Two Ways

Dr. J.T. ParishA Christian man asked a high school student what he planned to do in life. The student said that his first plan was to complete high school. The man asked, “What then?” The young man replied that he hoped to go to the university as a pre-med student and then on to medical school. The Christian man answered “That is wonderful, but what then?” The audacious young man told of his desire to become a doctor and serve some small community that had no doctor.

He was asked “What then?” “I hope to someday retire and would like to travel to every continent in the world.” “What then?” asked the older man. When the young man answered by saying “I suppose someday I will die.” The Christian man asked one more time, “What then?”

Can They See Christ?

Dr. J.T. ParishA young man got a new job, and he was the only Christian who worked there. When he was asked if the other workers came against him because he was a believer he answered, “O no, they never found out I am a Christian.”

John Osteen said, “The world has got so churchy, and the church so worldly that you can hardly tell them apart.” We should be able to see the difference between the church and the world. Our Christian faith ought to be observable by the life we live.

Lord, Teach America to Pray

Dr. J.T. ParishGeneral Douglas MacArthur said, “History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.

A minister said to President Lincoln during the worst days of the Civil War, “I surely hope to Lord is on our side.” Mr. Lincoln replied, “I am not at all concerned about that. I know the Lord is always on the side of right. It is my constant prayer that this nation should be on the Lord’s side.”

Saved from What?

Dr. J.T. ParishA theology professor was about to be late for an afternoon class, and as he rushed across campus, a young man ran up to him, looked him straight in the eye, and blurted out, Sir, are you saved?” the theology stunned the young man by asking, “Saved from what?” The young man was caught off guard and didn’t know what to say. His zeal and courage was admirable and especially his love for souls, but it would have helped if he had a better understanding of what salvation really is.

Where Unity Begins

Dr. J.T. ParishThe psalmist said, “How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.” Unity is good and pleasant! The Apostle Paul spoke of “Keeping the unity of the Spirit.” (Ephesians 4:3) he followed ten verses later by writing, “Until we come into the unity of the faith.” He was surely speaking of unity within the body of Christ. There is nothing more pleasant than the spiritual atmosphere in a local church where there is unity in both the spirit and the faith. However, the church is not the place where unity is first emphasized in the Word of God.

Keep Swinging

Dr. J.T. ParishHall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron, said, “My motto was to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly, or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.” Anyone who swings the bat is a dangerous hitter. The ball player who stands at the plate and is called out on strikes with his bat on his shoulder never knows what would have happened if he had swung at the ball.

That principle works in life as well as in baseball. It is no disgrace to try and fail. The disgrace is to fail because you didn’t even try. My son asked me what I thought accounted for what little success I have had in the ministry. My answer: “I kept showing up every morning.” I never gave up. I decided to never be called out on strikes. If I go down, I will go down swinging.
