Can I Be Content?

Paul: Real Man or Demigod I wonder if I don’t see the Apostle Paul as some sort of semi-immortal; yeah, he’s a man, but more demigod than the rest of us standard-issue guys.   Paul was an exceptionally talented person who is revealed as being content in the midst of a very difficult personal life race.  But didn’t his contentment stem from his innate greatness, ...

Who Will Go For Us

2 Timothy 2:20, 21—“Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable.

A Down Hill Ride

Editor’s Note: Albert Everett and his wife Audrey are caring for her dad as he comes down the home stretch. From time to time, Al will share some insights with us. Some are funny...some are encouraging. This one just makes me long for a day when the infirm will dance on streets of gold.

Spiritual R & R

I am capable of being a spiritual slouch. I don’t like to get mixed up in the rough and tumble of life. I sometimes wonder, “Could it be that my main goal is the pursuit of a secure and relaxing Christian life?” Yes...it could.
