Gospel Charm

Posted May 19, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |1 Comments

Traditionally various people find a way to feature what is important to them by wearing a symbol of it, like a necklace. Sometimes the physical symbol is given the power to bring good luck or to ward off evil influences. Wisdom says that if you are going to value something that much, it should be steadfast love and faithfulness. These two virtues should not only hang around your neck, but be imbedded in your heart. Good things are in store for those who value these above all else.... Keep Reading

Parental Protection

Posted May 12, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

God has always been faithful to provide what we need. He designed the family so that we could trust the wisdom available through the perspectives of both father and mother. Just like there was a serpent in the Garden, there are enticing peers out there, tempting the young to break the apron strings and try out their wings. It is alarming to see just how powerful peer pressure is. The immature can easily be drawn into all kinds of destructive behavior just to fit in with the gang.... Keep Reading

Gospel Wisdom

Posted April 28, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

It is what we don't know that scares us. Since the serpent's first temptation, Adam's entire race has longed to know everything. When we don't know, everything is risky. Humanity has taken various approaches to this dilemma, including the ridiculous presumption that not even God knows---or worse, that there is no God and no fixed truth. That is a high price to pay intellectually just to ease the angst of not knowing.... Keep Reading

Contentment As Wealth

Posted April 21, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |1 Comments

My father bought a small farm from my grandfather back when he was first married. He reared five children and sought to train them to work hard and accept responsibility. In his latter years, he piddled around with a few head of cattle and spent a lot of time sitting under the big oak tree in his yard. It was in that setting that a discussion took place that significantly impacted my life.... Keep Reading

Dirty, But Not Dirt

Posted April 14, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

The disciples had met together with Jesus for the final meal. They had been walking on manure-strewn streets to get there. Their feet were smelly and dirty. Jesus took the towel and basin and began washing their feet. Peter protested, but Jesus shook him with the statement, "If I do not wash you, you have no share with me."... Keep Reading

Easter Gives Hope

Posted April 1, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

We live in that special time between the Resurrection of Jesus and the final resurrection of our own bodies. Some have unfortunately focused on the individual benefit of going to heaven. Though that is a great comfort for believers, it is not all that Easter is about. Actually, the focus of the New Testament is that Jesus' resurrection was the beginning of a new creation. The hopes of Israel were fulfilled in Jesus: the new Noah, the ultimate prophet, and the final king.... Keep Reading

Living to Please

Posted March 25, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

We are uniquely designed to please someone. We get a measure of satisfaction from pleasing someone else that is essential to our joy. This need drives us to complex relationships as we terribly complicate our lives by adopting many people to please. It would be so much simpler if there were but one person to please and all the other people in our lives were for serving. That is the hope of the gospel of Jesus. He has done all that is necessary to restore humans to the original plan of living to please God and to bless others.... Keep Reading

You Gotta Have Hope

Posted March 10, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

After reading some religious periodicals about the state of affairs on God's earth, we might wonder if the Scriptures are ever consulted. And if they are, how is hope so overlooked? Too many pundits are prophesying doom. They see the earth teetering on the brink of destruction with nothing to do but make sure we are ready to die.... Keep Reading

It's Grace All the Way

Posted February 24, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

The letter to the Colossians begins with the prayer for grace to be extended and ends with the same. Sadly, many Christians believe that we get into the family of God by grace, but once there we must grow and mature by our own methods. It is enough, they argue, that God would forgive our past sins and let us in. We can't expect him to spoil us by continuing to treat us with just grace.... Keep Reading

Salty Speech

Posted February 17, 2015 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

Of course, Paul is not instructing his readers to use profanity, as might be interpreted in today's society. He is encouraging them and us to live and speak in such a way that every opportunity with outsiders would be used to the very best end.... Keep Reading
