• Bold and Confident

    Posted:07/21/2017

    Hebrews 4:16 (ESV) "Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

     

    Each day has its own wonders and challenges. They can be either positive or negative. It all depends upon our relationship with God and our personal dependence on and security in our Lord.

     

  • Celebrations

    Posted:07/14/2017

    Each year on July 4 we celebrate our nation’s independence with parties, fireworks and cookouts.

     

    In much the same manner, we celebrate birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduations. We can read in God’s holy word of other celebrations.

     

  • An attitude of Selflessness

    “Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves”. (Philippians 2:3)

     

  • What Are We Saved From?

    Posted:06/23/2017

    As Christians, we are always concerned if someone is “saved”. Thankfully someone was persistent in making sure we were saved and consequently we want to make sure everyone we encounter is saved too. The question we must ask is saved from what? If we forget to tell people what they are being saved from, they are just jumping through hoops to please man.

  • Good news in bad times

    Posted:06/16/2017

    One need only turn on the TV or open a newspaper to see the chaos and diminishment of law and order both in our homeland and the rest of the world.

     

    Turmoil seems to be the norm. It could be frightening and very compelling: if it were not for Jesus.

     

  • Old Rule – New Twist

    Posted:06/09/2017

    A modern interpretation of “The golden rule” was posted on a church sign “Tweet others as you want to be tweeted.”

     

    Like all other forms of communication twitter can be used in a positive or negative way. The golden rule when practiced makes a positive difference. This is true of all our daily actions whether at home, work, play, or tweeting.

     

  • God’s love is ever present

    Posted:06/02/2017

    How often in life do our plans get interrupted because of pressures of everyday life?

     

    Hectic schedules, balancing budgets, illnesses and dealing with disagreeable people can disrupt our plans.

     

    These disruptions can keep us from accomplishing our plans but not God’s plans for our lives.

     

  • Become planted with God

    Posted:05/26/2017

    Planting time is upon us.

     

    Over the long winter months you may have poured over seed catalogs as you planned your garden or flower beds. Now you’ve made your purchases and wait to plant them in the ground. You know the handful of seeds you plant will yield a return many times greater than what was planted. Seeds packed with potential.

  • Must be born again

    Posted:05/19/2017

    We cannot be born a Christian. We have to be born again (John 3:5,7). “Born from above” is what that really means. Jesus said, “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven we have to be converted.”

     

    To be converted means to be changed, to let Christ come into our heart and satisfy that longing we have.
