The least of these.

May I have your attention for five minutes? I want to share something with you; I pray that it will move you just half as much as it moved me!

“When it comes to helping people that ain’t got much, God didn’t leave no room for feelin led.…

In God’s hands.

Each time I drive out of Long Beach, and head south on the 405, I am driving away from people I love--whose burdens I share, whose struggles have, in some sense, become my own. But I realize I have no choice but to leave my dear friends in…

Shout with joy to the Lord, all…

Give thanks.

It is almost Thanksgiving Day, so I’ve been thinking … we know it is a time to stop and say “thank you”—but, why should we give thanks? Why do we make a special day out of the year, and close more retail shops than any other day of the year, for the purpose of giving thanks? Because a long time ago,…

Step by Step. Romans 4.9-15

God leads his children step by step. See, God does not lead us by sending us a prospectus that outlines each

of his directives, what will happen when we obey him, and then what will be the

results of our cooperation with him. [although that is the over-arching message

of the Bible, is it not??]

For instance, last…

Abraham, Friend of God. Romans 4.1-8

What is the big deal about Abraham? Let’s go back…way back, like 4,000 years, and see if we can figure it out - His father had been a moon

worshipper, but rather than follow the moon, Abraham heard the voice of God,

and he listened to it. He was

every bit the renegade that Noah was, but instead of a big boat…

All of who we are. Romans 3.29-30

Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God,…

Read and Grow.

There is great value in reading books that inspire, grow, and challenge our faith as well as our thinking. So, I am passing on some of my latest literary conquests:

1) Well, I can’t say enough good about…

Guilty, then justified. Romans 3.19-28

Seventeen years old, driving a new Firebird with just a couple hundred miles on it, the day before high school graduation . . . oh, yeah, I thought I

was one bad chick. ‘Loving the ‘get up and go’ in that

V-8, having a great time with my buddies, just didn’t see that black and

white sitting there. I looked down, saw I was doing 55 mph in a 25 mile an hour zone . . . dang! I…

The Road to Life. Romans 3

Since the Garden, man’s sin has always separated him from God. Though men offered sacrifices to God to atone for their sins, these were incomplete offerings. Our gracious God, however, offered up the perfect sacrifice—the once-for-all sacrifice, Jesus Christ.…

Spiritual Checkup--Part Two. Romans 3.9-18

This is Part two of “Time for a checkup … a spiritual one.”

Some people avoid getting physicals because they know they need to lose weight before they see the doctor, or they need to start that promised

exercise program, or they just plain do not want to hear that…

Time for a check up … a spiritual one. Romans 3.9-18

When was your last physical? Recently, I read that if you are in your 40s, you should get a physical checkup every two years; 50s and older, once a year . . . Many maladies, which

have not exhibited outward manifestations could be successfully treated

if they had just been caught earlier.…

It Isn’t Fair! Romans 3.1-8

It Isn’t Fair! Romans 3.1-8

If interviewed, some of you reading this right now would honestly say, ‘Life isn’t fair.’ Things haven’t gone the way you planned. You have lived uprightly and honestly, and yet you’ve gotten the ‘short end of the stick’ while someone else has walked away scot-free. How…

Tis a higher thing still to be pure of heart

Tis a higher thing still to be pure of heart.

There is a convergence of thoughts this morning as I write—of what it means to be a partner in the new covenant—of what it might mean for us to have our hearts circumcised … to…

Denver turns around---gets circumcised

When first I met him, he was part of the park wallpaper—you know, he had a regular resting spot—under a big old tree, leaning against the planter. A businessman, (drug dealer), ‘Denver’ was also a respectful guy to a ‘woman of the cloth’. Then I learned in another iteration, he was a deacon at his church, too …. How does that work? Well, I guess that explained his respect for me.…

PDF - Public Displays of Faith. Romans 2.25-29

In the 70s, we put IXOYE (fish) stickers on our bumpers.

In the 80s, we put WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) stickers on them.

We baptize, share Communion, join a church, and even carry fat Bibles.…
