Nuggets – Spirit, soul, body


Spirit, Soul, Body
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

The threefold nature of mankind reflects, to a degree, the triune nature of the Godhead. Just as each member of the triune God is complete and wholly God, yet distinct, so each aspect of mankind is also the whole, yet distinct. The body of man comprises the entire man, yet he also possesses certain soulish emotions, desires, and propensities; and finally, the total man is endowed with a spiritual, eternal nature, somehow reflecting the image of God.

These three reflect the three great creative acts of God during creation week, identified by the three usages of the Hebrew word bara, or create. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis…

Nuggets – And forty nights


And Forty Nights
“And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.” (Genesis 7:12)

There are nine 40-day periods in Scripture, but on only five of these the notation “and forty nights” is added. On the other four occasions (the spies in Canaan, Goliath’s challenges, Jonah in Nineveh, and the post-resurrection ministry of Christ), we can assume that the activity ceased at night. But on these five it continued unabated.

The first of these was the great Flood. The most intense rains ever experienced on the earth poured torrentially, night and day. One can visualize the stress-filled nights for Noah’s family, with the cries of the dying outside, and no light of the sun or moon to pierce the outer darkness. But, of course, they were all safe in God’s specially designed Ark.

Many years later, Moses twice spent 40 days and 40 nights in the awful…

Jack Buck, Darryl Kile faced same foe in Cards debuts


Fittingly and officially, Jack Buck and Darryl Kile both made their regular-season Cardinals debuts against St. Louis’ biggest rival, the Cubs. Forty-six years apart, Buck witnessed a loss and Kile earned a win.

Buck, the Cardinals’ popular broadcaster, died June 18, 2002, at 77. Kile, a Cardinals starting pitcher who earned the win in St. Louis’ 7-2 victory over the Angels the night Buck died (Boxscore), passed away four days later, June 22, at 33.

In February 1954, Buck was hired to join Harry Caray on the Cardinals’ broadcast team. Caray was entering his 10th season as play-by-play voice of the Cardinals. In its Feb. 17, 1954, edition, The Sporting News reported:

John F. (Jack) Buck, who broadcast Rochester (International) games last season, will be teamed with Harry Caray in airing Cardinal games this year. Buck replaces Gus Mancuso, former major league catcher, as Caray’s partner. Mancuso now is a Cardinal…

Nuggets – The resurrection and the believer


The Resurrection and the Believer
“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:18)

The resurrection of Christ is no less crucial to the gospel than the death of Christ. If He did not rise from the dead, then we who believe in Him “are of all men most miserable” (1 Corinthians 15:19).

Christ’s resurrection assures us, first of all, of our justification. Speaking of Abraham’s faith and the imputation of God’s righteousness to him, Paul writes, “For us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:24-25).

God imparts to us the power to serve Him effectively through the resurrection, “that…
