When the Devil Tries to Sneak Up On You

Did you know the devil wants to sneak up on you? He prowls around like a lion just looking for the right opportunity.

If Satan came to you in a little red suit with a pitchfork and announced himself as the devil, you wouldn’t believe a word he said. I wish he would, but he is cunning and disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).  Read more…

The Rag

Today’s blog is short and sweet. Oh so sweet.

Last weekend I spoke in Palmer, Iowa, surrounded by wheat fields, cornfields, and soybean fields.

Combines worked through the night.
