"If you'll make the toast and pour the juice, Sweetheart,"
said the newlywed bride, "breakfast will be ready."

"Good, what are we having for breakfast?" asked the new husband.

"Toast and juice," she replied.

If you stop believing what your professor told you
had to be true and if you start thinking for yourself
you may come to some conclusions you hadn't
expected. You may find the Bible makes more
sense than you thought or were told to think.
Allow yourself to be ruined, ruined with regard
to what you always thought could be true. Can
you believe what you don't understand?You
and I believe everyday what we don't understand
unless it comes to the issue to salvation.

1879: Railroad Bridge Collapsed

The railroad bridge across the estuary of Scotland's Tay River was
one of the great engineering projects of the Victorian era.
Consisting of 85 spans and nearly two miles long, it was the longest
bridge in the world when it was completed in 1878. Just 19 months
after it opened, on the stormy night of December 28, 1879, with a
strong gale blowing down the estuary, the bridge collapsed into the
river. A train with six carriages plunged into the water, killing 75
and leaving no survivors. The engineer who had designed the bridge
became ill and died ten months later. This disaster remains the
British Isles' worst structural engineering failure.

Two accounts of the Tay Bridge disaster:

C.S. Lewis had a sagacious eye for illustrating certain truths of culture
and history often distorted by self-absorption. Today we live in an
anxious world where sensitivities exist at the surface. As hostilities
toward God and religion are uttered in increasing intervals, I believe one
Lewis illustration in particular speaks profound insight into what has
arguably become a common vision.

Says Lewis: "God is in the dock." He is describing the difference between
modern and ancient minds in their approach to God. Ancient man, he
explains, approached God (or even the gods) as an accused person
approaches his judge. But for modern man these roles are reversed. Man
is the judge. God is in the dock.

The modern posture toward the subject of God is one leaning heavily upon a
cynical list of questions, which means that God should ready himself with
a reasonable defense for being the god who permits war and cancer, poverty
and terrorism, loneliness and pain. Some have milder questions than
others. Indeed, the trial may even end with exoneration, but the
important thing is that man seemingly holds the gavel and God is in the

Through some of the more turbulent years en route to my own faith and
belief in Christ, I too stood armed with my diary of questions, taking
more a stance of interrogator than glad follower. I vividly recall the
first time this stance occurred to me; I was reading the last chapter in
the Gospel of John.

In that scene, the disciples were fishing when Jesus appeared on the
shore; this, just days after they watched in horror as he was crucified.
The disciples quickly drew in their nets and joined Jesus who was
preparing breakfast at the fire. And then John writes, "None of the
disciples dared to ask, 'Who are you?' They knew it was the Savior."
(Footnote 1: John 21:12)

It was the word "dare" that got under my skin. It upset me that none of
them dared to ask. They had every reason to ask questions. That they
were not full of questions seemed remarkably unnatural to me.

It did not take me long to realize that I was bothered by their lack of
asking—because I dared to ask. You see, for me, God was in the dock.
But for the disciples, the very alive Christ, their teacher and friend -
indeed, God incarnate had joined them for breakfast. Can we honestly
blame them for growing silent?

There are a few fascinating truths about questions that can be seen
throughout the Bible. The first is that the questioning soul grows silent
in the presence of God. One thinks of Job whose flurry of questions was
silenced by the thunder of God's own line of questioning. (Footnote 2: Job
38-42) Or the prophet Isaiah whose grief for king Uzziah was quieted when
he saw the Lord. (Footnote 3: Isaiah 6) Even the fluent Peter grew still
on the mount of Christ's transfiguration. (Footnote 4: Matthew 17:1-6)

And in such scenes we learn a second truth: The questions God asks of us
are infinitely more revealing than any question we might ask of Him. When
God asks a question, we should fully note: it is not He that needs the
answer. Jesus once pressed the disciples, "Who do you say that I am?"
(Footnote 5: Matthew 16:13-19) At Peter's response to those words, Jesus
gave him a new name with a revealing identity.

The modern mind may approach God as if He is in the dock, but it is Jesus
who is asking. "Who do you say that I am?" That is the most revealing
question you will ever answer. (Jill Carattini)


Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment;
trust in money and you may have it taken from you;
but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded
in time or eternity. - D.L. Moody

It’s just a couple planks of wood,

Some nails and thorns; a sign.

It could never build much of anything.

But it built a bridge Divine.

The chasm wide between the worlds

Of darkness and of light,

Were spanned with two old planks of wood,

Some nails, and thorns; a sign.

It was all wrong, it all was right,

Because the only way

To span the gulf (restore our souls)

Hung on the cross that day.

The strongest force in the universe

Dripped down, a crimson red,

And demons tremble in its wake

With, "It is finished!" said.

The work was done in majesty,

The blood line clearly drawn!

We overcome the vilest test;

Our testimony and His song!

The sign up high above His head,

Needed one word to be true.

He was the King of Kings, who

Sought for me and you!

Oh, beautiful and purest Love,

Throughout eons of time,

Brought humbly by two planks of wood,

Some nails, and thorns, and a sign!

Lo, there He hangs,
Ashen figure, pinned against the wood,
God grant that I might " love Him"
Even as I should.

I draw a little closer,
To share His love divine
Then hear Him softly whisper
" Ah, foolish child of Mine "

If now I should embrace you,
My hands would stain you red
And should I bend to kiss you,
The thorns would pierce your head

Was then I learned in meekness
That love demands a price,
Was than I learned that sorrow
Was just the kiss of Christ !

May We All Remember The Sacrifice
Of God That Was So Freely Given
So That We May Find The True
Meaning of Easter.............
John 3:16

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
