Over the years I have written several "book" or "booklets" and many, many, many newsletter and bulletin articles. Because the book market seeks writings to meet specific needs at specific times, my material has never been accepted. I have a tendency to write what is on my mind and so I am left with self publishing. So, with the encouragement from my wife and others, I am beginning this blog in order to put my "ramblings" "out there"! I hope you enjoy!


Please note that while my intentions are to use good grammar, because of the way in which some of the material presented here is presented (orally) the grammar and syntax might not always be the best English. Also note that good theology is not always presented in the best English so there may be times when the proper grammar rules are purposely broken.

Good Friday Thoughts

Good Friday Thoughts
(What Good Friday Means)

My self worth is not related to:
how new my phone is
how big or small I am
how new my car is
how tan or not tan my skin is
how new my computer is
how my eyes are shaped
how my nose is shaped
what title I have
my career
how big my house is
what color my eyes are
my hair color or lack of hair
what I think of myself
how much stuff I have
how much I earn

As a matter of fact in and of myself I am worthless.
My worth is actually the fact that
I am conceived and born in sin (Ps. 51:5)
Every inclination of my heart is evil all the time (Gen. 6:5)
Even against my desire I daily sin much (Rom. 7:14-21)
I am the sinner (Luke 18:13)

Thanks be to God that on this day, Good Friday,
God gives me my worth because of His great love for me,
Love that includes the facts that
Jesus was conceived and born for me (as promised in Gen. 3:15)
Jesus lived perfectly for me, in my place because I cannot
Jesus took all my sins upon Himself
Jesus suffered the punishment for all my sins (even those I have yet to commit)
Jesus suffered hell for me
Jesus died for me
And Jesus rose for me, victorious over sin, death and the devil.

My self worth is that God loves me so much that He gives me value, eternal value!
Thanks be to God!
