Jesus is coming soon…but does it matter?

Repeatedly the Bible tells us that Jesus is coming back. And He is coming soon. But what does this mean for followers of Jesus Christ today? Should we sit back and say that everything is in the hands of God? Can we live as we like, promising ourselves that some day in the future we will clean up our lives? On the contrary, if we really believe that Jesus is coming at any moment, that should compel us to reassess our priorities. An athlete preparing for the big game is disciplined and focused. The future event determines his present...

Will We Know Each Other in Heaven?

Will we know one another in heaven? Of course! In heaven, we will have new, changed, glorified, spiritual bodies. But our glorified bodies will have a continuing identity with our present bodies. Scripture teaches the redemption of the body, not the redemption from the body. And we will be like Christ “who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body,” (Philippians 3:21). Our new bodies will not be subject to decay, disease or death. We will not only see and recognize one another, we will know one another and commune with one another much better than...

Wisdom

I was reading John Flavel (1628-1691) and came across the quote: “How many would have been wise, if they had not thought themselves wise already?” I think the quote was from Seneca who also said: “No man was ever wise by chance.” The wise person is always learning.

The fool never listens to instruction, whereas the wise person listens to and follows instruction.  The inevitable characteristic of an authentic follower of Jesus is a humble, teachable attitude. Our Savior still...

Remembering Dr. Ross Rhoads: A Pastors’ Pastor

Dr. Ross Rhoads, former Senior Pastor of Calvary Church, passed into the presence of the Lord on May 24, 2017.  The memorial service will be on Saturday, June 3 at 3PM at Calvary.  Please pray for Carol and the Rhoads family. Candidating in the huge Sanctuary of Calvary Church in December 2005 was a daunting experience for me! But I will never forget the warm welcome by Ross who served as Senior Pastor at Calvary from 1973-1995. He shook me warmly by the hand, and with his penetrating eyes looked directly into mine! He then thanked me for preaching the...

Notes from Kazakhstan: Conclusion to an Amazing Journey

May 6 & 7, 2017 On Saturday, Fred and I travelled to visit Denis and Olga and their five sons. They are supported by Calvary. We received a warm welcome, and it was a joy to resume fellowship with them. They stay about 3.5 hours drive from Almaty which was our base of operations. Calvary had helped them restore their home, and they proudly showed us the improvements. How they praised God! We also had a church service in their House of Prayer, and I had the privilege of preaching.  About 30 people were present even though it was...
