We read in the Old Testament that after Moses led the people out of Egypt, they began to engage in terrible acts of sin including idolatry, immorality, and murder. So, God gave Moses some laws known as the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) to be used as a benchmark to govern the people so they would stay away from sin and follow Him. Continue reading
So often in life people take things for granted. Some assume that their way is the right way and they aren’t willing to change and yet expect good results. Others know that they should act on certain issues now but they either, render a callous attitude and put it off until later, or do nothing and just assume that things will work out in the end. Unfortunately, like the lonely pilot who had engine trouble, his assumption of being saved didn’t work when he faced the tragedy of the missing parachute. Continue reading
One of the things that many of us in the civilized world pride ourselves in is our collection of worldly goods. Some of us have the funds to back our expensive material collections while others of us struggle to acquire even a few over a lifetime. But the fact is, most of us can look around our homes and see things that we cherish and in our eyes they have great material worth. But in the end, they are worthless collectibles. Continue reading
The Book of Law that God gave to Moses was God’s law for all mankind; a standard of living that ruled over the people so they could know the difference between right and wrong. But it’s being greatly challenged today. Much of the so-called “church” is modifying God’s laws to meet with their own modern-day lifestyles, and the world is changing the laws so that the abnormal can become the norm. Continue reading
This world is moving speedily toward its end and there is a lot going on around us that confirms things are changing—just as Jesus said they would in the last days. We are surrounded in escalating crime, horrendous acts of anti-Semitism, growing starvation and poverty, and uncontrollable immorality that is sponsored and promoted in every facet of the media around us. If ever there was a time when the gospel of Jesus and His hope of salvation needed to be heard, it’s now! But how will the people hear it if we don’t tell them? Continue reading
Most of us enjoy talking and sharing with our family and friends, and it’s even normal for us to pour our heart out in anguish about a situation or person that has hurt and challenged us. We’re told in James 5:16 to share with each other so that we can pray for each other, and where many of these issues remain private to the glory of God, many more become public ridicule and the targets for spreading rumors. Continue reading
It seems as if the world is becoming saturated with people proclaiming to be Christians. The sad news, though, is that not everyone who calls him or herself a Christian is one, and even many who are don’t show it. Being a Christian is more than speaking words; it’s putting words to action because words alone are not enough. Continue reading

As Mother’s Day approaches, many of us can only look deep into our heart for memories of this person we cherish. We go on each day through a driving force that she put in us as a child, and the hope of a good future that she gave us through her love.
For those of you who are blessed to still have your mother with you, take this day to give her something special that says “Thanks, Mom”; that says, “I love you.”
For me, I will remember my mom for the person who was always there for me. She cried silent tears behind closed doors and tried to keep the atmosphere hopeful and positive when the challenges of life came against us. I will always remember how she would encourage us and motivate us to keep going forward; whose hope in God shone bright In the darkness.
