5. Who Will Roll Away The Stone? - When We Face Troubles in Life
Followers of Jesus often face what seem to them insurmountable
problems...challenges for which there seem to be no apparent solutions.
They will nevertheless do what is right, what they can do, even if there
is a part of the puzzle they do not have or cannot conceive. Trust in
their God drives them on. With God, there has always been a way through
in the past, so why not trust Him now? ...
6. The Resurrection Appearances Chronologically Arranged
When we encounter the resurrection accounts in the New Testament we face
a challenge in putting all the pieces together in a way that the
sequence of the events flow in logical order. This is due to the fact
that no one Gospel presents all, or even most of the data. Some of the
data also seems to conflict. ...
7. Lord, Should We Fight?
An old hymn reminds us that sometimes we must "learn to lose with God."
In losing our power, our significance, our place in the lights, our fame
and fortune and all that we hold dear, especially our reputation in the

13. Career Special: Watch Out - It Could Come Back to Haunt You
Fresh out of technical school, I went in search of a job. I held a

mowing grass in the medium between highways. It wasn't impressive for a
young man with a degree in electronic technology. ...
