>On this Memorial Day weekend…we certainly need to make time to remember our veterans…living and dead…as well as those serving today.

We who claim to be redeemed, adopted, and forgiven need…as in every day…to remember the One who gave His life as a ransom for many…and to guard ourselves against apathy or, worse, getting so “deep in the things of God” that we forget that which is “of first importance” – the Gospel (1 Corin 15)

Read, slowly, the following:

“If you are not aware of the fact that this is the greatest good news that has ever come into the world, or has ever been received by man, it may be due to the fact that you have an inadequate sense of sin, and an inadequate realization of your own sinfulness.”
Dr. David Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Vol. 1 of Romans, 58

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
