“I WILL…”

by John Schofield

December 27, 2016 The new year is approaching quickly. Ready or not, here it comes. What will be unfolded in the oncoming train of time? Many of its challenges and opportunities will come to us regardless of what we can do or think. Time, like a river, catches us in its current and carries us […]

Christmas Meditation 2016

by John Schofield

Christmas Meditation 2016 Every year I try and think of a different vantage point from which to think upon the Christmas story. Like a rainbow of many colors, the Biblical record gives us many characters from which the account of Christ’s birth can be examined. The Light of the World shown through the prism of revelation gives […]

How’s The Weather?

by John Schofield

November 28, 2016 No snow! The grass is still green. The temperatures are moderate for this time of the year. I for one am enjoying the break from winter. I know it has not officially started yet, but this is unusual nice fall weather. The weather is something we all talk about, especially if you […]

Blessings and the Blesser

by John Schofield

November 22, 2016 Mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, relish tray, succulent juicy turkey, sparkling punch, seven-layer salad, homemade rolls smothered in real butter, and pumpkin pie, pecan pie, cherry pie, apple pie and please no mincemeat pie,… what a Thanksgiving feast!

So What Are You Afraid Of?

by John Schofield

November 1, 2016 Where does fear come from? Fear is really a crisis of faith. The spirit of fear does not come from God. It either comes with our own uncertainty in dealing with circumstances beyond our control. Or fear comes from our musings about the potential ‘what if’ happenings. For example, some people are […]

A Cup of Water In My Name

by John Schofield

October 25, 2016 This past Friday, my wife and I got to travel to Nashville, TN to give a ten-minute testimony of my salvation experience at the National Gideon’s convention. The Gideons wanted me to come because when I trusted Christ as my Savior I was reading from my New Testament which was given to […]

Perfect Purchase Price Paid

by John Schofield

October 10, 2016 Before Jesus left the cross to go to the grave, He said these words: “It is finished.” All the heavy lifting for the redemption of our souls was carried by Him. It is the epitome of delusional self-centered thinking for one to believe they could add one iota of merit to the […]

Certainty of Heaven

by John Schofield

September 19, 2016 You may be wondering if I had dropped off the face of the earth. Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back online. We have had to walk through the valley of the shadow of death with my sister-in-law. I praise God she was a believer on the Lord Jesus Christ […]
