    A well-known picture of Jesus knocking at the door has special meaning. There is no door knob on the outside of the door. It must be opened from within. Jesus doesn't barge in. He doesn't use a wrecking ball to gain entrance. His posture is relaxed and implies that He is gently knocking, intently awaiting our decision to His invitation. The painting illustrates the scripture in Rev. 3:20 "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in, and...

    Those who grew up watching westerns are accustomed to the phrase, "circle the wagons." It meant that when the covered wagon pioneers were in danger of attack or severe storms, they would place their wagons in a circle, providing a wall of protection against the foe. The phrase is used commonly these days to describe the need to take protective caution in one form or another. In this volatile world in which we live, it encourages us to know the Lord promises to encircle our path. "You hem me in b...

    In 1963 Dr. Christian Barnard performed the first human-to-human heart transplant. The surgery was considered a success even though the patient only lived 18 days. When Jesus Christ comes into one's heart (the center of our spiritual and physical life) it results in eternal life, salvation, and transformation. In one of her books Christian fiction writer Janette Oke writes of a youth devotion that was given: "He (Troy) had several hearts to display to the group. A black one represented the...

The words, "What Hath God Wrought," taken from Numbers 23:23, comprised the inaugural message transmitted by the newly invented electric telegraph....

    Part 12 ...Continuing. Moss ducked his head beneath the doorway as Denny pulled him into the shack. It was a one-room shed, with warped wallboards and a dirt floor.

In the center of the table stood a tin tomato can full of wildflowers. "Sis!" Denny called. "I brought a friend." Denny's sister turned from the stove and Moss...
