John 3:16

The other day I just happened to glance across my desk in my office and spotted a new devotional book I received in the mail. It was titled "John 3:16" and was written by the popular author, Max Lucado.

We must never be satisfied with who we are

There is a tension in every life, and it is only exaggerated if you are a Christian. That tension has to do with satisfaction in life. God calls us to be "content" or satisfied with our circumstance in life. And yet He never wants us to be satisfied to be who we are right now. There is the constant call to grow, to become more, to be His disciple.

Make the most of every opportunity you get

In the book of Ephesians, chapter 5 and verse 16, it which tells us to "make the most of every opportunity." When we think of this verse we usually apply it to sharing of our faith, which is a valid application. However I think it goes far beyond this application.

He is faithful

I started playing baseball when I was 6 years old. Actually I played with my dad even before that, but when I was 6 I had the privilege of playing in the first T-ball league in the Atlanta area. What fun it was. I played baseball all the way through high school, and played softball for many years after that.

You can try, but you cannot ignore God

One of the sayings of the day is, "Just get away from it all." Normally some vacation spot is trying to entice us to come and pay them a visit. On occasion it is good to get away, but sadly some try to get away from God.

God allows you to start anew

Christmas is past, and now we look forward to the new year. I have to admit that I have been described as a "stick in the mud" when it comes to the celebration of New Year's Day. That is especially true in light of my view of Christmas.

See more than a baby in a manger

This time of year we celebrate the birth of Christ, but who is this one that was born in a manger over 2000 years ago? The Bible says that this child is the Son of God; for the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary bringing about the conception. This is a great mystery but Christ was both God and man. While he was on this earth He was an example to those who watched His life and is our example as we read about that life. He also was a great teacher, instructing people how to live a life pleasing to God ...

Why do we collect angels?

When I was a little boy I collected baseball cards. I had a few football and basketball cards, but the ones that mattered most to me were the baseball players. Like so many other boys my age, I dreamed of one day becoming a professional baseball player.

Do you believe in Santa Claus?

This is a question that you will hear time and time again during this Christmas season; including many movies where this is the key issue. Kids will ask their parents or grandparents if Santa is really real or just a made up character. I am not going to give you advice on how to answer this very important question, but may God give us all wisdom and guidance as we attempt to without sapping the fun out of this season.

Get ready

I will never forget the events of the first meal that my wife cooked for me. My "then fiancée" took had invited me come to dinner on a particular day. I later learned that she carefully selected the groceries, and then took a half day from work in order to prepare the meal for me. Imagine her feelings when I sat down and wolfed down a plate full (and seconds) in less than ten minutes. I mean, eating is one of my favorite pastimes. I thought it was a compliment. She thought I should take my time.
