THE GOOD REPORT

Hiding the Word in Our Hearts

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” Psalm 119:11 How do we hide God’s Word in our hearts? I don’t know any way other than memorization. But don’t let that scare you. I’m not talking about memorizing whole chapters, although that’s...

Fixing Our Eyes On Jesus

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:1-2 NIV). Many of us probably identify with Peter. He would make bold statements and even take bold actions, only to fall flat on his face a few moments later. Or...

Present Concerns, Though Written 72 Years Ago

“Do not fear” Luke 12:32 This word from the very erudite C. S. Lewis is a fitting “Good Report.” From his book, “Present Concerns: Journalistic Essays,” published in 1948. Substitute “atomic bomb” with “coronavirus,” and you will find—though written 72 years ago—it...

Strength for Every Occasion

An interesting passage in the beginning of the book of Judges: “These are the nations the LORD left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not...

God-Identity

Know your identity! I love John’s description of the night when Jesus washed all the disciples’ feet. John says, “Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God, so he got up from the...

Confession & Forgiveness
