Few people realize the true expanse of life. God made us, His children, to be with Him through eternity. But Adam broke the bond when he disobeyed and let sin in, forcing God, who is Holy, to separate Himself from us. Yet, God still loved us and sent Jesus to become a man to die … Continue reading The Expanse of Life

Arguing Bible Principles
The new Christian faith comprises many diverse interpretations of Scripture. However, there's only one way to be a Christian—follow Jesus, study the Scriptures, and let God's Spirit interpret His Truth. Sadly, many real Christians argue Bible principles with those deceived to get them to change, creating contention and pushing them further into deception. As God's … Continue reading Arguing Bible Principles
Opinion or Truth
Today, the benchmark of "truth" is being replaced by personal opinion. Many aggressively defend their right to choose their own truth, and some Christians get caught in the hype and argue with them. But God never told us to argue with a fool: He told us to PEACEFULLY preach the gospel. His Truth is precious, … Continue reading Opinion or Truth
Opinions and Values
The values and benchmarks in our world are changing. Personal opinion and biased rights are replacing security and peace, and this new way of life is breeding hostility and aggression. It can be easy for Christians to get caught up in the hype when someone's opinion and actions challenge our beliefs. But when we stay … Continue reading Opinions and Values
Honey or Vinegar
Our job as Christians isn't to bring on world peace; it's to shine as lights of hope in the darkness so others can see the love and peace of God in us. But we can't do that if we're easily provoked into heated arguments over Scripture or self-driven to tell someone about Jesus who doesn't … Continue reading Honey or Vinegar

Our commission is to share the truth, teach those who are wrong, and correct those who are being misled. But we also have to agree … Continue reading Be a Peacemaker
I am a Child of God!
The entire human race began with Adam and Eve; yet, we are not all related. Sin has separated us from God, the Creator of Heaven and earth, and only those who turn from the sin of this world and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be forgiven and redeemed back to God, our … Continue reading I am a Child of God!
The Family of God
The family of God is made up of children from all over the world. We come from diverse backgrounds and cultures, and our lives are different in many ways, but the one thing we have in common is Jesus! He has washed away our sins and filled us with His Spirit, and that makes us … Continue reading The Family of God
Look to God, not to the World!
We live in this world but we are not of this world. We need to be wise concerning what's going on around us and to us, but we are not to give in, give up or accept anything that is not of God. We have to stay updated with what's happening, but we need to … Continue reading Look to God, not to the World!
Whose Life is it, Anyway?
The more we study the Scriptures and spend time in prayer and worship with the Lord, the more we realize who we are. We want to know the truth, and we don't seek God's hand for blessings, but rather, we seek His face to know Him. As we give ourselves to God, we begin to … Continue reading Whose Life is it, Anyway?
