Enjoying The Journey

Recording Day!

Several folks have asked me recently how we record the daily Enjoying The Journey episodes. Technology has made life so much simpler in some ways! I am able to record our broadcast on the road or at home using the tools that are now available. We have a wonderful group of people who work as a team to produce each program and provide them to radio stations and podcast platforms. I am truly grateful for those who have had a burden to help get God’s Word to others. Tomorrow we will conclude our current series on the life of Samson. This has been the most enjoyable study for me personally and many people have communicated with us about how God…

A Brand New Series Of Bible Messages Now Available

When I was a student in college, Dr. Frank Sells once challenged us to choose a “life book” – a book of the Bible to immerse ourselves in and to hide in our hearts. That book became the New Testament letter of Philippians for me. It has for many years served as both an anchor to keep me from drifting and a prod to move me forward.  Over time the truth of “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4) became the ministry emphasis of “Enjoying The Journey.” We all preach and teach out of the overflow of what God is teaching us. I love sharing with others the reality of joy that is found in…

Life’s Delays

Delayed. One of the most dreaded words in air travel. It glares in yellow letters from the airport monitors. The very word sounds like what it represents – a long indefinite period.  Few updates bring more downcast looks. Frustration rises. Immediately the questions begin to come…Why? How long? Is the new time accurate or just hopeful? What can we do differently? Will I make my connection or appointment? Whose fault is this anyway? Where can I get another cup of coffee while I worry? Pace if you want to. Fret if you will. Look for someone to blame. Join the ranks of those who are fussing about the inconvenience. But in the end we all just have to sit down…

Starting Today!

One of the most exciting ways to study Scripture is to get acquainted with the great characters of the Bible. When you begin to identify with the men and women that the Holy Spirit emphasizes you find that there really is “no new thing under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9) and that “his truth endureth to all generations” (Psalm 100:5). The basic nature and needs of man do not change and neither does the character and care of God! There are a number of people who I have enjoyed reading after when it comes to the study of Bible characters. Alexander Whyte and George Matheson are authors from previous generations who bring out rich nuggets of truth. Of course, Herbert Lockyer…

Starting Today!

Over the last few weeks I have been meeting people everywhere who are “Enjoying The Journey” with us through the Word of God. If you have been listening, thank you! If you have not yet joined us, today would be a good day! Starting today we are studying specific Scriptures that will help us know how to witness more effectively for Christ. This new series, Go With The Gospel, is now available on all of the podcast platforms and on our own website. My burden is to enlist and equip as many Christians as possible to share Christ with others. I hope you will be one of those people. This particular series also has printed material available if you would…

The Need Of Our Nation

It is easy to fuss at the darkness around us and fail to do the very things that bring true light into our dark world. Political conservatism and true Christianity are not the same thing. As followers of Christ our hope is in God and our help comes only from Him. This week we celebrate the birthday of our beloved America. I love my country and long to see a spiritual revival in our land. It is the hope of our nation and the need of every generation. Would you join me in making this week a week of prayer? Every celebration should be cause for us to remember the goodness of God and look to Him again. As you…

Living On The Edge

“Living on the edge” is considered to be adventurous or dangerous, depending on your perspective. The person on the edge is close to peril. In fact, we are all living there! Every person alive is at this moment living on the edge of eternity. At any moment we may be face to face with a holy God. While such a prospect is a thrilling one for those who love Christ, it is a fearful thought for those who are not right with Him. Either way, the truth of our frailty and the nearness of eternity should serve as a motivator for us all. When I ask people to tell me their favorite book of the Bible the one I hear…

Don’t Just Serve The Lord!

When the Queen of Sheba came to visit King Solomon it was not just his riches and wisdom that she observed with amazement. It was his servants. She noted, “Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom” (1 Kings 10:8). The joyful servants were a testimony to the king. When the world looks at the servants of God they should see the happiest people on earth. And this joy is not just for others to witness; it is for God to see. He rejoices when our greatest joy is serving Him. The God who knows everything is concerned not only with what we do but with why we do…

The Next Step On Our Journey

A dear man asked me the other day where we were going next in our “Enjoying the Journey” Bible study. It is a pleasure to walk through Scripture together and to know that many of you are making that journey with us! Here is a brief overview of our next steps… Today’s episode is very special for a couple of reasons. On one hand, it is a brief footnote to our 19 week study in the gospel according to Mark. In addition to that I share some exciting news about our journey to the Holy Land in 2020. We would love to have you join us as we study the Bible in the land of the Bible! Be sure to…
