Gossip Stops with Me!

my lips are sealedOne of the things in this world that is even easier to spread than soft butter is dirty gossip! It seems that people love to hear the bad, evil, sick, pathetic, conniving and harmful things about someone a lot more than they want to hear the good things about them. Continue reading

What Good is the Bible?

lamp-unto-my-feetOften when Christians try to convert non-believers, they quote verses of Scripture hoping to prove that God is real and alive today. But sadly, to someone who doesn’t know God and who has never read the Bible and who attributes the sorrows and tribulations of this world to an uncaring Creator, the Bible has no value. So what good is the Bible if we can’t use it to witness to people? Continue reading

Watch Your Mouth!

Unwholesome talkWe study the Bible and learn Scriptures and we attend church and join in the praise with the rest of the congregation. As time goes on we begin to feel as if we have transformed into a Christian. We made it! We feel good about ourself because we have absorbed so much and have come so far in our walk with God. But if we want to know just how much we actually believe Continue reading

Yay Me!

all-about-godWe read in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” But too often we interpret this to mean, “God is giving me the strength to be all I can be.” We’re encouraged to make our choices and then ask God to bless us and give us the strength and ability to be the very best at what we’ve chosen. But it’s not about God exalting us to glory; Continue reading

God says “Keep the Peace”

rev-6-4This world is corrupt with sin and sickness and it’s bringing fear upon people everywhere. The Ten Commandments are being replaced with “rights” and with “privilege” to those with money and power, making God’s law of no effect. The time we’re living in is bringing sorrows and hardships and now more than ever before, we need to obey God and keep the peace. Continue reading

What is the Reward of my Faith?

reward-of-faithThe subject of faith is a very controversial one in the religious realm and few truly understand what faith is, why we need it and how our lives are blessed because of it. We all know the scripture at Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” But do we really understand what the reward of faith is? Continue reading

Yes, God Hates Some Things!

god-hatesThe impression of God in this new age is that His only character is love. He loves everyone, accepts everything and has made a home in Heaven for all of us. We’re led to believe that if we are a real Christian then we, too, will love everyone and accept everyone as equally loved by God; after all, God is our Heavenly Father and we are all His creation. We’re told that the real “god” doesn’t’ hate Continue reading

Christianity is not about ME!

all-about-godThe best decision anyone will make in their lifetime is to receive the salvation of Christ. Unfortunately, many people think that now, with Jesus on their side to ward off the evils of this world, they can be all they want to be and have all they desire. But they have it all backwards. Christianity is not about “me”! Continue reading

Who are the Children of God?

we-are-the-worldThere’s an attitude spreading across the globe today that wants us to put our differences aside and live as one big multi-cultural family under God. It says that regardless of what we call Him, we are all God’s children. Well, God does love everyone, but we are not all His children. Continue reading

The Joy of the Lord

choosing-joyHave you ever wondered how some people can be so happy and carefree one minute, and then become totally ticked and angry at the slightest dispute the next? It’s because the happiness that they display when everything is going well is a result of their emotions. And our emotions can and do change, just like the weather. Continue reading

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

The-Night-Before-Christmas-Logo-1‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Every creature was praising, even the mouse.

The Bibles were open to the pages with care

And showed us so clearly that Jesus was near.

The children were singing and clapping their hands

With visions of a baby being born in the land. Continue reading
