  • Grace is the difference between Christianity and other religions

    I read recently of an incident that happened many years ago during a British conference on the different world religions.

  • People not only need God, but they need each other

    I was asked to attend a men’s prayer breakfast a few weeks ago, and the study in God’s word was from Matthew 7, “Judge not that you be not judged.”

    For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. After the Scripture was read, there were several comments from those attending, including me. After the meeting concluded and I was driving back home, I believe the Lord asked me how I was doing in keeping this word of His. I had to admit, not so good at times.

  • God’s mercy and grace act much like Priestley’s eraser

    You have probably never heard of Joseph Priestley. If you have ever made a mistake in writing, you owe him a bit of thanks because he is the man who invented the eraser. 

    Priestley lived in the 1700s in England and was the son of a minister. As an adult, he came to America and was, for a time, a Unitarian minister.  He seemed more interested in chemistry than theology, however, and the invention of the eraser came to Priestley when he studied the sap of a South American tree newly introduced to Europe. 

  • The importance of family is found in the Word of God

    Many parents worry for their families, and especially for their children’s future. But the actual question would be, what is really being done for them?
    We think that having a good job, a good house and a good car, providing them with food, buying them clothes and giving them an education so that they face the future on their own, means that we have accomplished our job as parents. But what about moral principles and, most importantly, what about God’s principles?

  • Story offers lesson on how to be grateful for blessings

    Luke 17:12-19 says: “As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’
    ‘When he saw them, he said, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed.
    ‘One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
