Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13 I have always loved our military. Had God not called me into the ministry, then very possibly, I would have joined one of our branches of service. I have read a lot of books describing what our soldiers go through, and it humbles me to see the sacrifices they are willing to make. Our military is comp
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not. Luke 22:31-32 The gladiators were a very rough bunch of men. They had what could quite easily be considered the worst job in the world. Their one task every time they went to work was to stay alive. The Romans got great thrill and enjoyment out of watching two gladiators fight each other to the death. Could yo
For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish. 2 Corinthians 2:15 We live out in the country in Virginia, and our former neighbor built a chicken coop right on the border between their property and ours. If you have ever been around chickens, then you know it does not take long for them to give a very unmistakable smell, and not a goo

Ephesians 3:8 I have been intrigued by the story of Forrest Fenn since he first hid his treasure and publish
For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish. 2 Corinthians 2:15 Have you ever been walking behind a guy whose twenty-four hour deodorant had obviously worn off? You try to stay as far away as possible. Or, have you ever had to take a trip on an airplane and gotten stuck next to the guy who apparently rolled out of bed with yesterday’s sweat

Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Acts 8:22-23 Imagine sitting in the courtroom of a king in the ancient days. A once-faithful servant was caught in the act of plotting the murder of his king and is now standing trial before the
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 Growing up, one of the sports I really enjoyed was wrestling. I’m not talking about the fake stuff where they beat each other over the head with chairs and throw punch
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:8-17 Hide and seek is arguably one of the most popular games of all time. It is free and fun. When I was growing up, we used to play it everywhere – in the house, in the dark, in a dark house, in the barn, and about anywhere else we could think of when we needed to be amused and occupied. On several occasions, the hiding spot that I had was so good that I didn’t want to come out, even afte
