The Open Door in Troas

Do you ever get discouraged in your efforts at reaching out to others with the gospel message? Does it seem like we are teaching hearts of stone that have no interest in God’s gracious offer of a new life? Learn to accept the fact that some doors are closed, and that is God’s will

Counting Friends

“The wicked have only accomplices, the voluptuous have only companions in debauchery; self-seekers have only associates; politicians have only their factions; the generality of idle men has only connections; princes have only courtiers; virtuous men alone possess friends.” (Voltaire)

Andronicus and Junia

“It is a great thing to go down to history as the man with the open house or as the man with the brotherly heart. Someday people will sum us up in one sentence. What will that sentence be?” (William Barclay, The Letter to the Romans, Westminster, rev. ed., p. 220)
