Part 10 of 23Eternal RewardsI arrived in my best attire. The courthouse was packed with busy people buzzing from place to place.

Glindo State Park Wyoming / Eternal Rewards / Judgement Avoided and Life Appraisal / Episode 10 & 11

Part 11 of 23Eternal RewardsI've encountered a number of people who say they are not interested in eternal rewards; they just want to please God. That's really ironic. It's ironic because it's impossible to please God or get close to Him without believing in and seeking the rewards He offers. The writer of Hebrews says […]

Eternal Rewards

Part 16.5 of 23Eternal RewardsIf I asked twenty people, “What is the sermon on the mount about?" I would probably get twenty different answers. When teaching about the sermon on the mount, most Bible teachers focus on the various subsections of the sermon but miss the single consistent theme in the whole lesson. It's for […]

Flaming Gorge Wyoming / Mountain Side Chat / Eternal Rewards / Episode 17

Part 17 of 23Eternal RewardsMy daughter can be challenging to motivate, as is true of nearly any three year old. Quite often I offer her a reward for accomplishing a task.

Mueller State Park Colorado / Regalia / Eternal Rewards / Episode 22

Part 22 of 23Eternal RewardsIt seems that many don't know Jesus' true identity. Sure, they've heard Him called "king," but lots apparently think that is a euphemism, for "a really neat guy."
