If Jesus Came to Your House

Published by: Sam Crabtree
August 21, 2014

Digging through my files in search of something else, I came across this poem by Lois Kendall Blanchard Eades, English professor, poet, and mother of a university president. She died three years ago with Alzheimer’s.

If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two—
If He came unexpectedly, I wonder what you'd do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,
And all the food you’d serve to Him would be the very best,
And you would keep assuring Him you're glad to have Him there—
That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.

Loving the Brother Zealously Killed

Published by: Sam Crabtree
April 11, 2014

Saul, prior to becoming Paul, approved of the stoning to death of Stephen.

And Saul approved of [Stephen’s] execution.—Acts 8:1

Today, those two stand shoulder to shoulder, arm in arm, worshiping the One who saved both of them. Paul has no more animosity toward Stephen, only love; and Stephen holds absolutely no grudge against Paul.
