Some people erroneously believe they must clean up their lives before coming to Jesus. They are sadly ashamed of their past: the dirty baggage they carry, the scars they created or endured, the hidden hurt laying on their hearts. They allow past sin to bind them.
If you are one of those misinformed souls not familiar with the Good News, let me share with you the truth Jesus taught and lived by some 2000 years ago. I know 2000 years seems long in the human time frame, but have no worries –
Some may not like his style, but facts are facts and one can not dispute Donald Trump is accomplishing much needed objectives for those of Christian faith. No, I would not want him to take the lead as my Bible studies teacher; that was not the reason I voted him into the oval office. Religious teaching is not one of his gifts. Business sense, leadership and making deals are President Trump’s gifts.
Writing as someone blessed not as one included in a “basket of deplorables”, and under my own initiative with no order from my husband, I respectfully believe one day a “powerful woman” with America’s interest at heart will lead this country. But today, I am thankful for President Trump.
Had Mr. Trump not been elected, many changes for the betterment of religious living would not have occurred. Listed are a few prominent ideas that the Trump Administration placed in effect.Continue reading →
Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?
Or did you thank Him this morning, before those same feet hit the floor? Did you acknowledge allowing your eyes to see the sun rise; enabling you to make right any wrongs you committed yesterday? (FYI, as I’m writing, I thanked Jesus for my MS.)
Word and world alphabetically part company at the fourth letter. We Christians, however, understand there is literally a world of difference between these two words. The Word is God’s personal message to us. It is good, purely instructing how to live a holy life. The world, however, reflects man’s rebellion to God. It is not pure, as it contains both good and evil.
Evil is what desperately tries to cunningly trick us away from God’s Word.Continue reading →
God desires you to come to Him during any situation, especially before you make life changing decisions. King David of Israel loved and trusted God, yet he still forgot the need to continually seek Him.Continue reading →
For some reason, a reference to a newly released song recently showed up on my FB. I do not download music or visit music sites so I was surprised to view a music post on the feed. Who knows how FB decides content, right?
Anyway, it’s not the fact that it showed up that drew my curiosity to check out the video. It was the title of the song that stabbed me. Continue reading →
On July 20, 1969, the world witnessed Apollo 11 mission commander Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. Hours before this planned and historic event occurred, Buzz Aldrin, Lunar Module Pilot, carried out another planned and historic event on his own. Colonel Aldrin took communion on the moon.
The following excerpt from Buzz Aldrin’s 2009 book, Magnificent Desolation, offers background to this holy occasion:Continue reading →
There are many courageous and faithful men and women in the Bible. Their stories show dedication and love for God. While some rose from commonness to power, most remained as everyday people choosing to follow the One true God, one day at a time.
There is one man, in his last hours on earth, who became a follower of Jesus. Blessings!
These are just a sampling of people who simply believed in all of God’s goodness and faithfulness, then in their own way shared His truth with others. Their personal stories are an inspiration to us all.
Have you ever heard a story so incredible, you could hardly believe it was true?Unbelievable stories can involve someone surviving a plane crash, feats of heroism, or silly things like how many people fit into a Volkswagen Beetle. (WatchMedaille College students attempt a record.)
When Jesus was thirty, He started a three year ministry traveling around areas of Galilee, Samaria and Judea. During that time Jesus preformed miracles and spoke about God with intimate knowledge. Though Jesus personifies truth, many locals simply could not believe what they saw and heard. Continue reading →
Does the idea of joy and peace seem lost to you? If the answer to that question is yes, reading the book of Romans is a good place to help you find direction.
Written by the apostle Paul before he arrived in Rome, Paul wrote the new Christians there a letter. Paul’s message in his personal letter clearly offers them hope in a loving God through Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Continue reading →
