Sharing good news
If ten people were asked the purpose of the church, there could

Gospel, and if necessary use words.” Today’s...

Fear of not making the grade . . .
Two of my friends have a firm knowledge of ‘salvation by
faith’ yet occasionally admit to a fear: “But what if I don’t do it right?”

Pass the dictionary! ................ Parables 552
April 18, 1997 Confucius, the ancient Chinese philosopher, said if he could make the world right, he would do it by “insisting on the exact definition of words.” What a task that would be! Many words and their meanings come to us unconsciously while we are ...

Wrestling
Last night, after making the decision to go ahead with

Do all things through Christ . . .
Months ago, the Lord gave me an idea, or at least I thought it
