William Willis

Swimming in the mortar-riddled shallows of the East China Sea. Jumping off bridges into the barracuda-infested waters of the Florida Straits. Trudging through a fresh snowfall in the pristine silence of a New England forest. Hunting the elusive pheasant in the frigid, windswept plains of Illinois. Trying to stay out of trouble while experiencing great adventures with my brother while Mom was b... read more

Message in a Word: Inspired Succinct Sermons Uniquely Expressed

Margaret A. Blincoe

Message in a Word MEANS EXPLORING SPECIFIC SUBJECT AND GETTING ENLIGHTMENT IN NUTSHELL AS WRITTEN ORACLE REVEALED DEITY. Words can heal or hurt, save or destroy. Words are so important that the Bible describes Jesus as The Word. Often we have tunnel vision and focus on what we think a word means, when God has so much more for us to see and understand.

Acrostics are word puzzles in which the word itself is broken down and used to form other descriptive words around an idea.

God, I've Got A Problem

Ben Ferguson

“God has promised us a safe landing but not a smooth journey.” I don’t know who uttered those words, but they express a central truth of the Christian life—Christians aren’t immune from the problems associated with being human. Even a casual reading of the Bible reveals a lot of promises God has made, but nowhere does He promise to insulate us against the daily problems humans face or place us... read more
