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

I'm a 73 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 and doing radio podcasts about things I have read. I also program 96.2 Follow Jesus Radio. 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. Look unto Him alone for life and salvation. 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.

Here is the latest from Follow Jesus Radio:

Faith without works is dead!

James 2:14-26 (WEB)  What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can faith save him?
And if a brother or sister is naked and in lack of daily food,
and one of you tells them, “Go in peace. Be warmed and filled;” yet you didn’t give them the things the body needs, what good is it?
Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead in itself.
Yes, a man will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
You believe that God is one. You do well. The demons also believe, and shudder.
But do you want to know, vain man, that faith apart from works is dead?
Wasn’t Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son on the altar?
You see that faith worked with his works, and by works faith was perfected.
So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God.
You see then that by works, a man is justified, and not only by faith.
In the same way, wasn’t Rahab the prostitute also justified by works, in that she received the messengers and sent them out another way?
For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.

God's everlasting love for you!

Romans 8:31-39 (WEB)  What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
He who didn’t spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how would he not also with him freely give us all things?
Who could bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who justifies.
Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Even as it is written, “For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from God’s love which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

A warning from Solomon's life

1 Kings 11:4-13 (NET)  When Solomon became old, his wives shifted his allegiance to other gods; he was not wholeheartedly devoted to the Lord his God, as his father David had been.
Solomon worshiped the Sidonian goddess Astarte and the detestable Ammonite god Milcom.
Solomon did evil in the Lord’s sight; he did not remain loyal to the Lord, like his father David had.
Furthermore, on the hill east of Jerusalem Solomon built a high place for the detestable Moabite god Chemosh and for the detestable Ammonite god Milcom.
He built high places for all his foreign wives so they could burn incense and make sacrifices to their gods.
The Lord was angry with Solomon because he had shifted his allegiance away from the Lord, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him on two occasions
and had warned him about this very thing, so that he would not follow other gods. But he did not obey the Lord’s command.
So the Lord said to Solomon, “Because you insist on doing these things and have not kept the covenantal rules I gave you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant.
However, for your father David’s sake I will not do this while you are alive. I will tear it away from your son’s hand instead.
But I will not tear away the entire kingdom; I will leave your son one tribe for my servant David’s sake and for the sake of my chosen city Jerusalem.”
