Changing the state flag was a symbolic, necessary and unifying decision, but the evil of slavery is diminished when we start erasing Confederate monuments. Auschwitz is standing for a reason.
  • Speaking at Mount Rushmore on Friday, and from the White House lawn on Saturday, July 4, Donald Trump recast the presidential race. 
  • If nothing else, President Donald Trump’s July Fourth speech at Mount Rushmore clarified the battle lines of our culture war. 
  • Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.  
  • New teams were formed this week in the Philadelphia Softball League after conclusion of four weeks of play and the schedule for the coming month was arranged. W.H. Jones, Porter Jordan, Wink Glover and O.C. Morgan will captain the four teams. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 40:16-17
    In these verses, Isaiah is addressing the propensity in men to look everywhere but God to sustain and bless their lives. In verse 15, we saw that though the nations in all their wealth and power are impressive to us, they are not even as a drop in the bucket or a speck of dust on the scales to Almighty God.
  • Isaiah 40 is designed to take your focus away from everything else and consider the Sovereign Lord, the one true, living God.
  • In these verses we have rhetorical questions to help us understand the Lord’s attributes. Sadly, we aren’t inclined to dwell on the awesome attributes of God. We are nudged this way by the previous verses, which spoke of good news being spread widely and loudly (verse 9).
  • Earlier this week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot had big news — the city is opening up its iconic Lakefront Trail after months of being closed off as part of a COVID-19 lockdown.
  • As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 40:9-11
    In verses 6-8, the Lord directed us to focus on men, their power and righteousness. He wants us to see that there is a reality beyond what we can see in external appearances. He compares men to the beauty of flowers; their glory is short-lived. There is no hope or future in trusting in yourself or men for salvation.
