Mercy, Peace, and Love

The peace, love, and joy of life that we once knew through reverencing God's laws have been replaced with challenge and even stress because of new social rights and opinions. As Christians, we need to continually study the Scriptures and spend time in prayer and worship to know God's truth and live in His peace. … Continue reading Mercy, Peace, and Love

Have you noticed that when Jesus walked the earth, He didn't gather everyone together for a negative gab session to discuss the evil plots of the religious and political leaders?

No Greater Love

There is nothing more precious to us than our children. We love them, bless them, protect them, and teach them to follow God.

Tell People the Truth

God tells us to love everyone regardless of culture, status or lifestyle because His Spirit lives in us and God loves everyone—so we need to love everyone, as well.

You Can’t Buy Love

It’s an old saying that's been used to cover many diverse situations, but it’s a fact that can't be refuted: we canNOT buy love.

Only ONE person in the world's history has ever truly loved … Continue reading You Can’t Buy Love

Am I a Christian?

Sometimes it’s difficult to tell on face value who is a Christian—a true believer in Christ—and who just professes to be one.

However, it’s … Continue reading Am I a Christian?

The Boundaries of Love

When we think of the word “love” our minds reflect on several aspects of love in our own lives.

Gifts From the Heart

When we first get married, we have a basic idea of how we want to decorate our home. We have a particular theme for our decor such as contemporary or country, and we try hard to turn our home into the picture perfect atmosphere. Unfortunately, life doesn't always adhere to our desires and so we're more likely than not to … Continue reading Gifts From the Heart

Love Your Enemies

Most Christians are familiar with Matthew 5:44 where we're told to love our enemies, but too often we become confused with the connotation of loving a bad person when we're dealing with the world.
