He rebuked the wind and said… “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39 Half the disciples were seasoned sailors. They’d weathered waves, lightening, and damaging winds, but this storm scared even them. They’d done everything they knew to do, but it kept getting worse. Fear replaced confidence…

March Madness | Madness of Chaos | Trouble Breeds Trouble

Trouble pursues the sinner, but the righteous are rewarded with good things. Proverbs 13:21 Another Washington coverup. A new Hollywood scandal. A mega-church pastor caught in another affair.

March Madness | The Madness of Chaos | Temporary Suffering

Some were fools; they rebelled and suffered for their sins.  Psalm 107:17 “I don’t know why God is testing me so much,” Monica moaned. “My bills are sky high after Lance moved out. I guess God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.” Lydia glanced at her sister. “Why do you think this is…

…afflicted on every side: conflicts without, fears within. But God…comforted us by the coming of Titus.  2 Cor. 7:6-7 The lamplight was nearly gone as Paul lowered the quill pen and rubbed his grainy eyes. He was so tired. So weary. The churches he had started and loved like his own children were plagued with…

Unmasked | Sidekicks | Supporting Roles

I, Tertius, who wrote down this letter, greet you in the Lord.  Romans 16:22 He wasn’t brilliant, couldn’t sing or preach, but he had good handwriting. That may have been his only talent. How insignificant Tertius may have felt as he sat in the corner, listening to Paul, elite Pharisee turned Christian. The conversations floating…

Unmasked | Sidekicks | Help Each Other Up

If one person falls, the other can…help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.  Ecclesiastes 4:10 A TV commercial in the ‘80’s featured an old lady on the floor crying, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” The ad was for a medical alert device, but the line was so cheesy it became…

Unmasked | Sidekicks | We Need Help

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.  Ecclesiastes 4:9 Batman had Robin, Captain America had Bucky, and the Lone Ranger had Tonto.
