Sexual Oneness

There’s a story Anabel and I heard years ago—neither of us recalls the source. But it wonderfully illustrates the different way men and women view the physical relationship. The story is about a young couple, very committed to the Lord, who are engaged to be married. It’s past midnight, and they’ve been to a movie. Continue Reading…

A Planned Pregnancy

Mary is large with the child in her womb. Her first child … and the baby is due just any time now. She watches out the window as Joseph is making preparations for the trip to Bethlehem. Oh why must we go to Bethlehem now? I’m so big and uncomfortable. Lord God, I want to Continue Reading…

Who is Your Source?

"Bill, I don’t see why you spend so much time talking about "flesh". I didn’t even bother to fill out the Flesh Inventory you distributed. I believe we ought to just love the Lord and not worry about the side issues." This brother has no idea that he’s being lulled to sleep by Satan. A Continue Reading…

A Strong Heart In Crummy Times

1 Samuel 30 is not recommended reading for children under twelve or adults with squeamish stomachs. Fire, war, plunder, slaughter, stoning, starvation, and general, all-around inhumanity are just seven reasons that this chapter isn't on the good-for-before-bedtime reading list. Dianne likes reading about Ruth and Boaz falling in love, Miriam rescuing baby Moses, and Esther Continue Reading…

Impasse

He trusts in God; let Him deliver Him now,if He takes pleasure in Him … (Matt. 27:43) God didn’t deliver Jesus. He didn’t come through.

Pride and Prejudice

About five years ago, God began to teach me what it means to be in Christ. I was a very dedicated Christian, but I was definitely missing something. Of course, the missing element was to let Christ live through me rather than to approach life on my own. The immediate relief was wonderful! God was Continue Reading…

Darkness

As a kid I had yellow, footy pajamas that were faded to the color of a manila folder, but whoever handed them down to me did a good thing. Oh, to have another pair, size M. It was always a little tough getting the bottoms on after getting out of the bathtub, but when I Continue Reading…

Amy’s Story

Tell me, Brian, how did you overcome your drinking problem? Total abstinence. It’s the only way. How about you, Eddie, how did you give up smoking when you decided to break the habit? I banned cigarettes from my life and took up the peppermint pattern. And you, Carrie, how did you manage to gain control Continue Reading…

I Did It My Way

Ashlie Michener sat in the passenger seat of the family Suburban sobbing. Her ponytail was cinched down tight at the crown of her head, and the August sun refracted into tiny prisms as it glinted against her damp cheeks. Today was "kindergarten roundup" and "meet the teacher" day. All summer Ashlie had anticipated this moment. Continue Reading…

Your Fix (And How to Fix It)

Situation ethics, hedonism, individual rights, humanism, the New Age… To convince Modern Man of his desperate need for a savior can prove to be a formidable, if not a seemingly impossible, task. Man is his own god, his own master; his creed is self-reliance, or as William Ernest Henley put it in his poem, "Invictus": Continue Reading…
