With Friends Like These . . . Job’s Friends and Religious Foolishness (Introduction)

Friends: I want to begin a series on the book of Job. In looking over my posts, I just realized that I dealt with this subject back in 2014! But I’m hoping that this series of posts will eventually become my next book. So, please read my posts and provide any comments or questions that you have.

The first step for me in doing this study is to unit-read the book of Job. Unit-reading is reading straight through a book of the Bible in one sitting. Will you join me in doing this? Here’s a check box to remind you to unit-read the whole book! Would you drop me an email when you’ve unit-read the book of Job for our ongoing study? (theoprof@bellsouth.net)

My next post will give a few reflections on what I’ve seen in trying to take in the book as a whole.

Great Quotes from A.W. Tozer (Unbelief)

“Unbelief is not the failure of the mind to grasp truth. It is not the unsoundness of a logical premise. It is not a bad conclusion drawn from a logical premise. It is a moral sin.”

Great Quotes from A.W. Tozer (Surrender)

“I wonder how many Christians in our day have truly and completely abandoned themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord. We are very busy telling people to ‘accept Christ’ — and that seems to be the only word we are using. We arrange a painless acceptance.”

A Devotional on Psalm 1

I’m beginning an online course with a group of Ethiopian pastors. We are covering my new book Bless-ed! 52 Weekly Blessings You Have As A Believer — and How to Help Your Lost Friends Find Theirs. Here is a short devotional (about 5 minutes’ long) I’ve made for our first class.

“O, Blessed Scalpel!” (A Look at Hebrews 4:12)

I am well acquainted with the surgeon’s primary instrument, the scalpel. I’ve gone through two hernia surgeries, the removal of a kidney tumor that was supposed to be cancerous but wasn’t, achilles surgery, and heart surgery. By God’s grace I’m still around and kicking. [I also get an injection into my right eye every three months to slow down my macular degeneration, but that’s another story.]

I’m incredibly grateful for those surgeons who have operated on me. But there is Another Surgeon, a divine One, whose cutting is critical in my life. And His instrument is God’s Word, the Bible.  We read in Hebrews 4 –

I’m aware that the imagery here is of a “double-edged sword.” And a sword’s normal purpose isn’t to be used for surgery, but for execution! However its purpose here isn’t to end one’s life, but to penetrate one’s life, one’s heart. This sword’s goal, of course, is to “judge the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” And that’s why I say, “O, Blessed Scalpel!”

Today’s Challenge: Where in your heart is required some serious spiritual surgery? Expose that area to God the Holy Spirit whose primary instrument in changing us is the Word of God!

A New Experience — Drag Racing in NC!

Friends: Linda and I are in the NC mountains for a few days’ vacation. We went to a drag race the other night, primarily so we could watch the fireworks show at the end. The fireworks were put on at 10 pm after about 10 different drag races. As we were leaving, we were asked, “Why are you leaving? Now it’s time for the ‘big boys’ to race?!” Here are two videos I took. Enjoy!
