    As I pick up and peruse The Paper every day, I am struck that it is so much about us. I love reading local articles. I love seeing local or visiting smiling faces. I love smaller stories that don’t matter to anybody but us. I feel like I belong to The Paper and that it belongs to us. That’s a neat feeling isn’t it?

    As promised last week, the Gospel is this: God created us for a purpose, on purpose; and He loves us more than we can fathom.

    I’ve grown up knowing what racing is. I have watched a few NASCAR and Formula 1 races on TV growing up, but never really experienced it to know what all goes into it, what makes it so exciting and challenging, etc. Until I went on a field trip with my son to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to watch the practice laps of the Indy 500. It was…

    I get so frustrated when I can’t produce the spiritual fruits God wants from me. Peace, joy, gentleness, etc.

    Do you ever feel like that?

    As tornado sirens filled the late evening air, hail stones barraged the residents of New Richmond last Sunday evening.  At the break of new day, the remarkable thing was the relatively small amount of damage to the area and the homes in the wake of the storm.  Dented vehicles, battered siding, and a few roofs beaten up.

    Hold a seed in your hand.  Look at it.  That seed will have to undergo internal tension and split apart in order to grow.  Even the smallest surviving sprout will endure the heat of day, the cold of night, trampling paws, voracious pests, battering thunderstorms in season, and minimal water in others.  Out of those struggles however will come something that can withstand incredible external forces and continue to mature in strength and beauty.

    In a small town near where I live, there is single blinking red traffic light. There are many intersections in the town, but this light marks the only true crossroads in the community. Depending on what you do at this stop light, you can experience some very different outcomes.

    If you know Jesus as savior, you are loved with a Holy love. You are covered by a Holy grace. You are protected by a Holy sovereignty. You are provided for by a Holy sustenance. Your life is bathed in a torrent of Holy experience.

    A few years ago, my wife and I saw a beautiful yellow flower growing up through the pavement of a public parking lot next to a cigarette butt and a few weeds. We took a picture of the flower and later found out that it was a pansy. I think it interesting that “pansy” is the name we give to people that we deem as weak or cowardly. The pansy is a hardy flower that thrives in situations many other flowers can’t. The reason this particular pansy was surviving in the parking lot was because it absorbed the heat from the direct sunlight, with no shade, and had to fight to conserve its water.

    I heard a wonderful testimony a while back about how God had redeemed a life from such deep brokenness, hatred, and criminal activity.  In comparison, I’m almost embarrassed by the  ‘blandness’ of my 12 year old conversion.

    Lightning struck the Liberty Chapel bell tower steeple early Wednesday evening just Northwest of Crawfordsville. No one was hurt. Nothing significant was lost. Thanks to the quick observation and reporting by the nearby Webster family, the Crawfordsville Fire department was able to respond extremely fast. Considering it was a fire contained within the actual walls, the fire department ensured minimal damage occurred.

    In 2 Corinthians 10:5, the Apostle Paul instructs us to, “… take every thought captive to obey Christ.”  Have you thought about how practical and useful that is for you today?  One of Lucifer’s many names in Scripture is “The Father of Lies.”  Jesus told His critics (those who rejected Christ) that the native language of their father (the Devil) is lies.

    I recently read an obituary about a man who had spent a lifetime in the service of the Lord’s ministry.  He had no extraordinary accomplishments other than the usual schooling, family and career, but he was a man whose life was full of blessing and success.

    Maybe I should explain that question.
    The thing about Easter is that it’s really a combination of a memorial holiday for the single greatest event in human history - and a celebration of the promise which that event secured for all of us who believe in it.  Got it?  A memorial of an event - and a celebration of a promise!
