What is lukewarm?
While praying about and then writing yesterday’s Morning Thought, I had an open-my-eyes moment; it all made sense.
Jesus said in Rev 3:15-16, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Continue reading

A definitive statement on living for Jesus.

I saw a Facebook status pop up on Sunday evening from a young college girl in Texarkana.
This is what she said; Don’t go out and get drunk on a Saturday night and the next morning make a status about how much you love Jesus. Be one way or the other! Revelation 3: 15-16 Continue reading

Become Accountable

I take my Christianity very seriously!
I try not to do anything to bring dishonor to my Lord and Savior; this is a full time effort that seems to be getting easier as years go by.
Perhaps it is because for so long I have worked at not cussing, not getting excessively angry, watching where I go, and avoiding danger zones on the Internet. Continue reading

It’s Not Too Late

Turn at my rebuke. Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Prov 1:23
What a wonderful promise from the Lord.
Who would not want God’s Spirit poured upon them; to feel His sweet presence in all that we do, not just at church but at work, at school, at a ball game, in Wal-Mart; anywhere you are. Continue reading


I’ve been up since early this morning when a wrong number woke me up at 2am.
I lay in bed for an hour and was just about to doze off to sleep (maybe) when a thunderstorm started rumbling its way toward me.
So I got up.
Now that may be early for me but it may be late for you. Continue reading

How Simple Is It?

You’ve heard it said a thousand times, “getting saved is so simple that a child can understand it.”
But I wonder if we aren’t making it more difficult than it is.
What does it take for salvation?
When I was 18 I began to ask myself that same question. Continue reading

Pick Up A Load Of Kindness

Give generously, for your gifts will return to you later. Eccl 11:1 NLT
Sunday morning, Michael, a friend of mine wrote on Facebook that he had to make a delivery to Ennis, Tx.
Linda and I found a kolache shop in Ennis a few years ago and when we are taking I-45 towards Dallas, we always stop and load up. Continue reading

The Viewpoint

Last Saturday my church had our annual Back-To-School outing at Lake Tejas.
As I always like to do, I was on the edge of the water taking pictures of our group.
It’s hard to look inconspicuous when you’re pointing a camera with a big zoom lens at people. Continue reading

A Little Overtime Never Hurt Anyone

On the first day of the week, we gathered to observe the Lord’s Supper. Paul was preaching; and since he was leaving the next day, he talked until midnight. The upstairs room where we met was lighted with many flickering lamps. As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Continue reading

Forget the Insults – Just Preach Jesus

We’ve been studying Christian apologetics on Wednesday evenings at church.
Last night we learned something from Acts.
While Paul was in Athens waiting on his companions to arrive, his spirit was provoked within him when he saw that the city was given over to idols. Continue reading
