  • Stay cool by fixing salads, grilling/cooking outdoors

    Hello once again, my friends. As I write this article there is only one thing I can say. It’s hot! It’s summer time, of course, so I guess it should be, but it always surprises me at how quickly I am ready for the dog days of summer to be over even when they are just first starting.

    That leads me right in to this month’s cooking thoughts. When it’s boiling hot outside, it’s time to pull out all the stops to make food preparation easier.

  • God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9)

    A. W. Tozer said, “One compromise here. Another there. And soon the so-called Christian, and the man in the world, look the same.”

    When someone is truly born again, their faith in the Lord changes them. Their actions and behaviors change, letting the world know in whom they have believed. And while their works are not the cause or reason for salvation, they are the evidence or proof of salvation. The word faith is used here as a verb, and it is always demonstrated by action.
