Great chapter on God’s PLAN – L. Boettner “The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination”

Chapter III God has a Plan IT is unthinkable that a God of infinite wisdom and power would create a world without a definite plan for that world. And because God is thus infinite His plan must extend to every detail of the world’s existence. If we could see the world in all its relations, […]

What the right political leader in office can do for the church

This morning my Bible reading included Ezra chapter 6. As I have read through the Bible, through the years, each time I read passages again, they can hit me with more potent meaning. Ezra 6 speaks about a search King Darius made for documents because certain trouble makers were questioning whether the Jewish people really […]

Oh how TRUE Spurgeon’s point in his second paragraph is today!  People ride their lusts today as if they were champions riding stallions.  This is why his first point is relevant as well.  If lusts rule in our minds and hearts as individuals, we will elect leaders, applaud celebrities and choose heroes who do the […]

The Conversation of the Proverbs 31 Woman –

I love this little picture of the Proverbs 31 woman.  She could be in a Bible Study, on the phone, or Facebook, having coffee with friends, but wherever she is she speaks with grace and understanding.  Others look to her and are blessed!  

Wednesday night, prayer meeting, Bible study … “God’s Favor or Fire” Genesis 18

I put together notes for tonight’s Bible study on Genesis 18, and they almost look like a sermon outline, tempted to preach it … “God’s Favor or Fire” Genesis 18 In Genesis 18, God presents us with a stark contrast. First, we see Abraham, preferred and loved by God. In sharp contrast, we see the […]
