For the last few weeks a high volume of Christians have been deep in the trenches, drawn together doing what we do best in all situations—Praying! Prayer is a powerful thing! When family (as well as ourselves), friends, anyone—including our government—is suffering, Christians ALWAYS offer prayer.
In the midst of Washington D.C. battling itself, Republicans versus Democrats over the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, I have noticed fervent requests for Christians to pray.Continue reading →
October 4 is Bring Your Bible To School Day! How fantastic is that?
The event, started byFocus on the Familyin 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 →
Not unusual for Hollywood, the Emmy Awards this week applauded one if its hosts, Michael Che, telling the audience that his mother was not watching the show —“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough. That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
Hmmmm, assuming Mrs. Che is a Christian, because Michael did say she wants Jesus to be thanked more, I wonder if Mrs. Che enjoyed her son’s joke at Christian’s expense?Continue reading →
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 –
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 →
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 asthe way, the truth and the lightof God.
Even while Jesus was a youngchild 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 →
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 →
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 →
