The Never-ending-ness of God

I have a riddle for you this morning:  What is greater than God, more evil than the devil, the poor have it, the rich don’t need it, and if you eat it, you’ll die? The answer to the riddle is “nothing.” Nothing is greater than God. Nothing is more evil than the Devil. The poor…

Reminded More Than Instructed

A well-known author from England in the 1700s named Samuel Johnson once wrote, “People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.” There’s certainly some wisdom in that statement. If you and I just did everything we already know to do, we’d be just fine. Apostle John takes a similar approach…

Are You a Christian?

Are you a Christian? Sometimes people are confused about this. Maybe we grew up in a Christian community and culture, and Christianity is just our default identification. Or maybe we walked an aisle at some point in our life and prayed a prayer and got dunked in the water. But that seems so long ago…

Cleanse Us from All Unrighteousness

Saturday Night Live has a been staple late night comedy for almost 50 years now. It’s not as funny as it used to be, but man, there have been some really funny comedians and some hilarious sketches over the years. One of my favorites was Dana Carvey, and one of his most memorable characters was…

Intruder Alert

One of the houses that we used to rent had an alarm system in it. I really didn’t think much about it. Out of habit, I would set the alarm at night before going to bed. But one night in the middle of that thing came to life and blared out. INTRUDER ALERT [SIREN] LEAVE…

Signaling Central Command of Heaven

One of the most important roles on the battlefield in the military is the signaler. A Combat Signaller is responsible to relay messages for field commanders on the front line back to a central command post. They relay crucial data and can request extra support, like calling in an airstrike to give soldiers an advantage…

A Helmet for Your Soul

The human body is made up of all sorts of body parts, but there’s one body part that you can’t live without, and that is your head. That reminds of what the headless horseman told his therapist. When his therapist asked him what was wrong, he said, “I just can’t get ahead in life.” You…

Combat Boots

When you join the army, one of the first things you are given is a pair of combat boots. You see, what is on your feet is very important because it protects you in so many ways. It protects your feet from the hot and cold around you. It protects your feet from the terrain…
