You in God’s Kingdom

Imagine God’s Kingdom in You Here is a painting, in words, of God’s grace to His children. Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” – John 3:3 As one that is born again, imagine that God placed in your heart the …

Why Rock Excavation Service?

The question came up recently as to why I used a name for this site that sounds like a company. Why “Rock Excavation Service?” I chose this name because I saw that Jesus, our living Savior, was being ignored and even buried by many good deeds. I heard people saying that they were “spiritual.” People …

Reservoirs of Life

Lately, I’ve been contemplating what God desires from us as followers of His Son, Jesus Christ, and citizens in His holy kingdom. “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 2:11 Living according to the Spirit is the nature of believers. I’ve lived, now, as a Christian for many years. During my life’s journey, I’ve met a lot of …

As Slow as a Honda 360

I rode motorcycles for decades when I was younger. I owned my fair share of motorcycles; Hondas, a Chopper, a Suzuki, and so forth. When I first started riding, I had a Honda 360 cc, a small, low-power cycle. In those days, I didn’t appreciate the value of power, that is until I rode with …

From One Zacchaeus to Another

Do you remember when you gave your life to Jesus? I know some of us may not remember a specific moment. Perhaps we were too young or it has been too long. Still, I hope you remember that first touch from our Savior. Salvation seems to be out of style right now. The news of …

Categorized Compassion

When a person lives a worldly life, that person is subject to worldly compassion. Worldly compassion is not an act of love but a tool to be used. The well-known passage of Scripture called “the parable of the lost son” (Luke 15:11-32) teaches us many lessons, one of which is the damage from categorized compassion. …

Objective Morality

Morals are objective, not subjective. This truth means that morals are discovered, not invented. If I walk in my backyard and find a four-leaf clover, it’s not because I imagined it, argued it into existence, or just decided that there should be four-leaf clovers. Morals just “are.” They don’t change due to circumstances or human …

Don’t Cry

12 A funeral procession was coming out as he [Jesus] approached the village gate. The young man who had died was a widow’s only son, and a large crowd from the village was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart overflowed with compassion. “Don’t cry!” he said. 14 Then he walked over …

Changes in Local Churches

Let me just say, right up front, that you may strongly disagree with my perspective. That’s healthy. I just want to get this topic out in the open. There is a specific change to our local churches that I’ve observed during the past twenty years. This change concerns me because some church leaders have added …
