Belief in the Son is Eternal Life


By Benjamin H. Liles

          The people asked Jesus, “What are the things God wants us to do?” Jesus answered, “The work God wants you to do is this: Believe the One he sent" (John 6:28-29, Expanded).

A Day at the Beach Book Review


By Benjamin H. Liles

A Day at the Beach delivers on being a peaceful, easy, kind of feeling book. Todd and Jedd Hafer offer a joy-filled perspective on life and faith. From what I can tell about what the Publisher, Tyndale, says about the book and the brothers, “[They] don’t have the answers to all of life’s troubles; [they] help you see that the God who built the universe also wants to help you build a great life.”

Be a God-Pleaser


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I know I have given the gospel of Christ for almost a year now, but I want to do something a little different. No, I'm not deviating from what I consider to be the standard.

          Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. ~ Romans 15:2, New King James

He Who is Like Elijah


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Then it happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, “Is that you, O troubler of Israel?”
          And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of the Lord and have followed the Baals. Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table. ~ 1 Kings 18:17-19, New King James

Weekends Off...


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I tend to take the weekends off to recharge. From Friday nights to Sunday before dusk I don't normally blog. The reason for this isn't just to unwind, but so I can be and remain close to the Lord. There's a Bible story where Mary is sat at Jesus' feet. He's giving a word. Martha is in the kitchen doing what she does best (see Luke 10:38-42). It's what we're comfortable with.
