Don’t miss God’s blessings

Like Lucy, sometimes we miss out on God’s blessings because we are too busy feeling sorry for ourselves.

Don’t let misery become myopic. Open your eyes to what God is doing around you.

“Nice try” is not enough

Many of us approach salvation like Charlie Brown. We try really hard. But our efforts only leave us frustrated.

Fortunately, salvation is not a matter of trying hard. It is a matter of accepting the gift of God’s grace.

Ephesians 2:8–9 – For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

We are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

D-Day – 74th anniversary

Sacrifice. Commitment. Service. Freedom. Words fail to describe the impact of the previous generation.

Be ready to give an answer

Because the Sally Browns of the world are looking for answer, I must study, prepare, and be ready to give an answer. Since people are looking to me for guidance, I need to be in the Scriptures on a regular basis. Not just preparing the next sermon or lesson, but seeking to grow in my knowledge of God and his word.

1 Peter 3:15 – but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,

2 Timothy 2:15 – Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

Life is an essay question

It seems the older I get, the more essay questions life throws my way.
