  1. - Two Sides of the Cross –

    Luke 23:33, “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand, and the other on the left”

    Matthew 10:38, “He who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me”

    The cross in Roman times was designed for death as it had no other use. Jesus disciples had a vivid picture of the agony, punishment, and misery that the cross represented. However, ...
  2. - Saved at Sea –

    John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the pastor once again slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit, and gave a very brief introduction of his childhood friend. With that, an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit to speak, "A father, his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the Pacific ...
  3. Beneath His Wings

    Beneath His Wings
    When storms are raging 'round me
    And winds are blowing fierce,
    When demon hordes attack me
    And Satan's arrows pierce -

    I run to Christ my Rock
    And tell Him of my woes:
    Of how the demons mock;
    My every move oppose.

    Then safe beneath His wings
    And shielded from all harm,
    Life's storms and evil things
    Cannot disturb my calm.

    So, I’m now writing this ...
  5. - God’s Word is Truth –

    Psalm 31:5, “You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth”
    Psalm 119:160, “The entirety of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever”

    When a witness takes the stand, that person is asked, “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?” At one time, the words “so help me God” were part of that oath, as an appeal to the highest authority. Daniel Webster said, “If truth be not diffused, error ...
