Hi there and welcome to my radio show blog. I'm glad you are here and hope you will find something useful.

I'm a 72 year old radio broadcaster who found great peace in his old age in the forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers to sinners. I enjoy reading my Bible doing radio podcasts about things I have read. The goal of each podcast is to encourage us all to have faith in Jesus Christ, God's Son, and to follow Him daily.
I encourage you to place your faith in Jesus Christ. He took the punishment for all our sins and only He can make us acceptable before God. Then follow Him. His words will change your life.

How to live this day

First Thessalonians 5:16-19

Rejoice evermore.

Pray without ceasing.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Quench not the Spirit.


Thank God for this timely Word! What can we rejoice over? Well, for openers those of us who have the faith of Christ are saved and will enjoy eternity in the presence of our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We can rejoice because He is faithful and will get us through life's many trials and battles. And for this we can give thanks! Let us spend more time giving thanks to God than on complaining about people and things. God rules! And quench not the Spirit! The Spirit will give you wisdom and guidance in doing that. Call out to the Holy Spirit and ask for a fresh new drenching of His power! 

Thank God He Loves Sinners!

1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Thank God He loves sinners like us! Otherwise we would be in deep trouble.

John 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Let us believe every word Jesus says about Himself and our Heavenly Father. Let us trust Him to save us from our sins and count His sacrifice the payment made for our sins. Let us ever thank Him for this!

John 3:16,17
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

And remember...

John 3:36
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Luke 5:32
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.


Remember, Jesus loves you and He is just a prayer away.

Christ, the example of ministers

Christ, the example of ministers
(Jonathan Edwards)

It is not only our great duty, but will be our greatest honor, to imitate Christ, and do the work that He has done--and so act as co-workers with Him.

The ministers of Christ should be persons of the same spirit that their Lord was of--the same spirit of humility and lowliness of heart; for the servant is not greater than his Lord.

They should be of the same spirit of heavenly-mindedness, and contempt of the glory, wealth, and pleasures of this world.

They should be of the same spirit of devotion and fervent love to God.
They should follow the example of His prayerfulness; of whom we read from time to time of His retiring from the world, away from the noise and applause of the multitudes, into mountains and solitary places, for secret prayer, and holy converse with His Father.

Ministers should be persons . . .
  of the same quiet, lamb-like spirit that Christ was of;
  of the same spirit of submission to God's will, and patience under afflictions, and meekness towards men;
  of the same calmness and composure of spirit under reproaches and sufferings from the malignity of evil men;
  of the same spirit of forgiveness of injuries;
  of the same spirit of charity, of fervent love and extensive benevolence;
  of the same disposition to pity the miserable, and to weep with those who weep;
  of the same spirit of . . .
    condescension to the poor and lowly,
    tenderness and gentleness toward the weak,
    and great and sincere love to enemies.

They should also be of the same spirit of zeal, diligence, and self-denial for the glory of God, and advancement for his kingdom, and for the good of mankind; for which things sake Christ went though the greatest labors, and endured the most extreme sufferings.

And in order to our imitating Christ in the work of the ministry, in any tolerable degree--we should not have our hearts weighed down, and time filled up with worldly affections, cares, and pursuits.

The duties of a minister that have been recommended, are absolutely inconsistent with a mind much taken up with worldly profit, glory, amusements and entertainments.
