Sergeant York, The Rest Of The Story

Text: “let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised” (Heb 10:23).
Recently, I wrote about Sgt. Alvin York, one of the most decorated soldiers in WW1, mentioning that the home place of Sgt. York was on the route of a trip that I had planned.
Well, during that trip I visited the York home place, the York burial site and a museum dedicated to Sgt. York.
During a conversation with the museum curator, I mentioned my admiration for Sgt. York and his heroic service to our country. Also, I mentioned that I had used him in an article that I had recently written. Seeing my enthusiasm, she said, “His son was just here.” Then, pausing as she looked outside, she said, “That’s him getting in the car.”


Does Jesus Care?

“. . . casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you”(1 Peter 5:7 NASU).
There were at least two occasions when people asked if Jesus even cared. Can you imagine that? The most compassionate, loving person who ever lived was questioned about His caring for them!


“As We Weigh Anchor”

“This hope we have an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil” (Heb. 6:19).
Most anchors today are seen as advertising symbols, possibly relating to their strength or reliability, while the anchor picture on coins and medals has come to mean hope. For Christians, the anchor is applied to our great hope, which supplies a brace against the drift of the tide and the earth’s merciless ocean of trials.
