The Will of God and the Road Less Traveled​

The Treasure Principle

Ecclesiastes 5:8-20 (NIV84) 8 If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still. 9 The increase from the land is taken by all; the king himself profits from the fields. 10 Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever…

Fear the Word of Grace and Truth

John 1:1-14 (NIV84) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. 6 There came a man…

A Meaningful or Meaningless Life

Ecclesiastes 1:1-18 (NIV84) 1The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem: 2″Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless!

The Abundant Life or a Trained Elephant

John 15:1-8 (NIV84) 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in…

Dad – In His Image

Genesis 1:26-28 (NIV84) 26Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28God…

Put Worry in the Rearview Mirror

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV84) The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Matthew 6:24-34 (NIV84) 24No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. 25Therefore I…
