The firstfruits were devoted to the Lord in the Bible; God was to get the first and best from us.  What are the firstfruits in our life and have we devoted that to God with every part of our life?

    “Only 359 Days Left to Go”
    Series: New Year
    Taking the city of Jericho was the first thing that the nation of Israel had to face when they entered the Promised Land - something that looked like an overwhelming task to them.  What is our "Jericho" that we have to face for 2018?  God is still the same God who conquered Jericho and will conquer our "Jericho" as well.

NOT What We Can Do

A number of years ago John Henry Jowett told about a small village where an elderly woman died.  She died penniless, uneducated, and unsophisticated, but during her lifetime her selfless service had made a tremendous impact for Christ.  On her tombstone they chiseled the words, “She did what she couldn’t.”  That could be the epitaph for every follower of Christ who will allow Christ to live through us:  HE can do through us what we can never do ourselves.  This, of course, reminds me of the words of the apostle Paul who wrote, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).  So, what does that mean to you?  What does that mean to me?  What does that mean in 2017 where we live?

Choice

There was a study done of identical twins awhile back and there was a pair of twin brothers whose lives were quite opposite. One of them was a happily married lawyer with a flourishing practice.  The other was a twice-divorced alcoholic who had gone from job to job all of his life.  The questionnaire they filled out asked, among other things, “What made you the way you are?”  The researchers were amazed that these two men had written identical answers to that question:  “My father’s death when I was ten years old.”

Is Anyone Guilty?

As I read the headlines this morning a thought kept coming back to me and it is this:  “Is anyone really guilty?”  I mean, if you read the stories it seems to me that no one is guilty . . . except of course all of the people who are declaring that the people they’re talking about are guilty.  I mean, really?  I read about a man in Ohio who was executed this morning for murdering two people back in 1992.  He went into both of their apartments on two separate occasions to rob them, it seems to pay for his drug habit.  But, according to this man, part of the blame lies on the victims.  He never really explained what was their fault or how they were to blame.  According to the court transcripts when he broke into the apartment of the woman that he murdered, he turned the television volume up so that no one could hear her pleading for her life.  He never denied that he killed either of them, but somehow maintained to the end that they were partially at fault.  Interesting too, after he was injected with the drugs that would eventually take his life, one of the last things he said was, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  And that’s just one story.
