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
Are you following God’s word, being set apart with divine favor and protection?
I hope you do chose God’s blessings because:
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
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
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
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.
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
The last seven weeks have been devoted to sharing the person of Jesus. The posts explain who He is, why He came down to us, and what He did for us through His death on the cross.
Most critically, the posts point to the need to believe that three days after Jesus’ death on Calgary hill, He rose from the dead, then forty days later ascended into heaven!
When we believe Jesus is the The Son of the Most High God, that He came to share and live God’s word, and that His death then resurrection occurred, life as we know it changes. Continue reading
Absolute biblical recordings reveal God punished those who did not believe or obey what He said. And He rewarded or blessed those who believed His word, following His commands.
The Old Testament shares with us the prophets, those who spoke to the nation of Israel, disclosing His message to them. The prophets did not use their own words, only the words spoken to them from God. But that changed in the New Testament. In the time of Jesus, a new covenant was made that was to be followed. Continue reading
Absolute biblical recordings reveal witnesses to this extreme historic event. Jesus did arise from the dead! There are so many witnesses to His resurrection, it becomes unfathomable how doubters make claims against documented facts.
Thankfully, though the physical body of Jesus is gone His spiritual presence lives forever! The miracle of Jesus raised to life from death is central in Christianity. There is no one else who walked this earth that man slaughtered, then came back to life! Continue reading
Absolute biblical recordings reveal witnesses to this extreme historic event. Jesus did die on the cross. There are so many witnesses to His death, it becomes unfathomable how doubters could make claims against documented facts.
Thankfully, it was only Jesus’ temporary human body that died. The spirt of Jesus lives! And that miracle, the miracle of Jesus raised to life from death is central in Christianity. There is no one else who walked this earth that man slaughtered, then came back to life!
