The Hidden Years

May 21, 2017

By Evangelist John BJ Hall

As I am sitting here this evening writing this blog post, I think about the so called “hidden years” in Jesus’ life. I think of how wondrous it is that He would spend the first thirty years of His life in the humdrum, work-a-day world of a common laborer.

Be Careful Little Hands What You Do

April 26, 2017

By Evangelist John BJ Hall

As a child in Sunday School we would sing a song the second verse of which says, “Oh be careful little hands, what you do. Oh be careful  little hands, what you do. For the Father up above is looking down in tender love. Oh be careful little hands what you do.”

How to Become Spiritual

February 13, 2015

What do chili con carne and Christian con carne have in common?  Meat -- the flesh.  In chili the more meat the better the taste. However, in the Christian, the presence of flesh creates a whole set of ugly problems.  The Christian with flesh is represented in Scripture as a carnal person.  Thou…

When Praying for Other Believers, Pray for these Eight Fruit

January 17, 2015


Ask that they may bear good fruit (Colossians 1:10b)

The obvious understanding of this prayer would be the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-25. However there are other fruit that also need to be present in our lives.
