• 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

    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.

     

  • Holy scars

    Proud of his scar from a wreck on his bike, the little boy asked the preacher if he would like to see his “booboo.”

     

    Some proudly display their battle scars while others try to hide them. Scars are descriptive and tell of past injuries or testify to present healing.

     

  • Have more faith

    Look at the birds of the air: They do not sow or reap or gather into barns--and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? (Matthew 6:26)

     

    My cat is as happy as she can be. She comes every day to my door and just stares at me through the window.

     

    Why?

     

  • April Fool?

    Posted:03/31/2017

    With April Fool’s Day approaching and the anticipation of a prank or two, let us remember the words of David in Psalms 14:1, “The fool says in his heart, “God does not exist.” We must understand the seriousness of being a fool. Webster defines a fool as, “a person who acts unwisely or imprudently.”
