Migrating to WordPress

After many years learning to blog on another site, I'm ready to graduate from writing about every squirrel that runs through the yard to more focused topics. I am therefore beginning anew here at WordPress. Occasionally I will share some of the favorite posts from the good old days while leaving the simply "newsy" bits behind. The series of Bible...

What Does the Lord Require?

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8) Several years ago, I visited a church built in early 1900’s (or earlier) in Reading, Pennsylvania. As I admired the patterned... Continue Reading →

The Rapture That Wasn’t

Originally published May 22, 2011. It seems that every day there are more reasons to long for our Lord's return. So much heartbreak in the News and in the lives of those we love that is crushing or numbing, or both. I pray that we are driven ever more to prayer as we await our... Continue Reading →

Be Strong in the Lord

This week we finished our Bible study of Joshua and Ephesians, Living the Promises. Our final lesson covered a passage that for me, as for many, has been shrouded in layers of shallow misunderstanding and misapplication. As a recovered Charismatic, I have been both hesitant and eager to dig into the “Armor of God.” Allowing... Continue Reading →

In Relationship

In this week’s lesson, we looked at two more categories of relationships which believers are to bring under the gospel as we walk out our calling in Christ. To set the context, we are asked to look back at some of the high points we have covered thus far in our study of Ephesians. What... Continue Reading →

Living Together in Christ

We began this week’s study with Ephesians 5:15-21. The theme of this passage appears to be wise living. We therefore began with Job 28:28, and seeking the essence of wisdom. “And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’” Clearly, according to...

Have Thine Own Way, Lord!

Monday Memories Originally posted March 2, 2016, This came to mind as we revisited this subject in our Sunday school class again yesterday morning. I have a hymn winging through my heart as I go about my several quiet tasks at home. Of course, I can't remember all the words, but the refrain and the... Continue Reading →

Scripture Memorization

Several years ago I happened upon a plan for memorizing Scripture which has been a blessing to me when I have been able to stick with it. Using this plan I was able to memorize the entire book of Philippians and am now most of the way through Ephesians. Below are excerpts of other posts I have... Continue Reading →

Living as Children of Light

As we move into chapter 5, we find that Paul is continuing his discourse on Christian holiness as a reflection and product of God’s saving work in our lives. We must no longer live as we did before we were saved. We must live in a way that is visibly different from the world, shining... Continue Reading →

Words, Words, Words…

Monday Memories Originally published August 17, 2010, and still holding true today. My love for words keeps me reading, fuels my writing, and has led to my owning more books than I can possibly read—but I can hope, can't I? My love for the Word of God also continues to grow, and has found rich rewards... Continue Reading →
