Jesus answered, “Surely you have read in the Scriptures: When God made the world, ‘he made them male and female.’ And God said, ‘So a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one body.’ So there are not two, but one. God has joined the two together, so no one should separate them.”        ~Matthew 19:4-6 Marriage is one of God’s wonderful gifts to humankind! As the... + read more

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2 The word in the original language for “fix our eyes” in this passage means, to intentionally look away from one thing so as to be able to focus on another.  We physical therapists evaluate people’s movement patterns, to help workers perform tasks... + read more

Libby Little Engaged the Unengaged It was my great blessing to attend a conference at Park Street Church. The main speaker was Libby Little. She and her husband raised their family in Afghanistan from just before the Soviet invasion to the 2010 martyrdom of her husband. They went to Afghanistan to share Christ's love with the unengaged. Dr. Thomas Little spent much of his time helping Afghans with serious vision issues. His clinic is still operational. It was truly astounding to hear how... + read more

Recently I (Doug) was meditating on Romans 15:13 in the Amplified.  It says,  “May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing – through the experience of your faith – that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”   I was ministered to with the fact that it is the power of God that allows us to “bubble over and abound” in hope.  Hope is the expectation that... + read more

This Family Postman finds both me and Patty sort of “crunched” by the deadline.  Patty is preparing for a road trip and I am in the midst of a significant business decision, a week filled with Board meetings, interviews, etc.!  However, in a lot of ways, this is the “normal” Christian life in southeastern Massachusetts in 2016.    Patty and I have taken great comfort from Acts 17:26 which says God has ordained the exact time and place you should... + read more

Your close friend is passing through an overwhelming trial. What do you write on the card? You’re standing in line at the wake. What are you going to say? In times like these, we can count on “the comfort of the scriptures,” Romans 15:4. God’s Word has divine power to touch the deepest chords of the human heart in ways that our mere human sentiments cannot begin to match. There are literally hundreds of verses that bring strong comfort. Here’s a small... + read more

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1 The word “perseverance” in this passage means to “abide under”, as in a donkey abiding under a heavy load. This implies the race God has called each of us to run is a long distance course, not a short distance sprint. It also implies... + read more

She championed the cause of mill girls in 19th century Ireland. Amy took this ministry with her to Japan, where she continued to focus on mill girls. Most of her 86 years were spent in India. Dohnavur Fellowship housed thousands of orphans. Even with limited mobility during the last two decades of her... + read more

The Lord God is on mission. He is at work to rescue people out of sin and darkness. That’s why He entered this world in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus identified his mission when he said he came “to seek and to save that which is lost.” (Luke 19:10). That’s the same reason the Lord sends his church into the world. He has invited us to join him in his mission. Christians need to make a wrenching paradigm shift in their thinking. Centuries of tradition have taught us... + read more

Last month, I began a series of articles based on the Biblical teaching that living the Christian life is analogous to running a race. The first teaching focused on accepting the race that God lays out for each of us, and not getting caught up in comparing our race to others, wishing we were running a different race. This month’s teaching focuses on the responsibility each of us has to be adequately prepared for our race. As I mentioned before, I am not a good runner, and I don’t... + read more
