When Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they fell from the grace of God. Their eyes were opened to the existence of sin and they chose to follow it instead of God. Ever since that day, every person ever born has been given that same choice and … Continue reading What are You Doing With God’s Grace?
This weekend many people will celebrate Easter. Most will exalt the Easter bunny and the gifts of chocolate that he supposedly brings. But Christians will exalt Christ Jesus because the gift He brings is salvation. Let's come to the cross and celebrate together! The greatest act of love that this world has ever witnessed happened … Continue reading Come to the Cross!
Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? —He is revealed by the Spirit of God to those who hunger for God. 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; … Continue reading Isaiah 53: The Epitome of Love
As Christians, we are supposed to love God, but how many of us actually know why we love God? Sometimes we get confused between the gift and the giver and we tend to value the gifts and the promises more than we value the actual One who gives them to us. So we need to … Continue reading Gratitude or Love
Most Christians know that our sins were nailed to the cross with Jesus on that dark day many years ago. But do they realize the full impact of what actually happened that day? The destiny of mankind was forever changed as Jesus rose from the Cross to be King. When God—Yeshua—created the garden in Eden, He … Continue reading From the Cross to King!
Much of “Christianity” today has digressed from a commitment to follow Christ to an “everything goes” attitude that gives false spiritual security. It’s a “new age religion” that says we can do our own thing and know that God loves and accepts each one of us just as we are now. It’s no wonder that this deception … Continue reading Truth or Comfort Zone
As Christians, we all know that Jesus is the Christ who came to take away the sins of the world. But did you know that salvation is not just a general observation— that it’s really personal? Did you know that YOU are the reason He came—and that YOU were the object of the cross? Jesus came … Continue reading The Object of the Cross
Our world is quickly racing toward convenience and short cuts in almost every facet of life.

These conveniences require little effort and almost no thought … Continue reading There Are No Shortcuts to the Cross
We all have days when everything goes well and we feel happy and free, and then there are other days when it seems as if Murphy’s Law just takes over. We get frustrated and stressed, and we feel that everything we’re going for in life is just not going to happen. We take our eyes … Continue reading Jesus is Our Only Hope!
Like most other Canadians, I joined in with the traditional celebration of Thanksgiving this past weekend and there was so much that I had to be thankful for. I have so many wonderful blessings from God and I’m grateful for every one of them. I have to pinch myself sometimes to realize that I’m alive … Continue reading Being Thankful Just One Day a Year

Many religions will have us believe that we can “earn” God’s forgiveness through works - give financial aid, support those who come to us for help, and pray for those in need. And these good deeds for this purpose should stay with that religion because it is NOT a prerequisite from the Lord for forgiveness, … Continue reading Can We Earn God’s Forgiveness?
Faith is not a virtue that we are born with or that we just inherit one day. It is something that we have to seek out and work at to keep. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we enter God’s world, and the hopes and dreams that it holds are endless. They … Continue reading Let Faith Arise!
I have lost many friends to cancer in the last few years, and I know so many more who are currently stricken with this horrendous disease and who are battling it with their very lives. It grieves me beyond words that so many people - so many Christians - will turn to the world of … Continue reading Who Will You Choose to be Your Healer?
The Bible is all about love and it tells us that God is the epitome of love. John 3:16 says that He gave His own Son as a sacrifice for us, and although this shows what the essence of love is, it gets lost in the modern world. Even in the Christian realm love has … Continue reading What is love?
Many Christians think that we only need to forgive the people we love and that it's not necessary to forgive the ones who have offended us that are just acquaintances or people we really don't like anyway. Or we think that because we're King's kids we don't have to lower ourselves to forgive the people of world, after … Continue reading Love and Forgiveness
God is love and everything God does is initiated in love and because of love. He created us because He wanted to have a family and He gave us everything to keep us healthy, happy and content. This is the beginning of the Love of God. God walked in the Garden of Eden with Adam … Continue reading The Beginning of Love
Often when we're standing in faith and believing God for something, be it healing, finances, a relationship, a job, whatever it is our focus is on us because it's our need. Our every thought is directed to strengthening our own faith and trust in God for the answer, but we need to step outside of our own little … Continue reading Faith Isn’t Always About “Me”
"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me."...John 12:32 As Good Friday approaches, we are reminded that Christ was lifted up from the earth as He made Himself a sacrifice for our sins. What can be more rewarding than knowing that because we honor what Christ has … Continue reading God’s promise
