Why “Eternity Changes Everything” Matters Today

Revelation 14:1-5 Those Who Follow

One of my favorite children’s books is Saint George and the Dragon. I like the one retold by Margaret Hodges and illustrated by Trina Hyman. I used to go to the library as a kid and look at all the pictures in this book. In fact, I loved the pictures so much I never actually read the words. So two weeks ago I went to the library, got the book, and read it.

The Cure

They found the cure quite by accident. The band of island settlers had just recently arrived at the tropical paradise. They brought with them lots of different people—a farmer and his wife, a banker, several school teachers, a general store manager, an officer of the law, and a mayor. They even brought with them a doctor, but when the found the cure they sent him away.

We use Bible study software, websites, and apps to help us spend time diving deep into Scripture.

Revelation 6:1-17 Christ Is On His Way

I've never been to war, but maybe you have or know someone who has. In the last one-hundred years, the US has experienced a lot of war. We went through WWI and WWII. Then we fought in the Korean War and Vietnam. Maybe some of you remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. More recently we’ve had roles in the Persian Gulf War. In the mid and late 90s there was the Bosnian War and Kosovo. Then everything changed for the United States on September 11th 2001.

Extra-Biblical Humility

My church raised me to love the Bible and all its stories, but didn’t talk much about tradition, or the historic creeds, confessions, and catechisms. I learned the Bible every week but I was missing out on what my spiritual grandparents had to offer me. It wasn’t till seminary that the significance of what came before me began to sink in. That’s when I discovered my need for what I like to call extra-Biblical humility.
