This morning I opened the Meekins family Bible that I inherited from my mom and dad. The Bible is almost 70 years old. The cover and pages of the Bible are worn, but I think that is a good thing. A Bible that is not used is a sad affair, but our family Bible was read every night before my br…

I believe a society is best measured by its heroes. In our society the label of hero is most often assigned to those who exert violent force against perceived evil. This concept of heroism eclipses all others by a very wide margin.

I truly believe that the happiest people in the world should be God’s people. God has called us through the great commission of Mark 16:15-16, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall …

My favorite definition of football is 22 people desperately in need of rest being watched by 80,000 people desperately in need of exercise—and that’s just in the stadium. On Sunday, millions of folks will gather in front of TVs in homes and sports bars to watch the survivors of a long season…

It is interesting how our concept of a prisoner is so two sided. On the one hand we view those who we think have been properly condemned for a crime as an unredeemable miscreant who justly deserves to be scorned and incarcerated. On the other hand, we see others prisoners as people who were …

My wife, Barbara and I had recently married and were living in Palm Desert, California.  The year was 1974, and the season was early fall, when we met a very special man.  Barbara and I had found a wonderful church to attend that seemed to be overflowing with the love of the Lord.  Every tim…

Luke records three accounts of Saul’s conversion in the Book of Acts (Acts 9:1-19; 22:6-16; 26:12-18). The conversion of Saul is not only a powerful testimony to the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but it also provides more evidence of God’s plan of salvation.

I’m writing this parchment of writ on the eve of my 71st birthday.  Being 71 years old and being in the ministry for almost 42 years, for sure I just might have learned a few important things about life.

The burning religious issue today is not whether God's favor includes everyone but rather how we can enjoy the benefits of that favor. How does one obtain peace and joy as God intended, be it for the few or the many? When the angels declared peace on earth at Christ's birth, what did that me…
