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 around the area of Jerusalem. His purpose was to share His identity as the way, the truth and the light to God.  

Even as a child of twelve, everyone who heard Jesus was amazed at his understanding and His answers while discussing scripture.  Jesus could have saved Himself from the agony of the cross, but chose not to.  Why? Continue reading

GOD is NOT a woman!

God is not a woman

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

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.

Do You Know JESUS LOVES YOU?

Do you know Jesus loves you?

You’ve probably heard the song,  Jesus Loves Me, as a child growing up. Most likely you sang it in Sunday School. There is a beautiful rendition of Whitney Houston singing it on GodTube.

Both of those versions inspire Christians young and old to feel love. But to really understand the depth of Jesus’ love, one has to dig deeper.  We must experience the words of the Bible.    Continue reading

3 Steps To Jesus!

3 steps to Jesus

Jesus, the Son of God, wants to have a personal relationship with you!

That is why Jesus left His throne in heaven and came down to earth. Jesus knew the only way for sinners (and we all sin, falling short of the glory of God) to enter into the presence of God is by atonement for sin. 

Someone had to pay the penalty for our sin, thus removing its evil effects from the repentant sinner.  Only this action would allow for reconciliation to God, since God can not be in the presence of sin.

Thankfully,  Jesus paid the price for all sin. Continue reading
