So far, Paul hasn’t said much about his imprisonment and his expectations for the future. However, in this week’s passage, he gives an indication that he sees the end in sight. You can see his thoughts in 2 Timothy 4:6-7: Earlier in the letter, Paul mentioned that he is in prison, something Timothy was surely aware of (2 Timothy 1:8, 12, 16, and 2:9). However, here he indicates that he feels his time on earth is about over. He must make sure»

Luke 9:61-62 Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.” Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” William Borden was a young man who had a passion to make an impact for Jesus Christ.

The Fighter Verses focus on the character and worth of our great God, battling against our fleshly desires, and the hope of the Gospel. I am very excited about the next few weeks with the fighter verses.  Last week was probably one of the hardest for me so far (even though we are only in week 4) but the type spent on this passage was worth it.  Last week’s verse was Philippians 3:7-8 “But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sa»

The past few days have been landmark around our house. Potty training came in like a lion and out like a lamb. Many flushes, gold-stars and prizes later and our toddler has reached porcelain status. She’s on her way to becoming a full-fledged big kid. I take no credit. I was like an understudy as my wife played the starring role as master trainer. Some quick observations I had this week: My wife is a toddler whisperer. To witness her at work as»
