About the Bible

I hope you read Numbers 21:4-9, where the people sinned by complaining and God sent serpents as punishment. The people were bitten, and many died. Moses was told to make a brass serpent and put it on a pole. If the people would look up at the brass serpent, they would live.

I heard a song (again) that said in part, "I sing because there is an empty grave. I sing because there is a power that saves. I sing because I'm not alone. I sing because some day I'm going home." I do sing, and these are only some of the reasons why.

This One Thing I Know I know He opened up my blinded eyes one day. I know His precious blood washed all my sins away. I know His peace, sweet peace, has filled my troubled soul. Yes, this one thing I know. On Wednesday evening The Boyle family sang this song.

About the Bible

What should we use to draw men unto Christ: food, fun, entertainment? These are worldly desires. Why would we ever use them? But look around. People are gullible, and it's working. We love free food, fun, and entertainment.

I have a stack of papers, (mostly napkins) on my desk that have notes scribbled on them. Sometimes it's a verse of scripture or words from a song. These are usually things I have heard on the radio as I was driving; things that had a special meaning at the time and I didn't want to forget.

About the Bible

How can we keep sin out of our lives? First, we have to get rid of our past sins. There is only one remedy for sin, the blood of Jesus Christ, our Savior! Without the blood of Jesus there is no forgiveness, Hebrews 9:22. In Him we have redemption through His blood, Ephesians 1:7.

Have you heard the song, "He Gave Me the Well?" I have heard it many times but just recently I listened to it again. The song tells of one who was thirsty, searching for just a small drink of water, but then it says that He gave her something He knew would last.

About the Bible

Does God tell us how to become His child? Can we be sure we are? The answer is yes!, according to the Bible. The secret is to not listen to the world as too many different ideas are being taught. There are 11 examples in the New Testament that show what people did.

Did you see the sign that said, for every Goliath God will provide a stone? I read the words and immediately thought of the many times God has provided a stone for me to stand against what appeared to be a giant I was facing. When there were problems or questions He sent the answer.
