    Verse of the Day
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    At many Christian funerals, the preacher emphasizes how Jesus has left to make a place ready for us to join him in heaven. Then he is going to come back for us. But just a few verses later, Jesus adds this promise. He’s telling us that until we can come be with him at his place, he will come live with…[Read more]

    THE CHURCH GOING GENERATION
    Parson to Person
    William Andrew Dillard
    From early days, the United States of America has been generally know by the world as a Christian nation. To be sure there were many times and episodes in its history that would bring that idea into question. Still, following the great revivals of the early 19th century, that…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    Last words! The last words of a parent to a child leaving for college… The last words of a loved one at the bedside of someone dying… The last words of a friend before moving to a distant place… These last words are chosen with care because they leave a lasting impact. Jesus’ last words are our…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    The earth is filled with your love, O Lord; teach me your decrees.
    –Psalm 119:64

    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    Sometimes we get so caught up in the wonders of God’s creation and the marvelous blessings of his grace we forget to ask him to teach us his truth. Let’s not only worship him in awe for his majestic creation, but let’s a…[Read more]

    HEBREW HONEYCOMB
    YOUR MOTHER AND MINE
    William Andrew Dillard
    In the theological world it is often stated how mixed up folks are about the subject of brotherhood and its meaning. But if one thinks that to be a problem, just consider how mixed up so-called churches are about motherhood!

    The status of motherhood has been on the rise for the last two…[Read more]

    HELLO BELSHAZZAR
    Parson to Person
    William Andrew Dillard
    Belshazzar was blessed to be king of the first great beast of empire. In prophecy, his kingdom (Babylon) was likened unto a lion in beast symbolism, and the golden head of the statue of empires seen in a kingly dream and interpreted by the prophet Daniel.
    His story is a repetitive one both…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    While it is naive, on one hand, to think that trusting in God makes all of our problems go away – Christians have many of the same problems that unbelievers do because they share the same mortal flesh, on the other hand it’s true. If we trust in God, we believe our work stands or falls in his hands a…[Read more]

    Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. –Isaiah 60:4-5

    HEBREW HONEYCOMB
    SELL ME THIS POWER
    William Andrew Dillard
    In biblical Christianity there is power! Saints sing of it often in such hymns as “There Is Power In The Blood.” Repentant lost people rejoice in it at the altar of their heart. Saints who are wise reject the time consuming offerings of the world in order to know Him and the POWER of His r…[Read more]

    John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!” He was a natural motivator.

    If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive…[Read more]

    And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. –Deuteronomy 8:17

    When things are going well, it could be easy to take credit for your prosperity. You may think it is your job or your college education that has given you the ability to get wealth. Your intelligence and cunning are not the s…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    It has always fascinated me that this verse has often been cited by those calling others to conversion when it is primarily written to lukewarm Christians needing to rekindle their love relationship to the Lord. As believers, we need to ask the Lord Jesus into our hearts, our home, and lives. It’s not…[Read more]

    Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. –Psalm 16:9-11

    David had this incredible r…[Read more]

    He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” –Psalm 91:1-2

    Churches are full of people who spend Monday through Saturday trying harder in their walk with the Lord. They wake up early so they can read through the Bible i…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.
    –Psalm 119:60

    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    Obedience is faith put into practice. Without action, James 2 reminds us that our faith is not real. So without arguing, let’s quickly obey, even when we don’t fully understand why because we’ve seen God’s love demonstrated to us in J…[Read more]

    LOOKING FOR ANTICHRIST
    (In The Wrong Direction)
    William Andrew Dillard
    Parson to Person
    From the days of the Great Depression in the 1930s to the late 1940s following WWII, life changed very little in the tiny village of my birth. Most folks did well to eek out a living from truck patch gardening, and harvesting the products of milk cows, hogs,…[Read more]
