Reading through the whole Bible ought to be a basic discipline for every Christian.  This is the Book we love.  It is our basis for life and godliness.  How can we live in the way God wants if we don’t read it?  This year,  I chose the chronological schedule, and loved it!  Years ago I had read through a printed Chronological Bible but had forgotten how helpful this method was.   Job is read toward the beginning of the year since Job lived...

I love Ecclesiates.  If I could summarize, it is this:  Enjoy your blessings from God as a righteous believer. There are no guarantees in life, for we do not know the mind of God who controls and directs in the course of history and in the progress of your life.  Our life is in His hands alone. “For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love...

Personal separation is a sticky issue in Independent Baptist circles.   We live “in the world, but not of the world” (Phil. 2:15; 1 John 2:16).  Some social issues are getting less easy to categorize with the encroaching acceptance of social drinking, dancing, going to movie theaters, length of skirts and necklines, even marijuana use. We mock the old adage “I don’t drink, smoke, or chew and I don’t go with girls that do.” We...

  Through circumstances recently, I’ve been reminded of the gaping hole in the human heart that only God can fill.  In an earthly sense, we have to wait a little longer for the harvest of delicious crops and gardens.  But in the spiritual realm, the souls of men are white already to be harvested.  We only need spiritual perception and sensitivity to see when that seed is ready.  Some plant, some till the ground, some reap, but God gives the increase.  As we watch the harvest come in, as we enjoy...

One of my favorite verses of the Psalms.  The Psalmist reminds us that it is alright to stop our overloaded schedules and take time to meditate on God’s Word.  Indeed, it is necessary!  In Christianity, meditation is not disengaging the mind, but rather focusing the mind on God’s character and what He has told us.  Laying aside distractions is a essential part of growth.  Pulling the weeds that threaten to choke out our joy and peace is necessary.  Vance Havner once said, “If you don’t...

I like to walk.  It’s probably my favorite exercise.  Hiking would be a close second.  Walking is an activity that is close at hand, something that I ought to do each day but sometimes fail to do that simple action of putting on my shoes and stepping out the door.  Once I’m on the walk, it’s much easier to continue, and when I’m done I feel satisfied and refreshed.  It’s true.  Running or jogging would have a greater...
