what can wash away my sin?

Having done professional housecleaning for a several years now, I've learned a few lessons, not least of which is: Cleaning products and rags are expendable. They don't cost much and while they serve a vital role in the cleaning process, they aren't precious to me at all.

the plans of GOD

He had treasured so many hopes for that boy, the firstborn of his beautiful wife Rachel. But then they were lost all in a moment, that one dreadful instant when ten of his sons brought him the coat of many colors drenched in blood. All the dreams he had cherished were gone. Even Joseph's dreams, those dreams... Continue Reading →

the boldness of compassion

Picture the scene on this Sabbath day, certainly similar to so many others. There is a man with a withered hand, and perhaps parents tell their children not to stare at him.

The truth shall not fail, all nations be reached. "Though evil seems great, I triumph over sin. The Lamb that was slain shall the victory win.... Continue Reading →

If you came over to my house on any given day, you'd probably hear someone singing "Zacchaeus" at some point. "Zacchaeus was a wee little man and a wee little man was he.  He climbed up in a sycamore tree for the Lord he wanted to see..." And so on, the song goes. The other... Continue Reading →
