  • Is This Really America?

    Today in America… TEXAS: graduate participants and school officials are threatened by a judge with jail time if a prayer or any religious terms (like “benediction” or mentions of faith) are uttered during the ceremony because some idiot kid and his exponentially more idiotic parents will be “irreparably harmed” if they have to endure the horrific acts. VIRGINIA: Federal buildings fly rainbow flags during the month June which has been proclaimed by our President as sodomy pride month. Is this the America our fathers died for? Is the America me and my brothers risked our lives for with military service? Is the America we want to send our children and grandchildren to die for? I’m starting to wonder…. PS: WHAT ARE YOUR QUESTIONS FOR ME? […]

  • Glory in Tribulations

    Romans 5:3a And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations…. (NKJV)Life can get really tough sometimes. Have you ever had a time when it just seems like troubles are waiting at the foot of your bed when you wake up in the morning? For all but a very rare few, most people will go through times in their life when it seems that joy will have to be something that only heaven will bring. Life can be heavy, sad and a real burden. That doesn’t sell books, but it’s reality. Sometimes it feels like joy will only come after we get to heaven. In this modern age of “form over substance” we have lots of ways of denying, escaping or covering up the […]

  • I Love the Lord Because

    Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. (NKJV)(Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)As Christians, we all say and sing “I love You Lord”. Have you ever stopped and really thought about “why”? Do you really mean it? Can you tell people why? DO you tell people why?Of course the most obvious reason is because He first loved us (1John 4.19), and gave Himself for us so that we might have eternal life. If that were the only reason, it would be infinitely enough. However, throughout our lives, the Lord continues to love us and do well for […]

  • Fear God: Proximity – Part 3

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. Now all has been heard and this is the conclusion: fear God and keep His commandments. It says the whole “duty” of man but the original meaning is better stated by saying it is “the whole of man”. In other words, fearing God completes us and makes us into what God created us for.You may find yourself having to admit that the idea of the “fear of God” […]

  • A Reader Asks: A friend of mine wants to have foot washing at an upcoming fellowship time, and I’m a little uncomfortable …

    Question:A friend of mine wants to have foot washing at an upcoming fellowship time, and I’m a little uncomfortable with this. It has never been my understanding that foot washing was an ordinance, on the level of communion or baptism. I’ve always seen Jesus’ foot washing story as an example of servitude toward one another, rather than a literal command to wash each other’s feet. What do you think? Answer:First, let me define what a “foot washing” is for those folks who may not understand the question.John 13:5 After that, He (Jesus) poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. (NKJV) Jesus was showing the reality of his servanthood, […]

  • Hell – The Bible Speaks – Part 2

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Revelation 20:15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (NKJV) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)If you were standing in the middle of the train tracks, unaware that a train was coming around the corner at 70mph and going to run you over any minute… would you consider it negative, harsh, or a “scare tactic” for me to warn you about your impending death? What if I just told you how soft the grass was on the side of tracks and pleaded with you to come on over and enjoy the scenery?Or would you want me to warn you sternly and passionately? Obviously, […]

  • I Can Do All Things Through… What?

    Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (NKJV) We’ve all heard countless messages on this verse. They usually relate to themes of overcoming great odds, or facing uncertainty or fear which of course is a correct and relevant application.However, I think even more, given modern lifestyles and attitudes, this verse needs to be retaught, re-examined and re-applied concerngin the simple day to day course of living. Consider the following verses, then my facetious, but sadly accurate, “re-write” of them. I don’t do this to get a chuckle, or have people nod their heads in agreement. We have a serious epidemic of personal weakness today that is being remedied by everything BUT faith, Scripture and Christianity. Here is what the Apostle […]
