A UNC grad walks into an empty bar in Chapel Hill & says,
"Hey, Bartender,
give me a rootbeer." So the guy sits down,
sipping his drink,
when he hears a small voice, "I like your tie."

The man turns to the bartender and says, "Did you say something?"

"No, I didn't say anything," says the bartender.

The man shrugs it off. And again he hears the small voice
call out, "Your hair looks really nice."

The man turns to the bartender and asks. "There it goes again,
didn't you hear that?"

"No, replied the bartender, "I didn't hear anything."

Once again, the man returns to his drink when he hears, "Wow,
that suit looks great on you."

"Bartender!" exclaimed the man, "I am absolutely sure I heard
something. What's going on here?"

"Oh", said the bartender. "That must be our peanuts. They're complimentary."

"Spring is Never Sudden"
Mark 4:26-29

Listen to the audio broadcast!

First, the forsythia exploded - those little yellow flowers that announce to our area that spring is finally springing. Then the dogwood explosion is detonated. It's just hard to be in a bad mood when those beautiful pink and white blossoms suddenly appear everywhere. Actually, the word "suddenly" needs a little work. The coming of the forsythia and the dogwood, and all the other stars of the Spring Extravaganza; they've been getting ready to happen for a long time. We couldn't see it, but there's been this invisible process of nourishing and growth, and then those nubby little buds start to peek out. And then, one day you start down the street and it's blazing with color that wasn't even there the day before. But sudden? Not really.

I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Spring is Never Sudden."

You may be waiting for spring in some part of your life right now. But things appear to still be pretty brown and lifeless.

Well, our word for today from the Word of God comes from Mark 4:26-29. It's an important description of the processes of God; processes that are probably at work right now in those very areas of your life that seem like they will never see spring. Here's what God says, "This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain; first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come."

Here's how God operates: First, there's the seed of what He wants to do, placed in the ground by faith. And then, as far as we can see, nothing is happening. But there is, in fact, invisible growth going on the whole time. It would be a very damaging mistake to keep digging up that seed. You know, "I got to see if anything is happening here." You're going to ruin it that way. The invisible growing time is then followed by some first signs of life. And ultimately, the long-awaited crop appears - but not really suddenly. Just like those beautiful flowers of spring.

Often when God is answering our prayer or preparing a great work, it looks for a long time as if nothing is happening. You may need to remember that right now. Think about what you've worked so hard for, prayed so hard for, and there's little or no visible result. A family member or friend you've tried to reach, or who's spiritually wandering. Maybe it's a medical or financial or spiritual breakthrough you need, or just a long-standing need of some other kind in your life. Some days it looks as if the prayer, the cry, the dream of your heart will never happen. And you feel like asking, as Mary and Martha must have asked when Jesus did not arrive in time to heal their dying brother Lazarus, "Where are You, Lord?" He would answer quietly, invisibly, "I'm preparing the answer." By the way, Mary and Martha got more than they could have ever dreamed; not a healing - they got a resurrection!

So, don't give up now, don't panic, don't push too hard or keep digging up the seed. Slowly but surely, the processes of God will blossom and you will reap what you have sown. Just remain faithful in the part that He's asked you to play. Just because you can't see God working doesn't mean He isn't working. Just think of all those spectacular spring blossoms. They were a long time in coming, but they came. And your spring will, too.

Four years ago, President Bush described the "axis of evil," nations that,
through their actions within and beyond their borders, "threaten the peace
of the world."

While two of the axis members—Iraq and Iran—are seldom, if ever, out of the
news, the third member, North Korea, gets only a fraction of the coverage.
This despite the fact that North Korea already has nuclear weapons and its
leaders have already killed far more people than even Saddam Hussein.

It seems that the only way North Korea is going to get the attention it
warrants is if Christians force the issue.

North Korea is often called the "Hermit Kingdom" because of its isolation
from the rest of the world. This nickname, which conjures up images of monks
in serene repose, ought to give way to one that more accurately captures the
essence of Kim Jong-Il: charnel house. The land of morning calm has become
the repository for the bones of Kim's victims.

Since Kim Jong-Il succeeded his father in 1994, more than two million North
Korean men, women, and children have died from starvation. Another 400,000
have perished in political prison camps, and I've seen reports from those
camps. It's horrifying.

Fleeing Kim's nightmare is hardly better. Those seeking to escape through
China are "victimized by traffickers, hunted down by police, and forcibly
repatriated." China will not allow humanitarian organizations or the UN to
feed and shelter North Korean refugees. To complete this hellish scenario,
"children whose parents have died or been separated from them wander the
streets in search of food and protection."

If this reminds you of places like the Cambodian "Killing Fields," you're
right. And, just as with Cambodia, the world has turned a collective blind
eye. If Kim hadn't developed nuclear weapons, nobody would have cared what
happened in North Korea.

No one, that is, except the people of conscience like Christians. Groups
like the North Korea Freedom Coalition work to keep the suffering of North
Koreans from being another case of "out of sight and out of mind."

The first North Korea Freedom Day rally in 2004 led to the North Korea Human
Rights Act, which we helped pass in the Congress. The act commits the United
States to "defend human rights and bring humanitarian aid to those suffering
in North Korea." Yet, to date, "not a single North Korean refugee has been
helped by the Act's application," a result that Representative Christopher
Smith (R-N.J.) calls "shameful."

Well, it's time to make ourselves heard again because our Christian brothers
are in prison in North Korea and being brutalized and murdered in those
camps. April 22-30 has been designated North Korea Freedom Week. The
scheduled activities include congressional hearings, the North Korea
Genocide Exhibit, and an all-night prayer vigil at the Chinese Embassy.
These efforts will culminate at the North Korea Freedom Day rally on April
28 at the U.S. Capitol.

We need your help if we're going to have any effect. For the Human Rights
Act to be more than a piece of paper, our elected officials need to hear
from their constituents. You can call us here at BreakPoint (1-877-322-5527)
to get their addresses and phone numbers. And also visit our website for
more information.

Our elected officials need to know that somebody is paying attention, and
that is our job as Christians.

A Very Present Help
Betsy Childs

In my old, yellowed copy of C. S. Lewis's Letters to an American
Lady, I have one sentence underlined that I return to again and again.
Lewis tells his correspondent, who tends to be anxious, "Remember one is
given strength to bear what happens to one, but not the 100 and 1
different things that might happen."

I need this reminder often, because I have a proclivity to worry early and
avoid the rush. You would be much less likely to find me worrying about
something I may face tomorrow than the calamities that may fall on me
twenty years from now. The perils of the future are vivid in my
imagination. But because they exist only in the realm of imagination, the
only comfort available to me is just as imaginary.

Have you ever looked at someone else's misfortune and thought, "I couldn't
handle that"? If so, you were exactly right. God has not given us the
grace to handle what He has not yet asked us to bear. The grace promised
to us in Scripture is available only in the present, and only when it is
needed. After reminding us that Christ can sympathize with our
weaknesses, the writer of Hebrews invites, "Let us then approach the
throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find
grace to help us in our time of need" (Hebrews 4:16). A literal (albeit
awkward) rendering of this verse from the Greek promises the Christian
"grace for a well-timed help."

What does a well-timed help look like? Does it look like Superman
sweeping out of the sky to rescue the endangered one from peril?
Ordinarily not. If anyone deserved to be removed from suffering it was
Jesus, but God in his purposes chose for Jesus to endure through suffering
rather than avoid it. More often than not, He chooses to help us endure
rather than removing the trial.

I find it fascinating that the same Greek word translated as "help" in
Hebrews 4:16 is translated as "ropes" in Acts 27:17. In this scene, Paul
travels on a ship that gets caught in a violent storm. The wind and waves
are so fierce that the sailors fear the ship will split apart. They pass
ropes ("helps") under and around the creaking vessel in order to hold it
together like a net. Sometimes, the well-timed help that God provides
doesn't calm the waves, but it holds us together until the storm dies

The psalmist describes God as "a very present help in trouble" (Psalm
46:1). He will not give us the help before we need it, and He may not
remove us out of trouble, but He will be there with us to hold us
together. When the troubles do come, we can approach his throne with
confidence, fully expecting to receive the grace of his well-timed help.

This is a list of the ways that UNC professors in
different departments grade their final exams:

Dept Of Statistics:
All grades are plotted along the normal bell curve.

Dept Of Psychology:
Students are asked to blot ink in their exam books,
close them and turn them in. The professor opens the
books and assigns the first grade that comes to mind.

Dept Of History:
All students get the same grade they got last year.

Dept Of Religion:
Grade is determined from Heaven.

Dept Of Philosophy:
What is a grade?

English Dept.:
Your final exam will be scored by totalling the weight
of all the books you read this semester:
40+ pounds - A
30 pounds - B
20 pounds - C
10 pounds - D
<10 pounds - F

Law School:
Students are asked to defend their
position of why they should receive an A.

Dept Of Mathematics:
Grades are variable.

Dept. Of Physics:
Grades are relative. but...
All theoretical physics is really mathematics. See Above.

Dept. Of Chemistry:
All theoretical chemistry is really physics. See Above.

Dept. Of Biology:
All theoretical biology is really chemistry. See Above.

Dept. Of Logic:
If and only if the student is present for the final
and the student has accumulated a passing grade
then the student will receive an A
else the student will not receive an A.

Dept. Of Marxist Studies:
The history of all hitherto existing society is the history
of class struggles. Therefore, everyone will now get the
same grade!

Dept. Of Economics:
All of your grades, as a collection, will reach the level where
your marginal product (MP) of labour for each individual
grade is equal.

Dept. Of Operations & Logistics Management:
Grades will be posted *at* 12:00 Noon.
NOT 11:59 -- NOT 12:01

Dept. Of Computer Science:
Random number generator determines grade, but...
YOUR grade is an object in a class of its own.

Music Department:
Each student must figure out his grade by listening to the
instructor play the corresponding note (+ and - would be
sharp and flat respectively).

A UNC grad pulls over at the gas station, gets out of her car, opens the
hood, and checks the engine oil. After a few seconds of intelligent
thinking, she takes the dipstick in her hand and walks up to the attendant.

"Excuse me sir, but can I buy a longer dipstick?" "May I ask why you
need a longer one ma'am?" "Because this one isn't long enough to reach the oil!"


(Thanks Bill) (Gen. 39:3 & 2 Sam. 23:1 & 5)


A man fell into a pit and couldn't get himself out.

~ A subjective person came along and said, "I feel for you down there."

~ An objective person walked by and said, "It's logical that someone
would fall down there."

~ A Pharisee said, "Only bad people fall into pits."

~ A mathematician calculated how deep the pit was.

~ A news reporter wanted the exclusive story on the pit.

~ An IRS agent asked if he was paying taxes on the pit.

~ A self-pitying person said, "You haven't seen anything until you've
seen my pit."

~ A fire-and-brimstone preacher said, "You deserve your pit."

~ A Christian Scientist observed, "The pit is just in your mind."

~ A psychologist noted, "Your mother and father are to blame for your
being in that pit."

~ A self-esteem therapist said, "Believe in yourself and you can get out
of that pit."

~ An optimist said, "Things could be worse."

~ A pessimist claimed, "Things will get worse."

Jesus, seeing the man, took him by the hand and lifted him out of the pit.


During the seventeenth century the Marquis of Worchester found
himself imprisoned in the Tower of London. Being a clever
gentleman, he built a curious contraption and asked for an
audience with the king.

In the king's presence he revealed his invention: a self-turning
wheel. His majesty was so impressed he released his prisoner.
Little did he suspect at the time that the marquis had simply
simulated a perpetual motion machine.

For at least 1,500 years various individuals have tried to design
and build the world's first unpowered device that never stops
moving. During the golden age of perpetual motion in England,
from about 1850 to the turn of the century, nearly 600 patents
for such devices were granted. The contraptions certainly look
impressive on paper, but when built they never work!

Contemporary perpetual motionists refuse to concede that it is
impossible to break the laws of thermodynamics. Their "perpetual
commotion" only succeeds in redesigning machines that were proven
failures generations ago.

Similarly, men and women today ignore the clear statements of
Scripture in their attempts to achieve the impossible. Futilely
they seek to obtain eternal life and favor with God by their good
deeds. Salvation, however, is not granted on the merits of our
attainment, but on Christ's perfect atonement for our sins by His
death on the cross. Only by committing our lives to Him can we
receive the assurance of sins forgiven and life eternal.

Salvation by works is a type of perpetual commotion. It will
never work. In Romans 3:23 we read, "All have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God." No matter how hard we try, we can't
measure up to the perfect standard God requires before anyone can
enter His presence. Salvation can never be achieved on the basis
of what we do, but only on the basis of God's infinite mercy.

A mother once approached Napoleon seeking a pardon for her son.
The emperor replied that the young man had committed a certain
offense twice, and justice demanded death.

"But I don't ask for justice," the mother explained. "I plead for mercy."

"But your son does not deserve mercy," Napoleon replied.

"Sir," the woman cried, "it would not be mercy if he deserved it,
and mercy is all I ask for."

"Well, then," the emperor said, "I will have mercy." And he
spared the woman's son.

Christians are not those who earn God's favor by their intrinsic
goodness; they are merely recipients of God's mercy. God saves
us, we read in Titus 3:5, not because of the righteous things we
have done, but because of His mercy. Thankfully, we need ask but
once in order to receive His gift of salvation freely.

Just as salvation is not attained by what we do, so it is not
maintained by our good works as God's servants. Our salvation
rests on the sure promises of God. Christ Himself has gone on
record as saying, "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word
and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be
condemned; he has crossed over from death to life" (John 5:24).

All the perpetual commotion in the world cannot save an
individual no matter how ingenious his or her efforts may appear.
And all the uproar in hell cannot change the certainty of God's
salvation once we receive it. (Luis Palau)


Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one
another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. --1 John 4


I tell you, women drivers are a hazard to traffic. Driving to work this
morning on the parkway, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a
Mustang doing 65 miles per hour with her face up next to her rear view mirror
putting on her eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway
over in my lane. It scared me so bad I dropped my electric shaver in my
coffee, and it spilled all over my cell phone!

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
