The Promise of Sealing

Like many of you, I’ve spent time in scripture memorization plans, and I felt a lot safer when I committed Ephesians 1:13-14 to memory.

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard  the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal,  the promised

The Promise of Safety

Read the daily paper. Listen to the news. Follow local politics. Watch the latest State of the Union speech. Honestly, how safe do you feel?

Analyze this:

“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, But whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” ~Proverbs 29:25 If it’s true that everyone who trusts in

The Promise of Holy Boldness

Have you ever witnessed the glorious transformation of a timid, gentle, soul into a bold proclaimer of truth?

I have. Years ago, a subcommittee in the Oregon State House of Representatives was considering the merits of crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs). A pro-abortion group had called into question the work of CPCs and was attempting to

A Day in the Life of Jerry Thacker

About 10 years ago, I took a trek across the country and visited what were then called crisis pregnancy centers in various locations.  I talked with board members, directors, volunteers and even clients. My goal was to ask them what could help them as they went about fulfilling their mission of helping women in

The Promise of Pure Joy

Does the world seem a joyless place–the news all bad? Does it seem that even when good news is reported, it’s recounted with a sense of incredulity and, perhaps, skepticism?

Well, guess what . . . the world IS a joyless place, full of tribulation and sorrow. Abiding joy is found only in a

The Promise of Grace

When I encountered Jesus in a life-changing way, I was directed to a Bible verse that clarified my new found position in the Kingdom of God.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” ~Ephesians 2:8

The Promise of Mercy

If you’re like most people, you want to be treated kindly, mercifully. We say, “Gimme a break,” or “Try a little tenderness,” and we mean it!

Too often, we forget that it cuts both ways. Consider the following verses: “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”  ~Matthew 5:7 “A man who has
