Have I Got a Story for You!

Let me tell you a story about how God works. Awhile back a couple moved to our town from Ontario and began to attend the Bible study. As they were retired they decided to give some of their time to missions. They heard of an exciting mission opportunity in Hawaii where they met a wonderful […]

In God’s Hands

I’ve been reading a great deal about prayer lately trying to jumpstart my prayer life. Of all the Christian disciplines this one is the hardest for me to grasp and hold onto. It is not because I don’t want to talk to God or don’t feel worthy or anything like that, it is just because […]

A Friendly Bible Study

I spent yesterday afternoon and evening praying and studying with a couple of friends. We didn’t always agree on every point of the discussion but that is not the point of Bible study. We search the Word of God to grow spiritually and as long as we allow the Holy Spirit to lead we have […]

Putting Jesus First

1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having […]

“2 We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. 3 We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has […]

Why don’t we invite more friends to church? It’s a simple question but the answers to that question may be much more complicated than we think. We might tell ourselves that people would be uncomfortable with our church and its old fashioned ways or they might not like the contemporary style of our church. But, […]

Where Do We Begin?

Can we really fault so many young people for not accepting Christianity when we present it so poorly? Let me ask you a question and see if you can answer it honestly. If you were sitting in a coffee shop (some of you are turned off already) and a young person entered the business, bought […]

Feeling Guilty?

I’ve been awake since three o’clock this morning thinking about this posting. I seldom have a problem with finding a topic to write about because my ramblings are almost totally drawn from what I have been studying or thinking about, but this morning I have drawn a blank. First thought out of my head is […]

Refocusing Our Mind

We read and study the Bible but so often we seem to only be mouthing words and the reality and life changing aspects of the Scripture allude us. I’ve noticed in my own reading that I can finish a half-hour of study but the text hasn’t affected my life or seeped deep into my heart. […]

Infected With the Joy of God!

How’s your world today? We are almost frightened to turn on the news these days because of the bad news that streams from every broadcast. Is it possible that so many evil things can be happening every day in our world? The answer of course is yes. We live in a world where people behead […]
