ONLY HUMAN JOHN 3:8-21
by Howard Andersen on May 14th, 2024

HARBINGER JOHN 1:19-34
by Howard Andersen on March 19th, 2024
Interesting word, harbinger. Not a word we use very often. This is a word that could be used interchangeably, like the word announcer: One who makes ready for something to come. That is the role of every believer - not to be the way, but to pave the way for something or someone greater. An announcer is not the star; they prepare people for the event. That's the complete role and responsibility of ...  Read More

OUT OF THE DARKNESS JOHN 1:6-13
by Howard Andersen on March 5th, 2024
One of the scariest moments of my life occurred when I was young. My friends and I were exploring old limestone mines in southern Illinois. Deep inside a mine on a hill, my best friend decided to turn off our only flashlight. The darkness was so intense that we couldn't see anything in front of us. I was terrified and couldn't even move. However, when the flashlight was turned back on, we made our...  Read More
FREEDOM LIVES COLOSSIANS 2:14-19
