IT’S FRIDAY. BUT SUNDAY’S COMING! The Day the Disciples Deserted Jesus

This morning I’m reblogging a post from 6 years ago that was a part of a weekly column we wrote for 2 years. Hope it helps you. Enjoy!

ThePreachersWord

The Psalmist prophesied it.  Jesus predicted it would happen.  Within hours.  Peter emphatically denied it could ever occur.  And so nodded all the disciples in agreement.  They would never  do that!  Do what?

My Future Plans

We are now four months into this new chapter of our lives combining travel with ministry and preaching opportunities. We have been to 16 states and 8 countries.

I have been blessed to preach 43 times and teach 18 classes. Currently, we are enjoying the Blue Ridge Mountains as we travel to Kettering, Ohio, for a gospel meeting. Following that, we’re headed to the Smoky Mountains and I will preach in Cosby, Tennessee, on October 21.

A Serious Admonition To Bible Teachers

In a recent interview with CBN News, Dr James Dobson issued this warning, “May we be careful with the way we speak and think and talk against those who are opposed to everything we believe. You have to maintain a spirit of charity and love, and God will bless us if we do.

Dobson’s words ring particularly true this morning as I read from James 3 this sobering admonition. “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.” Continue reading

A Tribute To Tyndale

On this date in history, October 4, 1537, the first complete English-language Bible was printed, with translations by William Tyndale and Miles Coverdale.

Inspired by a copy of Martin Luther’s German Bible, Tyndale began translating the New Testament into English about 1522 using the Greek text compiled by Erasmus, which was older than the Latin Vulgate.

When Tyndale’s intention was made known to the Bishop of London, he was officially denied permission, so under the threat of being labeled a heretic, he was forced to flee England, but persisted in his efforts. Continue reading

Priceless Scribbles

Children are on my mind this week, as we enjoy time with our grandchildren. This post was penned 6 years ago, 2 years before the first one was born. It takes on special meaning this morning as I’ve been up since 5 AM trying to comfort little Katernine Joy and watch her attempt to scribble in one of my books! Enjoy!

ThePreachersWord

I recently came across a true story by Richard Fairchild that was published many years ago in the Christian Reader. It was called “Priceless Scribbles.” He tells about a father who touched his son’s life in a unique and unexpected way.

A young boy watched as his father walked into the living room. He noticed that his younger brother, John, began to cower slightly as their dad entered. The older boy sensed that John had done something wrong. Then he saw from a distance what his brother had done. The younger boy had opened his father’s brand new hymnal and scribbled all over the first page with a pen.

Eagles Push

In his book, with the captivating title, “Even Eagles Need A Push,” Dave McNally tells about a man being awakened one night with a loud knock at the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock. It’s 3:30 AM!

“I’m not getting out of bed at this time,” he thinks, and rolls over. Then, a louder knock follows.

“Aren’t you going to answer that?” whispers his wife.

So he drags himself out of bed, and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is a man standing at the door. It doesn’t take him long to realize the man is drunk.
