Today I was studying Ephesians and the passage about putting on the full armor of God stood out to me. The real enemy in our lives is not any particular person. No matter how evil someone might be, rest assured they received their direction from Satan.

Several years ago, I met a scientist who sat next to me on a plane and I learned that he happened to be an astronaut. This guy was really fascinating. He was a biochemist and was conducting experiments on the space shuttle. His experiment was to grow crystals from proteins. In essence they grow perfectly in space because there is no gravity…

Every time I am faced with those tough decisions in life, invariably I go to the Lord in prayer.; not just once, but often. I will pray several times a day and sometimes for days, weeks and even months. I wish the Lord would allow me to meet with him every morning and just say, “OK Bob this is what I want you to do today”…

I have an acquaintance who not that long ago started a ministry and the Lord is blessing it. He has worked hard and devoted significant amounts of his resources to it and is to be congratulated. The problem as I see it is that he never gives the Lord any credit for the ministry’s accomplishments at least to me. It sounds like he is warming up to do a concert – Mi-mi-mi – whenever he discusses “his” ministry. It is all about him and hissacrifice, his brilliance, his ingenuity, his business skillset, his resources, blah blah blah

A miraculous story is coming out of northern Florida this week after what could have been a tragedy ended up in a miracle. According to CBS affiliate WBNS, two teenagers — a boy and a girl — recently found themselves in a life or death situation when they were swimming off the coast of Vilano Beach near St. Augustine and a riptide pulled them out to sea.

A good friend of mind and my former Sunday school teacher came by Honey Lake for a visit the other day and after lunch we went down to Honey Lake Church. There in the reverent tranquility and quiet beauty of that beautiful sanctuary we discussed various topics and I brought up the number one question that I desire to ask God when I die and get to heaven.

I wonder what was going through the mind of Jesus a little over 2000 years ago during this week leading up to His crucifixion. Like seeing a hurricane bearing down on us with fury He knew what would strike in mere days. Nothing can compare with the evil that would rip Him apart as He took on the sins of the world. And yet He took it all in stride.
