Bring Your Bible To School Day!

Bring your Bible to school day

October 4 is Bring Your Bible To School Day! How fantastic is that?

The event, started by Focus on the Family in 2014,  is growing in popularity.  With every state in the nation involved, 8,000 students participated in 2014, 155,000 in 2015, and 356,000 in 2016, and the number for 2017 almost reached 500,000!  

Bring Your Bible To School Day started as a response to America’s schools continuing to forbid religious groups, Bibles, prayer, kneeling for God at football games, or even acknowledging Jesus in the classroom.  

This much needed event  is something Christian students may partake in openly. Continue reading

JESUS Is Calling YOU!

 

Jesus is calling you

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 –

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Continue reading

Thank-you, Jesus!

Thank you Jesus

When was the last time you thanked Jesus?

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.)

Ephesians 5:20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Continue reading

If Jesus really is The Son of God. . .

 

If Jesus really is the Son of God...

Jesus, who was crucified at age thirty-three, spent the last three years of His life on earth traveling the areas of Galilee, Samaria and Judea. His purpose was to share His identity as the way, the truth and the light of God.  

Even while Jesus was a young child of twelve, everyone who heard Him was amazed at His understanding and His answers while discussing scripture.  

Jesus, who has the power of heaven within Him, could have saved Himself from the agony of the cross but He chose to suffer.  Why, people want to know, did this “man” do this? Continue reading

Who do YOU relate to in the Bible?

Who do you relate to in the Bible?

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.

Which of the following persons do you best relate to?

Do You Believe Or Deny Jesus?

Do you believe or deny Jesus?

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. (Watch Medaille 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

5 Tips On Sharing Your Faith

5 tips on sharing your faith

When the opportunity arrises to share Jesus with others, which Christians are called to do, many ideas pass through our minds.  Ideas concerning not how great accepting Jesus will make the other person  “feel”, but on how that person’s possible rejection of Jesus will make us “feel”.

I know on  occasion I have factored in the possibility of rejection, and chose not to talk about my Lord and Savior.  Bad decision! When that happens, we both miss out! Continue reading

God Will Get You Through It!

God will get you through it!

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.

God is Three in One!

God is 3 in 1

Discussions about God sometimes evolve from random conversations with friends. When this happens in the circles I socialize with I really enjoy it because sports and politics usually override group conversations.  Many times when these biblical topics arise, the discussions include questions regarding  truths that I totally believe and have some knowledge of.

I always try to communicate to others what I know about these truths, but on many occasions I realize my lack of knowledge on the subject.  The Bible contains sixty-six separate books with God’s word spoken from the beginning of time. That’s a lot of information! Continue reading

5 Reasons why using – Oh My G**! – is Wrong

Lift Him Up

5 reasons why using OMG**! is wrong

Over the past decades, society has willingly, and I shall also say enthusiastically, decided that exclaiming Oh My G**! is: pertinent, necessary and acceptable in everyday conversations.

However, because of the definition of God, and the way I understand our LORD’s third commandment, I must disagree. Let me share five important reasons why expressing Oh My G**! is absolutely wrong.
