PRESS ON

“I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”  Philippians 3:14 If you’ve ever seen the movieSecretariat, you know how inspiring it is. One friend of mine has seen it so many times that he almost has every line in the movie memorized. Secretariat, a race horse that overcame incredible odds, set race horse records that still stand to this day, and in his time, he inspired Americans and the world with his tenacity to press on toward the finish line, often leaving his competitors far,[…]

GOD’S TWO-STEP

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Philippians 2:13 I may have a few moves, but I wouldn’t consider myself much of a dancer. Dancing, however, has been around for ages and, in scripture, we even see dance as a means of worship that pleases God.  The “two-step” has been called the “most popular couples dance” in the US, and most dance authorities believe it’s because of its simplicity. With just two basic moves the two-step gives dancers the basis for a variety of different dancing genres. The more a[…]

PURPOSEFUL BUILDER

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6 An article in the New York Daily, recounting the history of the Brooklyn Bridge, sites that, “Emily Warren Roebling (1843-1903) succeeded her father-in-law, John Roebling, and her husband, Washington Roebling, as the field engineer aiding her disabled husband to completion of the Brooklyn Bridge.”Roebling was an accidental engineer.

KEEP YOUR HELMET ON

“Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.” Ephesians 6:17 “Get your helmet on,” the sergeant barked out, and I could tell his patience was wearing thin. I just wasn’t used to wearing it and it felt heavy and uncomfortable. As a brig guard, it was one of only two or three nights I had spent in the field while in the Marine Corps. However, “Every Marine a rifleman” was more than just a slogan and[…]

GREATER LOVE

“Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”  Ephesians 5:2 NLT As a Marine Corps Pilot and flying for the legendary Blue Angels, Jeff was living his dream. In addition to being a top aviator, Jeff was also loyal, kind, compassionate and a loving father and husband. Life couldn’t have been better for Jeff as he had so much to live for. But, on one routine afternoon, his life was cut short. Not because someone took his life, but because he gave[…]
