Two-Way Street

A relationship with anyone is a two-way street. It takes both parties' love, commitment, and sacrifice to turn a friendship into a lasting relationship. Jesus wants to have a relationship with us! He loved us before we were born, sacrificed His own body on the cross to take the punishment for our sins, and promised … Continue reading Two-Way Street

First Reactions

When we run into other Christians who appear unfriendly or strangers who treat us rudely, often our first reaction is to return the negative gesture. But this is wrong because we don't know what they're going through or how badly they're hurting on the inside—but God knows. He may have put them on our path … Continue reading First Reactions

Life or Death

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they put us on the course for death—eternal separation from God. When our physical bodies die, our soul returns to God (Ecclesiastes 12:7) to be judged, and because of our sinful nature, we're all destined for a dark eternal separation from Him. But Jesus came and died on the … Continue reading Life or Death

God abounds in patience, overflows in … Continue reading The Lord is Good

A mother's job lasts a lifetime, and it comes with many joys and sorrows and endless responsibilities. She loves her children (Isaiah 49:15) and is a comfort to her family (Isaiah 66:13). She's clothed in strength and dignity (Proverbs 31:25), and teaches her children about God (Deuteronomy 6:6–7). They call her blessed and her husband … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day

Rewarding our Motives

People work towards their own goals and earthly rewards for their labor in this world. But as Christians, we labor for Jesus and tell others about His love and salvation because we love Him and want them to know Him. Often, we won't see the results of our labor while we're here, but when we … Continue reading Rewarding our Motives

Wisdom

The people of this world are wise in their ways (Luke 16:8) and depend on specialists for everything in life. Although they might not like it, they accept the diagnosis and suffer through whatever prognosis is enforced. But as Christians, God wants us to be wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16), and He wants us to … Continue reading Wisdom

How to Beat Deception

They're deceived by new doctrines that change God's laws, deny His holiness, and affirm all the benefits of Christ, including Heaven. Sadly, they won't get to Heaven because they don't know Jesus and still carry their sins. But we don't need to be deceived because God has given us the Bible to keep us from … Continue reading How to Beat Deception
