Our Lives in this world are all temporary. In 2 Corinthians 5 Paul pictures our bodies as tents. This is a great picture from Paul the tentmaker. He may have had bedouins in mind, moving every day with the sparse grass across the desert. He may have been thinking of sojourners traveling to a new city. What comes to my mind is a camping trip.

In 1 Corinthians 15:19 Paul tells believers that if our hope is only in this life we are of all people most miserable. This truth can be applied to cancer patients whether they are…Continue
The 4th chapter of 2 Timothy is Paul's final declaration of faith before he was executed by Nero. When he pinned these words he was in prison and fairly certain of his imminent death.

I have communicated with several people in the last few months that had a much…
