THE ULTIMATE CURE-ALL

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.” 1 Corinthians 16:23 In the early days before modern medicine, “cure-alls” were the rage. In particular, during the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s there were all kinds of brands of “cure-alls.” From “Drakes Universal Pill” to “Doctor Thackery’s Miraculous Cure-All,” these potions promised results for healing from every ailment imaginable. To this day, despite the horrible taste, Castor Oil is still used by many as a cure-all for various health issues. I still remember hearing old-timers talk about getting a dose of Castor Oil on a regular basis, and[…]

THE REMINDER

“Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it.” 1 Corinthians 15:1 If you’re like most folks, you need a lot of reminders. In fact, as I’ve been sitting here reading and writing this post, I’ve received two reminders from my phone about an upcoming appointment. My “catchall reminder” is my wife. I’ll often end a text sharing some info with her and asking her “don’t let me forget…”. Just recently she responded to me with, “I don’t know that I[…]

THE NAME HE SEES

“I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done, I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people.” Psalm 52:9 What’s in a name? A lot, depending upon who, and why the name is given. In Bible times for example, “last names,” which really weren’t last names in the way we think of them, were given to people based on where they were from. For example, when we say, “Jesus of Nazareth,” Nazareth was the name given to Jesus that let everyone know where He was from. In more modern times, like the[…]

THE GREATEST

“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”  1 Corinthian 13:13 From the official website of the movie No Greater Love; “No Greater Love, the award-winning documentary, invites the audience to experience war and its aftermath from a soldier’s perspective.” “No Greater Love depicts the combat deployment of the legendary “No Slack” Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, through the eyes of Army Chaplain Justin David Roberts. While deployed in Afghanistan, Justin decided to carry a camera to document the hardships his unit endured. He captured not only the gritty reality of war but also the incredibly[…]
