Eternity is rushing towards us.
You and everyone else must be ready.

Watching While Walking

Oct 28, 2021


Hopefully, one thing we have learned through the last year and a half is that one size does not fit all. But what you will find, if you study the things going on across the world, is that governments and others are trying to fit everyone into the same box. Everyone must do this in order for that to happen.

Watch this short video. The Amish took a very different approach to the same issues all of us have been dealing with as of late and had some surprising results:



As we head toward winter, we can expect more governmental control over people to play out. Whether the reason is a new variant, masking, vaccines, or something else, once they take control, they will never want to relinquish it.

Have you made plans for how you are going to respond during the next wave of whatever shows up? The Amish knew the importance of keeping their churches open last year. What will you and your congregation do when they try to close your church again?

Examining and testing ourselves is part of the Christian faith.

1 Corinthians 11:31

For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

2 Corinthians 13:5a

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.

We need to take “examining ourselves” into the marketplace as well. Christians are followers in one sense and leaders in many other senses. We are different. We are not like everyone else. We have heaven in mind as our feet traverse the terrain around us. Stand out. Be different. Be biblical. Be a soul winner. Finish well.

Until the Nets are Full,


P.S. My mom’s favorite of all of my books was Paradise. She liked them all, but she just loved that one. It was the first novel I wrote. She read it over and over.


A lot of times, I ask people, “Do you like to read?” Most people still answer in the affirmative. I then ask, “Do you like fiction or non-fiction?” If they say “fiction,” Paradise is the book I give them. I’m just truly amazed by the feedback we have received from this book, both by the lost and the saved.



So, in honor of my mom, let’s have some fun. Single books of Paradise will be $5 each for the next week. Bundles will be a suggested donation of $90, and a Case will be a suggested donation of $220. It might be a good book to plant in some people’s lives with all that is going on in the world.
