We Who Are Slaves

Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23).  To deny oneself in today’s culture might simply mean to practice a little self-control, perhaps to eat a little less, or to be more diligent with one’s personal devotions.  But this […]

God Who Is Our Master

It is overwhelming for the human mind to try to contemplate God.  “For who hath known the mind of the Lord?  Or who hath been his counselor?” (Rom. 11:34).  “Shall any teach God knowledge?  Seeing he judgeth those that are high” (Job 21:22).  Yet Solomon advised his son to seek the knowledge of God: My […]

Billy Graham’s Passing

Billy Graham was an evangelical evangelist who preached the gospel and saw many thousands of people come to Christ through his ministry.  Though I have not been a supporter of his new-evangelical ecumenicalism, I have always been thankful for many things about his life and ministry.  It will be interesting to see how America today […]

Natural Disasters

A number of interesting natural and unnatural things have happened in the last few days.  We have seen an amazing solar eclipse which happens only a couple times in most people’s life time.  Some people go too far on one side making such an eclipse a biblical sign from God, and others go too far […]
