Avoid The Mines

In a documentary mini-series called “Against All Odds,” a remarkable story is told about an Israeli platoon that found themselves in the midst of a minefield along the Syrian border during the Yom Kippur War. When the platoon realized they were in a minefield, they pulled out their bayonets and started to dig out mines and to disarm them. Suddenly, a fierce wind began

Where Is Your Focus?

In the 1970s when the Alaskan Pipeline was being constructed, many Texans went to Alaska to work on the pipeline alongside the Eskimos. However, Texans could only work a few hours in the frigid weather, while the Eskimos could easily work for hours on end. Some scientists decided to do a study to find out why the Eskimos could withstand the weather, while the

God Can Use You

Jesus could have chosen the elite of His day to accomplish His mission. However, He used simple fishermen. These men were considered uneducated, lacking “social status”, wealth or worldly distinction of any kind. Yet, these “simple” men were the ones the Lord selected to build the Kingdom of God. When the children of Israel were slaves in Egypt, God didn’t send an army to

Stay The Course

During the 1990’s in an NCAA Division II national championship cross-country race in California, a bizarre twist of events took place. Mike Delcavo and 127 of the best runners in the country were battling for glory over the 10,000-meter course.

The first was just beginning to peep above the ground, the second had rooted itself pretty well into the earth, the third was a small shrub, while the fourth had become a little tree. The tutor said to

Being Extreme

Even though I am no longer in my 20’s (or 40’s for that matter!), I love to do things like zip-lining and parasailing. While I might be somewhat adventurous, I am not into extreme sports. Some people enjoy the thrill of doing something that is death-defying or dangerous, like scaling Mt. Everest or mountain biking on the side of a cliff. They like the

Look Beyond The Blessing

Jesus told His disciples to go into the deep waters and let down their nets for fish. When they did, their nets were filled up with fish to the point of breaking. Being fishermen and businessmen, they may have been tempted to start doing business. Think how much they could make! But God had a different purpose. The disciples’ occupation as fishermen was just

Don’t Lose The Wonder

When Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, I’m sure several million people were wondering, “How am I going to be fed? How am I going to survive in this wilderness?” Imagine the logistical nightmare. An incalculable quantity of food and water were needed to survive in the desert. Where would it come from? Yet, in this seemingly impossible situation, God provided! He provided

Jesus, Our Friend

When Jesus came into the world in human form, He changed our relationship with God forever. He made it possible for us to become adopted sons and daughters in God’s family, co-heirs with Him to the gift of eternal life with the Father. But He gave us another gift few of us ever open: His friendship. He experienced firsthand the loneliness of being human, and He

I realize it may be hard for you to believe, but I really do. At the trial, when you confessed to your part in the events that cost My Son his life and
