Trust in the Lovingkindness of the Lord

My reading this morning came from Psalms 3, 4 and 5. The world is full of wickedness and evil men but the psalmist trust in the lovingkindness of the Lord his God.

Lawlessness and evil men seem to be increasing on the earth. Either there has been a change on the earth or there has been a change in my perception. I do not know which it is and it could be a combination. The antics of the politicians, law makers and people are bothering me a great deal. I understand but I do not understand. I understand that man chose to rebel against the commandment of God but I do not understand why men choose to rebel against the will of God.

At the U.S.A. capitol, last week, there was protest that turned into rioting. For some reason, the president of the country refuses to succeed the election result. He was making accusations of fraud and these people believed what he was saying. It seems that they thought that the right course of action was to storm the capitol and stop the law makers from certifying the election. The president had petitioned the law makers of his political party to not certify the result but they followed the law set forth in the constitution. 

The law makers are now making things worse by trying to remove the president from office or impeach him during his last week in office. I do not understand! Why can they not let things rest? I understand that the persons who rioted should be prosecuted but why make things worse by removing the president from office early. 

Come Lord Jesus! Make things right on the earth. Vanquish Satan from causing trouble among men. All that I can do is pray, do what is right according to the commandment and trust in the lovingkindness of God. God the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

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
