Come and Drink

On my list of things I wish I’d learned earlier, this truth hovers near the top. Grace came my way packaged in a church. Congregations and their leaders changed me. But then the churches struggled, even divided. Mature men acted less than that. The box ripped, the faucet clogged, and my heart, for…

To be with Him

He appointed twelve -- designating them apostles -- that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons. Mark 3:14 While there are many intriguing and fascinating thoughts in this short sentence, the one phrase that touches my heart is…

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Joshua 1:8 THOUGHT: We need to be reminded, just like Joshua and the Israelites, that God gave us his Law to…

"Who am I?"

Ek het geen idee nie. Hoekom die man nie eerder in sy ID boekie kyk nie, of dalk eerder vir sy vrou vra "who he is" nie, sal ek nie weet nie. Een ding is verseker, ek sal nie my motor se nommerplaat (soos syne) laat druk met dié woorde op nie. Wel,…
