Priorities

I use the social network site Facebook to keep up with family and friends. It’s nice to see what’s going on in folk’s lives, to see if they have joys to relate or problems that need prayer. It’s also a good way to find out people’s opinions on topics of the day.

Out of Time

Jeremiah 15:1-3

The people of Judah reached a very disturbing place. They tried God’s patience for hundreds of years, and now they had reached the end. God declared judgment on them; a judgment from which He would not relent.

Friends

Proverbs 17:17

Do you consider yourself someone who has many friends?  Are you sure that each person you call a friend, truly is one?  Over the years, I’ve been hurt by people whom I thought were friends.  The betrayal cut deeply until I took a hard look at our relationships and realized we weren’t friends . . . → Read More: Friends

Salvation: The Need

The greatest truth of all is our redemption by a loving God; how He made a way for us to return to Him.  For my monthly Topic, I will look at that way which we call salvation.

Entire books have been published on this truth, so I don’t pretend to be able to cover it in one . . . → Read More: Salvation: The Need

Hebrews Six

My Thoughts on Hebrews Chapter Six, Verses One through Eight

For many people, the first eight verses of the sixth chapter of Hebrews appear difficult to interpret at best and contrary to the assurance of salvation at worst.  In making the attempt at an interpretation, some fall into the trap of addressing only what they believe they . . . → Read More: Hebrews Six
