I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  -John 15:5 Christianity without Christ is a strange thing.  The church devoid of the gospel—devoid of Christ—is a...

Beginning Wednesday, February 14, I will embark on another forty-day journey of seeking Christ and setting aside, voluntarily, some activities that I will use as a reminder to myself that I am abiding in Christ.  Literally millions of Christians (and many non-believers who will do this out...

I sat down to write this Jym Shorts on my 52nd birthday. I don’t feel 52, but alas, what am I to do about it? Actually, birthdays don’t bother me in the least. Age comes naturally to me. As I reflect back over the years of my life, I find myself grateful that 38 of them have been as...
