  • Do you desire more knowledge of God?

     We read in II Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” (NIV) These words got me to thinking about how we know who God is.  I don’t doubt God has made himself known to us, but in the day-to-day life of most people this seems to be an elusive knowledge.

  • The newlywed checklist

    By Zack Van Zant

     “In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.”

    -William Penn

  • United we stand, divided we fall

    By Matt Bevin

    A new day is dawning in Kentucky. For the first time in many years, the winds of financial responsibility have begun to blow briskly through the marble halls of Frankfort. These welcome breezes are ushering in the promise of a fresh start for the Commonwealth. 

  • Greet one another with a holy kiss

     A rather legalistic seminary student wanted to have a scriptural basis for everything he did. When he started falling in love he wanted to kiss her, but he just couldn’t find a scripture chapter and verse that seemed to make him feel right about giving her that kiss. So, true to his conscience, he would simply walk her to the dormitory each night, look at her longingly, and then say “Good night.”

  • Not disability, just different

     When I was young – too young to remember how old I was – I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  At the time, it was such a little-known condition that the psychologists I worked with couldn’t recognize it and initially said I had ADHD.  

    Now, people know a bit more.  

  • We must stop wasteful spending now

    By Rand Paul

     Our country is running a deficit – a very serious deficit. We are fiscally broke and there is no end in sight to curb the limitless spending in Washington. I am outraged by the waste that pollutes our government. It makes my blood boil to see money that should be spent defending our country, instead being wasted. 

  • Making it through the rain

    I sped down the interstate as comfortably as I could in the raging thunderstorm.  Lightning cracked across the evening sky, but I couldn’t stop because I had a dinner date with my girlfriends in Dayton, Ohio.   

  • Everyday evangelism

     There is a story that when Billy Graham was visiting a city for one of his crusades. 

    He was looking for a place to mail a letter and was walking around the city for a while.  He came across a young boy and asked the boy if he knew how to get to the post office. The boy gave Billy Graham the directions and before leaving, Billy said to the boy, “Come on over to the arena tonight, and I’ll tell you how to get to heaven.”
