Pray For Those In High Places


"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, andthanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions,that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way."(1 Timothy 2:12, ESV) Is prayer a discipline of the faith that Christians faithfully engage?

Find encouragement where it is to be found


Find encouragement where it is to be found. A profound axiom for sure, at first glance it appears to be equal to a coach yelling the obvious.

Caring for another person is no small thing. Tending physical needs of clothing, shelter, health concerns is quite literally a matter of life and death. Taking another step is the regard for value of personhood beyond mere physical needs. Possessing a concern beyond one's own person, having regard for another's very soul, is a feat of cosmic proportions. Some might say th...

Confessing Christ prt II


Sometimes societal rejection of God can lead a Christian to feel like a car salesmen. Maybe that was just my feeling, but it was a feeling encouraged by people's faithless responses to the message of Christ. I hope you know what I mean, when those around you have rejected God, and in seeking to share with them the things of God, there is an irritable response where the mes...
