Obeying God even when it makes no sense

I was reading over the account of Noah this morning and was struck by the amount of faith that he showed in obeying God in building the ark for the pending floods despite the lack of evidence to naturally do so. Although the Bible doesn’t specifically say it, there’s the possibility that it had never rained before. Genesis 2:6 says that a mist was going up…

No Power in Faith

I acquired a Kindle this past Spring. It has been one of the best technology purchases I’ve made in recent years – not so much because of the technology, but because it has opened the door to the writings of men of God.

The will is saluted as the grand power of the human soul which is completely free to direct our lives. But from what is it free? And what is its power?

Answered Prayer

I recently read an  interesting story about a church that was trying to impact their community for the Glory of the Lord. However, their reaction was sadly telling when God answered their prayers. It appears that this story is more than likely an urban legend but the story is still funny. ____________________________ In a small Texas town, Drummond’s bar began…
