Bushel Believers

Far too many Christians have become “bushel believers”: No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. Luke 11:33. They hide the light of their relationship with God under the “bushel” of busyness…

Reality Jesus

Most people think Jesus was a “hulky hero” wandering around righting wrongs and being adored by almost everyone. Scriptural reality paints a very different picture.

Dirty Diaper Discard

The Apostle Peter tell us a growing Christian needs to discard the “dirty diapers” that smell up his testimony and, instead, seek things that will nourish and grow him into “big boy pants” Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere…

Wrong Coordinates

During the Viet Nam war we were firing ground support for some soldiers. Their spotter gave us the coordinates to fire our first shell and we waited for his confirmation to fire the remaining shells. After a length of time the spotter told us to go ahead and fire. We told him we’d already done…

4 Trees

(Gen 2:9) “And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. When God placed man in the Garden of Eden He…
