IS THE WORLD COMING TO AN END? The terror in Israel continues on a daily basis. Memories of September 11 haunt the corners of every mind in America. Fires burn out of control, droughts plague vast areas of the land, crime is on the rise, immorality runs unchecked and according to Time Magazine, “One-third of Americans say they are paying more attention now to how the news might relate to the end of the world” [July 1, 2002; p. 42]. What do all these…

PUTTING THE PREACHER IN HIS PLACE Carlos Valenzuela is coming to work with the Tomlinson Run church.  We are all very excited that he and his family are moving here.  His addition to the work here is very important to us.  In this article, I want to examine how we should think of him. • 1 Corinthians 4:1 (NKJV) Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Preachers are not over…

THE CONSTANT BATTLE WITH IMPATIENCE Since patience is a virtue (2Peter 1:6), it should be no great surprise that Satan would often challenge us with the temptation to be impatient. Most people have had a lot of practice being impatient. We have grown accustomed to having what we want, when we want it. When that doesn’t happen, we frequently become impatient, which inevitably leads to other problems. A child may throw a tantrum if he has to wait his turn,…

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE WORLD? The world is a mess.  If you asked people what is wrong with the world, you would get a large variety of answers.  The answers depend on who you ask.  The poor might say, “The rich people won’t give us a chance.”  The rich might say in response, “The poor are lazy.”  Older people might say, “The young people don’t work the way we used to.”  The young might say, “The old people are afraid…

THE TEMPORAL GIFTS OF GOD Do you ever think of the things God has given us? Do you realize that everything we have is from God? The temporal things that surround us are the blessings of God. It is God’s love that has brought these precious things to our enjoyment. Did you know that our life, breath, and everything we have is the gift of God? Do you remember when God created man that He formed him out of the…

WEARY OF REPENTING The history of God’s longsuffering with the Israelites is lengthy. It is beyond human comprehension why He was so patient with them, but such is the difference between the Lord and man. So far is His mercy above our understanding that after He takes the time to tell us He will pardon the repentant (Isa. 55:6-7), He then goes on to explain His actions: “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’…

SILENCE We live in a world surrounded by noise. We listen to music while in the car, while making dinner, or even on a hike. We turn the tv on just to have it in the background and, on that tv are loud people with loud personalities competing with louder personalities to determine who can be the loudest personality. Every time there is a lull in a conversation, we call it an “awkward silence.” Why are we afraid to be…

LET ME THANK YOU We are remarkably blessed by our Eternal Father. He gives us our everyday needs, whether through gifts or through the capacity to work for them. He also gives us uncountable things we do not need, but things that give us joy, comfort, and knowledge. As David sang: “Let the LORD be magnified Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servants” (Psalm 35:27). He gives us the strength and capacity to learn and grow from the…
