DON’T BE A FOOL

This world is incredible and is full of mysteries. The sun; a massive heat pump that sits just far enough from the earth to make our climate such that life can be sustained on it, containing thousands of gallons of water that is cycled daily. Evaporated from the oceans condensed into cloud formations, formulated into rain storms that shower down onto the land of the earth were the plants of the earth drink, the animals of the earth drink, and the men of the earth drink, 60% of our bodies are water, we couldn’t live without it, the water is returned to the sea by streams. It is a massive system that works to absolute precision. All compounds exist in three forms; as a solid, a liquid and as a gas. Water is such that it exist as a solid, liquid, and as a gas within a very tight spectrum of temperatures; go beyond that tight spectrum of temperatures it exist as either a gas or solid, life has to have liquid water to exist, so the temperatures of the earth must be maintained within a very narrow spectrum in order for liquid water to be available at all times. I said earlier that all compounds have three states; solid, liquid, and gas. All compounds except one are their densest as a solid meaning the molecules are closest together when a solid, spread apart to become a liquid, and spread apart even further to become a gas. One compound is different and that is water. Water actually becomes lighter when it is transformed into a solid, the water molecules spread apart, and that is why ice floats on water. If water acted like all other compounds on earth when it froze and became a solid it would sink, it is very good for us that water doesn’t sink. If water did sink when frozen we would have a problem, in time all the water of the earth would freeze and be contained at the poles. Water at the poles freezes at the surface but maintains its liquid state under the ice, if it sank once solid the ice would sink to the bottom of the ocean allowing the surface water to freeze and sink until finally it was all just a solid block of ice.

Why is this? Why is it that this one substance that we need to sustain life is so different than all others? Need I say that it is by design! When I see this it has all the markings of intelligent design, there is no other reason for it. This is by intelligent design! There is no reason for water to act differently than all other compounds but it does. The one substance that we need to sustain life is designed in such a way to insure that there is always some of it available on earth in its liquid state. That the earth is set just far enough from the sun to give us a temperate climate that keeps water available in a liquid state at all times. That the earth is placed just far enough from the sun to cause water to transform into a gas rise into the atmosphere condense then fall back down to the earth providing life giving water available to all creatures. What a beautiful system so designed. To look at this and say there is no God one would have to be a fool! “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise they became fools”. “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’". Creation it self is evidence enough of the Creator, and if there is a Creator you better know who He is and how to be reconciled to Him.

“He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as receive Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”. Let me introduce you to my God, my King, my Savior, Jesus Christ! Trust in Him alone for salvation. That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”. "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ".

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
