Man, Have I Got Good News

When God our Savior revealed His kindness and love, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. Because of His grace He declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.
- found in Paul's letter to Titus
Hey, spread the good news. Someone is dying to hear it.

No Foreign Policy Expert . . .

I am certainly no foreign policy expert, but . . .

is it wise to announce to the world that we (the one relatively sane superpower on earth) will support doing away with all nuclear weapons . . .

while a nuclear-armed nutcase (North Korea) is firing a nuclear test missile right over our allies(Japan) and one day hopes to hit US soil with it?

I like the idea of peace through strength. Not appeasement.

I Need Jesus

Everyday, the spiritual writers say, I need to preach the Gospel to myself.

Everyday I live on this earth, I see the wisdom of this statement.

Everyday, every moment of the day, I need a Savior.

Without Jesus I can do nothing. With Him, Paul tells me, I can do all things.

I really need to know this.

I need to know that because Jesus lives in me I can indeed " . . . be patient with all."

Without Him I cannot.

Without Jesus I can do nothing.
