    The following post is a summary of my sermon yesterday. Some of you may have read it on my regular Facebook page. Read Philippians 2:5-8, quoted in the points below, which presents the true meaning of Christmas: [1] Jesus Christ came to the earth as God. Paul said that He “existed in the form of…

  • You Never Can Tell

    Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919) You never can tell when you send a word,Like an arrow shot from a bowBy an archer blind, be it cruel or kind,Just where it may chance to go.It may pierce the breast of your dearest friend.Tipped with its poison or balm,To a stranger’s heart in life’s great mart,It…

    The ICF has completed the book of Acts and is now going through the letter to the church at Philippi. Our text for this Sunday is Philippians 1:27-2:5. The following is taken from my book, “From West Texas to the French West Indies and Back Again,” pages 94-95. In Philippians 2:1-5, Paul gave clear instructions…

    I have not posted recent lessons from the book of Acts, but because the majority of the ICF were camping on October 8, I am posting my lesson that closed out our study of Acts (covering 28:11-31). Background: Paul was on his way as a prisoner to Rome when the ship was wrecked. The ship…

    (I have not posted for a couple of weeks as I was waiting for our Sunday lessons to catch up. We have now arrived at Acts 22). We have seen Paul as a person on mission, and now we have the privilege of hearing him recount his testimony. He was falsely accused and arrested, and…

  • Daily Bible Reading – July 12, 2023

    (I did not post on ICF Facebook last week. The theme as presented below covers all of Acts 21). When I last preached, I suggested that the people of the Way are a people on mission. Paul is perhaps our greatest example of a person on mission. He and his companions “set sail” from Miletus…

    (Acts 20) We see a pattern in the modus operandi of Paul’s ministry. He had concluded the first missionary journey, even after being stoned and left for dead at Lystra, by returning to the cities where he had ministered, “strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith” (Ac. 14:22). At…

    This Sunday we will cover Acts 19:23-41. We have seen earlier in chapter 19 how God was working miraculously in Ephesus. “(Paul) had discussions daily in the school of Tyrannus. This took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks. God was…

    This Sunday we will cover Acts 19:1-22. When Jesus was preparing His disciples for His death and resurrection and return to heaven, He made the statement: “You know the way where I am going.” Thomas quickly refuted that, saying, “Lord we don’t know where You are going; how can we know the way?” And Jesus…
