being a nice man can’t get me eternal life.  Having solid character won’t make me right with my Creator.  It won’t unstain what I’ve stained.  Being a good guy won’t fix me.   We are in a much deeper hole than common wisdom suggests.  And...

To the Lost and Abused

You are not forgotten.  You are not irrelevant.   This world of sin and sinners is often a place where young girls are sexually abused.  Where little boys are ignored by their fathers or beaten by their fists.  Where the small or disadvantaged are trampled by the anger or selfishness of warped men with warped...

10 Seconds On Joy

Just straight Scripture, here.   Jesus, to His disciples the night before He was led to the slaughter to save His people:  When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being...

He Doesn’t Control Some Things

   That's right.  He controls all things.   Is a trumpet blown in a city,and the people are not afraid?  Does disaster come to a city, unless the Lord has done it?  Amos 3:6 Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it?  Is it not from the mouth of... Continue Reading →

A Truer Story

   Kudos to Julie Roys of Moody Radio for saying something very true very succinctly on a recent Christianity Today podcast. Mrs. Roys pointed out that there's a worldview difference between the mindset of the big-government political left and the mindset of the Bible-believing Christian.   The left maintains that the cause of suffering we see...

60 Seconds On Death and Easter

Death will not get the last word. It spoke what it had, every last syllable of its harshest lie, and couldn't keep Him behind the rock. Him.  The Christ.  The God-man come for sinners. In a world with dead bodies, there is no hope unless there is resurrection.  God made a world of trees and... Continue Reading →

30 Seconds On Grace

   Christian, the grace you extend is the grace you really believe in.  If you do not forgive the sins and mistakes of others, it is because, regardless of what you say, you do not approach God with the posture of one who has been forgiven of wrongdoing.   Instead, you see yourself as more righteous...
