Practical Proverbial, from Philemon, 18 September 2019

…because I hear about your love and faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints.  Philemon 5 (EHV). Word gets around.  If you let it, a single action can define you for years, maybe even a lifetime.   That happens because people gossip, people talk, word gets around.  If you thinkContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Philemon, 18 September 2019”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 17 June 2019

Do your best to come to me quickly.  2 Timothy 4:9 (NIV). For those who say that Paul made up the things in his letters, there’s this little nugget of reality.   When you’re in trouble, you call for help.   When things are rough, you reach out a helping hand.   You do it; I do it;Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 17 June 2019”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 15 May 19

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  2 Timothy 3:1 (NIV). This section of 2 Timothy talks about the end times.   It’s heavy stuff, not for the faint of faith.    And it’s heavy stuff that people have been hauling, dreading, and contemplating for two thousand years. Wikipedia defines “Christian eschatology”Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 15 May 19”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 14 August 2018

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. 2 Thessalonians 3:1 (NIV). If you study the spread of Christianity, you see that Paul’s prayer was answered.   A word of mouth proposition, Christianity spread all over theContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 14 August 2018”

Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 13 August 2018

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 (NIV). Have you noticed that Paul likes flowery benedictions?   He does this in most of his letters; why? Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 2 Thessalonians, 13 August 2018”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Thessalonians, 29 January 2018

We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition.  1 Thessalonians 2:2. Something else needs to be said before we move on.  To paraphrase Ecclesiastes, without God, everything is meaningless butContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Thessalonians, 29 January 2018”
