Martin Luther wrote many hymns, most notably “A Mighty Fortress.” His best-known Christmas carol is “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come.” Luther originally wrote it for his family’s Christmas Eve devotions in 1531. The version printed in the Lutheran Hymnal contains 15 stanzas. Here are two from the middle of the song: Ah, Lord, […]
Love God. Love people. Serve God. Serve people. Everything else is details.
In the morning, when I rise In the morning, when I rise In the morning, when I rise Give me Jesus Give me Jesus Give me Jesus You can have all this world Just give me Jesus
Lord Jesus, when I am tempted to give up today, give me grace to take one more step with you. Amen.
We ought to enjoy life. “Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do.” (Ecclesiastes 9:7). Of all the people in the world, we should be the ones having the best time. After all, we know we aren’t going to […]
The Christian is a person who thinks not of his rights but of his debts. We owe Jesus everything. He bought us with the cost of his own life. We are no longer free to do what we want, but only what he wants. He bought us, he paid for us, we belong only to […]
Many years ago a man hired an experienced guide to lead him on a hike into the Swiss Alps. After many hours they came to a high and remote mountain pass. To the man’s dismay, he saw that that path had almost been washed out. What could he do? To the left was a sheer […]
Have you been forgiven? Then forgive. Have you found mercy? Then show mercy. Have you received a blessing? Then bless others. Just take what God has given you and give it away to someone else. That’s the whole Christian life in just one sentence.
Direction makes all the difference. I would rather be one foot away from hell heading toward heaven than one foot away from heaven heading toward hell.
What will you boast about when you stand before the Lord? Your job . . . a big bank account . . . a new house . . . all the important people you know? Do you think that will impress the Lord Jesus Christ? I don’t think so. In that day the only thing […]

“To dismiss the Bible is to dismiss Jesus Christ. Don’t make that mistake.” Billy Graham
“When the angels had left them and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let’s go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us’” (Luke 2:15). “Let’s go straight to Bethlehem.” That’s what the shepherds said to each other, and that’s good advice as we […]
Sometimes we just have to let go. How hard that is for most of us. Letting go doesn’t exactly mean giving up. It doesn’t mean passively sitting by while the world takes advantage of us. Letting go means giving up the right to always be in control. Letting go means admitting that you aren’t calling […]
“How many of our churches today are sound, respectable–and lukewarm? What, then, must Christ’s word be to them? What have we to hope for?–unless, by the mercy of God who in wrath remembers mercy, we find zeal to repent? Revive us, O Lord, before Judgment falls!” J. I. Packer
Al Capone once put it this way, “When I sell whiskey, they call it bootlegging; when my patrons serve it on Lake Shore Drive, they call it hospitality.” How true. It all depends on who’s doing the buying and the selling and the serving. We’re all quick to condemn in others what we excuse in […]

“He may come at any time. He’s sure to come some time. Let’s be ready when he does come.” Andrew Blackwood
