Thanks for visiting our website! This month’s picture is from the August 2018 retreat of Colombian preachers in Santa Marta. I was honored to be asked to participate. [Click picture to enlarge.]

Colombian Preachers

Ministry and mission work is a team effort -- Jan and I have shared the work of ministry and missions for 49+ years! Countless people have encouraged us, supported us, loved us, and prayed for us. In addition to the customary "Brother Bob," I am also known as dad and papaw. One of my favorite breakfasts is huevos fritos, frijoles, and tortillas, with a good hot sauce and a cup of rich Colombian coffee! My greatest joy in life is being part of the kingdom; my #1 priority is to advance "kingdom things" and to help develop authentic "kingdom people." I seek to serve and share the good news about Jesus everywhere I go, helping people find Jesus and helping people mature as disciples of Jesus. One of the greatest blessings of my life is to be loved by countless people around the world!

It’s Sunday Again: Restoring God’s Priorities to My Life

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

[Note: Christians understand Sunday in various ways.  One of the reasons for assembly and worship is to rebalance life.  Today’s reflection focuses on the possibility of constant transformation as we adjust our minds and hearts.]

The average time it takes for the human brain to react is measured in milliseconds.  This is the amount of time it takes for what is inside of you to come out.

One of the memorable illustrations I have used through decades of preaching comes from carrying water to the pigs at Grandma’s house when I was a lad. We filled the bucket as full as possible so we did not have to make as many trips. The bucket was filled to overflowing. First, when the bucket was really full, you could not put anything more in it. Second, it was almost impossible to carry a really full bucket without sloshing a little out. Third, when that happened, what came out was what was in the bucket. Our lives are like that—when our hearts are really filled with God things, there is not room for other things. We get bumped as we go through life and what is in our hearts will spill out. When that happens, what comes out is what is in our heart.

The nature of our lives is reflected in how we react.

    Anger or understanding.
    A haughty attitude or a prayer of surrender.
    A complacent ear or a compliant, obedient heart.
    Fear of the world or compassion for a world that is lost in sin.

What is in you will come out…so let the Word dwell in you.
