God’s Glory and Man’s Dignity

Dear Neighbor,

The Lord our God is majestic, for his splendor is above the heavens. Many years ago God made me a father. I remember the day of our daughters birth. I was not there for the birth of our son but I was there for the birth of our daughter. All human beings have dignity because we are different than every other animal on the earth. Human beings are created in the image of God. When considering a child, one must ask, “How awesome is the God who created?”

We should also consider the heavens and look up at the sky. All of creation is the work of God’s hands. When seeing the expanse from the earth one must ask, “How awesome is the God who created the universe and all that it contains?” Then I must ask, who am I, or what is man that God even thinks of us, but God does care for us. 

God has made man a little lower than God. He has crowned man with glory and majesty. He did this from creation, when He gave man to rule over his creation. All of the earth has been put under the feet of man. All of the creatures on the earth, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea are under man.

All have sinned and fall short of his glory and the wages for sin is death, but God gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

How majestic is the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in all the earth!

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
