• How are your resolutions? You do not need to change to be acceptable to Jesus

    This is the last week of January, which means your New Year’s resolutions are probably standing on shaky ground … that is, if they’re standing at all. It has been almost four weeks since you vowed to exercise more, eat healthier foods or watch less television. You probably started very strong. Perhaps you joined a gym, stocked up on organic vegetables or bought some books to read.  However, life has happened again, and four weeks into 2015 you have realized that the same things that prevented you from fulfilling your resolutions in 2014 have not gone away.

  • Humans are God’s special creation, set apart and above all other beings

    The so-called smart people will tell you that life on this planet originated several billion years ago. They will tell you that electrical disturbances caused reactions to occur in the chemicals of the primeval ocean, and these reactions produced amino acids that organized themselves into living cells They will tell you that man is the highest product of this development, he is an immediate descendent from the same ancestors as the apes, and he is, himself, still developing.

  • A batch of random thoughts, including to love neighbor and bear their burdens

    Once a month or so, I make my husband a huge pot of vegetable soup and divide it into small plastic containers to put in the freezer for his lunch.

    Usually, my soup is delicious, except for the batch I just made. I forgot to put in the chopped onion and my husband said it was way too salty.

  • Why does the change sometimes seem so slow?

    Have you ever noticed how change happens quicker in some Christian’s than others. The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17….”Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

  • Find time this post-holiday season to be present with God and with one another

    I don’t know how it works at your house, but usually at ours by the day after Christmas we have had our fill of Christmas songs, decorations and wrapping paper. We get ‘wore out’ on Christmas. I think it’s due to sensory overload.

  • It is because of Christ that we have Christmas

    Read this parody of the Christmas season that I recently read:

    “And there were in the same country children keeping watch over their stockings by the fireplace. And lo! And was said unto them Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that is for all people who can afford them.”

  • The word of God demonstrates his omnipotent power, authority

    We talk about the birth of the little baby Jesus. We talk about him being born eight miles outside Jerusalem, in the town of Bethlehem. 

    We talk about him lying in a manger, no crib for a bed. But when we fail to talk about his deity, when we fail to acknowledge that he is God, not only, do we miss the true meaning of Christmas, we also miss the very foundation of Christianity.
