Today, I recited John chapter 12 vs 27 – 50 and read 1 Samuel 25 – 27. The Father spoke to the Son in the hearing of the people and his voice sounded like thunder. David said to Saul, “The Lord will repay each man for his righteousness and his faithfulness; for the Lord delivered you into my hand today, but I refused to stretch out my hand against the Lord’s anointed.” (1 Sm 26:23) This is the second time that David had refused to put Saul to death when he had been delivered into his hand. David was against Nebal for he had dishonored David and his men but Abigail his wife was kind to David and he realized that he should not avenge by his own hand. This interaction was fresh on his mind when he came upon Saul in the field. From the song of Moses Deuteronomy 32:35

“Vengeance is Mine, and retribution,
In due time their foot will slip;
For the day of their calamity is near,
And the impending things are hastening upon them.”

Yesterday, I had the day off work. I exercised on an elliptical machine for 20 minutes and a stationary bike for 20 minutes. I have been using the time on these machines to view episodes of the Way of the Master television program on YouTube. This morning I will run outside before going to work and I am looking forward to doing a run outside. I am scheduled to be at work from 9:00am – 4:30pm. I believe that I am scheduled to do Cardiac Rehab orientations which involves researching electronic patient charts and compiling a paper chart for use in Cardiac Rehab, followed by an interview and assessment of the patient. I enjoy the time that I spend with the patients but the majority of the time is clerical rather than clinical. I will spend about 1 hour each with 2 patients today, and the remainder of time working on their charts and the charts of others. However, it is necessary and I do get to know them by reviewing their health history and talking with them.

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

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.”

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
