Christmas Tree Galaxy Cluster

James Webb & Hubble Image – 4.3 Billion Light Years – MACS0416 NASA

And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact
representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the
word of His power…..

(Heb 1:3)

Hi Men:

I pray you have had some extended quiet time in the Lord. You might remember Blaise Pascal’s quote: “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” Are we touching a nerve……….?

Thank you for your patience as I continue to figure out this new distribution format.


When the link to that image was sent to me, I once again was blown away. Just to reflect on the fact that, “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host.” (Psalm 33:6) If you want more details on the image above, click here

I want to thank all the men that registered. We look forward to this year’s conference.

Please pray for the Speakers and the Men

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)



I have had a number of opportunities to share the gospel. Here are (2) of them:

I had to visit the bank again and saw the same teller I spoke to back in March. I was hoping to get her, but another window opened up and this friendly gal waved me over. I had my red UNLV shirt on and she commented the she too was a graduate. I told her that, “I compressed my (4) year undergraduate degree into (7) years.” There was a pause and then she started laughing. After the initial transaction, I asked if I could give her something and pulled out the ‘Million Dollar Book of John’ and she LOVED it. I gave her Steps to Peace with God and explained that this was the Gospel and it literally changed my life. Just like the teller next to her, this gal was SO EXCITED and said she was going to read them tonight. Again, it was amazing that NO ONE was in line behind me.

As I was leaving, this young gal asked if I had a minute. I said sure. She was offering a home warranty for Sam’s Club clients. To jump ahead, she had (2) other associates, so I asked if I could give them each a million dollar bill. Well that started the whole conversation and I was there for at least 15 minutes going through all my stuff. They emptied my pockets of, Are You a Good Person, The Million Dollar Book of John and Steps To Peace with God. I shared my testimony and had a great conversation with all three of them. They were excited to have all the materials.

These experiences are so much fun!!


Men: What is your price?
Is the Price too High? – Day 320 Blue Book
The purpose of these devotionals is to help you think Biblically

Solomon said, “As a man thinks, so is he”

1- Luke 18:28


John 5:44 (NASB)

“How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?”

We referred to this verse in the past, because it is so very important that I wanted to include it again (how many of you have it memorized?).  Some of you may agree with this devotional and say you are nothing, but do you get upset when people agree with you?

Inviting Ridicule – Day 325 Red Book
The purpose of these devotionals is to help you think Biblically

Solomon said, “As a man thinks, so is he”

¹ Galatians 6:3



Most of us know that every year, millions of Monarch butterflies travel up to 2500 miles to reach a dozen small patches of forest in central Mexico. This recently produce video by The John 10:10 Project is such a great reminder of our Majestic Creator who can create a navigation and compass system in this insect’s brain — no bigger than a grain of rice.

Note:  In Skip Gray’s book, Insights (page 33), he states, “All it costs to invest in someone else is your life.”  Isaiah 43:4, “I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.”  Due to Dawson Trotman, Skip Gray discipled many men, including Walt Henrichsen.


Men: A very short, thought-provoking message…… 

R.C. Sproul: One question that bothers me, and I’m sure it bothers you is the question, “Why am I a Christian? And some of my closest and dearest friends are not.”

I just talked to a young man who was deeply struggling about this in a convention at Chicago. He was concerned about his brother. He said, “I don’t understand it. Why am I a believer and my brother isn’t.”

Giving Thanks in Everything

With Thanksgiving just one week away, I thought I would once again insert the link that our Friday Group spent 2 weeks discussing several years back. I would encourage you to read the article by John MacArthur, “Giving-Thanks-in-Everything”  Possibly use some portion of it for your Thanksgiving Devotion before you sit down and carve that turkey next Thursday.

Why not also send it to a buddy………

Norman Rockwell’s ‘Saying Grace’

The Saturday Evening Post – 1951


If interested in this famous Rockwell scene, you can read more about it here………


Men: Are your eyeballs on temporal matters right now? Are they engaged in the internet or in the Word?

Does 2 Timothy 3:16-17 create pushback with you?
