Greenhouses And Salvation

Ponder: Grace, Faith, an Obedience – how are they related?
Today’s Bible Verse: “For by grace you have been saved through faith . . .” (Ephesians 2:8, NKJV).
Why is a greenhouse full of light? One answers, “Because it is made of glass.” Another replies, “Because the sun is shining.” The two answers are not contradictory; they simply approach the question from different angles. Cover the glass, and the greenhouse will be dark even at high noon; but at midnight the greenhouse will be dark no matter how much glass it has.


Old Timers Are Welcome

Today’s Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
Old timers are welcome. What was once a place for the 20-somethings to post mundane things of the present has become a meeting place for reminiscing. It is called Facebook. Someone can post a picture of some relic from the past and then invite people to “like” it if they can identify the object. It could be anything from a church key to a key that opened a can of spam to a roller skate key to a crown cork.


Are You A Werf?

Ponder: Being a religious fanatic.
Scripture: “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory . . .” (Luke 9:26 NKJV)
